The comic minds behind The SuperHappy Triva Challenge and The SuperHappy Radio Hour, have partnered with The Magnetic Theatre for an ambitious, 2-day fundraising event. And it WILL be fun! For almost three years, The SuperHappy Trivia Challenge has been keeping audiences in stitches with their monthly, live comedy game show. Its combination of irreverent humor and improvisational leeway, makes it as unpredictable as it is hysterical. In the spring of 2017, they launched their second stage project: The SuperHapy Radio Hour. Also, a monthly offering, this scripted radio-style sketch comedy show is recorded for podcast before a live studio audience, and has brought the best of the best in Asheville stage talent behind their mics. The SuperHappy Telethon will span 8 hours over two nights at Magnetic 375, in the River Arts District, featuring best of and new material from The Radio Hour, segments of The Trivia Challenge, and sketch comedy from the SH team, as well as stand-up comedians, musical acts, and specialty performers. Each night will be broken into two, 2 -hour segments, with ticket price points for a single segment, evening or full weekend pass. No two segments will be the same material/acts. While this show promises to be a comedically skewed send up of famous telethons gone by, they take their fundraising and beneficiary very seriously. Proceeds from the event will go to the not for profit organization, Arms Around ASD (http://armsaroundasd.org), an Asheville based resource center, providing services for people on the Autism spectrum and their families, regardless of age, ability or income. The telethon will not only donate a sizable portion of ticket sales, but will also be donating all proceeds from on-site donations, as well as an online donation portal.

Do you feel like you know Middle-earth, Hogwarts, or District 12 as well as your own hometown? Do you wonder how authors create worlds so rich and complex they seem like they must really exist? Have you ever wanted to do the same thing—create a nation or a dimension or a planet? This six-week class is for you. Class meets Mondays 6pm to 8 pm, January 22-February 26, 2018.  Worldbuilding 101 looks at the mechanics and craft of setting. Whether you are writing a secondary world fantasy, a science fiction epic, or a novel set in a contemporary high school, it’s your job to make the world as real as possible. Using some representative examples and workshoppers’ own work, we’ll look at the pros and cons of description, how to use dialogue and sketching to avoid the setting infodump, and when and how to give backstory or history, and more. To register by check instead of via Eventbrite, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting.  Jamieson Ridenhour is a novelist and playwright.

The world desperately needs to encounter genuine followers of Jesus Christ whose lives are authentic and express our Savior’s heart. Jesus describes these Christians in the Beatitudes—believers who are poor in spirit, who mourn over their own sin and the brokenness of mankind, who bestow mercy on other sinners, and who are ever hungry for more of Him. As we seek His grace, Jesus promises that our lives will be blessed and the world will be impacted for His glory. Come dig into His Word, pursue His purpose for you, and take the heart of Christ to lost and desperate people.

Trouble with the Twos: Classroom Management Strategies from Toddler to Three Often classroom management responsibilities and developmentally appropriate practices compete for time in our busy classrooms. When this battle takes place children and families lose. In this session we will explore what we can do in our toddler to three classrooms to move beyond day-to-day survival and toward classroom systems that allow teachers to focus on intentional practices that embrace the whole child.

In this age of Instagram and Facebook, we as a culture have become adept at putting filters on our lives and pretending to be who others think we are. But followers of Jesus have been delivered for a far higher purpose and impact. We’ve been freed to be restored, obedient, focused, and courageous. Come immerse yourself in God’s Word and step out—and stay out—of your comfort zone. Consider the ways God has gone to all extremes to relentlessly deliver you so that you can live boldly. He’s given you a unique fingerprint so that He can leave the imprint of His grace in your life on the world around you. Invite the Holy Spirit to give you the strength to lay everything on the line for Jesus Christ—your reputation, your success, and your comfort. As you do, fear will be overcome by faith, and you will discover the truest version of yourself.

* Do you want more comfort and confidence in communicating your consent and boundaries? * Is it hard to find safe, non-sexual, nurturing touch in your life? * Are you ready to explore conscious connection, authentic consent, and empowered boundaries, and nurturing platonic touch? Then Snuggle Sanctuary is the place for you!  Nurturing, welcome, consensual touch is esssential for the wellbeing of your body, your heart, and your spirit. Your nervous system, blood pressure, and emotional health all benefit from healthy, heart-full touch. The body's bliss hormone, Ocytocin, is realeased by nurturing, welcome, consensual touch and is essential for the wellbeing of your body, your heart, and your spirit. Your nervous system, blood pressure, and emotional health all benefit from healthy, heart-full touch!  Safe touch also enhances your ability to connect with and trust people, your capacity to respect and care for yourself, your creativity, and your sense of safety, comfort, and belonging. Infants who are deprived of touch fail to thrive, and we never outgrow that need. In today’s high-tech low-touch society, we especially crave the authentic connection, deep listening, and nurturing touch that we were born to receive.  Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable sometimes need to be learned and practiced. Skills of communication, expressing boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and kindness. For many of us, this can be an uncomfortable edge to explore. That's why we have Snuggle Sanctuary! My job as a trained facilitator is to guide you into these skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. I am here to welcome you, create an atmosphere of respect, and remain available for questions and support. At Snuggle Sanctuary you gain:  * Clarity and confidence about your wants and needs  * Boundary and communication skills  * Comfort, support and encouragement  * The secrets to welcome, relaxed, platonic touch  The skills you learn at Snuggle Sanctuary translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier. And… Where else can you attend a workshop in your pajamas?! WHAT TO EXPECTThe Orientation Circle is required for anyone who has a desire to learn this practice and would like to attend our monthly Snuggle Sanctuary evenings. It is also appropriate for those who've had some experience but would like an opportunity to refresh thier understanding and reinforce their skills for communicating consent and boundaries.   During the first hour we create the structure and establish safe space with the Orientation Circle. We will introduce ourselves, learn about Snuggle Sanctuary philosophy, go over the Agreements (like "Ask permission and get a verbal Yes before touching anyone", and "It's okay to change your mind at any time, for any reason"), and go through several communication and ice-breaker exercises.  After the Orientation Circle hour with the new-comers, we will have a break with snacks and mingling while our experienced participants arrive between 7:15 - 7:30. Then we will all come together for a Welcome Circle and Introductions, review the Agreements, share a few group exercises, and the space will be opened up for social snuggling time for the rest of the evening. You will have the option to join in a group snuggle, connect one-on-one for individual snuggles, or just sit back and watch, journal, and have a conversation. You can leave at anytime, or stay until we end with a Closing Circle.  You may want to attend Snuggle Sanctuary for a variety of reasons. Some come just to have fun and enjoy a wonderful evening of connecting with like-minded people and making new friends. Some come to safely fulfill their need for affection and nurturing touch that may be missing in their everyday life. Some appreciate the learning and personal growth aspect, having the opportunity to improve their social and communication skills, and explore ways of creating connection and closeness. Some may appreciate risking connecting with someone of the same sex (or the opposite sex, if that's your edge). Some find a beautiful element of spirituality here, and play with touch meditation, breath Tantra, eye gazing, and exploring the naturally altered state of consciousness that the "cuddling hormone" oxytocin can produce.  Snuggling can mean feet against feet, head or shoulder rubs, full-body hugs, spooning - it is entirely up to you. You can participate according to your desires and comfort level. It is perfectly ok if you just want to talk and not touch anyone for a while or not at all - YOU ARE ALWAYS AT CHOICE!!!. Regardless of your level of physical engagement, you will have a great opportunity to meet and connect with other people in a safe and relaxing environment. LOGISTICAL DETAILS  Be sure to REGISTER in advance through EventBrite. There are a limited number of spaces available. Confirmations with complete details, location, and directions will be e-mailed out to those who register. Registration for first-timers (includes Orientation Circle): $30  Registration for experienced participants: $20 PLEASE BE ON TIME. You are welcome to arrive at 5:45 to get settled in before the Orientation Circle begins at 6pm.  The Orientation Circle is for first-timers to go over the Agreements of Snuggle Sanctuary. This is an important aspect of the Snuggle Sanctuary experience and creates a safe container for all participants. It is essential that everyone be on time. Once the Orientation Circle begins, no late arrivals can join us.  After the Orientation Circle hour with the new-comers, we will have a break with snacks and mingling while our experienced participants arrive between 7:15 - 7:30 and settle in for the full-group Welcome Circle and introductions, review, and exercises before the space is opened up for social snuggling time for the rest of the evening. Once the Welcome Circle begins, no late arrivals can join us.  WEAR comfortable, non-binding, clothing (sweat pants, loose cotton, pajamas, onesies, etc. - have fun!).
