GLENDALE, Ariz.– It’s hard to believe, but “The Unexplained” will begin its tenth season at 7 p.m. on June 5 at the Main Library, 5959 W. Brown St. Adult Programming Librarian Anne Owens has a captivating group of speakers in place, on Thursday evenings, running through August 28. The free programs are held on in the library’s auditorium.
Looking back over the last ten years, the topics have run the gamut from A-Z of strange, weird, unbelievable, could it be? and I wonder… This year, look for an eclectic mix of psychics, holistic healers, metaphysical practitioners, intuitives, spiritual coaches/counselors, and astrologers.
June 5 - “Is Your Pet Psychic?” with Brandy L. Howe, D.D., will kick the series off. According to Dr. Howe, scientific research is slowly beginning to substantiate the many anecdotal claims of pet owners who say their animals are psychic. Animals who find their owners after separations of hundreds of miles can be displaying a form of clairvoyance that parapsychologists have called “remote viewing.” This is the ability to see distant locations without the use of the five senses. Find out more about animal ESP from this traditional Naturopath and Life Science Practitioner. Dr. Howe is also a Reiki Master and an Intiutive/Spiritual Consultant.

June 26 - Angel Monachelli, a Reiki Master/Teacher and owner of Lightworkers Gifts, will talk about “Finding Your Wheel Within.” Monachelli says that in the sacred space of the Universal Medicine Wheel, people move rhythmically to balance their chi, or life energy, so that it flows throughout one’s whole being. Individuals meditate in the top and bottom halves of the Universal Wheel to balance energies and to help release all that is no longer need in their lives. Users of the Wheel affirm statements of choice about their lives and create energy “balls” of love, light and healing to support us in those choices. Individuals experience the flow of all life through connecting with the elements in the Universal Wheel (Creator, Mother Earth, Male, Female, Father Sun, Grandma Moon, Water, Wind and Fire).
