Monday, September 12
Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.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 13-minute TED TALKS video, entitled How menopause affects the brain, with Neuroscientist Lisa Mosconi.
Following the viewing, we’ll open up a group discussion led by Gabrielle Semel.
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. https://pawlingyogawellness.org
About our presenter: Gabrielle Semel is passionate about building community around wellness-based practices. Her thirst for knowledge is never quenched, and her devotion to having real conversations about the human experience leads her with curiosity into everyday interaction. As an avid student and teacher of Yoga and Ayurveda, Gabrielle is grateful to be doing what she feels to be her "life's work." It fosters her desire to engage with others in a meaningful way, which requires the willingness to be in the realm of intimacy, and a commitment to stay grounded in humility.
