Nesteruk, Donna Sound Meditation and Guided Imagery Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other,
Other
Quartz crystal bowls resonate at frequencies that produce powerful sound waves. These vibrations produce the energetic sounds that manifest the crystalline structure of the bowls themselves. The bowl sound may resonate in a uniquely harmonious fashion with the human body since our healthy human tissues are more crystalline than fluid in nature.  The bowls also resonate with the human voice.  The sounds permeate our systems, resonating with our essence, so that inner chaos, conflict, and dissonance seem almost immediately to be transformed into harmony. Other meditative sounds are also combined during this session to create a restorative and relaxing experience. Guided imagery is a conscious, intentional use of your imagination, which accesses your sub-conscious mind via sensory images.  Because our bodies cannot distinguish the difference between reality and fiction, sensory images evoke the same chemical and physiological reactions, as do real events.  Benefits: ~By imagining scenes that produce serenity, immunity is bolstered and stress hormones are reduced.  ~Listening to music also assists in a more effective imagery session. ~ Chemical reactions have a direct and positive affect on the immune system as modulation of neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and messenger molecules are occurring within the body.

Cain, Ron Ron Cain's Olymp-Trick Games Magic Show Health & Fitness- Sports,
Performing Arts- Magic,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Central New York magician Ron Cain takes young readers on an imaginary journey to ancient Greece. His Olymp-Trick Games Magic Show highlights the 2016 summer reading program theme, On Your Mark, Get Set. . . READ! The 45-minute program combines an Olympic-style emphasis on sports with Greek myths and legends. Cain tells the audience he needs help finding the ultimate champion of his Olymp-Trick Games. The contenders are Greek gods, goddesses and heroes. Each must perform a magic trick related to an Olympic event. Children volunteer to play the contestants during the show. Will Heracles (Hercules) best everyone in illusions involving feats of strength? Is Artemis faster at sleight-of-hand than her twin brother, Apollo? Can greedy King Midas magically win the gold in any event? Cain is a former history teacher who recently traveled to Greece to visit Panathenaic Stadium, site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896. The ancient Greeks valued physical fitness and sports, which prompted them to create the Olympic Games more than 2,700 years ago. They also were great thinkers and writers. Cain hopes his show will inspire young people to visit their local library to read about Greek history and mythology.
