Interdependence

$25

with Lena Faber

Calendar Next session starts Nov 1, 2018 at 6:30 pm, runs for 2 weeks

We live in a society that has recently been traveling for a longer time and over longer distances. When the traveler leaves home for a while, he puts himself more or less in the same situation as a Buddhist monk - dependent on people’s kindness. What do these people get in return? They learn lessons from travelers that they can’t get from home: how to have a minimalist attitude such as reducing consumption in food and housing, how to save energy, and ways to improve health, endurance, and fitness. In this class, we will discuss these topics and more. Registration $25. 2 wks 6:30-8:00 p.m. Begins Thurs 11/1 CHRHS Rm 210 Lena Faber is a native of Russia who spent many years as a journalist for major Moscow newspapers and magazines.

Japanese Haiku

$25

with Kristen Lindquist

Calendar Next session starts Nov 7, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

The centuries-old Japanese haiku has become one of the most universally popular poetic forms, in part because of its simplicity of form -- three, unrhymed lines totaling 17 syllables. You might think any first-grader could write a haiku, but there’s a lot more going on than just counting syllables! In this introductory workshop, we will look at the long tradition of haiku as nature poem. Over the two evenings, we will explore the history of the form, read classic Japanese haiku in translation, and practice techniques for writing and sharing our own short poems. Registration $25. 2 weeks 6:00-8:00 p.m. Begins Wed 11/7 CHRHS Rm 225 Kristen Lindquist is a published poet from Maine who thinks most people would be surprised by how much they would enjoy contemporary poetry if they only saw more of it. In addition to her poetry, she writes a monthly nature column for Pen Bay Pilot and a daily haiku blog.
