We're delighted to partner with the Institute for Career Advancement Needs (iCAN) and Methodist Health System to be apart of "An Evening with Deepak Chopra" event and hope that you will too. At this inspirational evening, Deepak will share his latest work and how your highest vision of yourself can become reality. In practical terms, Deepak will unfold three keys to creating the self you desire – The Soul Shift, Subtle Action, and Core Participation.
Deepak will explain how the greatest spiritual secrets are tied up in this simple answer... "You can't change the body without changing the self, and you can't change the self without bringing in the soul," he declares. "It's all one process, and it begins with knowing that your body exists to mirror who you are and who you want to be."
There will also be an opportunity to meet Deepak at a VIP Reception prior to the general event. VIP registration includes premiere seating and admission to the private reception.
Tickets start at $29. Purchase tickets at icanomaha.org

One of our most popular programs is back! This year's Interfaith Architecture Tour will be held on Saturday, March 27, from 1:30- 5:00 pm and will explore historic places of worship in North Omaha, an area of historical and cultural richness and the traditional center of Omaha's African-American community.
The tour begins at St. John African Methodist Episcopal Church, 2402 N. 22nd St., at 1:30 p.m (check-in starts at 1:00 pm). St. John AME Church is the oldest African-American congregation in Nebraska and the building is considered a fine example of the Prairie School style of architecture.
The tour then moves to Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 2207 Wirt Street, to take in its Late Gothic Revival architecture. A community reception will follow.
Online registration is encouraged as space is limited. Register at http://
As in past years, architects can receive learning units from the American Institute of Architects for attending this program.
This program is co-sponsored by: St. John African Methodist Episcopal Church, Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the American Institute of Architects–Omaha chapter.
We hope to see you there!
