Vol. 12, No. 25 – Sept 11 – Sept 24, 2019 – Ojai News & Events

Ojai local Henry N. Mooney will visit the Ojai Library at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, to present a special lecture titled “The Plasticene – Exploring the Hidden Social and Economic Costs of Plastics in the Modern Age.”

Our global usage of disposable plastics can no longer be considered sustainable. And, even though we’re all told to bring re-usable bags everywhere, or say no to straws at restaurants, our global consumption of plastics continues to rise on an annual basis, so clearly there is a piece of the puzzle missing in combatting plastics.

Join Henry Mooney to explore the hidden social and economic costs of our global dependence on disposability, the direct links of plastics to fossil fuel industries, and the pitfalls of a throw-away society.

Hear psychotherapist and Naropa University Faculty member Harmony Kwiker, MA, at the Ojai Library at 1 p.m. on Friday, September 13, as she reads from her vulnerable self-help memoir Reveal: Embody the True Self Beyond Trauma and Conditioning. During this event, Harmony will facilitate a unique relational meditation designed to empower you to find your authentic voice.

Lori Mohr will visit the Ojai Library at 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 21, to deliver a talk entitled “Walls that Talk: Murals from the 1930s.” Ms. Mohr comes to Ojai via the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Community Speakers Program.

What do public murals of the 1930s have in common with cave paintings dating back 40,000 years? One thing—they tell a story of their time.

Events are free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at (805) 218-9146.

The Ojai Library is located at 111 East Ojai Avenue in Ojai, CA. Hours of service are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

Join Rev. Karen S. Wylie at The Ojai Retreat on Sunday, September 15, from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. for her Mid-Month Devotional Retreat, which will explore “Utilizing Your Innate Power.”

“Each of us is a powerful being of light,” Rev. Karen says, “but most of us don’t know it; and hence, we don’t use the power that is ours to entirely shift our world for the better. Join us on Sunday as we explore our true nature and the gifts we’ve been given.”

The Ojai Retreat is at 160 Besant Road, Ojai. The retreat is by donation; $20 is suggested. For more information, contact Rev. Karen at 310-968-8928, or register online at www.karenswylie.com. Rev.
