Gilded Prostitution: Edith Whartons The Buccaneers and the American Siege of London

Whartons posthumously published novel,The Buccaneers, captures the early years of the transatlantic marriage phenomenon when Americanwomen took London society by storm. They dazzled British aristocrats with their wit, charm, and irreverence for formality, and constituted a beachhead for greater numbers of marital liaisons between American women and British peers and their younger sons. Set in the same era asThe Age of Innocence,The Buccaneersdeals with two metropolises on either side of the Atlantic experiencing volatile social change and uses marriage as a lens through which to explore points of friction in gender and class relationships as well as in social and political values. Its comedic moments scarcely hide Whartons sharp criticism of elite marriages as gilded prostitution.

Maureen Montgomery will examine Wharton's final novel in light of her own socio-hisorical analysis of titled marriages in the period 1870-1914 and the controversies they stirred.

Maureen Montgomeryis the inaugural holder of the McGinty Distinguished Chair in History at Salve Regina University, Newport, Rhode Island. She has taught History and American Studies at universities in England, New Zealand, and the United States and is a member of the Edith Wharton Society. She has published several essays on Edith Wharton and is the author ofDisplaying Women: Spectacles of Leisure in Edith Whartons New York(Routledge, 1998) andGilded Prostitution: Status, Money, and Transatlantic Marriages, 1870-1914(Routledge, 1989), reissued in paperback in April 2014.

Advanced Storytelling Workshop

Matthew Dicks, 16-time Moth StorySLAM champion and producer of Speak Up, will lead a day-long workshop for storytellers who are ready to up their game. The interactive workshop will focus on performance skills, and participants will receive individual critique.

Stories will be broken down to find where they are working and where they are not. It's a supportive environment designed to help the storyteller revise their story while simultaneously teaching techniques and strategies to the rest of the class.

Matthew will also model the planning of a story for the first time, completely unprepared, from a randomly chosen topic on his story-potential list. It's a process that past classes have found to be one of the most beneficial parts of theworkshop a peek into the mind of a storyteller at work, a look at the work professional storytellers normally do while in the shower or walking the dog.

There are also exercises that promote extemporaneous speaking, story generation, emotion through intonation, and more.

Participants can expect an hour-long break for lunch; meals will not be provided. Participation in an introductory workshop is not necessary. Space is limited.

Literary Death Match

Literary Death March returns to The Mount for The Berkshires, Ep. 3! Rural Intelligence named LDMs first appearance at The Mount one of the mostmemorable parties of 2013 dont miss the literary fun this time around!

Participants will include Jedediah Berry,Ron Currie Jr., Courtney Maum, and Jenny Zigrino.

About Literary Death March Each episode of this competitive, humor-centric reading series features a thrilling mix of four famous and emerging authors who perform their most electric writing in seven minutes or less before an audience and a panel of three all-star judges. After each pair of readings, the judges focused on literary merit, performance and intangibles take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary about each story, then select their favorite to advance to the finals.

The two finalists then compete in the Literary Death Match finale, which trades in the shows literary sensibility for a comical climax to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown.

It may sound like a circus and that's half the point. Literary Death Match is passionate about inspecting new and innovative ways to present text off the page, and the most fascinating part about the LDM is how seriously attentive the audience is during each reading. We've called this the great literary ruse: an audacious and inviting title, a harebrained finale, but in-between the judging creates a relationship with the viewer as a judge themselves.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - A Practical Introduction in Clinical Practice: A Weekend Professional Workshop
Acceptance and mindfulness-based practices are rapidly making their way into mental health care, medicine, and society both to alleviate human suffering and nurture psychological health and wellness. This body of work also offers a fresh perceptive on psychological suffering and a set of powerful clinical strategies that support meaningful life changes. In this workshop, we will learn about one particular approach and set of practices based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT is a newer third-generation evidence-based behavior therapy that balances mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change processes to (a) weaken the unhelpful influence of thoughts and emotional avoidance in guiding actions, while (b) promoting greater experiential and psychological flexibility in the service of (c) valued ends. It is both a form of therapy and an approach to living well, with evidence showing that it is useful for many forms of psychological and emotional suffering. In short, ACT teaches clients how to be with their hurts and do what works to live well, richly, and meaningfully, without first having to defeat sources of emotional and psychological pain. This 2-day workshop will introduce ACT, both as a model and intervention technology, and illustrate its use across a broad set of problem areas that are commonly seen in mental health settings (e.g., anxiety, depression, anger). This work can be challenging for both therapists and clients alike, for much of ACT work involves contacting difficult and painful psychological content without defense and for a purpose other than psychological relief. Thus, understanding the application and integration of the ACT model of psychological health and suffering is essential for effective ACT work. Our time together will be filled with didactic teachings, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises that will be done individually, in dyads, and small groups. The exercises will highlight the integration of mindfulness and acceptance strategies (along with kindness and compassion exercises) to disarm forms of human suffering and also to promote greater clarity of values and action in the service of living well. Participants will be encouraged (but never forced or coerced) to engage the material at a personal level, as it applies to their own lives, and then also in the context of their clinical work. All we ask is that participants are willing to get inside the ACT model and approach, if only for a weekend. Clinical worksheets and other practical tools will be provided.

There are hiking trails, waterfront access for kayaking and gardens to stroll through. Youll renew your passion for the outdoors, connect with Greg and Johnny and connect with your own spirit, coming away feeling fully alive again. Explore the abundance of flora and fauna living in and along the river flowing between October Mountain State Park and the Eastover property. Expect to see lush plant life along the water's edge, from wild morning glories to varieties of daisies. The western slope of October Mountain is ablaze in color and reaches down to the waters edge along the entire length of the trip. You'll see an abundance of animal life: birds, waterfowl, tree trunks hosting turtles and frogs, beavers and muskrats, geese, ducks are plentiful. Other birds commonly seen include swamp sparrows, red-wing black birds, red-headed woodpeckers, cardinals, herons, kingfishers, hawks and, on occasion, bald eagles.

Therapeutic Guided Imagery with Jeanne Zuzel
June 7 - 12, 2015 *CE credit available $25 Great men are those who see that sprituality is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world. Whatever we give our attention to, we attract. "Where thoughts go, energy flows." Therefore, the more deliberate we are in choosing our thoughts, the more we are able to focus our experiences in desired directions. Like attracts like. What preoccupies our thoughts tends to become our reality. Goal oriented creative imagery is a way of focusing one's mind to get what one wants out of life, be it health, happiness or prosprity. Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very small protion of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed. *Healing touch is an interationally accredited program endorsed by the Holistic Nures's Association, offering continuing education contact hours for each workshop. Program Overview This course is an Introduction to Therapeutic Guided Imagery for use in the clinical setting. It offers the participant the opportunity to become familiar with and practice Imagery for: Client Relaxation Restoration Overall Well being Self care Through hands on, interactive learning, participants will be able to assist clients to gain insight, direction, and empowerment, and to take an active role in their healing and growth process.
