Reducing Stress Through Meditation
Jamestown Philomenian Library, Wednesday, October 26 at 7:30pm
Meditation and the Brain; Our Link to Being and the Universe
How can meditation help us unravel the mysteries of life. How can it grant us insight into why we are here and what is our true purpose. How can it promote human unity and the realization that we are one, not only with all humanity, but with everything in Creation. This program will provide us with the latest research on meditation's affect on our brain, our being, and the cosmic connection it has to our relationship with the Universe. Referencing the most recent scientific research, Dr. Post will expand our understanding of the meditative process, its rich spiritual history, and the connective link it provides to the Cosmos. There will be an opportunity to learn and participate in an introductory meditation practice and Q&A following the presentation. Dr. Post is a chiropractic physician, a contributing author to the landmark book "Meditation as Medication for the Soul" (by best-selling author Rajinder Singh). He is an integrative medicine health care consultant, and a practitioner of meditation since 1976. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Orhan’s Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian
When Orhan's brilliant and eccentric grandfather, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But his grandfather has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, Seda, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Over time, Orhan begins to unearth the story that eighty-seven-year-old Seda so closely guards--a story that, if it's told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which Orhan's family is built and could unravel Orhan's own future. Like Anthony Marra's "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, " TEa Obreht's "The Tiger's Wife, "and Adam Johnson's "The Orphan Master's Son, " Ohanesian's moving debut showcases formidable storytelling talents and powerful truths.
