    Contact: West lawn-Wyomissing Hills Library   610-678-4888   wlwhl@berks.lib.pa.us
   

 This one hour exploration of labyrinth history and its heath benefits is hosted by Carmel Stabley a Veriditas Certified Labyrinth Facilitator. Trained in Chartres France, the home of the well known medieval style labyrinth imbedded in the floor of the Chartres Cathedral, Carmel has been walking labyrinths since 2010 and has since enjoyed sharing the practice with others.
 From 5000 BC to the 21st century the labyrinth has been used by people from many cultures as a means of connecting to their inner self. This archetype for the journey of life with all its twist and turns connects the mind, body, and heart in a purposeful rhythmic walk that induces rest and reflection often resulting in clarity and reduced stress.
 How and why remains part mystery and part experiential evidence.
As a sequel to the talk an actual labyrinth walk date will be scheduled for those who want the experience to unfold for themselves.
STAY TUNED FOR THE WALK DATE.

The Clumsy Dragon by Kirk Smith and Lauren Collier Swindler

August 7th 6:30PM

A magical, musical, interactive play for family audiences. It is the story of a young wizard (he is only 73 at the start of the show) named Alzabar and a clumsy dragon named Mirabelle, who must overcome a number of challenges in their budding friendship. Along the way they receive dubious assistance from a pompous Narrator who plays several supporting roles. The play touches on themes of loyalty, self-image and acceptance, and includes several whimsical song-and-dance numbers. Performed by members of the Teen Theater Ensemble of the Yocum Institute for Arts Education. PLEASE REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT. 610.929.0589 #SocialLiteracy
