We were excited to welcome Dr. Matthew Raider to the library on Thursday evening, October 23rd, 2008.  He gave a talk entitled:  Total Healing:  the Meditation Prescription.

What can meditation do for you?

It can help you deal with the stress in your life.  It can boost your immune system and help you with your physical and emotional problems.

Dr. Raider presented some of the latest medical and scientific data regarding meditation and the prevention and treatment of many disease states including high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and chronic pain.

He also explained how and why meditation helps us to live in a way that gives expression to our spirit, the source of all healing and showed us how to use meditation to access your own healing power.

The Waltham Public Library has a wealth of materials on the subject of meditation.  I am enclosing a list for you here.

Web Sites For You

My name is Louise and I am honored to be able to help with this Bright Lights Series at the Waltham Public Library.  If you are fifty or older, you are a bright light!

Since I am a librarian, I felt that it would be good to give you a ‘webography’.  That means an interactive list of great sites that you can click into. Whether you want to look into a home exchange for your next vacation, take a class at Brandeis University’s Osher Institute, find out about Medicaire, do some social networking, or find out about great opportunities for recareering, these websites will help.

Have fun!  Click on the link below.
