Featuring an Evening with

Kevin McCauley

Nov. 4, 2016

After completion of medical school, Kevin McCauley, a graduate of the Medical College of Pennsylvania, joined the Navy and became a Naval Flight Surgeon. After earning his wings at Pensacola, Florida he was assigned to a Marine helicopter squadron (The Red Lions). Later he was transferred to Marine F/A-18 Hornet squadron (Sharpshooters). While working as a flight surgeon he treated pilots with alcohol and drug problems. As a physician, he advocates strongly for the rights of addicts as patients.

Film Screening: Pleasure Unwoven
The most important question about addiction is: "Is it really a "disease?" In this video essay, filmed in high-definition, Kevin McCauley explores the arguments for and against this vital debate, reviewing the latest neuroscientific research about addiction along the way. Using the spectacular landscape of Utah's State and National Parks to describe the brain areas involved in addiction, Kevin McCauley turns complex neuroscientific concepts into easy-to-understand visual images that will help people in recovery feel better understood, and their families and friends feel hope that recovery is possible.

Optional 1/2 day seminar on Nov. 2 with

Tom Ryan
Author of Ashamed No More

Spiritual Wholeness in a Sexually Broken World: The purpose of this seminar is to help us think about how we see our sexuality, understand sexual brokenness and consider strategic ways by which we can help ourselves, each other and the Church become healthier in handling human sexuality and growing as spiritual, healthy people.
