Registration details available at



NEW! WELLNESS SERIES: It’s Not All Snow and Mistletoe with Dr. Kendra Brown, psychologist and author at The Hub on Canal.  Sunday December 2, 2:15-3:45pm.  If your holidays don’t match those painted by Norman Rockwell, you can find help here.  Dr. Brown mixes humor with tried and true solutions for some new “holiday recipes”—some to cope more effectively through holiday stress and some to brighten the season—adding new flavors and zest.  Bring your challenges and stories and be prepared to participate.  FREE to Hub on Canal members with prior registration.  Non-members $5 at the door only.  Space is limited.






NEW! WELLNESS SERIES: A New Way of Consciousness with Dr. Kendra Brown, psychologist and author at The Hub on Canal.  Sunday January 27, 2:15-3:45pm.  Experience a variety of meditation practices including “mindful meditation.”  Currently the subject of highly respected research, meditation has been proven to enhance emotional and physical health and provide a new way of facing and mastering the stressors.   Dr. Brown will show you how to use these tools in your life.   FEE: $20.  Space is limited.

NEW! WELLNESS SERIES: The Golden Years—Is That All There Is? with Dr. Kendra Brown, psychologist and author at The Hub on Canal.  Sunday February 24, 2:15-3:45pm.  You’ve been coached for decades to save for retirement and let’s hope you managed that challenging responsibility.  Unfortunately, that’s only part of the retirement battle and certainly not the only key to enjoying your “golden years.” You’re not to blame for lack of emotional preparation—the guidebooks are silent on this priority.  Grandpa didn’t live as long as most of us do today and that fact alone means a rewrite of the old plan is required.  Dr. Brown will help you begin the process of making a fulfilling life transition.  FEE: $20.  Space is limited.





NEW! WELLNESS SERIES: From Conflict to Opportunity with Dr. Kendra Brown, psychologist and author at The Hub on Canal.  Sunday March 24, 2:15-3:45pm.  Each of us likely faces a series of difficult relationships.  It’s how we manage them that matters.  Gain valuable and effective strategies and tools from Transactional Analysis.  Learn to turn stressful conflicts into opportunities to heal and bond.  Dr. Brown brings years of experience in conflict negotiation and cognitive therapy to help you achieve relationship goals—even with those “troublesome significant others.” FEE: $25, includes a copy of Dr. Brown’s latest book, Erica’s Blog.  Space is limited.
