Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert <p>The Denver Botanic Gardens will be hosting its annual Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert to help you relax and get away from all of the holiday stress. Tibetan singing bowls are musical instruments that have been used for thousands of years to promote healing. Bring your yoga mat, a blanket, and your cluttered mind for a relaxing night of sound healing.<br /> <br />Denver yoga instructor and sound healer Chris Anne Coviello and her husband Jason Coviello will be performing together in this warming winter concert. The concert will begin with Jason playing his Hang Drum, which is a very rare steel drum that some say sounds like a stringed instrument. Jason’s Hang Drum is tuned to notes that vibrationally correspond to the heart chakra. When you hear this drum, you will be taken on a heart-opening journey.<br /> <br />Jason and Chris Anne will then begin playing the Tibetan singing bowls, which are tuned to musical notes that correspond to the different chakras of the body &#8211; restoring your balance of energy. Since the body is made up of mostly water, the vibrational effect of the Tibetan singing bowls feels like a full body cellular massage.<br /> <br />So come, relax, close your eyes, and drift into a state of calm. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat or blanket so that you may lie down. As your chakras re-align, breathe peace and enter the profound state of physical, mental, and emotional well-being.</p> 1007 York St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Starting Your Garden from Seed <p>Few things excite a gardener more than buying new plants for their gardens, especially if the plants are exotics, unusual or heirlooms. Second-only to the creation of new plants is the financial benefit of growing your own plants, whether flowers, herbs or vegetables.</p> <p>This class will demystify the seed-starting process primarily focused to the novice gardener, but a good review of the best success tips if a more advanced gardener needs a refresher. Learn simple seed botany and the process of best practices for successful seed germination, successful transplanting, and seed collection and storage and cover some of the reasons seeds and seedlings fail.</p> <p>After discussion, participants will get a hands-on demonstration and students will leave with seed trays and seeds to return home and practice what you have learned in class. This class will help you up your game to produce all the transplants you could possibly need and set you up for upcoming classes on spring and summer vegetable gardening and succession planting.<br /> <br />Instructor: Patti O'Neal<br />Price: $37, $32 members, includes $5 for materials.<br />Special Instructions: Each participant will get a seed tray for seed starting, with all necessary materials to get your garden going this year!</p> <p>Image Courtesy of: photofarmer (flickr)</p> 1007 York St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction <p>This five week joint program offers an in-depth look at mindfulness tools for engaging the demands of our lives and for deepening our inquiry into fundamental health and wholeness. Through exploring the teachings and practices of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)—including sitting and walking meditation, body scan, and mindful yoga—you will become better equipped to manage stress and to confidently integrate mindfulness into daily life. This course is based on the 8-week MBSR program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn.</p> <p>** This course is offered at a discounted rate as most other MBSR classes are 8 sessions long, while this course is only 6 weeks long, due to the decrease in class time the price has been adjusted. All topics will still be covered in this series but less time will be spent on a few things.</p> 1007 York St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting <p>Pixelated explores the relationships between the natural world and the artificial world of digital media. Mike Whiting says “Gardens are in their own way virtual spaces—carefully created environments. The contrast of the sculptures’ geometric and manmade materials can seem at odds with the gardens, but they are connected in the dialogue about the re-presentation of nature.”</p> <p>Whiting’s sculptures also represent the intersection of two distinct visual styles: 8-bit pixel graphics—which have enjoyed a recent resurgence in games like Minecraft—and minimalist sculpture. Technological limitations in early video games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders reduced the graphics to simplified shapes, while the minimalist art movement created artworks that purposely lacked detail. Pixelated investigates the opposite intents of these two artistic approaches that result in a strikingly similar visual outcome.</p> 1007 York St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
