The Rest of the Story
with Fred Boyle
The course is a continuation of 'The Way We Were'. It will cover the period in American history from the 1930's through the Obama Presidency. The format will weave videos and lecture together. The emphasis will be on politics, headline events, movies, music, best-sellers, you name it. All effort will be made to include vignettes of personal experiences of classmates as we try to recreate the years we all have lived. Fred Boyle in his dotage/prime.
Writing From Memory
with John Forssen
I am thinking most of us are best served writing short pieces, the flesh and bones of which are drawn from our own long memories. They do not need to be autobiographical, but they should draw heavily from our experiences and our subsequent emotional responses. As you might expect, we will be reading and offering hepful comments in class (I do not see myself correcting papers), so each week's offering should be limited to 1,000 words, allowing everone time to present his or her work.
Introduction to Addiction
with Jeff Goldsmith
Brief overiew of the biological, psychological, and sociofamilial dimensions as they influence the development of addiction and the recovery process. I taught this course last fall, 2020, on Zoom. I covered material for alcohol, cannabis, opiod, and stimulant use. The classes began with 30 minutes of didactic and ended with an hour of discussion. I am an Addiction Medicine doctor who ran fellowships for almost 20 years in Cincinnati. I have been certified as a sub specialist in Addiction Medicine, 2018 the last time by the American Board of Preventive Medicine. I was President-elect, President, and Past President of the American Society of Addiction Medicine from 2013-2019.

with Andrea Gleason
Join Andrea Gleason for a gentle 'take it to the mat' Yin Yoga practice. Slow yourself down, quiet your mind and get into your body.
Recommended yoga props: mat yoga blocks, blanket, strap, bolster/firm pillow/rolled up beach towel and props.
By holding poses in a relaxed state, you'll exercise the non-elastic tissues in your body. In other words, your connective tissues: joints, ligaments, tendons, and fascia. Using props to allow you to stop just at your edge of resistance, you will be able to target those cooler components of your body.
Yin Yoga can help to:
- Calm and balance the mind and body
- Regulate energy in the body
- Increase mobility in the body, especially the joints and hips
- Lower stress levels (Phew!)
- Encourage greater stamina
- Enhance lubrication and protection of joints
- Boost your immune system
This class is appropriate for all levels. We will be on the mat for the length of the class.
Andrea Gleason is certified by the Yoga Alliance as a 500 RYT, E-RYT and YACEP. She is also a Master Reiki Practitioner and USATriathlon Coach, Level 1.
Remembering the '50's
with Lorraine Dutile-Masure
One part history, one part personal recollections, one part music of the decade. A return to another time - the golden age of capitalism versus the encroaching concern of communism. At home, happy days of color television, I Like Ike and I Love Lucy, The King and I (Elvis?). And, of course, that ever-pesky, sinful rock and roll parental barter: "Take out the papers and the trash. Or you don't get no spending cash." Yakety yak, don't talk back."
