Herscovitch, Lara Workshop - Waging Love: Finding & Amplifying Your Voice for a Better World Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Other
(Women Waging Love: same workshop with female-only participants) The many challenges of our world can feel overwhelming. Every one of us has knowledge and skills that can help build healthier communities, but we don’t always know where to start or how to plug in. This engaging, interactive workshop is like a visit to an artistic and inspiring civic engagement coach. It is designed for people who want to build a personal road map in a safe, respectful space with some guidance and in connection with others. Through individual writing and reflection, compelling exercises, group discussion, and live and recorded music, we will cover: individual values, priorities and hopes; debunking the myths of a perfect solution and single charismatic leader; accepting, carrying and passing on a torch; letting one’s heart lead (not one’s ego); allowing for the messiness of collaboration; appreciating common threads as well as differences; and specific strategies and places to wage love in the civic arena. Step in, step up: we are the leaders we’ve been waiting for.

Do you want to dream of the life you want or do you want to live the life of your dreams? Do you frequently fantasize about the life you always wanted but never seem to enjoy? Does “the grass look greener on the other side”? Do you often wonder “what if this, or that, had happened”? Do you question “why, or why not, me”? We are, for the most part, conductors of our own life’s symphony, choreographers of our own life’s dance, authors of our own life’s story line. During this seminar, motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan provides insight on how to begin living a fulfilled life by incorporating awareness, acknowledgment and action into our daily lives.

Laura Ingalls Day is a compilation of programs normally taught in a 1 hour block, designed for a kickoff or finale to summer reading, or an event that will bring in patrons during the winter. Starting with sugaring off, we will make sugar on snow, then move onto fresh butter, cheese, and sourdough bread. Next we will plant a garden on the library grounds or start transplants for growing on the windowsill. We can wash up with home made old fashioned lye soap, and hand dip candles. Wrap it all up by meeting farm animals and learning to care for them just like Laura and Mary. Based on book: Little House in the Big Woods, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this program can incorporate reading the book and eating between stations. The program can last 4-8 hours, depending on age group and individual or combinations of stations.
