The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group.  

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it. Join us to learn how to meditate!

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.

In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, instructor Dick Calef will give an overview of the Indian school which operated in Carlisle, PA, from 1879 until it was closed in 1918. The purpose of the school was to remove young Indians from the reservation and immerse them in white culture to promote eventual assimilation of Indians into white society.   This aspect of Indian history is not generally taught in U.S. schools nor is widely known by the public.   However, recent pleas for the return of the bodies of the Indian children buried there, has put the school back in the news.

Dick Calef is an instructor at the Lifelong Learning Institute at Immaculata University in Malvern, PA, and has been active in lifelong learning for over a decade.

This free talk is geared toward adults and teens; registration is appreciated.
