Call & Purpose: An evening for discerment

Facilitated by Colleen Sharka.

Description
To discover a calling in which we find meaning requires that we explore a spiritual life that connects us to ourselves, the other, and the unknown. Our purpose or vocation exists within, and not without, us. There is no right profession, relationship, or institution that will lead us to our purpose. The greater our ability to be present to ourselves, connecting with God/Source/Higher Power, the more we will attune with our purpose. Whether you are new to Still Harbor or have attended a previous discernment workshop or retreat, we invite you to an evening in which we will further explore the spirituality of purpose and why it is so important that we attend to the yearning within to our lifes vocation.

Cost

Purpose in Vulnerability & Courage

Facilitated by Colleen Sharka.

Description
Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.

Brene Brown

The capacity to live out ones purpose is present when we respond to others out of our whole being rather than parts of ourselves, such as our professional self. Our lived-out purpose coexists with authenticity and wholeness. Alignment with our purpose entails the ability to listen profoundly to and connect with others as well as our deepest sense of self. Whether you are new to Still Harbor or have attended a previous Purpose Workshop, we invite you to an evening in which we will further explore how to live a more integrated life, attuned with authenticity and vulnerability, as we strive to meet the joys and challenges of manifesting our purpose in the world.

Grafting Techniques for Ornamental Trees
Grafting Techniques for Ornamental Trees--Jack Alexander, Plant Propagator, Arnold Arboretum. 1 Session: Saturday, February 7, 9:00am 4:00pm. Location: Dana Greenhouse. Grafting is the technique of joining parts of plants in such a manner that they unite and continue their growth as one plant. It is a practical propagation method for the hobbyist, since it does not require special conditions or equipment. You will learn methods of grafting and practice making graft unions, both deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs. The plants may include two- or five-needled pines and crabapples. (Simple aftercare will be required until planting out in late spring.) If you own pruning shears or a grafting knife, bring them to class. You must sign an assumption-of-risk-and-release form in order to practice the techniques taught in class. Fee $90 member, $120 nonmember. See the website to register online.

When: Feb 7, 2015 9 AM in Boston, Massachusetts
Cost: $120 (Sat, 07 Feb 2015 09 )

First Company Governor's Foot Guard Athletic Association Dog Shows and Obedience Trials
The First Company Governors Foot Guard Athletic Association will sponsor their annual Dog Show and Obedience Trials in February. This will be the 86th and 87th editions of this event. The Foot Guard will be sponsoring two shows; one on February 7 and one on February 8. These are separate shows with different judging and different winners each day. These are AKC sanctioned shows where the dogs will compete for championship points. Saturdays show is an All Breed and Junior Showmanship (AB/JSHW) event and Sunday will be All breed, Obedience and Junior Showmanship (AB/O/JSHW). Additionally, there will be puppy judging both days. Approximately 1000 dogs representing over 140 different breeds from as far away as Texas, Minnesota and California as well as Canada are expected to compete for championship points in each show. This is a great family event for everyone from serious dog enthusiasts, people who want to learn more about dog shows or particular dogs breed to people who just love dogs. Visitors to the show not only get to watch the competition but they can go backstage to meet the dogs and their owners/handlers. In the obedience trials, well have some amazing dogs that will awe you as they perform their exercises. Judging begins every day at approximately 9:00 AM but come early to see and hear the Governor's Foot Guard opening ceremonies. There will also be some vendors with unique dog products at the show. Some of the proceeds of the show are used to fund scholarships awarded each year to two pre-veterinary students at the University of Connecticut.

Each reading is followed by a Q&A, along with light refreshments.
