Meditation Experience in Vietnam
BY TOM CHRISTIE
@ VOL 9
ON OCT 01, 2016
We know you're stressed, but there are better ways to deal with that than killing your boss/client or burning down your school. Meditation is one of them and to help you get the ball rolling, we have invited a very special guest to Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 9.
Meet Tom Christie, whose meditation practise and the quest for peace and zen has taken him on several retreats in places you probably haven't heard of, both in Vietnam and elsewhere. He's going to talk about how he got into meditation practise.
So take a deep breath, exhale... and see you on Saturday October 1st, 2016.

Colorado Heritage Journey
BY JORDAN WILLIAMS
@ VOL 6
ON NOV 08, 2018
In the summer of 2018, Jordan was able to hike over 400 miles of the Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango with his wife and our dog, Aska. Besides just the majesty of the mountains and wilderness, Jordan also got to experience Colorado's special history and heritage as we made stops in several towns including Twin Lakes, Salida, and Silverton. Additionally, the connections Jordan made provided my adventure with a unique perspective that I want to share with others through our initiative entitled "Colorado Heritage Journey" (https://coheritagejourney.com/)
