Be an EMPOWERED Empath! Spring 2023


with Angie Butler Welch

Calendar Apr 11, 2023 at 6 pm

You’ve heard the term but do you know if you are one? Here are just a few signs: Do you read or feel people's emotions without even trying? Are you highly sensitive, feeling everything very deeply? Are you known as a human lie detector? Do you find people always gravitate towards you for help or advice? Do you often feel overwhelmed in large crowds? Feel overly sensitive to the news? Found yourself in a relationship with a Narcissist? You might be an empath! Instead of feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and drained, Angie will teach you how to be an empowered empath so you can use these “sensing” abilities to feel confident, become a powerful manifestor, and an incredibly compassionate healer and friend.

Ukulele: Basics, Strums and Fingerpicking Spring 2023


with Susan Abel

Calendar Apr 20, 2023 at 4 pm

You can learn to strum and fingerpick songs in 6 weeks and have fun, too. Learn to play the basics and how to maintain your instrument. Ukuleles are an excellent and easy first or tenth musical instrument to learn to play -- but like all instruments, ukuleles are a challenge to master. Ukuleles come in 4 different sizes, soprano, tenor, baritone and bass. It is recommended for students who don’t have a ukulele to look up information on the ukulele and visit a music store to see which size is best for you or wait until after the first class where you will be able to try out all ukulele sizes and tunings. If you are already a ukulele player this course will help you brush up on and learn more ukulele strum patterns, chords and chord variations, and fingerpicking playing style. Susan Abel has been teaching the ukulele to adult education classes for many years. She is a member of the Penquis Ukulele Players and Some Reel People Band.
