Saturday Tai Chi 9-10am 7 weeks (4/7-5/26) Often called “moving meditation” or “the art of creating energy,” tai chi is both a martial art and a slow rhythmic exercise that can be traced back nearly 2000 years in China. Over the past century it has become popular, practiced not only in China but worldwide. This class will learn and practice qigong, or stationary tai chi movements, as well as tai chi itself, movements choreographed seamlessly together.  Emphasis will be on tai chi principles: good posture, balance, and continuous whole-body movement, all of which depend on a calm mind and relaxed body. In the interest of moving as freely, be sure to wear loose-fitting clothes and light, comfortable shoes. Steve Steinhoff has been studying tai chi for over 15 years and for the past 2 years has been teaching a tai chi class at the Cinnaminson public library. Class Fee: Palmyra Residents: $35 Non-Residents: $40 Drop-in: $7 instructor does not have change.

  • April 23 at 7:00pm: The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho The Alchemist is the magical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. From his home in Spain he journeys to the markets of Tangiers and across the Egyptian desert to a fateful encounter with the alchemist.  The story of the treasures Santiago finds along the way teaches us, as only a few stories have done, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, above all, following our dreams.
  • May 21 at 7:00pm: Killers of the Flower Moon:  the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI by David Grann In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.
