Please join us at the Hoffman Center from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, January 28 for refreshments, a reading and book talk.
Local author Judith Allen will introduce her recently published novel Looking Through Water.
In Looking Through Water, Allen juxtaposes the metaphysical and the mundane in an exploration of human failings and superhuman gifts on the northern Oregon coast in the Forties.
The question of how healing happens has been a fire in the bones for author Judith Allen since her early years growing up on the northern Oregon coast. In fifteen years as Director of the Reed Miracles Center and The Healing Place (an Attitudinal Healing Center) in Portland, Oregon, she has met and sponsored many healers, and learned a great deal about the nature and practice of healing.
Her 30-year career in educational research, writing, speaking and teaching includes a PhD in Psychology of Instruction, publication in many academic journals and magazines, a number of textbooks, and a non-fiction account of her own recovery in the 1980’s from metastasized cancer, The Five Stages of Death and Dying Getting Well. This is her first novel.
She lives in Manzanita with her husband, Jack, and continues to explore the dynamics of physical, emotional, and spiritual healing.
