Journey Into the Wild Mind, Thursdays, October 23, November 6 and November 20, 2014, 7:00pm - 8:30pm, Classroom D. Join George Wine Chase, a soul journey psychotherapist. The poet Mary Oliver invites everyone to fully engage our "one wild and precious life." You are invited on a journey to discover and use the map of your wild mind. Our "field guide" will be the book Wild Mind by Bill Plotkin. This is not a therapy group or an enlightenment group, though there is no guarantee those won’t happen. Nor is it an invitation to get lost in the distant past of our lives. While the map and exercises in Wild Mind do not
ignore our wounds, the emphasis is on developing each of our innate strengths. The class will include some teaching; however, the focus will be on imaginal and experiential exercises. Between classes people are invited to expand, explore and deepen these experiences. If this sounds Greek but interesting, you are invited to come to the first session and sample the menu to see if you want to sign up for the full meal deal.
First session: Thursday, September 11, 7:00 – 8:30pm, Unity Temple on the Plaza, Classroom D.
Following times will be every other Thursday for five sessions (Sept 25, Oct 9 & 23, Nov 6 & 20).

Suggested love offering: $10/session. For questions and additional info contact: gwinechase@gmail.com

He will describe eight forms of time travel in use by the U.S. government by1970; explain why children were involved in time travel; what future events the U.S. government had prior knowledge of in the early 1970s; and evaluate public policy alternatives pertaining to time travel.   Patrons and PSI members $15, Public $20 (cash and checks only)  www.psychicstudiesinstitute.org

At this Saturday program Mr. Basiago will discuss his experiences in the CIA’s Mars Project (1980-1984).

These experiences occurred during his college years when he was a part of CIA Mars Project (1980-1983). Andrew will recount his training and share his experiences visiting Mars via "jump room" and present his best evidence showing that Mars is inhabited. Both programs will have photographs.

Truman Library Institute-The Howard & Virginia Bennett Forum on the Presidency, Saturday, November 1, 2014, 6:00pm - 7:30pm, Main Sanctuary. BILL MOYERS ON LBJ With Special Guest Bob Kerrey. Bill Moyers is regarded as one of the most prolific and influential figures in American journalism, but in 1964 he was known as "the young man next to the president," a moniker given by TIME Magazine to Lyndon Baines Johnson's special assistant and, later, chief of staff.

Now, Moyers will make a rare encore appearance and return to the Truman Library Institute's Howard and Virginia Bennett Forum on the Presidency to speak publicly - for the first time - about his close association with LBJ, the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and the intertwined legacies of Presidents Johnson and Truman. 

Moyers was appointed associate director for the newly created Peace Corps in 1961. When LBJ took office after Kennedy's assassination, he became a special assistant to Johnson. He played a key role in the Great Society legislative task forces and was a principal architect of LBJ's 1964 presidential campaign. Moyers acted as the president's informal chief of staff from 1964 until 1966; from 1965 to 1967, he served as White House press secretary.

This exceptional event will feature a program by Bill Moyers, followed by a conversation with the live audience, moderated by former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey. 

The eighth annual Howard and Virginia Bennett Forum on the Presidency is presented by the Truman Library Institute, member-supported nonprofit partner of the Truman Library.
