Story Time at CPL

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

Documentary "Suicide-the Ripple Effect at SC

Wednesday, September 25

5:30-8:30pm

1958 Room, Sterling College

Come at 5:30 for pizza and snacks

Film starts at 6pm, Discussion follows

Sponsored by NEKHS & Craftsbury Mental Health Resource Group

Documentary: "SUICIDE - THE RIPPLE EFFECT"

“Suicide: The Ripple Effect” is a feature length documentary film and MOVEMENT, focusing on the devastating effects of suicide and the tremendous positive ripple effects of advocacy, inspiration and hope that are helping millions heal & stay alive. Seen by over 500,000 people already, across 7 countries, this film is having a global impact.

The film highlights the journey of Kevin Hines, who at age 19, attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Today Kevin is a world-renowned mental health advocate, motivational speaker and author who travels the globe spreading a message of hope, recovery and wellness. 

The film chronicles Kevin’s personal journey and the ripple effect it has on those who have been impacted by his suicide attempt and his life's work since.  In addition, the film highlights the stories of individuals and families who are utilizing their personal tragedy to bring hope and healing to others.

For more information, visit www.suicidetherippleeffect.com

WHY THIS STORY

Suicide is an epidemic that takes over 800,000 lives globally every year. In the United States alone there are one million suicide attempts and over 40,000 deaths by suicide every year. Our United States Military is devastatingly impacted with 22 Veterans dying everyday by suicide, and that is an understatement.

Research has shown that for every one suicide death, over 115 people are directly, and secondarily  effected and the financial cost of suicide in the US is estimated to be over 40 billion dollars annually. Suicide is global public health crisis that is not receiving the attention it deserves and therefore millions continue to die and the ripple effects of these deaths continue to devastate parents, children, families, friends and communities.

This film will shine light on the reality of this ongoing crisis and highlight effective efforts that are helping people stay well and alive. This film is uniting and igniting change that will have a tremendous positive impact on reducing the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world. It is not just a film; it is a movement.

There have been other films about suicide but most have been very sombre. This film will take a very hopeful, intriguing, and yet entertainment-focused approach by highlighting the work being done by individuals who have been directly impacted by suicide. Work that raises eyebrows, and pushes people toward giving back to their communities.

In addition, this will be the first full length feature documentary film focused on Kevin’s story, which is very dramatic and miraculous.

Kundalini Yoga Series at WW

whetstonewellness2018_0034.jpg

In this 7-week series, students learn the fundamentals of Kundalini yoga, known as the Yoga of Awareness. In this class you will discover how to direct your attention, to tune into the subtle energetic aspects of your being, and to respond rather than react when confronted with challenges. Kundalini yoga is a technology that combines breath (pranayam), hand position (mudra), eye-focus (drishte), chanting (mantra), body locks (bhandas), and postures (asana) to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, expand lung capacity, and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind, and soul.

Kundalini Yoga was brought to the West from India by Yogi Bhajan in the late 1960’s. Because it works quickly and powerfully, the practice quickly caught on. Kundalini Yoga is a yoga for householders, for people who have to cope with the daily challenges and stresses of holding jobs, raising families, and managing businesses. It is a path for everyone who wants the skills to cope successfully with the challenges of our times.

Meditation is a key aspect of this practice. Meditation in Kundalini Yoga contains specific practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra, and focus. The range and variety of meditation techniques in Kundalini Yoga is vast. There are meditations that reduce stress, work on addictions, increase vitality, and deconstruct the subconscious emotional and mental patterns that are held in the body and the mind, and that prevent us from fully embodying a larger way of being in our lives.

Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age, flexibility, body shape or size, or other factors. Modifications are offered for many poses. If you can’t sit on the floor, there are chairs available for you to use. With a regular Kundalini Yoga practice, you will build your strength quickly, but in the meantime, take breaks as needed during the exercises.

Mansukh Kaur has been practicing yoga for over 30 years. In 2009 she took her first Kundalini Yoga workshop and fell in love with this style of yoga. She is now certified as a Kundalini yoga teacher. "Because of my yoga practice, I feel increased wellbeing, vitality, and happiness.  I want to share this incredible technology with others. Vitality and health is your birthright. Kundalini makes you radiant, peaceful and strong so you are able to meet life’s challenges."

Worship at ECPC

  • East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church (map)

Our commitment is to provide meaningful worship of God, through prayer, strong preaching, study of the Bible and especially through music.  Meaningful worship is an aspect of ECPC held dear by members, some of which have been with us since birth and also one that has drawn new members to ECPC from afar.  We follow a traditional order of worship and generally follow the revised common lectionary for Scripture reading. (A schedule that brings us in contact with all parts of the Scriptures every three years.)

Our service has three main sections: Gathering: which includes praise and confession, which sensitized us to our need for God's love and help.  In the second section we hear the Word through Scripture, and a sermon.  The third section is where we respond to the Word by sharing our joys, concerns, prayers for the world and those around us and offering our gifts to God.  Hymns are sung at the opening of the service, after the sermons and at the closing of the service.  Music is organ and occasionally piano.  Our choir sings an Anthem that ties into the theme of the day.

Meditation in Kundalini Yoga contains specific practical tools that carefully and precisely support the mind and guide the body through the use of breath, mantra, mudra, and focus. The range and variety of meditation techniques in Kundalini Yoga is vast. There are meditations that reduce stress, work on addictions, increase vitality, and deconstruct the subconscious emotional and mental patterns that are held in the body and the mind, and that prevent us from fully embodying a larger way of being in our lives.

Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by everyone, regardless of age, flexibility, body shape or size, or other factors. Modifications are offered for many poses. If you can’t sit on the floor, there are chairs available for you to use. With a regular Kundalini Yoga practice, you will build your strength quickly, but in the meantime, take breaks as needed during the exercises.

Mansukh Kaur has been practicing yoga for over 30 years. In 2009 she took her first Kundalini Yoga workshop and fell in love with this style of yoga. She is now certified as a Kundalini yoga teacher. "Because of my yoga practice, I feel increased wellbeing, vitality, and happiness.  I want to share this incredible technology with others. Vitality and health is your birthright. Kundalini makes you radiant, peaceful and strong so you are able to meet life’s challenges."

Story Time at CPL

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

Al-Anon at UCC

The Al-Anon Family Groups are a fellowship of relatives and friends of
alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in order to solve
their common problems. We believe alcoholism is a family illness and that
changed attitudes can aid recovery.

Al-Anon is not allied with any sect, denomination, political entity, organization,
or institution; does not engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor
opposes any cause. There are no dues for membership. Al-Anon is self-supporting
through its own voluntary contributions.
