Sound Healing and Mindfulness (Virtual)
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Sound Healing and Mindfulness

Energize yourself for the rest of the week with this session on Sound Healing and Mindfulness, with Nyell Jeudy of Nyell's Mindfulness Services.

Please register below with your email address, and we will send you the Zoom link!

Using crystal singing bowls, Nyell will guide us through the different frequencies and their benefits, and mindfulness techniques.

How sound healing works: As you strike the bowl or rub the rim with a mallet, the friction that results is what creates the vibrations. We can both hear, and feel, these vibrations. Singing bowls can produce different frequencies, with benefits such as: 

  • Effectively reduce stress and anxiety
  • Relieve physical pain
  • Improve mental and emotional clarity
  • Cleanse and balance chakra
  • Stimulate the immune system
  • Help meditation
  • Improve sleep
  • Relieve anxiety and stress

(VIRTUAL) Rock, Stone, Boulder, and Wall: the Earthly Heritage of the Fitchburg Area
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Rock, Stone, Boulder, & WallJoin us for this fascinating virtual discussion on the history of stone walls in our area, as well as the Rollstone Boulder. Please register to receive the Zoom link!
When he agreed to speak on stone walls for this Freedom's Way event in Fitchburg, Professor Thorson casually asked the public services librarian about the glacial erratic he'd seen in downtown Fitchburg. The more he learned about the curious case of "Rollstone Boulder," the more he wanted to share what it means for the interested audience. Hence, his talk will divide between a general discussion of New England's stone walls and a celebration and lament regarding Fitchburg's unique case of a boulder that Humpty Dumpty could understand.

About the speaker: Robert M. Thorson. Midwestern native turned Northwestern geologist turned Northeastern academic. Professor of Geosciences and Head (interim) of the Department of Geosciences at the University of Connecticut. An expert on New England's glacial landscape, fieldstone walls, and the historic landscape of Henry D. Thoreau.

Part of the Freedom's Way Hidden Treasures Festival of Nature, Culture & History. http://www.discoverhiddentreasures.org/
