Yoga NidraYoga Nidra

12:15 - 12:45 pm, Thursday, March 23

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 In yoga nidra the practitioner remains in a state of light pratyahara with four of his senses internalised, that is, withdrawn, and only the hearing still connects to the instructions.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.

bugle boyMusic goes to war-Muskegon's Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy

6:00 pm, Tuesday, March 28

Kurt Troutman, a professor at Muskegon Community College, presents:  Clarence Zylman-Muskegon's Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Mr Zylman was the inspiration for the Andrew Sister's WW II classic song (written by Don Raye), Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B.

Clarence was a lifelong Muskegon native (1906-1988) with a unique story to share.  Born in Muskegon and trained on the streets of Chicago, he toured the country as a professional trumpeter helping to lead a musical revolution: Boogie-Woogie Swing dance music. Drafted into the Army, he served his country as a bugler. Playing reveille in his own boogie-woogie style, he became a military legend. Stars and Stripes, the London Times, Newsweek and over 30 newspapers promoted him as the buglers who got the troops up with a jitterbug in their step. Clarence Zylman was Muskegon’s Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.
