Portage Library Wellness Series continues

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library will host its monthly program in the Natural Health and Wellness series from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9.

Richard Featherly will discuss the emotional healing work of Byron Katie and show how we are our own best therapist to resolve difficulties.

Byron Katie’s work has been compared to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy except that there is no therapist. Katie’s work consists of asking four simple questions that help people see beyond their stressful thoughts and recognize choices that alleviate emotional suffering. Featherly will explain how using Byron Katie’s method encourages an awareness of our thoughts and how our thoughts affect our lives.

The Natural Health and Wellness series is held on the second Thursday of each month. All library programs are free, and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
