Astrological Review of Covid-19: the Year When Things Fell Apart
with Beverly Feldt
CLASS TIME EXTENDED UNTIL 9 PM.
Are you curious about what could have caused the chaos of 2020? Starting with a focus on the United States Sibley horoscope for July 4, 1776, we will review the major astrological patterns of the year and how they impact the United States at moments when the patterns are exact. In addition to the “plague year” of 2020, other themes include moral gravity, danger and the need for courage; titanic struggle; the rise of reactionary forces; disintegration of systems; the extremes of wealth and poverty; a drive for moral regeneration; and finally at the winter solstice the emergence of deep change that will take time to manifest as the existing order continues to collapse. During the second half, the group will have time to reflect upon how these themes have manifested in our lives and about “the state of the world: 2020” and what might emerge in the near future. This class will be offered remotely.

Origins of the Middle East Conflict
with Charles Mamane
In this course, we will explore the state of the Middle East and trace its history from the end of the First World War to the present. Many people do not realize that the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East originated during World War I with The Balfour Declaration, which is regarded as one of the most controversial and contested documents in the modern history of the Arab world and has puzzled historians for decades. With this declaration, Britain publicly pledged to establish "a national home for the Jewish people", but for the Palestinians, it resulted in what they call the Nakba – the Catastrophe.
Whisky Demystified #1 - the single malts
with David Watts
Join Director David Watts to learn more about uisge beatha, the water of life. Have you wanted to know the difference between whisky and whiskey? One of David’s many interests is his heritage. So we will concentrate our discussion this time primarily on single malts from the land of his ancestors, Scotland. You’ll get to know a bit of the history and the process of making whisky. You’ll hear many of the factors that help determine a flavour profile of that wonderful amber liquid you pour a generation or more after it was distilled. If you are a novice and want to know what bottle to start with; if you are experienced and want to share your love of whisky with a group; or if you just love an Old Fashioned made with ‘well’ whisky and want to up your game, then join us! Note: this is not a tasting, simply a discussion. (100% of the fee goes toward adult ed academic scholarships)
