Everyday Yoga @ Center for Mindful Use
Oct 17 @ 5:55 pm

All-levels yoga postures and teachings for the everyday person. Join us every Wednesday at 5:55 p.m. in the Forum de Freedom to learn the practice of yoga in simple language.

Yoga is a practice that helps us access a state of integration and wholeness inside ourselves. It is not just for the flexible, although it will build flexibility. It is not just for the meditator, although it will teach you to meditate. If you can breathe, you can practice yoga.

Come join The Heart School, a depth yoga school for everyday people, as we learn and practice the whole-person experience of yoga together. Yoga asana (postures), breathwork (pranayama), meditation and philosophy.

*Must bring your own mat*

Please arrive on time. Doors will be locked soon after our practice begins to minimize disturbance.

Drop-ins welcome. The class is free with inspired love donations gratefully accepted.

Please check www.mindfuluse.org for last-minute schedule changes.

Doctober Film Screening: “Modified” Sponsored by Community Food Co-op @ Pickford
Oct 17 @ 7:30 pm

Please join the Community Food Co-op for an evening featuring a heartfelt movie, panel discussion and a Q&A session on one of the most important farming concerns of our times.

Doctober Film Screening: “Modified”
Sponsored by Community Food Co-op
Pickford Film Center
Wednesday, October 17, 7:30 p.m.

The Co-op will host informational tabling prior to the movie with a short panel discussion and Q&A session after the film. Purchase tickets at: https://www.pickfordfilmcenter.org/programs/pickford/modified/.

A documentary filmmaker and her mother embark on a very personal and poignant investigative journey to find out why genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are not labeled on food products in the United States and Canada, despite being labeled in 64 countries around the world. Interweaving the personal and the political, the film is anchored in the filmmaker’s relationship to her mom, a gardener and food activist who battled cancer during the film’s production. Winner of eight festival awards.

Panel:

Steve Crider, Founder and consultant at Stone Soup Advisors, LLC. Steve is the former head of Government & Industry Affairs at Amy’s Kitchen. In that capacity, he worked for 6 years on the Right to Know/GMO labeling battles, including the political campaigns to pass mandatory GMO labeling through state ballot initiatives in CA, WA and OR – and also the effort to defeat the DARK Act in Congress.

Kristin Wheeler, Communications Manager, Non-GMO Project. The Non-GMO Project Standard is North America’s most rigorous and reliable standard for GMO avoidance. The only way to truly avoid consuming GMOs is to Look for the Butterfly. https://www.nongmoproject.org/

Crystine Goldberg and Brian Campbell of Uprising Seeds, a small family-run organic seed farm. Uprising Seeds is committed to strengthening the public commons of seed genetics by working to preserve and improve open-pollinated varieties, keeping biodiversity strong through adaptability and resilience. Uprising Seeds is adamantly opposed to GMOs and considers it a challenge and honor to take part in the rebuilding of healthy and just food systems for all. Uprising Seeds has been a Co-op Farm Fund recipient and Brian and Crystine have also served on the Farm Fund committee. https://uprisingorganics.com/

Hope to see you there.

Monday Meditation @ Center for Mindful Use
Oct 22 @ 5:55 pm
Monday Meditation @ Center for Mindful Use | Bellingham | Washington | United States

Whether you are new to meditation or a veteran “sitter,” please join us every Monday evening in Bellingham’s Forum de Freedom as the CMU community gathers to practice stillness. Meditation unites mind, body and spirt, helping one tap into the deep state of relaxation, peace — and sometimes inspiration! — that exists within all of us.

Some have found mindful cannabis use an aid to meditation, helping calm the “monkey mind” and ground oneself in the present moment.

Our Monday Night Meditation could not be more simple. We meet. We greet. We take a seat. On most evenings, our practice includes our beautiful Tibetan crystal singing bowl, which invokes a state of deep relaxation that can naturally assist one in entering a meditative state.

And we always finish before 7:00 p.m.

This is not a meditation class, but during the “greet” we can share meditation practices that may assist those new to meditation.

Please arrive by 5:55 p.m. so we can begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. Doors will be locked shortly after our meditation begins to minimize disturbance to other sitters.

Drop-ins welcome. Please bring your own meditation pillow (we do have a few first-come/first-serve loaners) or plan to use a chair. It all works. And it’s all free. (Inspired love donations always gratefully accepted.)

Please check www.mindfuluse.org for last-minute schedule changes.

Unless otherwise noted, events sponsored by the Center for Mindful Use are “Canna-friendly,” that is that our instructors neither encourage nor discourage cannabis use, but encourage guests to show up as they are.
