UFO Program Follow-up

UFO Thankyou 3.jpg

Greetings EDGE Readers!

Thanks to all of you who attended our UFO program Wednesday night; we had a great group. Thanks, especially, to those of you who shared your personal experiences. If you didn't have a chance to do it after the program, you can submit your personal experience in written form on both the MUFON and the Cleveland Ufology Project websites. I spoke to Tom after the program and he suggests submitting it to the MUFON website, which will get it into the national database and the Cleveland Ufology Project will also have access to it.

I still have a few of the bibliographies, I put together, in the plastic holders on the end cap near the 100s dewey area. If you don't know where that is, ask at one of the public service desks and a staff member will show you.

Click here to accessTom's bibliography on the Cleveland Ufology website.

If you didn't turn in your evaluation sheet, I'm still interested in your input. If you took the form home with you, fill it out and turn it in the next time you're in the library. If you didn't take a copy with you you can email me at Ilona.Miklos@westlakelibrary.org with anything you would like to say about the program: what you liked about it, how it could be improved...

We're also interested in your suggestions for future programming on any topic. I promise to get them to the right people.

In addition, if you're interested in being notified of future programs by email, you can submit your email address to be added to our list.

UFOs in Trumbull County, Crop Circles in Chilicothe, Ohio, and more--Unexplained

ohio crop circles 2.jpg

Our speaker for this Wednesday's UFO program (7-8:30 in the Porter Room) has told me that he intends to focus in particular on three unexplained Ohio UFO cases:

A historical account of UFO sitings in Trumbull County involving 911 calls and communications between law enforcement officers. The original tapes of these conversations are mysteriously missing and it took two years for the backups to turn up.

An event involving a Crop Circle in Chilicothe, Ohio at the Hopewell Indian Mounds. This one is from last September.

And a third focus case will involve UFO sitings in the area of the old Nike missile base in Cleveland.

Don't forget to bring your own experience, you will have a chance to talk with Tom and the group about it and you can also turn it in to them in written form to be added to their database.

Register if you haven't already, in person at any public service desk, by calling 440-250-5460, or online by clicking HERE.

Check out the display of books on UFOs, Alien Life, Time Travel, etc. at the front of the library--and I'll see you there.

EDGE readers--want to JOIN MUFON or the Cleveland Ufology Project? A number of people have asked about this since our program last year.

Here's the scoop--you CAN join the Cleveland Ufology Project; MUFON doesn't have members, but you can SUBSCRIBE to their newsletter.

Cost to join the Cleveland Ufology Project is $25, which helps to cover the cost of renting the room they meet in.  Meetings are at 7:30 pm on the 3rd Saturday of every month at Tri-Cs western campus. Tom will be bringing flyers about this to our program on July 31.  You can also go to the organization's website at http://www.clevelandufo.com.

Greetings EDGE Readers!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS--Wednesday evening July 31, Thomas Wertman of  MUFON Ohio and the Cleveland Ufology Project returns to present part two of our series on UFO activity. 

Last year, Tom gave us an introduction to UFO activity in Ohio—this year, he'll concentrate on UNEXPLAINED SITINGS and ENCOUNTERS—the meaty stuff.   I know this is what you guys are really interested in.  And he's promised to allot ample time at the end of the program for questions and answers and for you to SHARE YOUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCES.

It promises to be an EXCITING evening.

More on Our May 1 program on Energy Therapy/Chakra Cleansing with Linda Street

LindaStreetBlog.jpg

Greetings Edge Readers...

I've just talked with our speaker, Reiki Master, Linda Street, and she tells me she intends to  include several experiential elements in her program on May 1.  That means some of you will have a chance to participate in an energy therapy exercise.  No one will be forced to do anything they don't want to, so if you're shy and don't want to be the center of attention, you're safe. We'll just have those who are interested in being a test subject, throw their names into a bag as they enter, and then we'll draw from that collection when the time comes.

I'm really psyched about this program.  Please remember to register; you can call 440-250-5460, come to any public service desk in the library or register on line using our event calendar.  I'll make it easy for you, click HERE and it will take you directly to the sign-up sheet.

Part II of Our Series on Energy Healing with Linda Street

EnergyTherapyBlog.jpg

Heads Up! Save the Date...You spoke, I listened. Welcome back Edge readers.

After our program last October on Reike with Linda Street, I collected the evaluation sheets you filled out and so many of you wanted more information on energy healing, that I've asked Linda back for a second presentation in which she can go into more depth. In response to a couple of you who requested something specifically on Chakra Cleansing, she will be devoting part of the program to that topic.

We look forward to seeing you there, May 1, 2013-7:00 to 8:30 pm. We'll open the doors at 6:30, so you can arrive a little early to meet and greet each other and get settled. We'll have refreshments and literature for you to pick up.

Registration is required for this program; ask at any public service desk, use our online event calendar, or call 440-250-5460.

That's all for now...I'll be back later with more info.

Until then, remember to Keep Your Eye on The Edge.

Now that the holidays are behind us and we’re staring down a long cold road, I thought I’d begin making some suggestions for reading on long wintry nights.


Initial installment: some books dealing with the existence of Evil in the world.

 

 

Reiki Program Follow-Up

Reikiforblog.jpg

Greetings Edge Readers:


I want to follow-up on our Reiki program that took place on Oct. 25. Thanks to everyone who attended and to our speaker, Linda Street, who did a wonderful job.


I've been going through the evaluations and taking note of your comments and suggestions for future programs. Those of you who indicated you're interested in seeing more on Reiki, with more in-depth coverage of the topic, will be happy to know that we will be having Linda back next year for a Reiki 102. We look forward to that. If you suggested programming on other topics, rest assured I have forwarded your suggestions to the appropriate staff members.

Linda Street: Healing From the Heart

Linda's portrait sylized.png

Some of you have been asking me of late, "What is Reiki?" I'll admit my own understanding of it has been very vague. If you're like me, you may have thought, "Isn't it some kind of massage or alternative therapy?"

And if you thought this, the truth is you'd be -- well, let’s say you'd be in the right neighborhood.

Based on some admittedly quick research, Reiki is a methodology that heals by redirecting the energy force that animates us, and sometimes by removing blockages in the flow of that energy. In general, sickness: physical, psychological, spiritual, is attributed to something being wrong with this energy.

So, when you read about Reiki, you come across a lot about the Oriental concepts of Qi and the Chakras, and about the more universal idea of an Energy Body.

You also realize that there's a whole other area of Reiki that appeals to higher forces: to diety, to angels, and to other kinds of "higher consciousness" for help in correcting problems with the flow of this energy. Aligning your energy with the energy that pervades the universe seems to be the key to overall health and well being.

But don't take it from me; this is just me rambling on.

Join us Thursday, October 25, when you can hear it from the mouth of an Expert. Linda Street, Kudalini Reiki Master and Teacher comes to us with a background in Usui Reiki, Tibetan System Natural Healing, Integrated Energy Therapy, Diamond Light Therapy and more.

She’ll speak to us about the Heart Center, guide us in the creation of Aphorisms, and lead us in a brief Meditation. There will be plenty of time for Questions and AnswersYou’ll have an opportunity to Enter to Win a chance to participate in a demonstration of Linda's healing process during the course of the program. Refreshments will be served.

Register in person, online using our event calendar, or call 440-250-5460.
