Atlantis: Lessons from A Lost Continent SENR2016-002 Saturday (6/25)

1-3:30pm

$50

Perhaps no single mystery has fascinated mankind as long as the legend of Atlantis. But where is Plato’s fabled continent or, for that matter, was it even a real place at all or simply a metaphor? Come and join the discussion as we examine those questions and more in considerable detail. In this lecture, much of it illustrated with detailed maps and graphs, you will learn; how the legend got started and why Plato wrote about Atlantis in his Dialogues, (the Criteaus and the Timeaus), the various theories offered by the science and Atlantiphile community as to where and what Atlantis might have been, the evidences for advanced technologies existing in the ancient past and why they might point to Atlantis having been a real place, determining where Atlantis might have existed if we look at the topography of the world of 10,500 B.C.E. and what might have destroyed the fabled continent and why we cannot find evidence for its existence today. This is not simply a rehash of previous Atlantis theories but a fresh and new perspective that will leave the listener wondering if we really do know everything there is to know about our prehistoric past or if there is so much more to know. (Minimum class size is 5 and maximum is 20.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is June 22. Instructor: Jeff Danalek

Creating Lifelong Health and Vitality SENR1011-002

Tuesdays (6/28)

1-3pm

$35

We often equate aging to loss of strength and energy, a mind that’s less sharp than it used to be, and the inevitable onset of illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease, cancer and more. But what if it were possible to live a healthy, active life well into your 90s and possibly even your 100s? Scientific studies suggest that only 25% of how long we live is dictated by our genes. The other 75 percent is determined by our lifestyles and the choices we make each day. In this class we’ll learn about people who are living long, productive lives without all the illness we have come to expect. We’ll discover the world’s best practices in health and longevity and learn how to put them to work in our own lives. We have more control over how long we live than we think. Come and discover how adopting even a few lifestyle changes can easily add ten good years or more to our lives. (Minimum class size is 8 and maximum is 20.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is June 23. Instructor: Debbie Lunnon

Iconic Americana SENR2014-002 Thursdays (7/14-7/21)

6-8:30pm

$60

Norman Rockwell, Andrew Wyeth, and Georgia O’Keefe - Iconic Americana. Why are these artists as popular as they are? Do they represent America as it was or what we hoped it to be? Is it propaganda? And if so, what was is the purpose and result. (Minimum class size is 6 and maximum is 20.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is July 11. Instructor: Ron Judish

Preparing for the Second Half of Marriage Now That the Kids Are Leaving Home SENR1013-002 Saturday (7/23)

2-5:30pm

$65

Congratulations! Your last child has left home (perhaps for the second time) and you are looking forward to spending time with the love of your life. Your children take the focus for such a long time in the life of a marriage; it can be more difficult than folks expect to regenerate the excitement of a couple-focused relationship. The stresses and busy activity of parenting can leave you feeling tired and distant from your mate. In this interactive class, learn to reconnect on a deeper level by using practical research based PREP and Active Relationships communication

techniques, and numerous skill building activities from the book, Relationship Wisdom: 51 Tips to Enrich Your Relationships and Make Life Easier. Are you willing to redefine your marriage by assessing your goals and life dreams? It's time to recommit to your CORE relationship values and make the second half of your marriage the best yet. A materials fee of $12 is payable to the instructor at the beginning of the course and includes the book, Relationship Wisdom: 51 Tips to Enrich Your Relationships and Make Life Easier. (Minimum class size is 5 and maximum is 30.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is July 20. Instructor: Greg Thiel

The Easter Island Eclipse: Trip of a Lifetime SENR1012-002 Tuesday (7/26)

9-10:30am

$30

Would you be interested to know what Easter Island is like? In July 2010, our presenter traveled to Easter Island in order to witness a total Solar Eclipse. Come share his stories and see his many photographs from this once-in-a lifetime experience. Not only was the eclipse incredible, but the island itself was even more interesting; even to a scientific man, the place was filled with emotion and drama. Hear a firsthand account of the eclipse experience, what it’s like to stand in front of mysterious monuments, and feel the emotional impact of being in “The loneliest place in the world.” Though it is a mystical place filled with adventures, it also represents a cautionary tale for our own world; come hear why. After hearing this presentation, you may be motivated to go to Easter Island yourself, and you’re sure to find the speaker’s insights and travel tips helpful. (Minimum class size is 6 and maximum is 20.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is June 27. Instructor: Bill Hermanson

The Artist’s Lives SENR2018-002 Thursdays (8/4-8/11)

6-8:30pm

$60

This course reviews aspects of three artist’s lives - Caravaggio, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, and Jackson Pollack - that may surprise you. Did you know that one was accused of murder and constantly one step ahead of the authorities, yet a vanguard of the Baroque? One was a credible sculptor in their own right but always in the shadow of one of the richest families in America. Another battled alcoholism which led to their death, yet they were the foremost exponent of the only true American school of modern painting. These sensibilities, personalities, and faults will be discussed in a fun and informative review of the most seminal and popular works and artists in art history. (Minimum class size is 6 and maximum is 20.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is August 1. Instructor: Ron Judish

How Valuable Is That Coin? SENR1014-002 Saturday (8/13)

1-3:30pm

$50

Wonder how much those old silver dollars you’ve been keeping in a drawer are really worth? Now is your opportunity to learn what makes a coin valuable and have fun doing it. Our instructor has been collecting coins for over thirty years, so he knows what to look for in old coins, what makes them valuable, and how to get the most bang for your buck when buying or selling them. Come and learn the tricks from the numismatic trade such as: what are grading standards and how they work, what are proof sets, type errors, commemoratives, and slabbed coins, how to buy and sell wisely on eBay, understand the difference between Red Book and Blue Book value and the means and speed by which coins gain value, and finally how to avoid the most common coin rip-offs. This lecture is a must for anyone wanting to know just how much those family heirlooms are worth as well as for those looking for a safe and lucrative investment that doubles as a great hobby. There will be plenty of display coins to pass around. (Minimum class size is 5 and maximum is 20.) Last day to register for or drop the course and receive a full refund is August 10.

Legal issues for the home based businesses

Thursday (8/4)

11am-1pm

$25

When starting a business out of your home, many people register with the Secretary of State's office, buy a laptop and start providing services. However, in order to protect yourself and your family, the steps involved in starting a business out of your home may be more complex. It may require getting a business license, paying an occupational privilege tax, having special insurance, and having contracts with your landlord or lender renegotiated. In addition, if you meet with clients at your house or store sensitive information, you may be opening yourself up to more liability than you originally thought. Elizabeth Lewis from the Law Office of E.C. Lewis, P.C., home of your Denver small business attorney, will discuss issues that every person needs to think about if they are going to open a home-based business or already have and need a refresher to make sure they are protected! Instructor: Elizabeth Lewis, Esq., Law Offices of E.C.Lewis P.C.

Consider the pattern of breathing as a metaphor of how we live our lives. As we restrict our breathing, dampen and repress our emotional responses, we are likewise restricting our lives. By focusing our minds and directing our breath, we open ourselves to a more positive and healthier life experience. Needless to say, as our emotional life opens, physical restrictions resolve. These experiences change our perceptions and resolve stress. I invite you to create this experience yourself. Bring a blanket, pad and pillow for this class. The breathing segment will be done lying on the floor.(Minimum class size is 4 and 12 maximum.) Instructor: Mary Kennedy

Perhaps no single mystery has fascinated mankind as long as the legend of Atlantis. But where is Plato’s fabled continent or, for that matter, was it even a real place at all or simply a metaphor? Come and join the discussion as we examine those questions and more in considerable detail. In this lecture, much of it illustrated with detailed maps and graphs, you will learn; how the legend got started and why Plato wrote about Atlantis in his Dialogues, (the Criteaus and the Timeaus), the various theories offered by the science and Atlantiphile community as to where and what Atlantis might have been, the evidences for advanced technologies existing in the ancient past and why they might point to Atlantis having been a real place, determining where Atlantis might have existed if we look at the topography of the world of 10,500 B.C.E. and what might have destroyed the fabled continent and why we cannot find evidence for its existence today. This is not simply a rehash of previous Atlantis theories but a fresh and new perspective that will leave the listener wondering if we really do know everything there is to know about our prehistoric past or if there is so much more to know.
