DARIEN, Conn. -- Pear Tree Point School in Darien invites parents and community members to attend a talk given by psychologist and acclaimed author Dr. Lisa Miller on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. in the Louise Parker Berry Community Room on the first floor at The Darien Library.

Dr. Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and power of spirituality. She defines spirituality as being "an innate nature to seek and perceive transcendence, a connection to a larger universe. These abilities and drives can work together to develop a two-way relationship with a high power - God, the creator, the universe, or nature for example.”

With the understanding that our community represents a range of beliefs and religions, her focus is on cultivating our children’s natural spirituality. She also shows that a person can be spiritual without being highly religious.

Dr. Miller explains the link between spirituality and health by demonstrating that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality are:

  • 40 percent less likely to use and abuse substances
  • 60 percent less likely to be depressed as teenagers
  • 80 percent less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex
  • More likely to thrive and achieve high levels of academic success

Space is limited and spots will be booked on a first come, first served basis. Guests are asked to RSVP to CDaifotis@ptpschool.org.
