Living With Intention, March 10 (Zoom)

Wednesday March 10, 4:30-5:30PM via Zoom

Often confused, intentional living is different from setting goals.  Intentions prioritize our emotions and how we want to show up in the world daily.  They are the commitments that empower us to remain in the present moment, foster better relationships, and live with emotional balance.  Intentional living is what John Maxwell described as “living your best story.”  

Join Mellow Mainer Meditation for a virtual workshop on how living intentionally can create greater joy.   Each participant will receive a handout to use to start their journey towards living with intention.

To register for this workshop, which will be presented via Zoom, contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4, or email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org.  

Slow Flow Yoga, April 6-May 11

Take some time to slow down and dive deeper into the poses, while gaining strength, flexibility, and core balance.  Use the power of your breath to slowly move through your practice with intention and introspection in this vinyasa style class.  This is a moderately challenging class where pose variations will be offered to help everyone find their unique level of success.  Have a yoga mat, a yoga block or two, and wear comfortable clothes that will allow you to move well.  Take some time for yourself to move and breathe with grace, poise, and ease.

Learn more about our instructor, Rachel Legendre, at www.InnerLightYogaOfMaine.com.

This class will take place virtually via Zoom.  To register or if you have any questions, contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4, or email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org.  Be sure to give your email address when registering; you will be sent a link to the class prior to the first class for which you are registered.

LAST WEEK! Winter reading challenge

Library Clue

January 4-February 26

Like any good mystery, the board game Clue relies on the detective determining the suspect, murder weapon and location of the crime. For our winter reading challenge, collect “clues” by reading books that relate to the characters, weapons and settings listed below.  At the end, we will randomly draw a suspect, murder weapon and location for our “crime”. If you’ve read a book related to all three, you will win a fabulous prize! The more “clues” you collect, the greater the chance of finding the correct ones.

Ask us for a brochure to log your reading (we can add it to your curbside order or mail it to you) or join online at our Beanstack site (auburnpubliclibrary.beanstack.org)
