Certified Reiki Master Dorothy Mandrakos provides an introduction to Reiki, a Japanese healing modality that works with the body’s energy system to balance itself towards better health. Our body has lines of energy, called meridians, that deliver CHI (life force energy) to every cell in the body. When the flow of energy along these lines is moving smoothly, we are in a state of good health. Reiki can help to facilitate the healing process, decrease pain and increase a sense of well-being. Dorothy explains the history and principles of Reiki, teaches us self healing techniques and will conduct a live demonstration on a member of the audience. Registration required. Open to all.

 

Great books Discussion Group: A Letter Concerning Toleration

John Locke

Monday, July 22, 2019 · 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm · Auditorium

Register using code HMA302
"A Letter Concerning Toleration" by John Locke (1632 - 1704).  
Locke was an English physician and philosopher. In 1685, he wrote, in Latin, a letter to his friend Philip von Limborch. A few years later it was translated into English, and published as A Letter Concerning Toleration. It expresses Locke’s thoughts on mutual toleration among Christians in their different professions of religious belief, and can be read as a response to the violent sectarian wars of the 17th century. The founding fathers incorporated many of Locke’s ideas into the U.S. constitution, in particular those concerning separation of church and state.
