Native Plant ID and Invasive Plant Removal Along Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail @ Thistle Street Green Space
Dec 8 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

A beautiful area called the Thistle Street Green Space along the
Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail needs your help in a battle against invasive
species. Next to a local pea patch garden, Chief Sealth High School,
and Longfellow Creek, this piece of green space requires regular
maintenance to keep it clear of invaders like Himalayan
Blackberry, Buttercup, Herb Robert, and others. Come volunteer with
DIRT Corps and learn how to identify both native plants and invasive plants
as well as how to remove all kinds of invasive species so native
plants can thrive. Afterwards you can walk the trails and explore this
hidden gem in Delridge.

Saturnalia @ West Seattle "Alki" Masonic Center

Join Seattle’s Phantasmagorical Chef [Chef Killian] for a January feast that will make Saturn blush!

Traditionally held in December, we’ve moved the Saturnalia Feast to January so you can enjoy the newer winter holidays with family and recover from your New Year revelry with friends, before diving into the extravaganza of our January Saturnalia.

In honor of the Agricultural Deity, everything you eat this night will be best-of-kind!
Sourced from ethical butchers, local gardens, and small local farms and wineries, every kind of diet and restriction is accommodated. From celiac to halal, Chef Killian is pleased to provide you a meal to remember. “The poet Catullus called Saturnalia ‘the best of days’ I promise to make this dinner one of your best!” Note: the ancient Romans had limited flatware: you will have a spoon and a knife; ample use of your fingers is encouraged.

Restorative Justice and Healing @ Youngstown Theater
Jan 21 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join us for Restorative Justice and Healing, our MLK Day of Service event in partnership with United Way of King County. Childcare and community dinner are provided.

In honoring Dr. King on this day of service, DNDA will engage Delridge and surrounding communities in constructive conversation about how race and justice influence each other in modern-day America. In examining what it means to have justice, this event will bring together neighbors of all ethnicities and races to bridge our differences and communicate through a restorative justice approach.

Utilizing the peacemaking circle, participants will engage in a non-hierarchical discussion and learn through the collective wisdom embedded in the stories and lived experiences of all participants.

This event will include a screening of the film Healing Justice, which explores the causes and consequences of the U.S. justice system and its effect on marginalized communities.

Local service-based organizations will be invited to participate and advocate for the resources they provide—including organizations like Hate Free Delridge and Young Women Empowered. Following the event, all participants and volunteers will be invited to continue discussing over a community dinner.

Please register here by Jan 18, 2019.

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Feb 7 @ 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.

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Feb 14 @ 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.

The Opposite of Worry–Playful Parenting in Anxious Times @ Jerry M. Brockey Center at South Seattle College
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.

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.

Intersections Festival @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Mar 21 @ 2:00 pm

Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance will be happening for the second year, this March 21-24, 2019 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in the Delridge neighborhood. Intersections showcases performers in improv, sketch, stand-up, burlesque, storytelling, spoken word, music, theatre, and dance; however, it doesn’t end there.Intersections remains committed to its focus on equity, inclusion, and representation. “Seattle is a diverse city,” says Jekeva Phillips, one member of the all-womxn team, “Why are we only seeing the same faces and hearing the same voices?” Phillips (who is featured in City Arts Magazine’s 2018 Future List) was approached about the project by Natasha Ransom, and Kinzie Shaw of FEELINGS, an Improv duo which aims to amplify intersectional feminism in the face of a white-cis-hetero patriarchy.

The four-day festival will feature a myriad of comedy-related acts from Seattle’s best and brightest POC, Queer, Trans, non-binary, and neurodiverse performers. Each show is a different experience loaded with a variety of acts. No show in the festival will be the same, so the Intersections team strongly encourages patrons to be a part of it all. “We are so excited to be in the audience for this festival,” Say co-founders Natasha Ransom and Kinzie Shaw “The talent is just unbelievably good and we want to soak as much of it in as possible.”

Don’t miss our Giving Party, coming up Saturday March 9th from 2-4pm at Capitol Cider. It’s completely free to attend! For more information about the festival, like Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance on Facebook or visit the website: www.intersectionsfestival.com

NORTHWEST BOYCHOIR PRESENTS–“CHORAL TRADITION” @ Holy Rosary Church
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm

The highly acclaimed Northwest Boychoir announces their Choral Tradition series for March 2019. Now in its fifth season, Choral Tradition celebrates the breadth and diversity of the classical choral repertoire.

This year’s program will feature John Rutter’s Gloria, and great choral works by Brahms, Debussy, Lauridsen, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Orff and Rheinberger for both treble and SATB male chorus.

About the Northwest Boychoir

The Northwest Boychoir’s musical sophistication, rich tonal quality, and dedication to exacting perfection have established its reputation as one of the nation’s pre­mier children’s choirs. Along with Vocalpoint! Seattle, the Northwest Boychoir has trained thousands of young singers for more than 40 years, and more significantly, shaped the lives of our region’s youth by teaching important lessons in personal commitment and the value of teamwork. Led by Joseph Crnko, now in his 35th year as Music Director, the Choir’s staff of professional musicians and educators is engaged in the teaching of a rigorous curriculum that trains young singers, 6-18 years old, to be fully-skilled musicians who sing at the highest professional level, read music fluently, and perform in professional settings with confidence.

For more than 30 years, the Choirs have maintained a close working relationship with the Seattle Symphony and participate annually in the performance of great choral works. Last February, the Northwest Boychoir joined with the SSO to perform Vivadi’s Gloria, and then in March returned to Benaroya Hall for performances of Orff’s Carmina burana. The following month, the Boychoir again collaborated with the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Symphony Chorale for performances of Stravinsky’s Perséphone. The Northwest Boychoir will perform the Debussy Nocturnes in Maestro Morlot’s Farewell Concert with the Seattle Symphony in June.

Last June, the Northwest Boychoir presented their annual classical series, Choral Tradition, featuring Michael Haydn’s Missa Sancti Aloyssi and Francis Poulenc’s Gloria. At the end of the year, the Northwest Boychoir was honored to perform with Music of Remembrance when they presented their 20th Anniversary concert at Benaroya Hall. The Northwest Boychoir closed its season with eight performances of its 40th season of A Festival of Lessons & Carols, including a presentation with Northwest Sinfonia at Benaroya Hall.

Along with a very active performance schedule, the Northwest Boychoir is regularly contracted for recording engagements. Last year the Northwest Boychoir recorded the soundtrack for the motion picture Prospect, and can also be heard in Cirque du Soleil’s Volta. The Northwest Boychoir serves as the official “Singing Ambassadors” of Washington.

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)

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.

Apology Ceremony @ Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
Mar 30 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

TIME TO APOLOGIZE TO THE DUWAMISH TRIBE?

It’s happening Saturday, March 30 at Duwamish Longhouse, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
4705 W Marginal Way SW

“In the spirit of cultural humility, we apologize – and listen to the voices of the land,” reads a flyer put out by the Grandmothers Global Healing Movement, founded by Norma Jean Young, focused on bringing the Wisdomkeeping Grandmother’s presence and voice back to the world.

Young first gathered global Grandmothers in 2003 at “Getting Down to Earth with the Grandmothers” on Whidbey Island, at Whidbey Institute. It featured five key grandmothers: from New Zealand, Tibet, Hawaii, Lummi, and Grandmother Vi Hilbert of Upper Skagit Nation.

The Apology will be focused on the Duwamish people, and all Native American tribes, at a ceremony March 30 at the Duwamish Longhouse, 4705 W. Marginal Way SW, Seattle at 1 p.m. A meal will be served at 3 p.m., with music throughout.

The apology is co-sponsored by the Duwamish Longhouse and the Grandmothers Global Healing Movement. Featured speakers include H.E. Dagmola Kusho Sakya of the Tibetan Buddhist lineage; Rev. Kelly Brown, lead pastor of Plymouth Church Seattle; Pastor Pat Wright of Total Experience Gospel Choir fame; and others. Everyone is encouraged to bring food and gifting to the Indigenous, whether dollars, services or goods.

“This critical time of breakdown in our world culture demands the presence that holds life whole. Wisdom-keeping grandmothers have always been stabilizers, looked to for functional guidance to hold life whole – especially in troubled times,” says Young. “This is a healing event to bring together the essential components of healing—cultural humility, apology, listening, and taking action in partnership.”

Norma Jean Young, a reiki master, served as a healer and helper to Great Grandmother Vi Hilbert in the three years before she died. Hilbert, the last fully fluent language speaker of Lushootseed culture, was a most valued Grandmother taproot who served many Coast Salish tribes. She was named a Washington State Living Treasure in 1989, and received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1994, presented by President Bill Clinton.

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society
