*POSTPONED* - Dance in the Sun Vision Board Workshop
Saturday February 4 10 am-4 pm
Start the new year by defining clear and meaningful goals! Keep your goals in front of you by creating a vision board with pictures and words that illustrate what you want to achieve. A vision board is a way to sell your own ideas to yourself, to anchor to your dreams and to allow the magic of manifestation to work in your life. Join us to focus on your authentic life, your core clarity. Let go of what’s in the way – clearly connect with your dreams while designing a vision that calls to you and will attract your ideal outcomes.
Facilitated by Monique Moliere Piper, M.A., a speaker, bestselling author and certified professional coach. She has coached women for over 7 years.
Isle of Women Series: Learn Loving Foot Care
Tuesday February 7 6-8:30 pm
Pamper yourself with a natural, easy-to-do foot spa routine. Join this class of our “Isle of Women” series, modeled on a mythic place where women nourished the healthy feminine, caring for bodies, hearts and souls. We will create and experience an herbal soak, make our own all-natural foot butter and use it to give ourselves a basic foot massage. Because our feet are a source of alignment and stability in our lives, treating them with mindfulness centers us. Bring the spa home - you will receive a soaking basin, massage butter, recipes and instructions. Please bring a clean 2-4 ounce sized jar with lid, a hand towel, and clean feet.

Book Study: Being Mortal
Thursdays February 9-23 6-7:30 pm
Being Mortal provides a very humane discussion of a subject many of us know we need to attend to and yet avoid: the realities of physical decline and mortality. In this New York Times best-seller, Dr. Atul Gawande draws from his personal and professional experience to describe the advances made by medical science in prolonging human life—and the limitations of medical science in caring for those at the end of life. Dr. Gawande describes the contemporary American scene in elder care with its pitfalls and possibilities, pointing always to how we might provide care in which the elderly maintain a sense of autonomy, dignity and purpose. Please read the Introduction, Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 before the first class.
Facilitated by Ann Trousdale, author of Cotton Patch Rebel and a deacon in the Methodist Church.

*POSTPONED* - A Gift of Love: Have I Got a Story for You…
Gifting Your Family with Stories of the Past
Sunday February 12 2-5 pm
Don’t allow your family’s history to be lost. It's easy enough to document your family today with smart phones and social media – but how do you capture stories and memories from previous generations? One of the best gifts you can give your family is a sense of their history. We will use various prompts and exercises to begin writing the stories of our family’s past: stories that are funny, inspiring, dramatic or poignant. Create a concrete gift that can be handed down through generations. All writing levels welcome.
Facilitated by Robin Palmer Blanche, author, screenwriter, mother of two under two.
