An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living” by Krista Tippett, facilitated by Mary Rees, Susan Richane, and Carolyn DeHority. After an introduction to Krista Tippett and her book, Becoming Wise, we will explore the issues of:

  • How our childhood faith and spiritual background influences us throughout life.

  • Our inherent ability to grow in compassion and other virtues through rituals and neuroplasticity.

Krista Tippett is a Peabody Award-winning broadcaster and a New York Times bestselling author. In 2014, she received the National Humanities Medal at the White House for “thoughtfully delving into the mysteries of human existence.” She is the host of the public radio program and podcast On Being.
