WEBINAR: “Creating Happiness Through Meditation in the New Year”

DATE: Wednesday, January 20th
TIME: 5:30pm to 6:30pm
LOCATION: Online, Zoom Conference

PLEASE NOTE: You will receive the zoom link the DAY BEFORE THE PROGRAM.

The Science of Happiness.  Our first meeting of the new year will be an introduction to meditation and its health benefits. With the fast pace of modern life, many people feel stressed, tired, and unhappy. We can learn how to make 2021 healthy and happy for us.  Happiness is a frame of mind, but also an expression of our physiology. How can we create happiness from the level of the body? Meditation is one answer. Specifically, the Transcendental Meditation® technique has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and create happiness.

Deep within, beyond thought, is the most settled state of awareness, a reservoir of creativity, intelligence and happiness. This field is said to be transcendental because it is not ordinarily available to the active, conscious mind.  The direct experience of this expansive consciousness satisfies our ceaseless quest for happiness and infuses joy into all our perceptions. To experience it and unfold it in our lives, we must dive deep within. During the TM practice, our attention goes beyond the surface thinking mind and settles inward to experience restful alertness. In this state, the body gains profound relaxation, allowing deep-rooted tensions and anxieties to melt away, rejuvenating mind and body.

With regular practice of the TM technique, people experience that they spontaneously find more happiness in the moment. Elaine and her team are certified teachers who have been teaching TM for a combined 30 years at the Transcendental Meditation center in Palm Beach.

He found his perfect “radio” home at the new Legends 100.3. FW which features the “Great American Songbook”. This is the canon of the most important and influential American popular songs and jazz standards from the early 20th century that have stood the test of time in their life and legacy.

WEBINAR: Happiness Is…An Education – presentation by Kathie Kreh
DATE: Monday, Sep 14, 2020
TIME: 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM
LOCATION: Online, Zoom Conference

My joy has never been more complete than when working with youth in Africa. My father’s work in Africa, my faith, and 12+ years as a missionary while sponsoring children in Uganda gave me the eyes and heart to see education in Africa as a calling.

In a world peppered with abundance while so many struggles for daily survival, education is the great equalizer and opportunity multiplier. Not only does it prepare, equip, and empower young minds for higher learning, it stirs innovation, discovery, connection and creativity.

With a sense of urgency shared by international aid agencies, we provide educational support to orphans and impoverished kids in Africa. These could and should be the world’s next great peacemakers, entrepreneurs, inventors, and arts icons; yet in sub-Saharan Africa alone, 97 million lie in wait of an education.

We delight in the excitement of our older African youth who receive an education and get to work toward their dreams. It fuels our hope for a better tomorrow. African Orphan Educational Foundation is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports the educational and personal development needs of disadvantaged youth in Africa at the Primary, Secondary and Post-Secondary levels.
