Join us for a Seaweed Ramen Cooking Feast! Over the two week class you will learn skills for both quick weeknight Ramen Bowl suppers and an all-out-invite-the-whole-neighborhood Ramen Feast, featuring Seaweed as the star ingredient, of course!

The first week we will start with seaweed identification and the various nutrient and flavor profiles of many of the species that abound on the Maine Coast. We will also get a look behind the scenes of the Maine Coast Sea Vegetables processing facility and prepare a quick soup to share. We will reconvene in week two for a more elaborate Ramen Feast with all the fixings. Bring your take-out containers and a hearty appetite!

Hope to see you there!

Manage Stress & Build Resilience/Surviving Stress - live via Zoom

$67

with Carole Freeman, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Jan 16, 2023 at 5 pm
2 additional sessions through Mar 7, 2023

This class is not about learning a single breathing trick. It’s about correcting a dysfunctional breathing pattern and replacing it with emotional health and wellness. More than 90% of people who suffer with chronic anxiety (or stress) have breathing pattern disorders (known as Dysfunctional Breathing).  The normal response to stress (anxiety, frustration fear), involves a breathing pattern of shallow, upper airway, open mouth breathing, with tightened abdominals, designed to help us run from a burning building or fight off an attacker. If we are under chronic stress, this breathing pattern becomes a habit as our ‘default’ breathing which is not good because it stimulates the brain to perceive more stress and anxiety. At this point, this ‘default’ breathing pattern is working against us and is known as “dysfunctional”.
