Author Talk: Madis Senner
The Vestal Public Library is pleased to welcome author
Madis Senner. On Wednesday, March 29

spirituality. The majority of the
material will come from his book ‘Sacred Sites in North Star Country.’ The
book details the special and sacred places in Upstate NY that helped shape the
world. Senner chose to focus his book on
this region, also referred to as the Burned-over District due to its spiritual
wildfires, as it is the birthplace of the Women’s Movement, American Democracy
and home to America’s Second Great Awakening. He will emphasize his discussion on nearby
sites such as Arnold Park.
Senner, a former
money manager turned Seeker, has been published in the NY Times and Barron’s. In addition to writing books on spirituality,
he also leads group meditations, teaches Earth Healing and is a Keeper for
several sacred sights.
