    8. Pelvic Health and Awareness Classes begin @ West Seattle Highline Physical Therapy
      6:30 pm – 7:45 pm

      From West Seattle Highline Physical Therapy:

      This class is an introduction to a program that combines the latest medical research about pelvic floor function with the Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education®. The Feldenkrais Method® has been around for over sixty years and has helped millions of people recover function after illness, injury or trauma, by utilizing your natural ability to learn and become aware of your habits.

      The exercises you will learn are supported by research and emphasize the use of the pelvic floor muscles with other muscles in the hips, legs and torso as part of a coordinated system. When you have more awareness of the pelvic floor, your ability to sense what you are doing will also improve. You will be more able to tell if you are contracting or relaxing the pelvic floor. As you are able to discriminate this, you can then progress your ability to use the pelvic floor to suit your need or activity.

      GOALS:
      *Improve awareness of your pelvic floor
      *Learn to use your breathing to relax and balance your nervous system
      *Learn tools to improve your awareness of your postural habits

      This class is appropriate if you want to improve bladder control, reduce back or pelvic
      pain, or get help in recovering from childbirth or abdominal surgery.

      • Please wear warm, comfortable layered clothing.
      • Classes will be done in lying/sitting on exercise mats/chairs which will be provided.
      • Thursdays March 20, 27 and April 3, 6:30-7:45 PM
      • Cost: $10.00 (cash or check)
      • All proceeds from this class will go to Open Arms Perinatal Services. Please make checks payable to Open Arms Perinatal.
      Please RSVP as soon as possible, as space is limited.

      Instructor: Mary Haller
      After working as a physical therapist for two years and then studying the Feldenkrais
      Method®, Mary took time off to raise her 2 children. She is re-entering the field and is
      grateful to April Bolding, DPT and West Seattle Highline Physical Therapy for their willingness to let her shadow April as part of this process.

      April Bolding, DPT, CCE, CD will be on hand to facilitate the class.

No experience needed. If you like savasana you will love Restorative Yoga.

      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.

      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.

      5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

      From stylist Emily Austin at Shanti Salon and Spa:

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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
      Time: 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

    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.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

    6. 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 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.

      “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.”

      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.

    5. 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.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

      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.

      “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.”

      Joleen Winther Hughes is the founder, principal and fearless leader of Hughes Media Law Group. With experience that spans the entertainment and digital media world, Joleen started HMLG specifically to support entrepreneurs, burgeoning media properties and service providers who push the boundaries of media and technology.

In addition to fronting HMLG, Joleen is a popular lecturer and panelists for several national and international media and technology organizations including Digital Hollywood, the American Bar Association and the Application Developer’s Alliance. Before dreaming up what is now HMLG, Joleen was Senior Counsel at RealNetworks, Inc., where she worked with major sports leagues, media companies, television networks, movie studios and record labels to create the first on-line consumer content subscription service and was responsible for developing Real’s casual gaming licensing strategy. Prior to her legal career, Joleen owned a successful artist management and production company during the height of the 90′s Seattle music explosion working with music legends like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains (just to name-drop a few!).

In 2013, he became the band’s manager and also began working as the booking agent for the Seattle band Funky 2 Death. 2014 is starting out great for Mackenzie. In just three months, he has helped steer his band clients to collaborations with The Seattle Seahawks and Sounders organizations, performances with the likes of BB King, and nationally-broadcasted shows on NPR. Mackenzie is currently spending much of his time planning his bands’ upcoming national touring schedules and music licensing projects.

      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.

      CSIHS PTSA Meeting
      Tuesday, April 22nd 2014
      7-8:30 pm
      High Point Neighborhood House

      For the first time, the PTSA at Chief Sealth Int’l High School is going mobile with its general meeting. It will be held at the High Point Neighborhood House .

      Come hear Principal Aida Fraser-Hammer discuss the process of bringing the school budget to completion. As an initial proposal from the school district – to its final version approved by the teaching staff – the Chief Sealth annual budget is a work-in-progress throughout the year. She will also detail the budget for the upcoming school year.

      We’re also proud to have Marty McLaren, Seattle School Board Director, presenting the latest news from the district. She will discuss the State Court’s decision to “fully” fund education in the State. If there is an eventual windfall from the State, does have the District have a plan for its use? Priorities?

      Thanks for your support!

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here.

      “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.”

      12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

      At South Seattle College (WSB sponsor):

      Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World” film screening and discussion facilitated by Randy Nelson and Esther Sunde takes place Thursday, April 24, 12-2 pm in RAH 125 (map) as part of the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys project.

      The film explores the richness of Islamic art in objects big and small, from great ornamented palaces and the play of light in monumental mosques to the exquisite beauty of ceramics, carved boxes, paintings and metal work. It revels in the use of color and finds commonalities in a shared artistic heritage with the West and East. The film also examines the unique ways in which Islamic art turns calligraphy and the written word into masterpieces and develops water into an expressive, useful art form.
