Evie

Weekly Canine Office Hours

Whether you miss your dog, or simply want some canine affection, Huxley or Evie would love to see you! One or the other will be available weekly on Tuesdays from 4 - 5 p.m. for office hours at Frost Library. In nice weather, this will be held on the lawn in front of Frost. In poor weather, it will be beside Frost Cafe. This event is co-sponsored by the wellness team and Amherst College library.

Insight Meditation Group

Whether you have meditated for a long time or have never meditated, come join us for this time of practice together. Come to relax, quiet your mind, learn how to experience less suffering and stress, explore Buddhist philosophy and psychology, or just talk about what it means to live from compassion and awareness--or because you are curious.
Led by Mark Hart, Buddhist advisor

"Our" Story Exhibit: 400 Years of Wampanoag History

“Our” Story is an interactive, multimedia exhibit that frames the 1620 Pilgrim arrival in Plymouth within a long history of Wampanoag adaptation and innovation. The exhibit's content ranges from videos by award-winning Mashpee journalist, author and filmmaker Paula Peters, to art by Mashpee artist, writer and activist Robert Peters and his son, Robert Peters Jr.

Each year, a new theme is added to the traveling exhibit; the first installation debuted in 2014 with “Captured 1614” providing a critical back story to colonization and the roots of the American holiday of Thanksgiving. “The Messenger Runner” added new context regarding the Wampanoag tribe’s communication traditions. The newest panel “The Great Dying” depicts the catastrophic effects of a plague that devastated the Wampanoag nation between 1616 and 1619.
