Join us for Part 2 of the "Moving Into Mindfulness Series" as you continue to learn how to connect more deeply with self and others this holiday season and into the New Year.

Childcare will be provided.

Tia Fagan, Marca Hughes, and Angele Mlsna, of the Wisconsin Eudaimonia Center, will help you find a better balance between the areas in your life that seem to pull you in different directions by accessing body, mind, and spirit through yoga, teachings, and art. Learn tools to find peace in the chaos through mindfulness, create space in your schedule, and how to make time for yourself in a busy family.

January's book group is our annual "book potluck." You don't bring food, but you bring a book recommendation or two or three! (You don't need a physical copy of the book - just the title and author.) This is a lovely way to get a list of books you might want to read through 2019.

With Folklorist Jim Leary and guest musician

***JUST ANNOUNCED-- Jim Leary received a 2019 Grammy Nomination for the notes on this CD! ***

In 1920, Ferdinand Ingold, a Swiss settler in Monroe, WI, launched one of the first American record labels established by an immigrant for his own community. Though nearly lost, the songs the Helvetia label produced were recently located and remastered in the album Alpine Dreaming. This recording recalls a bygone era and resonates with those who seek New World lives while remembering their homelands. Folklorist Jim Leary brings this music and its importance to light.
