Haunted Hike @ Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

We will visit Link light rail station alternatives at West Seattle Junction, Avalon, and Delridge.* Sound Transit is currently evaluating and gathering public input on potential station sites.

The Link light rail site selections will influence West Seattle development over the coming decades, including whether or not people have safe and accessible walkways. We will discuss tradeoffs between the various site alternatives and how to ensure good walking access to the light rail system.

Don’t miss out on the post-Walk & Talk refreshments at Ounces Taproom & Beer Garden! Join us for further discussion, a thirst-quenching selection of Washington beers and delicious food from the Bella M’Briana food truck.

Saturnalia @ West Seattle "Alki" Masonic Center
Jan 19 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

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 21 @ 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.
