Hug Therapy Book Event
Sep 19, 2019

Hug Therapy Book Event

Dr. Stone’s prescription is for a 21-second hug today and every day. One of the many benefits of hugging is that longer hugs have proven physiological benefits. Hugs are good for your immune system, your stress response, your sleep patterns, and so much more.

Dr. Stone's Hug Therapy, brings to life the meaning of hugging. In this book, you will discover hat it means to really, truly give yourself and others the profound gift of a hug, as well as how to be powerfully in action and more aware of what matters to you most. You will also learn that you may choose to begin hugging some strangers…with their blessing of course. Most importantly, you will see that together, one literal or metaphorical hug at a time, we make the world a better, healthier, and more connected place 

Hug Therapy shares a full-on, unconditional hug from Dr. Stone Kraushaar. In this book, he invites you to wrap your arms around yourself, your life, and everyone around you in a whole new way. A good embrace—a hug—squeezes every ounce of fear, worry, and negativity out of your spirit, leaving you with nothing but warmth, inner peace, and a feeling of connection.

Please join Dr. Stone for an evening of book signings, discussion and free hugs!

Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety  Event

Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety Event

The Lyons Township High School community is invited to attend a parenting presentation, entitled Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety, Thursday, September 19, at 7pm in the North Campus Reber Center, 100 S. Brainard Ave., LaGrange. Admission is free.

The presentation will discuss the world our kids are navigating and how it is so radically different than it was even a few years ago. Teens are psychologically and emotionally burdened by social media, unreasonable academic and social stressors, and an unprecedented stream of information. They are exposed to the harshest elements of the world much too soon, as early as 8- or 9-years-old.

Presenter Dr. John Duffy, author of Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety, will cover the issues and challenges you may face with your child, teen and young adult. In this complicated world of intense stimuli, kids need a compass. This discussion will help you be that compass.

 

Dr. Duffy is a La Grange-based clinical psychologist, bestselling author, podcaster, and parenting and relationship expert. He has been working in his clinical practice with individuals, couples, teens, and families for nearly 25 years.

God and Love on Route 80

The Hidden Mystery of Human Connectedness

By Stephen G. Post

As a teen at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire, the author had a recurring dream of a youth about to jump off a ledge somewhere out west. Guided by the dream as if a premonition, the boy journeyed across the country on Rt. 80 and encountered the youth on the Golden Gate Bridge where the dream became a reality as he rescued the youth in an episode of synchronicity. At that moment, the boy understood that while we exist in different places and at different times we are all inevitably intertwined, and that coincidences are just God’s way of being anonymous. GOD AND LOVE ON RT. 80 weaves together thirteen episodes of synchronicity from Post’s journey to demonstrate the power of human connectedness and the value in being open and hopeful to surprises. It’s a book that fits in the long tradition of successful metaphysical titles like The Teachings of Don Juan, Be Here Now, The Secret, The Power of Now, and Loving What Is, but by a highly regarded scientist whose work has been praised by his peers and popular readers alike.

I Kissed a Ghost (and I Liked It)

A Jersey Girl’s Reality Show . . . with Dead People

By Concetta Bertoldi

#1 Amazon New Release! ─ Wisdom for the Living with Insights from the Dead

Guidance from the other side: Life on Earth can be crazy hard. Each lifetime gives us new opportunities to learn and grow spiritually, but it’s not easy to know which way to go. Renowned medium Concetta Bertoldi knows your loved ones are there to send a hello from heaven and guide you from the other side. In I Kissed a Ghost (and I Liked It), the New York Times bestselling author shares lessons that she and her clients have learned through contact with the “dead folks” who have our backs.

The loved ones you’ve lost are always in reach: Many people visit a medium to be reassured that their loved ones are nearby. Your grief is only as deep as your love, and those who have died are in the AIR you breathe—they are always in reach. With her trademark warmth and humor, Concetta shows you how to see evidence of ghosts and spirits in this world, and how to accept their help.

Understand your soul’s divine purpose: If each of us is living our own reality show, our loved ones are the producers, guiding us through the drama and good grief. The inner voice steering you to truth may just be a ghost.

In I Kissed a Ghost (and I Liked It), you’ll learn how to:

  • Protect yourself from stuck energy
  • Forgive yourself for mistakes and regrets
  • Embrace your authentic self in this life

Awakening from Anxiety

Spiritual people often find that their own expectations of living a life dedicated to a higher power makes them more susceptible to high-functioning anxiety. Sometimes, traditional relaxation techniques either do not work, don’t last, or, in some cases, actually increase their anxiety.

Psychotherapist, yoga teacher, and interfaith minister Rev. Connie L. Habash shows us a way to transform our perceptions using mindful awareness, in order that we may live divinely inspired lives. In over 25 years as a counselor helping spiritual people overcome anxiety, Rev. Connie has taught that it takes more than chanting mantras, stretching, or relaxation techniques to calm anxiety. It requires a transformation in perception, moment-to-moment body awareness, and a conscious response to thoughts and emotions.

Sex After Grief Book Event & Workshop
Sep 24, 2019 8:00 PM

Sex After Grief Book Event & Workshop

Sex is complicated at the best of times—but when we’re overcome by grief, it’s especially mysterious and confusing. How do we nurture ourselves as sexual beings when we’re grieving the death of a partner? Why does taking care of ourselves sexually matter at a time when we’d rather hide under the covers and wail? How do we know when it’s time to open ourselves to the sexual phase of a new relationship? And how do we do it?

 Sex after Grief is the first book to address sex and grief together and treat sex as a normal, positive, life-affirming part of emerging from such a difficult time. Joan Price, the top expert on senior sex, draws on her own experiences as a widow since 2008, when she lost the love of her life to cancer. She shares her raw grief journey, sexual reawakening (and the many stumbles along the way), and attempts to dip back into dating, along with excellent advice on handling each step.

Please join Joan Price for a workshop featuring her new book, Sex After Grief. This evening will be empowering and fun!
