Writers Salon – Jim Atwell
Jun 21 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Writers Salon - Jim Atwell @ CANO

Jim Atwell grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, and then spent fourteen years in the Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic teaching order, as Brother Denis Andrew, FSC. After the time as a brother came two-dozen years as a community college professor and college administrator. Now in retirement, he still lives a full life of lecturing and writing. Jim’s first marriage to fellow academic Gwen Vosburgh ended with her death at forty-seven from pancreatic cancer. He and graphic designer Anne Geddes-Atwell have now been married for twenty years. A Quaker minister, Jim has spoken from pulpits in every major denomination and lectures widely on comparative religion, most often with a stress on ecumenism.

As a writer, Jim has had published over a thousand newspaper columns and articles, plus two books to date. Jim Atwell holds Master’s degrees in English and theology, plus a doctorate in English language and literature. Jim has lived in rural New York State for the last twenty-five years, delighting in amateur farming. But Parkinson’s Disease ended home-raised vegetables, berries, and fruits; no more chickens and fresh eggs, turkeys, pigs, sheep, and heifers. Now Jim and Anne are happily settled in Cooperstown, N.Y., with much smaller livestock holdings: Cassie, an affable Border Collie, and her self-contained companion cat, Gracie.

Jenny found her passion for healing through her own journey of healing herself of seven years of chronic disease in 3 weeks.

In her practice, Jenny has seen clients heal from depression, cancer, MS and many other challenges. Jenny has been featured on PBS’s “The Whitney Reynolds Show.” Jenny has recently come out with her own healing modality “BE LIGHT Energy Healing” which is a self-healing modality as well as one that will help others.

Jenny’s first book, “A Short Path to Change: 30 Ways to Transform Your Life” acts as a guide for people to refer to in their day to day life situations with a series of really short, easy tools that can be as fast as a few seconds to a few minutes. In using these tools, you can begin to create real, lasting change in your life whether it be emotionally, physically, mentally, financially or relationally.
