Tackling the college admissions and application process with your children can feel daunting, stressful, and anxiety-provoking. It can even be combative! Rest assured, you’re not alone.
Hear from a panel of Westchester County parents as they discuss how they navigated the process with their children and came out the other side with each of their children committing to highly selective colleges. Topics discussed include: what they wish they knew before they started, minimizing stress, biggest obstacles/what to look out for, where to compromise, timeline and deadlines, the “sweet spot” for supporting without overstepping, supporting their children’s ultimate choice, and reaching the finish line!
Creating a mandala (Sanskrit for “circle”) is thought to be a calming and centering experience–something we can all use during this pandemic. The nature mandala class has the added benefit of spending time in nature, touching, smelling and collecting found natural objects, and then creating an artwork in a virtual, supportive community.
Instructions: The mandalas will be created from materials found in nature. Please collect these items responsibly and do not collect anything in nature preserves. You may collect from your own garden and from other areas. If you collect leaves from living plants, be careful to take only 1 leaf from each twig or branch. Please be careful not to pick any poison ivy leaves. (If you’re not sure what poison ivy looks like, check out various images on Google Image.)
Here are some suggestions for items to collect: 3 fresh flowers, 10 wilted flowers, 15 flower petals, 20 green leaves, 15 leaf buds, 20 pebbles, 10 sticks, 20 evergreen leaves or pine needles, etc. On Monday, also have on hand a large, solid colored surface upon which to create your mandala, and a camera to photograph your mandala. This will be a 45-minute workshop.
Gail Koller, ATR, CTRS is a registered art therapist and a certified nature educator. She has been giving free nature mandala workshops as a way of giving back to the community.

Ayurveda believes a balance of body, mind, and spirit will naturally result in a strong immune system that combats pathogens. Being out of balance results in a weakened immune system allowing illness to develop. Balancing our microbiome – the bacteria, viruses, and fungi that exist in our bodies – is critical to our health. And, nourishing not only our body, but also our mind and spirit is key to the health of our microbiome.
The topics covered will be:
How the microbiome effects the body, mind, and spirit Why mental attitude & emotions affect the microbiome and the immune system
Ways to keep the microbiome in balance
How to nourish our bodies with proper diet and nutrition – seasonally
