JESSE'S DREAM GROUP ANALYSIS w/ JESSE MILNE
   How does it work?
1. Someone shares their dream (you can bring printed copies of your dream but this is not required) while everyone else listens and takes notes if needed.
2. Next, everyone else can ask questions to clarify or further explore the details of the dream (e.g., How did you feel in the dream when __ happened?)
3. One at a time, each person (besides the dream sharer) offers their interpretation on the dream. For the interpretation, we use a first person perspective as if someone else's dream was yours. Example: "If this were my dream, it would mean..." Interpretations can point out overarching themes, potential meaning of small details, takeaways, etc. 
4. After everyone (besides dream sharer) has shared their interpretations, one more round of additional comments from the dream interpreters may occur if any additional thoughts have come up. 
5. Finally, the dream sharer can voice their final takeaways from the dream. What did people say that resonated with them? What didn't? Any revelations? After hearing everyone else's interpretation, what does that dream now mean to them? 
Then, the cycle starts over so that someone else can share a new dream with the group.

***Community Guidelines***
- Sharing dreams can be very personal, and we therefore ask that what happens in the dream group stays in the dream group.
- We resolve to create a safer space for all attendees to feel respected and safe in sharing their own and interpreting others' dreams.  "

8pm YANKEE REBELS Bluegrass Band
   The Yankee Rebels began in the 1960's when 3 high school buddies realized that all three loved Bluegrass music and decided to form a band.  Over the years the band has won eight first prizes at Bluegrass contests and performed at Bluegrass festivals all over the eastern United States. Two of the three founding members, ART DEKHAYSER on guitar and LES BAYER on 5-string banjo are joined by MARK FARRELL on mandolin, BILL CHRISTOPHERSEN on fiddle and ALLEN COHEN on upright bass, to recreate past triumphs and forge ahead with traditional style Bluegrass that sounds at home in the 21st century.

JULIE BENTSEN'S BOOK RELEASE
   
I'm excited to release my first solo book, "Post-its Saved My Soul", which is composed of visual art and poetry made over the course of 10 years using only office supplies.
    Why office supplies? Because of my 10 year-long journey skulking through horrifying corporate office jobs, while using their post-its, pens, and software to create art on company time ;)
    Doodling and scribbling poetry kept my heart and mind intact during the long hours spent inside a cubicle cage. Now that I've left that world behind, come out and celebrate with me! Celebrate that even in the most dehumanizing of times or places, we can still make art
    The marvelous Justin Dubitibly shall be hosting!
    Glorious poets will be poeting! (such as Thomas Fucaloro, John Snyder, and others)
    Books shall be available for a suggested price of $10/book, and will be distributed by a host of angels descended from Heaven's middle-management team!

Hope to see you there :D

MUSIC: THE RESISTANCE COMPANY
The Resistance Company is a NY based band of activists, educators, & musicians that stand vigilantly for a better world. The system that we were born into is our greatest deterrent in terms of realizing our power as human beings. We confront those that oppose social justice, the environment, and the future of life itself. While we vote we also consider it the very least we can do to defend our future because our future is in our hands, not the hands of the politicians, corporations, or media that try to control us.

2pm AUTHOR: Marleen "Molly" Levi reads from her new children's book
"January and Friends"
  "January called the Meeting of the Months to order. February was so excited that this was a leap year (only happens every 4 years) and she'd have 1 extra day bringing her to 29 vs. 28; closer to the 30 or 31 days like her sister months. But December was sad. "What's wrong?," asked January, the leader of the months. December told January she was tired of always being last and asked if she could change places. January had an idea and first changed places with December, but then excused herself to February, March, and April and changed places with June! Soon, the other months were all changing places. The cal-endars were all wrong and no one knew where the holidays were anymore. Where's the Easter Bunny? and Christmas? So much confusion! How will this be resolved?"

8pm JAZZ: 3 KORN BROT
  Originating from Germany, ROSI HERTLEIN, violin, voice; PETER KNOLL, guitar; and CHRISTIAN FINGER, drums; all moved to New York to further their musical careers, where fate brought them together to form “3 Korn Brot”. Their musical backgrounds are equally based in classical music, free improvisation and jazz, however their musical vocabulary extends beyond genres. Their free improvisations - or spontaneous compositions are an exciting melange of sonic experience and rhythmic power. “3 Korn Brot” are thrilled to fill ETG with their blend of energetic music.

3pm AUTHOR: DECLAN BOYER: "My Vacation to Chincoteague – A Novella"
    Author Declan Boyer narrates the fictional story of his vacation to Gettysburg, Chincoteague Island (on the Eastern Shore of Virginia) and Ocean City, Maryland, with his friends and their families. In Gettysburg, they explore the battlefields, where Honest Abe Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address, walk on the battlefields, and enjoy meals at General Pickett's Buffet.  In Chincoteague, they explore the Assateague Wildlife Refuge, where they ride bicycles, see the ponies, go to the beach, climb to the top of the Assateague Lighthouse, and finish the day with ice cream.  And in Ocean City, mostly everybody goes to the beach and walks on the boardwalk.

About the Author:   Declan Boyer lives in Staten Island. He is a train enthusiast, particularly of the New York City Subway system, and a photographer. He is the author of a previous novel, "A Modern Family Vacation to the United Kingdom." He has spent many summers in Chincoteague and knows the island from its beaches to its bookstores, along with the ponies, and occasionally, movies at the Island Roxy.
