Branching Out… Autumn Newsletter Expansion (Sept 2015)

September 16, 2015



So many of us just muddle through day to day & week to week and continue in the same old ruts… I wanted to give some fresh ideas of things that you may like to try and even some upcoming events to open up your experiences and broaden the Joy!

Things To Try:

  • Float Annapolis– This intriguing therapy consists of a sensory deprivation salt water tank in which you may find total tranquility. If you have trouble quieting your mind & just want to try a total immersion method, this may be right for you. Some even consider it helpful for those suffering from PTSD and minor aches & pains. I personally love the stillness and deep silence. Only caution would be if you have issues with claustrophobia, you may want to visit and take a look first. They also offer saunas and infrared saunas. (For more info on Sensory Deprivation and it’s benefits, here’s a link to a Discover Magazine article that goes into more detail.)
  • Coursera– Coursera provides universal access to the world’s best education, partnering with top universities and organizations to offer courses online- FREE. (You can choose to pay a fee if you want credentials, but just to learn doesn’t cost anything!) Check out the site for available courses- I’m taking a Philosophy and the Sciences course later this month! All kinds of topics are available- computer courses, religion, business and SO much more!
  • Sign up to Mentor/Tutor local underpriveledged children with Creating Communities– This local non-profit has a fabulous goal: Designing and implementing art, music and creativity programs to build expression, personal growth and life skills. In a sad time when lots of public schools have lost funding for arts, this group is helping to fill the gap. You can sign up to read to, help with homework or just to be there for kids in need on a Tuesday afternoon. They also have Arts Wednesdays. What a lovely concept! As the saying goes, It takes a village community…

Upcoming Events:

  • Fit n Fabulous Fair – Come out to the Annapolis Harbour Center on September 26th from 11-4 to try out all kinds of demos and talk to vendors from local companies to learn some ways to stay Fit…and Fabulous! I’ll be doing Reflexology & chair massage- Come out and try a session and receive a free gift!! I know there will be yoga demos and I think some sort of martial arts!
  • Annapolis Fringe Festival! – starts at 7pm September 26th and goes through Midnight- check out the website for some amazing performances and intriguing art- Free Your Mind and have some Fun!!
  • Creating Abundance: A Journey from Great Fullness to Soul Fullness– This is a FaceBook link, so if you are not on Facebook, I’m including a flier here:  PDFCelebrating Abundance Retreat Flyer October 17    Just as the name says, this is a beautiful way to focus on the Abundance of Life — joy, gratitude abundance, harmony, relaxation, release and peace.
