Houston, Texas 77008
ONLINE MEETING ON APRIL 4, 2020
Title of Talk: EZosophy Philosophy
Speaker: Rev. Anne Sermons Gillis. M.S.
Time: 10:00 a.m.
Brief Description of the Talk:
Anne Sermons Gillis brought this philosophy into being in the 1980’s, after recognizing the endemic, habituated, ego-driven-suffering (EDS) we bring to our society. Spiritual study and service should not be threaded together by somberness, studded by intellectualism. It should be enlivening and bring us to deeper states of creativity and knowing. Gillis makes a distinction between ego-driven-suffering and genuine suffering. Maybe you would like to be an EZosophist Theosophist!
Bio of the Speaker:
Rev. Anne Sermons Gillis has a BPS in Recreation Therapy and Gerontology and a Master of Science in Counseling. She is a minister, and, in 1984, she co-founded Connection Church (Connection Center for Spiritual Growth) in Memphis, TN, and served as the senior spiritual guide until 1998. She moved to Houston, Texas as a result of a strong inner urging and met her mate two weeks after arriving. They married five years later.
Gillis is the founder of the EZosophy movement. Thousands currently benefit from the principles of EZosophy. Her humor and frivolity set her aside from many teachers. She is sincere, but not serious. Gillis contends that life is not as hard as we make it; it is time to lighten up and enjoy life. “Our work and lives are an expression of love, not a chance to punish ourselves with relentless doing.”
As a spiritual seeker, Anne has traveled around the world in her quest to live life to the fullest. She has presented to such groups as Unity, Science of Mind, and Unitarian Universalist churches, Earth Savers (Quezon City, Philippines), United Way, The U. S. Navy, Addiction Conferences, The Global Forum (Rio de Janeiro) and A Course in Miracles conferences. She is a longtime activist for sustainable living, human rights, political reform, and peace.
Gillis has been called the foremost expert on ease. She is an international speaker, author of five books, a breath worker, and a personal growth coach. She is a past President of the Houston Lodge of the Theosophical Society. Gillis publishes a weekly newsletter, The EZ Secret. Anne’s wisdom, humor, and exuberant presentation style make learning fun. Armed with years of experience in human dynamics, Gillis consistently delivers more than promised. She teaches people how to have accomplishment without struggle, by presenting refreshing material that is immediately usable. “Life is not meant to be a series of to-do lists punctuated by eating and sleeping.” says Gillis.
