As you all know, the Independent Scholars' Evenings  are dedicated to promote and support the work of area Independent Scholars. Held each Thursday at 7.00 pm during a shortened academic school year, this year we are opening the spring session earlier than usual. There is no snow and the temperatures are warm enough for our regular evening sessions.

Should the weather change, of course we may resume the winter break.

Special documentary:

Jan 12 th 2012
7.00 pm

THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream -- uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future. After the presentation there will be critical analysis of the movie within the group, facilitated by Independent Scholar Michael Grady.

Please attend.  Please feel free to forward this email to your network.
These Inidependent Scholars' Evenings we sponsored by The Institute for Cultural and Healing Traditions, Ltd. a 501(c) 3 at State and Federal levels since 1996.

Looking forward to meeting you at the ISE
