(Save to cal)

U of U - Continuing Education / ANNEX Rm TBA 1901 East South Campus Drive, The University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, spring is conceptually related to liver and gallbladder energy. These specific energy meridians focus on moving the flow of energy through your body and releasing it from energetic interference and stagnation. Spring tends to agitate people dealing with allergies, asthma, anxiety or depression, joint pain and weight gain, but it can also be the perfect time to clean, renew and prepare your body for a healthy and balanced year. Join us to learn about your body's 12 energy channels and the acupressure points that can help you and your family smoothly transition from winter to summer. This class qualifies for the wellU requirements. - See more at: https://continue.utah.edu/lifelong/class/llhl_154_acupressure_for_allergies#sthash.rLe77Wqu.dpuf

The Chainsmokers @ Park City Live

May 29, 2015 8:00 pm

(Save to cal)

Park City Live 427 Main Street, Park City, UT 84060, USA

The Chainsmokers make their stop at Park City Live on Friday, May 29th!

Wise beyond their years and aggressively handsome, these two overachievers are focused on success... Never before has the world seen two furry browed individuals such as these two (seriously they have really bushy eye brows)... As you might have imagined Alex and Drew did not meet on the set of their Vogue Cover shoot while surrounded by super models, but rather somewhere else.

Apart from Social Darwinism, the thing that separates these two men from the rest is their unsettling and uncanny ability to discover and create trends. They find the parts of things that people actually give a sh*t about, whatever they may be, and focus on creating and improving those parts. With live sets and productions that their own mothers describe as, "sounds nice, but a little loud," these two always put on a show that was not ever described as sexy and life changing, but should be.

Apart from their unique personalities and boyish good looks, they have many similarities. They each graduated from prestigious North-Eastern Universities, they like hot chicks in yoga pants, enjoy a good burger, and have been rejected from many of the venues they now play at. Don't miss your chance to see The Chainsmokers LIVE when they make their stop while on their 2015 Recess Tour at Park City Live this May!

Northern California's outlaw music bards bring a reputation for high-energy live shows and an incomparable fusion of bluegrass/old time, southern rock, and old school jam to stages and festivals worldwide. Poor Man's Whiskey has been growing exponentially in the past 5 years selling out venues across the country such as the legendary Fillmore in SF.This "High-Octane Hootenanny" will certainly delight those interested in a foot-stompin good time. Poor Man's Whiskey has evolved into a ragged, spontaneous beast pulling from equally deep wells of story-telling originals, expertly crafted covers and zany on-stage shenanigans. PMW has released 6 studio albums and have a stunning repertoire to choose songs from creating a new show every night. In addition to their upbeat original sets Poor Man's Whiskey have developed special late night "tribute sets" with their original bluegrass/americana twists which include "Dark Side of the Moonshine" (bluegrass interpretation of the classic Pink Floyd album) , "Graceland" (tribute to the classic Paul Simon album), "Old and In the Way", "Tribute to Allman Brothers Band", and "Tribute to Kate Wolf". Crowds of all ages will sing, dance and have a good time!

The State Room 638 South State Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, USA

an evening with two sets...

Preservation Hall was founded in 1961 to promote traditional New Orleans jazz in all its authenticity. Legendary players like George Lewis, Sweet Emma Barrett and Kid Thomas Valentine, all rooted in the formative years jazz, were its original stars. That generation is long gone now, yet the hall is still in business and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band continues to tour the world.

Therein lies a paradox: how does an institution based on an early 20th century musical culture prosper in the 21st? When asked that question on the occasion of the Hall’s 50th anniversary, Creative Director Ben Jaffe had a ready answer: “This anniversary is about the next fifty years.”

The Young Wild Women Symposium has been brought to fruition after the launch and success of the 2014 Wild Women Symposium events. Our attendees came back with countless requests to create an event for young women. We listened and agree!

This weekend has been designed to be fun and informative for a younger audience – ages 14-18. If you have young women in your life that are at that place where you want to give them instruction about being in their conscious Divine Feminine then this is the event to begin that journey. We have taken the lessons learned from our Wild Women Symposium and modified it for a younger mind and audience. This is a lovely event that is safe and supportive for young women to come together and learn about what their person Divine Feminine is supposed to look like. We are here to give tools to help young women understand the complex nature of their health, well-being, and emerging sexuality.

We will be using tools of meditation, yoga, connected breath modalities, and emotional healing techniques to support them in learning coping skills that they can carry with them into adulthood. We intend to support their emerging beauty in empowering ways that help young women gain confidence and to learn how to handle stresses in school and life. Join us for an adventurous weekend of sharing, movement, expansion, intuition, transformation and fun.

Our weekend offers a variety of classes to choose from including:

  • The Essence of Numbers
  • Body of Light Yoga
  • Breath Works Meditation
  • The Secret Power of Love
  • Unveil Your Inner Money Goddess
  • Embracing your Animal Totem as a Mirror Reflection
  • Your Intuitive Gift
