Meditation Retreat for Collective Wellness
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

 

All are invited to join us at the Northborough Free Library on Saturday, October 19th from 10 AM – 2 PM for a Meditation Retreat for Collective Wellness with Academic Dr. Dhanjoo Ghista.

Dr. Ghista, who lives in Northborough, has been a University Professor throughout his life and has been offering a 7-part series on guided meditation at the Library for the past 3 years. He has been involved in institutional developments, in planning and modeling universities. In his work in academic settings, Professor Ghista has mentored several doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows, many of whom became professors, department heads and deans at universities. He has also done extensive research and published papers on the science of meditation and its effect on the mind and body.

During this retreat, we will explore the fundamental concepts of meditation in order to practice cosmic thinking and evolve spiritually, mentally and physically.

This 4-hour Retreat will bring together those from our community who are interested in how meditation benefits individually and collectively, and can contribute to a more spiritual, wellness and progressive community living.  With this in mind, the Retreat will comprise a 30-minute session on guided group meditation, after which all those attending will have the opportunity to discuss issues of interest to them, as well as some of the following topics:

  • How meditation inculcates humanitarian values, and promotes universalism
  • The benefits of meditation in your home, by family members meditating together
  • The benefits of meditation in schools, by having courses on meditation that students can take
  • The need for towns to have meditation and wellness centers, to cultivate a healthy living environment
  • Why work places should have weekly group meditation to develop a cohesive and harmonious environment
  • Spirituality beyond Religions (also known as neo-humanism)
  • How meditation connecting with the Divine Entity can develop human evolution
  • How Meditation can transform the mind and promote Higher Thinking
  • How we can practice meditation while working to end poverty and human suffering
  • Any other issues the participants would like to discuss.

The Retreat will begin with a 30-minute guided meditation, and it will end with a 15-minute non-guided group meditation. In-between meditating, we will have small group discussions devoted to the above topics.

PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE by going to www.northboroughlibrary.org and using our online registration button, or by calling Adult Services at 508-393-5025 x5. 

A good will offering of $5 will be gratefully accepted. All proceeds will go to the Northboro Food Pantry to help those in need in our community.

Please note the Meditation Retreat is intended for those aged 14 and up. No prior knowledge or practice of meditation is necessary and all are welcome to attend.

Meditation Practice for Health and Well-being: A 7-Part Series
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

 

We are pleased to present another 7-part series on guided meditation called Meditation Practice for Health and Well-being. The series will be presented by Academic Dr. Dhanjoo Ghista, a resident of Northborough and lifelong practitioner of meditation for improved health and wellbeing. Professor Ghista has taught meditation in a variety of settings, including senior centers, yoga centers and at the Northborough Free Library.

This will be a seven week course, wherein the group will meet once a week for 75 minutes plus time for disussion (optional). The first half-hour will be presentation by Prof. Ghista, the second 30 - 45 minutes will be collective or group meditation. Following the meditation practice, there will be an optional 15 - 30 minutes of informal discussion about our meditation experiences and shared interests leading to a better frame of mind, health and wellbeing. 

During these seven sessions, Professor Ghista will present information on the following topics:

1.  General Introduction and overview of the series.

2.  New science paradigm: Consciousness to cosmology, to life origin and evolution.

3.  Meditation: Ideating on consciousness, promoting psychosomatic health & wellbeing, liberation and enlightenment.

4.  Basic concepts of morality, as the foundation of spirituality.

5.  Fundamentals of meditation practice.

6.  Values inculcated from meditation, at the personal and societal level: In education, living and societal values.

7.  Promoting a neo-humanistic outlook and cosmic thinking, towards bringing about a more socially aware, human-centric and enlightened civilization.

Meditation is connecting our unit mind or individual mind with the Cosmic Mind, and thereby getting liberation from our embedded impressions in the mind, to attain a divine state of enlightenment.  We will practice meditation in each session.

An important result of meditation is spiritual development.  As part of this series, we will discuss how to incorporate this spiritual development in our personal lives and in our communities.

Finally, through this series we will aim to support (1) a neo-humanistic outlook, elevating ourselves beyond ‘narrow isms’ which have plagued our society, and (2) acquire cosmic thinking. Altogether, this series will help support our mutual goals of incorporating meditation into our daily lives, in leading to a more spiritual outlook, improved health and overall wellbeing.

The dates of the series are as follows: September 11th - October 30th.  

We are asking each participant to pay $25 for the series. All proceeds will go to the Northboro Food Pantry to help those in need in our community. Cash or checks payable to the Trustees of the Northborough Free Library will be gratefully accepted at the main checkout desk prior to September 11th. 

Advance registration for the entire series is required. You can also call Adult Services at 508-393-5025 x5 and the library staff will register you on the phone.

For more information, please call 508-393-5025 x5.

Wellness film discussion series (Kathleen Howland)
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Community Film and Discussion Series: Sleepless in America

Sleepless in America explores sleep loss in our modern society and reveals the compounding consequences of having a population that does not get enough sleep.  Produced by a partnership of National Geographic and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the program explores sleep science and describes the serious health consequences of insufficient sleep. With drowsy drivers who are every bit as dangerous as drunks to the associated long-term health problems like diabetes and dementia, the long-term cost of sleep loss is excessive. The documentary is an argument against the demands of a 24/7 society and the allure of the many devices in our living rooms or, in worse cases, at our bedsides.

"Sleepless in America" aims to reach viewers and inspire them to take action. Cutting-edge research examples are used to provide scientific evidence against sleep loss. Personal accounts, such as the horrific story of the husband who lost half his family when a hospital worker drove home drowsy after an extra-long shift, are an emotional appeal for change.

The barrage of warnings from researchers and physicians and the tragic and cautionary accounts combine to frame our society’s sleeplessness as a disease that needs immediate attention. 

Join Katherine Howland, Northborough parent, music/speech therapist, and professor of neuroscience at Berklee College of Music, in the viewing and discussion of this film.

Wellness film discussion series - Will to Survive (Kathleen Howland)
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

A WILL TO SURVIVE was a rock opera written in reaction to the loss of a teenager named William Robinson. After Will took his own life, a music therapist named Tom Sweitzer set out to write the rock opera to help encourage teens to reach out for help and support in difficult times. In an astounding act of courage, Will's own mother Ann-Charlotte Robinson agreed to help advise Tom in the writing process and eventually star in the stage production. Expanding on the award-winning short A MOTHER'S WILL, A WILL TO SURVIVE: THE MOVIE is a documentary that follows the cast as they prepare to take the stage for a sold-out performance at the legendary Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The film also interviews the cast and studies the ripple effects of positive change that are set in motion by the rock opera, both in the lives of the cast and in the lives of the audience members.

Join Kathleen Howland, Northborough parent, music/speech therapist, and neuroscience professor at Berklee College of Musci, for the viewing and discussion of this film.

FALL MUSIC SERIES: Too Human
2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

 

We are pleased to present Roger Bruno and Ellen Schwartz of Too Human for a return engagement in November as part of our Fall Music Series! Starting out as professional songwriters in Los Angeles, their songs have been covered by a broad spectrum of recording artists, including Cher, Pat Benatar, Teddy Pendergrass, Martha Davis (of the Motels), Anne Murray, Nancy Wilson and Ramsey Lewis. They left the corporate world and moved back east and now live in Western Mass. Ask them what kind of music they play, Roger and Ellen will answer: "Good music with a lot of heart." Along with their bassist, this great jazz trio covers standards from the American Songbook, but with a fresh interpretation that brings new life to these classic songs. With vocals, guitar, percussion, and on occasion, upright bass, they have a jazzy, bluesy feel.

More about Too Human is available on their website at www.toohumanonline.com.

The Music Series is funded in part by the Friends of the Northborough Library. No registration is required. Refreshments will be served. Join us!

Wellness film discussion series - Happy (Kathleen Howland)
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

What makes people happy?

It's the question at the heart of this documentary film simply — but appropriately — titled “Happy.”

The film was originally inspired by a 2005 New York Times article “A New Measure of Well-Being from a Happy Little Kingdom” by Andrew C. Revkin in which the United States was ranked 23rd on a list of the happiest nations in the world. With much poorer countries like Iceland and Puerto Rico easily surpassing the U.S., "Happy" makes a compelling argument that once basic necessities like food and shelter are provided for, economic factors have relatively little to do with overall satisfaction in life.

Using a balance of scientific research and fascinating human stories, the filmmakers explore some of the non-material roots of happiness, and in the process, show that while there isn’t a formula for it, everyone can become happier.

The film takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. It explores human happiness through interviews with people from all walks of life in 14 different countries, weaving in the newest findings of positive psychology.  “Happy” is brimming with positive energy and a sense of joy regarding the shared human experience.

Join Kathleen Howland, Northborough parent, music/speech therapist, and neuroscience professor at Berklee College of Music, in the viewing and discussion of  "Happy".
