FORMING FRESH MEANINGS: Focusing on Aging*
with Kelley Bothe, LICSW & Hadley Fisk, LICSW
Saturday, November 22, 2-4pm ~ Living is always a fresh process/formation, it is forming itself freshly, nothing is fixed ~ Eugene Gendlin. Moving into aging is rarely a chosen or graceful moment. In addition to our own fears and concerns, we are often confronted with the aging of our loved ones, challenging our relationships and need for continuity and predictability. In this workshop we will explore this theme through focusing exercises and group discussions. Opportunities to share our stories and family legacies will allow for deeper meanings to emerge. Whatever your age, we invite you to expand your relationship to aging. $25 preregistered, $30 at the door

Special Extended Class! RESTORATIVE YOGA with David Schouela
Sunday, November 30, 4-6:30pm
Join yoga & meditation teacher David Schouela for a special extended restorative yoga class. Restorative yoga allows the nervous system to quiet and return to a balanced state, quieting the mind. At the same time the body gently stretches and opens, releasing chronic patterns of tension. As attention focuses on each breath, Restorative Yoga also cultivates the qualities of mindfulness and presence. Read more in David's recent article. $25 or class card + $10
