Christian Scientist talk

The First Church of Christ, Scientist, will host a free, hourlong talk titled “The Healing Power of Stillness” at 3 p.m. Sun., May 20 at the Oak Park Community Center and Gardens, 1000 Kanan Road.

Larissa Snorek-Yates will speak on how the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science, can help persons find and keep a deep-settled calm that cannot be disrupted by fear or an outward disturbance. This stillness is said to bring rest and healing to lives.

Snorek-Yates, an international lecturer and healer, has a professional background in mediation, human rights advocacy and teaching. Her formal education is in sustainability and peace building.

Fluent in French and English, she has given talks in Africa, Europe, Canada, Australia and throughout the U.S.

The talk is open to the community. For more information, call (805) 495-8203 or go to PrayerThatHeals.org.
