    Who were the Goddesses? What are Zephyrs and Flora? Where is Epping Forest? How do you dance The Queen’s Jig? Come to the Womanspace English Country Dancing classes this summer to ponder the answers to these questions and have fun at the same time! No prior dance experience needed—you just have to be able to walk, skip, and follow directions. Wear soft-soled shoes and comfortable clothes. 

    Note: Words in italics are all names of English country dances. Immigrants to the New World brought these dances to America, along with their Scottish, Irish, and Welsh counterparts, where they developed over time into modern-day Appalachian square and New England contra dancing.

    Women growing older contend with ageism, misogyny, and loss.  And yet a recent survey shows many older women to be engaged, happy and grateful for their lives.  From personal experience, experiences of friends, clients and readings, I will share the choices , attitudes and tools  that can help  cultivate resilience to the developmental challenges we all face as we age.  We cannot make this transition with out-dated versions of ourselves.  Let us embrace this age and be the Women of Wisdom we are meant to be.

    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance.  The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.  Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome.  Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs.  Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine.  Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.

    Have you ever experienced something you just can't explain and haven't been able to talk about it? Do you get feelings that you know something is going to happen? Do you think you see something and then it isn't there? Have you been somewhere and suddenly feel your hair raising on your arms, or feel a cold chill run through your body? Do you have pictures or video of unexplained objects or balls of light? In this group we will share our experiences, pictures, videos, and stories we have with the unknown in a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgemental environment. 
    Members of the group may choose to go on field trips and learn how to use different equipment to gain better insight on what we are experiencing.

    A Gentleman in Moscow: A Novel by Amor Towles

    A transporting novel about a man who is ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. In 1922, Count Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, never having worked a day in his

    life, must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel’s door. Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery. Full of humor, the novel relates the count’s endeavor to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of purpose.

    Bladder leakage is NOT normal and should never be accepted as a NORMAL part of aging or as a natural consequence to giving birth. Yet, statistics show that 1 in 4 women over the age of 18 will develop a pelvic floor muscle dysfunction (PFMD) at some point in their lives.  Education is the key to prevention. Empowering yourself toward learning crucial selfcare tips now can help you reduce or eliminate any symptoms you might notice today. PFMD symptoms can include bladder leakage, urgency/frequency, organ prolapse/pelvic pressure, constipation, painful intercourse, and more.  We will learn what the pelvic floor is, how it affects, and is affected by, everything in your life. In this class you will learn 3 habits that could not only make the difference in taking back bladder control but improving your bowel and sexual health.

    From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Revolutionary Approach to Growing Older by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
    More than two decades ago, Rabbi Zalman Schachter- Shalomi felt an uneasiness. He was growing older, and fears about death and infirmity were haunting him. So he decided to embark on a mission to get to the bottom of his fears. Through a series of events that included a vision quest in a secluded cabin and studying with Sufi masters, Buddhist teachers, and Native-American shamans, Reb Zalman found a way to turn aging into the most meaningful and joyous time in his life. Here he shows readers how to create an aging process for themselves that is full of adventure, passion, mystery, and fulfillment, rather than anxiety.

    Facilitator: Jean Kathryn Carlson, Vibrant Living Alchemist

    Bette Davis once said “Getting old ain't for sissies.” Most of our beliefs about aging come directly from the culture we were born into. Although these beliefs are treated as truths and largely go unchallenged, many are not biologically based. Only 35% of our health issues can be directly linked to our genetic background. Our thoughts and feelings about aging hold more sway over our health than genetics! The good news is that it’s just as possible to declare that we are "youthing" as it is to say we are "aging".  Through EFT,or tapping, we can tap out unhealthy beliefs about our bodies and begin to tap in new beliefs that support greater health and vitality, no matter how old we are. Bring your beliefs and skepticism and together we'll tap into a new reality.

    Dr. Christiana Northrup: “We underplay the ability to change the body under different belief systems. We need to understand how utterly powerful our minds are.”

    Jean Kathryn Carlson, M.A., Master Alchemist, speaker and author, considers it a gift to be alive at this time when we get to challenge traditional beliefs and consciously choose what we hold dear. She intuitively weaves dream interpretation, EFT,  Law of Attraction and essential oils to welcome the magic in life that is available to each of us. Jean Kathryn is a certified Dream Group Facilitator, certified ProEFT Coach, and Law of Attraction Life Coach.

    Facilitator: Marge Blake

    Have you ever experienced something you just can't explain and haven't been able to talk about it? Do you get feelings that you know something is going to happen? Do you think you see something and then it isn't there? Have you been somewhere and suddenly feel your hair raising on your arms, or feel a cold chill run through your body? Do you have pictures or video of unexplained objects or balls of light? In this group we will share our experiences, pictures, videos, and stories we have with the unknown in a safe, nurturing, and nonjudgemental environment. 
    Members of the group may choose to go on field trips and learn how to use different equipment to gain better insight on what we are experiencing.

    Who were the Goddesses? What are Zephyrs and Flora? Where is Epping Forest? How do you dance The Queen’s Jig? Come to the Womanspace English Country Dancing classes this summer to ponder the answers to these questions and have fun at the same time! No prior dance experience needed—you just have to be able to walk, skip, and follow directions. Wear soft-soled shoes and comfortable clothes. 

    Note: Words in italics are all names of English country dances. Immigrants to the New World brought these dances to America, along with their Scottish, Irish, and Welsh counterparts, where they developed over time into modern-day Appalachian square and New England contra dancing.

    "A dream not interpreted is like an unread letter." The Talmud

    Every night dreams visit us bearing gifts wrapped up in special imagery and language. Your dreams are inviting you to tune into their messages. Dream circles empower you to translate your dream symbols into gold nuggets of meaning. At the end of the evening you leave with wisdom from the dream world that will open up new ways of seeing and being. Even the smallest seemingly insignificant dream can carry great meaning when opened with curiosity. Bring a dream. Bring your sense of playful adventure and curiosity. Be a part of the Womanspace Dream Circle .

    Jean Kathryn Carlson, M.A., Dream Alchemist, speaker and author, intuitively combines the language of dreams, tapping, essential oils and Law of Attraction to create magical shifts in consciousness. Jean Kathryn is a certified Dream Group Facilitator, certified ProEFT Coach, and Law of Attraction Life Coach.
