Time Management 101

This on-line course will introduce folks to one method of taking most any project or idea and turning it into a set of tasks and timelines, putting these on a calendar and, then, monitoring progress until the project or activity or goal has been accomplished.

The course will be self-paced but each topic/module will include an on-line discussion space for us to discuss issues we are having, and give or get advice (or just chat).

This is one of two courses designed to be self-instuctional but include discussions space that is regularly erased and re-started on a regular schedule (every three months).

Projects or ideas can be of a personal nature (e.g., lose weight) or professional (e.g., update my resume). If you have something you want to accomplish, time management is an essential tool.

Anger workshop: working towards new frameworks for acknowledging, accepting and processing tough feelings together.

I am interested in a space where we can acknowledge, accept, and process anger as a group. I often find that I am not allowed to express anger in ways that are considered appropriate and consensual except when I am alone or one-to-one with a few specific people, and even then, it rarely feels constructive. I end up pushing the feeling down and often feeling shame or guilt for having anger inside me. If we can cry together and laugh together for the benefit of our emotional selves and the interpersonal connections that sharing those emotions brings, I think we can feel our anger in the same way. In addition to expressing anger appropriately, I think there is value in witnessing other people's expressions with the goal of not taking someone elses feelings personally.

 

 

I don't envision this as a therapy space. I am not concerned with where the anger comes from in each person, only that there seems to be a lot of it that our culture chooses to push down.

Reconciling with our Landbase: The Evolving Concept of Bioregionalism

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 17:30 - 22:00
"What would you be willing to give up... what would we gain in return?"

"What would we be willing to give up... what would we gain in return?"

The purpose of this workshop is to view the documentary film ‘Occupied Cascadia’ to inspire transformative thoughts and discussions in relationship to our bioregion with specific attention to the mining threats to our beloved Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW). A discussion with the directors of the film as well as mining and BWCA interest groups will take place immediately after the viewing.

Schedule
5:30 PM - Open discussion
6:30 PM - Screening of 'Occupied Cascadia'
(see the trailer at http://vimeo.com/38078416)
8:30 PM - Panel Discussion until 10:00 PM

***
‘Occupied Cascadia’ is a documentary film exploring the evolving concept of bioregionalism across this land base. Historically, the diverse voices throughout this land have paved the way for many movements. The directors of this film feel that they have captured an essence of this evolving culture. So, what defines the people of this region? Are the people of this region forging a new path?

With resource wars upon us, governments are more oppressive than ever, global economies are destabilizing, corporations and media are continually dividing us and most seem to have some notion of an imminent collapse on the horizon. Are we capable of coming together, and if so, where do our commonalities lie?

The people of Cascadia are diverse in opinions, stories and backgrounds and much like the larger nations we are a part of, we are divided by fundamentalism. What changes must we really make in order to provide for future generations, including the natural world? Explore these concepts and more.

This film was Co-directed and Co-produced by Devin Hess and Mel Sweet, self-taught photographers now transitioning to independent film making.

All music was recorded and produced by Hassan Ali Estakhrian at hassanalimusic.com.

Facilitator's experience: 
Steve is a parent with a diverse background that includes being professionally licensed as an advanced degreed environmental engineer with work experience in various levels of government and corporate america.

Experiment in Collaborative Creativity.

The activities in our group will be experiential.  We will begin with a few warm up exercises to get acquainted and hopefully get in the flow of creative collaboration.  The group includes some personal sharing and reflective writing.   The main activity will be choosing a subject to explore, sharing personal stories related to the subject, then creating a piece of work that represents parts of each members story.  The form of the work is open to our imagination.   The structure of the group evolves as needed and as the collaborative process moves forward.  Decisions are reached by consensus.  What comes out of the collaboration will be ??????.

A few of the questions and explorations inherent in the activities are how to balance individual needs with the needs of the group/community;  how to value and integrate differences and keep conflict stimulating, creative, and productive;  when boundaries inhibit integrative processes and when they promote integration;  what mix of flexibility and holding the line  leads to "successful" co creating,etc. 

Throughout the experiment members are encouraged to evaluate the process on both personal and social levels for discussion when the activities conclude.  The nature of the class/group experiment requires regular attendance for the full 8 weeks in order to build on the previous exercises and  experiences.

Requirements:  Curiousity, a willingness to share personal information related to the chosen subject matter, open to exploring in a non linear fashion, and  respectful interaction, and regular attendance  to derive the full benefit of the collaboration, especially in the earlier weeks of the experient.

Understanding your Personality by combining Myers-Briggs Type Indiator with Eight Archetypes

We will apply the Myers-Briggs Type Incator [MBTI] (will be administered in first class) with eight archetypes that influence our personality. MBTI is a personality inventory to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful. It answers four questions:

How do you direct your energy and attention?   
How do you prefer to take in information?       
How do you prefer to make decisions?             
How do you orient to the outer world?   

We will be examing these archetypes:  
Conscious Archetypes
First - Hero or Heroine - Powerful, effortless energy
Second - Good Parent - Protective, nurturing
Third - Puer/Puella - Playful and passionate
Fourth - Anima/Animus - Inferiority complex and idealization complex

Unconscious Archetypes
Fifth - Opposing Personality - Resistance and denial
Sixth - Witch/Senex - Internal and external critic
Seventh - Trickster - Deceptive saboteur
Eighth - Demon/Daemon - Source of despair and hope
