The KonMari Method of Decluttering and Organizing your Home @ The Kenny
Jan 29 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Spring is right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. It’s also the perfect time to start tidying your house. Tidying first means you won’t get stuck cleaning things that do not spark joy. Tidying also means it will be easier to clean when your house is already in order. Find out how KonMari Tidying can be part of your spring-cleaning marathon.

This interactive workshop will provide you with  the tools and knowledge to successfully transform your home using the KonMari Method. The event includes an overview of the KonMari Method™ including a live demonstration of the KonMari folding technique and the distribution of take-home materials for reference that will prepare you to  get your home tidy now!  

This method of tidying can change your life!

The Pacific Northwest’s first certified KonMari Tidying Consultant, Sue Bollinger, of Tidy Up With Sue, will share home organization tips that focus on what to keep (Does it “spark joy?”) rather than what to discard. Learn about the revolutionary Japanese decluttering method made popular by Marie Kondo’s bestsellers, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Spark Joy, and the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A period.  All are welcome!

Space is limited, so please RSVP today at (206) 937-2800.

Bystander Intervention Training @ Admiral UCC Church
Mar 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Everyone wants to live in a hate-free neighborhood. What can you do to make it happen? This two-hour workshop is a great start!

Bystander Intervention Workshop: Help Make Your Neighborhood Hate-Free at Admiral United Church of Christ, 4320 SW Hill St, on Sunday, March 15 from 2-4.

Anti-Hate Alaska Junction, a local grassroots organisation, presents Bystander Intervention Workshop, which use interactive techniques to help attendees learn how to intervene in an aggressive or harassing interaction – protecting the target while not escalating the perpetrator.

Led by Reverend Andrew Conley-Holcom, this experience will increase your confidence about intervening when needed. You’ll learn to bypass your “flight or fight” reaction and bring calm and de-escalation skills if you witness a threatening interaction.

Training is free. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Email antihate3@gmail.com with your name and phone number. Walk-ins welcome. There will be 2 other Bystander Intervention Workshops in West Seattle in 2020: Sunday, May 17 and Sunday, September 13.
