Stephen G. Post, PhD and Dr. Joanna Kaczorowska
Join Stephen Post and violinist Joanna Kaczorowska for an evening of storytelling, conversation, and music to celebrate the launch of Stephen’s new book, God and Love on Route 80.
We all have intuitions. A mother senses something is wrong with her child. A young man meets the love of his life on a spontaneous adventure. We take a leap of faith, and everything falls into place. These are not uncommon happenings. People have impressions, they have premonitions, they have dreams—these senses are our guides through the obstacle-course of life. Stephen Post payed attention to these whispers. His enchanted journey demonstrates the magic waiting for all of us, if only we open our eyes and hearts to what we hear.
God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness is a remarkable true story of faith, love, and destiny. Join Stephen for an inspiring and spiritually uplifting evening to freely share those extraordinary moments in your life when you encountered just the right person at the right time; when everything clicked into place; or when a dream or deep intuition guided you to the wisdom we all find by paying close attention to the loving force guiding us to our destinies if we dare to take the journey.
Stephen is considered the “go to guy” with his uplifting message that when we contribute to the lives of others, give meaningfully, and life by the Golden Rule, we are generally much happier, healthier, and more creative and successful.
During this evening he will share about:
1.How to listen for the Whispers of the Divine
2.The latest science on spiritual experience and self-transcendence in relation to higher emotions like kindness, joy, and hope.
3.An Infinite Mind and how we are all truly connected.
4.How in giving of yourself, you can discover a deeper self.
5.The health benefits you can experience through meaningful work and purpose in life.
Note: There will be a book signing after this event. You can purchase the book at the Open Center bookstore.

God and Love on Route 80: The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness
by Stephen G. Post, PhD
“Stephen G. Post in this highly readable and deeply profound book shares his journey to that which is whole, holy, and healed in all of us. Beyond the secret passages, the dark alleys and ghost filled attics of our individual conditioned and separate minds there is a single infinite boundless awareness that differentiates into all observers, all modes of observation and all objects observed. We can call it Ein Sof, Brahman, Nonlocal mind, God, Allah or the Self. Transcendence to this domain is the experience of absolute love and spontaneous creativity, intuition, insight, and higher vision.”
—Deepak Chopra, MD, author of You Are the Universe: Discovering Your Cosmic Self and Why It Matters and of Synchrodestiny: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles
“You must be ready when you open this book. It’s a microburst of searching faith in a God of Love (be alert for the “blue angel”) and a spiritual and intellectual stance that everything in the universe- you, me, crickets, galaxies, microbes, stars, life, death-is connected. For the author who shares his awakening with us, the “blue angel” offers him not only comfort but the bracing challenge to love others with a generous heart way beyond self-aggrandizement. Or, simply put, as God loves. It takes a large and open heart to take in the invitation to faith of this vocation story. I’m more alive and alert now for having read it.”
—Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking and a soon-to-be-published memoir, River of Fire: My Spiritual Journey (Random House August 13, 2019)
