Event: 
Sat, 10/28/2017 - 2:00pm - 3:30pm

In 1917, the US entered the Great War to fight alongside our European allies. However, Washington's homefront experience began long before the country entered the war, and continued afterward. Join historian Lorraine McConaghy to learn about and discuss this dramatic period in our state's history.

TAPPAS: Thurston Alternatives to Psychiatry Products and Services

At the recent Alternatives to Psychiatry panel, there was strong interest in networking for people offering alternatives to psychiatry in Thurston County (and surrounding areas). This group is to connect those seeking alternatives to psychiatry with those offering solutions and support. It is a place to network with other practitioners and those interested in alternatives.

You are welcome to post your website, events, blogs or products in this group on occasion.

Future visions for this group include practitioner expos, peer support gatherings, alternative medicine fairs, listings on a website for local practitioners and additional panel discussions and in person networking gatherings.

This group does not provide or substitute for medical advice or medical care. Nothing posted in this group is ever intended as medical advice, though doctors of all kinds who offer alternatives to psychiatry are welcome. Non medical practitioners are also welcome and we are all treated with equal respect in this group. Anyone who is disrespectful of the group's intentions or members will be deleted and blocked.

People are welcome whether they take psychiatric drugs or not. This is a place to learn about alternatives and respect diversity.

Three important pillars of this group:

In late stage capitalism and amidst neo-liberalism, it is impossible and oppressive to single out individuals and call their "mental health" their own. Or imply it is possible to be "mentally healthy" or that is even an ideal to strive for, whatever it may be. Mental health would then be a commodity like everything else that can be bought with enough money.

Musician Anjali Silva

Event: 
Sat, 10/07/2017 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

Accompanied by guitarist Steve Luceno, vocalist Anjali Silva creates a narrative of songs that will provide listeners with a deeper understanding of Mexican culture and the immigrant experience. This is part of Timberland Reads Together, an annual Timberland Regional Library program.

We’re located at 7023 New Market St SW, accessible via Intercity Transit route 12/13. Call 360-943-7790 for more information.

Harlequin Productions Presents Cymbeline

A Romantic Comedy by William Shakespeare

 

Starting October 5, Harlequin Productions presents Shakespeare’s romantic adventure Cymbeline at the State Theater in downtown Olympia. This production runs October 5 – 28, and tickets are available at www.harlequinproductions.org or 360-786-0151.

 

An action packed romance, Cymbeline is the story of a wager over a woman’s virtue. When King Cymbeline’s adopted son Posthumus marries princess Imogen without the king’s permission, he is banished. On his travels Posthumus meets Iachimo and a group of foreigners who are boasting of the beauty of their countries’ women. When Iachimo hears of Imogen’s graces and her constancy, he wagers gold against the ring that Imogen had given Posthumus that he can seduce her. So begins a journey through jealousy, betrayal, courage, repentance, and redemption.

 

"This is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. I think of it as Shakespeare's Greatest Hits Meets Snow White and the Rustic Mountaineers. No kidding! Action, lovers, romance, villains, betrayal, murder, heroic deeds, happy ending... and this production even has a robot! What's not to love?"

– Director Scot Whitney
