ONLINE: Healing into Life & Death: Discovering what Death can Teach us About Living Fully @ ONLINE

Our circle is about “discovering what death can teach us about living fully.” It will include reading, sharing thoughts, questions, inspirations evoked by the reading. It is not necessary to read the book ahead of time. The circle is open, participants come when they can.  The conversations tend to be deep, meaningful, moving, funny, thought provoking–even life changing.

In-person: Tai-chi class
Jul 7 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Tai Chi is a series of slow, graceful martial arts movements, called a form, which is continuously flowing, always the same, gradually gaining in complexity, taking 15 – 20 minutes to complete. Students learn by following with the assistance of verbal cues. Accessible to a wide range of physical ability, Tai chi promotes strong body awareness, strengthening balance, coordination, concentration, healthy breathing, posture, core strength and flexibility. Practicing the graceful flow of Tai Chi also creates a meditative interlude from the thoughts of every day life. There is very little attention given to martial arts; It’s all in the form.

This class is free; donations are gratefully accepted. It will take place in person at the Soundview Center, in conjunction with our Roots of Wellness program. Enjoy!

ONLINE : The Poetry Apothecary

ONLINE : The Poetry Apothecary @ On-line

“…Poetry has redemptive power for me, as it does for millions of people. Poems have provided life jackets to keep me from drowning, ballast to keep me from ascending to altitudes where there’s not enough oxygen to support life, and maps to keep me from getting lost in the wilderness….” Parker J Palmer

We will to stock up the shelves of our Poetry Apothecary with poems that comfort and heal.   Come and join us to help weigh, measure and distill poems for their healing properties so we can store each one in our apothecary. Our first theme was “aging”. Bring poems that have helped you, that perhaps have companioned you through the ups and downs of life.  In subsequent meetings we will collectively decide on other themes, such as loneliness, loss, overwhelm, wonder, the healing power of nature, despondency, fragility, forgiveness and inspiration.  We will mine the storehouse of poetic literature and we will also look at poems which you may have written yourself as a way of finding resolve.

We meet 2nd and 4th Wednesdays.

Hosted by Judith Adams & Peter Martin
