Compassionate Communication Workshop

Compassionate Communication Workshop

What if the holidays were truly a time of peace and joy with those you love? 

For so many of us, the holidays are a loaded experience: even though we want to celebrate and enjoy this time with our loved ones, the combination of overstuffed calendars, large family gatherings and our own lofty expectations can lead us to fall into patterns of anxiety, conflict and disconnection. 

How would your holiday season change this year if the conflicts you experienced were generative, rather than destructive? If you could process your annoyance and irritation without isolating or blaming? If you could access compassion and empowerment, even when faced with challenging words or actions?

Join us for an afternoon of exploring the basics of Compassionate Communication!

In this session you will:

  • Learn useful ways to ground yourself and regain balance in stressful or uncomfortable situations.

  • Gain clarity about how to respond lovingly in the inevitable moments of challenge that arise while spending condensed time with your family members and relatives.

  • Upgrade the way you think, speak, and relate in order to experience a more joyful, authentic and connecting holiday season.

Investment: $50 per person

The Cloud Room Presents: A Holiday Party with LADIES!

The Cloud Room Presents: A Holiday Party with LADIES!

Join us for an intimate holiday show at The Cloud Room!

Seattle's Ladies was born from a shared love of Christmas between the three stellar vocalists, each an ascendant artist in her own right. When Lydia Ramsey, Erin Austin (OK Sweetheart), and Miranda Zickler (Kuinka) sing together, their voices ring out with a glowing warmth, clear and bright as a deep winters night. Mezzosoprano Ramsey handles the high harmonies and Zickler, the alto, takes on the low harmonies, while Contralto Austin pirouettes melodically between them. Each vocalist has a unique, captivating timbre; their respective solos are arresting. Yet, when they knit together in harmony, the result is profoundly transporting and timeless.    

Come celebrate the holidays while raising funds and awareness for Seattle nonprofit, Notice A Need, dedicated to providing care for the homeless.  Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to funding this cause.

Limited tickets available. Buy Now!

$40 Pre-Sale! Now - November 1st

$45 Advance Tickets

$60 VIP Package - Includes a pre-show meet & greet with the artists, pre-show acoustic performance, a signed poster and glass of bubbly! Doors open to VIPs at 6:30pm.

BeatClass

BeatClass is a free, all ages Ableton production workshop for non-cis-male-identifying producers in the greater Seattle area.

The purpose of this class is to provide free resources and instruction for non-cis-male-identifying producers in order to expand their music production skill sets in Ableton. BeatClass recognizes that beat making is a male dominated scene, so we aim to create a safe space for folks to learn, network, and collaborate.

The class will take place at The Cloud Room – a female-led co-working space in Capitol Hill – on Sunday, December 16th from 1-5pm. Two instructors, Sassy Black and Jake Crocker, will each teach a lesson. Capacity is limited to 16 students.

Submissions close November 23rd at 11:59pm.

A panel of non-cis-male-identifying producers will review submissions and selected students will be notified by December 3rd.

KUOW's Curiosity Club at The Cloud Room

A KUOW SUPPER CLUB FOR INQUISITIVE HUMANS

KUOW is curating a cohort of ten inquisitive humans for a three-month experiment to explore the idea that surprising stories and great food can transform a group of strangers into a community. We’re looking for folks who are eager to connect with people who are different than the ones they usually engage with. 

Curiosity Club members will be invited to The Cloud Room on Capitol Hill for three dinners. Our conversation will be fueled by some of KUOW's most interesting stories and locally-sourced, organic fare from Plum Bistro. These dinners will be held once a month on third Thursdays from January through March 2019. Applicants who are able to attend all three dinners will receive priority consideration. 

It's like a bookless book club. Or a nerdy supper club.

Apply using our online form. The application deadline is Friday, November 2 at 5:00 PM. KUOW will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.

The Families, Education, Preschool and Promise (FEPP) Levy renews the expiring Families and Education Levy (2011) and the Seattle Preschool Levy (2014) and will broaden its scope to serve early learners, K-12 vulnerable populations, and college access.

The proposed levy will make seven years of investment to:
- Nearly double the number of low-income children in quality, affordable preschool;
- Increase K-12 and community investments, including critical school-based health services, increasing teacher diversity and helping students most at-risk of dropping out of school;
- Expand access to college for all Seattle Public School graduates through the Seattle Promise College Tuition Program.

Spread Joy Day

Spread Joy Day

Join Knack Shops for Spread Joy Day at Chophouse Row!

This year especially, in an era when our newsfeeds are full of divisiveness, we’d like to start a movement that tells a different story. A major benefit of being in the gift business is that we see gratitude, encouragement and love fly out our door every day. The messages our customers write to their gift recipients tell stories of good deeds appreciated, new members welcomed, and humans unabashedly sharing their joy and appreciation. We believe that these missives connecting people together comprise the more powerful of the news we read every day, and we’d like to share them more broadly. 

We’ve done the work to make October 11th “National Spread Joy Day.” We're planning to give away 1,000 free gifts worth $75 to anyone willing to let us widely publish their gift message as inspiration to others. 

In addition, we will stage a live event in Seattle's Chophouse Row courtyard where we will give away 100 of the 1000 free gifts on the spot. This event will take place between 11:30 – 1:30pm and will feature food, live music and other activities.

A Night of City Poems and City Songs w/ Josh Feit, Emily Westman & Annie Jantzer

7:30 PM19:30

A Night of City Poems and City Songs w/ Josh Feit, Emily Westman & Annie Jantzer

At a double-bill evening of city planning poetry & city-themed pop songs, veteran local politics reporter-turned-government-speechwriter Josh Feit will read from his latest collection of poems, trading sets with jazz club duo Emily Westman (piano) and Annie J (torch-song vocals) at the Cloud Room. 

Letting his cosmopolitan bias show, Feit's new batch of poems, The Subway Arts Movement, meditates on mass transit, multi-family housing, witchcraft sleeper cells, and other key tenets of the pro-city agenda. The collection doubles as a municipal policy brief on love & loss.

Westman and Annie J regularly gig as Sidecar, playing their repertoire of American songbook standards at Seattle haunts like Vito's and the Sorrento, and at downtown venues like the Triple Door. Teaming up with Feit, the pair will work out a set of power-pop gems that celebrate the romance of big cities.

Josh has put in a request for the Kinks' tube station treatise "Waterloo Sunset," but who knows. We'll be in their hands for the evening's jams.

RSVP for free here!

Fall AstroSalon with Stephanie Gailing

Want stellar insights into the key opportunities and challenges that the next few months offer us both personally and collectively?

Then join Stephanie Gailing, the Cloud Room’s astrologer-in-residence, for an AstroSalon in which we'll explore the astrological landscape of fall. In discussions that will inform and inspire you, you'll get tips, key dates, and wellness suggestions to confidently navigate and plan for this season.

In this AstroSalon, we'll explore the canvas of fall’s celestially inspired themes including:

  • Re-evaluating What We Value (Venus Retrograde)
  • Understanding the Depths of Truth (Jupiter shifting from Scorpio to Sagittarius)
  • Taking Responsibility for Our Feelings (North Node moving into Cancer)
  • Breakthroughs in Individual Freedom (Uranus re-entering Aries)
  • Rethinking Communication (Mercury Retrograde)
  • And much more…

To amplify your take-aways, you’ll also receive personalized reflections based upon your individual astrology chart, including insights on Venus Retrograde.

This AstroSalon will be a little different than ones in the past; for this limited attendance workshop, we will gather around the big farms at The Cloud Room so that we can more readily engage in dialogue to unearth a deeper level of understanding of what may be arising for us personally and collectively.

And as always, spirit master Jay Kuehner will craft a special cocktail that will align with the astrological energetics that we will explore.
