The Young Brothers group meets at HPL this month.  Once a month, men who have found a path to success in life gather and meet with teens from Muskegon and Muskegon Heights to discuss life, race, violence, drugs, and reaching their goals.  The object is reducing the vilence that has taken so many young lives.  There will be great food!  Join Dexter Brown, Jon Covington, and others to find out what this is all about.

Hen SappComedian Hen Sapp

7:00 pm, Tuesday, February 28

Love to laugh but don’t want to hear the profanity and vulgarity that some comedians use?  Hen Sapp is a very good family friendly alternative.   Everyone is welcome at his shows, kids included.  

Hen Sapp is a loving husband and father of two girls, and an edgy Christian comedian with a gift to make people laugh.  As long as he can remember, he has made people laugh, from classmates to teachers, friends and family with his quick and witty responses.  He learned to tell jokes by playing the dozens as a way to protect himself after being teased about his skin complexion.

This event will be held at The Corner, 280 W Muskegon Ave.

Brought to the community through a generous bequest from Bess Commodore. WUVS 103.7 "The Community Station" the Beat is the media sponsor.  This event is co-sponsored by the Central Unite Methodist Church.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. This state of consciousness (yoga nidra) is different from meditation in which concentration on a single focus is required. In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara with four of his senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions. The yogic goal of both paths, deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation are the same, a state called samadhi.
Yoga nidra is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. In lucid dreaming, one is only, or mainly, cognizant of the dream environment, and has little or no awareness of one's actual environment.
The practice of yoga relaxation has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well. It has been used to help soldiers from war cope with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Yoga nidra refers to the conscious awareness of the deep sleep state, referred to as prajna in Mandukya Upanishad.

Theresa Bernhardt will guide people in this practice.  Please bring a yoga mat if possible (some will be available.)  This is timed to be able to do on a lunch hour.
