Natural Awakenings Tucson

Noted Scholar James Finley to Appear in Tucson

James Finley, Ph.D., lived as a monk at the cloistered Trappist monastery of the Abbey of Gethsemani, in Kentucky, where the world-renowned monk and author Thomas Merton was his spiritual director. Finley will host a three-day conference, Spirituality of Healing—Transforming Trauma: Taking the 7 Steps of Spiritual Healing, from June 20 through 22 at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador.

Drawing on his experience as a clinical psychologist and his knowledge of contemplative traditions, Finley will guide participants in exploring the seven steps to becoming a healing presence in the midst of a suffering world.

Finley leads retreats and workshops throughout the United States and Canada, attracting men and women from all religious traditions that seek to live a contemplative way of life in the midst of today’s busy world.
