    The Bereavement/Grief Support Group is open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. There is no fee.

    The group focuses on learning together about coping with grief, with the intention of receiving and offering support. The group is informal and includes sharing of personal grief experiences. Each session is accompanied by relevant handouts, books and videos that can be borrowed for review at home.

    Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for exploration of the changes brought to our lives by the death of a loved one. We encourage participants to attend as many sessions as possible. Groups meet in eight-session blocks.

    Any sharing that takes place in the group is to be kept within the group; no individual will criticize or make public judgments about the responses of another member of the group; and all members will be invited and given the opportunity to speak in the group if they choose.

    If you have questions about these support groups, contact Jean Semprebon or Silke Musik at 802-223-1878.

Drawing on the tradition of Tao, Baylen will share a variety of holistic healing tools that can help balance the body’s immune system preventing illness while and benefiting chronic allergy symptoms. Discussion will include acupressure points and herbal home remedies.

      Friday, January 6 at 7 p.m.

      Allergies are often an expression of the body’s immune system overreacting. One of the best ways to treat the root cause of seasonal as well as other allergies is to address the immune system in the “off season”.  Join Baylen Slote of Black Turtle TCM for a dynamic evening of conversation and practice. Drawing on the tradition of Tao, Baylen will share a variety of holistic healing tools that can help balance the body’s immune system preventing illness while and benefiting chronic allergy symptoms. Discussion will include acupressure points and herbal home remedies. Practice of simple Qi gong exercises will be followed by Q & A over tea.

      All are welcome!

    Second Wednesdays from 6:45 to 8:15 p.m.

    We’ll start each evening with a sing-along Song Circle using Rise Up Singing, the great collection of folk songs.  Then we’ll explore some circle singing:  lifting our voices in spontaneous harmony-rich songs.  We’ll sing renditions of both traditional songs and fresh brand new songs that we create together as we explore how to turn a simple melody into a living, changing, multi-layered song.  All voices and ages welcome.

    Heidi is a singer songwriter with a passion for sharing original compositions and folk songs inspired by and in service to community and the natural world.  She recently studied improvisation and circle singing with Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon and is excited to keep exploring! Heidi has been leading a cappella singing groups for over 10 years.  She currently leads the Plainfield Community Sing, teaches  courses at the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, directs the Ollabelles, and is an instructor for Village Harmony.

      Second Wednesdays from 6:45 to 8:15 p.m.

      We’ll start each evening with a sing-along Song Circle using Rise Up Singing, the great collection of folk songs.  Then we’ll explore some circle singing:  lifting our voices in spontaneous harmony-rich songs.  We’ll sing renditions of both traditional songs and fresh brand new songs that we create together as we explore how to turn a simple melody into a living, changing, multi-layered song.  All voices and ages welcome.

      Heidi is a singer songwriter with a passion for sharing original compositions and folk songs inspired by and in service to community and the natural world.  She recently studied improvisation and circle singing with Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon and is excited to keep exploring! Heidi has been leading a cappella singing groups for over 10 years.  She currently leads the Plainfield Community Sing, teaches  courses at the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, directs the Ollabelles, and is an instructor for Village Harmony.

    Civil Rights Activist Penny Patch to Speak at JSC’s MLK Day Event Jan. 16

    Penny Patch, who was active in the 1960s with the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a civil rights group, will be the keynote speaker at Johnson State College’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance Jan. 16.

    The event, which will include remarks by JSC President Elaine Collins and a performance by the JSC Chorale, will begin at 11 a.m. at the Dibden Center for the Arts. It’s free and open to the public.

    Patch, a longtime nurse midwife, became the first white woman to work on a SNCC project in the South in ’62, while she was a student at Swarthmore College.

    The King day event reinforces the campus commitment to diversity and inclusion, social justice and community service.

    President Collins was among the state education and business leaders who signed a statement to affirm Vermont’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusiveness.

    Related initiatives this academic year include the college’s 1% Challenge, which encourages JSC community members to commit to donating 1 percent of their average work time – about 10 hours a semester – to community service.

    And last semester, flags were installed on campus in support of several social justice causes.

    “Understanding diversity is important because our community — on campus, in Johnson, in Vermont, in America — is made up of many histories and perspectives which deserve equal consideration,” JSC Director of Residence Life Jeff Bickford says.

    He co-chairs the campus Diversity Task Force, which is coordinating the King day event with the support of JSC’s Office of First-Year Experience.

    We’ll explore the unique ecological importance of Chaga and its polypore (wood eating) relatives, developments in their uses as agents for radiant health, and how to best approach their harvesting and preparation that encourages symbiosis and longevity for us as well as them.  Elliot Cluba is a naturalist, herbalist, nature awareness and primitive skills educator, and a juice fasting and detoxification consultant.  He has been harvesting local plants and fungi for use in his line of herbal remedies for years, and is most passionate about connecting the individual to the life of their bioregion with sustainability as the focus.

    52 State St, Montpelier, VT, United States

    52 State St, Montpelier, VT, United States

    Montpelier Police Dept. will be holding Coffee with a Cop event on Saturday, 28 January 2017 from 8 – 10 AM at Kismet Farm to Table located at 52 State Street in Montpelier.

    What is “Coffee with a Cop” you ask?

    It’s a simple concept. Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

    In over 175 cities and towns in 36 states, “Coffee with a Cop” has done wonders for community trust, police legitimacy, and partnership building.

    Community members come to a local “Coffee with a Cop” for a variety of reasons, but no matter why, they are likely to leave with a more positive impression of their local police department.

    One of the keys to “Coffee with a Cop’s” success is that it removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving.

    Coffee will be provided at the event.

    All are welcome!

    Join photographer John Snell for a trip through photos to our neighbor Cuba, a place where time seems to have stopped but also the home to warm, rugged people determined to make their way in the world. The beauty of the landscape is stunning and that of the crumbling architecture surprisingly beautiful. Yes, there are old cars and so much more!
