Raiders of the Lost Arts - The Roots of Meditation
We will talk about several types of meditation such as Loving Kindness Meditation, Theravada Meditation, Guided Imagery, Qi Gong and Yoga. We will look at the cultural roots of meditation and the origins. Shamanism, including meditative practices, goes back according to some authors at least 30 thousand years. And Chinese and Indian culture has left a rich meditation heritage starting 7,000 years ago that still can be enjoyed and celebrated by all. We will discuss how his began. We will also explore the neurological roots of meditation. What the mystics have always known, the scientists are now confirming, that meditation changes brain waves, grows gray and white matter, effects blood flow and blood gases and changes endocrine and neurotransmitter levels in the brain. Meditation for wellness and chronic pain will be specifically addressed.
A cosmology theory about Meditation (as researched by IONS) implies that death simply does not exist. Meditation research shows that consciousness exists independent of time and space. Meditation agrees with the basic ideas behind quantum mechanics, namely that a particle (consciousness) can be present anywhere and an event can occur according to several, sometimes numerous, ways.
On Friday August 4, 2017, OMS presents Marie Kramer
A Basic Introduction to Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to balance, sooth, and uplift the whole person: Body, Mind, and Spirit. From Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Chinese manuscripts, we know that essential oils have been used for thousands of years. There are almost 200 references to essential oils in the Bible, such as frankincense, myrrh, rosemary, hyssop, and spikenard. The 3 wise men presented the Christ child with essential oils of frankincense and myrrh. There are also accounts in the Bible where Jesus was anointed with Spikenard oil.
Marie will be presenting a basic introduction into the use of Aromatherapy, and its different applications and methods. You will experience different oils that you may resonate with. You will come away with an appreciation of their power and effectiveness.

On Friday September 1, 2017, OMS presents Bob Shell
The Three Principles Responsible for Human Experience
In 1973 Sydney Banks, a Scottish welder with a 9th grade education, living on a remote island off the coast of British Columbia, had an epiphany. This led him to come up with what he called “The Three Principles.” These three principles are the basis for human experience, and without any one of these three, life would not exist. Understanding these principles, and how they work together, has led thousands of people to live happier lives relatively free of stress. Michael Neill wrote a book in 2013 called, “The Inside-Out Revolution,” based on the three principles. The basic premise of the book is that our Feelings are not controlled by outside circumstances. They are controlled by our Thinking About outside circumstances; not the circumstances themselves. Truly Understanding the three principles of MIND, CONSCIOUSNESS, and THOUGHT, at a deep level, leads to a life filled with peace and love.
Bob Shell has been a student of positive psychology, personal growth, and happiness research, for over 30 years. He has read literally hundreds of books on these subjects. In 2003, after reading Michael Neill’s book, and understanding the concepts related about the three principles, his life was truly changed. As a result, he has read every book he could find relating to the three principles, and listened to hundreds of videos available online. By implementing all the knowledge gained from these various sources, he has become a different person from who he used to be. It is a rare occurrence when he doesn’t thoroughly enjoy life to the fullest, and he has learned to deal easily with things that in the past would have stressed him out. His life has changed so much, that he has become a “transformative life coach” and has worked with many people. By sharing the three principles, he has seen lives change almost instantly, when a person “got” the implications of the principles, after having an “Aha” moment. His mission in life is “to increase the amount of love in the world,” and one way he feels he can do this, is to share the knowledge he has regarding the three principles.
OMS meets the first Friday, of each month. (Please check our web site for possible additional meetings, and schedule changes). We meet at the Unity Chapel of Light, 503 Northwest Ave., Tallmadge, Ohio 44278. There are no membership requirements.
