    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 15-minute TED TALKS video, entitled Why people believe they can't draw with Graham Shaw.

    Following the viewing, we’ll open up a group discussion led by Courtney Puckett.

    NOTE: Participants should have sheets of paper and a marker or pencil for this program.

    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 contexts. The opinions expressed by the video presenter, conversation facilitator, and program participants are welcomed for the purpose of fostering discussion and reflection, but are not intended to represent the views of the Pawling Free Library.

    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.

    Both western and Ayurvedic medicine agree that there are things you can do to keep your heart healthy – and stabilize blood pressure. Ayurveda, however, views the role of the heart somewhat differently than its western counterpart. In Ayurveda, the heart is the energetic center of the body, effecting – and effected by – the cells and tissues of every other organ. They are inseparable. The Ayurvedic philosophy of body, mind, spirit, is no more critical to any organ than to the heart, as it influences the whole.


    Come and discover:

    • Heart issues for the different doshas (body constitutions)
    • How stress and inflammation affect your heart and other organs
    • The connection between digestion and heart health
    • Foods, herbs, and supplements that benefit the heart and blood pressure
    • What happens when you are “heartsick”
    • Why a detox program benefits the heart and organs
    • How an “attitude of gratitude” can be key to heart & body health
