New 8-Week Series!
MINDFULNESS-BASED STRESS REDUCTION** with Sunada Takagi
Wednesdays, March 27 - May 15, 7-9:30pm
plus one daylong class on Sunday, May 12, 9-4
Mindfulness isn’t so much a tool or technique, but a different way of being. When we pay attention to our present moments, we start to see ourselves and our world more clearly. Instead of being driven by worry, anxiety, or feeling pressured, we begin to choose our responses more wisely. We find our way to a more balanced and centered life, guided by our inner strengths and values rather than old habits and reactions. This 8-week series is a thorough introduction to the art of mindfulness. It’s based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work in mind-body medicine originated at the UMass Medical Center. $450/sliding scale preregistration required

POSITIVE AGING: Recollecting Highlights and Gathering Wisdom for the Journey Ahead ~ Focusing with Joan Klagsbrun
Sunday, March 31, 2-4pm ~ Aging has, as one of its benefits, the possibility of perspective and looking back. It also has the promise of greater wisdom for future living. This workshop, for those who consider themselves to be in mid-life or beyond, will explore highlights from our lived years, and will open us to the intrinsic wisdom we carry within. We will explore what aging means to each of us, and will reflect on how we have gained wisdom from past experiences. We will then turn to the future, and explore how, through Focusing, we can find personal wisdom for our journey ahead. $25 payable at the door by check or cash
