    This all accessible, all are welcome yoga practice is simply about showing up. While we move and observe how our breath responds while we work, while we recover, while we struggle and challenge, while thoughts float towards and away from our focus…we’ll return to the truth that we are most potent when we are arrive present. We will practice presence. This is an hour of self-focus, self-care and much needed selfish time. When we take time to be selfish, we are more equipped to be selfless for those people and passions that we care about. Join J.C. post class for brunch at The Lynhall and further conversation around creating safe space and community building events.

    Class Fee is $25 with a portion of proceeds benefitting The Long Table Fund.

  4. Life Unfiltered: A Conversation with National Geographic Photographer, Cory Richards

    In honor of September Recovery Month The Lynhall is hosting an event series that integrates science with soul. These events are focused on creating a deeper understanding of addiction, recovery and healing. We hope you will join us for a vibrant and engaging series.

    A climber and visual storyteller, Cory Richards is a National Geographic photography fellow—a designation reserved for only a handful of people described as those whose work “transcends the art of photography, taking them on journeys to the world’s most remote places and often placing them in great danger —in order to tell the stories that need to be told.”

    View & Purchase Tickets Online

    A high school dropout without a steady home by the age of 14 and struggling with addiction, Richards found an outlet in extreme adventure and developed his voice through photography. Richards was named one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year in 2012 for being the first American to summit an 8,000­meter peak in winter. The film he co­produced about this climb, Cold, would go on to win the grand prize at the Banff Mountain Film Festival in 2012.

    Richards aims to capture the spirit of adventure and the complex relationship we have with nature. His work has taken him to the extremes of our planet—from Franz Josef Land for a firsthand look at climate change and its immediate effects, to Antarctica, where he and a team of explorers would make first ascents on some of Antarctica’s majestic peaks.He turns his lens on ancient mysteries and science, as well as the ongoing struggle between cultural traditions and a growing, warming planet.

    Always seeking the next challenge, in 2016 Richards and climbing partner, Adrian Ballinger, became the first people to document their entire eight week Mount Everest expedition via Snapchat with the handle #EverestNoFilter. Richards summited Everest without supplemental oxygen – a feat fewer than 200 people have achieved.

    Cory has spent years working in the strata of both commercial image-making and National Geographic journalism. While his early career was defined by his ability to put his body where others can’t or won’t, he is now trying to reach beyond the entrenched tropes of the paradigm of “shooting” and to forge his own path. Richards is in search of unexpected confluences, the nexus of subject areas where we might find productive discourse to shift our thinking around important issues of the day. As he puts it, “It’s time to say what needs to be said and pick projects that actually move the dial.” Richards’ focus now is on the gentleness required to bring people into intimacy, to invite viewership and participation.

    Richards’s client list includes National Geographic, Outside, the New York Times, Red Bull, and Fossil. His films have won awards at nearly every major adventure film festival in the world.

    About Kintsugi:

    Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

    About Dave Pike:

    Dave Pike has lived in Japan since 1994. Most places that teach, even in Japan, use glue first and then cover that with lacquer. Dave uses lacquer from the beginning. Dave has done kintsugi professionally since 2008 and studied with an award winning lacquer artist for many years to get a deeper, more rounded understanding of lacquer, gold and silver, essential to doing kintsugi at a professional level. He has taught workshops and given talks internationally and in Japan, teaching people from Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and North America in his beginners 3 hour workshop, beginner/intermediate 3 day workshop, and advanced 10 day workshop.

    He has presented at U.C. Berkeley and other venues and had numerous students with fellowships grants, several with Churchill Fellowship grants, and others who have taken the course for professional continuing education. Dave is also deeply involved in wood fired ceramics and Japanese antiques. His long experience, deep knowledge, and bilingualism makes him unique. workshops are rare, even in Japan, in that you work with lacquer from beginning to end.

    Dave’s goal is to teach you how to do kintsugi and answer your questions so you too will have enough confidence, hands on experience and knowledge to start on your own journey to understand a technique dating back to medieval times.

  8. October Wisdom Series: Senator David Durenberger

    About Senator David Durenberger

    Dave Durenberger represented Minnesota in the United States Senate for three terms after being elected in Nov 1978 to the unexpired term of Sen Hubert Humphrey which his wife Muriel had been appointed to fill on his death in Jan. 1978. He is the recent author, along with Lori Sturdevant, of When Republicans Were Progressive, a history of the successful contributions of Republican leaders in Minnesota from 1938 until 1998.

    Dave was born, raised and educated on the campus of St. John’s Abbey and University, served in the U.S. Army Reserve as the first officer graduated from the school’s Army ROTC program in 1955, and received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Minnesota in 1959. He practiced law with Harold LeVander in South St. Paul and served as Executive Secretary to Governor LeVander from 1966 to 1970. Thereafter Dave served as Director of Legal and Community Affairs at H B Fuller Co in St. Paul until his election to the Senate.

    Upon retirement from the Senate in 1995 he joined the faculty of the Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas where he chaired its National institute of Health Policy for 20 years. Dave and his wife Susan B. Foote are parents of six children and 14 grandchildren. Susan is the author last year of Crusade for Forgotten Souls the story of Minnesota’s historic efforts to reform its asylum system as a national model of systemic mental health reform. 

    The Senator’s book, besides being a unique history of the Republican Party of Minnesota, is a rare insight into how the faith journey of a U.S.Senator can influence both personal and international relations; in unexpected ways and by unorthodox means.
