  • Mindfullness Class at NOMA

    Activities

    Mindfulness is defined as experiencing the present moment with open curiosity, without judgment, and with a willingness to be with what is.

    Mindfulness training teaches skills to help individuals:
    - Cope with the stress, pain, and challenges of everyday life
    - Deal with disturbing events with grace and composure
    - Be present and alive in the here and now.

    About mindfulness classes at NOMA: Classes will take place September 29, October 6, 13, and 20.

    $70 non-members | $50 NOMA members - Maximum class size is 30. Participants sign up for the series, not per class. Participants will meet in the second-floor Woldenberg Board Room.

    Participants will learn to develop mindfulness through guided meditation and brief exercises that will help them experience the present moment during everyday activities. Although no specific outcome is promised, participants typically report feeling more alive, more “in-tune” with themselves and others. In addition, research has shown significant beneficial effects in dealing with stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, chronic pain, and diabetes. Contact NOMA to sign up and for more details.

  • DIY-Organic Wool Vases

    ActivitiesBotanical GardenEducation

    Learn to make Organic Wool Vases during this class. Use hand-spun and dyed wool from Vermont sheep and alpaca farmers to create one-of-a-kind practical and unusual vase. Wait until you see how many awesome fibers you get to play with! Match the vase color to the flowers you’ll buy when you leave with this special vessel. 

    Instuctor: Bella Legault

    Afew thoughts from the instructor: "I love to be creative—whether it's creating mixed media artwork, cards, re-purposing clothes, or piecing together a new craft. I've been told that my passion, enthusiasm, and energy are contagious! I believe that anyone can be creative in their own way. It's the process of being creative that feeds my soul—not just the final product—and that's exactly what I want to share with others through Art À La Carte."

  • James Rivers Movement

    ActivitiesBotanical GardenMusicThursdays at Twilight

    James Rivers is a New Orleans musical treasure. He plays a mixture of rock, progressive jazz, rhythm and blues, and gospel.  It is the sort of music that implies something for everybody. James Rivers, one of only three jazz musicians ever known to play the bagpipes, would probably call himself a saxophonist, but his forte is really an amazing musical dexterity that has helped him master a dozen other instruments.
