    Please join us for a stress relieving hour of gentle exercise and relaxation.

    COME TOGETHER PAWLING: Viewing of TED TALK video Your Elusive Creative Genius & discussion  / Online Program

    Monday, November 1
    7-8 pm

    Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at adult@pawlinglibrary.org. 

    Each month, in a respectful and open environment, we’ll explore a new topic led by a different community leader.

    At the start of the program, we’ll be watching a 20-minute TED TALKS video, entitled Your Elusive Creative Genius by Elizabeth Gilbert.

    Following the viewing, we’ll open up a group discussion led by Diane Ingram.

    Our wellness as individuals and as a community depends on continued sharing, support and conversation in times of celebration as well as in times of conflict.

    Come Together and join us in fostering deeper conversations, listening to disparate experiences and points of view in the realm of challenging context such as racism, sexism, bipartisanship, whiteness and social justice.

    We understand that these conversations could be difficult to have, and believe that by coming together to find the willingness to listen and learn, we can aspire to create a stronger Pawling, where ALL community members feel safe, welcome and represented.  

    This program is being provided through a partnership with the  Pawling Library and Pawling Yoga & Wellness.
