WRITING

For Writers: The Fine Art of Critique

With Bonnie Shand

Writers need feedback, since writing is solitary work, and we are often too close to our creations to have a clear perspective on them.

Both poets and prose writers who have taken classes or with writing experience, will have an opportunity in this class to learn and practice the skills of giving constructive criticism, to benefit their own work and the work of fellow class members.

No matter who is giving or receiving the comments, it becomes a growth process for everyone in the group. You will discover that your own writing improves and will learn to distinguish between the feedback that rings true for you and how to let go of what doesn’t.

The instructor creates a safe space in which work will be shared, and asks that you bring a short, one-page piece of your writing to the first class.

’Twas brillig: Alice & the Wonderful World of Lewis Carroll

With Barry Evans

While rowing up the Thames near Oxford on the “golden afternoon” of July 4, 1862, Charles Dodgson made up a story to entertain Lorina, Edith and especially Alice Liddell.

Four years later – 150 years ago – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published under the pseudonym of “Lewis Carroll.”

Although best known for the Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass books, Dodgson was more than a writer of children’s fantasy stories. His 3,000 photographs (1,000 of which survive) are some of the finest of his time, while his contributions to geometry, matrix algebra and mathematical logic are still relevant today.

In this course, we’ll review both the real worlds of Dodgson and Alice and her family; and the frabjous realms created by “Lewis Carroll.”

Day & Date: Tues., March 29

Time: 6-8:30 p.m.

Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love and Wisdom

With Marilyn Montgomery

The Buddha and other great teachers were born with brains built essentially like anyone else’s – and then they changed their brains in ways that changed the world.

Science is now revealing how the flow of thoughts sculpts the brain. By combining breakthroughs in neuroscience with insights from thousands of years of contemplative practice, you too can use your mind to shape your brain for greater happiness, love and wisdom.

In this series of classes, based on neuropsychologist Rick Hanson’s book Buddha’s Brain, as well as other resources, you will learn practices and meditations to stimulate and strengthen your brain that create states of calm, compassion, happiness, and joy instead of worry, sorrow and anger.

Anam Cara: Spiritual Wisdom from the Celtic World

With Marilyn Montgomery

This course will be an introduction to the ancient teachings of Celtic wisdom based on the writings of John O’Donohue, poet, philosopher and Celtic mystic. In particular, the focus will be his book Anam Cara, which means ‘soul friend’ in Gaelic.

These classes will be an exploration of the profound insights that the Celtic world offers into the universal themes of friendship, solitude, beauty, longing and belonging, and the individual soul’s journey. The Celtic understanding did not set limitations of space or time on the soul. The soul in this tradition is seen as a divine light that flows into you and, in times of darkness, it is the soul that knows what to do.

Through talks, film, discussion, poetry and meditation, you will be introduced to the timeless wisdom of the Celtic world bringing a deeper understanding of yourselves and their relevance to the world around us today.

She has been immersed in this wisdom since then, primarily through John O’Donohue’s teachings and writings.

The Yoga of Public Speaking

With Yusef Hayes

Public speaking is for everyone! Dynamic conversation is not one-size-fits-all, and this course is tailored for individual styles. Quiet speakers can be just as impactful as loud speakers, and shy communicators can reach an audience just as successfully as outgoing communicators. The goal of this public speaking class is not to teach you to speak like famous speakers, but to teach you the best way to communicate as you are.

Public speaking can also be a powerful tool for human integration. Many have found that improving public speaking skills can bring more confidence and a greater sense of possibility into their lives.

This course combines the philosophy of modern yoga practice with the art of human communication.

Day & Date: Sat. & Sun., May 7 & 8

Time: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
