The Practice of Loving Kindness Meditation

This is the second session of a two part free meditation series with Resident Teacher Kelsang Khyenwang  of the Odiyana Kadampa Buddhist Center in East Hartford. 

Compassion is a powerful mind that wishes to free others from suffering and is the real essence of who we are.  Developing and maintaining a warm heart and a feeling of being close to others is the actual foundation for compassion.

Learn methods to bring out the positive and peaceful qualities of our mind through the practice of meditation.

The workshops reinforce techniques learned at an introductory meditation program presented earlier, though anyone will benefit from attending this workshop. Registration is strongly recommended. You may register for one or both of the workshops. Please stop in or call the library to register for this program, generously sponsored by the Friends of the Thomaston Public Library.

Book Discussion Group


You’re invited to join
our discussion of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, and medicine; of scientific discovery and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew.

Copies of the novel will be available at the library to borrow three weeks prior to the program date. Please call or visit the library to reserve your copy. The book discussion group meets the second Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in the library.
