Join us for a monthly, themed, donation-based event where interested folks can learn from uniquely talented individuals who want to share their passions with you.
We have made this event to create a positive environment for discovering neat things with clever people. Let us gather and share what we love about the lives we live, and discover a new passion along the way. Open to anyone who wants to take time for themselves and cultivate useful skills in a communal learning space.
Participate in one or all of the classes offered. Donations are encouraged to help support the continuation of this monthly event.

Silent Seated Meditation 9 – 9:45 am
facilitated by Monica
Join us in a silent first hour of the day while we sit collectively and tune in to the present moment. Prepare to be quiet upon entering the Sanctuary, simply smiling at others as you settle your seat. May the silence of your body and mind help you focus and become more aware of your other senses, your breath, and the vast space to explore within you. Feel free to trickle into the room anytime during the hour.

With Martial Arts Hall of Fame and 2x World Masters gold medalist Jeff Bonugli & Robert Bouse with Stand Alone Fighting
This intensive training course offers you practical skills and tools to help you feel stronger and protect yourself from looking like easy prey. You’ll get some practice applying what you’ve learned thru simulated experiences. Prepare to unleash your inner survivor!
**This class is limited to 20 students—sign up today!!
Terrarium Building Playshop 1:30 – 2:45 pm
Lead by Rachel Figgs
Come get your hands dirty with the meaningful and meditative practice of building your own personal terrarium. Terrariums are usually constructed from glass containers adapted to hold soil and living plants. They can be either open faced or completely sealed. In this playshop you will be given everything you need to create your own micro-ecosystem, as well as information on how to keep it healthy for years to come. No need to bring a thing except an open mind and a creative spirit. However, if you have an old vase or empty glass candle jar lying around the house and you’re in the mood to up-cycle, feel free to bring it along!
No-Sew T-Shirt Transformation Tutorial 3 – 4:15 pm
Lead by Rosie Garza
Most of us have Tshirts we never wear that crowd our closets and drawers. Now is your chance for an expert crafter to walk you thru the process of re-fashioning those old shirts into new and improved tops that bring you joy when you wear them! Bring an old Tshirt (or buy one from Family Fitness!), a pair of sharp scissors, and a fun attitude ready to transform old to new!
Move/Reflect/Create: Garden of Gratitude 4:30 – 6 pm
Co-Lead by Elaine and Monica
