Grace Episcopal Hosts Chattanooga Roundtable

Friday, November 15, 2013

The Joseph Campbell Mythological Roundtable of Chattanooga will meet this Monday at Grace Episcopal Church, 20 Belvoir Ave. The program will be Psychological Archetypes of Carolyn Myss, presented by Janet Watts.  

Janet Watts has studied with Carolyn Myss for 13 years and has traveled to Spain, Peru, India and Canada to attend her lectures and see the countryside through the eyes of this incredible medical intuitive steeped in knowledge of the mystics, mysticism, jungian archetypes and the universal laws of nature.  Janet's formal education is in Zoology, Chemistry, and Business Administration. She has lived in Chattanooga, working at TVA for 20 years and her pastimes in addition to being a student of Myss involve therapeutic yoga, scuba diving, hiking and travel. 
The Roundtable meets at Grace Episcopal at 7 p.m. on the third floor, the Merritt Room.  This room is most easily accessed from the parking lot off of Sunbeam.  Come up the sidewalk toward the church nave and turn right at the breezeway.  Turn left inside the building, and the meeting room is mid-hallway on the right.  

Roundtable meetings are open to the public.  Visitors and guests are welcome.  There is no charge to attend, though a small donation to support the Roundtable program and our host Grace church is appreciated. For more information, please contact Diana Peterson at

Steve Ellison: Christian Citizenship

Even without television in my home, I have not been able to escape the shroud of evil that we have cast over the current election.  Sadly, it seems that we could not have come up with two more unqualified candidates for POTUS if we had sat down and plotted a course with that as our end goal.  However, it seems to me that this fact is not our biggest problem concerning ...

Bob Tamasy: Peace - Pursuing The Elusive

Peace. Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Seems peaceful just to say the word. “Peace” – aaaahhhh! If only finding and experiencing peace were so easy, right? When was the last time you truly felt at peace? Maybe you’re an easygoing, glass-is-half-full type of person that’s seldom ruffled. If so, congratulations. Your “peace meter” probably registers a lot higher on the scale than for ...

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Picture a sold-out baseball game at Wrigley Field or Nationals Park packed with 40,000 fans. That image represents roughly the same number of women and men who die from breast cancer each year.  In Tennessee alone, an estimated 900 women will die from the disease in 2016. It is a sad statistic, but there is some good news: thanks to early detection and improved treatments, ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Testerman Forum

I badly misjudged how long it would take me to do my “early voting.” I was in-and-out in no time so I got to the Hamilton County School Board’s agenda meeting well enough beforehand to have an “educational forum” with board member David Testerman. If you haven’t noticed, forums and summits and “community enlightenment” groups are the new rage and, as my friend David laughed, “They ... (click for more)
