Learn About the Power of Heartfulness

Two local book readings with Q&A will coincide with the release of The Heartfulness Way, by Kamlesh D. Patel and Joshua Pollock: from 7 to 9 p.m., July 24, at Giant Food Store, 2300 Lingelstown Road, in Harrisburg; and 7 to 9 p.m., July 26, at the Living Well Institute, 20 Valley Road, in Hershey. There will also be a short meditation session. All proceeds from book sales go to Heartfulness organization.

Dr. Jay Thimmapuram, a Heartfulness trainer and physician, will discuss the scientific studies on meditation he conducted at Well Span Hospital in York. Those studies included the effect on telomeres, as well as the impact of meditation on sleep.

In the book, Patel, known as the guru Daaji, traces a seeker’s journey as he examines the nature of spiritual search. Through a series of illuminating conversations between a teacher and a student, he reveals the principles of the Heartfulness practice and philosophy to Pollock.
