Small Things in Life Group

Tue., May 7, 1-3 p.m., Prog. Bldg. Meets the first Tuesday through June. Questions? Contact Ann King. Back by popular demand! Small Things in Life is a group that shares interest in health, food, gardening, downsizing (practical and emotional aspects), natural cleaning supplies, environmental friendliness, living simply – to name a few! Come once, twice or to all our meetings. We exchange information and experience, investigate questions and have lots of fun!

Needlework Group

Tue., May 7, 7:30-9 p.m., Prog. Bldg. Meets the first Tuesday from 7:30-9 p.m. and the third Thursday from 2:30-4 p.m. Contact Mary Paxton. No registration required; just show up. This group welcomes all parties interested in schmoozing over needlework or other portable projects. There is no formal instructor, but participants assist each other (including beginners) in mastering new techniques and planning future projects, while they get to know each other better. To accommodate all who may be interested, those available meet twice a month, once during the day and once in the evening.

Living Consciously

Mon., May 27 and Jun. 10, 7:30-9 p.m., Prog. Bldg. No registration required; just show up. Led by Zim Putney. Eckhart Tolle says we are only truly alive in this moment. In this class we strive to be more present and self-aware now, following the voice of our deepest inner resources: our intelligence, emotions, feelings and values. We apply the wisdom of Jack Kornfield’s book “The Wise Heart,” as well as teachings of Tara Brach and others. We practice mindfulness in each meeting through reading (mind), movement (body) and meditation (spirit) and the shared wisdom of others in the class.

Poetry Club

Sun., May 12, 4-6 p.m., Prog. Bldg. Meets the second Sunday of the month, unless otherwise noted. Contact Barb Dutchak. This open, drop-in group meets monthly for fellowship and conversation as we explore the meaning and artistry of poetry we share from our personal, wide-ranging reading. We value the depth and dimension that fine poetry brings to our lives. Though participants may occasionally share a personal work, this is not a writing workshop.
