The search for solitude has been at the core of Chinese civilization ever since it began 5,000 years ago. Spending time alone, usually in the mountains, has been an essential part of all three major spiritual traditions in China from their very beginning, and it continues to be so today. Bill Porter, a renowned scholar of Chinese poetry and Buddhist texts who writes under the pseudonym Red Pine, will give a slide presentation and talk about this tradition based on his book Road to Heaven: Encounters with Chinese Hermits. His book has become a best-seller in China, where it has sold a quarter of a million copies in its Chinese translation 空谷幽蘭. He will also share poetry from his recent book, Finding Them Gone: Visiting China's Poets of the Past.
Books for purchase will be available immediately following the lecture, and Bill Porter will sign and greet guests at this time. This event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Whether you have meditated for a long time or have never meditated, come join us for this time of practice together. Come to relax, quiet your mind, learn how to experience less suffering and stress, explore Buddhist philosophy and psychology, just talk about what it means to live from compassion and awareness -- or come because you are curious. This group meets on Tuesdays from 5 - 6 p.m. in in Chapin Chapel, and is led by Mark Hart, Buddhist Advisor.
Join us for the second program in the "At the Intersections" series, featuring a panel discussion on how gender, religion, faith and spirituality intersect. We will be addressing the ways in which gender within a faith or spiritual tradition can be designated, as well as the ways those outside of the faith may interpret gender within it. How do faith and spirituality impact our relationship to gender, and how can gender be understood through faith and spirituality? There will be pizza!

Each summer, the Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, provides thousands of New York City children with unforgettable summer experiences that unlock their limitless potential.
Perhaps you love working with children. Running across the ball field, washing off the glitter glue, or swimming in the lake; with your cabin group laughing around you you’ll be in your element. Or maybe you’re more organized than artsy; better at making plans than making s’mores. You can’t carry a tune, but your writing skills are top-notch.
Since 1877, the Fresh Air Fund has worked with more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities. Each year, thousands of children experience outdoor summer adventures through visits with volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada and at the Fund’s five overnight camps in Fishkill, NY. Fresh Air children also participate in year-round leadership and educational programs.

During January interterm nine students from Amherst, UMass, Smith, and Mount Holyoke participated in “Adventures in Photography,” an interterm course taught by Joshua Baum and Takudzwa Tapfuma. Over the five-day course, students learned fundamental techniques of digital photography: manual exposure, composition, lighting, and post-production. The class ventured into the field for hands-on excursions to the New England Peace Pagoda, Montague Bookmill and downtown Northampton. The images in this exhibit are a selection of work created during the class.
Thank you to the Department of Art and the History of Art, and the Center for Community Engagement for sponsoring the course, and to Valentine Dining Hall for hosting this exhibition.
