It's a coffee & tea happy hour on the 49th annual Earth Day celebration! Spend the evening at One World Cafe sipping a coffee, espresso drink or tea ... all proceeds go to a local environmental group. Snacks are provided or bring your own to share. Arrive any time for drinks or snacks.... At 6:00 pm, there will be a coffee roasting demo. At 7:00 pm, there will be a showing of An Incovenient Sequel: Truth to Power. Over ten years later, after the release of An Inconvenient Truth, the sequel looks at what the intervening decade has brought ... a furious acceleration of climate discoveries, natural disasters, and changes in the global economy and in the US political climate. All coffees roasted at the cafe are fair-trade and organic produced by a machine with minimal greenhouse gas emissions. Stay tuned for more info on a possible speaker from a local eco-group or suggest a speaker below in the comments!
I have 3 extra complementary tickets to see a screening of Seth Rogen's movie Long Shot on 4/24. It also stars Charlize Theron. "Fred Flarsky is a gifted and free-spirited journalist who has a knack for getting into trouble. Charlotte Field is one of the most influential women in the world -- a smart, sophisticated and accomplished politician. When Fred unexpectedly runs into Charlotte, he soon realizes that she was his former baby sitter and childhood crush. When Charlotte decides to make a run for the presidency, she impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter -- much to the dismay of her trusted advisers." Please claim one only if you are sure that you can attend. You must confirm the day before (by noon) to avoid losing the seat. Message me with questions. If you are waitlisted, please check back and/or message me. I believe that it's general seating. I will be there by at least 7:00 to get a decent seat as it starts at 7:30. We need to be seated at the same time. Please arrive promptly no later than 7:00. We can grab a snack after.
Enjoy three workshop sessions that explore Taoist healing practices for mind & body. Donations appreciated or attend for free. This event is part of a global celebration... World Tai Chi & Qigong Day 2019! Held in cities and towns across 65 nations, this day's events helps to educate the public about the Taoist healing arts. 9:30 AM | Tancheon Breathing The first pillar of Taoist practice is breathing into the "tancheon" or lower-abdomen. Tancheon is a Korean term that defines this area as the most essential energy center for building Qi in the human body. Learn basic tancheon breathing and try techniques for increasing power and strength. 10:15 AM | Energy Anatomy Once enough Qi has accumulated in the lower tancheon, practitioners can then begin to circulate this vital energy in the body's energy system. Discover how the Taoist three treasures (chakras) makes this process possible during guided meditation. 11:00 AM | Qigong Practice Combining tancheon breathing and Qi circulation, Qigong is a moving meditation that allows us to pull in energy form the environment. We'll practice various sequences that can harmonize our inner landscape with the universal energy of nature. Anyone can benefit; no experience is required to participate in one or all three sessions with these extraordinary healing practices. All sessions are by-donation as part of a benefit for the SunDo Taoist Healing Arts Retreat Center in Vermont.
