CI Professor of Biology Dr. Nitika Parmar will visit the Ojai Library at 1 p.m. on Saturday, December 9 to deliver a presentation titled “The Spiritual Basis of Life: The Link between Body and Soul.” Dr. Parmar comes from CSU Channel Islands (CI), and is the final speaker in this season’s CI Library Lecture Series.
Does the soul exist? Is it distinct from the body? Our bodies are highly complex machines, but what provides the consciousness to the body? Understanding the difference between body and soul is the beginning of spiritual life. This talk will compare the nature of the body and the soul and discuss how understanding both can help us achieve a better quality of life. Topics will include features of the soul, evidence of its presence, and its association with the body.
CSU Channel Islands hosts dozens of free public lectures at libraries throughout Ventura County as part of this program. The lecturers are experts from numerous departments at CI, including Biology, History, English, Computer Science, Political Science, Performing Arts, and Sociology to name a few.
This event is free and open to the public. The Ojai Library is located at 111 East Ojai Ave. Hours of service are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
