A discussion about how culture informs us at a deep level and how to respond with creativity and grace to our current situation, with Kimball Pier, Friday, May 15, 10 a.m., For Goodness Sake, Downtown Truckee.During the past 150 years, beginning with the Industrial Revolution, our Western culture has swung wildly between excess and lack. Notable examples are the Jazz Age of the 1920s followed by The Great Depression and what we are experiencing right now. We are a culture in its collective adolescence. As such, we as individual members respond as a part of it. This talk will focus on how we, as individual members of a collective feed the emptiness with excess and what we can do right now to participate in stopping the swing and bring ourselves into communion with gentleness, balance and love. Kimball Pier is a licensed marriage and family therapist and substance abuse counselor, and is completing a PhD in depth psychology.Seating is limited so reservations are highly suggested. Call Jeannine at 550-0758 or e-mail happygoldens@sbcglobal.net to reserve a place. Donations suggested.

Each night we drift off to sleep believing the trials of the day have ended. Little do we realize how we will awaken to a world that is upside down and topsy-turvy. Nothing is what it appears to be and everything we encounter is a reflection us. Freud called dreaming a peculiar form of thinking made possible by the conditions of sleep. When analyzing dreams, we discover clues about the pathway ahead where dreams often become prophetic, Kari Hohne writes in her book, The Minds Mirror: Dream Dictionary and Translation Guide. Dreaming portrays inner dynamics as we move toward change to achieve lasting success and empowerment. The landscape, lighting and all symbols, no matter how bizarre, offer profound direction about our attempts at transformation. Being more active during times of crisis, dreams reveal how unhappiness is simply the hunger pain for change. Hohne will be conducting a dream interpretation workshop at the Lake Tahoe Wellness Center, 695 Wolf Street in Kings Beach on Sunday, May 24, from 1 to 3 p.m. Using actual examples from research conducted through her Web site: http://www.wayofdreams.com, participants will learn how to decipher the three cycles of any dream: conflict, creation and resolution. To reserve your seat, RSVP by May (530) 559-7016. Tuition: $25.
