The Well Offers Hope, Not Doom in 2012

The Well Offers Hope, Not Doom in 2012
December 21, 2012, is the doomsday some predict for planet Earth when a radical “pole shift” will generate earthquakes, volcanoes and every kind of natural disaster, or various astronomical bodies will collide with or incinerate Earth.

Though apocalypse is far from certain, the breakdown of economic, cultural, social, government, religious, corporate and natural systems seems to be happening. The Well, a spirituality center sponsored by the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph in LaGrange Park, addresses what director Bridget Sperduto calls our “crisis moment” by hosting a program entitled, “Evolutionary Christianity and Conscious Evolution” with eminent futurist and social innovator Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Rev. Bruce Sanguin, author of “If Darwin Prayed: Prayers for Evolutionary Mystics.”

On Friday and Saturday, January 27th and 28th, Hubbard and Rev. Sanguin will offer the perspective that our “crisis moment” is actually a birth event. Systemic breakdown, they claim, is driving the breakthrough of a new consciousness of care and compassion, a fuller revelation of the Christ. Participants will learn how to actively and intentionally take part in the birth, in the breakthrough.

Cost for this extraordinary event is $125 and includes lunch on Saturday. The Well is located at 1515 W. Ogden Ave. in LaGrange Park.

As a follow-up to this program, “Journey of the Universe,” a film on the epic story of cosmic, Earth and human transformation will be shown on Monday, January 31st at 7:00 p.m.; discussion will follow the film.
The cost for the movie is a freewill offering.

Registration is by phone at 708-482-5088; online at or by email at
