The Beauty of Nature-Fridays at 1:00pm, beginning October 15-Albert Schweitzer said: “Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.” Using this famous quote as our foundation, each week will include a brief introduction to an aspect of nature such as the animals, plants/trees, and ocean Life, together with a guided meditation sending peace and compassion to them. In doing so, we, too, receive peace and compassion.

Better Together Butler-What is Telepathy?-Wednesday. November 3, at 6:30pm-What is telepathy and how can we utilize it to strengthen and heal relationships? Did you ever pick up the phone to call someone and they are calling you at the same time? Did you ever think of someone only to run into them the next day? Or maybe someone you are with says something that you were just thinking about. These are all forms of telepathy. We all have the ability to communicate without words through thoughts and feelings and knowing. Some of us are naturally more telepathic than others, but all of us can learn to utilize thought communication in a more effective and profound way. In this class we will learn and practice communicating telepathically and why that is so important for healthy, authentic, and truly intimate relationships. The program is presented by Bergen County author RoseMarie Cappiello, Intuitive/Medium/Healer. Click here to register.
