New Orleans History Group
Saturday, March 8. 1229 Cadiz Street. 3PM. FREE. Lyceum Project

Drumming, Dancing and Meditation: Moving the Psyche Through Its Stuff
Saturday, March 15. 4511 Chestnut Street. 7PM-9PM. Lyceum Project
I gotta get out of my head. I love the intellectual pursuits here, but I need to bring back other things that are important to me. So, I am going to offer a once a month drumming circle. If you have not experienced the power of long drumming, you will be amazed at how it effects consciousness. Indigenous people all over the world have appreciated the healing and centering qualities of rhythm. It takes no skills or training for this sort of community drumming. Drums are easily created out of pails, or various household objects. We may also have a drum making workshop at some point down the line. We will intersperse the drumming with free movement and meditation. The goal being to loosen up our complexes and where we are stuck and to get back into the flow.
An Ideal Husband
Saturday, March 29. 4511 Chestnut Street. 2PM. FREE. Lyceum Project
Due to the enthusiasm generated with our recent reading of "The Trial of Ann Hutchinson" the management is looking into offering regular play reading groups on Saturday afternoons. Our next play will be a comedy by Oscar Wilde: An Ideal Husband.
Kinetic Sculpture 101
Friday, April 18. Poydras Home (5354 Magazine Street). 7PM. FREE. Lyceum Project
New Orleans is the home of Lin Emery, the world's foremost kinetic
sculptor -- but what is generally known of the discipline, beyond the
fact that it involves motion? This brief presentation will review
the history and challenges of an art form which is one hundred years
old, but only now poised to enter its golden age
What is Libertarianism?
Friday, May 2. Loyola University (114 Miller Hall). 8PM. FREE. Lyceum Project
Libertarianism is the philosophy of liberty. It is based on private property rights and the non-aggression principle. The most popular exponents of this philosophy are Ron Paul, Ayn Rand, Milton Friedman and Friedrich Hayek. However, not all of these people are libertarians!
