With the spring solstice within our reach, it’s a good time to start to think about your spring clean, summer plans and to think about how you’ll carry your new year’s resolutions or goals into the spring season. With a new season, comes its own stress and challenges.
This March, we have two adult programs that can help introduce mindfulness to you.
On Tuesday, March 6 from 7 to 8:30 PM our ADULTING 101 SERIES begins with LEARN TO SURF THE WAVES OF LIFE- MINDFULNESS, BALANCE AND YOU. Stress, anxiety, strong emotions? Overwhelmed by life? Join Lisa Rigau MS, BSN, RN, qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction teacher through UMASS Medical School in an interactive workshop discussing and practicing mindfulness, the science of meditation, stress physiology, and resilience. Learn to surf the waves of life with practical mindfulness exercises to make a part of your daily life for peace, balance and wellbeing. Reawaken to a joyful life!!
Join us Saturday, March 24 from 9:30 to 11:30 AM for SHARED MINDFULNESS WITH YOUR DOG: THE HEALING POWER OF CONNECTION. This talk presents a new paradigm for living with and relating to dogs based on the healing power of connection and mindfulness. It brings us back to a time when we saw dogs as partners, equals and friends. Drawing from the ideas of trans-species psychology, cultural/relational theory, attachment theory, humanistic psychology, interpersonal neurobiology, and Buddhist psychology, it will show attendees how they can enjoy a relationship with their dog that is richer than they can imagine. Learn the basics of mindfulness and how to apply that to day-to-day life with your dog to achieve a deeply connected, stress-free and empowering friendship.
Please register for these programs at the library or call (570) 587-3440 to register.
We hope to see you at one of these events or several others happening in the month of March.
