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 How we can protect truth in the age of misinformation, with Professor Sinan Aral.

Following the viewing, we’ll open up a group discussion led by Edward J. Grippe Ph. D.

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.

    Each of us has a wealth of memories.

    The goal of this once a month program is writing your life stories.

    At every gathering each person has 10 minutes to share a story with our group members in a very supportive environment. No one’s work and writing skills are ever critiqued. Your unique style of writing is the right way to write.

    Please join us every month. Relive your memories that will one day become your memoir.

    Surprise your family who’ve wanted you to do this. The biggest surprise you’ll find is recalling the stories of your life.

    We look forward to seeing you.
