Tai Chi Tuesday | Wellness Seminar in Boothbay Harbor



Do ever feel like you need a vacation after your vacation? Every Tuesday, beginning Tuesday July 1 at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m., for only $15.00 per person, Newagen Seaside Inn, in conjunction with John Jenkins, is offering an interactive experiential wellness seminar.  Tai-Chi Therapy™ is a vehicle to experience internal peace while embracing the external beauty of Newagen Inn. “Wellness and well-being are inclusive ideas that promote mutual benefit to nature and the nature of our being. We are but a single thread, woven into the tapestry of the social fabric we call . . . Community. Nature is more than a ‘thing’ to be observed, but it is the essence of who we are. Our nature, with nature, share the same breath. Of the planet, ours, are the: eyes, ears, mouth, heart, soul” -John Jenkins. Our guide, John Jenkins, has more than 35 years of experience providing tailored personal and professional development programs for learners and leaders of all ages & abilities. He has lectured and trained throughout the U.S., Japan, People’s Republic of China, and is an area resident. Tai Chi Tuesday is open to all ages and abilities. Be sure to register early, wear comfortable clothing and a smile.

Things to do while in Boothbay Harbor | Maine State Aquarium

Two tone Lobster

Located on the water in West Boothbay Harbor, the aquarium is operated by the Maine Department of Marine Resources. This educational facility was built in 1993 along with the state’s new fisheries research station. The main gallery resembles the rocky coast of Maine. A collection of regional fish and invertebrates can be seen hidden within the granite-like cliffs. Interactive displays, including a shark touch tank and tide pool touch tank, encourage discovery learning. Other highlights include the 23 pound lobster and fascinating color morphs of lobsters in blue, calico, albino and half and half. You have to see them to believe them! Open 10am – 5pm
