Something for everyone, this week at the Buttonwood Tree!

This week at the Buttonwood... yoga, movies, music, & more!

Tonight (2/19) at 7 pm, de-stress with Laughter Yoga. Free, fun, and healthy! Dress comfortably and be prepared to move around. Laughter yoga produces endorphins and boosts self-confidence, so come if you're having a rough week or if you just want to have a good time!

On Wednesday (2/20), our Buddhist Film Series continues with My Reincarnation at 7 pm. My Reincarnation, directed by acclaimed documentarian Jennifer Fox, chronicles the epic story of the high Tibetan Buddhist Master, Chรถgyal Namkhai Norbu, and his western-born son, Yeshi.

Thursday (2/21) is our first concert of the week: Alex Vans & the Hide Away will be performing at 8 pm. Alex Vans turns his keen observations of pop culture into guitar-laden indie rock with tight melodic hooks and sincere lyrical sensibility. His latest album, DJ Booth, came out this January.

On Friday (2/22) at 8 pm, we have another exciting concert for you: folk/acoustic sister duo Ari & Mia Friedman. With their beautiful harmonies, picking, and bowing, they explore the traditions of Southern Appalachia and Northeastern fiddle music, their original compositions crossing paths with older traditions.

As always, Saturday mornings at the Buttonwood offer great events for strengthening your body and nourishing your soul. Qigong starts at 7:30 am, followed by Vinyasa-style Community Yoga at 8:45 am, both free. Then, at 10:30 am, Spiritual and Holistic Healer Annaita Gandhy will be hosting the "Aligned with Source" workshop, focusing this week on "Balancing your Masculine & Feminine." There is a $5 suggested donation, but, as with all Buttonwood Tree events, we will never turn anyone away for lack of funds.

Later on Saturday, we will be hosting a book signing with Liela Fuller!  Her first book, a collection of poetry called Life's Reflection, has just been released, but writing has been her passions since she was a young girl. Come from 3 to 5 pm to talk to this amazing new author.

Last but definitely not least, the Federico Ughi Quartet will be performing on Saturday night at 8 pm. Federico Ughi’s captivating jazz infuses the New York avant-garde sound with a sense of melody inspired by the Italian classical and folk traditions of his childhood in Rome.

All events are at the Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts & Cultural Center:
605 Main Street
Middletown, CT
