Burningman Slide Show w/ StuArt

Jugville Troubadour 2Friday August 7th, 7:30-9:30pm $5

 Bill Braasch and I are leading a group from West Marin to run the Wheel of Self Reflection in the Carnival of Mirrors at Burning Man.

The Carnival is the tented circle that surrounds the big Burning Man statue. Last year it was called the Souk. The Wheel of Self Reflection will be out there in the center of Black Rock Desert like it was set up at the center of Love Field for the Far West Fest.
People are looking for meaning at Burning Man, and the Wheel provides them with exactly that – meaningful coincidence supplied by Synchronicity..
Carl Jung was the first to call meaningful coincidence “Synchronicity,” and Synchronicity is what the Wheel is all about. In addition the charged psychic field at Burning Man dramatically increases the rate of Synchronicity as expressed through the fortunes from the Wheel.


That is the focus of this year’s project at Burning Man – to cultivate Synchronicity using a random generator on a charged psychic field. The Wheel of Self Reflection can become a True Oracle at Burning Man.

On Friday night we’ll show movies and tell stories about the last 2 years at Burning Man. We’ll describe what’s up for this year. The Wheel of Self Reflection will be there for you to spin.
In essence we’re taking Bolinas to Burning Man and we’ll be bringing Burning Man back to Bolinas. Your support, both financially and psychically, will ensure our success.
We’re cultural emissaries from West Marin and we’ll be bringing Burning Man back to you in song and pictures.
You can relax in the lush splendor of West Marin while we undertake a pilgrimage of Art & Synchronicity into the hot, dusty desert of Nevada.
          Thank you kindly, StuArt

What’s Funny After 50?

Whats Funny After 50 hi-res graphicJune 19th Comedy Show 7:00pm    $12 at the door

Dan St. Paul has been chronicling his life on stage for 30 years. After turning fifty, he discovered his body changing (“I’m a cylinder now. I can where a belt anywhere on my body.”), his memory faulty (“I have eight pair of reading glasses and I have no idea where they are.”), and dealing with a teenager more challenging (“I have a bumper sticker that says ‘My Son’s Just Getting By At Hillsdale High’.”).

Instead of moaning about it, he developed it into a show that leaves baby boomers and the senior set rolling in the aisles. Dan has been a national headlining comedian at some of the top comedy clubs in the country. He has appeared on NBC, ABC, FOX, Comedy Central, A&E, and VH-1. Dan has also opened for such celebrities as Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Ringo Starr, Natalie Cole, Hall and Oates, Vince Gill, Clint Black, and even the San Francisco Symphony (“I knew them when they were just a garage band.”) His “The First Baseball Game” is one of the most requested comedy pieces on the syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show.

A perfectly timed escape. A getaway without getting too far away. A few hours outside of the city to reconnect to what’s important.

We’ll start the day with a group hike or trail run close to Bolinas. Any one is welcome, whether a runner or not. I will have several different options for lengths and speeds so that everyone feels comfortable. We will stay together as much as possible.

After the run, we will head into Bolinas. There will be time to rest and have a snack and then we will have an hour long yoga class. You can expect the class to be challenging but relaxing. A blend of vinyasa flow with some restorative poses, class will be designed especially with runners in mind. We’ll breath, we’ll sweat, we’ll move; that’s what this day is all about.

We will end our day with a deliciously prepared vegetarian lunch. After that you will have the chance to explore Bolinas on your own time. It’s a very special place.

The entire day is open to all levels of yogis and runners!
