Would you like to reduce your stress, improve your mood, focus your mind, and enrich your life? Consider Tai Chi.
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that today is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner. Tai Chi can improve your balance, flexibility and may assist you to manage a chronic condition. You’ll build confidence, be inspired, and have fun.
Class size is limited to 10. Advanced payment ($130 online) secures your spot. This is a beginner-friendly class that can be performed standing or seated; no experience necessary.

Book Club: Think Like A Monk
By Jay Shetty
Wednesday, Sept 28th
11:45am - 12:45pm
Bring a lunch and come prepared to discuss our next book. All are invited.
Description: Shetty grew up in a family where you could become one of three things—a doctor, a lawyer, or a failure. His family was convinced he had chosen option three: instead of attending his college graduation ceremony, he headed to India to become a monk, to meditate every day for four to eight hours, and devote his life to helping others. After three years, one of his teachers told him that he would have more impact on the world if he left the monk’s path to share his experience and wisdom with others. This book shares what he learned.
Here's a passage:
“As a monk, I learned early on that our values are influenced by whatever absorbs our minds. We are not our minds, but the mind is the vehicle by which we decide what is important in our hearts. The movies we watch, the music we hear, the books we read, the TV shows we binge, the people we follow online and offline. What’s on your news feed is feeding your mind. The more we are absorbed in celebrity gossip, images of success, violent video games, and troubling news, the more our values are tainted with envy, judgment, competition, and discontent.”
