Zen Meditation 101
Meditation is now mainstream and is being practiced in many places in many different ways. The meditation that will be taught in this course has its roots in Zen practice. In our everyday lives, we can see how complex life can be and how, sometimes, we need to have a place to relax and catch our breath. Participants will learn that this place of rest already exists in our own bodies. The most important point in this class is to learn how to just sit, and be very comfortable and restful – a practice and tool that can be applied to any life endeavor.

Introduction to Topical Herbal Medicine Making
Salves and herbal oils are delightful balms for soothing skin irritation, dryness and inflammation. Botanical infused oils act to extract and preserve the medicinal qualities of herbs, providing a convenient and pleasurable form of topical application. In this class students will learn how to craft two herbal preparations. This is a hands on educational experience. A discussion on which plants to utilize and their medicinal properties will be included. We will begin by making an herbal infused medicinal oil with local wild plants. This resulting medicinal oil can be used as a topical massage oil or

Introduction to Food as Medicine
Many medicinal herbs are tasty and can be prepared as food, rather than what we typically picture as medicine (teas, capsules or tinctures). The herbs used are generally safe to consume in larger doses, and have been traditionally used as food plants or culinary herbs. In this class students will learn how to craft three herbal medicinal foods. This is a hands on educational experience. A discussion on plants to utilize and their medicinal properties will be included. We will begin by making an herbal infused vinegar with wild + organically grown herbs, then move on to crafting Herbal Honey’s and Herbal Elixirs. Everyone will go home with a sample of one of the herbal medicines.

Love Lives Forever
Join this series of five classes designed to assist people who are dealing with anxiety, depression and other effects of grief and loss. “My classes would also be appropriate for anyone who is interested in making connections beyond the veil,” says instructor Violet Young. “My classes discuss the concept that Love Never Dies and that connecting with deceased loved ones is possible. I present my own experiences since my husband crossed over on April 6, 2015, as well as my experiences with other family members prior to this loss. I also share experiences that I had with my mother when she was in hospice. This will be a forum for people to share their own experiences and thoughts about the possibility that they have received messages from their loved ones. This class is spiritually based, however not religious. I will be assisting people in becoming more open and aware, discerning and receptive of possible messages from loved ones. In my experience, many people have experienced messages and visitations but are often self-conscious or afraid to actually believe it. My classes help people feel less isolated and confused, leading to more self-acceptance and self-love to assist with the grieving/healing journey.”
Spanish for Beginners
This class is designed for people with no, or very little, Spanish skills. Students will learn the basic vocabulary needed for essential communication such as alphabet, personal information, greetings, usual questions (Where is the bathroom?

The class will be tailored to the students’ interests and needs, whether that be travel, shopping, health, or other goals.

From global warming to the local battle about aerial spraying, environmental issues more often divide than unite us. This class uses six hot issues to explore how science and conflict resolution practices can help create mutual understanding and the discovery of common ground. Each class discuss one issue. In the 2nd and following classes each session begins with a short follow up on the previous class. The goal is not to solve these big problems, but to find constructive ways to talk about them and to use the relevant science, economics, and ethics.

Have a Pleasant Present:
Techniques for Creating Inner Peace in Stressful Times This class is about assisting people in understanding that our own personal belief system and selftalk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively. We are influenced and become preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. As this happens so slowly during our lives, and we become resigned to the “usual outcome”, we are not conscious of the patterns being formed. After resigning ourselves to the “it’s just the way it is” way of life, there is often the onset of depression and anxiety. By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers as well as recognizing that we can give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives, we can then be open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy. During the class, there will be time for personal exploration and sharing of personal experiences by class members. There will be helpful hand outs and the creation of personal flash cards by class members. This class has been extended to six weeks due to student response.

Coming home to move on:
Newport natives find their MBA foundation at OCCC Every one of the OCCC sharks is on a journey. The story of Newport native Dylann Deeds proves that a career path is rarely straight and narrow. In her case it began at Newport High School, then led to Sweden, and then to Portland, before landing her back on the Oregon Coast where she and her husband, Nick, are taking foundation classes for their MBAs. Dylann first connected with OCCC in high school, when she took a few college courses to augment her NHS studies. Back then, the courses were held in a rambling, rented office space on Hwy. 101 in central Newport. As a local girl with big dreams, she was less than inspired. “The classes were in a tiny little facility that was literally falling down around them. This new facility is awesome,” she said, looking around the vaulted ceilings in the cavernous Student Commons at the Newport campus, which was opened in 2009. After graduating high school, Dylann (Crichton) Deeds studied music in Sweden, then returned to the Northwest. It was back home in Newport that she met Nick, who was serving in the Navy. The couple were wed in February 2009. When his service was complete, Nick and Dylann made their home in Portland. But they grew tired of the urban pace and the constant traffic, and eventually moved back to the coast, where Dylann could be close to her newborn nephew and the rest of her family. Despite finding some personal happiness, both realized they had unfulfilled academic goals. They decided that their marriage could use two MBAs, which would give them more earning power and professional freedom for the rest of their lives. But how? Enter the ASOT-B, or the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer in Business. Thanks to a close working relationship between OCCC and Oregon State University, this program allows students to take foundational degree courses that are automatically transferred toward the business programs at OSU. The Deedses enrolled in our ASOT last summer, and are scheduled to complete its requirements next June. The next stop in the journey will be a move to Corvallis, where they will continue their coursework. As OCCC tuition and fees are lower than those at OSU, Dylann and Nick are saving money. That’s just part of the reason, however, that they chose OCCC. “The fact that we get to see my family every day means a lot,” she said. “And, Portland was great, but I’ve lived on the beach my entire life, and I had a hard time with no ocean.” She’s also been happily challenged by OCCC’s robust offerings and
Dylann Deeds talented faculty, which she believes are preparing her for the rigors of the master’s degree that lies ahead. “Both Marge (Burak) and Amanda (Zerr) love math, and that comes across. I really enjoyed their passion for it. I also got to take Writing 122 with Robert Roger. He’s really cool – he dropped out of high school, went to community college and eventually became a district attorney. An amazing story!” “I feel like this college is going up and up, and getting better and better,” Dylann continued. “The classes are small, and people really care. You know everybody – and you recognize everybody. You’re not just a student number – they know your name. And that’s something you’re not going to get anywhere else. And I greatly appreciate that.”
