What: BE SOCIAL CHANGE CLASS: USING THE POWER OF STORYTELLING TO CHANGE THE WORLD

When: TUESDAY 9 SEPTEMBER

We must share stories that shift perceptions, ignite imaginations and inspire action. In this class you'll learn how storytelling plays an integral part in making change happen

Stories are the fabric of human identity. They are how we understand ourselves, each other and the world. Whether you are looking for funding, supporters, customers, working on writing a convincing business plan, delivering a 30 second elevator pitch, etc. you need to be able to tell a compelling story that moves people

Our ability to create change depends on our ability to tell a powerful story that not only enables others to see the world in a new way, but inspires them to become supports and champions of our causes. This workshop is designed to teach how to tell stories that catalyze your work and fulfill your personal or organizational mission.

What: NYC OM ONENESS MEDITATION WITH CUCHI

When: TUESDAY AUGUST 5

She has traveled to Hawaii, Miami, Denver, Argentina, Ecuador, México, Spain, Israel, Colombia to do OMs and Oneness Awakening Courses. Cuchi is an Awakened Oneness Advanced Trainer and Oneness Meditation.

ABOUT THE ONENESS MEDITATION: The Oneness Meditation is a unique and profound process of spiritual awakening, a Divine benediction that everyone in the room simply receives. This Divine energy liberates you from the conflicted mind, freeing you to experience each moment fully, just as it is. No beliefs, teachings or philosophies are required or taught at this event. In fact, during this process not a single word is spoken. However rather than just a quiet meditation experience, this process is often filled with spontaneous laughter or tears as people are moved by the presence of the Divine. If You are New to the Oneness Meditation all that is required is a willingness to experience the Divine Presence that is already within you. Participants of all faiths have discovered an experience that deepens and enlivens their own spiritual path. As the energies start to flow, it is common for participants to experience shifts in energy and consciousness, laughter and Oneness with their own Divine. The process is unique to each person and will continue to unfold. We welcome you to join us in New York City and experience these rare and unique Blessings to assist humanity with the shift into Oneness Consciousness that is upon us. Please invite your family and friends!

What: THE NEW FACE OF ORGANIC WINE

When: THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 18

More: During the last dozen years, the world of winemaking seems to have made an about-face with respect to the integrity of natural grape growing. The available number of organically-farmed wines has sharply increased, as has their quality. The new question has become, “just what does organic mean when it comes to wine”. Terms like “sustainably-farmed”, “biodynamic”, “vegan-friendly”, and “no sulfites added” are tossed about as if we were born familiar with advanced viticulture. Join us this September for an unconventional dinner party wherein Deborah will lay it all out and answer your burning questions regarding the modern organic wine movement. You’ll taste (and drink) many superb examples of organic wines from all parts of the spectrum, paired with meal-sized quantities of exquisite homemade foods. After the presentation, we’ll leave plenty of time for business networking. You’ll walk away with a whole new outlook and understanding of a growing wine market sector, not to mention some new contacts and a full belly!

The event reflects Wanderlust’s core mission: creating community around mindful living. How It Works. Start the morning with a 5k run sprinkled with a few fun challenges. After you catch your breath, we’ll gather for a guided meditation with live music. Then, roll out your mat for a massive, all-levels yoga class. And don't forget the post-savasana dance party!

What: Brooklyn Grange Farm - Farm Tour

When: Wednesday July 2

More: Come check out our Navy Yard location of Brooklyn Grange, the world's largest rooftop farm!  We'll tell you about our daily operations and farming methods, the basics of our business model, and the environmental benefits of urban ag and rooftop farming, then give you some time to explore.

Although there is no fee to register, there is a $10 suggested contribution.  The Brooklyn Navy Yard is a private property, and is not open to the public; however, in an effort to offer public access to the farm, we will lead two weekly tours of that rooftop on Wednesday afternoons.  This access is intended for individuals, families and groups of four or fewer.  Pre-registration is required and unregistered guests will not be granted admission.  

A Brooklyn Grange tour guide will meet registrants in the lobby of The Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, the Brooklyn Navy Yard's public museum and exhibition center, located at the corner of Flushing Ave and Carlton Street.  Upon checking everyone in, the BG tour guide will escort the group up to the farm; late arrivals will not be permitted into the Yard unattended, so please be on time.  The tour will last about 40 minutes, and guests will have 20 minutes to explore the farm before being escorted back down through the security doors into BLDG 92.  Including the travel time to and from the farm, please allow 75 to 90 minutes for this visit.  The tour will be offered rain or shine, so please dress appropriately (closed-toed shoes, sunscreen even in overcast weather, layers because it is colder on the roof).

Why not make a day of it?  The Brooklyn Navy Yard's BLDG 92 Museum is a great place to learn and explore.  Showcasing the history and innovation of The Brooklyn Navy Yard from the Revolutionary War to the revolution in jobs and industry happening in present day NYC, the museum is free to the public and has a revolving schedule of amazing exhibitions.  It is open from 12pm till 6pm on Wednesdays; hours on other days and more info are available on their website, http://bldg92.org/.

In addition to your tour of the farm, experience the "Past, Present & Future" of the Navy Yard on a guided tour of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92. BLDG 92, housed in both the 1857 Marine Commandant's House and a LEED Platinum green building, is home to interactive exhibitions which explore contributions made at the Yard to American industry, technology, innovation and manufacturing. Once America's premier naval industrial facility, the Yard is now home to the greatest concentration of manufacturing and green businesses in NYC. Come see for yourself!

The "Past, Present & Future" guided tour is free with a suggested donation of $5 and will leave from the lobby of BLDG 92 at 1:30pm. Tours last approximately 45 minutes. Registration is not required, but make sure that you sign up for the 2:30pm Brooklyn Grange tour if you'd like to do both!
