Dr. James Finley to Speak in Tulsa
Dr. James Finley, author and teacher of contemplative prayer, will present a one-day conference from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 16. The conference, “The Mystical Dimension of the 12 Steps for Us All,” will be held at the Monte Cassino School located at 2200 S. Lewis Ave. in Tulsa.
The conference will focus on a spiritual and mystical practice that can enhance the understanding and practice of 12-step programs. Topics will include understanding addiction, prayer and meditation, and finding internal peace. Finley has shared this presentation twice at the Betty Ford Center, an addiction treatment center in Palm Springs, Calif.
Finley, a clinical psychologist in private practice in Santa Monica, Calif., was once a Trappist monk and studied under Thomas Merton. Finley is also the author of several books, including “Merton’s Palace of Nowhere” and “Meditations for Christians.”
