AuthorsLive@Byram Presents Jane Wyker
Author Jane Wyker will be in conversation with poet Ira Joe Fisher as she discusses her book, Soul Selfish: The Awakening of a “Good Girl,” on Saturday, June 10 at 3 p.m., at the Byram Shubert Library.
In her recently published memoir, Wyker shares the experience of her 46-year inner journey. Working in over a dozen different psychological, mind-body and spiritual disciplines, she had the courage and faith to follow the guidance of many teachers, and ultimately her own soul. Now 81, she models a life that is created from within, demonstrating that sustained happiness rests upon soul connection.
A Cornell graduate and former elementary school teacher, Wyker was a pioneer in parent education, opening her Parents School in the ‘70s, before “parenting“ was a word. When students requested private sessions, she started her 29-year Family Counseling practice. She later presented seminars in Fortune 500 companies, helping parents balance work and family, a topic she understood intimately as she managed her thriving career while raising four children and pursuing her spiritual growth.
