Your Voice: Public Speaking for Kids

Time:  5:00-7:00pm
Who:   Grades 2-5
Fee:     $140 (4 Wks)
Location: Brick Building, 97 School Street
Instructor: Right Brain Curriculum

Famously, Americans’ number one fear is public speaking while death only ranks number two. If that’s so, this profound fear probably starts at an early age. In our Public Speaking class, we take the fear out of speaking before an audience by getting kids talking in front of a supportive group about things in which they are interested. They write speeches on subjects of their choice and practice delivering them to the assembled students. As the kids practice in this low-pressure environment, they learn skills like standing up tall, using a loud voice and making eye contact. We also watch speeches of public figures and critique what is successful and unsuccessful in their speeches and hold fun and engaging debates in which students are asked to take a position on given issues such as “Should school have homework?” and “What time should kids go to bed?” If the class is successful, our students won’t list public speaking as their #1 fear when they grow up.

In addition to reducing stress, enhancing relationships, increasing productivity, improving sleep and yes, increasing happiness, new research states that Meditation actually reverses at a cellular level stress-related changes in genes linked to poor health, aging, and depression. Likewise, learning to trust your intuition and use it effectively is essential to making spectacular decisions that enhance your life. In this fun and supportive circle, we practice both!  In this series of UPLIFTING classes, we remind our body how to heal and calm itself, which is the most powerful medicine there is! The class will be part meditation, part energy medicine, and part  intuition development. By connecting with your higher self during meditation, you become naturally attuned to your inner knowing, or "intuition". We will practice different methods to enhance our intuition. No special attire or equipment is needed. All levels of experience are warmly welcomed. If you already meditate, joining a supportive meditation circle is very powerful and will enhance your practice. Join us!

In essence, sound can reset the body back to it's factory settings!  This introduction will cover the powerful effects of Music, Toning, Tibetan Singing Bowls, and Tuning Forks. You will learn elegant and efficient ways to heal your own body: spiritually, mentally, and physically. Level One Trained In Biofield Tuning, Julie will demonstrate ways to induce the meditative state, reduce pain, increase calm, and treat a host of other issues.

If you recall the winter of 2015, it was a bad one for ice dams and the problems associated with them.

Don’t throw insulation at an air-sealing problem. In this seminar, we will discuss air sealing and insulation and how to safely reduce your home’s energy use and lower your energy costs, reduce your carbon footprint and increase comfort. Methods and materials for reducing heat loss through floors, walls and ceilings will be discussed, as well as strategies for determining air infiltration through the home’s thermal envelope (What’s that? We’ll define that too!)
