This series is for those interested in deepening their relationship with themselves, each other, and their family through creative engagement with food-related activities. The classes will offer an opportunity for discovering and mapping the wisdom of your ancestors through the lens of food, as well as a deeper examination of how their attitudes and beliefs have influenced you today. This will include an exploration of family traditions and rituals to discard, cultivate, or create anew. As a result of this series, you will have a clearer understanding about how to perpetuate your lineage through conscious action and spirit. The final class, a recipe exchange and ancestral potluck, will be held off-campus in Carbondale.

Standing Tall in the Presence of a Bully @ CMC in Carbondale
Jul 17 @ 6:00 pm – 8:50 pm

Photo of instructor Fred DonaldsonTeacher Fred Donaldson, Ph.D., will help students develop methods for countering fear with love through a non-contest, highly kinesthetic form of play, developed by Dr. Donaldson over the past few decades, called Original Play. Recognized internationally for his work, Dr. Donaldson has used Original Play to catalyze cooperation among street children in Singapore and Brazil, prison inmates in South Africa, gangs in New York and Los Angeles, and Syrian refugees in Lebanon. (For an introduction, watch episode 10 of the PBS documentary The Promise of Play). Using this method, Dr. Donaldson has repeatedly facilitated reconciliation among bullies and their victims in some of the toughest schools in the world. By practicing Original Play in a workshop setting, students will learn this unusual and highly effective method for building trust and cooperation within their own communities. The workshop meets in Carbondale on Fri., July 17 (6-9p), and Sat. & Sun. July 18-19 (9a-4p). Students must register by July 1.
