"Shelf-Care" Discussion Group

Book cover Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 2/11/2020
Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Time: 6:30 PM
Description:
 The public is invited to explore popular self-help books with the book group, "Shelf-Care," sponsored by Northern Light Blue Hill Hospital and Blue Hill Public Library. This 2nd Tuesday of the month group, led by licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) Dede Ragot and Patty Bergstrom, will meet on February 11th at 5:30 PM at the library.

February's book will be "When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times," by Pema Chodron. "Here, in her most beloved and acclaimed work, Pema shows that moving toward painful situations and becoming intimate with them can open up our hearts in ways we never before imagined. Drawing from traditional Buddhist wisdom, she offers life-changing tools for transforming suffering and negative patterns into habitual ease and boundless joy."

Patty Bergstrom, LCSW, is a Behavioral Health Provider at Northern Light Health Blue Hill Primary Care. Dede Ragot, LCSW, is the social services director at Island Nursing Home in Deer Isle. Both are avid readers and enjoy discussion groups and learning from others.

This group is free and open to everyone. Copies of the book will be available to check out in advance at the library. For more information, contact the library at 374-5515.
