    What would it take to make you happy? A fulfilling career, a big bank account, or the perfect mate? What if if didn't take anything to make you happy? What if you could experience happiness from the inside out?

    In the middle of the COVID pandemic there is an epidemic of unhappiness. More of us are feeling disconnected and anxious. Statistically it has been estimated that nearly 25% of American women have tried antidepressants in the United States today. What if you could learn skills to stay calm and happy in the midst of uncertainty?

    The workshop “Happy for No Reason” is based on the research of Marci Schimoff, author of several Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Marci began researching the topic of happiness because she was not happy.  I will be sharing the secrets she found through interviewing happy people, and how we learn to have a more rewarding life.

    "Happiness is not something ready made.  It comes from your own actions.”   ~ The Dalai Lama

    In this class 5 week class  we will look at skills that we can develop to achieve happiness and have fun on the journey!

     We will cover:

    Week 1 :  Introduction to the Seven Keys to Building Inner Happiness.

    The skills for this class are broken down into seven parts we'll refer to as keys. Each key will be defined and explained. There will be suggestions for practicing new skills each week.

    Week 2:  Taking Responsibility For Your Happiness.

    The first key to happiness is the understanding that we all must take responsibility for our lives. We will examine ways in which we may have given away our possibility for happiness, and ways to regain our power.

    Week 3:  The Pillar of the Mind / The Pillar of the Heart

    The mind can be a powerful tool for achieving happiness. It makes all the difference in our lives as we learn to use it in our happiness quest.

    We will also look at ways to open our hearts and spread loving kindness to others.

    Week 4:  The Pillar of Body/ The Pillar of the Soul

    We all know that health and happiness are connected.  We will look at ways we can improve our health and help enrich our lives.  Are you connected to a Higher Power? Perhaps it is time to think about strengthening your religious or spiritual practices.

    Week 5:  Living a Life Inspired by Purpose/ Cultivating Nourishing Relationships

    We'll look at ways to add purpose to our lives, giving life a reset. We'll also examine the importance of being selective with the people that we allow into our inner circle, people who will give the support and the love we all deserve.

    Rather than being simple ditties meant to amuse children, the nursery rhymes of the middle ages reveal a practice of hiding the esoteric wisdom of the stars in verse, to sustain their influence, especially through challenging times. In this introduction to Star Lore, Mary Stewart Adams will lead us on a delightful journey of learning to know the stars through some of our most well-loved nursery rhymes, together with the history and origin of the rhymes.

    The Storyteller’s Night Sky is the work of Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams, host of the weekly public radio segment and podcast of the same name, and who, as a global advocate for starry skies, led the team that established the 9th International Dark Sky Park in the world in 2011 at the Headlands, in her home state of Michigan.

    Mary has received numerous honors for her work advocating for dark skies, combining her extensive knowledge of ancient mythologies with nearly 40 years of researching anthroposophy, with a particular emphasis on the human experience of starry worlds as it is expressed in the astrology of the ancients, the astronomy of the scientific revolution, and the astrosophy that has developed through an application of spiritual science to the relationship between the human being and the cosmos. She travels far and wide teaching her humanities-based approach to understanding the celestial world around us, and the cultural influence of star knowledge through the ages.

    First session ~ Hey Diddle Diddle in the Stars

    Rather than being simple ditties meant to amuse children, the nursery rhymes of the middle ages reveal a practice of hiding the esoteric wisdom of the stars in verse, to sustain their influence, especially through challenging times. In this introductionto Star Lore, Mary Stewart Adams will lead us on a delightful journey of learning to know the stars through some of our most well-loved nursery rhymes, together with the history and origin of the rhymes.

    Second session ~ Once Upon a Star

    Once upon a time every star had a name, and in every name was a story. In this session, we will seek the stars in cultural fairy tales from around the world, and how the practice of storytelling with the stars is used to impart moral wisdom by cultivating vivid imaginations in listeners both young and old. 

    Third session ~ Star Lore and Ancient Mythologies

    From rhymes to tales to mythologies, the stories we tell through the ages reveal our understanding of, and relationship to, the world around us. Nowhere is this more evident than in the dramatic mythologies of ancient cultures which were aligned to the stars overhead. We will explore the cultural mythologies of the ancient world, including those of Egypt, Greece, and others, in relation to the stars overhead now.

    Fourth session ~ History of Star Knowledge from Astrology, to Astronomy, to a New Star Wisdom

    From the civilization-forming influence of the stars evidenced in ancient cultures, to the dramatic shift in humanity's relationship to the celestial world dating from the scientific revolution in the 16th century, we arrive in contemporary culture, where light pollution diminishes views of the sky for most of the world's population.  In this session, we will consider the role of star lore in cultivating an appreciation for cultural diversity, and learn about the consequences in human culture, and for the Earth, of being cut off from the stars.

    The Storyteller’s Night Sky is the work of Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams, host of the weekly public radio segment and podcast of the same name, and who, as a global advocate for starry skies, led the team that established the 9th International Dark Sky Park in the world in 2011 at the Headlands, in her home state of Michigan.

In class, we will read short selections of writing to see what techniques we can beg, borrow, and steal from them. We will experiment with in-class writing exercises and read and discuss each other's work. Writing can be inventive, illogical, chaotic, unexpected, strange, and wonderful. In this class, we will practice seeing the world in new ways and then recreating that experience on the page.

    From the soothing melody of "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder to the wailings of Spaghetti Western themes from Ennio Morricone, the sound of the chromatic harmonica permeates our musical culture. Unlike diatonic harmonicas which can only play the notes of a given scale, a chromatic harmonica can play all the notes of the chromatic scale thanks to a button-activated sliding bar. Begin your chromatic journey with beginning techniques that are reinforced through both weekly exercises, and just playing and having fun. Class is open to all levels. A 21/2 to 4 octave chromatic harmonica with slide is required.

    Current events have brought race and race relations to the forefront of our social and political dialogues but the taboos around talking about race leave many of us unprepared to engage with these topics in an informed manner. The aim of this course is to be better prepared to engage in productive and meaningful conversations about race and racism. This will require a willingness to be uncomfortable, even disturbed, as we challenge our deeply held beliefs and systems of thought but we will be rewarded by learning to create inviting spaces to engage in conversations about race by emphasizing respect, humility, and forgiveness. The ultimate goal of this course is to enable us to recognize systems of inequalities and foster productive dialogue in order to change them.
