Book Launch: Living On The Fringe: A Memoir by Abraham Entin

Sunday, September 15th 3 – 5 PM

When Ed Entin decided to torch his draft card, everything about his life changed. He had his whole life mapped out. It was 1966 and Eddie had just been accepted into Yale Law School — his ticket out of the Army and Vietnam and into a life of secure prosperity. It only took one day, one decision to change the course of his life. What follows is a sometimes harrowing, often hilarious, and always illuminating ten-year journey through the social, political, and spiritual turmoil of the era.

For anyone wondering how it was back then — or how to get through right now— Living on the Fringe provides a look at how one person who waded into the turbulent waters of his time came out whole, dry, and ready to face the future. And with a new name to match the person he had become.

Join us at Occidental Center for the Arts on Sunday, September 15th from 3 – 5 PM for music and song, selected readings, Q&A, book sales and signing. Refreshments are available by donation, beer and wine for sale. Admission is free, but all donations happily accepted!

About the Author: After the events described in this memoir, Abraham and his wife Rachael Flug went on to create Diaperaps Ltd., a business that helped revitalize cloth diapering for the benefit of babies and the environment. He founded the Sonoma County affiliate of Move to Amend and has written extensively about corporate personhood, money and debt. He is very proud to have received a certificate of appreciation from Occupy Santa Rosa for his “tireless support of the Occupy Movement and his work to end corporate greed and corruption”.

At seventy-four, Abraham Entin is still out rousing the rabble.

Abraham is a singer, a songwriter and a storyteller, and dances at every opportunity. He is a long-time student of Rudolf Steiner’s social ideas and is particularly interested in how spiritual perspectives influence and help bring about positive social change.

Abraham’s website is www.abrahamentin.com. where you can hear his music, read other work and find out how to bring him to your community for a performance.

 

Heidi Boucher

Sat, September 14, 2019.   1:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Polcum Springs.   Laytonville, CA

The time between a person’s crossing the threshold of death and the burial or cremation is a powerful period of transition for both the person who has died and for grieving family and friends. When families are supported in reclaiming these powerful experiences in their own unique ways, they find that the healing process is deepened and connections with one another are strengthened.

Join Heidi Boucher and others for an intimate look at the benefits of family directed funerals and after-death care in the home from practical, emotional and sacred perspectives. Topics that will be touched upon in this half-day workshop include:

o What is a family-directed funeral

o Understanding death care choices

o Honoring the deceased without unnecessary costs

o Levels of involvement and use of community professionals

o Caring for the body for up to three days following death

o Washing and dressing the body

o Creating a sacred space for loved ones to gather

About Heidi Boucher

Heidi Boucher has over 30 years experience guiding families in caring for their own dead. Heidi feels passionately about family choices in caring for their own loved ones after death and creating sacred spaces for families to say goodbye. Bringing beauty, being practical and instilling a sense of reverence are her guiding points in consulting families on home death care.

Heidi has also been involved with independent film, television and theater for over 25 years. She has worked as a producer, director and production designer on several award-winning feature films, shorts, music videos, commercials, broadcast television and stage productions. She recently wrote, produced and directed the award-winning film, In The Parlor: The Final Good Bye, an intimate portrait of three families choosing the home death care option, which combines both of her professions and documents the experience of families leading up to and after death. She lectures and provides workshops worldwide on the topic of caring for the dead.

SPACE IS LIMITED. Please enroll by September 7, 2019
