Self-Care September: Holistic Wellness, Music & Art History

Did you know that September is Self-Care Awareness Month? During our busy day-to-day lives, we so often forget to make time for our own needs. That’s why this month we’re encouraging you to take a bit of time for yourself — time for relaxation, rejuvenation and maybe even some rousing entertainment.

Need somewhere to start with your month of self-care? Every Wednesday in September, we’ll be hosting “Cause and Effect Wellness” classes with Paula Sullivan from Tai Chi of New England. Not only will you learn tai chi movements designed to increase balance and flexibility while relieving stress, you’ll also learn how to embrace overall health and wellbeing! If that’s not the perfect way to embrace self-care, then we don’t know what is!

We also hope you’ll join us Sept. 9 for a performance of some of the most beloved showtunes when Michael Goodwin presents “The Musicals in the ‘60s.” If you’re a fan of “Mary Poppins,” “The Sound of Music” or “My Fair Lady,” this event will be a true treat!

On Sept. 21, learn about the lost art of scrimshaw — carvings and engravings made on ivory, bones, sea shells, antlers and cow horns that were popularized by 19th-century mariners. Author Curtis Martin, a longtime Wellesley resident and professor emeritus of Merrimack College, will dive deep into the ocean with you to explore these unique pieces of history and art.

Then, the Piatigorsky Foundation will bring you an awe-inspiring classical concert on Sept. 23 when Linda Rosenthal, a skilled violinist, and Maxim Pakhomov, renowned Russian pianist, bring their talents to Wellesley.

Full details below. We hope to see you!
