A Weekend with Diana Butler Bass


Mark your calendars for a weekend on gratitude, led by Diana Butler Bass (Ph. D Duke University), award-winning author and internationally known public speaker and thought leader on issues of spirituality, religion, culture, and politics. 

She has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, PBS, CBS, and FOX, has been interviewed on numerous radio programs, including shows on NPR, CBC, and Sirius XM, and has work featured in numerous print and online newspapers and magazines including Time, USA Today, and the Los Angeles Times. From 1995-2000, she wrote a weekly column for the New York Times Syndicate.  She was a founding blogger for both Beliefnet and Huffington Post religion.  Her bylines include the Washington Post and Atlantic.com.  She has preached and taught in hundreds of church, college, and conference venues in North America and beyond.

Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Diana Butler Bass was raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, and loves Santa Barbara, California as her “soul” hometown.  She lives in Alexandria, Virginia, with her husband, Richard Bass, and their dog, Rowan. These days, she balances travel (which she loves) with her concerns for Virginia politics, a passion for environmental issues, supporting local farms, reading poetry, cooking, gardening, Washington Nationals baseball, and Duke basketball.

Event will be held at Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center. More details coming soon.
