The Bible and the Ancient Near East
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

For over 2,000 years, the Hebrew Bible has been considered sacred scripture by Jews and Christians. It also contains traditions held in high regard by Muslims. One of the most influential books ever written, it is also one of the most important artifacts of ancient Middle East. In what ways does the literature of the Bible look like other contemporary literature? Is there any evidence outside of the Bible for the events depicted in it? Did the biblical writers share a worldview with other cultures of their time? In this lecture, we will explore the Hebrew Bible and its world, and trace the new discoveries and revolutionary approaches to biblical scholarship that have emerged through the research of organizations like the Oriental Institute.

Presented by Joey Cross, a Ph.D. student in both Egyptology and Hebrew Bible studies in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago.

Discover the Modern Benefits of Ancient Self-Healing
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

When we get sick, our tendency is to go to the doctor first. Often, the medicines we are given cause side effects that may help the original symptoms, but make us sick somewhere else.

In this presentation we will learn these simple techniques to help heal ourselves by understanding the energy channels (meridians) in our bodies:

  • Simple stretches that open, strengthen, and heal internal organs
  • Accumulation and circulation of energy through integrating all 12 meridian channels
  • Release of stress through Tapping, an Acupressure Technique
  • Deep connection between body, mind, and spirit to experience how our bodies are designed to achieve greater health, happiness, and peace

Carole Liss has been practicing Body & Brain Yoga for over eleven years and is a master instructor and healer. As the owner of Body & Brain Yoga in Bloomingdale, she has personally overcome health challenges. Her mission is to help all members of her community find greater health, happiness, and peace in their lives.
