Indianapolis City Market Catacombs Tours 2019

Sat, May 18, 2019 10:00 AM - Sat, May 18, 2019 10:30 AM @ Indianapolis City Market

Indianapolis City Market and Indiana Landmarks stage tours of an unusual site usually hidden from public view. Our guided tour of the Catacombs shows you a Roman-looking expanse of brick arches beneath the outdoor Whistler Plaza of City Market.

The Catacombs qualify as both a ruin and a redevelopment opportunity. They’re what remains of Tomlinson Hall, an imposing building whose main hall seated 3,500 people. Dietrich Bohlen designed the hall in 1886 to complement his earlier work at City Market. He also designed Indiana Landmarks’ Morris-Butler House. Tomlinson burned in January 1958, turning Market Street into an icy lake as firefighters battled the blaze. The city took down the remains later that year but left the vast basement of brick arches intact. Our Catacombs don’t have bones or crypts, but feature scores of brick barrel-vaulted arches from Tomlinson Hall.

Tours last approximately 30 minutes and depart from Whistler Plaza, the west plaza of City Market, 222 E. Market Street, Indianapolis. The tour check-in may be relocated inside the West Wing, depending on the weather.

Partnership Negotiation: How to Be an Agent of Cultural Change Without Resorting to Domination Tactics

Thu, May 16, 2019 2:00 PM - Thu, May 16, 2019 3:30 PM @ https://centerforpartnership.org/featured/may16webinar/

As agents of personal, business, and social change, many of us understand that we cannot use dominator tactics to create the partnership world we want. However our best intentions to operate with the mindsets and behaviors of partnership can be challenged when we attempt to solve problems or negotiate new agreements with people who come to the table with diverse points of view and power-over tactics.

Join Riane Eisler and Karen S. Walch on Thursday, May 16 for “Partnership Negotiation: How to Be an Agent of Cultural Change Without Resorting to Domination Tactics”, an interactive online dialog on how Quantum negotiation practices, based on neuroscience research, can help us be more effective and more integrated as agents of positive change.

As change agents, we need principles and practices that can help us dismantle the coercive models of domination and rise above outdated negotiation strategies that rely on power-over or win-lose models. In this lively, interactive online event, Riane Eisler, president of the Center for Partnership Studies and Karen S. Walch, Co-creator of Quantum Negotiation Certification programs come together to explore how neuroscience-based Quantum Partnership principles can strengthen our daily personal and professional actions of social change.

Can’t make the live session? No worries— this webinar will be recorded and all registrants will receive the full session link + Resource packet.

FAQ

➸WHAT IS MEDICINE TRIBE? CAN I JOIN?

The Medicine Tribe is a collective of like-minded individuals who believe in the power of love and healing, who care for planet Earth, who wish to be the change, and who were brought together by the love of conscious music! Everyone is welcome!

➸GATE HOURS

The gate will be closed at 9 pm each night to ensure safety. No entry into the event will be allowed after 9 pm. DRIVE SLOW when approaching the gate, the road is curvy at the gate entry and on a hill! No one will be allowed to enter without an admission donation and this can be done in advance or at the gate. Be sure to bring proof of your online donation if contributed in advance.

➸WHY MONETARY DONATION? WHY FOOD DONATION?

The Gathering of the Tribe will be held at Sage Valley a non-profit and a family home property. Admission and kitchen donation are required for entry to ensure we are all contributing to the collective.100% of the donations will go back into creating the most magical Gathering we can now and in the future, as well as furthering charitable projects for Sage Valley. Hosting a gathering of this magnitude takes resources and funding. Our goal is to provide as much as we can and do it in a sustainable way. Donations can be made online and at the gate. If you find the suggested minimum donation unaffordable, there will be VOLUNTEER opportunities so that you may give back through service rather than monetary giving. We also encourage creative alternative donations for admission. A list of acceptable donation items can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1lXlLmt3BiOfK6FckOlQ8j5zSouwGEaDCURkqN_Mzivs/edit?usp=sharing IMPORTANT NOTE: Everyone entering the event grounds will need a donation or volunteer position. Regardless of weather, changes to your schedule, personal choices, sickness, family emergencies or any other reason, all ONLINE DONATIONS ARE FINAL, 100% NON-REFUNDABLE & NON-RETURNABLE. By donating you understand & agree to all the information provided on the donation/ticket website. Tickets are however transferable & you are encouraged to gift your ticket if circumstances arise where you cannot make the event. See the sections about Volunteer Opportunities and Donation on the FAQs for more information.

➸DONATION

This event requires a MINIMUM sliding scale admission donation of $33 per person. While that entry fee will help make this event happen, any additional donations are joyously WELCOMED! We want to make this gathering as beautiful and healing as possible, but we need your help! Even if you cannot attend the event, you may still donate through the ticket website. If you find yourself in a position of abundance and feel called to share with the Tribe, we will put those funds to good use! In addition, if you wish to sponsor a particular project with materials or monetary contributions so you can directly see the results of your generosity, we will be forever grateful! Here are some projects needing funding: building more/better footbridges for trails, building onto the medicine wheel sacred fire, canopies or booth for gate entry, better solar lighting for gate entry, providing eco-friendly craft materials for kid village, feeding the masses with clean vegan whole foods, building a permanent workshop space, building a family table, building solar showers, roofing the kitchen.

Registration details for volunteer positions will be provided soon!

➸CAMPING, RVs & BUSES

This is a PRIMATIVE camping event with NO HOOKUPS or electric available. Sage Valley intends to remain off grid. There will be several camping areas designed to meet everyone’s needs and to create an intimate environment. There will be limited car camping available in some pasture areas for people who need or prefer that. There will be a family camping section next to the kid village. There will also be forest camping, but that will require gear to be hiked in. RVs and Buses will be allowed in the car camping sections. Please be aware that this is farm pasture terrain.

➸VENDORS

Come one and come all vending! We encourage vending of your DIY and homemade crafts, art, services, foods, and more! If you are interested in vending, please register here so that we may plan the space accordingly: https://goo.gl/forms/91LO5NUaKot6VVLs2 We do ask for a $10 vendor donation to reserve a spot. Vending space is first come, first serve.

➸SECURITY & SAFETY

This is primarily a self-regulated event where Tribe members are expected to speak out and stand up for what is right. Don’t be a jerk, bring good vibes, and always remember that LOVE is the answer. However, appointed Peace Keepers will be available throughout the event to ensure everyone’s safety. In this Tribe, we take care of each other and strive to create a SAFE SPACE for all! Please be sure to respect each other and listen.

➸HANDICAP ACCESSIBILITY

We will do everything we can to make this event accessible. There will be parking within walking distance from the main event area. However, the grounds are not designed for handicap accessibility. If you have any special needs to be considered, please reach out to the event organizers so that we may try our best to accommodate you. NOTE: The event grounds are typical of Indiana farm terrain. Trails & foot paths are often curvy, rough, grassy & hard to maneuver for some. Therefore we do not consider this land to be accessible for all.

➸LEAVE-NO-TRACE

This is a LEAVE-NO-TRACE event! It’s simple: leave the place you visit the same or better than you found it. Pack it in and pack it out. This property is an actual family farm where people live, treat it the way you would want others to treat your own home. If you see others not honoring the LEAVE-NO-TRACE motto take some time to explain to them why it’s important & nicely ask them to pick up after themselves. Recycle bins will be available, please be sure to use them! We ask that all trash brought onto the land is also carried off of the land. Trash removal costs us money, uses resources, energy, and time. Attendees found disrupting the natural beauty of the event farm will be removed from the grounds without refund, we are serious here folks! LOVE MAMMA EARTH!

➸EARTH FRIENDLY

Only biodegradable and earth friendly soaps, cleaners, and chemicals should be used at Sage Valley. Let us all be kind to the delicate eco-systems around us. Harmful chemicals can leach into the water systems surrounding us and create a ripple effect with a big impact.

➸SMOKING and TOBACCO USE

Cigarette butts should be properly disposed of and never left on the ground. Smoking should be done away from others and outside of any sacred spaces or family spaces. Ceremonial tobacco use is respectfully permitted within sacred spaces.

➸SACRED FIRE

The main sacred fire should be honored, cared for, and enjoyed with respect. Entry into this space should be mindful. Offerings to the fire are encouraged and permitted items include tobacco or other organic materials. Please do not cook at this fire or burn trash in it- there is a fire in the dining area that can accommodate these needs.

➸PETS

Sage Valley is not responsible for the care and well-being of pets. Pets will be allowed, but please be responsible. Take care of your pets, keep them safe, and don’t bring aggressive dogs. There are farm animals on the property, DO NOT allow pets to disturb the animals who call Sage Valley home. Pets must be up to date on veterinary care, leashed, and cared for at all times.

➸FAMILY AND KIDS

This gathering and Sage Valley is a very family and kid friendly event. There will be a family camping section and Kid Village will have many activities for children. Children age 15 and younger require no admission donation!

Next Economy MBA: Interactive Webinar Q & A

Wed, May 15, 2019 11:00 AM - Wed, May 15, 2019 12:00 PM @ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/next-economy-mba-interactive-webinar-q-a-tickets-59241226102?utm_source=LIFT+Updates+%2B+Resources&utm_campaign=a13cfd1742-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_09_18_04_30_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_ba0898ed69-a13cfd1742-1256138425

Are you a concerned citizen with a bold world-changing idea? Do you have a friend/family member wanting to align their work or money with their values?

Join a FREE video webinar with the LIFT Economy team to answer all your questions about our upcoming Cohort #3 of our Next Economy MBA program! So far – nearly 60 people have gone through or are enrolled in the Next Economy MBA program – building the pool of visionaries who are boldly and radically redefining the way our economy works.

Entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs often want knowledge about the fundamentals of business, but the content taught in the vast majority of MBA programs is based on outdated principles that were developed during the industrial revolution and oriented toward the outcome of producing functional mid-level managers of large multinational corporations. MBA programs are also incredibly expensive, costing roughly $100k-$150k for a two-year degree. This ultimately exacerbates the cycle of wealth extraction and forces aspiring entrepreneurs to become reliant on high-salary positions to pay down their debt.

The LIFT team has spent nine years working with more than 150 social enterprises that are building the Next Economy. We have identified patterns that we feel that every entrepreneur should know in order to be prepared for the future of business.

What is the Next Economy? Cumulatively, the LIFT team has decades of experience bringing innovative ideas from idea-stage into action in the next economy. You’ll walk away from this call with clarity about what the next economy is comprised of, along with ideas of the top 1-3 next steps to bring your idea to fruition.
