Virtual Book Nook - Session II

$54

with Shila Cook

Calendar Apr 13, 2021 at 6:30 pm

Come join me, Shila Cook, for Gorham Adult Education’s virtual book club! This ten week book club will read three texts and meet four times. The first time we ‘meet’ we will be getting to know each other, discussing our opinions of the chosen books at first glance, and going over how the other meetings will go. What better way to enjoy the kind of easy connection that only books can create, then from the virtual comfort of our own homes? The cost of the course includes the first read that will be shipped to you the first week of the club. Now to answer the big question: what are we going to be reading? That is up to the club! Once you register you will receive an email from me asking you to pick your top 5 choices, and we will be reading the three that get the most votes! Good books discussed with friends; what could be better?

Session II: 4 classes - Tuesdays, 4/13, 5/4, 5/25 and 6/15, 6:30pm - 7:30pm, virtual, $54 (includes 1st book)

How Plants Speak to Us

$48

with Amy Witt

Calendar May 17, 2021 at 6:30 pm

Plants teach us how to live successfully on the earth. When you are out in nature, your energy resonates with the trees, flowers and other plants that have specific messages for you. The messages you receive can help you solve problems, be more creative, develop a deeper connection to your inner self and the natural world around you. Are you ready to learn how to receive your messages? All you need is an open mind.
