About the Jefferson Park Sunday Market

We started out as the merger of a crew of people wanting to have a Jeff Park market that started a discussion on Everyblock, plus a couple of us from JPNA with some connections to help get year one off to the quick start it needed, considering that original discussion was in March—after when many submissions, etc. are usually already in.

With the help of our friends at the Copernicus Foundation who gave us space that first couple of years, we started a tradition. But that black asphalt in the parking lot made it rough to be out there. So with that experience under our belt, and some new friends over at the park in the form of the Jefferson Memorial Park Advisory Council, we renewed our start by moving into the park, where we got welcome shade and added foot traffic. We been noted by some of our vendors the friendliest market they’ve participated in. That’s something that we love to hear as organizers.

We are a 501c3, and are staffed exclusively by volunteers.

Wildlight's Book Club with Sarah Landicho (Mtg. 1/3)

2:45 PM14:45

Wildlight's Book Club with Sarah Landicho (Mtg. 1/3)

Deep dive into the yogic tradition by joining Wildlight's Book Club with Sarah Landicho.

Our first selection will be "The Living Gita" by Sri Swami Satchidananda

As this commentary is specifically written for modern Western readers, this ancient Eastern text of the Bhagavad Gita (Song of God) comes to life for us here in the States. The Gita is the story of Arjuna, who is struggling with an epic war against family and friends, and his charioteer Krishna. Krishna, the Cosmic Lord, offers Arjuna insight into rising above his own humanity and frailties and teaches him how to tap into his inner guide: his Self.

Together we will break down the tale, the commentary, and the yogic terminology and discuss how the story is an allegory for everyday life. Additionally, we'll learn a lot about yoga.

There will be assigned reading for each of the four meet ups (sanghas) so please come prepared to discuss and ask questions.

First assignment: read through Chapter 5 before the first club meeting. Taking notes and preparing for discussion is highly recommended.

Cash donations will be freely accepted and forwarded to the Irving Park Food Pantry as seva (service) to our neighbors.

Burn Clean: Yin Yoga for Anger

Let's face it: if you're human, you are no stranger to anger. Yogis included. Anger is a secondary emotion that signals that something is amiss. In Buddhist teaching we learn that we have to sit in the fire of that anger to deal with the pain. In doing so, we burn clean. In this two hour workshop led by Dr. Kate Lassiter, RYT-200, yogis will have the opportunity to burn clean through a yin yoga practice and guided inquiry designed to tap into the places in our body where anger and pain are stored. Come get yourself clean.

Restorative Yoga + Reiki for Vernal Equinox

Restorative Yoga + Reiki for Vernal Equinox

Spring is an opportunity for renewal and rebirth—for planting seeds to nurture, and to witness the unending cycle of grow and change.

In the Northern Hemisphere on March 20, the Vernal Equinox has been honored for thousands of years as a celebration of life and fertility; a time for striking a balance between yin and yang—and as a “spring cleaning” of stagnant energy that has been stored over the long, dark and cold winter months.

This restorative yoga sequence is designed to facilitate that awakening; to gather and draw energy inward, and then release it outwardly as a metaphorical planting of seeds. Class will conclude with a reiki guided mediation to help students set their intentions of planting those seeds.

No experience necessary. Mats and props will be provided at Wildlight Yoga, 4140 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Admission is $25. Pre-registration required. Members receive 10% off. No refunds or credits.

Furniture Refurbishing Class

Would you like to learn how to refinish a basic piece of furniture? Twice is offering five furniture refurbishing classes this March- March 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30 from 10am-2pm.

The classes will be small 4 person groups. All students will be required to bring in 2 small pieces of furniture like a wooden chair, or small side table which could be something from around the house that needs a facelift, or a thrift store or garage sale find. One piece will be painted and the other stripped and stained.

Most materials required to refinish the chair will be provided by Twice, but there will be a list of items you will have to purchase for the class which you will continue to use on your own projects after taking the class. (Please call for more details, we require people to stop in ahead of your class date to go over supplies needed for your project as well to register and prepay to hold your spot in class).

Bring the items you want to refinish and Twice will show you how to turn it into something wonderful from beginning to end. You will be able to leave those items here until your class day. The classes are $150.00 per person. Each class is 4 hours. Sign up today, and learn the basics of furniture reinvention! 773.297.6396.
