Internal Body Awareness For Women

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014 6:30 pm
3 Thursday workshops presented by Dr. Rhys Preston
To register please contact Dr. Rhys Preston directly at (612)232-1535 or email preston_chiropractic@yahoo.com.  $49.00 per class - $120.00 for all three - Sign a friend up and it's $39.00 per class Please note: For a comprehensive understanding of the material, signup for the entire series is reccommended, but not required. This 3-part women's health series will enable students to gain a thorough understanding of their interactive system of hormones.  In these workshops students will learn how to detect and eliminate food sensitivities and discover cost effective practical applications and solutions to hormonal imbalance. Learning how the female body functions will also empower attendees to make informed decisions regarding their health and wellness. Dr. Preston will provide practical applications and tools to implement immediately. Series overview: Symptoms of insomnia, weight gain especially around the middle, irritability, crying for no reason, sweet and cravings, are all indicators of hormone imbalance.  The original issue may have started with hormonal imbalance, adrenal gland fatigue or thyroid trouble.  All of these issues and symptoms are interrelated and affect one another.  It is impossible to alleviate thyroid issues without fixing the adrenal glands.  When the adrenal glands are fatigued (which are your 'stress handling' glands), the female hormones will be affected negatively resulting in weight gain, irritability, insomnia, hot flashes, fibrocystic breast disease and PCOS.  The most effective approach is to address all three systems, i.e. Adrenal Glands, Female Hormones, and Thyroid.   Class 1, Weds. 10/9:  Adrenal Fatigue: Stress, Survival, Symptoms and Healing - Adrenal fatigue occurs when the amount of stress overextends the capacity of the body (mediated by the adrenals) to compensate and recover from that stress. Once this capacity to cope and recover is exceeded, some form of adrenal fatigue occurs. Learn more about adrenal fatigue, signs and symptoms, coping with stress and solutions to healing.                      Class 2, Weds. 10/16: Balancing Female Hormones NaturallyConfused about female hormones?  Suffer from symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, sweet and carb cravings, weight gain?  Learn the tools to prevent and manage these symptoms.  Your energy levels will improve and the fat will melt off! Class 3, Weds.10/23: Controlling & Regulating MetabolismThe thyroid gland controls the rate at which the body produces energy from food and therefore has a primary effect on overall energy levels.  It regulates digestion, oxygen consumption, and mobilization of fat from storage.  Learn why thyroid issues are difficult to treat, ultimately leading to sluggish energy and weight gain as well as accelerated aging. You will walk away with practical solutions and new paths to health.

Local Lens Series: THE FILMS OF JEFFERSON THOMAS

Friday, October 24th, 2014 7:30 pm
BUY TICKETS HERE A native Wellfleetian, Jefferson Thomas will be sharing 3 of his short films with us including his most recent work in progress, all works of narrative fiction. Jefferson will be present to discuss the development of his vision and style, the filmmaking process and the challenges of making film as a young artist on the Outer Cape. Program: A Little Suspicion - There is something unusual about Jack and Cindy's dinner guest. Jack's suspicions lead him down a rabbit hole of murder and deception. Hard boiled noir with a comedic edge. (Some frightening images. Some foul language.) The Perilous Fortune - A thief and a spy, unaware of each other, both attempt an inside job under the shadow of a sinister diamond trading company. One is in it for quick cash, the other for justice, but will they live long enough to find either? A comedic action adventure.(Violence. Some foul language.) The Dark Alignment (pictured above)- On a cold gray winter day in the late 1800s, a corpse dangles from skeletal branches in the local cemetery. Two men happen upon it during a morning stroll, for one it will mean doom! Gothic Horror.(Frightening images.) About the Filmmaker: Jefferson has been making films on the Cape for most of his life. An active participant in local theater, he has gradually amassed a collective of creative people who support his cinematic vision. Often using the same actors and crew, he has pieced together several films on a shoestring budget. Jefferson owes much of his success to his ongoing collaboration with Thomas Romme, his cinematographer. Jefferson writes, directs, and edits all his films. He is also an aspiring actor, having appeared in productions at WHAT, The Academy Playhouse, and The Provincetown Theater. Jefferson lives in Wellfleet year-round with his girlfriend Merissa.

Fleet Movement Explorations

Sunday, October 26th, 2014 3:00 pm
Drop in dance workshop, by donation
Fleet Movement Explorations is an experimental dance class in which we explore, among other things, developmental movement patterns while sensing ourselves in space, weight, time, and the three dimensions. This is extended to explore the articulation of movement initiations and refinement of body alignments. We play with evoking movement though qualities of feeling, shape, force, idea, word and more. From this basis, we work out interactive improvisational skits. The class is basically informal, challenging, and fun, and a good movement workout. It plays spontaneously with forces, shapes, images, and ideas rather than specific dance technique. At times we will have guest teachers. All are welcome. Lead by Becky Burrill—dancer-choreographer, developmental-creative arts educator, writer, visual artist.
