'THE WORK' OF BYRON KATIE with Barbara Cherington
Wednesday, February 22, 7:30-9:30pm ~ How different would your life be if negative thoughts never bothered you again? The Work is a simple but powerful method of self-inquiry developed by renowned teacher and author Byron Katie. While undergoing a recovery process herself in 1986, Katie discovered that any kind of stressful thought can be identified, investigated, and inverted or 'turned around', altering the thought's power to shape perception, behavior, or one's sense of self. Join Katie trainee Barbara Cherington to explore this direct way to gain insight into your thinking and move beyond its limitations. $18 or class card at the door

Saturday, February 25, 2-4pm ~ Join Karen Barbarisi and Keith Herndon for an in-depth experience of Restorative Yoga - a therapeutic system that uses the comfortable support of cushions & blankets to nurture the body in various gentle, long held resting postures.
