American Sign Language II


with Martin Samelson

Calendar Mar 6, 2018 at 6 pm

ASL II will begin with a brief review of ASL I (basic sign language communication). ASL II is designed to raise your skill level and be a "user-friendly" place to practice the sign alphabet, finger-spelling, numbers, vocabulary (hand-shape, location, movement), and familiar phrases. Our goal is to increase your awareness of Deaf culture and build confidence for communication with Deaf and Hard of Hearing family, friends, co-workers and customers.  Serious high school students, "baby sign" users, and Late-Deafened adults are welcome. Some previous sign language experience is helpful, but not necessary.  Join Martin Samelson, energetic ASL college professor and job coach for the Deaf, in learning how to communicate without voice. ASL is a visual language so no textbook is required. ASL II includes 1 practice sessions prior to start of course, in addition to regularly scheduled classroom lesson. Practice sessions will review ASL I material to increase skill level and preview ASL II material so you can get a running start on new vocabulary and grammar.  Your comfort and skill will increase by attending the practice session.

Quantum Spoon Bending


with Mary Maverick

Calendar Mar 1, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

What is the value of this spoon bending class? If, with very little training, you can easily bend a spoon that you could not easily bend before (if at all), then you can begin to see how powerful you actually are! Learn to access the subtle energy field that surrounds us all. The metal softening mechanisms you will learn in this class are actually quantum mechanics techniques you can transfer to enhance your daily life. This is the same energy field ancient and new age healers are accessing to perform healings and miracles. Learn and practice several different techniques that will not only allow you to bend spoons, but allow you to create other changes in material reality. Learn how healers have been able to mend broken bones instantaneously and see how it might be possible for you to perform miracles in your own life. Mary Maverick is a Licensed Massage Therapist and a 7th generation Reiki Master/Teacher.
