Ms. Jenniffer Weigel, Local Broadcast Journalist and Writer, will speak on the topic, Conversations with Weigel: A Two-Part Series Exploring Spiritual Enlightenment. Ms. Weigel will be discussing how to incorporate spirituality into our already very busy lives. Part 1 will focus on her interviews with bestselling authors and many healers and spiritual leaders. She will list some of the most useful advice and wisdom and share how this information has changed her perspective on putting her trust in what she calls “the universe” or “the Source.” Part 2 will discuss ways to build our intuition and ability to hear that inner voice.
Ms. Weigel started in radio and eventually moved to television where she was a reporter and news anchor, winning an Emmy for her on-camera reporting for CBS. After her father (broadcaster and journalist Tim Weigel) died of a brain tumor in 2001, she decided life was too short to shiver on an overpass reporting, “It’s cold outside. Back to you.” She started her own production company and hosted the Emmy-nominated food and wine show “Taste” for NBC in Chicago. She’s written three books: Stay Tuned, I’m Spiritual, Dammit!, and This Isn’t the Life I Ordered. Her fourth book is being released next March. She now hosts “Conversations with Weigel: A Series Exploring Spiritual Enlightenment” at the Wilmette Theatre once a month, interviewing authors and gurus from across the country. Her podcast “I’m Spiritual, Dammit!” is one of the most popular podcasts for WGN-plus. She also hosts “Friday Funnies” at the Wilmette Theatre, which features local comedians on the first Friday of every month.
