We now have a world-wide epidemic of stress with anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, violence, addictive behavior. Dr. Brown will discuss a drug free, large group intervention based on simple techniques from yoga, qi-gong and orthodox Christian monastic practices that are scientifically based. After brief discussion of the science we will experience a brief practice and then share the effect on our mind-body-spirit.

Richard P. Brown, MD, associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, graduate of Columbia University Medical College and Cornell University Psychiatry Residency and Psychobiology/Psychopharmacology fellowship, lectures internationally and has co-authored over 100 scientific articles, books chapters and award winning books. His neurophysiological theory exploring effects of yoga breathing in treating anxiety, depression, PTSD and stress-related medical conditions has been validated in clinical trials. A certified teacher of Aikido (4th Dan), yoga, Qigong, and meditation, he provides Breath-Body-Mind to healthcare professionals, yoga teachers, mass disaster survivors, first responders, veterans, school teachers, and patients with psychiatric and medical conditions. www.Breath-Body-Mind.com.

Debate: The Pros and Cons of a NYS Constitutional Convention
Debate: The Pros and Cons of a NYS Constitutional Convention
Sunday, November 5, 2017 - 2:00pm
Social Hall

Before election day, join Ethical as two experts debate the pros and cons of holding a state constitutional convention.

A vote on whether to hold a New York State constitutional convention happens every 20 years. We last voted on it in 1997 and we will be voting on it this Election Day, Tuesday, November 7th.

Many people are unaware of what it means, and its importance. This "debate" will give us all an opportunity to learn what is at stake so we can vote with a clear understanding of what our vote will mean.

Representing the pro side will be Suzannne Stassevitch from the League of Women Voters and representing the con side will be Michael Kink from Strong Economy for All Coalition.
