Waimea Monthly Book Club will meet March 21 from 5:30-7 p.m. The book that will be discussed is “Cannery Row” by John Steinbeck.

This page-turning new novel is driven by inner monologues and centers on the health of both the environment and the modern family. Participants are responsible for obtaining their own copy of each month’s book. Feel free to bring a pupu to share.

Quantum Chi Gung Mirror Calls will meet from 3:30-5 p.m. on March 23, with Dr. Angela Longo, acupuncturist and Quantum Life coach. Participants will learn how using simple breath and movement can open awareness to the connection with energy and “informotion” of the universe. Using gentle, dance-like ways with fluid arm motions in the shape of the infinity sign (a lazy 8), the group will energize the five elements linked with the breath. Angela will explain how seeing every moment as a “mirror-call” (miracle) inspired Einstein, who said, “There are only two ways to live: first, that nothing is a miracle, or the second, that everything is a miracle!”
How to Train Your Dragon Brain will be at 3:30 p.m. on March 29 with JoAnna Wyss, LCSW. How does our brain’s ancient hard wiring work in today’s world? Not so well. Learn and practice a simple, relaxing, two-minute activity designed to train the brain’s response to stress and challenges. Decrease anxiety without drugs or alcohol, and shift brain chemistry at will. Approach problems or challenges with whole brain capacities, not fight or flight. For new and returning attendees, this program will be a review and expansion of our previous workshops.
