“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” - World Health Organization. Being healthy takes place on many levels.  We have to consider the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. We can’t ignore any of these levels and expect to be healthy. Being truly healthy is a balance of all the core areas of life. In this workshop we will give realistic, easy-to-follow tips to feeling good and balanced on all these levels.

What’s the key to putting together a great room, one that makes you want to be there?  How do we go about thinking it through?  We start at the beginning:  the outer dimensions, doors, windows and other openings.  Aside from dictating furniture placement by your movements through the room, the room structure usually “asks” for the right combinations.  Learn how to listen to your room in this class. And for the aesthetics of the room, look no further than your own soul.  Let’s learn how to understand what colors, shapes and styles make you feel right in a room, and how to put them together so that they feel right.

From hashtag activism to the flood of political memes, grassroots circulation of opinion online is changing the landscape of political communication. By exploring how everyday people promote messages to persuade their peers and shape the public mind, Joel Penney offers a new framework for understanding the phenomenon of viral political communication: the citizen marketer. In contrast to the “slacktivism” critique often leveled at these media-centered forms of activism, Penney argues that they enable citizens to take on the role of viral political marketers as they participate in the networked spread of ideas.
