Kundalini Art and Mandala Making Art Workshop (Lori):

Sunday, February 1, 2015, from 11: 30 AM – 1:30 PM

The world needs our creativity, compassion and intuitive intelligence. The synthesis of Yoga and Art is a very powerful practice.  Through yoga, one becomes grounded in one’s body and along with meditation the internal mind chatter diminishes. In this workshop, the yoga portion will include the Kriya for Creativity, then a meditation, followed by an exploration with mandalas. Beautiful line drawings of mandalas will be supplied along with colored pencils to facilitate the process. After experiencing Yoga-Art, people shift from feeling restless to a deep sense of meaning as they create. It is not what you make but how you feel during and after the process. The Art that is made becomes a marker and a talisman of the experience.

Price: $40 per person including the materials fees and delicious, homemade snacks.

 Mariana by Susanna Kearsley  – 352 pages

 From the winner of the Catherine Cookson Fiction Prize, this mesmerizing, suspenseful, and richly atmospheric tale of time travel draws us into the heart of a heroine we won’t soon forget…

The first time Julia Beckett saw Greywethers she was only five, but she knew that it was her house. And now that she’s at last become its owner, she suspects that she was drawn there for a reason.  As if Greywethers were a portal between worlds, she finds herself transported into seventeenth-century England, becoming Mariana, a young woman struggling against danger and treachery, and battling a forbidden love.  Each time Julia travels back, she becomes more enthralled with the past…until she realizes Mariana’s life is threatening to eclipse her own, and she must find a way to lay the past to rest or lose the chance for happiness in her own time.

 Next Meeting Date:                         Friday,   February 27, 2015, 7 PM – 8:30 PM

 Beginner Yoga Classes Bellmore

By Jojo Moyes

 

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.  What Lou doesn’t know is she’s about to lose her job or that knowing what’s coming is what keeps her sane.  Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he’s going to put a stop to that. What Will doesn’t know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of color. And neither of them knows they’re going to change the other for all time.
