What is transcendentalism and how does it fit into modern life? Are you a transcendentalist??? Come learn about transcendentalism from a twenty-first century Concord transcendentalist, Reverend Dr. Jim Sherblom! His journey led him from poverty to Harvard Business School, then from biotech entrepreneur to Brookline Minister through a series of vision quests and theological studies. He emerged as a spiritual teacher and preacher. Jim will lead you on an imaginary journey over some wild trails that Henry David Thoreau so often walked, leading to Walden Pond and beyond. The verbal journey begins at noon on Sunday, April 15, 2018.  Following Jim’s talk, join him for a transcendental walk through the wildness of Walden Pond. Jim will also be available to sign copies of his new book, Spiritual Audacity.  Part memoir, part philosophical history, and part manual for living, Spiritual Audacity guides you from black and white to color, from formless to form, from dark to light, and from curious to enlightened.
