Some of our most basic human needs are to be seen, heard, and understood. However, many times judgment and criticism, power struggles, hurt feelings, and more leave relationships strained and impaired. More than ever we need the skills to find a way to share the deep, honest connection that we crave.

Most people prepare financially for retirement but overlook the emotional work necessary to thrive as they age. One thing we know we can count on is CHANGE! Learn to tap into yourself in ways you may not have known were there in order to embrace your mature years with optimism.

Join us for an evening of board games! This is an intergenerational event. We have games for all levels, from more serious long ones to social games to cooperative ones. Bring a snack (no alcohol please) to share. Kids can join in the games - we will not have separate childcare. If there's a particular game you want to ask about or make sure we have on hand that evening, let us know!

Focus is on flexibility, strength, balance, and relaxation while learning to adapt poses for YOUR body. Movements are gentle and slow-paced, but not always easy. Taught by certified instructors.

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 email@example.com.
Tuesdays at 6:15 p.m.
Join us for a gentle, stretchy class designed to relax your muscles and calm your mind. This is a free class (donations accepted), and mats are provided.
