Instructor: Right Brain Curriculum

Famously, Americans’ number one fear is public speaking while death only ranks number two. If that’s so, this profound fear probably starts at an early age. In our Public Speaking class, we take the fear out of speaking before an audience by getting kids talking in front of a supportive group about things in which they are interested. They write speeches on subjects of their choice and practice delivering them to the assembled students. As the kids practice in this low-pressure environment, they learn skills like standing up tall, using a loud voice and making eye contact. We also watch speeches of public figures and critique what is successful and unsuccessful in their speeches and hold fun and engaging debates in which students are asked to take a position on given issues such as “Should school have homework?” and “What time should kids go to bed?” If the class is successful, our students won’t list public speaking as their #1 fear when they grow up.

Instructor: Jenny Lynn Metevia, M.Ed.

 “Dreams, I’m convinced, are just one more dimension of our minds, a dimension that, when put into perspective, gives access to a whole new wealth of knowledge.”  -Sylvia Browne

Have you ever dreamt about something, then found out it has come to fruition?  Have you woken up in the night discovering you are unable to move?  Perhaps you have recurring dreams in places you’ve never been to; or you’ve been visited by a loved one in a dream?  Symbolism, the language of our dreams, has been relied upon for centuries for guidance, clarity and decision-making.  Some indigenous societies believe the dream world is more important than the concrete.  Spiritual Teacher & Clairvoyant Medium, Jenny Lynn Metevia, M.Ed. will lecture on the subject of dreams, taking questions from the audience.   Jenny will discuss the five types of dreams, how you can begin to learn the language that is being created just for you, and how to better ‘remember’ your dreams.  Jenny has trained with Dr. Brian Weiss (as seen on Oprah) in Past Life Regression, as well as Sylvia Browne in Healing and Psychic Development; her psychic abilities have been validated by Sylvia Browne (as see on Larry King Live) and James Van Praagh (creator of Ghost Whisperer).  As heard on WBZ News Radio’s Jordan Rich Show, Jenny’s guided meditation CD, “State of Grace,” is available now at www.jennymetevia.com.
