Today's Events

From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly. With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

This class explores the state of being nonjudgmental while practicing awareness of how things are manifesting within you and around you. During all these techniques, you’ll learn how the environment is a key to healing with a vibrational upload and how your breathing is the anchor of wayward attention.

Come explore these questions in a day-long retreat introducing Wisdom Ways’ two-year Transforming Soul and Society Program.

“Photography for Life” is a series of nature photography courses that uses the rules of composition to discuss how to compose both our images and our lives in a more intentional way. Nature photography gives us a tool for being more aware of the beauty around us, which opens us up to new understandings of ourselves and our connection to the world. In this workshop, we will explore and express complex ideas, expand curiosity, experiment with creativity, and embark on new adventures with nature photography as our guide. From classroom instruction and group discussion, to hands-on experience, we will focus our minds, practice self-care, and express ideas in a creative, adventurous, and intentional way. No matter your photographic experience, skill level, or style of camera, there will be something to be gained, as this is not a technological workshop, but a deeper exploration of how we experience life. This session is all about simplicity, which will create a clearer focus for your images and your wellness routines.

Raku firing is an exciting ceramics-firing technique in which you quickly heat a piece of pottery, remove it from the kiln when the glaze has melted, and place it in a bucket of wood shavings, which can be explosive! Ceramic artist Laremy Ellsworth will cover the entire process of Raku firing, from preparing the piece for glazing to cleaning the piece after the firing. You’ll learn about how different glazes react to this unique firing process to result in striking effects and one-of-a-kind pieces. Best of all, you’ll create your own piece to take home. Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll understand why ‘Raku’ translates to ‘enjoyment.’

Susan B. Anthony, a famed suffragette, and Frederick Douglass, a former slave who became a renowned civil rights leader, were friends and allies–and sometimes, adversaries. This is the story of their enduring and tempestuous 45-year friendship, from the Civil War through the changing of the Constitution. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and today, they challenge and inspire us. Signe V. Harriday directs the regional premiere of this historical drama by Mat Smart.
