Through experiential learning and reflection, participants gain a greater understanding of the innate resources they possess and learn to access these resources for increased resilience and enhanced well-being. MBSR programs have been heavily researched in recent decades with studies revealing various benefits such as improved immune function and cardiovascular health; reductions in stress, depression, and anxiety; enriched relationships; and enhanced awareness, concentration, and focus. The program includes mindfulness meditation instruction and practice; yoga and body awareness training (for all ability levels); an exploration of habits and patterns of thinking, feeling, and behavior; as well as brief educational sessions and opportunities for discussion.

The show is refined and revised each year, and the 10th Anniversary production will feature more magic than ever before.

Author Series: K. Heidi Fishman
Wednesday, 1/31/2018 7:00 PM-8:00 PM
Worcester JCC, 633 Salisbury Street, Worcester, MA
A promise kept is like the twinkling stars in the night sky: a constant reminder of something important that makes you who you are. Can nine-year-old Tutti keep a promise--and a secret? Her family's life may depend on it.

In the early 1930s, life for the Jews is on the brink of ruin: Hitler has come to power, and the golden memories of happy times are fading fast. One young couple, Margret and Heinz Lichtenstern, decide to flee Germany with their parents and daughter, Tutti. They move to Amsterdam, where Heinz is able to continue his work and where there seems to be hope for the future. Two years later, Tutti's brother is born, and the family is prospering. But then Germany invades the Netherlands. And in the pre-dawn hours of May 10, 1940, the Lichtensterns suddenly learn that they have not moved far enough. This is the true story of what the Lichtensterns endured under the Nazis. Told by Tutti's daughter, Heidi,and filled with historical documents and photos, it vividly recreates how one family conquered fear and heartbreak to survive. Theirs is a tale of both unimaginable devastation and lucky surprises--raids, sabotage,helpful friends and strangers, and a very special gift. One family. One remarkable story. And in the end, a promise kept.

From the Author: Tutti's Promise is based on the true story of what happened to my mother, uncle, and grandparents during the Holocaust. In order to write the book I did extensive research -- interviewing my mother, consulting my great-grandfather's diary, searching through archives and historical documents, visiting the places the family lived during the war, and interviewing friends of the family. The things that happen in this book are real. The conversations were created to capture the emotions and reflect the personalities of my family members as I knew them to be.

Tutti's Promise is appropriate for ages 10 and older. While it might be a gentle introduction to the youngest readers, many adults have found it an inspiring story as well.

This event is part of the Worcester JCC Author Series. The series is free and open to the public. This event is a part of the Worcester JCC Author series. The series is free and open to the public.
