Virtual Experiences

YAUPON TEA REVIVAL WITH BRYON WHITE | THURSDAY | JUNE 18 | 2-3:00 P.M.
Florida’s agricultural industry is a system under stress. Centuries of intensive food production, dominated by non-native monocultures, have exhausted the land, polluted the water, and created insurmountable economic challenges. But, what if farmers grew native crops instead? What if we developed products from native plants that consumers want to buy? Join Yaupon Brothers American Tea for a discussion on how this is not only possible, but is already happening with a budding Yaupon Tea industry.

EXPLORING THE WONDERS OF THE UNIVERSE FROM YOUR COMPUTER | SATURDAY | JUNE 27 | 2-3:00 P.M.
If you love stargazing and want to learn more about the wonders of the universe, this class is for you. The weather and our schedules don’t always allow for optimal dark sky stargazing; however, you can see the wonders of the universe any time, on your computer. There are a number of “home planetariums” for computers, and this class will explore one of the free favorites among amateur astronomers. See our Solar system’s planets, the Milky Way and nebulae, and those galaxies far, far, away.

GIRAFFE TALK: COMPASSIONATE COMMUNICATION FOR CHILDREN | MONDAY, WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY | JULY 6-31 | 3-3:45 P.M.
Giraffe Talk is a children’s program in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Compassionate Communication Network (rmccn.org). Giraffe Talk is intended to help children integrate the intelligence of the mind with the intelligence of the heart. Why a giraffe? We use a giraffe as our mascot because they have really big hearts, around 25 pounds as compared to a human heart that weighs around 11 ounces. Giraffe Talk is about wanting our thoughts, words, and actions to come from our hearts. We know we are in our hearts when we pay attention to what we’re feeling and what’s important to us, and when we pay attention to what others are feeling and what’s important to them.

It’s easy to share and talk during interactive activities so we use play as a strategy for connecting. In Giraffe Talk, we develop insight around our own experiences, expand our feelings, and learn to understand that those feelings are telling us what’s important to us. This helps us understand why we behave the ways in which we do. We are encouraged to take action and ask for what we want. All of this supports us to develop empathy, kindness, and compassion, find meaningful relationships, feel good about who we are, and become more completely and fully ourselves. Imagine a world where every child learned Giraffe Talk.
