This inner macrocosmic force, encoded in our DNA archives, can bring upon regeneration and the natural healing process of the entire biophysical, mental, energetic/etheric body.

October 19   HORMONES, HEALTH AND LOVE: HELPING COUPLES REMAIN INTIMATE IN MID-LIFE AND BEYOND
Berkshire Community College
1350 West Street, K213H
- Pittsfield, MA (413) 236-4500

Speaker: Evelyn Resh, CNM, MPH, CSC, MSN
Location: BCC, 1350 West Street, Pittsfield
Date: Friday, October 19, 2018 / 8:30 – 12:15 p.m.
Fees: $45.00 per person / $45.00 per CEU

Hormonal changes, health issues, and satisfying intimate relationships challenge all long-term couples at some point. However, mid-life is often the starting point, especially, when we consider the sweeping changes brought on by menopause. In addition, “Manopause” can impact individuals and couples as well as is poorly defined, considered, or even mentioned by clients, couples, or other health care providers.

This workshop is designed for mental health practitioners and others who counsel same and/or opposite sex couples who are in mid-life and beyond. The focus will be two-fold; first, to define the most common physiologic changes and challenges faced by men and women in their 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s and second, how these health challenges commonly effect individuals and couples as their contact with the dependence on health care systems and providers increases.

Special attention will be paid to how shifts in health status and treatments for morbid conditions can and do affect self-image and sexual intimacy. Emphasis will be paid on how to help clients adopt health-seeking behaviors that will facilitate a greater sense of empowerment versus infirmity in their intimate relationships as they age, feel more liberated to adopt new and appropriate expectations for sexual satisfaction, and increase their literacy regarding sexuality and aging.

October 27   THE NICE ONES HALLOWEEN PARTY SHOW
The Egremont Barn
17 Main Street
- Egremont, MA 
(413) 528-1570
The Nice Ones formed in 2011 and are based in northwestern Connecticut. Vocalist, guitarist, and fiery preacher Patrick Surdam, virtuosic and amply-haired guitarist Sam McGarrity, too-cool-for-school yet old school bassist Dillon Morrison Halas, and savagely nondescript drummer Tyler Beaujon put on infectious and captivating live performances that demand attention from fans of Motown and prog-rock alike. It’s a challenge to describe the band’s music but what’s clear is its dedication to the craft. The result is confounding but appealing. The listener will enjoy. The audience will dance. Thoughts will most certainly be provoked. Marked by relentless DIY work ethic and unforgettable charm, The Nice Ones are gaining speed and without plans to stop.

also appearing, from NYC, Naught Clouds!

NAUGHTY CLOUDS IS......the meeting of the minds of two songwriters from different sides of the Hudson River.

Ray Kubian and Alexis Moon met doing a David Bowie tribute at Arlene's Grocery in NYC (six months before the untimely death of the Thin White Duke.) They became fast friends on social media, "liking" each other's posts on everything from Bernie to Buzzcocks.

At the time, Ray was playing drums with a few renowned NJ and PA bands (as great drummers who sing are wont to do) such as Dean Ween Group, Chris Forsyth's Solar Motel Band, Chris Harford's Band of Changes, and backing up Pulitzer prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon.

Alexis Moon, a native of NYC, had cut her teeth (a few times over) as a solo singer-songwriter performing at venues such as Wetlands Preserve and Knitting Factory in TriBeca, as well as having sung for Joe Gallant's jazz-rock orchestra Illuminati.

In the month that our lord and savior, David Bowie, passed, Ray and Alexis happened to be rehearsing together again for the first time since the previous summer's Bowie tribute. Commiseration was like a salve for both musicians and, that quartet, which featured guitarist Keith Hartel and bassist Tom Shad, eventually became an early incarnation of Naughty Clouds.
