We are what we have always imagined ourselves to be. The imagination has been limited or conditioned by a culture which sees itself as, at best, minimally well or happy. We must outgrow the cultural conditionings that discourage our continual growth and expand our range of motion, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will explore the myths of aging which prevent our becoming more expansive. We will look at our life-style choices, modify or expand them. We will look at changing diet to accommodate our new bodies. We will reaffirm ourselves as dynamic beings. The needs of each student will be acknowledged.

Some music teachers may not want you to know this, but you don't need years of weekly lessons to learn piano. In just a few hours, you can learn enough secrets of the trade to give you years of musical enjoyment. How do we do it? While regular piano teachers teach note reading, piano professionals use chords. You can learn all the chords you'll need to play any song in this one session, any song, any style, any key. If you can find middle C and know the meaning of Every Good Boy Does Fine, you already know enough to enroll in this workshop. Topics will include: - How chords work in a song - How to get more out of sheet music by reading less of it - How to form the three main types of chords - How to handle different keys and time signatures - How to avoid "counting" - How to simplify over 12,000 complex chords

NREL 113C - Parallel Teachings of Jesus, Lao Tzu, Buddha, and Krishna

When we look past the religious and cultural phrasings, the philosophy of these unique teachers is remarkably similar. Was this ancient wisdom simply common knowledge passed along the Silk Road or did these teachings come from a higher source? If so, what are the ecumenical implications? Did Jesus travel and study in the East during his 'missing' years as some scholars suggest? We will also explore the concept that yoga and other Eastern practices are 'the science of connecting to God.'

NREL 118C - Negotiating With God

Adam, Noah, Abraham and Moses had unique relationships with their Creator. In turn the 'exasperated parent' reacts to their unexpected behaviors. These interactions reflect our dealings with God. These four are showing us an omniscient God who has regrets, who seems willing to engage in give and take. How can these interactions deepen our relationship with God?

NREL 128C - Jesus Among Other Gods: The Absolute Claims Of The Christian Message

Are all religions equally valid? Can one determine spiritual truth? Does humanity even need God? Don't Buddha, Mohammed and Jesus all merely represent different paths to the same God? In the book Jesus Among Other Gods, Christian philosopher Ravi Zacharias tackles these kinds of tough questions. Join Pastor Bill Wendell as we use Zacharias' study to respectfully and honestly examine how life's most important questions are answered by Jesus among other Gods. This four week class will focus on Jesus' distinctive response to these questions: -What is truth and how does it relate to faith and reason? -How can I satisfy the deepest hungers in my life? -Why is there suffering? -Is there a design for the universe, for my life? While not required, this discussion oriented class will draw from Ravi Zacharias' book and study guide entitled "Jesus Among Other Gods."

NREL 129C - Light, Love, and Silence: Mysticism in Christianity

The quest for direct personal experience of divine presence, often called mysticism, is a perennial topic in religious traditions. This course presents individuals whose lives and writings offer insight into mysticism in Christianity. Beginning with 3rd century C.E. Egypt and extending into the modern period, we will consider ideas about prayer, meditation, contemplation, ascetic discipline, ecstasy, spiritual transformation, etc. Declared to be 'beyond images and words,' direct experience of the divine nevertheless evokes powerful symbolic expressions to convey a sense of the experience. Persons/topics include: Origen of Alexandria, Anthony of Egypt, Gregory the Great, Hugh of Saint-Victor, the Franciscan Tradition (Francis and Bonaventure), John of the Cross, Jacob Boehme, the Prayer of the Heart, and Thomas Merton.
