Battling Bullying

altSANTA CRUZ > Screening of documentary Bully and accompanying workshop to be held at the Del Mar Theatre

A special screening of the documentary Bully will take place at the Del Mar Theatre on Tuesday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m. A free parenting workshop on handling bullying issues will follow from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Both the screening and the workshop are courtesy of a partnership between the Del Mar Theatre and the Positive Parenting Program (Triple P).

Tripe P is a local parent education program through First 5 Santa Cruz County that offers free workshops, seminars, and group and individual consultations in both English and Spanish. The program was established two years ago to promote healthier, stronger families locally. (You can read more about the program in this previous GT blog.)


The workshop will be led by local Chris O’Halloran, an accredited practitioner with years of experience in parent education, and will cover topics ranging from recognizing different forms of bullying to handling situations where bullying is taking place.

Bully was recently bumped down from an R (for language) rating to a more accessible PG-13 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America, after considerable pressure from anti-bullying advocacy groups and the film’s creators. Parents comfortable with a little bit of harsh language should feel free to bring their school-age children along. The rating change also means that the film can now be freely shown in high schools—a target audience given the documentary’s content.

Matinee prices will apply for the screening. To register for the workshop, contact Chris O’Halloran at 818-9664 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or visit the First 5 website.

Will there be any evening workshops available for parents? We both work full-time, but would like to attend one of these.

Evening showing would've been better for many working parents.

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
