Movie: The Wife

After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950. THE WIFE interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later--a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.

Starring: Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce
Release Year: 2018
Rating: R (for language and some sexual content)
Running Time: 100 Minutes

Meditation for Everyone - Wait list only

Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.” – Deepak Chopra

Start the New Year with a calming meditation practice. Learn the power that your mind has over your body and bring peace through a mind-body connection. Understand the science behind meditation and relax through guided sessions. Each class will also focus on healthy and practical habits including breathing exercises, techniques to quiet distractions, and creating a routine and space.
