December – no IONS meeting

Boise IONS does not meet in the month of December. We will be back the last Sunday in January – the 28 – with an excellent speaker! For this month and to close the year of 2017, we share with you these words from one of our members. EnJOY!

 

Life Is

Life seems to be a contrast of different points woven in a patchwork frame of reality.

Life is the hot touch of the summer sun on a warm summer beach.

Life is the cold breeze of frost-tinged wind in the winter woods.

Life is the loud bustle of a family picnic with kids and adults breaking out in loud celebration.

Life is the still moment of silence in your bed before the breaking of the dawns light.

Life is happy, life can be sad, it can be good, it can be bad.

It’s a complicated as a web of reality that stretches as far as the mind can reach.

Its as simple as right here, right now and this moment.

And at this time of year I honor the past, live in the present and look forward to the future unknown.

Good journey fellow traveler.

~ Mitchel Bethel, Boise IONS

August 27 IONS meeting

Boise IONS meets the last Sunday of each month except May and December from 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 6200 N Garrett Street in Garden City.

At the August 27 IONS meeting we will have the opportunity to learn about and practice Qigong, an ancient Chinese mind-body practice similar to Tai Chi. The name means “energy practice.” Physically, it helps reduce stress, rejuvenate your body, and over time can build stamina and vitality. Studies have shown qigong helps speed recovery from illness, strengthens the immune system, restores flexibility, prevents bone loss, as well as reduces anxiety and stress. Mentally, it calms the mind as well as offering a heightened awareness of oneself and one’s connection to one’s surroundings. It is, literally, meditation in motion.

Presenter Michelle Wood has been involved in Chinese Medicine energy practices for 20 years. In 1997, she began practicing qigong, and taught classes through Central Oregon Community College, and private classes. From 2013 – 2015, she served as Editor In Chief of the Yang Sheng (Nurturing Life) E-Magazine dedicated to disease prevention, self-healing, and spiritual cultivation.

You may visit her qigong blog Be Well With Qigong where you will find many fine articles, and information on qi, qigong, and practices.

Dementia is the latest scourge in our country. By age 85, 51% of us are expected to develop some form of dementia!

Join Dementia Prevention Specialist Victoria Savage RN (Nurse Savage on Your Side) for an information-packed talk entitled, “IS IT POSSIBLE TO AVOID DEMENTIA?”

This comprehensive talk covers not only the nutritional, physical, and supplemental possibilities, but the psychological-mental aspects as well.

June 25 IONS meeting

Boise IONS meets the last Sunday of each month except May and December from 2 to 4 PM at the Boise Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 6200 N Garrett Street in Garden City.

 

At the June 25 IONS meeting, Jeannette Weston will discuss: What do eating cookies at the airport and passing the time for a few minutes with an office receptionist tell us about our impact on the people around us in everyday situations? What if we all lived mindfully? What does showing kindness get us, as a society, as a country, as a community, as an individual? Do the ends justify the means? The ends reveal our ambitions. The means reveal our values. Both matter. Our actions and attitudes matter. Our intentions matter. We are all significant. We send invitations to others just by being who, what, and how we are. Actually, just “being” is a lot of what this life is about.

 

Jeannette Weston worked at Hewlett Packard for 14 years, first as a software engineer, then as a manager. Then she managed a team of developers creating training materials, used to train call center workers, until she retired in 2008. Since then, Jeannette has been dabbling with a bit of editing for an author. Over her lifetime, she has done a little self-improvement and some contemplation. Sometimes she shares a tidbit or two she has run across in that process.
