Making the Shift:

A Compass for the Journey

6 consecutive Tuesdays, 4-6pm beginning on October 11th and ending on November 15th

at the Cuvilly Arts & Earth Center

Have you ever wished to explore the mysteries where science and spirituality converge? For Sister Mary Friel this journey began well before her PhD studies in counseling psychology when, after being introduced to Teilhard de Chardin's The Phenomenon of Man in the early sixties, she participated in Teilhard group discussions led by Fr. Thomas Berry at the Riverdale Center of Religious Research along the banks of the Hudson River.

Sister Mary continued with these transformational small group encounters while she evolved from high school biology teacher through her doctoral studies and ultimate professorship. As a Professor Emerata of Western Connecticut State University, Sr. Mary taught many courses as well as co-founding the MS in counseling and, in the undergraduate program, a major in women's studies.


A Sister of Notre Dame, Sr, Mary bring an engaging six week course of discovering a fresh way of understanding our universe and our place in it thourgh the lens of the prophets Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry, Joanna Macy, and Diarmuid O'Murchu, among others. Their wisdom will support you in the great work of personal, social, and ecological transformation.
