With these tools you will begin to apply paint in a random process, although under the control of things on your mind. Halfway through the process, members will stop and reflect on their uncompleted work for a brief discussion before they proceed to completion. Sculpting will be added with palette knife, as well as additional colors and brush work by Joe if necessary. When completed the original art will be signed by creator and then examined under a magnifying glass.

Kripalu (Compassionate) Yoga with Judy/Debra Time 9:30 AM Location 700 New Road, Linwood, NJ 08221

Kripalu (Compassionate) Yoga is an integrated practice that revitalizes the body, calms the mind and deepens self-awareness. Kripalu brings body, mind and spirit into a state of harmony and balance. It allows you to choose the level of physical intensity right for you. Instead of encouraging you to judge your performance today against yesterday, or compare your stretch with that of your classmates, Kripalu Yoga teaches you how to listen to your body and honor its needs. Self observation without judgment is its motto. It encourages compassion for yourself and others. The essence of Kripalu Yoga is learning how to be fully present in the moment-by-moment experience of life. 

Kripalu trained instructor, Judy McClain, will teach this class to all skill levels on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. Debra Marshall, Certified Yoga instructor, will be teach this class on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. No previous yoga experience required.

Writing can heal. Learn to use writing to confront the pain, fear, trauma, and strife in your life and claim your unique voice. The class will include generative exercises and well as a discussion of basic elements of a narrative. Come prepared to write!


A graduate of Fordham University School of Law and Manhattan College, Christine Shields Corrigan grew up in Staten Island, where she was diagnosed and treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma at fourteen and began writing poetry, essays, and musings in the journals that now line her bookshelves. After building a successful career as a labor and employment law attorney, she worked as a legal writer and editor, while juggling the busy lives and schedules of her husband of almost thirty years, three children, and her volunteer commitments. After surviving breast cancer in midlife, Chris became a freelance writer.


Her writing about cancer, survivorship, family, and parenting has appeared in The Brevity Blog, Dreamer’s Creative Writing, Grown & Flown, The Potato Soup Journal, Purple Clover, Ravishly.com , and Wildfire Magazine, and elsewhere. She recently completed a memoir: Again: Surviving Cancer Twice with Love and Lists, A Memoir, her account of her cancer experiences how those experiences allowed her to embrace a more authentic and creative life. The book also provides practical guidance about living with cancer for patients, caregivers, and survivors. She’s currently seeking its publication.


Chris lives in Somerset County, New Jersey with her husband, her two teenage sons (as her daughter has grown and flown), and devoted Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She serves on the programming committee of the Morristown Festival of Books and teaches creative nonfiction writing for a local adult education program. When she’s not writing, Chris works in her garden and enjoys reading and cooking. Supporting newly diagnosed cancer patients also is an important part of her life.
