‘M. Butterfly’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Feb 15 @ 7:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

M. Butterfly
By David Henry Hwang

988 Tony Award Winner – Best Play

1988 Drama Desk Award Winner – Outstanding New Play

1989 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when it all comes tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star: the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but in reality, a man with a secret mission. Rich with deeper themes, M. Butterfly confronts the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“With M. Butterfly David Henry Hwang joins the first string of American playwrights. This is an audaciously imaginative play, big in conception and theme, and a satisfying instance of a talented writer hitting full stride.” —Variety

“It will move you, it will thrill you, it may even surprise you. It is a play not to be missed, and it is a play once caught that will never be forgotten.” —NY Post

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women @ TBA
Feb 16 all-day

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women

Working with your own hands invites you to be still, within the present moment – for complete concentration to the work at hand. Holding your creation brings a connection to the Earth and the many traditional cultures who honored the plants, fibers, and animals of the land they lived with. Each class will cover the basics of traditional crafting to create a small ‘keepsake’ item of function and beauty. Participants will also take home the tools used in class for continued crafting beyond our time together. COST: $300, plus $125 materials fee for the entire series.

Dec 15 – CARVING, Jan 19 – BASKETRY, Feb 16 – LEATHER CRAFT, Mar 16 – WILDCRAFT (plant medicine)

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Feb 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Mindfulness Meditation and learning of Buddhism philosophy ( registration required) on Thursdays and Saturdays mornings

Instructor: Maiko Takenaka
When: Thursdays at 10-11am , Saturdays at 9-10am
Fee: Donation (minimum $5 recommended)
Location: 5601 California Ave SW
Registration: takenakamaiko@gmail.com

It has been my pleasure to practice yoga with some local people since I started to offer the classes. Interestingly, when I shared I have been studied and practiced Buddhism deeper after starting of my social work in Vietnam as I needed, I realized there are many people are interested in learning it more. With their requests, I started to post this class with excitement.

As I was born and raised in Japan, Shintoism and Buddhism is always part of my life, but early 20th, the strong eagerness within me to search the root of Buddhism,I could have spent uncountable hours with Japanese monks, Vietnamese nuns, Thai monks, and Tibetan lamas, even the lamas and Rinpoches from Namgyal monastery,( Dalai Lama’s private monastery) and could have met H.H the 14th Dalai Lama 2 times as I had contributed my service to those lamas when they needed.

Personally I myself have realized a lot what the true message of Buddhism through Tibetan people and Tibetan monks and I have enjoyed always sharing what I have learned from them compare to what nowadays becoming common in temples and monasteries, and Buddhism organizations in Japan, Vietnam, Nepal, India as well as Europe and States.

As class description, instead of talking myself too much, I would like to start with sitting meditation for 10-15 minutes to begin the class with the silent moment, then I would like to hear their thoughts and comments and if anyone interested in my personal experience and studies, I would be glad to share those.

I hope this class will help individual day to day life to relief anxiety and stress and bring more joy and happiness into her or his life as the way who he or she is.

‘M. Butterfly’ matinée @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Feb 17 @ 3:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

M. Butterfly
By David Henry Hwang

988 Tony Award Winner – Best Play

1988 Drama Desk Award Winner – Outstanding New Play

1989 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when it all comes tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star: the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but in reality, a man with a secret mission. Rich with deeper themes, M. Butterfly confronts the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“With M. Butterfly David Henry Hwang joins the first string of American playwrights. This is an audaciously imaginative play, big in conception and theme, and a satisfying instance of a talented writer hitting full stride.” —Variety

“It will move you, it will thrill you, it may even surprise you. It is a play not to be missed, and it is a play once caught that will never be forgotten.” —NY Post

‘Clash of the Wolves’ silent film with Dennis James on the mighty Wurlitzer @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 17 @ 7:30 pm

The Master of the Mighty Wurlitzer returns for another silent film adventure. This time it’s Rin-Tin-Tin in “Clash of the Wolves,” a 1925 classic, co-starring Charles Farrell.

“Clash of the Wolves” was Rinty’s seventh film, and the first in which he was directed to show a lighter side. As is his practice, Dennis has put together an original score for the film, assembling actual period-published silent film compositions, and using those typical of the sort used by theatre organists in the 1920s.

Every time Dennis visits Kenyon Hall, I’m reminded of what a privilege it is to experience his remarkable playing. And after each performance, I remind him that he’s a true genius.

Reserved table seats are $14, and row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. (Table seats are not discounted.) Elementary, middle & high school students are $5.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.

Envisioning Seattle’s Small Lot Zoning Future @ Southwest Branch Library
Feb 19 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Seattle is going to change thousands of residential lots from “Single Family” to “Residential Small Lot” (RSL) as part of the MHA zoning reform. The rules covering RSL designations have been rewritten, and there are many questions about how it will affect our neighborhoods such as South Park, Highland Park, and the Junctions.

  • First, what is RSL and what kinds of new development are we likely to see?
  • Second, how does RSL address displacement, affordability, density, or sustainability?
  • Finally, how can we improve RSL so that it can be the most effective before the ordinance comes before the Council?

If you live in an urban village or are interested in innovative infill housing, join Matt Hutchins, AIA for this informational talk.

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Feb 21 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Mindfulness Meditation and learning of Buddhism philosophy ( registration required) on Thursdays and Saturdays mornings

Instructor: Maiko Takenaka
When: Thursdays at 10-11am , Saturdays at 9-10am
Fee: Donation (minimum $5 recommended)
Location: 5601 California Ave SW
Registration: takenakamaiko@gmail.com

It has been my pleasure to practice yoga with some local people since I started to offer the classes. Interestingly, when I shared I have been studied and practiced Buddhism deeper after starting of my social work in Vietnam as I needed, I realized there are many people are interested in learning it more. With their requests, I started to post this class with excitement.

As I was born and raised in Japan, Shintoism and Buddhism is always part of my life, but early 20th, the strong eagerness within me to search the root of Buddhism,I could have spent uncountable hours with Japanese monks, Vietnamese nuns, Thai monks, and Tibetan lamas, even the lamas and Rinpoches from Namgyal monastery,( Dalai Lama’s private monastery) and could have met H.H the 14th Dalai Lama 2 times as I had contributed my service to those lamas when they needed.

Personally I myself have realized a lot what the true message of Buddhism through Tibetan people and Tibetan monks and I have enjoyed always sharing what I have learned from them compare to what nowadays becoming common in temples and monasteries, and Buddhism organizations in Japan, Vietnam, Nepal, India as well as Europe and States.

As class description, instead of talking myself too much, I would like to start with sitting meditation for 10-15 minutes to begin the class with the silent moment, then I would like to hear their thoughts and comments and if anyone interested in my personal experience and studies, I would be glad to share those.

I hope this class will help individual day to day life to relief anxiety and stress and bring more joy and happiness into her or his life as the way who he or she is.

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Feb 23 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Mindfulness Meditation and learning of Buddhism philosophy ( registration required) on Thursdays and Saturdays mornings

Instructor: Maiko Takenaka
When: Thursdays at 10-11am , Saturdays at 9-10am
Fee: Donation (minimum $5 recommended)
Location: 5601 California Ave SW
Registration: takenakamaiko@gmail.com

It has been my pleasure to practice yoga with some local people since I started to offer the classes. Interestingly, when I shared I have been studied and practiced Buddhism deeper after starting of my social work in Vietnam as I needed, I realized there are many people are interested in learning it more. With their requests, I started to post this class with excitement.

As I was born and raised in Japan, Shintoism and Buddhism is always part of my life, but early 20th, the strong eagerness within me to search the root of Buddhism,I could have spent uncountable hours with Japanese monks, Vietnamese nuns, Thai monks, and Tibetan lamas, even the lamas and Rinpoches from Namgyal monastery,( Dalai Lama’s private monastery) and could have met H.H the 14th Dalai Lama 2 times as I had contributed my service to those lamas when they needed.

Personally I myself have realized a lot what the true message of Buddhism through Tibetan people and Tibetan monks and I have enjoyed always sharing what I have learned from them compare to what nowadays becoming common in temples and monasteries, and Buddhism organizations in Japan, Vietnam, Nepal, India as well as Europe and States.

As class description, instead of talking myself too much, I would like to start with sitting meditation for 10-15 minutes to begin the class with the silent moment, then I would like to hear their thoughts and comments and if anyone interested in my personal experience and studies, I would be glad to share those.

I hope this class will help individual day to day life to relief anxiety and stress and bring more joy and happiness into her or his life as the way who he or she is.

It has been my pleasure to practice yoga with some local people since I started to offer the classes. Interestingly, when I shared I have been studied and practiced Buddhism deeper after starting of my social work in Vietnam as I needed, I realized there are many people are interested in learning it more. With their requests, I started to post this class with excitement.

As I was born and raised in Japan, Shintoism and Buddhism is always part of my life, but early 20th, the strong eagerness within me to search the root of Buddhism,I could have spent uncountable hours with Japanese monks, Vietnamese nuns, Thai monks, and Tibetan lamas, even the lamas and Rinpoches from Namgyal monastery,( Dalai Lama’s private monastery) and could have met H.H the 14th Dalai Lama 2 times as I had contributed my service to those lamas when they needed.

Personally I myself have realized a lot what the true message of Buddhism through Tibetan people and Tibetan monks and I have enjoyed always sharing what I have learned from them compare to what nowadays becoming common in temples and monasteries, and Buddhism organizations in Japan, Vietnam, Nepal, India as well as Europe and States.

As class description, instead of talking myself too much, I would like to start with sitting meditation for 10-15 minutes to begin the class with the silent moment, then I would like to hear their thoughts and comments and if anyone interested in my personal experience and studies, I would be glad to share those.

I hope this class will help individual day to day life to relief anxiety and stress and bring more joy and happiness into her or his life as the way who he or she is.

Community Input: Lowman Beach Park Seawall Project @ The Kenney
Feb 28 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

At The Kenney (WSB sponsor):

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to provide input on the preliminary design for the Lowman Beach Park seawall project. Lowman Beach Park is located just north of Lincoln Park at 7017 Beach Dr. SW.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall is failing and needs to be removed. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over/sliding towards the water. It is Seattle Parks and Recreation’s goal to remove the remaining seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s.

In May 2017, together with Environmental Science Associates (ESA) design consultant, we presented design options. We hired ESA as a design consultant, as a follow-up to the feasibility study to continue the design process that began with the feasibility study. The design will take into consideration both the habitat benefits of the seawall removal and the coastal engineering ramifications of that seawall removal. Given the design constraints of the project, the existing tennis court will be removed. A remnant of Pelly Creek that currently flows under the seawall will be daylighted as part of the project.

Fundraiser for Camp Second Chance tiny houses @ Ark Lodge Cinemas
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Sound Foundations NW* is hosting a showing of ‘Trickle Down Town’ at Ark Lodge Cinemas to raise money for building tiny homes at Camp Second Chance. Currently Camp Second Chance is a sanctioned homeless encampment with both tiny homes and temporary shelters (tents). Sound Foundations NW’s goal for 2019 is to replace the remaining 18 tents with tiny homes. These homes serve as transitional housing until residents find permanent housing solutions.

‘Trickle Down Town’ is a documentary that focuses on the human aspect of our local housing crisis. The film features visits to homeless encampments along with personal experiences from our homeless neighbors and those working to help move people from homelessness into permanent housing. You can view a trailer for the film here. Space is limited, so please RSVP early.

Following the film, there will be a Q&A session with the filmmaker, and others involved in the issue. We will discuss Camp Second Chance and specifically how Sound Foundations NW can finish this tiny home village and create the positive impact that it can make to the community

Sound Foundations NW has no paid staff. That means that 100% of every dollar you donate goes towards purchasing the building materials for the remaining 18 tiny homes.

Homelessness in Seattle has reached critical levels. There is indeed something you as an individual can do. By donating money for building materials or donating your time to helping Sound Foundations NW, you help get one more person off the ground and into a space that is warm, safe and dry. We wholeheartedly invite you to join us in making a difference.

Popcorn and a drink will be included in the price of the admission!

*Sound Foundations NW is a community based outreach project of Alki United Church of Christ.

Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

SSC Cooperative Preschools presents: The Opposite of Worry–Playful Parenting in Anxious Times.

Whether it’s the fear provoked by the monster in the closet or the dread that arises from new social situations, school, or sports, anxiety can be especially challenging and traumatizing for children. And since anxiety has a mind of its own, logic and reassurance often fail, leaving parents increasingly frustrated about how to help.

Dr. Lawrence J. Cohen, Ph.D., is the author of Playful Parenting and The Opposite of Worry. He will discuss simple, effective strategies that build connection and dampen anxiety through fun, play, and empathy.
