Meditation in Motion -- Introduction to Silat
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit.  Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology.  Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. 
 
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications.  "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo.  (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+).  Second Mondays of each month.

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this montly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions!

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration helpful, but not necessary.

Morbidity & Mortality: Eight Must Reads for Our Time

Abby Mendelson will be presenting Morbidity & Mortality: Eight "Must Reads" for our Times. Death. It’s our greatest mystery, our greatest fear for ourselves and our loved ones. But how to cope—before and after? How to see, or supervise, the end of life’s journey with sense and dignity? Most, if not all, of us are painfully ill-equipped even to frame the arguments, much less deal with the day-to-day. To clarify our thinking, and ameliorate our struggles, we’ll read all or part of eight first-rate writers who have dealt with death. Register below for the series (10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8 and 11/15).

  • How to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots
  • How to maintain the proper following distance behind another car
  • The safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, antilock brakes and new technology found in cars today
  • Ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities
  • The effects of medications on driving
  • The importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking and using a cellphone

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

Morbidity & Mortality: Eight Must Reads for Our Time

Abby Mendelson will be presenting Morbidity & Mortality: Eight "Must Reads" for our Times. Death. It’s our greatest mystery, our greatest fear for ourselves and our loved ones. But how to cope—before and after? How to see, or supervise, the end of life’s journey with sense and dignity? Most, if not all, of us are painfully ill-equipped even to frame the arguments, much less deal with the day-to-day. To clarify our thinking, and ameliorate our struggles, we’ll read all or part of eight first-rate writers who have dealt with death. Register below for the series (10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8 and 11/15).

Beginners Irish Gaelic

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
