    Circling the Sun 
    by Paula McLain

    The story of Beryl Markham, a record-setting aviator caught up in a passionate love triangle with safari hunter Denis Finch-Hatton and Karen Blixen, who as Isak Dinesen wrote the classic memoir Out of Africa. Raised in Kenya, Beryl’s unconventional upbringing transforms her into a bold young woman with a fierce love of all things wild and an inherent understanding of nature’s delicate balance. She forges her own path as a horse trainer and eventually as an aviator. Set against the majestic landscape of early-twentieth-century Africa, the book reveals the extraordinary adventures of a woman before her time, the exhilaration of freedom and its cost, and the tenacity of the human spirit.

    Womanspace is a unique creation -- and a true "Rockford Original." In the early 1970s, the "little dream that could" began to grow into Womanspace, the ongoing, self-creating, life-affirming community that exists today. Whether you are a brand-new member or one who has been around here for decades, we invite you to come and revisit the story of Womanspace as our Co-founder shares photos, stories, trends and challenges that have created and continue to create this vibrant community.

    We recognize that this story is important AND that it is far more than just one woman's perspective -- the big story is contained in many individual stories. More attendance = more perspectives = a more complete picture!

    This series will be repeated as an early evening offering beginning in January. So, if you are unable to come during the day, please look for the January-April evening dates.

    The Fall Equinox is about balance. It's one of two days in the year when there is as much light as there is darkness. It's a time of thankfulness and gratitude for the abundance we have at this time of harvest. Please bring an item or two of non-perishable goods to place on our harvest altar. These items will be distributed to a local service organization in need of food. In closing, we will do a short group meditation and share light refreshments.

    Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy' and describes the energy found in all of life.  An ancient form of hands on energy healing, Reiki is a skill obtained through an attunement (opening) to bring the power of Universal Life Force Energy through the human chakra system.  The energy then is used to balance the body or an object by bringing it into harmony with the universe once again.

    In Reiki One, you will learn the hand positions for self-healing and for the healing treatment of others.  We will talk about the seven major chakras and the history of the Usui System of Natural Healing.  You will receive your first attunement. We will also have time to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes. Bring a sack lunch.

    The name, JOURNEY TO INNER FREEDOM, reflects the goal of writing from the quiet center: to uncover within ourselves an inner freedom, one we did not know we possess. As we discover the hidden resources deep within us, we also find ways to free ourselves of the chains of past destructive behaviors and to learn from the "mistakes" of life. We begin to see that all the material of our life is a rich, exciting learning ground and fertile soil for new, creative works. As this occurs, we find ourselves more and more inwardly free and truly ourselves. By writing from the quiet center, we are able to follow our inner guidance and do the deep inner work our lives require. This workshop will use the journal method of Ira Progroff described in his book, At a Journal Workshop. Bring a sack lunch on Saturday!

    Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
    by Arul Gawande

    Medicine has triumphed in many areas, but in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, consign patients to railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering. Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession’s ultimate limitation, arguing that the quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. He offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person’s last weeks or months may be rich and dignified. Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end.

    The Sympathizer
    by Viet Thanh Nguyen

    The winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, The Sympathizer is a blistering exploration of identity, politics, and America, wrought in electric prose. The narrator, a Vietnamese army captain, is a man of divided loyalties, a half-French, half-Vietnamese communist sleeper agent in America after the end of the Vietnam War. A powerful story of love and friendship, and a gripping espionage novel, it examines the legacy of the Vietnam War in literature, film, and the wars we fight today.

    Meditation is the practice and process of paying attention and focusing your awareness. Whether you are seeking greater focus, less stress and more peace of mind, or a deeper appreciation of the beauty and richness of life, the simple practice of sitting down and turning your attention inward can do wonders! This is a beginning class where different forms of meditation are introduced and practiced in a seated position. Bring a yoga mat or rug if you would like to do this lying down.

    Wednesdays, Sept 20, Oct 18, Nov 15, Dec 13
    Noon-1:30pm

    Facilitator: Elaine Hirschenberger

    Note: In this session of the Oral History of Womanspace series, Elaine will address the history of our commitment to environmental stewardship. It will be presented during our December meeting of EarthMatters Group.

    Womanspace is a unique creation -- and a true "Rockford Original." In the early 1970s, the "little dream that could" began to grow into Womanspace, the ongoing, self-creating, life-affirming community that exists today. Whether you are a brand-new member or one who has been around here for decades, we invite you to come and revisit the story of Womanspace as our Co-founder shares photos, stories, trends and challenges that have created and continue to create this vibrant community.

    We recognize that this story is important AND that it is far more than just one woman's perspective -- the big story is contained in many individual stories. More attendance = more perspectives = a more complete picture!

    This series will be repeated as an early evening offering beginning in January. So, if you are unable to come during the day, please look for the January-April evening dates.
