Wednesdays' Wisdom

Irene-Buchine.jpg

Irene Appleaum Buchine

Talks about her new book on childhood depression

“Celia and the Little Boy”

A story of two children trapped in the darkness.

And what it took from them to find their way out.

 

Wednesday Wisdom’s Pot Luck on:

Oct 10th, 5:30 PM

Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden

236 Hopkinton Road, Concord, NH

Free and Open to the public

 

A conversation, a shared experience that includes dialogue, questions and perhaps ever some answers. This interactive program will include a short reading of the book to serve as the starting point for this important conversation. The book gives hope to children in depression and serves as a gateway to the critical conversation with parents, siblings, grandparents, teachers, caregivers and anyone who knows or loves a child suffering, to connect with that child and to find hope.

 

Wednesday’s Wisdom Pot Luck is brought to you by the Mill Brook Gallery & Sculpture Garden and the Kimball Jenkins School of Art on the second Wednesday of each month.

Wednesdays' Wisdom - “Earth Connection - Self Reflection”

KathyPetreLookingNethercoteCropped

Speaker - Kathy Lowe

Location - Mill Brook Gallery and Sculpture Garden

Topic:

I am a NH native, born into A Vaudeville/Circus family.
How I live my life today is inspired by a wild theatrical family up-bringing, songwriter Uncle Tom, three singing sisters,
and a deep desire to weave all these influences together with NH’s pristine natural environment, and come out the other side with creations from my heart,
for my self expression as well as healing intention towards others.
 
In following the muses of nature’s path, this talk will include my local history, my original songs of nature, my “Petreflection Photography”
(reflections of earth in water), and a group experience of resonance and vibration for healing.
