The Upside of Depression

“The Upside of Depression” workshop given by Marcy Venezia of Glee Works on Tuesday, February 25th at 6:30 pm.

A mind, body spirit perspective reveals important opportunities to reduce the severity of depression, help individuals develop resilience and practical skills for managing their depression.

Within the context of discussing the stages of depression, we will look at how mindsets, physiology and spiritual practice can reduce the negative aspects of depression. Through mindfulness practices, you will learn to cultivate hope, relax and find joy in this interactive engaging experience.

Marcy began developing SocioSomatic Dynamics (Mind, Body Spirit integrated practice) in the 1980s. Her thesis, Counseling Gifted and Talented children using Body Awareness, helped children learn to cope with the stress of being gifted and having learning differences by teaching them to manage their physiology. She currently coaches’ individuals and groups, and conducts seminars to help people understand the mind, body and spirit connection and how it impacts their world so that they can reach their goals.

The event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.

Passion Project’s First Presentation on Floor Cloths

New program series called Passion Project’s first presentation on Floor Cloths given by local resident Cynthia White on Wednesday, February 19th at 6:30 pm.

What are Floor Cloths? According Wikipedia “Floor Cloths is a medium of expression. Most modern floor cloths are made of heavy, unstretched canvas with two or more coats of gesso. They are then painted and varnished to make them waterproof. In the past few decades, the desire to decorate homes in a more personal way has stimulated their popularity. Unique designs are made in a variety of styles and colors, using many techniques. This gives today's floor cloths the ability to be created for any style interior.”

Cynthia is new to her current hobby but is happy to share her knowledge and passion with everyone. There will be on display the various stages of the process. We hope you join us and learn something new!

What is your passion? The Bridgewater Public Library is looking for volunteer presenters for a new program series at the library: Passion Projects.

Maybe you know a lot about wine or cheese or tea. Possibly you can talk about yoga or meditation. Do you keep chickens? Have you built your own Tiny Home? Everyone's an expert in something. What's your expertise? Share your interests and knowledge with your fellow residents here at the library. Interested persons can contact us by email at with your name and your Passion Project!
