Touted by attendees as our most impactful program, spending even a few minutes in meditation can reconnect you with a sense of calm and inner peace. Anyone can practice meditation. It's simple, inexpensive and doesn't require any special equipment. You can bring mindfulness to any of your daily activities… out for a walk, riding the bus, waiting at the doctor's office or even in the middle of a difficult business meeting. Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. Mindfulness meditation will be led by Sarah Moore M.D., a mind-body practitioner, therapist, and physician at the Dean Hematology and Oncology Clinic. Sarah has been practicing meditation for 14 years and teaching meditation to groups and individuals for the past six years. Her personal practice has brought her much peace, joy and stability, and she is excited to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with others. Chairs will be available. Walk-ins are welcome. These sessions are provided through the generous support of Dean Clinic.

Al Ringling Theatre 136 4th Ave, Baraboo, WI 53913

Friday and Saturday, September 5 & 6, 12 & 13 - 7:30 PM
Sunday, September 7 - 2:00 PM
Sunday, September 14 - 1:00 PM

“Fishwrap” chronicles a small-town newspaper’s struggles against local corruption and the financial hardships posed by the rise of online news. Based on Bromley’s experiences in 17 years writing for Sauk County’s daily newspaper, the Baraboo News Republic, “Fishwrap” tells the story of a newspaper staff fighting internal corporate politics as they seek to break a major story. Meanwhile, they strive to keep the paper in the black as readers forsake paid subscriptions to read news online for free. Along the way, Bromley’s clever characters act out the hilarious, truth-is-funnier-than-fiction experiences he has witnessed in a local newsroom.

Our Story:The Artists for the Al are a group or local artists who are getting together to create a way to help the Al Ringling Theatre in its restoration. We took our motivation from the local students who do a Give Back Concert every year. This is our way to have the "Adults" give back to our gem of a theatre.

Wine & Art for GBS

Date(s): 10/11/2014

12-3pm

Fawn Creek Winery Wisconsin Dells, WI
The goal for my first fundraiser is to raise as much money as possible for the GBS-CIDP Foundation International for research and those that are less fortunate.

Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) is an auto-immune disorder that affects the peripheral nervous system. It is a rare disorder that attacks the nerves, which usually starts out with tingling and weakness in the extremities. These sensations can quickly spread, eventually paralyzing the entire body. Most people with this condition need to be hospitalized to receive proper treatment. The cause of GBS is unknown,
but is often preceded by an infectious illness such as respiratory infection or the stomach flu. Treatment
for GBS is IVIG (high dose Immunoglobulin therapy) and Plasmapheresis. The recovery time for GBS is different for every patient and can range from days, weeks, months, and even years. I was diagnosed with GBS on March 23rd
at UW-Hospital in Madison for 2 months. I was diagnosed by a spinal tap which illustrated my cerebrospinal fluid protein being higher than normal. A nerve conduction velocity test (NCV) was also done following the diagnosis, which illustrates slower signals travelling along the nerves. Over a
short amount of time (Approximately 2 days), GBS had affected my respiratory system which caused my lungs to collapse. I was placed on a ventilator for 5 1⁄2 weeks. While vented, I was placed into an induced coma for 3 weeks to allow my body to rest. Doctors started out by giving me 4 rounds of IVIG treatment, which didn’t show any sign of positive change. They decided to place a clavicle port for
plasmapheresis exchange. I received 7 rounds of plasma exchange and soon after the 5th to show signs of movement—was it the plasma or my fight for life? Doctors, nurses and I will never know. I came home to recover in May 2010 and started out-patient rehabilitation including speech,
occupational and physical therapies which lasted approximately 4-5 months. I have been blessed with a positive recovery and have become a Liaison for the GBS Foundation in the Madison area. I provide support, literature and patient visits to help those affected by this debilitating
disorder.
