April 8, 2015 – How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health

Belief, Health, Psychology, Science, Thought Comments Off on April 8, 2015 – How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health


Join us Wednesday April 8,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Thinking Our Way to Sickness, Pain and Death: How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health”
Presented by Professor Keith Lyle.

Many people view sickness, pain, and death as inevitable biological phenomena that occur quite independently of what we might think about them.  But psychological research challenges that notion and reveals surprising links between mind and health.  In this talk, Professor Lyle will describe those links and discuss the many ways our health might benefit from the proper mindset.

Keith received his PhD in Psychology from Yale University in 2005.  He’s currently an Associate Professor of Psychological and Brain Processes at the University of Louisville, where he teaches courses on Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Processes, and Human Memory. His research interests include memory enhancement and eyewitness memory.  He also studies personality, with an emphasis on authoritarianism and mental flexibility.

Keith joined LES back in 2011 for a fascinating presentation and discussion. At that time, he shared with us the results of some precognition experiments he had conducted at U of L’s psych lab, based on the experiments designed by Daryl J. Bem – Psychology Professor Emeritus at Cornell University. Professor Bem reported in late 2010 that his experiments had scientifically proven for the first time the existence of precognition. More recently Keith has become interested in studying the connection of how our thoughts directly impact our health,  and will share with us some of the conclusions being reached by both himself and other researchers in this field. He will also share some information on the  correct mindset that may benefit our health.

Please join LES as we welcome Professor Keith Lyle for another fascinating presentation and discussion.


All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.

September 24, 2014 (Wednesday) – The Four Agreements

Psychology, Self Actualization Comments Off on September 24, 2014 (Wednesday) – The Four Agreements


Join us Wednesday September 24, 2014 at 6:30 PM for “The Four Agreements“ presented by Logan McCulloch.

Of all the forms of knowledge, perhaps the knowledge of self is the most empowering and yet the most difficult to obtain.  No one else can access this knowledge on your behalf.  The revelations, insights and gifts of personal freedom and expansion are all your own.  But the work to obtain this knowledge is your own as well.  The bestselling book, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom was first published in 1997.  As of this writing there are 2,728 reader reviews for this self proclaimed wisdom book, and it ranks among the top 100 sellers on Amazon.com.  In The Four Agreements shamanic teacher and healer Don Miguel Ruiz exposes common self-limiting beliefs and presents a simple yet effective code of personal conduct learned from his Toltec ancestors.  The four agreements are these:

  • Be impeccable with your word.
  • Don’t take anything personally.
  • Don’t make assumptions.
  • Always do your best.

Join us on September 24th for an interactive discussion intended to help reveal some of the hidden determinants of human behavior, including a few exercises to help you uncover some subconscious and perhaps self-limiting beliefs that may be distracting you from experiencing greater degrees of personal freedom and creativity.  There is no need to read to book prior to this session

All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.
