Healing Circle

As a new healing group, we are providing a place for people in our community to share common concerns and emotional support. Our mission is to heal in a safe, non-judgmental environment and deal with the issues ranging from grief, death & dying to healing ourselves in healthy ways while co-creating strong community bonds.

We just need a little help to realize that "Life is Gold" and that we need healing, coping and education, especially if you have experienced the loss of a loved one or you are a survivor of a suicide loss. Please join us!

Challenge Day volunteers needed!

Truckee High @ the District Office, Oct 20th and 21st from 7:30-3:00
North Tahoe High in the gym on Oct 23rd from 7:30-3:00

Interested volunteers can contact Kim Bradley at: kbradley@ttusd.org

Please join us for an inspiring, motivating and impactful day of self- discovery and community. Come participate in high energy and interactive activities that teach 9th graders that they can “Be the Change” in their own lives. Challenge Day Leaders work to create trust and connection by helping the 9th graders step out of their comfort zones through music, games and small group activities. The students learn to recognize stereotypes and labels that exist among all of us which makes them more willing to reach out and connect with peers they may not have before. By the end of the afternoon, students will have an opportunity to share about themselves, connect with their classmates and state their commitment to creating change at their school and community. Your job as a volunteer is to actively participate with positive energy and an open heart. The day is both inspiring and awakening for students and adults. We would love to have you part of it!

music

“I’m singing in the rain, just singing in the rain. What a wonderful feeling I’m happy again.” 

All are welcome for this monthly meeting of singing.  We will sing together the songs that inspire, calm, excite or remind us of who we are. click here for details.  We will use but not be limited to the book, Rise Up Singing, which is an extensive source of songs.  Please bring this book if you have it.  You may also come with any song of your choice or you may just come with am openness to singing.  Instruments are also welcome and may be used to accompany the singing. 

When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape. Group singing, for those who have done it, is the most exhilarating and transformative of all. It takes something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you, shares it with a roomful of people and it comes back as something even more thrilling: harmony.

What researchers are beginning to discover is that singing is like an infusion of the perfect tranquilizer, the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirits.

A very recent study even attempts to make the case that “music evolved as a tool of social living,” and that the pleasure that comes from singing together is our evolutionary reward for coming together cooperatively, instead of hiding alone, every cave-dweller for him or herself.

Call 530-550-9155 with questions.
