Be the Difference, Save A Life
(Tue. 11 Apr, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death.  However, what is predictable is preventable.

You can be the difference.  Save a Life, Sue Mackey Andrews, and Maine Resiliency Building Network can help.

Please join us for a free screening of the documentary, RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE. This one-hour film chronicles the birth of a new movement among pediatricians, therapists, educators and communities, who are using cutting-edge brain science to disrupt cycles of violence, addiction and disease.

Sue Mackey Andrews will lead a discussion following the film.  Light refreshments will be provided.

The Postcard View" A talk by Penobscot Marine Museum's Photo Archivist
(Wed. 26 Apr, 2017 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm)

Kevin Johnson, photo archivist for the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine will present Brooksville Maine: The Postcard View; Selections from the Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Company”. The slide show and talk will consist of a short film about the postcard company as well as the historical views of Brooksville and surrounding towns.

The Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Company was founded in 1909 in Belfast, Maine by Rudolph Herman Cassens. Cassens’ goal was to photograph small towns and rural areas from Maine to California, producing “real photo” postcards that would be valued for promoting tourism. Cassens did not fulfill his dream of photographing the entire country, but his company did produce over 50,000 glass plate negatives of New England and Upstate New York between 1909 and 1947. The collection is full of historic businesses, family homes and local landmarks.

The images are fascinating on many levels. They take viewers back in time to when the roads were still dirt, horse drawn carriages outnumbered cars, coastlines were undeveloped, and elms lined the streets. The collection is now part of the archives of the Penobscot Marine Museum and continues to grow as more negatives that "escaped" from the collection are located and acquired.The collection is being digitized and more than 90,0000 thousand images can now be viewed on the museum's website in their online database. www.PenobscotMarineMuseum.org

This event is free and open to everyone. Join us to help celebrate Brooksville's bicentennial anniversary!

"Ikebana: the Art of Flowers" workshop
(Sun. 30 Apr, 2017 9:00 am - 4:00 pm)

, Rockland Shambhala will host Ikebana: the Art of Flowers, a special daylong workshop with Shastri Ellen Rook. The workshop, which is limited to 10 participants, is open to the public by donation.

Japanese flower arranging, also called Ikebana, can be practiced as a contemplative art. Under the guidance of Shastri Ellen Rook, participants will learn to create flower arrangements and experience Ikebana as a creative and meditative dance with nature, space, and perception. Like meditation, Ikebana teaches us to really look at and work with what is before us. To close out the day, the community is invited at 3 p.m. for a public talk on contemplative arts and Ikebana, as well as a flower show.

Shastri Ellen Rook encountered the Shambhala Buddhist teachings in upstate New York in 1980. She has studied with both Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. For many years, Shastri Rook served as Director of the Shambhala Meditation Center of Albany. She was appointed by Sakyong Mipham to the position of Shastri, or senior teacher, in 2012. Shastri Rook was recently authorized as a teacher in the Sogetsu Ikebana tradition.

The suggested donation for the day is $95-$115, which includes the costs of flowers. The program is offered by Rockland Shambhala, under the auspices of the Brunswick-Portland Shambhala Center. To register, contact Rachel at [email protected] or 207-594-1694.
