Authors Roland Comtois and Dr. Joel Evans Featured as Keynote

July 20 marks the second anniversary of long-time Stamford resident Reverend Tullia Forlani Kidde’s passing in 2007. To mark the occasion, author Roland Comtois, an acclaimed international spiritualist, and Dr. Joel Evans, founder and director of The Center for Women’s Health in Darien, author and international teacher of holistic, body, mind and spirit medicine, will be hosting a FREE afternoon of metaphysical teachings and channeling on compassion in Reverend Kidde’s honor. The tribute, Lessons from Heaven: The Meaning of a Compassionate Heart, will be held on July 19 from 4 to 5 PM at the Albertson Memorial Church in Old Greenwich. Admission is free but donations can be made to the Albertson Memorial Church Farm Sanctuary of Watkins Glen.

Reverend Kidde, an ordained interfaith minister well known for her work with Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of many best-selling novels on patient empowerment including Love, Medicine and Miracles, and her personal experience of a spontaneous healing from "terminal" cancer 25 years ago, devoted her life to helping others. A graduate of The Westchester Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, she completed post-graduate work in spiritual counseling and spent the last several years of her life working at The Center for Women’s Health in Darien where she provided individual counseling, facilitated cancer support groups, gave lectures and led workshops on spiritual healing.

“Tullia was a great teacher and mentor to those of us who had the privilege of knowing her,” said Roland Comtois. “She was an inspiration who shared an unequalled sense of compassion for every living being. She once said that, ‘It is the purity of your intention… the vibration that you send out… that matters in living a life with compassion.’ She taught us that each person matters and each of has the power to make a difference.”

Roland said that Tullia lived her life by example, actively finding ways to help alleviate another’s suffering through her compassion. Ranked highly in numerous philosophies and religions, compassion is said to be among the greatest virtues of all. The Dalai Lama is credited with saying, “if you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.” Tullia did both.

Learn how compassion can open the heart of humanity and create a fortress of renewal inside every soul at this heartfelt and inspirational discussion by two renowned experts in the field.

Reservations are not required but seating is limited. The FREE one-hour event begins promptly at 4 PM on Sunday, July 19, at Albertson Memorial Church, 293 Sound Beach Avenue in Old Greenwich, Connecticut. For more information, call Cindy Clarke at 203.454.4230.
