    With Regina Powers, RN, NP, Reiki Master

    Regina brings in each of the 5 Elements separately, to use as tools to understand the emotional and physical imbalances in our bodies. She starts with the Earth, the element of relationship. The place we learn to give and receive, as if we block one, we block the other. She works with examples and ways we can do a self-check in our own systems. She shares how to work with bringing this back into balance.

    The experience she shares with the group, always depends on the group. Each element speaks in a way that people may get uncomfortable or react to something their body is looking for, ie:Water has to do with anxiety and fear, or Wood has to do with holding onto anger and frustrations. All the elements have a place in us although this workshop is an avenue to bring attention and light onto where they may need to learn, heal or grow.

    Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. You can reserve your spot using the easy online form here, by emailing us at info@hungermountain.coop or calling us at 802-262-3202.

    With Robert Barossi of Hunger Mountain Co-op

    “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf

    Dining on exceptional food and reading an extraordinary book are two great pleasures, and we hope you’ll join us for a book club, co-presented by Kellogg-Hubbard Library, designed to bring those two joys together. Each month, we’ll read a work that is about or related to food, including both fiction and nonfiction books.

    This month's book is: The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats by Daniel Stone

    Titles for the rest of 2019 are:

    September 26 – The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

    October 24 – Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef’s Journey to Discovery America’s New Melting-Pot Cuisine by Edward Lee

    November 21 – Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery

    December 19 – American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields by Rowan Jacobsen

    Kellogg-Hubbard Library can request copies of books through their Interlibrary Loan system, so if you cannot afford to buy the book or don’t want to buy it, you can get a copy at the library. You will need a library card in order to do that. Library cards are free for anyone who lives in Montpelier, East Montpelier, Berlin, Calais, Worcester or Middlesex. If you own a business in Montpelier, but live outside of the service area, you can get a free library card. If you don’t live in those towns, the annual fee for a library card is $40, $35 for people 65 and older.

    If you would like to purchase a copy of the book through Bear Pond Books, please let us know. If five or more people order the book, Bear Pond will give you 20% off, but there have to be at least five ordered. If you’re interested, let us know as early as possible, so we can contact the bookstore and let them know how many books to order.

    Join a Circle of Parents support group for a friendly, supportive environment led by parents and other caregivers. Utilizing a mutual self-help support model, the group is a place where anyone in a parenting role can openly discuss the successes and challenges of raising children.

    The group is a place where parents and caregivers can learn that they are not alone and that they can change and grow. They learn new parenting ideas, replace old, harmful parenting ways with new healthy ways, and build social connections.

    With Amy Panetta, MA, NC, Nutrition and Weight Loss Consultant

    September can bring a frenzy of activities for so many of us. As we settle into the autumn and a new academic year, we feel the pressures mount to stay afloat with our day-to-day responsibilities. With this new excitement and activities, it often leads to a feeling of overwhelm, where the body’s “fight or flight” stress response is stuck in “on” position.

    Did you know that this state of stress can wreak havoc on so many of our body systems, including our ability to manage weight by boosting our cravings for calorie-dense, processed foods? Is there a solution for this cycle? If so, how can we break it? Amy Panetta, MA, NC, Nutrition and Weight Loss Consultant, will guide you through understanding the hormones at play, how you can stop this cycle, find balance, and shed excess weight!

    $8 members/$10 nonmembers
