Re-Discover Your Intuitive Self with James Burwash (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

Have you ever wondered what intuition is all about? This program will be a guide to rediscovering your intuitive self. We will start with some general information, discuss grounding, and define the five “Clair” senses – tools for developing your intuition, trusting your intuition and unblocking your intuition. The evening will conclude with some suggested books and courses. I will also share my personal journey in rediscovering my own intuition.

About me: Prior to 1999, I absolutely did not believe in anything that could not be scientifically explained: I was a totally left-side brain kind of guy, logical and methodical. In 1999, I met my birth mother who introduced me to the Norse Runes. I played around with them a bit and, yes, it was interesting, but . . . ? Then my life forever changed in 2011 when my wife and I out walking came upon a fortuneteller offering a 20 minute reading for $20. I said to my wife let’s go in. My wife looked at me aghast when I suggested we go in and get our fortunes’ told.

I will explain more about how this “chance” encounter forever changed my thinking and launched me into the world of Tarot cards, and brought me here today to present an intuitive rediscovery program.

MOOC: Indigenous Canada (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)

MOOC Indigenous People of Canada © NVDPL 2018

Join us for an interactive learning course on Indigenous Canada. This MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) was developed by Indigenous scholars at the University of Alberta. The material will be offered over 9 weeks in a space that will include videos, discussions, and shared insights.

MOOCs are free courses open to anyone. All you need is access to the internet (at home or at the library) and the time to complete them! You can review this course and others on your own but why not come out and hear what others also find interesting as we go through the material.

Facilitator Sherry Boudreau asks that you join her in a conversational journey on Indigenous Peoples of Canada. Sherry is excited to support this learning opportunity as an advisor, facilitator, and First Nation. She will be bringing the experience of helping government employees create community conversations to this interesting MOOC. On the next stage of her learning journey Sherry is currently doing a PhD on how we learn our attitudes towards river systems.

Do you want to practice your new Spanish or English skills?

Join us to exchange languages, share and learn with native speakers of English and Spanish. This is a conversational meet-up and we will talk about cultural, community and current events at home and around the world. We will discuss the language similarities and differences.

You will appreciate our casual, organized, and courteous format. We encourage everyone to speak in the language they want to learn. Feedback on your efforts will be provided by our members who are native speakers of that language. All those interested in practicing their new English or Spanish skills are welcome!

Drop in! No registration required.
