Open House and Free Lecture in Honor of World Hypnotism Day R

ichard Ervin, certified hypnotist and owner of Ervin Hypnosis Center, in Bartlett, will hold an open house and offer a free

lecture in honor of World Hypnotism Day on January 4. The open house will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. and the lecture will be held at 7 p.m. that day at the center. Er- vin will be available to answer questions about hypnosis, and his lecture will address how hypnosis can help with New Year’s resolutions. World Hypnotism Day was created to educate the public and promote the ben-

efits of hypnosis, Ervin explains. “Since this is a time of the year when many people resolve to improve their health, lifestyle and quality of life, it is a perfect opportunity to look at the tools to achieve these goals—and hypnosis is one of those tools,” he says. In his presentation, he will provide a brief history of hypnosis, explain how hypnosis can help with New Year’s resolutions and give a hypnosis demonstration. The audience will be able to decide whether it will be a group demonstration or an individual one. “Hypnosis is such a wonderful tool to help individuals achieve their goals,

eliminate bad habits or establish good ones or just plain relax,” Ervin says. “Dur- ing hypnosis you are relaxed and aware of what is happening around you. You are simply more open to positive suggestions that enable you to achieve what you want more easily, naturally and comfortably.” World Hypnotism Day is the perfect time to explore new beginnings, he adds.

Cost: Free. Location: 2865 Summer Oaks, Ste. 110, Bartlett. For more information, call 901-489-5481 or visit

Oleo Acres Farm Offers Winter Sowing Class in January


leo Acres, an “old-fashioned” farm in Stanton, is offering a Winter Sowing Class this month. The class will be held at 10

a.m. on January 19 at the farm. “Winter sowing is ideal for gardeners who want to start their

own seed but lack greenhouse facilities or space,” says Tim Ammons, who owns and operates Oleo Acres with his wife, Betty. “Winter sowing is a more natural way of growing vegetables. You plant in the winter and then sprout with the natural cycle of nature.” Any plant—such as tomatoes, peppers and herbs—can be winter-sown, Ammons says, although he doesn’t recommend this approach for beans, peas, okra and corn. Each participant should bring a clean gallon milk jug (or as many as desired).

Optional items to bring include duct tape, a razor knife and a black permanent marker. The farm will have some of these items available for those who need them. The farm also will provide potting soil. The class will be held in the greenhouse— rain, snow, sleet or shine. Besides being a working farm, Oleo Acres offers special events and educational

group tours that focus on environmentally-friendly living and communing with na- ture. Tim and Betty Ammons provide lessons on farming that are focused on preser- vation of old farm ways and traditions as well as sustainable living. The farm’s motto is “Going green the old-fashioned way.”

Cost: $10 adults; children 12 and younger are free. Location: 269 McDonald Rd., Stanton. For more information, call 731-443-0059 or visit OleoAcresFarm.webs. com/ or on Facebook.
