Old Forge Library to host sound healing, gratitude events in mid-November

The community is encouraged to join certified sound healing practitioner, Andrea Lisette Villiere, on Tuesday, November 15 at 5:30 pm at the Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd., to try a free session of sound healing. Registered attendees will relax and rejuvenate with Tibetan healing bowls, a soundscape designed to revive, with sounds that transport and carry worries away.

Sound healing uses the power of sound to restore one’s mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance. The harmonic vibrations from the instruments produce sound waves that have a deep penetrating effect on the receiver, promoting healing and well-being.

Andrea has over 300 hours of training, is fully devoted and dedicated to furthering her studies, and continues to evolve her healing practice. She has been offering sound baths and sharing her passion for sound healing since 2015. She received her training at the Sage Academy of Sound Energy, the BioSonic Academy of Music and Sound Healing, and the Omega Institute.  Andrea presently lives in Old Forge.

Space is limited. Although there is no fee, registration is required. Please call the library at (315) 369-6008 or email  to reserve a space.


Discussion about Gratitude: Thursday, November 17 at 5:30 pm. 


Community members are invited to join their friends at the Old Forge Library, 220 Crosby Blvd., for a Discussion about Gratitude on Thursday, November 17 at 5:30 pm.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, this will be an examination of gratitude and the role it plays in creating happier lives. Quick activities and exercises will prompt participants to express and cultivate gratitude and be thankful.

Library director and discussion leader, Linda Weal said this about the program, “Gratitude is the best tool in my toolkit for having a happy life. When I am thankful I appreciate the bounty I experience every day, and it gives me perspective and eliminates any self-pity. I encourage anyone to join us and share what they are thankful for. You’ll leave feeling better than you came.”

Library programs are free and open to all. Please call the library at (315) 369-6008 or e-mail to register for the discussion. Walk-ins are welcome for this program.
