His presentation will be based on the best-selling Inner and Outer Peace through Meditation by Rajinder Singh. All participants will be taught how to meditate on the “inner light.” What a great way to slow down our hectic lives, find inner calm, and help to foster a renewed energy and tranquility.

Saturday, July 23, 2 pm –Kenny Blackwell & Dorian Michael, Live in Concert. The community is invited to join friends and neighbors for a great live performance of duo Kenny Blackwell (mandolin) and Dorian Michael (guitar). The duo's diverse backgrounds are the wellspring for a performance of exciting and heartfelt music. Their enthusiasm for making music and their respect for their audience is plainly evident whenever they perform.
Dorian says that, "Some music makes you feel deeply, some music makes you think and some tunes are played just for the sheer fun of it. We like to try to get to all those places in the space of a concert!" This will be a fun, family-friendly concert that brings great music right to the library. Location: Fireplace Room at the Downtown Library, 1044 Middlefield Road.
