Brattleboro >> All Brown Bag Lunch Presentations take place from noon to 1 p.m. at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 157 Main St., and are free and open to the public.

On Monday, May 30, there is no Brown Bag Lunch for Memorial Day.

On Tuesday, no Brown Bag Lunch is scheduled. Check the stroll calendar for updates www.strollingoftheheifers.com/calendar.

On Wednesday, learn to pay gentle attention to the bodily-felt sense of a situation. Because your body knows you, the felt sense carries meaning in your life. What was stuck, confused, or unclean "comes into focus" — creating new possibilities for understanding, communication, and action. Beatrice Blake specializes in teaching "Focusing and Thinking at the Edge."

On Thursday, change your thoughts, change your life, with hypnosis. Hypnosis is a good answer to many underlying difficulties that life may bring. Discover how hypnosis can bring positive suggestions to the subconscious mind, opening it to optimistic attitudes and thoughts. Brattleboro's nationally Certified Consulting Hypnotist, Susan Rosano, MA, will explain hypnosis and the positive changes it can bring you.

On Friday, June 3, there is no Brown Bag Lunch due to Stroll Weekend.
