Many ducked into nearby businesses for cover. Only 45 minutes earlier, Swift […]

Wanted: space to hold group meditation programs

Hello, I'm an integrative medicine practitioner on staff at Rush, & have a private practice in Andersonville.

In early 2015, I'll be facilitating a 6-week meditation series for people who would like to learn more about the mind/body connection, & explore a variety of meditation skills to help reduce stress and enhance well-being.

I'm looking for a beautiful, warm, extremely quiet, cozy, carpeted space that's large enough to comfortably hold 15-20 ppl who will meet 1x per week for 6-weeks (most likely held in the evening or wkend).

If you have any creative ideas, please contact me.

Thank you and happy holidays.

    It's not carpeted necessarily, but you may be able to use some of the props there to make sitting more comfortable, but maybe you can rent some space at Yoga Tree.

  • Also in the non-carpeted, but potentially conducive category -- Cheetah Gym on Broadway. They used to hold a Community Yoga class on Sundays--but discontinued it for some reason. In any case, they have a nice big group exercise room with lots of yoga mats in different sizes & there currently aren't any classes in there on Sat & Sun afternoons. Not sure what all of your needs are, or what their rules are, but they're an extremely nice group of folks there, and it might be worth looking into.

New Community

Has anyone noticed the growing new neighborhood under the Foster LSD underpass? Includes a large group of homeless with recliner chairs Christmas socks and houses. Also at the Lawrence underpass. What are donations to the foodbank good if they don't use it. Is the begging for alcohol and drugs and should we encourage these villages to grow? Have written Alderman 3 times with no response or action... Maybe we need to get a new Alderman..

  • Hard drinkin' Lincoln ahh! A torrent of psychological abuse!

    A lot of decrepit Sro's have been shut down, the last cluster of Lawrence House tenants left awhile back.

  • People's needs:
    -food
    -water
    -shelter

    Money is not included in this list. The most that the average person can do for a random unknown person requesting help is offer food or water.
    BTW, if you really care about the homeless people you see on the street, cook up an awesome dinner and bring it to them. A nice, hearty, proper meal is something many homeless seldom see.

Police Activity at The Breakers

Anyone know what is going on at The Breakers on Sheridan north of Foster? At about 9am, about 8 police cruisers drove up near the service drive with lights and sirens. They promptly put up yellow crime scene tape blocking any traffic into the service driveway and then red tap around a dumpster in the back service area. You cant see the red taped area from the street but its visible from the park behind the building.

I would think maybe a jumper but too far from the building above for that. I wasn't able to find anything on other blogs about it. Hope its not holiday blues and everyone is OK.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Odd. Just a little later than that, there were at least two police cars at 5555

  • The way they had the dumpster red taped off I thought they might had 'found' something. Two hours later when I got home, everything was gone and back to normal.

Jewelry Repair Recommendations

Looking for someone to fix a gold chain in the Andersonville/Edgewater area. Obviously I don't want to overpay. Looked at Yelp, but most of the businesses listed are into Cash 4 Gold. I just want a decent repair shop, possibly one where I can have an antique watch repaired in the future. But right now I'm just looking for someone to fix the chain.

  • Nick-G Lakewood-Balmoral since the Millennium

    Went today, chain repair is reasonable (ten dollars) and I left the watch for an estimate. Appreciate everyone who took the time to give their feedback.

  • Thanks to everyone's advice, I got a reasonable quote for resizing for two rings at Bryn Mawr Jewelers. 45 bucks a ring! Best price that I've found!
