A lecture will be presented by the Embassy of Ukraine about current events and changes in Ukraine, once part of the USSR and whose recent history has included the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula by Russia. The exhibit is ongoing and the lecture will be on Tuesday, April 4th at 6:30 pm. Theory of Mind: Why We Might Have Difficulty Changing Negative Patterns and Habits.If we want to be able to respond to someone compassionately, we must first understand what he or she may be thinking, feeling, or perceiving—we must have a theory of his or her mind. Carl Brown, a Connecticut licensed hypnotist, will discuss how we develop our own point of view by ways in which we take in information using the subconscious, conscious and critical parts of our mind. The program will conclude with some light hypnosis with emphasis on relaxation and stress reduction. Tuesday, April 25th, 6:00 pm.
