NaNoWriMo Support and Writing Event

Come to the public library to find out about NaNoWriMo! All writers, students, and the curious are welcome—not just novelists! Dr. Kaiya Ansorge and Rachelle Langdon will give a brief introduction to NaNoWriMo, help you set up your account, and brainstorm about what you would like to write or accomplish during the challenge. Kaiya will also discuss alternative ways of participating, including nonfiction, poetry, game-writing, revision opitions, and more (officially welcomed as “rebel” participants), before leading a Writing Meditation to get us started on the process.

New Year's Chakra Meditation

Come join us for a New Year's Chakra Meditation.  During the meditation, we will delve into the chakras in order to discover what intentions and resolutions will be the most healing.  By inviting the chakras to guide our intentions, we will be able to transform seemingly difficult resolutions into a luxurious process.  Because we will ground our intentions in what gives us joy (and even pleasure), they will become easy to maintain.  Dr. Kaiya Ansorge will provide a short introduction to chakra meditation and then lead us through the guided meditation.  At the end of the meditation, we will have time for discussion and questions.  Please wear comfortable clothing.
