Shamanism: The Way of Nature
Target Group: Adults (and older students from 16 years
and over) with a good understanding of English.

Shamanism is the orgin of art, religion, and medicine.
All societies practiced it at one time, and some still
do. In this class we'll learn about shamanism of the
past and trace its influence throughout history. And
we'll look at contemporary shamanism, both in
"traditional" tribal societies and among "modern"
people. We'll observe, and meditate on, nature. And
finally, we'll practice several techniques used by
native shamans of Ecuador from the mountains and the
rainforests. Some of the techniques--wairapanga, sopla
de humo--are for stress reduction, while others--sopla
de trago, relampago, and washashungo--are to give
energy. Nathan Horowitz

"We are all the children of a brilliantly colored
flower, a flaming flower. And there is no one who

Reading and Writing Poetry in English
Target Group: Adults and young people (ages 16 and
over) with a good knowledge of written and spoken

This course will follow the typical form of a poetry
workshop. Primarily, we'll study poetry by authors of
the past and present, and we'll read and analyze
students' work, asking, "Is the reader receiving the
message that the author intends to transmit?" Also,
we'll work on our performance skills, and see how this
deepens our appreciation for the material. When we
read poems, we're reawakening a bit of consciousness
that was left there, perhaps long ago. And when we
write, we're leaving a bit of our own souls, and a bit
of our worlds, for others to discover. Nathan
