PRACTICE SESSION-- Friday, December 19th        10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS A PRACTICE SESSION – AND A GREAT REFRESHER

1 HOUR CLASS - $5.00

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY (2014)

Starring Helen Mirren, Manish Dayal, and Om Puri

When Hassan's family is forced to move from their native India, his Papa relocates to a peaceful hamlet in Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Determined to give his new neighbors a little taste of home, Papa decides to open an Indian restaurant in the village, and names it Maison Mumbai. Meanwhile, across the street at the traditional French restaurant Le Saule Pleureu, uptight proprietor Madame Mallory doesn't exactly welcome the competition. When Madame Mallory ignites a bitter feud that quickly escalates, the only hope for a peaceful resolution lies in Hassan's talent for French haute cuisine, and his growing affections for Mme. Mallory's pretty young sous chef Marguerite....

Lasse Hallström directs a film produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Juliet Blake.

Our January Bookclub title is
THE MUSEUM OF EXTRAORDINARY THINGS, by Alice Hoffman

From the beloved, bestselling author of The Dovekeepers, a mesmerizing new novel about the electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first decades of the twentieth century.

Coney Island: Coralie Sardie is the daughter of the sinister impresario behind The Museum of Extraordinary Things, a boardwalk freak show that thrills the masses. An exceptional swimmer, Coralie appears as the Mermaid in her father’s “museum,” alongside performers like the Wolfman, the Butterfly Girl, and a one-hundred-year-old turtle. One night Coralie stumbles upon a striking young man photographing moonlit trees in the woods off the Hudson River.

The dashing photographer is Eddie Cohen, a Russian immigrant who has run away from his father’s Lower East Side Orthodox community and his job as an apprentice tailor. When Eddie photographs the devastation on the streets of New York following the infamous Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, he becomes embroiled in the suspicious mystery behind a young woman’s disappearance.

With its colorful crowds of heiresses, thugs, and idealists, New York itself becomes a riveting character as Hoffman weaves her trademark magic, romance, and masterful storytelling to unite Coralie and Eddie in a sizzling and tender story of young love in tumultuous times. The Museum of Extraordinary Things is Hoffman at her most spellbinding.

Please stop by the Library to pick up a copy of the book before the meeting date, or if you need assistance placing a hold for the title. No registration is required.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

Plot:

Fritz Lang directed this gritty drama of gangland murder and police corruption. Dave Bannion (Glenn Ford) is a scrupulously honest police detective who learns that one of his fellow officers has committed suicide. The cop's mistress claims that he left behind a suicide note detailing a complex trail of corruption in the department, leading to a local mob boss Mike Lagana (Alexander Scourby). When Bannion threatens to expose Lagana's dealings, the gangster orders Bannion killed. But the car bomb meant to finish Bannion off instead kills his wife, Bannion follows the case alone, determined to get revenge.... Lee Marvin and Gloria Grahame shine in key supporting roles.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

Stella Batts

 

Stella BattsStella Batts is a 3rd grader who loves to write about herself, her family and her friends. In fact, you could say she writes her own series of books.

In None of Your Beeswax Stella learns about keeping secrets. What really happened to her little sister’s pet fish? What is the secret school project she is working on with her friend Lucy?

In Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow, Stella’s father, who owns a candy store, asks Stella to taste test a new kind of gum called Magical Glow-in-the-Dark chewing gum. Stella can’t wait to try it out, but thinks it brings her bad luck!

Read any or all of the books in the Stella Batts series by Courtney Sheinmel and illustrated by Jennifer A. Bell and come to the Roslyn Library on Monday, February 2, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to discuss the books and do some craft projects. 
For ages 6-9.

Registration begins Jan. 12. 
Call the Roslyn Library at 215-886-9818 or e-mail cfrankford@mclinc.org.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

Tai Chi is an ancient practice originating from Chinese Martial Arts and Traditional Chinese Medicine. "The science of Tai Chi is just now catching up with and susbstantiating what Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries: Tai Chi often leads to more vigor and energy, greater flexibility, balance and mobility, and an improved sense of well-being." (from the Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi)

In this 8-week session, we will learn a new program of Yang Style Tai Chi Basics and continue to practice forms we have already learned. Our class includes Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up, and a cool down. We include a rich mixture of therapeutic components and we will learn the traditional principles of Tai Chi. The primary goal is for each participant to have a meaningful experience.

Tai Chi is simple but not easy. It is gentle, but can be challenging. Our class is very relaxed and easy to follow. Learning a new program is a great opportunity for beginners.

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

The Harriet Tubman Living History Experience

 

Millicent Sparks - The Harriet Tubman Experience

Thursday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. 
Community Room, Abington Free Library

Family program geared for ages 8 and up 

The most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman helped thousands of enslaved Africans to escape to freedom. Her life story is a monument to courage and fearless resolve. This living history performance depicts this 19th century icon by blending accounts of Tubman’s life with an acute sense of Tubman’s personal qualities—her emotional depth, profound spirituality and immense intelligence. Included are Negro spirituals sung by Tubman, often as coded messages designed to facilitate the guiding of her fugitives northward. At the conclusion of the portrayal, actor Millicent Sparks interacts with the audience, responding in character to questions about Tubman’s life in slavery, the Underground Railroad and the Civil War.

 

Millicent Sparks is an accomplished actor/writer/producer who has performed on local, regional and international stages (Asia, Africa and Europe) and in film and on television. Sparks was one of ten performers chosen to represent the United States at an International Arts Festival in Tanjian, China. She also was selected as the first actor to perform the “Freedom Rising” show at the National Constitution Center. Sparks, a lifelong history buff, develops and produces researched living history performance programs with special emphasis on the African American experience through her production company Millicent Sparks Productions, Inc. Sparks regularly portrays Harriet Tubman, as well as other historical figures, for school groups, community organizations, churches and special events.

Registration begins Jan. 29. Please register online, in the Library Office, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, or email kburnham@mclinc.org.

 

Pennsylvania Humanities Council logoThis presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Pennsylvania Humanities Council, a nonprofit organization, inspires individuals to enjoy and share a life of learning.
