Did you ever wonder what happens to Maine’s wildlife in winter? Nicolaus Lunn, staff naturalist for Maine Audubon, will explain the mystery of wildlife winter survival mechanisms and share some compelling stories on Monday, October 21, from 3:00 – 4:00pm.
On Thursday, October 3, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, Steve Raymond will continue his talks on preventing cognitive decline and maintaining optimal brain health. This presentation is an introduction to the practice of Mindfulness, which goes beyond meditation to the cultivation of a moment-to-moment awareness with a non-judgmental attitude. Hospital based programs have sprung up around the country teaching mindfulness practices as a treatment for depression and stress reduction, and promoting a daily sense of well-being, healthy aging and optimal brain health. Participants will learn about mindfulness practices through discussion and a guided meditation. Raymond is a longtime practitioner of mindfulness methods.
Join us for a box lunch. Please RSVP for this free event to Steve Raymond at 563-3350, or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Lincoln Home is located at 22 River Road, Newcastle.
