Free Time: The Source of Your Force

Grades 7-10.

The Concord Free Public Library invites teens in grades 7-10 to come to a special workshop at the Concord Free Public Library (129 Main Street) on Saturday, May 4 from 2:00 to 3:30 PM.

As human beings, we all need time for free, unscheduled moments. What happens to our bodies and mind when we do or don’t experience them? How can we make room for free time in our busy lives? Join Be Well Be Here founder, Lara Wilson, to discuss simple ways to tap into the Free Time: The Source of Your Force. Try some creative games and mindful wellness practices that honor your way in the world, relieve anxiety, and lead to confident self-expression. Learn how these methods of accessing your flow state – or “the zone” – boosts the force that already exists within you.

Free. Space is limited. Registration is required. Please email odurant@minlib.net to register, or call (978) 318-3379. You may also register on the Library’s calendar of events at https://concordlibrary.org/news-events/events-calendar/.
