Tuning In

Wainwright House is offering a three-part meditation series starting on Saturday from 11:30-1 and continuing October 2 and 9. Explore the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation and learn to be present moment by moment.

Jackie Berner, a meditation instructor in the Buddhist Shamatha tradition, along with yoga/mindfulness instructor and school psychologist Beth Gallos, will teach participants exercises and techniques that will help gain a clearer awareness. Regular meditators can deepen their existing practices.

The fee is $100 for members, $115 non-members, $40 drop-in fee per class.

How Do You Like Them Apples?

Families will enjoy apple cidering, along with a fall hike, at the Rye Nature Center Saturday at 1. Learn all about the process and sample your creation. Suggested for ages 4-7.

The fee is $5 for members, $8 non-members.

Acting Out

The Rye Arts Center is offering an introduction to improvisation for ages 16 and up Saturday from 2-4. The fun “Get Serious About Play” workshop is full of games and exercises in a non-judgmental environment.

No experience is necessary. The fee is $40.

Looks Good on Paper

Teens can learn basic origami folding techniques at the Rye library on Saturday from 3-4. Instructor Yoshima Arai’s focus is teaching patience, accuracy, respect, and the joy that comes with a sense of accomplishment.

Climate Change Perspectives

The Meeting House presents “When Science Meets History” on Saturday at 3. This first in a series will include a lecture and book signing by Boston University professor Richard Primack, author of “Walden Warming: Climate Change Comes to Thoreau’s Woods” and conservation biology textbooks. Primack compares today’s warming climate data with that of Thoreau’s mid 19th-century records.

Admission is free, but donations gratefully accepted.
