Meditation increases focus and mindfulness through different techniques that help participants experience a calm and peaceful state. This virtual class will begin with muscle relaxation using guided meditation, breath and imagery, and will also include time for Q&A at the end of class.
“This is the class that I look most forward to each week. Joan asks the class members to journal their personal experiences
with each class. It's a great way to recall how the class made you feel, and how it benefited others in the class. Before each
class, she does a "check in" and asks how we are doing. The check-in makes me feel cared for. Because of the journal, I can
easily recall how I feel after each session. I feel especially relaxed and calm after each session. Surprisingly, I also get an
energy boost from the session.” Program Participant
These programs are sponsored by the generous support of Boulder Seniors Foundation: Introduction to Gems of Excellence Brain/Mind Course
The Gems of Excellence Program addresses the brain’s “electrical system”, which connects every part of the physical body by coordinating its various functions with signals from the brain. Learn simple tools for correcting inexplicable barriers and challenges to improving your own fitness, health and well-being. This electrical system creates an energy field and the Gems of Excellence provides tools for quickly entering corrections into the energy field.
“Excellent program and Instructor! The concept of GEMS is very new and unfamiliar. Laura was very easy to
understand and clear on instructions. I am going to take the Introductory class again to be able to put some of
the exercises in practice making sure I am doing them correctly. Thanks for offering this program.” Program Participant
An Introduction to Shakespeare's Comedies
In this series of six classes, review Shakespeare's tragedy “Othello” by examining aspects of a play that has kept audiences and readers fascinated for over four hundred years. Participant discussion encouraged and no prior knowledge of Shakespeare’s work is required. Lori Lucas is a long-time resident of Boulder and teacher of literature and composition, both abroad and in the U.S. where she has taught Shakespeare at the University of Colorado, Boulder. This program is sponsored by the generous support of Boulder Seniors Foundation.
"Lori Lucas is a great instructor who makes Shakespeare come alive. Her years of experience show, and her insights give plays I have read or seen before new meaning. " Program Participant
"Lori was inspirational and led the class in detail through the many nuances of a Shakespeare play. Many
suggestions for further exploration were helpful and she was openly receptive to any comments from the class.
Really look forward to more of her classes!" Program Participant
"It was a great experience for our class in reading and discussing one of Shakespeare's plays. Lori was a great leader and provided added color and comments to help deepen my understanding of the human condition that William Shakespeare described so well in all of his plays!! It is hard to believe that these plays were written 500 years ago. Human behavior hasn't really changed all that much in all those years." Program Participant
