Young Souls Phone Tree – April 2021
It’s time for another round of the Young Souls Phone Tree! While we’re still eagerly waiting for everyone to receive their vaccine, let’s connect with each other with a good old fashioned phone call. After a year of endless zoom calls, just a simple phone call can help lift our spirits and get us excited about better days ahead! This is a great way to meet new people and stay in touch with friends in the Young Souls community without adding to your Zoom fatigue. Sign up here by Wednesday, April 7th. Questions? Email Justine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Arlington Treasure Hunt – Presented by Phoenix Bikes – Sunday, May 2 – 12:30 pm
Using an online event site, you will be guided to each restaurant location to gather clues to win prizes, learn little-known facts about local shops, and taste delicious treats along the way. This ride has been designed to be flexible and social-distance-friendly, so that it can be done alone or with family, on bike or any other way you roll, over an afternoon or throughout the weekend. It’s all about having fun and celebrating local spots that make Arlington our vibrant hometown! And, the best part is that all proceeds support Phoenix Bikes‘ youth and community programs. Cost: $35.00. Sign up here by Thursday, April 29. Questions? Email Steph at email@example.com.
Yoga and Art – Thursdays, April 1, 8, 15, 22, 7:00 – 8:30 pm ($20 registration fee for series)
This four-week series will help develop or strengthen fearlessness as you explore your own creative power. Using the theories of creativity and art making expressed by Julia Cameron in The Artist’s Way and Elizabeth Gilbert in Big Magic as guideposts, instructor Meg Artley, E-RYT 500 and aspiring artist, creates a safe space for participants to embrace play and process rather than perfection in their creative work. Each class will include gentle movements done in a chair to relax the body; breathing and meditative techniques to calm the mind; and a creative prompt/artistic technique/introduction to an artist’s work to get the juices flowing. Participants will be given an assignment to work on at home along with specific techniques to try or to build upon, or resources for further investigation. Once the class is underway, time will also be spent sharing creative pieces or processes that participants want to share with the group. Pique your interest? Feel free to join our merry creative band. Please bring a journal or sketchbook and a writing/drawing instrument to the first class. Sign up here.

Vespers, Wednesday, April 14 at 7:30 PM
All Souls is hosting a virtual vespers service in a couple weeks. What is a vesper, you ask? Well, at All Souls it is a worship service modeled after the traditional Taizé worship service, which uses silence, scripture, prayer, and repetitive singing of short chants and rounds to quiet the mind and promote deep meditation. Come with an open mind and leave with a greater sense of peace. More info can be found here.
