Is it possible to restore life balance over lunch? We’d like to think that such mindful changes can happen in small moments, so why not at lunch? Simple, rejuvenating practices will be shared and discussed with ample opportunity to practice.
Facilitated by Seton Cove staff and facilitator community, these mind/body/spirit practices can help us all restore that much needed life balance.
Tuesday Luncheons this Quarter:
3/16 - Poem's Corner with Ginny Agnew
2021 has swept in like a hurricane. Perhaps it needs a little gentling. Like a bird that has gentled enough to sit on a human hand or a horse to take a rider; 2021 just needs a bit of poetry to ready it for us and we for it.
3/23 - A Deep Dive into the Ayurvedic Doshas with Neelam Misra
The Ayurvedic doshas are forces which oversee physiology. There are three main doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. You may have heard of the doshas and their impact on our health, but did you know that the doshas have far reaching effects on time, cellular biology, seasons, even the hours of the day?
In this talk/class we will explore the Ayurvedic doshas, their characteristics, and their effects on our psychology and physiology. We will examine the five element theory and how it relates to the doshas. We will also see how the doshas exert their influence on time, seasons, and the hours of the day. We will learn to work with the doshas and bring them into balance.
3/30 - “I Could Not See to See”: The Natural World as Revelation with A.R. Rodgers
In this workshop, we will look to poets Emily Dickinson and Joy Harjo in order to determine how they have allowed the natural world to act as a point of revelation. Whether positioning the natural world as a point of praise or a space for doubt, we will seek to understand the poem’s architecture in order to create our own poems that feature the natural world as a tool for discovery.
The price of Tuesday Luncheons have adjusted to $10. Due to the adjusting environment, we've had to make some adjustments, too. Thank you for your support!
