Every ancient culture has creation myths which involve animals and half human/half animal creatures which may be helpful beings or fearsome guardians of some treasure, such as the Dragon. The elements of life on Earth are intertwined with ourselves and the beasts of the land, sea, river and air. In other words, we are one with nature. In this workshop we will work with Animal Spirits of both the natural realm and the mythical realm as they relate to where we are working energetically, in the deep reservoir of the Chakras or energy centers of the human body.

Nadiya will guide you through a Shamanic Journey to converse with your Spirit Animal and she will help you relate your own experience to what you may need to heal in your life, set foot on a new path or transform what may need to be “composted” from the mud to the garden of your life.

About our presenter: Nadiya Nottingham is a certified Medical Qigong Practitioner by Robert Peng and a Qigong teacher by Masters Liu Dong and Liu He of the Linggui School in Portland, OR. Nadiya’s deep heart teachings spring from her own struggles as a young woman. She has overcome addiction, survived an attempt on her own life at age 15, and at age 62 she has many authentic, tried and true life teachings to share with deep love.

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

    Getting to the root cause of a disorder is the tenant of Ayurveda. With skin disorders the main causes are diet and lifestyle – the effect of which an individual may be unaware. Nutrition and habits that aggravate the basic nature of an individual cause imbalances that contaminate body tissues and can manifest as skin disruptions. Knowing your basic constitution (dosha), and how to maintain balance, is key to avoiding, and reversing, skin disorders.

     

    Come and discover:

    • The body type that is most prone to skin disorders 
    • How seasonal changes affect the body constitution and promote skin disorders
    • Diet and lifestyle changes that maintain balance and reverse skin disorders
    • Treatments, and home remedies, for the root cause of skin disorders

    The Pawling Library is Celebrating its Centennial.

    For this program we are not only commemorating our library’s anniversary but bringing  people together through their passion for great literary works. 

    We have selected four classic novels, one for each season, that were popular in the 1920s when our library first came into being. 

    Our presenter, Stephanie Rogers, will be reading an excerpt  from each novel and then lead a Q & A for our audience. Stephanie Rogers is the author of The Horse I Belong To: How a Misused and Almost Forgotten Grade Mare Showed Me the Way. 

    The Pawling Library is proud to be partnering with our neighbors Pawling Recreation, the Book Cove and the Pawling Resource Center. 

    To participate in this program, order a copy of A Passage to India through our library. You can also support our partner, the Book Cove, by purchasing this classic novel from our favorite book store. A Passage to India was written by E. M. Forster and published in 1924. 

    Thank you for growing with us throughout the years.
