4th Wednesday of every month at 1:00 p.m.
Join us in July for watercolor painting and juggling!
Now that we know that the brain can continue to learn and grow, come and experience some fun activities that help. Our brain chemistry actually changes when we work with our hands. By the simple act of using our hands we can forge entire new neuro-pathways in our brains that could not be made in a less physically active environment. It not only invigorates the mind, but can help to relieve anxiety, depression, and panic attacks. Additionally, working with our hands can become a form of mindful meditation.
In this workshop, you will experience a watercolor project and juggling as forms of mindful practice. You'll be led through simple activities utilizing your hands that will give you the experience of quieting the mental chatter in your mind and settling into a present-moment creative experience. Cost: Free, donations accepted

Do you know deep down you're meant for more? Are you feeling lost or struggling to figure out your purpose in life? Are you tired of reading every article on how to find your calling, life purpose, destiny, yet still have no idea what yours is?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop is for you. You are destined for big things. You do have a purpose to fulfill here on earth. You have your own unique talents and gifts that YOU are meant to share with the world.
In this workshop, you'll get clear on what a life purpose actually is and why knowing yours is crucial to your overall health and well-being. You'll learn how to know when your purpose is calling you and what to do about it, plus you'll learn 3 ways to tap into your purpose so you can begin living the purposeful, passionate, vibrant life you were destined to live.

What is Qigong Movement? It is something ANYONE can do. It is based in healing...both preventative and curative. It looks a lot like Tai Chi (based in martial arts). I've worked with folks who are wanting a healthier, less stressful lifestyle, to those recovering from surgery, trauma, even Olympic athletes! ANYONE can participate in Qigong. If you have questions, email Judy Thurman, Master of Medical/Clinical Qigong and Certified Sound Therapy Practitioner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
