    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 20-minute TED TALKS video, entitled The Power of Vulnerability, with Dr. Brené Brown.

    Following the viewing, we’ll open up a group discussion led by Jackie Muller.

    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. https://pawlingyogawellness.org

    Yin Restorative Yoga is a gentle practice.

    The poses are held longer than hatha yoga (1 minute to 3-4 minutes) and mostly performed close to the floor. There are few standing postures.

    This form of yoga is known for calming and balancing the mind, body and internal organs, increasing circulation, and improving flexibility and joint mobility.

    Yin Restorative Yoga encourages the use of props. For class make sure you have a strap (belt or scarf will do), yoga block (or book), eye pillow, and pillows, rolled up towels etc. for various areas of support.

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

    Each session ends with a guided meditation.

     

    Program fee: $4.00, per class.

    Note: We ask that you pay in advance for a full month of yoga classes.

    For December:

    One month of Yin Restorative Yoga: $16.00.

    You can make a non-refundable payment each month using our library’s PayPal account, by check or money order.

    The book club will be discussing Like Water for Chocolate, by Laura Esquivel.

    Are you interested in reading and discussing novels, plays, and poems by women? Then this is your Book Club! This is a fun opportunity to indulge in some great works by women writers.

    We will begin each discussion with a little background history and tidbits on each female writer. I’ll ask a few questions to get us started and then it’s an open forum. My hope is that together we gain a little more insight into these books (and perhaps the authors as well).

    Some of these books you may know well. Some may be books you always meant to read and never got around to! It does not matter how expert you are with the works or the authors. If you are passionate about discussing books and would like to build up your repertoire of works by women, this might be the perfect place to start. To quote Mary Shelley: “The beginning is always today.”
