The Practice of Loving Kindness Meditation

Enjoy this free meditation session with Resident Teacher Gen 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.

Participants will learn methods to bring out positive and peaceful qualities of the mind through the practice of meditation.

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

Note date changed from June 21!
You’re invited to join our discussion of Three Junes by Julia Glass.

A luminous first novel, set in Greece, Scotland, Greenwich Village, and Long Island, that traces the members of a Scottish family as they confront the joys and longings, fulfillments and betrayals of love in all its guises.

In June of 1989 Paul McLeod, a newspaper publisher and recent widower, travels to Greece, where he falls for a young American artist and reflects on the complicated truth about his marriage.

Six years later, again in June, Paul's death draws his three grown sons and their families back to their ancestral home. Fenno, the eldest, a wry, introspective gay man, narrates the events of this unforeseen reunion. Far from his straitlaced expatriate life as a bookseller in Greenwich Village, Fenno is stunned by a series of revelations that threaten his carefully crafted defenses.

Four years farther on, in yet another June, a chance meeting on the Long Island shore brings Fenno together with Fern Olitsky, the artist who once captivated his father. Now pregnant, Fern must weigh her guilt about the past against her wishes for the future and decide what family means to her.

In prose rich with compassion and wit, Three Junes paints a haunting portrait of love's redemptive powers.

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.
