With all the chaos going on in our world, it is even more important than ever that we take care of our minds and hearts today. We are having a different kind of adventure with our next philosophy group discussion so we can grow not only physically at the Ann Arbor Adventure club but also mentally. Let us be the change we want to see in this world. We will be having our next meetup at 143 Payeur Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48108 starting at 4:00pm on Sunday, October 20th. We begin each session with playing music including strings, percussion instruments, etc. followed by the practice of mindfulness meditation to center ourselves and to commune as a group. This is followed by the reading of a passage, a quote or questions relevant to growth, truth or the expansion of consciousness, and then an open discussion. During this discussion period, we also share different dishes that people may bring. Please bring something to drink to keep yourself hydrated. Thank you and Peace, everyone. Namaste. P.S. Bringing something to share is totally optional but bringing an open mind is highly encouraged.
Monday night volleyball resumes for 2019! Be sure to come if you sign up - no last minute cancellations please! Note we only meet when school is held, so any snow days or other school closure also cancels this meetup. Cost is $3.
For anybody interested, let us learn poi together this Monday. In the future, we may hire a poi trainer to help us with the basics. As we progress, we can actually introduce fire poi spinning. Poi is a form of dance, where weights on the ends of tethers are swung through rhythmical patterns. The word poi comes from the Maori people of Aotearoa (a.k.a. New Zealand). Poi dance is part of Maori tradition. The poi dancing outside of Maori culture is a more recent development, and is quite different than traditional Maori poi. Poi was popularized throughout the world largely through the performance art of fire spinning, which is not part of Maori tradition or culture. Nobody seems to know who first invented “fire poi,” or when it happened. This new version of poi was only loosely based on traditional Maori poi, and quickly evolved as it spread around the world. Enthusiasts invented new moves and borrowed heavily from other disciplines, such as juggling, club swinging, dance, and rhythmic gymnastics. Yet the name “poi” stuck. This new version of poi appeals to those who are looking for a dynamic and engaging physical activity that is less intense than martial arts or competitive sports. There is now a large global community of enthusiasts devoted to “global fusion poi,” and the Internet serves as a major medium for exchanging ideas and enthusiasm.
All are welcome. We're friendly, forgiving and not highly competitive, but you should be able to serve, move to receive the ball, and pass the ball to the setter, most of the time. This is a popular event so please RSVP right away, and try to show up on time. Cost - $3 cash
