April 24 – Intro to Taoism – Eric Friedman
"The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao." So bear with me, here.... Using reference points in the Kabbalah, Tarot, & Winnie the Pooh, Eric will provide an introduction to the basic principles of the sublime ancient Chinese philosophy of the Tao. With its related discipline of Tai Chi, Taoism is a way of understanding the world around us as being in a constantly evolving-into-manifestation-then-passing state of Change. Everything is constantly growing and simultaneously decaying. Taoism is awareness of this process, and how to flow with these currents in what should be a natural state of motion & progress.

May 22, 2:00 p.m. - Reclaiming Your Life - Greg Moorman/Clayton Bowman
Life is a journey, and sometimes that journey can lead us down some really dark roads. No one is immune to loss, grief, setbacks, and emotional letdowns. When that happens, it is important to not let those things become our whole lives. When the time is right, we need to reclaim our lives – find ourselves again, remember what’s important to us, make new discoveries, and give ourselves permission to be who we are absolutely meant to be. Greg believes we will leave this class feeling good, motivated, and empowered.

May 29, 2:00 p.m. - Sweet, Sweet Immunity - Lara Paxton
Raise your hand if you’re sick of hearing about COVID! How about just a little more? In this non-partisan workshop, we will have our questions answered. Lara Paxton has experience with midwifery, herbs, witchcraft, and bodywork. She spent many years as a doula and massage therapist in Seattle, as well as a trapeze artist in an underground circus. She has since completed her degree in neurobiology and is currently working on her master of public health degree. While a big fan of vaccines now, as a self-described young hippy mom, she was vaccine-hesitant, and understands where skeptics are coming from. She loves anti-vaxxers because they ask questions, do research, and demand accountability from our medical and scientific institutions. She will lead this class in a way that is not heavy-handed or judgmental, but will equip people with background knowledge to do good research and make well-informed decisions. Now is your chance to ask your COVID/vaccine questions in a safe environment.
