:: Mondays & Tuesdays :: Happiness Sessions at the reading room ::
Monday evening, 6pm - 7:30 - Laughing Room
Could your life be any more awesome? An hour a week of serious laughter would almost certainly make it so. Laughter warm ups, laughing hard, and rolling around on the floor laughing are all guaranteed. Come along, even if you've never laughed before, we will make it easy for you. Mental training is like any other form of training - do it once, and it will be fun and have some benefits in your life. Do it often and you become fit, healthy and skillful. Do it often, and you wont be able to stop laughing.
Tuesday afternoon, 12:30 - 1pm - Tuesday lunch destress session
Take 30 minutes of your lunch hour to completely let go with a guided deep relaxation. Bring your workmates and friends.
Tuesday afternoon, 1pm - 1:30 - Inner peace and tranquility session
These personal development sessions will be different each week. This weeks session will involve a journey in our imagination, to a lake of tranquility. There we will cultivate our own inner unshakable ocean of peace.
Payment is by what you think the session is worth - our payment jar is anonymous, and no one is watching. Improving your life is priceless.

:: Tuesdays :: Dancing Room!
If you feel like dancing but can't wait for the weekend, try Dancing Room! Tuesday nights, with the location announced Guerilla style on their facebook page. Please note it is not an event that is facilitated by the Reading Room, but a separate commitee. The best way to find out where it is held each week is via their facebook page.

:: Wednesday 6th June ::
June Meeting of the Adelaide Feminists Reading Group :: 6:30 - 9:30

This month we're reading a classic- bell hooks' Ain't I a Woman: Black Women and Feminism, and find out how relevant it is in its criticism of white privilege in feminism, forty years later. Happy reading!
Facebook event

:: Wed 13th June ::
Margaret Lloyd exhibition :: Steps & Bones :: Opening night Wed 13th June, 6 - 8pm
These art works explore themes from fairytales, folklore and made-up books. The stories in them are neither good nor bad, they are just a way to use line and colour and to talk about the things that I’m concerned about (violence, character, animal-humans).
Facebook event

:: Sat 16th & Sun 17th June ::
Rumble in the Jumble :: 11am - 6pm
Got junk? Need more? Need less?!
The reading room is hosting a gathering of knick-knacks, books, boots, and clothes in the spirit of Re-Newal. Kicking off our season of community market joy, we create a space for you to donate your lonely items to warm our hands and those we facilitate.
This two-day extravaganza of bargaining for beauties, finding treasure in others dusty troves, and letting go of things no longer loved also has the added bonus of helping us financially through the tough winter months, as all proceeds go to support our community arts program.
Donations for goods open the 1st of June, to close the 15th of June. Partying happens Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th of June, 11am-6pm.
Come rumble our jumble, and help us support you! (and them... and those dudes over there...)
