   6:15 PM  -  8:00 PM Readings in Alternative Everything - Facilitated by Richard Kajuth, Eds, DD  
   

~~Are you interested in the various mysteries of the mind investigated by parapsychology, or the fields of alternative and holistic healing? Would you like to explore theories about the nature of consciousness, mind/body/spirit connections and your health, or intriguing archeological findings that don’t fit existing historical paradigms?


If you are enticed by such areas of inquiry, you may be interested in joining our newest reader’s group featuring Readings in Alternative Everything . . . Authors such as Deepak Chopra, Greg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin, and many more are representative names of the types of works the group will consider in the months to come. If titles like the Lost Knowledge of the Ancients, Forbidden Archeology, Mind Over Medicine, and The Afterlife Experiments exhibit language that make you want to peek between the covers, you may want to join in the company of others of like mind!


The group will entertain such engaging themes and follow a protocol for discussion that will stir and elicit conversation about content that each reader gleans from their reading. Since this is a book “study” group, discussion will focus on the central themes of each book for at least two to three monthly sessions, the maximum time allowable for books to be checked out of the system. The goal of the group is not to see how many books we can get through, but to see how much of each book gets through to us!

The book study is being facilitated by Richard Kajuth, EdS, DD. Richard is a former educational consultant, now retired from the Ohio Department of Education. As an avocation, he has been a life long student of various esoteric subjects, is a certified yoga teacher, has taught meditation for health and well being sessions, and is the editor of two current books on Eastern philosophy and religion.

   1:00 PM  -  2:00 PM Hot Topics: What in the World is a Will Substitute?  
   

Your will distributes your assets when you die--unless your assets have beneficiary designations. Assets like IRAs, 401(k)s, and annuities typically name beneficiaries who receive the asset at your death regardless of your will. And of course property held jointly passes to the joint owners. Assets like that are called Will Substitutes and aren't controlled by your will. There is probably no          estate-planning subject as important as this one. We'll talk about the law governing beneficiary designations and present some ideas for how to handle yours. Please register on line or by calling the library at 412-486-0211.

   6:15 PM  -  8:00 PM Readings in Alternative Everything - Facilitated by Richard Kajuth, Eds, DD  
   

~~Are you interested in the various mysteries of the mind investigated by parapsychology, or the fields of alternative and holistic healing? Would you like to explore theories about the nature of consciousness, mind/body/spirit connections and your health, or intriguing archeological findings that don’t fit existing historical paradigms?


If you are enticed by such areas of inquiry, you may be interested in joining our newest reader’s group featuring Readings in Alternative Everything . . . Authors such as Deepak Chopra, Greg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin, and many more are representative names of the types of works the group will consider in the months to come. If titles like the Lost Knowledge of the Ancients, Forbidden Archeology, Mind Over Medicine, and The Afterlife Experiments exhibit language that make you want to peek between the covers, you may want to join in the company of others of like mind!


The group will entertain such engaging themes and follow a protocol for discussion that will stir and elicit conversation about content that each reader gleans from their reading. Since this is a book “study” group, discussion will focus on the central themes of each book for at least two to three monthly sessions, the maximum time allowable for books to be checked out of the system. The goal of the group is not to see how many books we can get through, but to see how much of each book gets through to us!

The book study is being facilitated by Richard Kajuth, EdS, DD. Richard is a former educational consultant, now retired from the Ohio Department of Education. As an avocation, he has been a life long student of various esoteric subjects, is a certified yoga teacher, has taught meditation for health and well being sessions, and is the editor of two current books on Eastern philosophy and religion.

   6:15 PM  -  8:00 PM Readings in Alternative Everything - Facilitated by Richard Kajuth, Eds, DD  
   

~~Are you interested in the various mysteries of the mind investigated by parapsychology, or the fields of alternative and holistic healing? Would you like to explore theories about the nature of consciousness, mind/body/spirit connections and your health, or intriguing archeological findings that don’t fit existing historical paradigms?


If you are enticed by such areas of inquiry, you may be interested in joining our newest reader’s group featuring Readings in Alternative Everything . . . Authors such as Deepak Chopra, Greg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin, and many more are representative names of the types of works the group will consider in the months to come. If titles like the Lost Knowledge of the Ancients, Forbidden Archeology, Mind Over Medicine, and The Afterlife Experiments exhibit language that make you want to peek between the covers, you may want to join in the company of others of like mind!


The group will entertain such engaging themes and follow a protocol for discussion that will stir and elicit conversation about content that each reader gleans from their reading. Since this is a book “study” group, discussion will focus on the central themes of each book for at least two to three monthly sessions, the maximum time allowable for books to be checked out of the system. The goal of the group is not to see how many books we can get through, but to see how much of each book gets through to us!

The book study is being facilitated by Richard Kajuth, EdS, DD. Richard is a former educational consultant, now retired from the Ohio Department of Education. As an avocation, he has been a life long student of various esoteric subjects, is a certified yoga teacher, has taught meditation for health and well being sessions, and is the editor of two current books on Eastern philosophy and religion.

   6:15 PM  -  8:00 PM Readings in Alternative Everything - Facilitated by Richard Kajuth, Eds, DD  
   

THIS SESSION HAS BEEN CHANGED TO MEET WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15 IN THE QUIET STUDY 6:15 PM to 8:00 PM

Are you interested in the various mysteries of the mind investigated by parapsychology, or the fields of alternative and holistic healing? Would you like to explore theories about the nature of consciousness, mind/body/spirit connections and your health, or intriguing archeological findings that don’t fit existing historical paradigms?


If you are enticed by such areas of inquiry, you may be interested in joining our newest reader’s group featuring Readings in Alternative Everything . . . Authors such as Deepak Chopra, Greg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin, and many more are representative names of the types of works the group will consider in the months to come. If titles like the Lost Knowledge of the Ancients, Forbidden Archeology, Mind Over Medicine, and The Afterlife Experiments exhibit language that make you want to peek between the covers, you may want to join in the company of others of like mind!


The group will entertain such engaging themes and follow a protocol for discussion that will stir and elicit conversation about content that each reader gleans from their reading. Since this is a book “study” group, discussion will focus on the central themes of each book for at least two to three monthly sessions, the maximum time allowable for books to be checked out of the system. The goal of the group is not to see how many books we can get through, but to see how much of each book gets through to us!

The book study is being facilitated by Richard Kajuth, EdS, DD. Richard is a former educational consultant, now retired from the Ohio Department of Education. As an avocation, he has been a life long student of various esoteric subjects, is a certified yoga teacher, has taught meditation for health and well being sessions, and is the editor of two current books on Eastern philosophy and religion.

   6:15 PM  -  8:00 PM Readings in Alternative Everything - Facilitated by Richard Kajuth, Eds, DD  
   

~~Are you interested in the various mysteries of the mind investigated by parapsychology, or the fields of alternative and holistic healing? Would you like to explore theories about the nature of consciousness, mind/body/spirit connections and your health, or intriguing archeological findings that don’t fit existing historical paradigms?


If you are enticed by such areas of inquiry, you may be interested in joining our newest reader’s group featuring Readings in Alternative Everything . . . Authors such as Deepak Chopra, Greg Braden, Eckhart Tolle, Graham Hancock, Zecharia Sitchin, and many more are representative names of the types of works the group will consider in the months to come. If titles like the Lost Knowledge of the Ancients, Forbidden Archeology, Mind Over Medicine, and The Afterlife Experiments exhibit language that make you want to peek between the covers, you may want to join in the company of others of like mind!


The group will entertain such engaging themes and follow a protocol for discussion that will stir and elicit conversation about content that each reader gleans from their reading. Since this is a book “study” group, discussion will focus on the central themes of each book for at least two to three monthly sessions, the maximum time allowable for books to be checked out of the system. The goal of the group is not to see how many books we can get through, but to see how much of each book gets through to us!

The book study is being facilitated by Richard Kajuth, EdS, DD. Richard is a former educational consultant, now retired from the Ohio Department of Education. As an avocation, he has been a life long student of various esoteric subjects, is a certified yoga teacher, has taught meditation for health and well being sessions, and is the editor of two current books on Eastern philosophy and religion.
