Having served a distinguished 10 year career as flagship of the US Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean and the Second Fleet in the Atlantic, the USS Salem served as host to such notables as the US Ambassador to Spain, John D. Lodge; the Honorable Thomas S. Gates, Undersecretary of the Navy; Admiral Arleigh A. Burke, USN, Chief of Naval Operations; the Shah of Iran; the President of Lebanon and the King and Queen of Greece. Although Salem never fired her mighty guns in anger, her very presence served as a stimulus for peace during those troubled times that came to be called the Cold War.

Blue Hill Meteorological Observatory, located at the top of a scenic mountain range south of Boston, is a unique American institution. Founded in 1885 by Abbott Lawrence Rotch as a private scientific center for the study and measurement of the atmosphere, it was the site of many pioneering weather experiments and discoveries. The earliest kite soundings of the atmosphere in North America in the 1890s and the development of the radiosonde in the 1930s occurred at this historic site.

The tranquil landscape of the Eustis Estate provides a perfect backdrop to experience mindfulness movement through walking meditation. Mindfulness movement allows us to get out of our heads and be more aware of our bodies and the space we are in.

Following an introduction and discussion led by certified instructor Elaine Davis, we’ll set out to explore this meditative movement for ourselves. Whether you’re a beginner or practice meditation regularly, all are welcome. Be sure to dress comfortably.

Classes offered in partnership with Elliott Physical Therapy.
