misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Constant Happiness Insight Session   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact:    (609) 448-1474   
   

If you were asked would you rather be happy or sad, what would you say? Probably something like "What a ridiculous question to ask!" We all want to be happy, but where do we find it? Is my happiness under my control, or am I at the mercy of what life throws at me? Understand the role you play in your own happiness and claim your right to be happy. Make happiness a habit!

Presented by library staff member, Leena Iyengar, a 9 year practitioner of Rajyoga meditation. Rajyoga meditation is taught by Brahmakumaris, a world spiritual organization. Leena delivers youth and adult classes on values and facilitates workshops on different topics such as inner peace, happiness and love.

Author and baseball historian John G. Zinn will discuss New Jersey Base Ball during the Civil War Era: 1855-1870.  Legend has it that base ball (two words in the 19th century) was invented in 1839 in Cooperstown, NY by Abner Doubleday. In fact, the direct ancestor of today’s game started in New York City and New Jersey played an important role in the early days of our “national pastime.”  Zinn will discuss how New Jersey might justly be called base ball’s “incubator,” how the game developed and spread throughout the state and the major differences between the game then and now.
