Exercise Your Mind Adult Summer Reading 2016

The library has planned a lot of opportunities for you to "exercise your mind (body and spirit) this summer at the library. Registration for the adult summer reading program begins during our kick-off event on  Sunday, June 26th and continues throughout the summer, ending with a celebration on August 25th.  Adults can register online on our website at www.mtlebanonlibrary.org or come in the library and let us assist you. All registrants will receive a summer reading registration bag and NuGo gluten-free nutrition bar. If you sign-up from home stop by the library to pick up your registration bag. 

You can fill out one slip for every book that you read or listen to this summer. The library will have themed numbered prize baskets with corresponding bags for you to drop your slips into for a chance to win at the end of the summer. All winners will be selected from random drawings of each prize bag. The more you read the better the odds! In addition to the end of summer drawings the library will randomly select from all registered participants several weekly incentive winners.

Throughout the summer the library has planned cultural events and a few reading-centered activities to help you exercise your mind, as well as a great many wellness-based programs to help you exercise your body and spirit. 

At the end of the summer we will celebrate together with a special summer reading get-together that will extend into the courtyard to appreciate the last of our summer courtyard concerts.

The Finding Presence Series is a three-part collaborative programming event with the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, The Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh and the Artsmiths of Pittsburgh. We will explore through three different mediums; sound, body movement and art, pathways to fuller awareness of the present moment. Each event will be held at the host site. Please call the Mt. Lebanon Public Library for additional information (412) 531-1912.

Sound Journey with Gongs & Himalayan Bowls

Enter a cosmic journey as you bathe in waves of sound from multiple gongs, bells and metal singing bowls. The deep complex harmonics of multiple gongs quickly silence the mind and guide the brain into a spontaneous state of deep meditation. The rhythmic sound oscillations of therapy-grade Himalayan bowls placed on or around the body penetrate into the tissues and are often experienced as a full body sound massage that allows us to let go of stress, worries, anxieties, doubt, fears and feelings that have a negative effect on our health and life. Listeners often describe out of body experiences, seeing beautiful colors behind their eyes, past life impressions, expanded awareness and higher states of consciousness. We will begin to prepare the body to enter a state of healing and receptivity through the sacred practices of guided meditation, breathwork, or deep listening. We will then relax deeply to the sounds of multiple gongs for a vibrational experience like no other!!! 

About Crown of Eternity
Crown Of Eternity spend their lives serving people through vibration, sound and music as well as with relaxation and energy movement techniques. Through their workshops, classes, therapy sessions and concerts, they have helped thousands of people connect to their life energy, deepen relaxation and promote self healing. Over the past 20+ years Mike Tamburo has become well known as a multi-instrumentalist and polymath, performing and recording ecstatic and transcendental music as well as folk, ambient and sometimes unclassifiable sounds. He is also an artist and a film maker. As he worked deeper and deeper with the sound current and his own self healing practices, he discovered the healing power of the gong and other tuned metal instruments (singing bowls, bells, sound plates) as well as the healing power of mantra and toning. In 2008 he met Gallina Tamburo, who was on her own journey of healing. Their shared love of ecstatic music, kundalini yoga, the gong, sound therapy, and sacred chanting set the foundation of their relationship, marriage, and eventual musical collaboration. They currently live in Pittsburgh, PA where they both teach sound therapy and kundalini yoga and run their own yoga and vibrational healing center (also called Crown of Eternity). In addition to completing their Kundalini Teacher Training at the mother ashram in Espanola, NM and Yoga For Youth Training with Krishna Kaur they have studied with Gongmasters Don Conreaux and Sotantar and trained in the Peter Hess Method of Sound Massage using Himalayan Singing Bowls for healing. 

The duo have released 3 CDs together and also run the Sounds Eternal record label that has released many of Mike’s solo recordings. Together, Mike and Gallina have developed their own style of relating to the therapeutic vibrations of the Gong, incorporating ancient wisdom and infusing it with creativity, playfulness and joy. Crown of Eternity offer a unique sonic experience that is as much grounded in tradition as it is groundbreaking. There is an expansive, blissful, ethereal and epic quality to Crown of Eternity’s music. They are truly immersed in vibration. They toured in 2015 in support of their Gong CD: “Earth in Space” and Mantra CDs: “Vibrate the Cosmos” and “The Cosmos Shall Clear The Path” which were released in 2014 and Mike’s newest hammered dulcimer release “The Way To Be Free’ released in 2015. Whether they are bathing you in the complex harmonics of multiple gongs, ecstatic instrumentals or their cosmic renditions of sacred Kundalini Yoga mantras, Crown of Eternity delivers a heart centered experience that you will deeply appreciate and remember.

Presenter Dr. Cleon Cornes is a retired psychiatrist who enjoys teaching courses (mostly about eccentric geniuses) at CMU, the Mt. Lebanon Library, and Providence Point.

Mozart was born in Salzburg and died in Vienna 35 years later. During that tragically short life, he composed a huge amount of glorious music, much of which is still performed and enjoyed by audiences throughout the world. The theater and movie portrayals of his life in Amadeus increased interest and knowledge about him, but were somewhat simplified and re-enforced some of the myths about his life and death.

The 250th anniversary of his birth in 2006 also stimulated a renewed interest in this complex human being, his tumultuous life and his beautiful music. He was an amazing child prodigy whose talents and ability were fostered and also exploited by his father. He was a mature composer by the age of 20 when most composers were just beginning their training, He struggled financially and to be accepted throughout most of his life, but during his last 10 years in Vienna composed some of the finest music in the entire European classical tradition.

Presenter Dr. Cleon Cornes is a retired psychiatrist who enjoys teaching courses (mostly about eccentric geniuses) at CMU, the Mt. Lebanon Library, and Providence Point.

Mozart was born in Salzburg and died in Vienna 35 years later. During that tragically short life, he composed a huge amount of glorious music, much of which is still performed and enjoyed by audiences throughout the world. The theater and movie portrayals of his life in Amadeus increased interest and knowledge about him, but were somewhat simplified and re-enforced some of the myths about his life and death.

The 250th anniversary of his birth in 2006 also stimulated a renewed interest in this complex human being, his tumultuous life and his beautiful music. He was an amazing child prodigy whose talents and ability were fostered and also exploited by his father. He was a mature composer by the age of 20 when most composers were just beginning their training, He struggled financially and to be accepted throughout most of his life, but during his last 10 years in Vienna composed some of the finest music in the entire European classical tradition.

Join us in a series of programs planned by the Mt. Lebanon Public Library in collaboration with the Historical Society of Mount Lebanon that highlight local Civil War history. 

The Civil War in Pennsylvania: A Photographic History

Kenneth C. Turner will talk about the history and photos that comprise his co-authored book The Civil War in Pennsylvania: A Photographic History. Pennsylvania fulfilled its role as the Keystone State when the Civil War erupted in 1861. Its large size and varied economy contributed 315,000 men and more munitions than any other state, while on the home front, women and children tended to vast farms and filled factory jobs. The Civil War in Pennsylvania: A Photographic History presents for the first time in a single volume the story of the war's impact on the state as told through photographs. Hundreds of images from private collections offer a rare glimpse of images over the past 150 years.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

The Finding Presence Series is a three-part collaborative programming event with the Mt. Lebanon Public Library, The Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh and the Artsmiths of Pittsburgh. We will explore through three different mediums; sound, body movement and art pathways to fuller awareness of the present moment. Each event will be held at the host site. Please call the Mt. Lebanon Public Library for additional information (412) 531-1912.

Finding Presence with Yoga at the Himalayan Institute

We hear so much about being present and the richness it can bring to our lives.  But what stands in the way?

 

Everyday, we are bombarded with information.  We take impressions in through our senses and it is up to our minds to process everything.  Because the information comes in constantly, we become overwhelmed and our minds start to spin.  Join us to learn techniques to withdraw the senses, quiet the mind and enjoy a peaceful presence that is always there underneath the chaos.  Leave feeling refreshed and focused.

This class will take place at the Himalayan Institute

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Presenter Dr. Cleon Cornes is a retired psychiatrist who enjoys teaching courses (mostly about eccentric geniuses) at CMU, the Mt. Lebanon Library, and Providence Point.

Mozart was born in Salzburg and died in Vienna 35 years later. During that tragically short life, he composed a huge amount of glorious music, much of which is still performed and enjoyed by audiences throughout the world. The theater and movie portrayals of his life in Amadeus increased interest and knowledge about him, but were somewhat simplified and re-enforced some of the myths about his life and death.

The 250th anniversary of his birth in 2006 also stimulated a renewed interest in this complex human being, his tumultuous life and his beautiful music. He was an amazing child prodigy whose talents and ability were fostered and also exploited by his father. He was a mature composer by the age of 20 when most composers were just beginning their training, He struggled financially and to be accepted throughout most of his life, but during his last 10 years in Vienna composed some of the finest music in the entire European classical tradition.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:45 PM Flight 93: The Story, the Aftermath, and the Legacy of American Courage on 9/11    
   

United Airlines Flight 93, which took off from Newark Airport the morning of September 11th, 2001, is perhaps the most famous flight in modern American history: We know of the passenger uprising, but there’s so much more to the story besides its harrowing and oft-told climax. Amazingly, the definitive account of this seminal event has yet to be written. 

Tom McMillan's book Flight 93: The Story, the Aftermath, and the Legacy of American Courage on 9/11 offers the most complete account of what actually took place aboard Flight 93 – from its delayed takeoff in Newark to the moment it plunged upside-down at 563 miles per hour into an open field in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Flight 93 provides a riveting and complete narrative of the lead-up, event, and aftermath of the flight, based on interviews, oral histories, personal tours of the crash site and evidence recently made public. It examines the lead-up to that horrific morning; the stories of the victims who were launched into the center of history; the revolt that saved untold amounts of carnage on the ground and likely, the US Capitol; the eyewitnesses and first responders who rushed to the crash scene; the impact on family members; the effort to uncover evidence at the site; and the legacy the story leaves for future generations. 

In anticipation of the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Tom McMillan will visit the library to discuss his book. Copies will be on sale for purchase and signing.

misc_none 1:30 PM  -  3:30 PM Author's Visit: Benny Zelkowicz    
    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Benny Zelkowicz, author of The First Book of Ore The Foundry's Edge (The Books of Ore) and the recently released sequel The Second Book of Ore Waybound will pop by the library to talk about his book series, answer questions, and sign books. A Mt. Lebanon High School graduate, Benny studied biopsychology at Oberlin College and earned an MFA in Experimental animation. He made an award-winning film, The ErlKing, animated entirely with sand, that screened all over the world. Benny also directed the kids' show "Lunar Jim" and provided the voice for the title character. Over the past thirteen years, Benny has worked on tons of commercials, music videos, feature films, and TV shows, and now, through some weird twist of fate, he's an author, too.

In the The First Book of Ore The Foundry's Edge (for Grades 5-8), the Foundry, a metal-forging behemoth, controls the world’s supply of trinkets, fashion, construction materials, vehicles, and, of course, weapons. Phoebe’s father is one of its most powerful players, and when he’s kidnapped by mysterious bespectacled animatrons, she and her nemesis turned friend, Micah, follow him into the depths of Mekh, a hidden world full of living metal. As Phoebe and Micah search the strange metallic environment, they realize that the Foundry hasn’t invented anything; it has merely plundered Mekh for its resources and enslaved its population. With a few new metal friends, the teens seek out Phoebe’s father, and she struggles to accept the part he has played in Mekh’s destruction.

In the Second Volume, Phoebe Plumm and Micah Tanner are a long way from home and entrenched in a struggle with no end in sight. The Foundry, an all-powerful company that profits off the living metal creatures of Mehk, is unleashing a wave of devastating attacks to crush the rebel army of mehkans known as the Covenant and capture Phoebe and Micah, dead or alive. But the Covenant believes that their ancient god, Makina, has chosen Phoebe for a sacred task: to seek the Occulyth, a mysterious object they hope can turn the tide against the Foundry. With her father gone, Phoebe's once unshakable determination is broken, and while Micah tries to uphold the vow he made to protect her no matter the cost, their enemies are closing in and time is running out.

BookList says: "Baity and Zelkowicz put their experience as animators to work, describing the alien metal world and its mind-bendingly outlandish denizens with such an eye for visual detail that they clatter to life on the page. The imaginative world, whirlwind adventure, tense emotional stakes, and some well-placed laughs put this first in a planned series in the same stack as Harry Potter and Percy Jackson."

The approaching holidays and colder months can be especially challenging for those who have recently faced or are currently facing the loss of a loved one. We will be providing four unique programs in our Living Through Grief series that are designed to provide practical strategies to aid the bereaved in their grieving process.  

David Klineburger, a clinical mental health counselor will introduce and present what is known as Worden's (J. William Worden) Four Tasks of Grieving (accepting the reality of the loss; work through the pain and grief; adjusting to life without the loved-one; and discover  enduring connections with the deceased while committing to and embarking on a new life). This evidence-based approach has been most helpful supporting the bereaved, both on an individual basis and on the group level.

 

David Klineburger is clinical mental health counselor at the Meier Clinics, located in Mt. Lebanon

The approaching holidays and colder months can be especially challenging for those who have recently faced or are currently facing the loss of a loved one. We will be providing four unique programs in our Living Through Grief series that are designed to provide practical strategies to aid the bereaved in their grieving process.  

Losing a loved one is one of the most difficult things that can happen to a person. Even though we know that people die, when we lose someone close it can be very hard to move forward. Dr. Stahl will present emerging research on grief after bereavement and will lead a discussion with attendees about simple steps, including lifestyle choices that may serve to promote health and well-being after bereavement. Attendees will be invited to be screened for a bereavement program called WELL, promoting Widowed Elders’ Lifestyle after Loss, after the presentation if they wish to participate.

Dr. Stahl earned her PhD in Life-span Developmental Psychology in 2011 from West Virginia University. She then completed postdoctoral training in Geriatric Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh prior to her appointment to the Department of Psychiatry faculty in 2014. Her research focuses on promoting mental and physical health among older adults who are grieving the loss of a spouse or partner. Her research program is funded by the National Institute of Mental Health.

Increasing Your Happiness Workshop I: A Gaming Strategy for Feeling Super Better

The majority of us will experience health, work, relationship, or financial challenges during our lives which will likely decrease our happiness, well-being. Since we need to be prepared for these challenges, it’s helpful to have a plan for times when we’ll be down and for times in our everyday lives when we simply want to feel better.  In this workshop, the instructor, Laura Parkinson, M.S. Counseling, with 30 years corporate training experience, will provide a brief overview of the latest scientifically researched Super Better gaming strategy as it relates to the PERMA-V positive psychology model. Students will participate in discussion, small group and individual learning activities to learn, practice new Super Better gaming techniques. At the end of this 90 minute workshop, each student will have completed the Super Better workbook which provides him/her with a game plan for feeling better when the challenging times come and specific happiness boosters for his/her everyday life.

THE QUIET AMERICAN,  2002

Based on Graham Greene’s novel, THE QUIET AMERICAN, this movie gives insight into the beginning of America’s involvement in Vietnam. Set in Saigon in 1952, the story is told through the eyes of world-weary journalist, Thomas Fowler. His comfortable life is altered by the arrival of young aid worker, Alden Pyle. Part love story and part cautionary tale, THE QUIET AMERICAN captures the early events of the conflict in Vietnam. Michael Caine was nominated for an Academy Award for his moving portrayal of Thomas Fowler.
