HopeDance FiLMs presents “CRAZYWISE”
Suggested Donation: $10/ No one will be refused…
A feature documentary challenging the current mental health system in crisis. A 20-year fascination with shamanism leads photographer and filmmaker Phil Borges to question how Western cultures define and treat severe mental disorders.
Crazy…or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.
Conversations have always included mental health practitioners, ex-mental patients, therapists of all kinds

Mirta Guzman will have our BIG altar back
Serving Pozole, Soup and Hot Chocolate
You are invited to the celebration of a traditional Latin American holiday that combines pre-Colombian festivals and indigenous traditions with European rituals for honoring the dead. It is celebrated every year at this same time as Halloween and the Christian holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day.
In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.
Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.
The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) on Wednesday, Nov 1 from Noon-10pm. The BCC will have Pozole and Mexican chocolate available for purchase in the kitchen.
On Thursday Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC will be open from 2pm to 8pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome.
Please join us for any or all of the celebration you can. To volunteer: watch over the altar or bake some sweets for the BCC to sell which will help cover the cost of the altar, please call 868-2128 or email email@example.com.

There will be a panel discussion and a Q&A possibility.
These powerful, often heartbreaking, yet always stirring and inspiring stories offer an intimate look at lives lived at the outer limits of poverty and at the extraordinary courage of ordinary people as they take great risks seeking a better life for their families, especially for their children.
You may leave donations for folks needing help with immigration here in Bolinas.

BETWEEN THE TIDES: LIVING SHORELINES IN THE TIME OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Saturday, October 21 / 2 – 4 PM
$10 suggested donation at the door
Bolinas Community Center / 14 Wharf Road, Bolinas
As we look to the future, how can our past inform the ways in which we adapt to the environmental challenges we face? Throughout the United States and beyond, oyster reefs are being tested as an approach to mitigate the effects of climate change and to restore critical habitat to our waterways. These pilot projects also offer insight into our ecological history. New York harbor was once teaming with oysters and shell mounds were a fixture of San Francisco Bay’s 19th century shoreline. This panel will examine the important role oysters play in the ecology of our bays and the promise they offer for creating resiliency.
Moderated by Alison Sant of the Studio for Urban Projects with panelists Katharyn Boyer, Professor of Biology at the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies, San Francisco State University; Maria Brown, Superintendent of the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary; Robin Grossinger, Senior Scientist and Program Director of the San Francisco Estuary Institute’s Resilient Landscapes Program; and Terry Sawyer from Hog Island Oyster Co.
