HERONS AND EGRETS & THE PLUME WARS
Presented by: Alice Newlon
Florida was ground zero for the Plume Wars. You will meet characters you know … Marie Antoinette and John James Audubon. You will meet some you do not know, like Guy Bradley, the first environmental martyr, and Boston socialite Harriet Hemingway-no one has used tea more effectively since the Boston Tea Party. They weave a fascinating story of the collision of birds, fashion, economics, and politics, which nearly brought many of Florida’s birds to extinction. You will get to know our herons and egrets too, in detail. After the presentation, there will be an optional walk in Perico Park.
Wednesday, Oct. 18: 1-2:30 p.m.
Partnership with Kadampa Meditation Center Florida
Finding Clarity of Mind
Buddha taught that the true nature of our mind is calm, clear, and positive. Meditations on the mind’s pure nature helps us to relax more deeply and tap into our spiritual potential. With practice we gain can insight into the flexible and limitless nature of our own mind. This meditation class series, led by Kelsang Tharlam, will be based from Geshe Kelsang Gyatso’s recent book ‘The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra’. Drop-ins are welcome and you can attend classes any time during this series.

Line dancing is exactly that: A group of lines that do a set number of moves to all four walls of a room. Some of the dances only require two walls. The dances usually range from 16 counts to 64 counts of movements. This is a fun genre of dance. It is easy for most to pick up quickly. Come and give it a try!!
