Can we break the chains of materialism?

Explore how prayer brings freedom.





John Tyler, CSB

What if the world we see and feel around us were an illusion? We live in a world where advertising creates desire for material things. But materialism goes deeper. Can we free ourselves not only from the hypnotism of advertising, but from all dependence on a matter world? International speaker John Tyler says, “We can free ourselves from these influences! I’ve found in my own life that, through prayer and active love, we can radically change our lives.”

Tyler, a long-time activist for civil rights, has degrees from both Princeton University and the Institut d’Etudes Politiques, Paris, and taught political science at Princeton and the University of Pittsburgh, before becoming a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing. He now travels internationally speaking about the power of prayer to bring peace, health, and healing in people’s lives.
