Mindful Eating for a Healthier You
July 14th, 2020
1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Instructor: Lynn Sickles

writing classes

Eating is so much more than satisfying our hunger. Food nourishes the body, the mind and the spirit. Do you take the time to savor, smell, touch and be grateful for the food you eat? Mindful eating is about slowing down, paying attention and using the senses to develop a positive and enjoyable relationship with food. In this workshop we will explore our own habits around eating and nourishment and discuss some important techniques about how we eat that can contribute to our own health and wellness. Bring a journal or notebook and a favorite pen.

Lynn is a certified life coach and a holistic health and wellness coach as well as an experienced journal writer and workshop facilitator. She strongly believes in self-care techniques as key ingredients on our path to overall wellness and to living a healthy, happy, peaceful and balanced life. She regularly presents workshops at Wiawaka, been a presenter at area employee wellness programs, is on the faculty at Saratoga Continuing Education and has had a monthly journal writing circle in the Glens Falls/Saratoga area.

Writing with Bernice Mennis
July 15th,2020
2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We all have a deep well within us: memories, experiences, insights,
observations, words said and unsaid.  The poet William Stafford says
that if we follow the threads of our minds and hearts gently, they will
lead us to the “holyland.”  In this workshop we will create a space to
follow those threads, conscious and less conscious, and see where we
are led.

Use the power of journal writing to discover your true self and deepest desires. Writing down your thoughts, ideas, emotions, memories and the details of your day to day life can:

  • Bring Clarity to your Life
  • Empower you to identify areas of your life that you would like to change
  • Put you in touch with your deepest self

During this workshop I will discuss the many benefits of journal writing, a variety of journaling techniques and provide writing prompts and ideas that will assist you on your journey of self-discovery. We will spend our time together writing from a variety of prompts. Some are thought-provoking and others are just plain fun. Beginning and experienced journal writers welcome. Bring a notebook or journal and a favorite pen.
