TELOS - The Arts and Community Identity

One of the main focuses of “The Arts and Community Identity” is on the rapidly changing perception of community. The arts are used as the lens through which we examine and discuss the economic, social, cultural, and political ramifications that a community experiences due to the presence or absence of artists and arts organizations. The course includes an historic component as we review the impact the arts have had during the last six decades; an economic component as we examine the ways in which the economies of various parts of the U.S. grow and shrink due to the business of film, music, art and theater. Moreover, a significant local component is introduced, as we explore what might happen to the Seattle Metro’s identity as current growth impacts arts organizations and artists.

Animal Communication Workshop

Students learn how animals communicate with each other as well as how to enhance human/animal relationships. Students do exercises to deepen intuition and learn telepathy: sending and receiving pictures, words and feelings. Students start with very basic questions with the first animal. Then the students move on to working with pictures to communicate with animals at a distance. This is a safe environment to develop the telepathic “muscle”. It is reactivating a communication skill set that humans utilized as infants. In this setting, rather quickly, students go from simple images to complex concepts to understand and assist the animal they are communicating with. This environment creates confidence and camaraderie among other like-minded people. Prerequisite: none – everyone welcome.
