ARGUMENT 101: NCR 9714

How to Argue with Just About Anyone, Just About Anytime This half-day workshop introduces some of the best, most relevant classical schools of thought to restore civility and bolster critical thinking. Entertaining, accessible instruction and practice will build empathy, character and community. Humorously employing the wisdom of Aristotle and others, with a pleasant dollop of Latin and Greek vocabulary, this course recognizes and celebrates the usefulness and applicability of logic and rhetoric in solving the contentiousness we encounter. (Previous exposure to philosophy, logic or rhetoric is not required.) By conclusion of the workshop, attendees will have “tried on” many of the concepts and ideas and will be able to implement easily what they learned.

AYURVEDIC EATING: A Seasonal Conversation Over Food NCR 9709 In this three-hour course, we will explore how food impacts our well-being. We will learn how healthy tissue metabolizes to form Ojas (the immune support of the body), and how the use of a Seasonal Ayurvedic Diet promotes its formation. Using the Ayurvedic Principles of the Six Tastes and Dosha, we will learn how spices in a meal affect digestion and metabolism. We will sample each flavor and discuss how too much or too little of any of them alters health and diet in general. We will then enjoy a simple lunch fit for the spring and discuss how the meal has been adjusted to support the qualities present in the spring months. The combination of this experience, along with discussion, will illuminate how we can review and change our food choices (from diet and time of day to spices and food groups) during other months of the year and stages in our lives.
