    Reconstruction and Recovery:  The Post-Civil War South (8 week class)
    Old Dixie was shocked and humiliated by her unexpected defeat at the hands of the detested Yankees.  Incredibly, "The Chivalry" had been beaten by soulless, materialistic Northerners.  How would the loyal sons and daughters of the Confederacy react to the Unthinkable?  Carry on the struggle, or join the modern world and create a commercial, urban culture where cotton and sugar cane once grew?  This class will trace the moral and political struggle post-war Southerners faced in the wake of utter ruin.

    Film screening of CRAZYWISE with conversation afterwards. Bob Banner has
    traveleled to 6 different counties sharing the film nearly 20 times because
    of its groundbreaking treatment of people with alleged "broken brains" and
    how shamanic cultures have treated non ordinary experiences differently and
    with much more compassion. Ex mental patients, holotropic breathworkers,
    mental health workers, mindfulness practitioners and sangomas have initiated
    dialogue with audiences.

  • 01/20/2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

    Back by popular demand, the Dance Palace is excited and proud for the return engagement of jazz pianist and original composer Eric Muhler!

    Eric’s solo act combines both classical music repertoire and his own original compositions with an amazing demonstration of totally improvised music that tends to defy influence and origin.  He taps into deep streams of musicality from all traditions including Western European classical and Americana: from jazz and  blues to rock and funk, romantic melody, chromatic color harmony,  and Latin and African rhythms that combine to transcend, transform, and illuminate.

    Combined with Eric’s funny, intimate, and personal style of narrative, the show provides the listener with what Marin IJ critic  Paul Liberatore called ”little journeys, road trips that twist and turn and reward listeners with surprises around every corner.”  Jazz singer Joe Jacovac may have said it best: "Listening to Eric's music intently can actually change neuron paths in the brain. His quiet side is at home in Nirvana; his adventurous side is a quick path to enlightenment.”

    Tickets $25 general, $20 youth and teens / children and seniors. Doors open at 6:30pm, show begins at 7:00pm

    Location: Main Hall

    Reconstruction and Recovery:  The Post-Civil War South (8 week class)
    Old Dixie was shocked and humiliated by her unexpected defeat at the hands of the detested Yankees.  Incredibly, "The Chivalry" had been beaten by soulless, materialistic Northerners.  How would the loyal sons and daughters of the Confederacy react to the Unthinkable?  Carry on the struggle, or join the modern world and create a commercial, urban culture where cotton and sugar cane once grew?  This class will trace the moral and political struggle post-war Southerners faced in the wake of utter ruin.

    The 2018 Geography of Hope Conference explores the theme of “Finding Resilience in Nature in Perilous Times” on Saturday, March 17, and Sunday, March 18. During these fraught days of political upheaval, social turmoil, and environmental assaults, the gathering explores ways to build emotional and spiritual resilience, using nature as a touchstone.

The presenters  will share their experience and perspectives on ways to find hope, healing, and strength in a troubled world during facilitated panel discussions on Saturday. Attendees will have opportunities to exchange ideas, write and reflect.  
     
     
    Rue Mapp: Rue Mapp is the Founder and CEO of Outdoor Afro, a national nonprofit organization with offices in Oakland, CA, and Washington, D.C.

    The Stuart Dynasty: A 17th Century Soap Opera
    Following their Tudor cousins, the Stuarts reigned for four generations over the 1600s, the most turbulent century in English history: civil war, a time without a king, plague pandemics, and witch hunts ran alongside the Scientific Revolution. England was transforming from a medieval monarchy into a modern state. Living soap opera lives, the Stuart kings and queens, colorful, dramatic, and controversial, gave us riveting stories as they rode the roller coaster of the 17th century.
     
     
    Charlene O’Rourke, MA completed a Master’s in English and, to be practical, chose a career programming mainframe computers for the finance industry. In retirement, she was finally able to return to her first love, 17th century poetry. This led to a dedicated delving into the history of the period and a fascination with the stories of the extraordinary people who invented our modern world. She has taught popular courses on Early Modern England for four years to the students of Sonoma State University’s OLLI program.

England was transforming from a medieval monarchy into a modern state. Living soap opera lives, the Stuart kings and queens, colorful, dramatic, and controversial, gave us riveting stories as they rode the roller coaster of the 17th century.
     
     
    Charlene O’Rourke, MA completed a Master’s in English and, to be practical, chose a career programming mainframe computers for the finance industry. In retirement, she was finally able to return to her first love, 17th century poetry. This led to a dedicated delving into the history of the period and a fascination with the stories of the extraordinary people who invented our modern world. She has taught popular courses on Early Modern England for four years to the students of Sonoma State University’s OLLI program.

    The Stuart Dynasty: A 17th Century Soap Opera
    Following their Tudor cousins, the Stuarts reigned for four generations over the 1600s, the most turbulent century in English history: civil war, a time without a king, plague pandemics, and witch hunts ran alongside the Scientific Revolution. England was transforming from a medieval monarchy into a modern state. Living soap opera lives, the Stuart kings and queens, colorful, dramatic, and controversial, gave us riveting stories as they rode the roller coaster of the 17th century.
