Christian Science Practitioner Ricardo Saldivar will present "Understanding Our Spiritual Nature – Finding You," a lecture on how faith and Christianity fit into contemporary life, Saturday and Sunday in the local area. The lecture in English is scheduled 4 p.m. Saturday at the Los Altos Youth Center, 1 N. San Antonio Road; in Spanish, 3 p.m. Sunday at the Mountain View Community Center, 201 South Rengstorff Ave.
Saldivar will address how to live more fulfilling lives with increased happiness, love, health and prosperity. A key part of his talk is learning how to recognize and see through the illusion of a limited, mortal life - to gain the ability to be aware of our true spiritual nature. He will present examples of physical and situational healings (including those of debt and employment) and explain how each person achieved the needed change.
Saldivar was raised in south Texas, the son of a Mexican national and a United States citizen. Growing up with the best of both dynamic heritages opened his thought to the possibility of expressing ideas in different ways. He learned to treasure all people and to understand that most individuals are looking for the same thing: a safe and prosperous future for themselves, their families and their communities.
Saldivar's desire to help others overshadowed all other career prospects and led him to his life's work as a spiritual healer. He lives with his wife in Marengo, Ill., and has practitioner offices in downtown Chicago and Rockford, Ill.
