Mudra is Sanskrit for seal, mark, or gesture. Mudras hand gestures are used during meditation as a way to direct energy flow in the body. According to yoga, different areas of the hand can stimulate specific areas of the brain. By applying light pressure to these areas of the hand, you are able to activate the corresponding region of the brain. Different positions of the hand will improve memory, eyesight, and hearing. It also has a calming effect. This class will begin with gentle stretches and acupressure for relaxation followed by Mudras, meditation and music. This will be facilitated by Town of Barnstable Public Health Nurse, Peg Stanton.

There are also studies that show meditation can actually slow the progression of dementia and mild cognitive impairment. Take some time for yourself and de-stress. Instructor is Kay Outwin.

The visit included Ruaha National Park in the south and the beautiful coast of Tanzania. Elephants, leopards, giraffe, giant porcupine were just a few of the animals seen on the trip. On their own, Susan and her husband went on to the western edge of Tanzania to Gombe Stream National Park where research continues with the chimpanzees Jane Goodall studied for many years.

Instructor: Mark Bowie

Day: April 27-April 30

Time: Times Vary (starts 4/27 6:00pm, ends 4/30 12noon)

This workshop will also be held Oct 19-22nd

With intricate details in the landscape and sky — from the brilliant orange-golds of sunrise to the theatrical colors of sunset, the luminous blues of twilight and the otherworldy light of midnight — the latest digital technologies allow photographers to push the bounds of what can be captured with a camera.  Creative vision and good field craft are also paramount to creating compelling images.  In this power-packed workshop, professional nature photographer Mark Bowie will examine in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to create expressive imagery.  He’ll also share processing techniques to convey the desired effect.

Mark will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, marshes, woods, lighthouses and fishing villages.  During indoor instructional sessions, he’ll explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll cover field and digital darkroom methods for:

  Reading weather and shooting the light
  Shooting at sunrise and sunset, twilight and at night
  Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  Previsualizing images for artistic result
  Seeing from different vantage points
  Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  Determining exposure at night
  Achieving critical focus
day and night
  Using Live View
  Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  Targeting color and tonal palettes
  The artistry of long exposures
  Creating expressionistic abstracts
  Planning and shooting multiple exposures: layer masks, panoramas, HDR’s, star trails and time-lapse sequences
  Focus stacking
to maximize depth of field
  Blending multiple exposures with state-of-the-art software

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to learn to envision the image-making potential of a variety of landscapes and translate it into compelling imagery.  Join Mark to explore wonders of the Cape — from dawn to deep night.

The Art of Seeing Creatively: The Cape from Dawn to Deep Night
Instructor: Mark Bowie

Day: April 27-April 30

Time: Times Vary (starts 4/27 6:00pm, ends 4/30 12noon)

This workshop will also be held Oct 19-22nd

With intricate details in the landscape and sky — from the brilliant orange-golds of sunrise to the theatrical colors of sunset, the luminous blues of twilight and the otherworldy light of midnight — the latest digital technologies allow photographers to push the bounds of what can be captured with a camera.  Creative vision and good field craft are also paramount to creating compelling images.  In this power-packed workshop, professional nature photographer Mark Bowie will examine in-depth the fine art of seeing, offering innovative strategies, tips and techniques for looking deeper, refining your personal vision to create expressive imagery.  He’ll also share processing techniques to convey the desired effect.

Mark will lead day and night photography field sessions to some of the Cape’s finest scenery: the ocean, beaches, marshes, woods, lighthouses and fishing villages.  During indoor instructional sessions, he’ll explore the beautiful interaction of light and subject that speaks to somewhere deep within us.  He’ll cover field and digital darkroom methods for:

  Reading weather and shooting the light
  Shooting at sunrise and sunset, twilight and at night
  Photographing the night landscape in relation to the celestial skies
  Previsualizing images for artistic result
  Seeing from different vantage points
  Designing and fine-tuning powerful compositions using the principles of visual flow, dynamic tension, balance, leading lines, shapes and patterns
  Using exposure to control mood and atmosphere
  Determining exposure at night
  Achieving critical focus
day and night
  Using Live View
  Working creatively with your full suite of lenses
  Varying shutter speed for artistic effect
  Targeting color and tonal palettes
  The artistry of long exposures
  Creating expressionistic abstracts
  Planning and shooting multiple exposures: layer masks, panoramas, HDR’s, star trails and time-lapse sequences
  Focus stacking
to maximize depth of field
  Blending multiple exposures with state-of-the-art software

Informative and inspiring, this workshop is geared for both amateur and advanced photographers who want to learn to envision the image-making potential of a variety of landscapes and translate it into compelling imagery.  Join Mark to explore wonders of the Cape — from dawn to deep night.

Cape Cod Dietitian and organic farmer share documentary at Cape Cod Beer for Art Week Boston

Cape Cod Dietitian and organic farmer share documentary at Cape Cod Beer for Art Week Boston

April 28, 2017

Cape Cod Dietitian and organic farmer share documentary at Cape Cod Beer for Art Week Boston April 28, 2017 at 6:30 - 8pm. 24 states. 24 farms. 50 hours of footage & interviews. This is the story of the local food movement from farmers across the country.
In February 2012, Nicole Cormier, Registered Dietitian and Jim Lough, Organic Farmer, both from Massachusetts, embarked on a coast-to-coast road trip, stopping at one organic farm in every state along the route. Each visit was documented with candid interviews of the farmers and vivid photographs of the farms.
This event is featured in this year’s Art Week Boston. This is the third viewing of the documentary that has included a variety of panelists from local farmers, local food advocates like Elspeth Hay from The Local Food Report on NPR and blogger of Diary of a Locavore. Sustainable CAPE and Dr. Sidhartha of Emerald Physicians shared passions of their new program, FlavoRx connecting patients to excess of local fruits and vegetables. We’ve also heard from David Dewitt, helping students at Nauset Middle School run their very own greenhouse. The students bring there famous pea shoots with the Orleans Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9-12pm. There will be more local food enthusiasts on April 28, 2017 on a discussion panel that will leave you feeling inspired.
The documentary is 36 minutes with a local food panel to follow. All proceeds go to a scholarship for Project Woods. This will help an individual attend a wellness retreat in the woods with Nicole Cormier, RD, LDN + Becky Nadeau in Welfleet on May 19-21, 2017
