Mill Valley Village is a place to belong, to connect with old and new friends. Our more than 100 local volunteers, your neighbors, couple old-fashioned neighborliness with modern know-how to provide a wide range of programs and valuable benefits to fellow villagers as well as to the broader Mill Valley community.
A Celebration of Mill Valley Village Artists
September 22nd, 3 - 5:00
Mill Valley Golf Course Clubhouse
We hope you will join us for a sociable afternoon celebrating and admiring these artists and their art.
On display will be a rich variety of paintings, ceramics, photography and more.
It will be an easy-going afternoon with plenty of time to mingle and talk with artists about their work,
while enjoying refreshments and each other's company.
There will be a brief program as well, with conversations about the role creativity can play as we grow older.
As a reminder to all Mill Valley Villagers, we would love to have you bring a piece of your artwork.
If you have not already signed up to bring a visual art work (painting, collage, photography,
sculpture, ceramics, handwork, etc.), to find out how to do so or for more information click here.
Announcing A New Village Program
Spirit Rock - First Thursday Afternoons
Mill Valley Villagers (members, volunteers and friends) are invited to join us at the Mill Valley Golf Course Clubhouse for a new monthly program featuring video talks from the world famous Spirit Rock Center.
These talks will be featured the first Thursday afternoon of the month from 3 - 4:30 in:
May, June, September, October and November this year.
As many of you know, Marin County is fortunate to have the wonderful Spirit Rock Meditation Center so close by. The center offers many innovative programs. Among them is a Monday evening meditation program followed by a speaker, often a bestselling author or luminary in their field. These sessions are attended by many participants at Spirit Rock, but they are also "live-streamed" so that those who cannot make it to the center may watch and listen. The folks at Spirit Rock have kindly supported our interest in making some of the talks available for a group of villagers to watch together.
For more information on these programs click here.
A New Collaboration With the Library
We are excited to announce a new partnership between Mill Valley Village and our amazing Mill Valley Library!
Through this collaboration we aim to bring together two very vibrant parts of our community to craft programs of general interest to many of us, young and old. We will touch on aspects of aging, science, and practical matters, among others, presenting programs designed to inspire, provide information, and cut across generations.
We owe special thanks to Anji Brenner, City Librarian, for spearheading this joint effort!
Our first collaboration, Plan Well, Live Well, Die Well, a simple yet powerful 90-minute workshop was aimed at helping individuals, families and communities talk more openly about planning, living and dying well. It was designed to help reduce the fear and uncertainty often associated with navigating end-of-life and help people connect to what matters most.
Please stay tuned for announcements of future collaborations later this year.
