Introduction to Mind/Body Meditation at Earle Baum Center (online)
Meditation truly is a way to nurture oneself. It provides a sacred time to pause, destress and realign oneself with one’s true inner dialogue. There is no wrong or right way to meditate and it is very simple! Meditation stimulates the brains parasympathetic nervous system, the “rest and reset” system in our body. In pausing together we can find abundance in our stillness, and relaxation in the permission to let go.

The Business of Blindness: Coffee with Mike (online)
What does it mean to be blind or low vision? Mike Cole, a veteran of all things blindness, leads this call-in forum to discuss the day-to-day ins and outs of blindness—from daily living in your home environment to navigating the vast expanse of bureaucracies.
Vision, Peer-led Support Group (online)
Vision is a peer-led drop-in support group that runs on a 12-week cycle of topics based on Hannah Fairbairn’s 2019 book, “When You Can't Believe Your Eyes: Vision Loss and Personal Recovery”. Every first and third Monday of the month, we meet to discuss different topics and share our experiences, thoughts, and knowledge. We are people with similar experiences who genuinely want to support one another in all aspects of living independently with our changing vision. Each week the topics are independent, so you can join the group at any week. Reading is not required. However, if you would like topic details beyond our discussions, please refer to the book which is available on BARD (DBC11619).
March 4: Book Introduction: “How do you recognize a friend if you can’t see her face? How will you get to the store if you can’t drive? How do you know which medication to take if you can’t read the label? When You Can’t Believe Your Eyes is a self-help book for people losing good sight.” This week, we will delve into the book's introduction, outline our approach to studying the book, and get to know each other by sharing brief insights into our visionary journeys.
March 18: Begin “part one: Believing the Unbelievable: Facing Trauma at the hospital and Back at Home. Most people who lose vision or have a diagnosis of future significant vision loss have a problem believing it. (You may feel the same, but then you wouldn’t be reading this book!) They know perfectly well that their vision is blurred, becoming contracted, or obscured, but just can’t make it fit with their experience of life.”
The events for the upcoming week are read aloud on our event hotline every Friday, which can be accessed by calling 415-694-7325. For more information about visiting the Adaptations Store, head to our shop page.
