Fall Stargazing: Halloween Star Tales (rescheduled from Oct 19)
Hickory Nut Gap Farm
Join local astronomer and author Stephan Martin on a tour of the stars and constellations of the fall night sky above the farm. We’ll discuss some of the myths of the constellations along with the seasonal changes in the sky at this time as well as some of the latest discoveries in astronomy and theories of the universe. All ages are welcome and no background in astronomy or science is required.
Oct 23, 6:00 – 8:30 pm Enjoying the Treasures of the Fall Night Sky
Join us for an exploration of the treasures of the fall night sky as we discover the constellations, bright stars, planets, and deep sky objects that fill the evening skies during this time. In this engaging and interactive class, we’ll review the basic use of planispheres and star charts to find our way around the night sky and learn about some of the rich collection of objects that are visible in binoculars and small telescopes. Weather permitting, in the last part of the class we will be stargazing on the Arboretum grounds.

May 22-24, The Way of the Universe: Aligning Our Lives and Our Spirituality with Cosmic Process
Genesis Retreat Center, Westfield, MA
The results from modern science indicate that we live in a universe far richer and more wonderful than anything we could have ever imagined. These insights into the deeper nature of the cosmos have the power to transform our spirituality and our lives and re-envision ourselves as living expressions of a sacred evolving universe.
Far from being either a random accident or a preplanned blueprint, the universe is a creative, generative, and dynamic process expressing itself in lives in every moment. Viewing ourselves and the world around us through the lens of cosmic process helps us to relax more deeply into ourselves and appreciate our participation in—and contribution to—the richness, elegance, and beauty of the universe. Understanding the nature of these cosmic dynamics and how to align with them can also help guide us through the immense transformations and changes currently occurring in our world, allowing us to live lives of inspiration, creativity, and fulfillment for the benefit of others and the whole.
