Motueka Library: 1000 Books Before School (Thursday 25th October 2018-Tuesday 31st December 2019)

Reading aloud and talking to your kids are two of the best things you can do.

1000 Books Before School encourages families to spend quality time together, promotes pre-literacy and learning by having listened to 1000 or more books before the child starts school. Any child aged from birth to starting school can participate in this self-paced programme.

1000 Books Before School is a programme designed to encourage and support families to read aloud to their children from birth with the knowledge that reading aloud to children is a vital ingredient in building a child's foundation for successful learning.

1000 Books Before School is a collaboration between Tasman District Libraries and the Motueka Family Service Centre and is supported by the Motueka community.

Wild Goose Qigong Classes (Wednesday 13th February-Wednesday 17th April 2019)

The benefits others have derived from the practice of this Qigong are wide ranging; from improved energy, sleep, mobility, balance, digestion to decreased pain, inflammation, blood pressure.

The Wild Goose Qigong system dates back over 1,800 years over 28 generations of Grandmasters. It has amassed an extensive library of medical, martial and spiritual Qigong exercises and applications. Opened up to the public in 1978, by the late 27th Grandmaster, Madam Yang Mei June, it is quickly growing across the globe.

Over the ten classes, I will be teaching you three movement and meditation exercises from this time-honoured Qigong system; the 1st 64, Body Strengthening by Patting and Jing Gong / Meditation.

It's my job teach you Wild Goose Qigong and enable your ongoing practice so you will reap maximum benefits.

I know that sometimes it’s not possible to attend every class. Sometimes it can be difficult to maintain practice between classes and into the future. That’s OK. That’s why, when you enrol in the course, I’m going to give you free lifetime access to my online courses in the Da Yan Academy, so you can continue your learning and practice whenever you wish.

Limited to 12

The Path of Joyful Awakening (Thursday 7th March-Thursday 25th April 2019)

Every Thursday from 7.15 pm. to approx. 8.45 pm starting March 7th. for 8 weeks.

This is a course designed to help anyone who is interested in understanding the Buddha’s teaching and, step by step, to embark on the path of joyful liberation. It is a way to start at the beginning. But beginning doesn’t mean unimportant or ineffective.

Buddhism is not about belief but about authentic discovery of what makes things tick motivated by a wish to see all existence established in happiness free from difficulty.

Each class will be a mixture of study, discussion and meditation practice. Participants will be required to commit to every class and be prepared to do some study and practice in between. Nothing too arduous!

The course is offered by Keith Rowan. Keith has had a lifetime engaged with Buddhism and has had the good fortune to be directly guided by some wonderful instructors and mentors. His enthusiasm and confidence in the Buddha’s teaching can be infectious so beware J

If this appeals to you, please register your interest: keith@rigdzin.org

This course is given for free. Donations for the running of the centre welcome.

Yoga Nidra & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training - April 2019 (Thursday 4th-Sunday 14th April 2019)

Yoga Nidra, Basic Breathing Methods and Restorative Yoga are key practices to equip aspirants and practitioners with yogic skills and techniques for self support as well as clients and or students. The methods taught in the training will assist in the release of deep muscular, mental and emotional tension, inducing calmness and clarity for a range of life and health situations.

Yoga Nidra systematically releases tension experienced in the muscles, the breath, and the nervous system. Ultimately the practice works directly on the mind to release impressions from the past and anxieties about the future.

Applications in professional life
These tools may be effective in the management of:
* Stress, Anxiety, Insomnia & Depression

* Addictions
* High Blood Pressure and Heart Disease

Murchison Library: Teen Reading - Spoiler Alert! (Monday 8th April-Friday 10th May 2019)

Get your inner comic artist out and enter our teen reading competition!

Spoiler Alert is a teen reading competition with a comic element.

Your challenge is to summarise a book you've read as pithily* as possible. Using John Atkinson's comics as a base, draw the book you've read with the title and caption it underneath.

Enter as often as you like. You can draw and enter at the library, you can take a picture of your entry and email it in, or you can post it to the Tasman District Libraries Facebook page: www.facebook.com/tasmanlibraries.

John Atkinson's Abridged Classics: Brief Summaries of Books You Were Supposed to Read But Probably Didn't will be available at your library to help you get started.

There are prizes to be won, so get drawing!

*In as few words, and as accurately, as possible.
