ESILL, founded in 1977, was the brainchild of a retired clinical psychologist, Donald Lester who believed that intellectual stimulation and continuing development were the ingredients of a long and enriched life. Lester was sure that a healthy retirement was not the time for mental lethargy, but an opportunity for mental pursuits often put aside for business and family responsibilities. The goal the founders set was to seek instructors who not only taught what they knew, but would challenge themselves to study new topics of interest to them, and share that knowledge. We live on in that spirit.
ESILL offers two terms beginning in February and September to students 12 and over. Courses are held in Fairhope, Daphne, Spanish Fort and Foley. Our courses are all about enjoyment and self-enrichment. There are no tests and no grades. All of our instructors share a passion for teaching and bring a wealth of personal experience to the classroom. Just bring your interest and willingness to participate, and have fun!
If you wish to teach or have a course request, please call Laurie Wiggins at 990-5555.

ANCIENT WISDOM OF THE WORLD This course explores spiritual, metaphysical, mystical and mythical lore from various traditions and cultures. Throughout history, people have sought an understanding of the mysteries of the universe, and enlightenment as to the connections among nature, the human, and the divine. These explorations have had a large influence on philosophical, theological, political and artistic expression right up through the 20th century. In this course and its successor, Ancient Wisdom of the World, Continued, we will have vigorous discussion on topics that will include reincarnation, karma, immortality, powers latent in man, cycles of time, the seven bodies of man, the chakras, invisible helpers, nature spirits, the kingdoms of nature, mortals and immortals, astral and mental planes, etheric body and others. A video featuring American mythologist Joseph Campbell, from Bill Moyers’ PBS series, The Power of Myth, will be shown. Additionally, the instructor will lend books to students from the vast library entrusted to him by the Mobile Theosophical Society. Small materials fee.
ANCIENT WISDOM OF THE WORLD, CONTINUED This course is a continuation of the course above. Students need not to have taken the prior course to attend this one.
AQUA ZUMBA New course! Splash your way into shape with an invigorating, low-impact aquatic exercise. Known as the Zumba "pool party", the Aqua Zumba program gives new meaning to the idea of a refreshing workout. Zumba is a Latin-inspired exercise program known for its upbeat world music and energetic, easy-to-follow dance-style routines. Its philosophy is that fitness should be fun and something you look forward to doing. We’ll integrate that with traditional aquatic fitness disciplines, blending it all together into a workout that is cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
ART HISTORY: PREHISTORY TO THE MIDDLE AGES New Course! This course seeks to introduce students to the history of artistic production and its various movements from prehistory through to the end of the medieval period. It will focus on the art of Western Europe, but conclude with a special section on Byzantine art. The focus will be on major artistic periods and “movements,” using illustrative examples of art objects to understand what art is and what art historians do. Materials fee $1.
ART HISTORY: THE RENAISSANCE TO THE PRESENT New Course! This course will pick up where Art History from Prehistory to the Middle Ages leaves off, examining the trends and developments of artistic production from the Renaissance through to the present day. Again, the course will utilize examples of art objects to examine both the movements that comprise art history and to illustrate what art history as a discipline hopes to accomplish. Materials fee $1.
CAKE DECORATING AND HOLIDAY BAKING New Course! The holidays are just around the corner, and in these five sessions we will be making a variety of baked items which can easily be adapted to fit many seasons. In addition to the projects, we will emphasize the "whys" behind the basic baking techniques that ensure success. You will make (and enjoy!) holiday sugar cookies, a cupcake bouquet/topiary, petit fours, cake balls, and a Bride of Frankenstein cake (!) to celebrate Halloween, design an ombré cake and make ganache. Yum! Materials fee $35. Class size is limited.
CHAIR YOGA - SITTING AND STANDING This course is helpful for anyone who wants to exercise but has difficulty with floor postures (weight on hands and knees or repetitive movement on and off the floor) because of knee pain, extra weight, arthritis, etc. It begins with breath work and seated yoga postures in a chair. We then stand by the chair (or use the wall) to improve balance and strength in standing poses. Everyone has the option to stay in their chairs or wheelchairs or lie on the floor for relaxation at the end. This course will be given twice; you might wish to sign up for both for the best benefit.

Class size is limited.
DEMENTIA: BECOMING A COMPASSIONATE CAREGIVER Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia is a tremendous challenge that can be both frustrating and frightening.

Students will receive information about screening for dementia, and the treatment available. You will learn how the environment affects persons with the disease, and how as a caregiver you can relate to them to create positive outcomes. There will be time for discussion in each class. This course is designed for caregivers and those employed in care-giving professions, and is not recommended for people who suffer from dementia.

ESSENTIAL OILS AND HEALING HERBS Uplifting, purifying, energizing, calming -- the use of essential oils and herbs you can grow in your own garden or on the windowsill for medicine, emotional clearing, flavoring, and fragrance dates back thousands of years.

You’ll also come to know the twelve significant oils of scripture, from spikenard (John12:3) to "the rose of Sharon" (Song of Solomon 2:1).

JOHN KEATS: SOME FAVORITE SONNETS, ODES AND LETTERS New Course! One scholar reminds us that “the English language reached one of its pinnacles…in one three-and-a-half week period in April and May 1819, and September ’19, when Keats (1795-1821) wrote “Ode on a Grecian Urn, “Ode to a Nightingale”, Ode on Melancholy” and “To Autumn”. In our reading together, we will scale that pinnacle. At our last class meeting, we will watch the recent film about Keats and his love for Fanny Brawne, “Bright Star”.

THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF GIUSEPPE VERDI New Course! Marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Italian composer and patriot, Giuseppe Verdi, this course will concentrate on his biography, as his life span coincided with the historic emergence of the Italian nation. During the 17th and 18th centuries, opera was the most extravagant entertainment of European society. During the mid-19th century as the Romantic Movement progressed, the rise of nationalism that was sweeping Europe began to be reflected in orchestral and operatic compositions. Verdi’s third opera, Nabucco, written in 1842, was the first of the Italian national operas, and its successful premiere ensured his future as an opera composer. Students necessarily don’t have to be opera buffs to enjoy this course!

If you are pregnant, injured, post-surgery, overweight, sedentary, out of shape, have limited mobility, chronic pain, knee/hip replacements, or bone disorders you can make that happen!

THE WRITE STUFF: FUN WITH FICTION WRITING New Course! Want to write, but don’t know where to begin? Do you write, but want to take your writing to the next level? Are you a victim of writer’s block or (worse!) procrastination? Or the “I want to write, but…” syndrome? Writing is a solitary pursuit, but writers need contact with other writers and a structure to what they are doing. We will begin with the nuts and bolts, looking at some published short stories and asking ourselves, “What is going on here?” We will focus on the elements of a story plot, character, setting, point of view, dialogue and scene, beginnings and endings. We will have an in-class writing exercise and “homework” to give you some practice in the various elements that go into crafting a story. You can start from scratch or bring in a piece you are trying to “wrestle into submission” but that is defeating you at every turn. Class members can share their work by reading it in class, IF they want to. We will also discuss your style, your natural voice and talk about possible markets for your work. And we will have fun doing it! If you have a lap top, bring it to class. Small copying fee.
YIN YOGA New Course! Yin Yoga is a quiet, simple practice available to any level of physical ability. It targets the connective tissues ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body rather than the muscles. It uses mostly seated poses held for three to five minutes. Yin Yoga is very enjoyable and much like a meditative practice that increases energy flow and flexibility in the entire body while helping to quiet and calm the mind. Bring a yoga mat and either a small, tightly woven blanket or a couple of bath or beach towels for comfort props.
YOGA FOR FITNESS AND STRESS MANAGEMENT This course emphasizes balance between getting a workout for all the major muscles in your body and releasing into each pose, which include upright, forward, backward, sideways, twisting and inverted. As you practice yoga with emphasis on your breath and alignment, you become naturally more active and fit. And as you do yoga you will feel better about yourself in body, mind and spirit. You can explore your limits without feeling exhausted. After a yoga session you will feel refreshed, full of energy and ready for anything with a calmer outlook on life. Bring a yoga mat and towel.
