An Evening with Psychic Medium Jeff Wands (adults and teens)

Wednesday, October 19th   at 6:00 p.m.

It is our pleasure to have Psychic Jeff back at our library. While watching TV at the tender age of 6, Jeffrey’s great grandmother, Mary, appeared in front of him and spoke. What made this incident unusual is that Mary had been dead for over 23 years. Jeffrey Wands has hosted his own radio show in New York for many years. Currently, his show, Psychic Sundays, can be heard on WALK 97.5 FM. Jeffrey has come to understand that everyone has some psychic ability within them. Jeffrey has several published books and e-Books which we have in our library collection. Parkland Library card required to register. 

Sahaja Meditation (adults and teens)

Saturday, October 22nd at 10:30 a.m.

Sahaja meditation is a simple, time-honored meditation that reduces stress and increases wellness. It brings better focus and helps people become more centered and better balanced. Anyone can do it, and no equipment is necessary as this is done sitting comfortably in a chair. Apurva Puranik, a Sahaja Yoga Meditation practitioner since 2005, will lead this session. Parkland Library Card required to register.
