Page 20 THE PETERBOROUG H TRAN SCRIPT July 17, 1980 Village Life HEALTH IN SHARON -- Among those at the Holistic Health conference in Sharon on Sunday were therapist Barbara Bierkoe-Peer, director Carl Shapley, guest Gary Scurtas of Salem, Mass. and coordinator Kathleen Kalina. Health inside and out The purpose may have been serious but the crowd was plain- ly having fun as the Holistic Health Institute opened in Sharon on Sunday afternoon. There seemed to be about 200 people at the Sharon Hostel of Gena and Carl Shapley, where the non-profit institute will be permanently situated. They at- tended lectures and workshops on the woodsy grounds. Sunday was the first day and open house of the school that will offer classes in many areas to people interested in learning new ways to enhance their well- being. Some of the subjects offered will be comparatively tradition- al -- Robert Longacre of Wal- pole will conduct a building sem- inar Aug. 9, characterized by new approaches. Pamela Faith Lerman will perform an improv- isational dance on the night of Aug. 22. Celeste Longacre will lead a canning workshop in Sop- tember. Co-counselling, a currently popular therapy in which parti- cipants learn to help one an- other, will be taught by Gena Shapley for eight weeks. At the present time, with more credit being given to mental and spiritual healing by such people as Norman Cousins (former Sat- urday Review editor whose book and lectures outline his experi- ence in this regard), awareness of new and ancient healing arts will be offered at Sharon. Im- proving mental well-beiug, un- derstanding the messages the body is sending, re-learning what long ago generations knew, all will be part of the program there. Among the titles of coming seminars are: Numerology -- charting numbers and the rela- tionship of these patterns to life; Ontology -- getting in touch with your inner teacher; Reflexology -- treatments involving pressure on foot parts; Polarity -- bal- ance and health counselling. Col- or Sound and Form and Meta- physical Healing are other titles. As Carl Shapley says in a let- ter introducing the institute he will direct, it will fill "a long rec- ognized need in this central area of northern New England for a comprehensive service in educa- tion and assistance to those many who choose to pursue non- medical health maintenance and improved awareness and aliveness in mind, body and spirit". Carl Shapley has a long history of study and work in new age spiritual and educational areas. The practitioners endorsed by and teaching at the Sharon cen- ter include coordinator Kathleen Kalina, a LPN and a master's degree candidate. She has taught at the college level and is a published writer of books. "Medical Clairvoyance" is ohe subject she will describe, to aid students to get in touch with their own healing skills. Barbara Bierkoi-Peer, M.Ed., besides providing sessions of psychotherapy, will hold suppor- tive hypnotherapy sessions to af- fect change in destructive hab- its. Also, she directs participants in the recall of past lives, a most unusual experience. A full weekend of art therapy directed by Ulrike Chamberlain, M.A., will be offered in the near future. The Shapleys and the others taking part in operating the cen- ter plan this to be a permanent, varied and local source. It will, they say, "act as a communica- tions and referral base as well as offer modest facilities for on-lo- cation appointments with practi- tioners it endorses." We use our brains very little, and when we do, it is only to make excuses for our reflexes and our instincts -- only to make our acts appear more studied. f Ethan Allen S L,e 10 % to 20 % on 4 classic bedrooms-formal or informal Carry on a tradition of elegance with our magnificent Georgian Court bedroom.., and save too!

Sat. ti I 5 P.M. % J Doctor goes to work Mter years of study, a career begins Monday at Monadnock Hospital. Dr. Peter Forsell will begin his medical practice as a specialist in internal medicine, sharing an office with Dis. Fred Richard- son and Mark Kelley in the office wing at MCH. Dr. Forsell has spent the last five years at Mary Hitchcock Hospital, Hanover, as an intern and resident, after doing his undergraduate work at Williams College and taking his medical degree at Tufts Medical School. "Internal medicine" covers considerable territory; Dr. Forsell said that anything starting with a stomachache might be his problem. Beyond that, he is concerned with the functions of the liver and pancreas, as well as the stomach and bowels (called gastro-enterology). Although the doctors are in- dividually in business, they share office space, and also take turns being available for after- hours emergencies. Addition of the new man means that each is only on call every third night instead of every other night -- con- siderable relief. "Sometimes we dream of owning a hardware store", said the doctor, since a shopkeeper rarely is called at 2 a.m. Dr. Forsell's own secretary, Linda Baker, started work this week, helping prepare for the reception of patients on Monday. Dr. Forsell is a lifelong New Englander, spending his winters in Walpole, Mass. and summers on Lake Winnepesankee as a bey. When his years at Hanover were drawing to a close, he and his wife Mary began looking for a place to live, in the country but not too far from city amenities, and with a good hospital. "We wanted a nice place to live", he said, with skiing and summer outdoor activities. They live on Nichols Rd. in the Pineridge section of Peter- borough. Mrs. Forsell has been an art teacher, but now is at home with their three-year-old son Ben- jamin and baby daughter Kate, four months. Festival dates set Rain or shine, the annual Pe- terborough Festival, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Friday and Satur- day, AUg. 8 and 9. Robert Abbott, chairman for the event, reports that a really great celebration of "Our Town" is well under way. There will be the usual hand concerts, mimes and square dance performances. A foot race will start at Adams Playground The course goes along Windy Row to MacDowell Road, over High Street and back to the playground. Eight craftsmen have ar- ranged for booths on the Grove Dr. Kilson is college dean Dr. Marion Kilson has been Street promenade and in addi- tion various civic groups are planning booths, including the Peterborough Woman's Club, the Monadnock Day Care Center, the Lionesses, the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, the Baha'i Faith and the American Legion. A children's pet show will be held in Putnam Park Saturday morning and later in the day, Kendall Kardt will conduct a children's concert there. Monadnook Music is present- ing a concert of Mozart's "Don Giovanni" in concert form on Saturday evening in the Town House. The sixth annual Monad- neck Antique Show and Sale will be held both days in the Unitar- ian Church. Special sales are also antici- pated in the local stores. Dinner Library Comer ANN (;EISEL iktcrl)-rough l,il)rafian Two new biographies this week provide a different look at important figures in American history, though from different periods. "The Rise of Theodore Roose- velt", by Edmund Morris, fo- cuses on Roosevelt's varied per- sonalities and the "inevitabili- ty" of his Presidency. The book is concentrated on TR's life from 1858-1901, during which time he was married twice, fathered six children, held a variety of politi- cal positions, led his famous "Rough Riders" in the Spanish- American War, and, eventually, served as Vice-President under William McKinley. Richard M. Rollins, in "The Long Journey of Noah Webster", also takes a fresh approach to the man behind the dictionary, and looks at Webster's change from a youthful idealist in the Revolutionary days to a cynical, fatalistic, and highly religious man in the early 1800s. Rollins has produced a well-researched and interesting work on the in- fluences on Webster and his atti- tudes and accomplishments.
