This Weekends Workshops at The Cape Ann Healing Center

hi there

We have two things happening this weekend!

1. Osho Meditation : Nov 13th with Silvie Lockerova – Reiki and Matrix Quantum Healing Therapist

Saturday, November 13th 1pm – 5pm; $25
What is Osho Meditation? For western people it is hard to meditate as people do in East, to sit still. Osho Meditations are therapeutic meditative techniques, using active motions and specific breathing or repetitive movements through which a person spontaneously brings self into the meditative state. Osho Meditations revibrate “the sleeping energy” and helps to put an individual into a present time.  Osho techniques are dynamic forms of meditation, involving safe, active physical movement.
To prepare for these meditations: eat light food the morning before the workshop (fruits and veg).  Bring a scarf, a light snack and plenty of water.  Wear sport clothes and bring extra sport clothes to change.
To pre-register call 978-282-1191 x 1 or email silvielocker@hotmail.com for more information.

A 1941 Gloucester Football Scorecard

Almost 69 Years  Gloucester High School beat Winthrop 31-0 at Miller Field in Winthrop. How do we know? The official score card is on Ebay. For me finding this score card sparks visions of a different time in history. When I saw that there was a roster list I said to myself, I bet there was a Frontierro on this team. Sure enough, if you look at the Gloucester substitutes #29 Frontierro – 173 lb Guard.

This game took place less than a month before the attack on Pearl Harbor and I am sure that many of the men who fought on the field went off to serve their country in World War II.  5,600 men and women from Gloucester served in World War II.

Today is veterans day and we at GMG would like to thank all those who have served in the armed forces.  If you see someone in uniform today or a veteran you know, please take the time to thank them and have them share a memory of their service.
