the Internal Struggle: Four Steps to Listening
to Your Intuition
you tired of feeling conflicted inside when making
a decision? Do you wish someone would just tell
you the right answer? In this workshop, Angela

the answer within you. The wisdom lies in your

to, and trusting yourself.

have increased global organizing to end all forms
of violence against women and girls at the grassroots
levels, with arts and cultural resources, in solidarity
with other women from the Global South, working
through International NGO's (non-governmental
organizations) and the United Nations. Given the
numerous forms of and escalating violence against
women and girls in the U.S. and around the world,
women are stepping up to say NO, not in my name!
Our goal in this lively, engaging, hopeful and
interactive workshop will be to learn from, and
exchange information with, women organizing locally
and globally about ways to prevent and end personal,
institutional and structural violence that incorporate
multiple, intersecting forms of discrimination.

Fermenter's Alternative to Traditional Composting
is a fermenting alternative
to traditional composting, employing effective
microorganisms to zombify/pickle/bokashi (all
synonymous) food waste in preparation for rapid
decomposition in a compost pile or in soil. Do
you have some veggie and fruit scraps ...maybe
some bacon grease....the rest of your kid's hamburger...egg
shells from your neighbor's free range chickens....wool
from shearing ....feathers from that skanky old
down pillow...some yogurt you found in the back
of your fridge? Join Kathleen Rauch and find out
how all of this can be fermented using bokashi
and then returned to the earth to make luscious,
rich, soil, either for planting or just good karma.
Amazingly, the process only takes about
a month from fork to soil.
with Holiday Stress?
stress can be difficult at any time during the
semester, but it is particularly challenging during
the holidays. Juggling school, finals, work, and
family along with turkey dinners, shopping, and
travel plans creates an added level of stress.

and Psychological Services, will address stress
management techniques that can be used all year
long, and will be particularly useful during the

in short supply."
