Music,
Other
(Women Waging Love: same workshop with female-only participants) The many challenges of our world can feel overwhelming. Every one of us has knowledge and skills that can help build healthier communities, but we don’t always know where to start or how to plug in. This engaging, interactive workshop is like a visit to an artistic and inspiring civic engagement coach. It is designed for people who want to build a personal road map in a safe, respectful space with some guidance and in connection with others. Through individual writing and reflection, compelling exercises, group discussion, and live and recorded music, we will cover: individual values, priorities and hopes; debunking the myths of a perfect solution and single charismatic leader; accepting, carrying and passing on a torch; letting one’s heart lead (not one’s ego); allowing for the messiness of collaboration; appreciating common threads as well as differences; and specific strategies and places to wage love in the civic arena. Step in, step up: we are the leaders we’ve been waiting for.

Carpenter, Margot The Underground Railroad in New York City--the Big Meaning Then, the Big Meaning to Us Now History,
Life Skills- Other
We describe places and courageous people of the Underground Railroad in New York City. In the early 1800s, a battle went on. It was of men and women, black and white, who wanted people to be free; and those intent on capturing them, to send them back to their “owners,” likely to be tortured, often to be killed, often sold to plantations far South. Our basis is the education Aesthetic Realism, founded by the great American poet and philosopher Eli Siegel. Aesthetic Realism explains this battle was between two ways of self, our own selves. It’s the battle of respect for the world and people, the desire to be fair to them, see meaning and value in people; and contempt for the world and people. Slavery, we’ll show, arises from contempt; the forces of the UGRR stood for respect. This was what the Civil War was about. Studying this we have the thrilling ability to learn about ourselves through history. Wrote Eli Siegel: "The fight, Shall I see the world and people with contempt or respect? is the fight within every individual right now; it is our constant, inward, personal civil war." Includes a re-enactment of an escape!
