Library Salon Series

Dr. Neferete Rasheed

The Library Salon Series was designed as a forum for library members and others interested in exploring topics related to Consciousness and Spirituality.

The Library Salon Series is another way we have chosen to use the Library as a resource for the local spiritual community and our guests.

The Series gives us a chance to explore an array of stimulating topics that resonate with the path of Self Realization and help to keep our personal explorations of consciousness ‘ever-new,’ uplifted, and expansive. In the past, we’ve hosted a variety of short two-hour programs and lectures, including topics related to Vedic Astrology, Vastu, Mantras, Flower Essences, Healing Arts, Yoga Philosophy, Saints and Sages, Yogic Living and more.
