Tickets:  $25.00   Student: $10:00
Description:  Join classical guitarist, Colin McAllister, for solo program of contemplation and reflection…statio hiberna celebrates the stages of the winter season…its approach through the darkening of autumn, its long stasis of contemplative quiet, and its departure via the emergence of life in spring. At the heart of this program is composer Derek Keller’s The End Times are a ‘Changin’, a multimedia experience for guitar, electronics and video that asks us to reflect upon the images and writings of the twelfth century theologian Joachim of Fiore, as well as the end of time and our own relationship to it.

The Enneagram is an uncommonly accurate, useful, and insightful personality system. It provides a deep understanding of ourselves and those with whom we live and work. This class is for anyone new to the Enneagram and has had their interest piqued. Unlike the more complicated Meyers-Briggs personality system (18 possible choices), the Enneagram has nine personality types that characterize the fundamental world views that shape the ways people typically think, feel, and act. The Enneagram is a helpful tool for professional development and an engaging and useful tool for discovering our spiritual nature, the truth of who we are, and our connection to others. Chris Krueger, a student of the Enneagram for over 30 years, is a certified Enneagram teacher. He has an intense interest in the discovery of the most authentic self.
