Wilson Museum February Vacation Day-Camp (Tue. 20 Feb, 2018 8:00 am - 9:00 am)

Title:             February Vacation Day-Camp

Date/Time:   February 20-23, 8:30am--12:30pm

Location:      Wilson Museum: Hutchins Education Center

112 Perkins Street, Castine, ME

Ahoy Matey! The Wilson Museum is hosting a February vacation day-camp Museum by the Sea: An Ocean of Activities for grades 1-8, beginning Tuesday, February 20, through Friday, February 23 (8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) at the Hutchins Education Center on Perkins Street in Castine.

We’ll follow in the wake of historic vessels 100 years ago, “sailing” above the Arctic Circle like the schooner Bowdoin, to learn about sea creatures and the natural resources of that region.  On another voyage, we will “visit” tropical islands such as Barbados to explore ships, shells and sailors’ valentines. There’ll be lots of hands-on activities as well as outdoor games and adventures, so campers should bring weather appropriate clothing.

One thing campers won’t need to bring is lunch. The Museum, with a little help from camp participants, will provide lunch each day. The four-day menu and registration form are on the Museum’s website www.wilsonmuseum.org/calendar.html. And, as always, parents are invited to attend and participate. Cost per child to attend Museum by the Sea is $15 for all four days or $5 per day for individual days. Space is limited. Call 207-326-9247 or email:  [email protected] for more information.

Learn the Ancient Art of Drop Spinning Yarn (Tue. 20 Feb, 2018 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

Come learn to spin wool yarn on a drop spindle with Amy Reisman

Ellsworth, Maine—You are invited to come learn the ancient art of spinning wool with a drop spindle. This technique is thousands of years old.  The technology that is required is simply a wooden dowel (the shaft,) a disc with a center hole (the whorl,) a hook or notch, and a length of carded wool. That’s it. All necessary items will be provided at the class.

This relaxing hobby was once the initial manufacturing process for all fabric. Drop spinning predates the spinning wheel by about 9000 years. Amy Reisman will be teaching this craft at the Beth Wright Cancer Resource Center free of charge to anyone who is interested.

The first lesson will include assembling the drop spindle, learning about the properties of wool fiber and spinning with the “Park and Draw” method.

This craft can fit easily into a pocketbook and go anywhere. Waiting rooms and car rides can be great place to practice this time-honored craft.

The classes are scheduled to take place on Tuesdays, February 13, 20, 27 and March 6, from 2:00 – 3:45 pm. Call the Center with any questions or to register 207-664-0339.

Feldman gives talk about racism, health, and the epidemiology of police violence (Tue. 20 Feb, 2018 4:10 pm - 5:10 pm)

Since the 19th century, some scientists have explained the relatively poorer health of black and indigenous peoples as a product of their innate, biological inferiority compared to whites. Yet, opponents of this theory have long argued that the health disparities are rooted in inequalities in wealth and power, not differences in genetic constitution. In his talk, Feldman will trace the history of these debates over race and health to the present, and in doing so will present original research on the connection between police violence and racial health inequities.  “The events of the last few years, from Ferguson to Charlottesville, show us unambiguously that racial disparities in this country persist and that white supremacist movements are growing,” said COA professor of global environmental politics Doreen Stabinsky. “

Justin’s talk will provide important perspective on a timely issue.” Feldman is a social epidemiologist and doctoral candidate at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences. His work examines the ways in which structural racism and economic inequality influence population health, particularly in regard to interpersonal and state violence. In March 2018 he begins working at NYU School of Medicine Department of Population Health as Assistant Professor of Epidemiology. The College of the Atlantic Diverse Voices Series highlights the rich tapestry of races, cultures, and viewpoints that comprise our shared human experience. Funded with a generous, anonymous grant, the COA Diverse Voices Series sponsors a broad range of speakers and events throughout the year that serve to illuminate our collective challenges and commonalities.

Feldman’s presentation is funded in part by the COA Thoreau Environmental Leaders Initiative Location: College of the Atlantic, McCormick Lecture Hall, 105 Eden Street Bar Harbor Contact John Visvader at [email protected] with questions.

Mindfulness Meditation Group New Spiritual Offering (Tue. 20 Feb, 2018 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm)

BANGOR, ME – The Unitarian Universalist Society of Bangor (UUSB) is pleased to offer a new spiritual option for the greater Bangor community, the Mindfulness Meditation Group.

Rev. Andrew Moeller shares, “In today’s fast-paced world where the convenience of the digital age is at our fingertips, it is easy to feel disconnected, task-oriented, and we lose the value of being present. This group is designed to create an intentional community where one can develop his or her own meditation practice in a friendly, non-judgmental community. No experience is necessary.”

The Mindfulness Meditation Group starts on Tuesday February 20 and will meet monthly on the first and third Tuesday night from 5:45 - 7 pm.

The style of meditation will be primarily based on Vipassana or insight meditation which is designed to sharpen awareness, reduce stress and develop mindful and wholesome practices for daily life. This meditation technique is compatible with all religious traditions including those who are not religious at all, and those who are simply exploring a more engaged and less stressful lifestyle.

“The sessions will consist of a combination of sitting and walking meditations and weekly Dharma discussions,” says Rev. Drew. “In addition, the program is designed to be flexible and participants are not obligated to come to every session. We just ask that you bring a meditation cushion, a thick blanket or yoga mat to use for sitting meditation. Chairs are available to those who do not wish to sit on the floor.”

There is no cost to join the group but donations to UUSB are appreciated. For more information, please contact Rev. Andrew Moeller at [email protected] or 947-7009.
