“Author Jane Wyker will be in conversation with poet Ira Joe Fisher as they discuss her recently released memoir Soul Selfish at the Ridgefield Library on Monday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m.
In Soul Selfish Wyker shares the experience of her 46-year inner journey. Working in more than a dozen different psychological, mind-body and spiritual disciplines, she had the courage and faith to follow the guidance of many teachers, and ultimately her own soul. Now 80, she models a life that is created from within, demonstrating that sustained happiness rests upon soul connection.
Jane’s journey has taken her through marriage, parenting, divorce, forgiveness, loss and new love. She learned that when she is selfish enough to take care of her soul, love and wisdom flow.
A Cornell graduate and former elementary school teacher, Jane Wyker was a pioneer in parent education, opening her Parents School in the ’70s, before parenting was a word. When students requested private sessions, she started her 29-year family counseling practice and later presented seminars in Fortune 500 companies, helping parents balance work and family.” –Ridgefield Press, August 29, 2016
