Connect with Your Inner Self at the Rothko Chapel

Feeling directionless, disconnected and adrift is an experience all too common for many in today’s fast-paced world.

The Rothko Chapel is working to change that – offering its Modern Meditation series as an antidote.

“Twelve Moments: Experiencing Spiritual and Faith Traditions” is designed to help people learn spiritual practices to quiet, center, expand and renew their minds.

The next event will be led by Dr. Jerry M. Ruhl and is scheduled for noon on Wednesday, May 4 at the Rothko Chapel, located at 3900 Yupon.  The suggested donation is $10.

“Dr. Ruhl’s wealth of knowledge, experience and perspective are vast,” Michelle Ashton, public programs director for the Rothko Chapel, said. “We hope the community will join us for this great opportunity to learn about meditation and spend time at the Chapel.”

Dr. Jerry M. Ruhl

Dr. Ruhl is a teacher, author and psychologist in private practice. Earlier in life he worked as a journalist, then managed communications for two major corporations. At mid-life, he felt he was moving in the wrong direction and began studying the works of Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung, while observing spiritual practices in Japan, Bali, Thailand, Nepal and India.

Dr. Ruhl earned his doctorate from Pacifica Graduate Institute, working to develop a holistic model for coping with life-changing accidents and illness. He was formerly a trustee of the C.G. Jung Society of Colorado and served for more than six years as executive director of the Jung Center of Houston.

Dr. Ruhl now presents seminars and workshops across the nation. He also conducts dream groups, in which participants help interpret one another’s dreams in the tradition of Jung.

The Twelve Moments series is co-sponsored by Ligmincha Texas Institute, the Jung Center of Houston and M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.
