Forests in Motion
Forests in Motion: Ecosystems around Triphammer Pond. This hike focuses on field botany, that is, the plant life of Wompatuck State Park. Besides learning about different plant species, youÌ_ll explore the forest as an ecological community. In fact, forests are a lot like human communities (except a fair number of our forest residents eat other community members for dinner!). Finally, you might think that forests are rooted and immobile, but they are actually places in motion. You will discover the layers of WompatuckÌ_s forests (canopy, understory, and forest floor) and the process of forest succession that leads from open land or ponds or lakes to a more-or-less steady-state forest, known as the climax forest. This walk will leave the paved paths for rougher trails, so please wear sturdy hiking shoes and long pants. Also bring water, mosquito repellant, and sunscreen! This hike is intended for adults and children 8+. This program may be cancelled or modified due to weather.

Hingham, MA - Open Reiki Share and Healing Night
This event is open to the general public and to practitioners who wish to share. Suffering from depression, anxiety, arthritis, trauma, pain, cancer, chronic stress, headaches, chronic illness? Never experienced Reiki before? Please keep reading to learn more about the benefits of reiki and what a Reiki share is. What is Reiki?  Reiki is a Japanese complementary alternative mind body medicine therapy that works with the human body's own bioenergy field. It uses vibrational, or subtle energy, administered most commonly by a light touch of the hands to assist the body's ability to heal itself. Reiki has gained acceptance and popularity over the years and is widely used and accepted as an effective therapeutic treatment in ...many medical offices and hospitals across the country. As time goes on, there are more and more medical studies coming out on the efficacy of Reiki as a viable alternative treatment option especially in the areas of acute hospital care, hospice, pre-op and post-op, psychotherapy, stress, and trauma. It is also used not as a substitute, but in conjunction with other conventional medicine treatment options. What is a Reiki Share? - Reiki Shares are gatherings of Reiki practitioners to practice Reiki as a group. Some Reiki circles are exclusive, open only to trained Reiki practitioners. An exclusive Reiki Circle is a gathering where practitioners can let their hair down a bit. These circles are meant as occasions to socialize with other Reiki healers, support each other's paths as healers, and to exchange Reiki treatments with one another. Open Reiki Shares are invitational types of gatherings which allow the general public to come and experience Reiki in a group setting. Public circles are mainly intended to bring awareness to Reiki and to help educate anyone who is curious about learning about Reiki. These gatherings also help to promote Reiki practitioners as well as the benefits of reiki healing in the area. Our mission with these shares is to offer people greater knowledge of and access to Reiki, a complementary healing practice whose primary benefits include relaxation and stress reduction. Through sharing the gift of Reiki, we hope to empower others in their journey as they seek balance and healing in their daily lives. COST: FREE - Donations requested to benefit a local cause of $10 or more. *** RSVP's requested. **** Dates and times subject to change.  LOCATION: Next to Tedeschi's Shopping Plaza and Victoria's Subs in West Corner.
