Telepathy-Thursday, October 24, at 6:30 PM-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: the supposed communication of thoughts or ideas by means other than the known senses. We all have the ability to communicate without words. 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/meditation, we will learn and practice communicating telepathically and why that is so important for healthy, authentic and truly intimate relationships. Join RoseMarie as she discusses telepathy and how it can help to strengthen and heal relationships. Please register online or in person. To register, or for more information, call 973-838-1321 or click on Adult Program Registration.

Intuition-Wednesday, November 13, at 6:45-7:45-Dr. Benanti of Center for Optimum Living returns with a program on intuition .Intuition, when broadly defined, includes common terms we use every day – inner voice, gut feeling, instinct, premonition, insight, 6th sense, felt-sense, and knowing in one’s heart – all point to the “inner knowing and authority,” which intuition can provide. As a kind of consciousness, intuition is like an inner-directed, mindful, and trustworthy response to whatever is going on. It’s quite different from the outer-direct, mindless, and programmed reactions we’re normally accustomed to… and which are not necessarily in the best interest of anyone involved.
