What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. There are likely thousands of qigong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”).

Instructor: Jeff Cote. Cost: $5.00 per session. Just drop in.

TALES FROM THE HOME OF THE WORLD’S WORST WEATHER

Bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow, and record winds: Mount Washington is known worldwide for its unpredictable and dangerous weather. For a mountain its size, why is Mt. Washington called the “Home of the World’s Worst Weather”?

Join Mount Washington Observatory's Will Broussard for an investigation into the unique life and work of weather observers stationed at the observatory year-round.

We will explore how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about New England’s own weather patterns. This program will include interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, stunning photography, and video footage from the summit. This exciting program is appropriate for adults and children alike.

 

Image may contain: cloud, sky, outdoor and nature

An infamous place of extremes, 6,288-foot Mount Washington, New Hampshire has been captivating audiences for hundreds of years.

While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously-staffed scientific outpost on this remote peak since 1932, providing the Observatory many remarkable stories and an intimate knowledge of the mountain.

Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between. They have survived a 231mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have worked with scientists and celebrities, students and snow rangers. They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the "Home of the World's Worst Weather."

This Event is brought to you by the TPL Endowment and The Amanda Dwight Entertainment Fund

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Got Vinyl?

 Bring in your own stack of vinyl records and share your favorites with other music enthusiasts.  If you can’t bring your own, check out the collection at the Townsend Public Library.  No matter what your taste in music, members of the Townsend Library 33 1/3 Club are enamored to spin and listen to those old familiar tunes to the most esoteric melodies.

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Rutherford B. Hayes by Hans L. Trefousse

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Laugh it Up with Laughter Yoga!

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We don’t laugh because we’re happy; we’re happy because we laugh!”

You don't need stretchy pants, yoga mats, or even a sense of humor!!!

  • You can laugh with special guided techniques: It’s easy. Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humor, jokes or comedy and one can feel the benefits on the very first session!
  • Real and Contagious Laughter: We initiate laughter as a body exercise in a group and with eye contact and childlike playfulness. It soon turns into real and contagious laughter.
  • Oxygenates Your Body and Brain: Laughter Yoga is combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and laughter exercises, which oxygenates our body and brain, makes us feel more healthy and energetic.

The group is led by Coach Allison, a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, who will guide you through a variety of laughter exercises & deep breathing techniques to deliver more oxygen to the brain and body making one feel more energetic and healthy!

An engaging experience that will leave you with a smile and an extra pep in your step!

Join the FREE fun & come have a laugh with us!

“We don’t laugh because we’re happy; we’re happy because we laugh!”

You don't need stretchy pants, yoga mats, or even a sense of humor!!!

  • Real and Contagious Laughter: We initiate laughter as a body exercise in a group and with eye contact and childlike playfulness. It soon turns into real and contagious laughter.
  • Oxygenates Your Body and Brain: Laughter Yoga is combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and laughter exercises, which oxygenates our body and brain, makes us feel more healthy and energetic.

The group is led by Coach Allison, a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, who will guide you through a variety of laughter exercises & deep breathing techniques to deliver more oxygen to the brain and body making one feel more energetic and healthy!

An engaging experience that will leave you with a smile and an extra pep in your step!
