How To Register

Mindfulness is paying attention to present moment experience with a spirit of inquiry and non-judging acceptance. In this class you will be taught practices of mindfulness meditation and guided to integrate them into your daily living. Research will be presented suggesting that mindfulness practice can have a positive impact on academic and interpersonal skills; self-regulation of emotional reactivity; stress resilience; performance in sport; physical and mental health; and general well–being. In the participatory part of this class you will discover how being mindful rather than reactive affects your autonomic balance by monitoring your heart rate variability (the pattern with which your heart rate varies with time) and skin conductance (how much you sweat). The ways in which changes in these signals traveling from the heart to the brain affect the responses of the amygdala and cortex -- and subsequently behavior and performance -- will be discussed. This class is especially recommended for individuals working in high stress fields such as law enforcement, health-care and emergency response.

For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) – especially acupuncture, massage and China’s unique wellness culture -- has played a central role in protecting people’s health.

Writing Flash Fiction: Tell Your Story in 1000 Words or Less

#6100005

Flash fiction, micro-fiction, short shorts -- stories ranging from as few as six to as many as 1000 words -- are quickly becoming mainstays of the American literary scene. These short, graceful and evocative literary sketches are sometimes called “vignettes,” and many well-regarded writers have experimented with the form, including Ernest Hemingway, William Carlos Williams, and Joyce Carol Oates. There are countless websites devoted to publishing flash fiction and there are story collections and even entire novels that are constructed entirely from vignettes. In this course, students will read and write flash fiction, eventually perfecting their own vignettes in a creative writing workshop environment. Learning to write flash fiction is also a great way to learn the basics of effective writing, which can then be applied to longer work. Fee $162 Sec. 1: Mon, 6:00-8:00 p.m., Feb. 3-Feb.24, 4 wks.

Introduction to Poetry #6100006 The first step in writing contemporary poetry is recognizing and appreciating its pleasures, which can be difficult when one is used to traditional rhyme and meter. Ted Kooser’s book, The Poetry Home Repair Manual, is a brief and approachable guide to writing in the genre, and we’ll use it in this course to illuminate the subtler uses of rhyme and meter, and as a source for quality examples. Students will have the opportunity to write and workshop 2-5 poems, depending on class size, and we’ll discuss how to use feedback from their colleagues to revise their work. Textbook (purchased separately) required: The Poetry Home Repair Manual: Practical Advice for Beginning Poets. Fee $178 Sec. 1: Fri, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon, Feb 14-Mar 14, 5 weeks.

Principles of Fiction Writing #6100009 Edgar Allen Poe famously said that a short story should strive to produce a “single effect.” Chekhov said that the artist’s obligation was to observe his characters and report their actions without judgment.

We will read stories and consider how these principles take shape in practice. Students will then have the opportunity to write and workshop their own short stories.

You will have the opportunity to share your work with your classmates in a workshop environment, adding to and/or refining your story each week until you have a finished product, revised and ready to go.

You’ll leave the course with a polished short story, a cover letter, and a list of commercial and literary magazines to try. Fee $202

This workshop will guide beginners in the art of shaping memories into meaningful narrative essays. We will learn by analyzing and modeling classic and contemporary works by writers ranging from Virginia Woolf to David Sedaris. Students will learn by analyzing what works and what doesn’t in the essays of their classmates. Each student will leave the course with at least one polished essay and either ideas for more essays or a sense of how a larger work of memoir might come together.

Writing about spirituality is becoming more main stream, with authors seeking increasingly wider audiences, and more books hitting the New York Times bestseller list. Still, it can be a difficult subject to navigate.

In this course, students will tackle spiritual subject matter, drawing on the micro-audience of the class to refine their approach. Students will write and revise at least one essay, workshop it with the rest of the class, read and discuss recently published work in the genre of spiritual writing, and generate ideas for more writing.

From Patchwork to Pixels #5080003 In 1971, the Whitney Museum of American Art hosted Abstract Design in American Quilts, the groundbreaking exhibit that put quilts, as both a craft and medium of fine art, on the map. Thirty years later they did it again with the Quilts of Gee’s Bend, a brilliant showcase of works produced by African American quilters from the isolated hamlet of Gee’s Bend, Alabama. Now, almost half a century later, the medium continues to thrive. Interest in quilting has never been greater and quilt exhibits continue to break attendance records and inspire crowds at museums worldwide. But why? This class will explore the answer to this question, with the understanding that quilts share historic, aesthetic, and cultural connections with the human visual system and the practice of imaging (picture making). With this in mind, a digital collection of quilts, selected from some of the best-known museums in the world, will be paired with relevant examples of historic and modern visual culture. From early maps, to the work of such renowned artists as David Hockney, a new understanding of the medium will emerge, shattering even the most evolved definitions of the craft.

Living with the Desert #5260004 Each of us has come to live in the Sonoran Desert for different reasons, some of us arriving years ago and others, just yesterday. Yet for all of us, the landscape is unlike anywhere we have lived before. The desert’s plants appear unique, even odd; its creatures seem strange and often threatening. Yet nearly every one of us senses a magical – even mystical – quality to the land and it inhabitants, both past and present. Just what is it about the desert that so intrigues us? And what can we learn from and about the land that will enhance our time spent here and let us live gently in this fragile environment? With a better understanding of the relationships that shape the land – a complex interplay among the desert and its plants, animals and people – emerges a richer appreciation for its allure and a heightened sense of awe at its beauty.
