“There cannot be much going on the last half of August,” I told myself. This bit of musing turned out to be ridiculously incorrect; there so many expansive offerings of interest to the Mind-Body-Spirit community over the next few weeks, it won’t be possible to go to them all. So, I am going to narrow down my choices to some that offer a variety of experiences in one neat package.
Happy Pioneer Day to all. After almost 20 years of living in Utah, I continue to forget—each and every single year—this auspicious holiday exists. But pushing boundaries and venturing into foreign landscapes of the heart, mind and body continue to be good for the soul in any epoch or locale and so it is worth celebrating. Wagons onward; there is much to explore in the next few weeks.
Don’t leave town – stay and enjoy your own personal journey locally with delectable classes and events that nourish you on the inside and out. There is plenty to choose from over the next few weeks and, like opening a box of chocolates, it might be difficult to pick just one.
March marks the beginning of the end of winter! As we bid adieu to the inversion, snowy conditions and icy roads, new opportunities for growth and self-discovery begin to appear. The brightening sky is the limit!
If grey days and hideous plumes of smog are getting you down, CATALYST's art picks for February may brighten you right up... can't promise anything about the weezing though, so don't forget your gas mask.
Neighborhood House, located on Salt Lake’s west side at 1050 West 500 South, was founded in 1894 by former teacher Emma K. McVicker. McVicker hoped to provide children from lower-income neighborhoods with the tools to succeed in main-stream schools with their more privileged peers. Today, Neighborhood House provides the same level of services to the community, providing a multicultural and multilingual environment for pre-school children, after-school programs, and opportunities for older children to work as mentors, as well as adult day car for elderly individuals. Committed to providing resources to enrich the community, Neighborhood House also offers some unusual cultural resources, such as their outdoor Urban Gallery.
