“Brain Mapping and Drug Free Approaches to ADD/ADHD, Autism and other Special Needs,”

Free Educational Workshop for Parents and Teachers of Children with Special Needs in Waltham

Attention! Parents of children who struggle with ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiance, OCD, Anxiety, are on the Autistic Spectrum or have other special needs.

Attend a free community workshop at the Waltham Public Library on Thursday, November 17th from 7:00-8:30pm, at 735 Main Street, Waltham.

After standing room only at Dedham, The Foundation for Wellness Professionals, a 17 year-old, worldwide non-profit organization that promotes wellness and disease prevention programs, presents a free community workshop on Brain Mapping and Drug Free Approaches to ADD and Autism.

Dr. Ross is a Licensed Psychologist with extensive experience in biofeedback treatment, cognitive and behavioral therapy, and behavioral medicine. She received training in EEG assessment from Dr. K.H. Wong, of Children's Hospital Medical Center Boston and has an extensive background in the treatment of individuals with neuropsychiatric and neurobehavioral challenges.

Research has uncovered a brain mapping technique that allows the identification and treatment of educational and behavioral difficulties when nearly every other technique has failed. This is a research based, pain and drug free procedure that pinpoints discordant rhythms in the brain. Once identified, these discordant rhythms can be improved with biofeedback applications. Biofeedback improves the imbalance and promotes healthy brain function. The result is a reduction or even elimination of symptoms.

Come for this free educational session and see before and after brain images of children with remarkable results and hear about the dramatic improvements these children have experienced.

FALL 2014: TUESDAYS 3:45 - 5: 30 p.m. After-school circus arts session for kids aged 7 - teen. Session begins 9/9 - 12/16, no class November 25th (Thanksgiving week).

~ Prior to registration, please call or email Melinda Pavlata (melinda@cirquepassion.com) at Moody Street Circus at 781 893 2491 to make sure this program is a good fit for your child, to check if there is room in the session of your chioce and to reserve a spot for your child. 

Calling all kids aged 7 - teen! Run away with the circus afterschool without actually having to leave home.  Circus stars and Moody Street Circus Directors Sacha and Melinda Pavlata host this challenging and affirming after-school program in their beautiful circus studio.  Students must be dressed in appropriate workout attire (see below ) -- no jewelry, jeans, zippers or gum -- and be able to listen and follow directions for maximum safety of all participants.  Tuesday session meets from 3:45 - 5:30 p.m.

***We cap attendance at 10 kids to ensure maximum time on all equipment and to encourage the highest quality experience for all students.

Kids in our Moody Street Circus Afterschool Program will practice juggling, plate spinning, assisted tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola, rolling globe, tightrope walking, trampoline, and mini trampoline.  They will learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, rings, web, lyra and silks.

Attire:  Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone, even for parents who are dropping off and picking up. Parents and caregivers are always welcome to stay and watch the action on our comfy studio futons.  Camp is conducted barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire.  Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids.  We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys.  Kids should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks.

*Waiver forms must be completed for each camper or participation in camp will not be allowed.  We will send you a waiver form after you have registered, or you can request one prior by emailing meinda@cirquepassion.com.

Reviews of Moody Street Circus:

Philippe Petit, renowned funambulist most recently featured in Man on Wire, writes of Sacha Pavlata, Moody Street Circus Founder:

“I met Alexandre Pavlata in 1972 at the Cirque d’Hiver of Paris.  He was helping some kids, backstage, to perfect their somersaults.  I remember the gentle yet strong way he was directing their progresses, there was a lot of joy, but the results were prompt.

 

As I watch Sacha over the years, becoming slowly the “best circus teacher” (his well-earned reputation today), I realized that a very special chemistry was the secret of his so unique ability:  Sacha could offer in the classes he gave, the flavor of European Circus Tradition.  He was born and raised in a traveling circus family, therefore was quickly acquainted with the constant training, the tough discipline, the respect for other artists, and the ability to understand rigging and to perform all aspects of circus profession.

 

But Sacha had to offer, blended to this heritage, the benefits of his own life and personality:  he has traveled all over the world, therefore mastering several languages, he had coached numerous pupils of diverse ways of life, nationalities, age, goals and talents, had become a father, and had developed a sparkling intelligence at introducing the unfamiliar to a demanding craft, with surprising results.

 

It is the blending of the deeply traditional world of European circuses, with a modern international expertise that made the instruction of Master Teacher Pavlata so effective, and so rich, so outstanding."

 

"I love this place; I want to live here! I could sleep on the trapeze!!!"  (Birthday girl Stella Hu)

"This was the most exciting party my daughter has ever attended!" (Wellesley Mom)

“My 5th grade daughter has been taking a circus class at Moody Street Circus and she loves it! Her favorite activities are the silks and the lyra. It gives her such a sense of freedom and accomplishment! I see it every time she comes back from class. Thank you Melinda and Sacha for encouraging the students to push their limits in a safe, fun environment!” --

Seeking the Hope of Trust

“How do we trust someone we can't see? Most of us struggle to do that with those we CAN see! The good news, God never asks the impossible. There is a way to shake all the doubts and fear.”

This day retreat begins by looking at the examples of Our Blessed Mother, St. Therese of Lisieux, and St. Faustina - as well as modern day "saints in the making", on how to even begin to approach the idea of trusting God. Then how the Sacraments become our tools in growing in faith and trust are discussed, followed by an opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. (Reconciliation will be offered during the lunch break.) Lastly, we will examine what Scripture reveals about the mystery of trusting - the beauty of how our trust in God also relates to our ability (or inability) to trust others, and how through God's word - we can be encouraged in this growing in this virtue.


The day often includes these elements:
*Inspiring Talks by Catholic, Radio Host, Writer and Speaker Allison Gingras
*Small group discussions
*An opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation
*A catered boxed lunch
*Shopping with various local vendors - including the Daughters of St. Paul

Also available - You can register by mail by sending $25 with your lunch choice to Reconciled to You, PO Box 784, Raynham Center, MA 02768.  Thank you in advance for joining us!

Kanban / Scrumban Kickstart for Software Development & IT Ops Teams

Why
Kanban / Scrumban?

  • Simple & Easy - Starts with What You're Already Doing and Makes Your Practices More Effective
  • Improved Focus & Flexibility
  • Techniques for Reducing Wasted Time & Work
  • More Reliable Forecasting & Planning Capabilities
  • Increased Efficiency
  • More Sustainable Over Time
Kanban for Software Development & IT Operations

Kanban is a powerful framework that enables you to take control of your existing way of working and begin eliminating your biggest headaches.  It does this by adding enhanced visualization techniques and other tools to our existing management process that improve shared understandings and expose the systemic forces that influence outcomes.

Though simple to use, lurking beneath Kanban's surface is a wide array of scientifically-based methods and techniques that supercharge its basic capabilities for those who wish to harness more from the framework.
 Scrumban for Scrum Teams

"75% of organizations using Scrum will not succeed in getting the benefits they hope from it." 
-- Ken Schwaber (co-creator of Scrum)

Scrum is an incredible success, yet...

Many organizations change Scrum instead of the problem when a need for change is revealed.

Organizations tend to focus on improving the wrong things because systemic issues aren't readily identified.

The challenges Scrum teams face will vary, and their ability to overcome them often have little to do with Scrum itself (or how well / poorly teams practice it).

Sponsors

 


Scrumban can help.  Scrumban is the application of flow-based principles (kanban systems) or the layering of the Kanban Method within a Scrum context. 

During this kickstart, we highlight how the Scrumban framework helps teams and organizations avoid becoming part of the "75%."What to Expect

The Kanban / Scrumban frameworks are designed to deliver benefits at any level of adoption, emphasizing improved understanding over immediate change.  Moreover, teams and organizations are free to improve over time at a pace best suited to their own needs. 

This half-day workshop arms participants with all they need to know in order to begin using Kanban in their environments right away.  Here's a quick overview of what you'll come away with:

  • A Basic Mastery of Core Lean / Kanban Principles & Practices 
  • Orientation to New Metrics and How to Use them to Improve Planning and Drive Improvement
  • A Preliminary Analysis of Your Organization's / Teams Sources of Demand (work requested) and Dissatisfaction (business outcomes that aren't being met)
  • The Value Stream Mapping of your Current Work Process
  • Your Initial Kanban Board Design for Visualizing Work & Measuring Performance (created using ScrumDo.com -- an on-line project management and collaboration tool)
  • A three-month Gold Level Subscription to ScrumDo.com (a $270 value)
  • Follow-up Remote Coaching & Mentoring (limited)

This kickstart program is the perfect solution for quickly ramping up new teams or employees for Kanban / Scrumban practices.Both Practical & Fun!

This half-day kick start is highly interactive, with key learnings emphasized through group exercises.  Participants also get to experience the framework's simplicity and power for themselves through simulated game play (using the GetScrumban game -- our on-line, educational game that walks users through some typical scenarios and evolutions in thinking). How is This Kick Start Different From Other Training?

The combination of game simulation with contemporaneous coaching / instruction allows participants to gain an intuitive understanding and feel of how the Kanban / Scrumban framework can be adjusted to work within their own environments.  Benefit from our instructors' extensive experience helping small teams become masters of their domain, and helping large organizations use Kanban / Scrumban to scale Agile more effectively (10,000+ IT Professionals).  Participants will learn about some of the common traps and pitfalls around:

  • Time-boxed vs. Flow-based projects
  • Pull principles & the Theory of Constraints
  • Visualizing workflow effectively (the way we work)
  • Visualizing policies (how we work)
  • Managing shifting priorities
  • Effectively dealing with interrupt work and multi-tasking
  • Manging flow
  • Balancing demand and capacity
  • Managing external dependencies
  • And more...

 Instructors / Mentors

This kickstart will be led by the only LKU Accredited Kanban Trainer in the Boston area -- Ajay Reddy.  Ajay started his professional career as a software engineer, and spent many years leading development teams and larger IT functions. He now spends the majority of his time helping technology organizations improve performance by successfully adopting agile practices.

Ajay is founder and Chief Process Officer of Code Genesys (a Boston-based IT Solutions company), a managing partner of ScrumDo.com (a cloud-based project management tool for Scrum teams), and a former Associate with David J. Anderson & Associates (the acknowledged "father" of the Kanban Method).  His book on Scrumban is slated to be published later this summer / fall.

Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the New South Africa
Thursday, September 11, 2014, 7 – 10 p.m.

Film Screening, Talk and Reception with Judge Albie Sachs and filmmaker Abby Ginzberg

Alibe Sachs: anti-apartheid activist, lawyer, and Sout African Constitutional Court Judge. Imprisoned, tortured, exiled, blown up by a car bomb and still he fought for justice and reconciliation.

As a young man, Albie Sachs defended those committed to ending apartheid in South Africa. For his actions as a lawyer, he was imprisoned in solitary confinement in Cape Town, tortured through sleep deprivation and forced into exile. In 1988 he was blown up by a car bomb set by the South African security forces in Maputo, Mozambique, which cost him his right arm and the sight of one eye, but miraculously he survived and eventually recovered. Returning to South Africa following the release of Nelson Mandela, Sachs helped write the groundbreaking new constitution and was appointed by President Mandela as one of the first eleven judges of the new Constitutional Court.

Lydian String Quartet: It's About Time (Part 1)
Saturday, November 8, 2014, 8 – 10 p.m.


The program is the first of a two part series, "It's About Time," reflecting the fascination composers have with the exploration of musical time and its effect on the listener.

With Haydn's emotionally complex Quartet in F major, Op. 50 no. 5, "The Dream" as the departure point, the November program offers musical and philosophical contrasts with works by two celebrated American composers, Philip Glass and Elliott Carter. Carter's Quartet no. 1 which was, in his words, his "most extreme adventure into what has been called 'metric modulation,'" while Glass's quartet offers a completely different experience of the flow of time.

To Say Goodbye - Boston, MA
Thursday, Sept 18th 7pm7:00 p.m.Tickets: $10 (+ fee)
“To Say Goodbye” is a feature-length, independent film shot entirely in Minnesota, using actors who live in and/or are native to the state. More importantly, “To Say Goodbye” is a film that will hopefully save lives. It is a film about suicide.

Nearly 40,000 people per year commit suicide in this country, making it the 10thleading cause of death for Americans.

Sadly, every single one of these deaths could have been prevented.

One of the greatest barriers to reducing deaths is that people simply don’t talk about suicide. As a result, people don’t ask for help—for themselves, or for their friends or loved ones. Our goal for this film is to help change that.

The film's writers/producers, Hamid and Tim Torabpour, are hoping to raise awareness about the effects of suicide on the family, friends and community of the victim. Another objective of the film is to offer hope to people who are at risk of attempting suicide, and to help them understand that there's always a better choice than to end one's life.

Healthcare Analytics - The ROI Conundrum

The United States (US) healthcare industry is evolving its use of healthcare data, including data collection (EMR/EHR), data sharing (via health information exchanges) and data analysis.  There are industry champions pioneering frameworks, such as HIMSS EMRAM, in the hope of accelerating healthcare industry standards in the overlapping world of EMR/EHR and analytics.

Given that EMR/EHR deployments have limited ROI by themselves, but require an investment to allow the healthcare industry to achieve the value and well-documented ROI available from data analytics, where are we today?  Is it true that the healthcare industry must commit, culturally, to become a data-driven culture, incented economically to support optimum health at the lowest cost?  Will healthcare industry CFOs and other C-level executives be capable of managing both quality and cost, understanding the interplay between the two?

The Good Doctor
Thursday, November 20, 2014, 8 – 11 p.m.

This Broadway hit is a composite of Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov. In one sketch a fiesty old woman storms a bank and upbraids the manager for his gout and lack of money. In another, a father takes his son to a house where he will be initiated into the mysteries of sex, only to relent at the last moment and leave the boy more perplexed than ever. In another sketch, a crafty seducer goes to work on a wedded woman, only to realize that the woman has been in command from the first overture. Let us not forget the classic tale of a man who offers to drown himself for three rubles. The stories are droll, the portraits affectionate, the humor infectious and the fun unending.

Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical,SPRING AWAKENINGis a rock musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 expressionist play about the trials and tribulations, and the exhilaration of the teen years.

It's Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz -- a boy so traumatized by puberty he can't concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they've ever felt.SPRING AWAKENINGexplores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children.SPRING AWAKENINGcelebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget.


This celebration of rebellion provides the perfect opportunity to feature performers of all types, as well as the flexibility to creatively use costumes, set pieces, and lighting. Featuring a pop-rock score, this is an ideal show for talented vocalists with strong acting abilities.

FALL 2014: WEDNESDAYS 3:45 - 5:30 p.m. After-school Circus Arts Program for kids aged 7 - teen. 9/10-12/17, no class November 26th (Thanksgiving Week).

Calling all kids aged 7 - teen! Run away with the circus afterschool without actually having to leave home.  Circus stars and Moody Street Circus Directors Sacha and Melinda Pavlata host this supportive, challenging and affirming after-school program in their beautiful circus studio.  Students must be dressed in appropriate workout attire (see below) and be able to listen and follow directions for maximum safety of all participants. Classes meet Wednesdays from 3:45 - 5:30 p.m.

***We cap attendance at 10 kids to ensure maximum time on all equipment and to promote the highest quality experience for all.

Please call or email Melinda (melinda@cirquepassion.com) at Moody Street Circus at 781 893 2491 with questions, to check if there is room in the session and/or to register and reserve a spot for your child.

Students in our Moody Street Circus Afterschool Program will practice tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola, rolling globe, tightrope walking, trampoline, juggling skills and mini trampoline.  They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, rings, web, lyra and silks.

Attire:  Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone, even for parents who are dropping off and picking up. Parents and caregivers are always welcome to stay and watch the action on our comfy studio futons.  Camp is conducted barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire.  Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids.  We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys.  Kids should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks.

*Waiver forms must be completed for each camper or participation in camp will not be allowed.  We will send you a waiver form after you have registered, or you can request one prior by emailing meinda@cirquepassion.com.

If you have any additional questions, please call Melinda at Moody Street Circus : 781 893 2491.

 

 

Reviews of Moody Street Circus:

Philippe Petit, renowned funambulist most recently featured in Man on Wire, writes of Sacha Pavlata, Moody Street Circus Founder:

“I met Alexandre Pavlata in 1972 at the Cirque d’Hiver of Paris.  He was helping some kids, backstage, to perfect their somersaults.  I remember the gentle yet strong way he was directing their progresses, there was a lot of joy, but the results were prompt.

 

As I watch Sacha over the years, becoming slowly the “best circus teacher” (his well-earned reputation today), I realized that a very special chemistry was the secret of his so unique ability:  Sacha could offer in the classes he gave, the flavor of European Circus Tradition.  He was born and raised in a traveling circus family, therefore was quickly acquainted with the constant training, the tough discipline, the respect for other artists, and the ability to understand rigging and to perform all aspects of circus profession.

 

But Sacha had to offer, blended to this heritage, the benefits of his own life and personality:  he has traveled all over the world, therefore mastering several languages, he had coached numerous pupils of diverse ways of life, nationalities, age, goals and talents, had become a father, and had developed a sparkling intelligence at introducing the unfamiliar to a demanding craft, with surprising results.

 

It is the blending of the deeply traditional world of European circuses, with a modern international expertise that made the instruction of Master Teacher Pavlata so effective, and so rich, so outstanding."

 

"I love this place; I want to live here! I could sleep on the trapeze!!!"  (Birthday girl Stella Hu)

"This was the most exciting party my daughter has ever attended!" (Wellesley Mom)

“My 5th grade daughter has been taking a circus class at Moody Street Circus and she loves it! Her favorite activities are the silks and the lyra. It gives her such a sense of freedom and accomplishment! I see it every time she comes back from class. Thank you Melinda and Sacha for encouraging the students to push their limits in a safe, fun environment!” --
