Tomorrow (Friday, March 2), visiting scholar, teacher, and artist Joanna Frueh will conduct a workshop in conjunction with her performance tonight at UNR, The Glamour of Being Real. Spots are currently still available, register at www.sierranevada.edu/glamour
Goals and IntentionsWorkshops facilitate participants being true to themselves through practices of self-transformation and conscious self-creation.I bring to this workshop my 35 years of teaching experience as a university professor, my decades of bodily and scholarly research into soul-and-mind-inseparable-from-body, and my desire to help women in particular transform the negative habits of mind and body that pervade our culture in regard to women. I received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Women's Caucus for Art in 2008 for satisfying that desire; as that organization wrote, “for helping forge a positive image of women as they experience life passionately.”What We Do in the WorkshopThe book The Glamour of Being Real is composed of 5 chapters, Glamour Defined, Change, Body, Relationships, and Everyday Life. The basis of each workshop is the first chapter, which gives participants new ways to think about and activate trust in themselves. Then we focus on one of the chapter topics. Conversation and effectively simple body and mind practices are the methods for exploring self-creation and self-transformation—and for having fun.
