What is this sense we call intuition? Do you experience what is sometimes called a gut feeling,it can be that voice inside that tells you to take a different route home and later you find out that you avoided a terrible accident. It could be the deja’ vu feeling you get when walking intoa new place – or even the sense that you really know someone you’re being introduced to for the first time. Do your friends and family often say you might be psychic? Then this is the class for you! We will explore all this and more in this introductory class.

Fall/Winter Rambles for Seniors and other Free Spirits

$5

with Sam Horine, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education

Calendar Oct 8, 2019 at 4:30 pm

Walking is a good exercise; it promotes good conversations with fellow walkers and the opportunity to observe one's surroundings. So, for those with some free time, I'm organizing a couple of “rambles” a month - starting in September and ending in March. Most 'rambles' will be in rural areas with a few in urban settings. All will be within a 40 miles radius of Skowhegan. While most 'rambles' will take place in the afternoon, some will start earlier in the day. At times, we may want to carpool to a starting point. Good walking shoes, warm comfortable clothing, in winter - snowshoes and or ice creepers, and the yen to explore are the only essential elements needed.

First Meeting will be held at SAHS at 4:30pm on October 8, 2019

Every second and fourth of each Month
