Inspiration - Living Life Mindfully: "Left to Tell"

Sunday, March 22, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

In a firsthand account, "Left to Tell: Discovering God amidst the Rwandan Holocaust" author Immaculée Ilibagiza shares her experience during the 1994 Rwandan genocide. For 91 days Ilibagiza hid in a small bathroom with seven other women listening helplessly to the slaughter of nearly one million Tutsis - men, women, and children. It was during those endless hours of unspeakable terror that she discovered the power of prayer and eventually let go of her fear of death and forged a profound and lasting relationship with God.

"Do you want to be happy or not?” Keep it that simple and you will see that it really is under your control. Many of us have deep-seated preferences that get in the way. Author and spiritual leader Michael Singer’s book "The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself" explains how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization. Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
