Body Image/Body Wisdom Series for Women with Jackie Dobrinska

…Six Tuesdays starting July 10th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

Change the way you see, not the way you look.  Imagine if we as women took just SOME of the time, money and energy we spend on obsessing over and changing our bodies and appearance, and instead put it toward our passions, creative endeavors, and passing fancies. We might unleash the internalized corset and recover something powerful, profound, wild and free. This series is NOT asking you to change ANYTHING! (Not what you love, what you hate or what you do. That’s the whole problem to begin with.) Instead this is a series of authentic conversations with women for women to explore topics we often don’t talk about: Media Culture:today and through time; Body Shapes, Sizes & Parts: love ’em, hate ’em, livin’ with ’em; Eating Food:restricting, binging, nourishment, guilt, pleasure; Getting Old:sags, greys, wisdom, wrinkles, regret, freedom; Cycles:pregnancy, pms, transformation, power; Sensuality:empowered, disembodied, approval, trade, magic.   Sign up with Jackie or visit www.ASimple

Men’s lives: Tuning In Deep… Six Tuesdays starting July 10 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm

Men’s Lives is a weekly group where men can go to feel a sense of brotherhood and tribe, and this new series is different from any you’ve seen before. We will merge two powerful worlds into one profound experience, by playing music together, and using this fuel of connection to dive in deep and get real, talking about things that matter to us, and share what’s really happening in our lives.

Each session, we will be joined by a special guest music-maker who will give his take on what music is and how to play in a group. Get ready to learn and grow in this unique setting while receiving some honest feedback on being a better man, a better musician, and to take a good look inside to see where your values and your life meet.  $5-$10 donation suggested, no one turned away for lack of funds. Instruments will be provided, voices only are very welcome. Men with little or no experience at playing music together are highly encouraged to attend and help break down the belief that there are “musi-cians” and “non-musicians.” This group will be facilitated by Jon Handelman.  visit jonhandelman.co

A Financial Crisis

We just received an emergency email from Sarah Woodard, Director of the Jubilee House in Nicaragua who spoke at our Celebrations on Easter Sunday. She writes, “As you may know, over the past few weeks Nicaragua has been in a state of unrest.  People suffering the most have been the families of those who died in the protests (47 confirmed dead); those injured (in the hundreds); and the poor, who desperately need your help. In the past week we have had three delegations cancel suddenly. The patients who come to our Nueva Vida clinic depend on these delegations to bring medicines. These sudden cancellations not only affect our overall budget, but also break the cash flow needed for minimum balances as we go through the low donation months of summer and fall.” Are you in a position to make a financial contribution? If so, please go to https://donatenow. networkforgood.org/jhc-cdca.

Green Thumb Needed!

We are looking for a person with a green thumb to take over the care of the plants in our building.  This would involve no more than 30 minutes per week to water, fertilize and trim.  One thing to note is that watering the plants in our Wall Street Entry area does require a person to climb a ladder. All supplies will be provided. Questions?  Want to give it a try?  Contact Don Fortuna, our Administrator, at [email protected] or (828) 252-5335.
