Here’s to your health!

Below are photos from our previous workshops, benefits of SKY meditation, and testimonials.

Testimonials

“Yesplus (now SKY) made me very conscious of my thought patterns, and conscious of a sense of self that exists independent of those thoughts and different moods. It made me calmer, more reflective, more observant, and more stable–I enjoyed the course a great deal, and have found that a daily practice is something I’m relying on. (And this reading and finals period has been largely stress free, mainly because meditating removes most of that stress!)”

— SARAH, SOPHOMORE, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

 

“Alertness, creativity and efficient teamwork, I realize, are the cornerstones in contributing and getting the most from a demanding schedule at a business school. I observe that while students struggle to maintain their energy throughout the day, Yesplus practices helps me to be in “the zone”. They tremendously assist me to keep my smile throughout the day, deliver successfully and involve myself ingeniously… all without feeling a sense of stressful effort. What else can one ask for!”

— CHETAN, MANAGEMENT FELLOW AT SLOAN SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Funding Awarded to Community Arts Projects in Eugene

Community Arts Grant 2018-2019 Awards_Media Release-2agox5p

Lane Arts Council & City of Eugene 
Award Funding to Community Arts Projects
Lane Arts Council announces $56,125 in grants to arts organizations and arts projects in the Eugene area. The Community Arts Grant Program is funded by the City of Eugene Cultural Services Division and administered by Lane Arts Council.
The Community Arts Grants help ensure diverse and accessible arts opportunities and experiences for Eugene artists, audiences and participants.
This year nine community arts organizations, with annual budgets above $100,000, will receive Program Grants and 17 community arts projects will receive Project Grants. Project grants will fund: theatre productions, poetry slams, arts and writing competitions, summer rock camps, festivals, art exhibitions, mural programs, fashion shows and more.
St. Vincent de Paul was awarded a Community Arts Grant for their Metamorphose Earth Day Event in which they will invite the community to participate in upcycled/recycled art and design challenges and learn about responsible waste-diversion.
“Community Arts Grants play a critically important role in Eugene by helping to meld mission with art—and that art helps to make that mission visible, vibrant and accessible,” says Terry McDonald, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul. The agency also received a Community Arts Grant that will enable a local artist to work with residents of the new SVDP Youth House for homeless teen girls to create a mural telling their collective story.
Another grant recipient, Wordcrafters in Eugene, will present a Fiction Fantastic contest for young writers to showcase their creativity and publish their written works.
Wordcrafters in Eugene Executive Director, Daryll Lynne Evans, explained why the grant is meaningful to their organization: “Having access to quality creative writing instruction is vital for our youth to discover their voices and hone their story-telling skills. This grant makes it possible to give youth in our community a space to be published and know that their voices matter.”
“Arts and culture is the heartbeat of our city and the reason why so many of us love living in Eugene,” states Liora Sponko, Lane Arts Council Executive Director. “These grant awarded projects and programs provide our community with access to the incredible artistic contributions of our local artists and arts organizations.”
Join us for a special award ceremony open to the public:
