Throughout history angry women have been instigators of
major change. This course examines nine women in Western history who have been
motivators and change agents, including Angelina and Sarah Grimké, Mary Harris
(aka “Mother Jones”), Emmeline Pankhurst, “Flo” Kennedy,
Bella Abzug, and Cecile Richards. The common themes running through these
women’s lives, and how their “behaving badly” has served to promote
social change and justice will be discussed. While the readings for September
and October will be provided, students will need to acquire the biographies of
the other women, plus the final book: Rebecca Traister’s Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger. These books
will be available (for a discount) at Bridgeside Books in Waterbury. Led by Sue
Mehrtens

Do you want to write personal stories or a family history?

you give some order and focus to memories you want to preserve. Join a small
group in seeing your memoir take shape in a five-week course. Limited to 10 students.

55 Clover Lane, Waterbury; $80; registration required; to register, call Sue
(802) 244-7909

Carl Jung and a wide variety of spiritual traditions are
clear that the soul’s journey does not end in death. Many of these traditions
also speak of reincarnation, and in this course we examine such topics as life
after life, reincarnation, possible past lifetimes, and phenomena like the
Bardo and karma. Participants will be taught several techniques for accessing
their past lives, and a special workshop will provide a hands-on experience of
drawing on past life memories. Led by Sue Mehrtens and Cecile Leriche, LCMHC

Journal Keeping, Mondays,

required; to register, call Sue (802) 244-7909

Research has proven that keeping a journal encourages faster
healing, improves mental health, and allows journal keepers to feel more in
control of their lives. Journals have been a tool for creativity not only in
writing and the arts but in the sciences and mathematics. And it’s fun! Join
our small group in breaking out of the “oughts” and “shoulds”
of diary keeping and experience a broad range of possibilities for your journal
life. Limited to 10 students. No previous experience necessary. Led by Ann
Turkle, MFA, Ph.D.

Using myths, legends and the powerful symbolism of the
personal chart, participants will discover how archetypes operate in individual
lives, their own and in the lives of ordinary people whose charts illustrate
mythic themes particularly well. No prior background in astrology is required.
This courses comes with 8 CEUs for therapists. Led by Sue Mehrtens
