USCB set to welcome author Barb Schmidt to Dataw

On Wednesday, January 13th, meet author Barb Schmidt at a luncheon in the Carolina Room at the Dataw Club. Author of The Practice, Barb Schmidt radiates enthusiasm and passion. She is one of those rare individuals who shows that she truly cares in every aspect of her life. She is a businesswoman, philanthropist, and spiritual teacher with over thirty years devoted to spiritual development and research. She has studied with Thich Nhat Hanh, Deepak Chopra, Scott Peck, and Marianne Williamson, among many other notable teachers. As founder of Spirit of Giving Network and cofounder and past president of Ronald McDonald Children Charities of South Florida, Barb raised millions of dollars for children and families in need.

In The Practice, Barb shares how to integrate a spiritual practice with daily life. This small book supplies a very practical answer by setting out clear guidelines on how to transform our daily round into a spiritual path. This includes instruction on being present in the moment with focused attention, mantra recitation, and opening the heart to all others in gratitude and loving kindness. This beautiful book is filled with practical advice and inspirational instruction.

Having embarked on a spiritual search and practiced sincerely for many years, Barb Schmidt herself radiates the intelligence and harmonious kindness that she teaches. So this book is the result of her own experience and will appeal to anyone – irrespective of religious affiliations – interested in traveling the spiritual path.

Registration begins at 11:30 and lunch will be served at noon. For further information, contact USCB Center for the Arts at (843) 521-4145.
