  • Aug/Tue/2020 7:00 PM - Aug/Tue/2020 8:00 PM

    Presented by Dr. Somesh N. Kaushik
    Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Physician

    Tuesday, August 4
    7:00-8:00 pm

    Registration is required. You can reserve a space for Anxiety and Depression: Cultivating a Chemistry of Joy by registering below or email Donald at adult@pawlinglibrary.org. 

    In Ayurveda, balancing the three body types – pitta, vata, kapha – results in an outlook on life in which one feels in harmony with the universe. Imbalance allows disharmony to take hold and feelings of depression, anxiety, fear, and despair can result. These feelings and emotions resulting from the imbalance can, in turn, affect the chemistry of the body and create a vicious cycle of physical, mental, and emotional pain. Ayurveda has natural methods to restore the balance of body, mind, and spirit, and stop the painful cycle.

    Come and discover:

    • Which body types are prone to depression, anxiety, anger
    • The link between toxins, diet, lifestyle, and depression/anxiety
    • How supplements can work with – or against – your body type 
    • Foods that can effect – and change - your brain chemistry

    Life is an adventure! You never know where it will take you. Nancy Chiarello has worked in many arenas, from corporate to jewelry sales to becoming a licensed massage therapist. Then - much to her surprise - at the tender age of 70, she began writing poetry…and at 71 started her own podcast!

    Come hear Nancy tell her story and read from her collection, Soul Writing, including poems like “Finding Your Path,” “The Table”, “Feet”, and the uplifting “The Red Boa” - in which she encourages us to don that iconic scarf and become in our imaginations whoever we want to be. 

    Listen through your poetic souls, and most importantly, your sense of lightness and fun. 

    You can listen to Nancy’s poetry on her Soundcloud podcast. To do so, just click on the link below.
