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.

BEWARE

Today while leaving the house a man tried to hand me this flyer. I said "no thank you". He then spat on me, began swearing and threatening me. When I tried to leave he began following me until I ran away. While I've handled informing the authorities who may need to know about this, I am now informing you. Please do not hire Mariano's Garage Doors and Construction. It is NOT ok what happened and being sexually harassed, or any harassment whatsoever things is unacceptable. Please share with the rest of Chicago.

    If she did not take the flyer am I to assume she found a flyer, or had the same flyer in her home or did a friend give her the flyer. Did she yes or no get the flyer from the diner? I still agree with 60660Gal u dig. In a court of law i.e. defamation of character/slander against the diner Jessie would have to explain where she got flyer she posted with this thread. This thread is a perfect example of how people "believe everything posted on inter-net but I won't swing my pendelum to find out if Jessie is lieing. I will leave that fact of responsibility up to the posters of this thread.

    Jessie, good morning an Happy Holidays. What is the name of the company that owns the diner you say is not a member of the Chamber of Commerce? Rogers Park and Edgwater there are several mexican men passing out neighborhood diner menus. We will not allow 1 person's view of them to slant us as a community against them.

Clothing Donation Drop Boxes in Edgewater

I have a lot of clothes I'd like to donate to charity, but since I've moved to EdgewaterI haven't seen any of the clothing donation drop boxes that were ubiquitous in Lakeview.

Can anyone in the Thorndale-Granville area tell me of any clothing donation drop boxes that are nearby?

Thanks!

  • Mrs S RP/WR resident since 1991

    There is drop box at St Hilary's for St Vincent DePaul 5614 North Fairfield Avenue, Chicago, IL 60659 Also, AmVets will pick up.

  • JMG

    Care for Real or Brown Elephant for nicer stuff in good condition.
    Salvation Army gets the older stuff, I figure they will recycle what they can't sell.

Community Health Survey

The Loyola Community Nursing Center is conducting a community health needs assessment survey of the Rogers Park, Edgewater and Uptown communities. Would you please take a few minutes to click on the link below and complete the survey?

Here is a link to the electronic version of the survey for community members: http://goo.gl/forms/ChBUx5hqkq

Thank you very much for your time.

If you have questions about the survey, please call the Loyola Community Nursing Center at 773.508.3339

  • This might explain what you experienced with Google, FB and anything else: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/privacy-concerns/

    This survey has no questions that glean identifiable information in it whatsoever. I would say it's more confidential than a survey any company would send you to complete. The companies ask for things like emails and phone numbers, stores shopped, transaction numbers, etc. This survey will know less about me than the store I last shopped at.

  • Loyola University Community Nursing Center Promoting Community Health & Wellness

    Thank you to everyone who has participated. The survey will be open for a few more weeks. We encourage you participate and add your opinions.

Helicopter & Police sirens

Near Bryn Mawr and there's a helicopter going round and round and then heard a bunch of sirens anyone hear what's going on?

Time 9:21pm

  • Ricky Coogin North Andersonville

    I recently read an article online about sirens and a firefighter commented that they have to run the sirens super loud since a lot of people simply will not move out of the way.

    The city ambulances are the ones that usually run loud, at least from my experience.

  • Trust me.. Siren decibel levels in the US is nowhere as high as they are in Europe.

Putrid Odor Overnight

Anyone know what that putrid odor is wafting across Edgewater on the stiff south breeze tonight? My guess is some severe petroleum plant odor blown up from Indiana. So intense, our whole apartment is permeated with it through closed windows.

  • So glad I'm not the only one who smells it, I thought I was going crazy, smelling my garbage can, wondering where on earth it could be coming from...

  • You said "putrid" and that only can be Gary.

    Only if you're a CDL driver do you have to get it actually replaced, otherwise you just have to notify them of the new address; the Chicago police themselves often don't know this, though. I've been told twice by two different cops my license was invalid. The beat cop in 24 (a real d'khead) gave me a ticket for something unrelated, because I challenged him on this fact, in fact. And it turns out, he's wrong. His ticket was also bogus and thrown out.

    'How do I get my license and registration corrected if my name or address changes?
    Within 10 days of changing your name or address, you must notify the Secretary of State by visiting a Driver Services facility or by writing to the Driver Services Department, Central Services, 2701 S. Dirksen Parkway, Springfield, Illinois 62723. If you wish to have a new driver's license reflecting the change, you must visit a driver facility and pay a $5 fee. To change your address, you can use the online Address Change Notification to transmit notification of address changes to the Driver Services Department. Please be sure to include your Driver's License or Identification Card number and registration number. A change of name for driver's license or ID card must be completed at a Driver Services facility. A CDL holder must obtain a corrected driver's license within 30 days of any such change.'

Wood Floor Repair

Hey there... Does anybody have the name of a carpenter or floor guy that could take a look at my kitchen wood floor. There is a soft spot in a certain area that I'm not sure what the cause is and I want to have somebody give me an idea and maybe a quote. Thanks!

    Throw in a couple wood screws in the soft spot and tack the flooring back down.

    a guy named Edwardo who didn't speak English, I txted him back and forth and his son would transpose... do you know any real estate agents? They're good for "floor people" -- I would never use an online search to find this type of work in Chicago. He did an amazing job, I'll see if I can find his #. It was the only part of my reno I GCed myself and my own GC wanted to hire him for other jobs. That was somewhere around 160-175 SF and the demo work was done and I did the sub-floor. The "clear grade" (no knots in wood, and possibly longer boards themselves) was $1-2 more /SF than standard grade that most use these days.

    Though I guess that's 8.ish SF so maybe it's not terrible given you have demo work and sub-floors. It just sounds like a lot. You're sure your joists themselves are OK too?
