Exploring Spirituality for Mental Health Wellness


with Catherine Duclos

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 13, 2023 at 6 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Have you ever thought or felt that there is a deeper experience of living that inspires your life? Have you ever struggled with a non-specific craving for most of your life? It is a pervasive aspect of human experience, and it has been misread, misdiagnosed, misunderstood, and acted upon in mistaken ways, some of them deadly. The only way we successfully satisfy this elemental craving for wholeness is through an ongoing relationship with a vast inner spiritual source. In this class, we can explore each of our own connections with this inner spiritual source and discuss how it can play a central role in finding peace, strength and a true perseverance in facing the challenges that we do on a daily basis. We will examine writings from world spiritual traditions from the mystic branches of each religion and then come to craft our own personal statement of belief as well as developing daily practices to live an embodied personal spiritual truth and understanding.

Moving Through Life with Ease


with Judy Pagon

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 14, 2023 at 9:30 am, runs for 4 weeks

I regained the joy and comfort in playing my viola that I had lost during my conservatory training, and was able to resume my musical career. Learning the Alexander Technique changed my life. Over time, I also learned to incorporate the technique into every aspect of my life: walking, sitting at the computer, exercise, etc. When I realized how much it was helping me, I trained to become a teacher so I could share with others the benefits of this technique. The Alexander Technique would be helpful for anyone who struggles with discomfort, tension or fatigue as they move through their daily life. Learning the technique allows people to learn to do the things they already do, more easily and with less tension and effort.
