Once and Future Plague: The Last 100 Years of Flu…and the Next 100 Years

In 1918, the Spanish flu infected one-third of the planet (500 million people). Of these, as many as 50 million died. For all of science’s advances in combatting infectious disease, we still have trouble protecting people against flu. Are we ready for the next pandemic?

Sherryl Broverman is Associate Professor of the Practice in Biology and Global Health at Duke.

Beginning Zen Practice, A Class with David Guy @ The Chapel Hill Zen Center
Jan 14 @ 7:30 pm – Feb 18 @ 9:00 pm

Monday nights, 7:30-9:00
January 14 to February 18

Stop searching for phrases and chasing after words. Take the backward step and turn the light inward. Your body-mind of itself will drop off and your original face will appear.
— Master Dogen

Zen Meditation, or zazen, is the simple practice of being present with our experience. We hear the instructions in a matter of minutes, but spend a lifetime learning the practice. This class will introduce participants to meditation and give them support as they develop a daily sitting practice. It will also introduce them to other aspects of practice at the Chapel Hill Zen Center.

The first night will begin with meditation instructions and a short period of sitting. Each week we will continue to sit for a period at the beginning of class, gradually increasing the time. Participants will have a chance to ask questions and raise concerns about their practice. As the weeks proceed we will study other aspects of Zen practice, including walking meditation, protocol around the zendo, and the service of bowing and chanting. But the focus will be on zazen, and participants’ actual practice as it unfolds. The content of the class will emerge from participants’ questions and concerns.

Cost is $60, payable the first night, and will be contributed to the Zen Center. Partial scholarships are available. For more information, or to sign up, please contact David Guy at (919) 641-9277 or davidguy@mindspring.com.

David Guy has been practicing meditation since 1991, and regularly gives sitting instruction. He has co-authored two books with Larry Rosenberg of the Cambridge Insight Meditation Center — Breath by Breath: The Liberating Practice of Insight Meditation and Living in the Light of Death: On the Art of Being Truly Alive. In 2008 he published Jake Fades: A Novel of Impermanence. David’s Blog can be found at www.davidguy.org

About Stephanie
I have been making soap for a decade now for myself and my family. I started making my own soap while I was a oncology researcher. I came across an article “Seven Carcinogens Commonly Found in Beauty Care Products” in an oncology journal. I was dismayed to find out that the all natural and organic products I was using were full of carcinogens! I decided to start making my own soap that I knew would be all natural and healthy for my skin.

A month after I started using my own soap, my eczema that I had since I was a child went away. I was amazed and hooked! I would love to teach you how to make your own soaps at home. You can make a healthy and affordable product for yourself and your loved ones.

I am a practicing Duke Endocrinologist passionate about making healthy living a part of ones life style. I want to share my passion for healthy eating with others and I strongly believe healthy eating starts with healthy cooking.
