QUILLING:  Jeanie Grabka will be introducing us to a new art form - Quilling, which is the art of rolling narrow pieces of paper, forming shapes, and gluing them closed.  The shapes are then put together to make earrings, greeting card, pictures, or mobiles.  The class will make several projects; your imagination is all that is needed.  Bring a small pair of scissors and a 12" ruler.  Paper, quilling tool and glue will be provided.  

IMPROVER/INTERMEDIATE LINE DANCING:  This class is mainly for those folks with skill levels well above “Beginners.”  Vicki Little  wantl you to know all are welcome.  This session takes the joy of Line Dancing to another level with our resident “pro” Vicki, leading the way.  Come join us and have FUN!

 

LIVING & DYING – OPPOSITES? Living and dying are as opposite as science is to spirit and yet we live life between these dynamic forces My Near-death experience has asked me and others who have had NDEs this question: is life science or spirituality? After two separate Near-Death Experiences and several years of reading listening to what other NDrs discovered, coupled with new and rediscovered evidence from anthropologists and archeologists, I have produced a course based on these findings and ideas.

  This course includes:

  • Does the science of human development force change, (natural selection), and is it coupled with a changing universe or does the change cause the universe to expand

  • OR does the development of spirituality cause mankind to not simply exist but exist on new levels?

  • If mankind’s need to create forcing spiritual change or is the science around mankind forcing mankind to change to exist?

  • We know that when science and spirituality are developing on equal levels, mankind reaches new heights in thought and invention; but when the disparity of science and spirituality are large civilizations and or mankind fail. Our present civilization is experiencing a large gap between science and spirituality, what does this mean for our generation?  

Come join Candace Drake (bio) as she discusses this topic.
