Dark Raven Anniversary
José Figueroa’s resumé is the stuff of classic kung fu: studying under
a Chinese master who spoke Mandarin and broke bones; competing on an international
stage far removed from Western rules and protections; preaching non-violence to Harlem
street kids. He’s been an educator, journalist, author, actor and fight choreographer
– and now, the founder of his own school, the St. Paul-based Dark Raven Studios,
which promotes fitness, self-defense, confidence and holistic wellness to students
of all levels and ages through its specialty, Chen-style T’ai chi. Dark Raven Studios,
987 Selby Ave., celebrates its first year anniversary from 3-7 p.m. Saturday, Nov.
18, with a full day of free introductory classes. Guest presenters will be Emily
Graves (Kundalini Yoga & Thai Massage), Michelle Loken (Goddess Warrior program
for women, and Girl Power for girls), and Joseph Tucker (Fit Ball full-body workout).

>Group or private classes are available seven days a week at Dark Raven Studios.
Workshop Offers Alternatives to Overspending
If the pressures of spending and consuming are getting to you, you may find some
peace of mind by attending a workshop called "Living Simply: The Practice of
Moderation," offered by the Benedictine Center in Maplewood, Minn. The program,
taking place from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7, is led by Nancy Anderson, a United Church
of Christ pastor and a Benedictine oblate. As part of the Center’s policy to make
enrichment opportunities financially accessible to everyone, the cost for attending
this workshop is a freewill offering. Anderson will discuss the pressures to "buy"
in a consumer society that implies things will make us happy. Her workshop highlights
spiritual traditions that promote a life of moderation and simplicity and the freedom
that follows. In the 1990s, Anderson helped form dozens of Living Simply groups that
met weekly throughout the Twin Cities. To register online, go to www.stpaulsmonastery.org
