-Sat. Dec. 13th, 12-5pm, Responding to Traumatic Events
This course will cover biological/physiological responses to extreme events and will explore ways to prepare and condition ourselves to thrive and survive. There will be lecture/discussion and practical application. Brings snacks, etc and materials to take notes if desired (part of the Action Training Fall 2014 Calendar Presented by Santa Cruz Forest Keepers).
-Sun. Dec. 14th, 5-6:30pm, Singing Playshop with Kasia Moon!
Learn techniques to develop the sounds you want to make with your beautiful body. This includes safe singing practices, a healthy breathing method, and games to loosen up creativity as it lends itself towards songwriting, improvisation, and oral presentation. Best of all -- Connect with friends old and new in a sweet community space safe for making silly sounds! If you've never ever sung a note, this is the place to be. If you find yourself singing the same notes over and over and want to expand your breadth, you're going to love this. If you've gone all over the place and want to hone in on what is true for you, yes come! Everyone will have plenty of chances to sing AND listen, and learn ways to get creative with what comes out of their pretty mouths.
Please bring a pen or pencil, paper, a reusable cup if you have one (for throat tea!), your ideas, friends, and a sense of adventure. This event is free of cost, though donations are appreciated!
