Lynn Marie Landry will discuss how to care for yourself through massage. Her goal is to to remind us of the connection between body and spirit, emphasizing awareness of what we can do — not what we are accustomed to doing. Once you understand the body’s natural tendencies, you can use that knowledge to create change.

Lynn’s areas of expertise are traditional Swedish massage, energy work, sports treatment and active release techniques.

Thailand from the Elephant’s Back

Monday, May 15–12:15-1:00 p.m in Room 1-J

There are many ways to see Thailand — if someone had told me I would see that beautiful country from the back of an elephant, I would have rolled my eyes in disbelief. Yet that is precisely what I did over the winter holidays. Through stories and photos I’ll share the beauty of the Northern Thai landscape and some of what I learned about the plight of the Asian Elephant.
