Come meet Marjatta and take a journey with mindfulness practice!
Marjatta will happily offer you guidance, teaching, and mentoring on your path, based on your unique goals and needs.

 'As much as mindfulness is about mind, it is about heart.  We can learn to allow ourselves to be receptive, open and accepting.  When the heart is open, we can truly be here for ourselves and others.'

Robert Bly:  A Thousand Years of Joy

A Thousand Years of Joy charts Robert Bly’s singular path from farmer’s son on a wintry Minnesota farm to radical anti-Vietnam War activist to wild man of the 1990s' men’s movement.

This legacy film by Hayden Reiss is about this great Minnesota poet whose passion, politics, ecstatic spiritualism, earthiness and image-filled yet plainspoken language have influenced countless writers.  Reiss has also created a beautiful film, a visual poem to and about Bly, dusted with snow, filled with poetry, stories, and music.

Light refreshments will be served.

Boston Children's Museum

The idea for a children’s museum in Boston developed in 1909 when several local science teachers founded the Science Teacher’s Bureau.  One of the Bureau’s main goals was to create a museum 'local in its nature and to contain, besides the natural objects, books, pictures, charts, lantern slides, etc., whatever else is helpful in the science work of the Grammar, High and Normal Schools. The specimens are to be attractively arranged and classified and the room open daily to children or anyone interested in such work.'
