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

: regrets what we are." --Huichol Indian song

Reading and Writing Poetry in English

: Target Group: Adults and young people (ages 16 and

: over) with a good knowledge of written and spoken

: English.


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

: Horowitz
