The Institute for Inspired Living, 85 Washington St., Reno, will offer the “Create a Loving Legacy” workshop from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 17. The cost is $25.
By applying the 12 gifts in the best-selling book and movie “The Ultimate Gift” by author Jim Stovall, this special workshop guides participants through creating a legacy statement that reveals their guiding principles, ideals, beliefs and personal insights, morally as well as financially. What problems and challenges in life have shaped who you are today, and the way you make decisions? What are you most grateful for that you hope to pass down to future generations?
Call (775) 882-5771 to register.
As part of the Healing Arts program, musicians from the Reno Chamber Orchestra will perform in the Tahoe Tower Lobby at Renown Regional Medical Center from 4 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 18.
A string quartet of violinists – Marilyn Sevilla and Kathy Jerome, violist Mary Wheeler and cellist Barbara McMeen – will play classical favorites in this performance, part of a yearlong series of monthly chamber music presentations.
The Healing Arts program at Renown Regional began in the early 1990s. Since then, a book titled “The Harvest of Lesser Burdens: Art in the Field of Medicine” was published in partnership with the Nevada Museum of Art. The Tahoe Tower also recently has opened, with more than 400 works of original art, including two works in each of the 190 private patient rooms. Future plans for the healing arts program include the completion of a healing garden with fountains, streams, sculptures and a flowering landscape, as well as additional musical performances including music at the patient’s bedside.
A local donor funds the Musical Art Series, including performances by the Reno Chamber Orchestra, the Reno Philharmonic Youth Symphony Orchestra and the music at the bedside at Renown.
