      6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

      From Sound Yoga (WSB sponsor):

      Restorative Yoga with Milo Minnis

      Restorative Yoga focuses on poses that encourage your body to relax. This deep relaxation supports healing by stimulating your body – producing natural chemicals that can help lessen the negative effects of stress, support your immune system, and sharpen your mind. The word yoga means “unite” and Restorative Yoga asanas (poses) unite your physical, mental and spiritual elements. Your body will relax completely, and you will feel restored, renewed and energized. No experience needed. If you like savasana you will love Restorative Yoga.

      Date: Friday, March 21, 2014
      Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
      Fee: $25.00

    5. Free teen running group
      11:00 am – 12:30 pm

      Starting January 4th , West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) will be offering a free teen running group every Saturday at 11 am for those in high school and college. This will be a great place to meet other youth who enjoy running, train for races like 5ks and half marathons, and improve overall fitness.

      Lori McConnell, co-owner of West Seattle Runner, wanted to start this group because “As a long distance runner, the owner of a running store, and a therapist for youth and athletes, I saw the need. I have heard from teens that they would like to run more, but in the dark winter, they are limited because they don’t want to run alone. I also want to introduce the joy of running to youth. It is a healthy activity for them to spend time doing, it gives a sense of belonging, and it increases confidence. Also running is a way to build good mental health and helps with learning. I wanted an opportunity to connect like-minded teens in a social way.”

      A Facebook group called “West Seattle Teen Running Group” will be the central place for future information about this upcoming running group. If you have questions, contact Lori McConnell at lori@westseattlerunner.com or call West Seattle Runner at (206)-938-0545.

      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      Curator of Mammals, Emeritus, Burke Museum
      Professor of Biology, Emeritus, University of Washington

      Why do whales and dolphins have finger bones in their flippers? Did you know that today’s cetaceans are descended from ancestors who once lived on shore, and then returned to the sea?

      Join us on March 27 to hear more about this amazing chapter in evolution.

      This is the third in a series of Orca Talks 2014 hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle. The program also features updates from Laura James (tox-ick.org) and Seal Sitters.

      Buy tickets ahead of time and we’ll save you a seat! And hurry – this will sell out!

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

      As part of it’s year-long Torah Restoration project, Kol HaNeshamah will be hosting Marc Zvi Brettler, the Dora Golding Professor of Biblical Studies at Brandeis University, for a scholar in residence weekend. Professor Brettler’s interests center on the nature of biblical historical texts as “literary” texts as well as on gender and the Bible. He published How to Read the Bible in 2005, and served as co-editor for The Jewish Annotated New Testament in 2011; he also co-edited The Jewish Study Bible, which was awarded a National Jewish Book Award. Professor Brettler is committed to making academic biblical scholarship accessible to a broader public; he is a co-founder of thetorah.com which aims to connect the study of Torah with critical scholarship in a constructive, religiously meaningful way, and he has discussed his work in a variety of op-eds as well as on NPR?s “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross.

      Professor Brettler will offer a short d?var and a longer presentation at Friday night services and potluck on March 28, and will lead Torah study on Saturday morning, March 29. Both of these are open to the entire community at no charge. There will also be a luncheon following services on March 29 at which Professor Brettler will make another presentation; there will be a small charge of $18 per person to cover the cost of the food, and space is limited because the event is being held in a member’s house.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Center Studio (WSB sponsor) invites you to experience Video/Yoga:

      VIDEO//YOGA is a yoga practice taught side by side with video art; creating an immersive visual and yogic experience that activates and engages all the senses. Guided by video art curator and yoga teacher, Julia Greenway, students engage in a stimulating and exciting yogic environment. VIDEO//YOGA programming has been previously implemented at The Vera Project, Fred Wildlife Refuge, and is part of the Henry Art Gallery’s yearly programming.

      The space is activated through a large scale projection playing a looped reel of video art. The video art pieces are specifically curated to move with the sequence of yoga poses and overall flow of the class. Greenway is working alongside local, national and international video artists to curate 3 individualized reels entitled Light//Landscape, Desolate//Distopiaand Evolved//Pixelated. As a curator and teacher Greenway is creating an experience that successfully integrates video art and yoga practice.

      Julia Greenway invites you to enjoy the enriching experience of yoga in an environment of freedom, creativity, and compassion. As an artist, curator, and traveler, yoga has always been her foundation. The practice allows her to build an ever-deepening connection with her physical and mental self, which in turn fuels her creativity and allows her to find ease. Julia is continuously seeking new and exciting ways to bring yoga to her students.

    7. Free teen running group
      11:00 am – 12:30 pm

      Starting January 4th , West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) will be offering a free teen running group every Saturday at 11 am for those in high school and college. This will be a great place to meet other youth who enjoy running, train for races like 5ks and half marathons, and improve overall fitness.

      Lori McConnell, co-owner of West Seattle Runner, wanted to start this group because “As a long distance runner, the owner of a running store, and a therapist for youth and athletes, I saw the need. I have heard from teens that they would like to run more, but in the dark winter, they are limited because they don’t want to run alone. I also want to introduce the joy of running to youth. It is a healthy activity for them to spend time doing, it gives a sense of belonging, and it increases confidence. Also running is a way to build good mental health and helps with learning. I wanted an opportunity to connect like-minded teens in a social way.”

      A Facebook group called “West Seattle Teen Running Group” will be the central place for future information about this upcoming running group. If you have questions, contact Lori McConnell at lori@westseattlerunner.com or call West Seattle Runner at (206)-938-0545.

      I am proud to announce that I am heading up West Seattle’s first St. Baldrick’s head shaving event! This is a fundraiser for childhood cancer research: The St. Baldrick’s Foundation – a volunteer-driven charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.

      Mind Unwind Art Gallery is graciously partnering with us and hosting the event. The event is Saturday, March 29th from 6-8, or until the last head is shaved.

      Get involved and you’ll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. For donation information or to sign up to get your head shaved, please visit St. Baldrick’s Website.

      While the head shaving is a big part of it, there will also be many other ways to support local shavees who will be asking for sponsors to help them reach their fundraising goals. We will also accept donations at the door, as well as add on a few last minute shavees.

      We are thrilled to be getting this incredible event started here in West Seattle and hope that it will grow exponentially in years to come.

      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      Jim Page singer-songwriter: After seeing him perform at the High Sierra Music Festival in the summer of ‘97, Rob Bleetstein of Gavin wrote: “Jim Page is a lyrical genius with a guitar. This man personifies the word ‘free-flow.’ Page takes to the mic and the song invents itself on the spot; his talent is a natural wonder.” http://www.nodepression.com/profile/JimPage

      Memo from the hardest working part on your bike. OVERHAUL ME! Bicycle wheel hubs are the hardest working part of your bicycle. They support your loads, turn the fastest and are closer to the elements such as street grime, dirt and water. Leaving them unattended results in bearing surface wear that can make your hubs unusable. Our hub overhaul workshop will focus on front and rear standard ball bearing hubs. DIY Bikes will provide the tools, cleaning products, replacement bearings, grease and procedure to get your hubs running smoothly again.

      Where:
      West Seattle Tool Library, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center 4408 Delridge Way SW.
      When: 5-8 pm.

      Megan Lingerfelt: “Never Useless”

      West Seattle Art Walk: Thursday April 4th, 6-9 pm
      Exhibit Runs: April 7th – May 4th, 2014

      This work speaks of unsung heroes and tragic portraits of the postmodern world. Isolating one structure at a time, removing it from its functional context, I highlight the beauty of a manufactured form whose purpose was never to be beautiful. Investigation of an object produces a greater understanding of how its pieces make a whole, a process that takes time and creates sentimentality.

      6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

      From Sound Yoga (WSB sponsor):

      Introduction to Vedic Chant with Stephanie Sisson

      Experience and learn the art of Vedic Chant. Vedic texts, thousands of years old, are presented in the Sanskrit language and contain wisdom still relevant to the challenges we face in the modern world. But it is the act of chanting itself that brings life to these texts as well as to the person listening and reciting.

      We will use simple chants and sounds to have an experience of Vedic Chant and learn the fundamentals. This class will help you feel comfortable attending the monthly Vedic Chant class at SoundYoga.

      This workshop is presented as a 3-part series.

      Date: April 4th

      misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.

    4. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

    7. Camp Long 1st & 3rd Saturday Morning Family Nature Walks
      10:30 am – 12:00 pm

      From Stewart Wechsler of Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures in Nature:

      Join Stewart on an adventure with your family around Camp Long’s 68 acres of habitat. Engage with and learn about everything (partly depending on the season) from the salamanders to the slugs, the Barred Owls to the Cooper’s Hawks in the woods, the dragonflies by the pond and butterflies to the hoverflies and snakes in the sunny spots, and from the Stinging Nettles to Hedge Nettles. Help the native community by learning an alien weed and pulling one. If you can see it, hear it or smell it Stewart can probably tell you what it is and some of its fascinating story! While the program will be quite kid friendly, regardless of your knowledge level, you will be able to learn things you didn’t know and have fun doing so.

      E-mail or call to reserve a space, ecostewart@gmail.com / 206 932-7225 (land line / message), with the number of kids and adults. Drop-ins can check if there is room. There may be cancellations for the toughest weather conditions, so check this website or the outgoing message on my land line (@ 206 932-7225) for cancellations if more than either a light rain or moderate wind, or very cold are in the forecast.

The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys titles were awarded to the library by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA). The program aims to familiarize public audiences in the United States with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

      The books and films comprising the Bookshelf were selected with the advice of librarians and cultural programming experts, as well as distinguished scholars in the fields of anthropology, world history, religious studies, interfaith dialogue, the history of art and architecture, world literature, Middle East studies, Southeast Asian studies, African studies, and Islamic studies.

      Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association. Major support for the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

      We’re proud that we were chosen to receive these materials and hope that you will find them of interest! We invite you to browse the titles in this online guide–feel free to check out any items that interest you to enjoy at home. The SSCC Library, Office of Diversity and Retention, Art Gallery, Basic & Transitional Studies, and International Programs will be co-hosting events related to our new collection during the 2013-2014 academic year. Please ask a librarian if you have questions about this collection or our Muslim Journeys events.

    4. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

    8. Open House: Seattle 2035: Discussing Our Growing City @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      April 9th, 2014
      6:00 – 8:00 pm
      at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center

      One of five neighborhood open houses, DPD is hoping to reach out to different neighborhoods and gather comments on the Planning Alternatives that are currently under discussion. Comments can be submitted through April 21, 2014.

      DPD is scoping an environmental impact statement (EIS) that will evaluate the City’s Comprehensive Plan update. The EIS will examine the possible impacts under three different growth scenarios.

      Consistent with regional growth projections, all three scenarios assume the city will grow by 70,000 households and 115,000 jobs over the next 20 years. All the scenarios follow the Comprehensive Plan’s urban growth strategy that aims to concentrate most of the growth in the city’s designated urban centers and urban villages. The alternatives differ in how the projected growth would be distributed:

      Alternative 1 would evaluate most of the growth in the six urban centers, in keeping with the regional plan of concentrating development in centers.
      Alternative 2 would still project a lot of growth in the centers, but would shift some growth to the urban villages in order to strengthen those neighborhood business districts.
      Alternative 3 would evaluate more growth in the urban villages that contain existing or planned light rail stations.

      The Comprehensive Plan the City ultimately adopts could combine aspects of each of these alternatives.

      DPD is taking comments on these alternatives and the topics to be covered in the EIS until April 21. See more about the alternatives and the EIS topics at 2035.seattle.gov.

      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      The South Seattle Community College Library is honored to be one of 840 libraries and state humanities councils across the country selected to receive this special collection of books and films exploring various aspects of Islamic faith and culture. The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys titles were awarded to the library by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA). The program aims to familiarize public audiences in the United States with the people, places, history, faith and cultures of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

      The books and films comprising the Bookshelf were selected with the advice of librarians and cultural programming experts, as well as distinguished scholars in the fields of anthropology, world history, religious studies, interfaith dialogue, the history of art and architecture, world literature, Middle East studies, Southeast Asian studies, African studies, and Islamic studies.

      Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association. Major support for the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

      We’re proud that we were chosen to receive these materials and hope that you will find them of interest! We invite you to browse the titles in this online guide–feel free to check out any items that interest you to enjoy at home. The SSCC Library, Office of Diversity and Retention, Art Gallery, Basic & Transitional Studies, and International Programs will be co-hosting events related to our new collection during the 2013-2014 academic year. Please ask a librarian if you have questions about this collection or our Muslim Journeys events.

    3. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”
