“What to Do with Peak Experiences” discussion at Grateful Steps, Sept. 19

Edward O’Keefe, author of “Take It From the Top,” leads an interfaith program on “What to do with Peak Experiences.” Join the discussion at Grateful Steps (159 South Lexington Ave) on Thursday, Sept. 19, 5:30-7 p.m.

From a press release: “Peak experiences can occur for individuals of any faith or no faith and to individuals of any age, so writes Edward O’Keefe, Ph.D., author of Take It From the Top. Peak experiences are those mountain-top moments when we are suddenly taken out of ourselves. They are usually ecstatic, of short duration, difficult to describe, and they are always unforgettable. Have you had any? Come share them with us. Dr. O’Keefe, a Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist, is a native of Niagara Falls, New York. He and his wife, Romella, are ordained, non-denominational ministers. The book includes peak experiences of such well-known individuals as Albert Einstein, Julie Andrews and C.S. Lewis.”
