Day One: Fielding Your Dreams

If you built it, what would "it" be? Join us for a hero's journey into the mysterious corn fields of Heaven...no, Iowa. Bring a loved one with you as we explore baseball, family and where we might end up if we are brave enough to go the distance. Sign up at: https://www.yesandexercise.org/fieldofdreams In 2004, Robert Cochrane, PhD, the instructor and the creator of this course, heard a voice while watching the Field of Dreams. It told him to take his dad, Dan, on a two month, 20,000 mile road trip to see all 30 MLB stadiums. Dan was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2001, so they knew they had to go while they could. They did and made the award-winning documentary series, Boys of Summer from their experience. This new, evidence-based, clinically-tested writing program is open to everyone, with an emphasis on the parent/child relationship - we encourage you to sign up with your family. We meet online for 90 minutes, once per week over the course of 16 weeks. Participants will write one page per week about their experience and share it on a password-protected Google Drive with classmates. Each participant is also expected to read and leave feedback on two of their fellow classmates pages as this is an ensemble-based program. We will start each session by moving to music that is themed to the stage of the Hero's Journey, then play improvisation games that support our growth, understanding and connection to one another. We will also watch clips from the Field of Dreams that demonstrate stages of the Hero's Journey. All sessions will be recorded so that students who have to miss a session at its scheduled time can catch up at their convenience.
