    Dianne Kinsey will speak at the June 4 meeting after meditation. The title of her talk is "“Impressions of a Veterans’ Retreat with Claude AnShin Thomas”.

    The free meeting will start with a 30-minute meditation at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King Episcopal Church parish hall, 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, Santa Rosa Beach, a half mile north of Hwy. 98. The ECMS is ecumenical and does not follow any religion.

    Kinsey will describe a retreat for veterans and their families that she attended at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, N.Y., in April 2015. Claude AnShin Thomas, who led the retreat, is head of the Magnolia Zen Center in Mary Esther, FL, and works extensively with veterans.

    Born and raised in Rhode Island, Kinsey graduated from Roger Williams school of nursing in Bristol, R.I. She then earned bachelor and master of science degrees in psychiatric/mental health nursing from the University of Pennsylvania. Her doctorate is in education from Lehigh University, where her thesis was cited as the outstanding dissertation of the year.

    Kinsey taught psychiatric-mental health nursing at Cedar Crest College, a women's college in Allentown, PA, for 27 years, retiring as a full professor emeritus. She then taught for five years at the University of Rhode Island as a clinical professor of psychiatric nursing. She has authored a number of nursing and health-related publications.

    Kinsey has two sons and is the grandmother of a six-year-old boy. She retired to Destin in November 2014.

    The evening will conclude with a short guided meditation. Anyone who needs meditation instruction should arrive by 6:15 p.m. Contact nancyjames@embarqmail.com for information.
