Public Speaking for Personal Power
Tuesdays, 7-8:00 p.m.
Do you have a passion for personal growth? If so, join us weekly at the Philosophical Library! Each person will have an opportunity to speak in front of an audience about their chosen topic. Develop skills and grow at your own pace. Read a poem, memorize a speech, share your philosophy of life, express your passion! Personal growth compounds and accelerates if we remain active in pursuing our goals. Each time we take an action that builds our character, we become stronger as a person. Public speaking is one of the most effective ways to overcome fear and fulfill your potential. Practice and perfect your skills here at the library.

Messages from Loved Ones in Spirit with Hollister Rand
February 28, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
Is it possible to continue relationships beyond death? Do loved ones see what's going on in my life? Can they help me with the challenges facing me right now? Get answers to these questions from the spirits themselves! Experience the peace of knowing that those you love remain close to you. During the event, a number of audience members will receive messages from loved ones living in the spirit world. There will be time afterwards for some meetand-greets and book-signings.

Library donation appreciated. For more info on Hollister, visit www.HollisterRand.com

Introduction to Bach Flower Remedies
February 19, 5-6:30 p.m.
Dr. Edward Bach developed a wonderful energy healing system back in the 1930s. The Bach Flower Remedies are a beautiful, subtle way of healing and balancing our emotions through the energy vibration of each of the wild flowers that make up the system. Today, we are very aware that we are energy beings and through energy we can heal ourselves and heal others. The Bach Flower Essences are one of the many ways available today to balance our emotions and vibrate at our highest potential of Love.
