Talk on angels in Nepal set for Unity

Staff reports

Jerri Curry will share her encounter with angels in Nepal at the Unity Church of Today on Sunday at the Genoa Community Church.

In a workshop 12:30-3:30 p.m., the family practice therapist and mediator will tell of her hike to a monastery at the base of Mt. Everest in the Himalayas at 12,680 feet, where she contracted altitude sickness.

She was coughing up phlegm and blood and experiencing dizziness on the trail from Lukia, Nepal at 9,300 feet to the monastery, where she hoped to meet with His Holiness Tinpoche Ngawang Tenzing.

Curry used visualization techniques to keep going. She visualized little angels shoveling the fluid out of her lungs and getting behind her and pushing her up the trail.

She was able to reach the monastery and met with the lama on Christmas Day. However, she had to be carried back down the trail by Sherpa guides, and when she arrived at Katmandu, doctors were amazed that she survived the ordeal.

Curry’s trip has taught her to believe in the power of angels. She said, “The world is coming together. We’re coming together and the angels are here to help us understand.”

She recovered and returned home to her career as a licensed family practice therapist and family and business mediator. She has devoted a great deal of her professional career to the issues of missing and exploited children and holds a bachelor and master of arts degree from the University of San Francisco in the area of public administration and counseling and received a doctorate in clinical psychology.

She serves as a superior court mediator and forensic consultant.

Curry is a long-time Presbyterian and has recently been attending the Unity Church in Marin County, Calif.

A suggested love offering is $20 for the workshop, but no one will be turned away. She will be guest speaker at the regular 10:30 a.m. service at the church, located on Nixon Street in Genoa. People attending the morning service are asked to take a lunch dish to share.
