Beginner Mindfulness Meditation


with Deborah Gilmour

Calendar Mar 13, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Mindfulness is intentionally paying attention with non-judging awareness and a centering in the present moment. Mindfulness practices help keep the mind calm and focused, and avoid being stressed, distracted and scattered. Learn various mindfulness meditations through guided breath, body scan, mindful eating, and loving kindness meditations. Easy to learn body scanning increases awareness of body and mind. Loving kindness meditations teach compassion to self and others. Learn to mobilize inner resources for coping, growing, healing, and approaching life. Deborah holds a BA in psychology with courses in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and a certification in quantum healing hypnosis.

Wild Seed Project: Gardening/Landscaping with Native Shade Plants, Beauties from Maine's Woodland Under Story


with Heather McCargo, BA, MA

Calendar Apr 10, 2019 at 6:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Rethink what to plant in those shady areas! Many gardeners interested in native species are unsure what to plant in the shady spots of their yard. In this presentation, Heather looks to Maine’s natural woodlands for garden design inspiration, then showcases the many beautiful woody and herbaceous natives that thrive in the shade. Learn to transform your conventional garden and suburban landscape - and support ecosystem health, wild plant reproduction, pollinators and wildlife - by incorporating native Maine shade plants. Time for Q & A. Partial proceeds benefit The Wild Seed Project. Heather is founder and Executive Director of The Wild Seed Project; an educator with 30 years of expertise in plant propagation, ecological design and conservation; was head plant propagator at the New England Wildflower Society’s Garden in the Woods; has lectured nationally; and is widely published.
