    It’s What You Think... Date: Tuesday, May 5, 2020 Time: 5:30 pm-7:00 pm Location: Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room Fee: $18 in advance; $22 at the door

    Getting along with other human beings is tricky business. We are regularly called on to navigate conflict, disagreement, criticism, blame, self-interest, hurt feelings, and triggered emotions that spark unproductive reactions. In this engaging presentation, Peter will introduce three easy-to-learn mindful practices for using your brain to choose WHAT to think, HOW to think, and WHAT to do, to transform—conflict into connection—stress into confidence—and contempt into trust. Peter’s presentation is conflict resolution—meets neuroscience—meets empathy—meets interpersonal success. It’s a simple, replicable practice of mindful thinking and doing.

    The Bird Diva will lead a bird walk, but don’t expect her to play the stereo-typical bird guide. This workshop is about empowering you as a birder and having a darn good time while doing so. We will meet at the Joy Green Visitor Center on the Merck property. Please come dressed to hike, bring a water bottle and binoculars. Space is limited; Pre-registration is required.
