Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Apr 4 @ 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.

By Annie Baker

At a weekend bed & breakfast, the shadow of infidelity hangs over a young couple struggling to rebuild their relationship – when the elderly owner shares her own memories, ghosts real and imagined arrive to haunt the living.

This passionate production was the winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize.

Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhism philosophy class @ (see listing)
Apr 6 @ 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.

Puget Park trails need you!

Come celebrate Volunteer Day by helping to improve trails in Puget Park this Sunday April 7th from 9-noon. Community support is needed for this month’s work party, we will construct a log and gravel ramp to smooth a steep muddy transition on the trail that leads to the bench near the ramp constructed last season.

Several neighbors have come together to lead this Puget Ridge family friendly community event. Please stop by and give whatever time you have, every little bits helps, even just swing by to say “thank you”. Our presence and participation at this event demonstrates to Seattle Parks that we care and appreciate improvements they are making to the parks in our neighborhood.

During the last event, 13 people volunteered and we made an incredible amount of progress, planting about 300 natives plants along the trail and raking the gravel trail clean. We depend on our community volunteers to make this happen.

The next work party will be from 9-noon Sunday April 7th. We will meet at the entrance to Puget Park at 19th and SW Dawson, approximately 1900 Southwest Dawson. Bring sturdy shoes, gloves, and water. Tools and wheelbarrows will be provided.

‘John’ matinée @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Apr 7 @ 3:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

John
By Annie Baker

Time Magazine – 10 Best Shows of 2015
Nominated for 6 Drama Desk Awards
Nominated for 5 Lucille Lortel Awards

At a weekend bed & breakfast, the shadow of infidelity hangs over a young couple struggling to rebuild their relationship – when the elderly owner shares her own memories, ghosts real and imagined arrive to haunt the living. Blending keen realism with the eerily supernatural, this quiet tale from a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright is unafraid to seek beauty in one of the most startling places: the solitude of human experience.

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

“Annie Baker’s John is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” – The New Yorker

“Baker does not merely tell a scary story. She shows them, piling up like ghosts of amputated limbs from the war wounded, and makes them riveting, unpredictable, altogether human theater.” – Newsday

Twelfth Night Productions presents ‘Three Tall Women’ @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 7 @ 3:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions is proud to present Edward Albee’s THREE TALL WOMEN, directed by Richard Buckley.

This excruciatingly honest play is an engaging examination of the life of one woman. She cascades from regal and charming to vicious and wretched as she wonders about and remembers her life: her husband and their cold, passionless marriage; her son and their estrangement.

This passionate production was the winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize.

Playing April 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 pm and April 7 and 14 at 3:00 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets or at the box office at Youngstown an hour before show time. Prices are $22 for adults and $18 for students & seniors.

Special HPAC meeting: Riverview Playfield fencing/barrier
Apr 10 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

from the Highland Park Action Committee:

Special Meeting With Parks Dept. on Options for Riverview Park: New Barrier/Fence
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
Meet at Riverview Park – 12th Ave. SW & SW Webster at 5:30 pm.
Come discuss possible options

During the May 2017 Find-It-Fix-It walk, neighbors and community members raised concerns about the existing logs that served as barriers to the park. Neighbors expressed that the logs were unsightly and not good for the environment.

Parks staff responded that we would look at alternatives. The logs serve an important purpose of keeping folks from driving on to the field and damaging the park.

This Wednesday, we’d love to discuss possible alternative to the existing logs and solicit feedback from the community.

Please come to the Highland Park Action Committee (HPAC) special meeting on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 12th Ave. SW and SW Webster at 5:30 pm. This is the south lot. Seattle Parks and Recreation staff will be there to talk through this upgrade to the park.

Words, Writers, West Seattle With Kurt Armbruster @ Southwest Branch Seattle Public Library

In 1870, Seattle had high hopes that the transcontinental Northern Pacific Railroad would make the city its western terminus. Instead, the railroad chose Tacoma. Seattle panicked and then rolled up its sleeves and built its own railroad. The Pacific Coast Railroad and its predecessors were key to assuring Seattle’s rise to become the Pacific Northwest’s greatest city.

Kurt Armbruster is a Seattle native, historian, author and musician/songwriter. He has written numerous articles for historical journals and books including Orphan Road, The Railroad Comes to Seattle, 1853-1911, Before Seattle Rocked, A City and Its Music, and Playing for Change, Burton and Florence James and the Struggle for American Theater.

This program is part of the Words, Writers & West Seattle author series which features writers connected to the Duwamish Peninsula. Programs are held monthly on the second Thursday evenings.

Presented in partnership with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

This event is at the Southwest branch library.

Twelfth Night Productions presents ‘Three Tall Women’ @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 12 @ 7:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions is proud to present Edward Albee’s THREE TALL WOMEN, directed by Richard Buckley.

This excruciatingly honest play is an engaging examination of the life of one woman. She cascades from regal and charming to vicious and wretched as she wonders about and remembers her life: her husband and their cold, passionless marriage; her son and their estrangement.

This passionate production was the winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize.

Playing April 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 pm and April 7 and 14 at 3:00 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

We Are Still Here: 10th Anniversary Film Screening @ Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
Apr 13 @ 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm

We hope you will join us for film, food, and conversation as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Duwamish Longhouse with a FREE screening + postfilm discussion of PRINCESS ANGELINE and two short films on Saturday, April 13th. (Full film synopses below). These films tell indigenous stories: past and future.

This event is a collaborative community dialogue produced by the Social Justice Film Festival & Institute in collaboration with the Duwamish Longhouse & Cultural Center.

The Duwamish people have been in the Seattle/Greater King County area since time immemorial. Their stories, such as “North Wind, South Wind,” tell of the last Ice Age, and an Ice Weir breaking over the Duwamish River. Their longhouse today stands across the street from where one of their largest villages was located before it was burned down by settlers in 1895. Today, the longhouse is a space where the Duwamish people can revitalize their culture, preserve living heritage, and share their stories with the community.

We hope you will join us as we celebrate the anniversary of the creation of this space with an evening of fantastic films.

** Suggested Donation: $10 for 10 years **

FILMS:

PRINCESS ANGELINE

Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle, is seen on many postcards and toward the end of her life, she lived alone, refusing to leave her homeland. What historical events led to her being one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890′s, only 35 years after the peace treaty? This video explores the story of the Duwamish and their unrecognized tribal status primarily through the life of Princess Angeline.

Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions is proud to present Edward Albee’s THREE TALL WOMEN, directed by Richard Buckley.

This excruciatingly honest play is an engaging examination of the life of one woman. She cascades from regal and charming to vicious and wretched as she wonders about and remembers her life: her husband and their cold, passionless marriage; her son and their estrangement.

This passionate production was the winner of the 1994 Pulitzer Prize.

Playing April 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 pm and April 7 and 14 at 3:00 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets or at the box office at Youngstown an hour before show time. Prices are $22 for adults and $18 for students & seniors.
