Join Hoosier Action every Monday evening for a statewide video call to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic, and how we can ensure that all Hoosiers get the care and resources we need during this crisis. Now is the time for us to unite across our differences and make policy choices that help every-day people — not the richest 1% and a handful of corporations. As individuals, we can wash our hands, avoid unnecessary travel and check in on our friends and neighbors. As a united force, we can demand our local, state and national governments do everything possible to protect everyone’s health, no exceptions.

Mon, Apr 06, 2020 8:00 AM - Mon, Apr 06, 2020 10:00 PM @ Harrison Center

We’re so sad we can’t welcome you into our building for First Friday, so we commissioned artists to install window displays before they headed home to shelter-in-place. Next time you are out exercising or walking your dog, swing by the Harrison Center to see the window displays and celebrate the tradition of First Friday in a different way. They are sure to put a smile on your face.

Walk, bike, or even drive by, and check out the displays. The installation is open day and night, though the lights are spectacular at night.

(If you choose to walk by, please follow all social distance guidelines, remain at least 6 feet apart, and don’t touch the glass please!)

Get your farm fix in the off-season. Since 2008, the Indy Winter Farmers Market has provided Downtown residents with a direct source of local produce and goods during the winter months.

The Farmers Market starts on Saturday, November 9, 2019, and runs every Saturday through April 25, 2020, from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the Circle City Industrial Complex (1125 E Brookside Ave). The Indy Winter Farmers Market is one of the longest-running winter markets in the state of Indiana.

We believe everyone in our community should have access to local and fresh foods. Our market continues to be the only farmers market in the state to offer triple-match dollars for SNAP (The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), ensuring the market is an accessible place to shop for all members of the community.

The triple-match SNAP allows shoppers to use, $20 of their benefits to get an additional $40, ending up with a total of $60 to spend at the market.

At the market, you will find some of the best in local produce farmers, artisan food producers, including sustainably raised meats and dairy products, unique baked goods, preserved and fermented foods, and much more. Bring the whole family and enjoy breakfast in the cafe area, listen to live music, and let your kiddies play in the new and improved Lil’ Sprouts area.

Sat, Apr 04, 2020 8:30 AM - Sat, Apr 04, 2020 10:30 AM @ Indianapolis Zen Center

It’s time to come inside for the year. We’ll have a fire and music. Probably chai, too.

*********
8:30am Yoga
9:40am Break
9:40-ish am Meditation
10:10am Mindful Listening Dyads
10:20am Discussion

Stay for whatever parts you want.

Hi Everyone:

Bring your mat, come as you are, and join me at the Indianapolis Zen Center at 37th and Washington Blvd.

I lead a supportive, light-hearted practice of exploration. Through postures, you will learn how to hear what your body is telling you, how to find Interesting Sensation, and how breathing interacts with movement. Weight balance, tension, compression, stretch, cause and effect, and what you’re thinking and feeling at any given moment become clear.

Every (type of) body is welcome. You don’t need to be a gymnast to get something out of this.

Yes, the class is free. I’m just doing my small part to hold space for people to come together as friends, learn to get out of our heads and see the wisdom right in front of our faces.

Please consider making a donation to the Indianapolis Zen Center or to Second Helpings.

About Me:

My name is Tony Wiederhold.

My life’s work is helping people to find inner-kindness and healing through facilitating both Inner Work and Outer Work: contemplative practices and group volunteer service.

My teaching is informed by what I’ve learned from years of meditation practice and working through my own stuff while going to a job Monday through Friday, living in the world, and encountering a lot of hurt people, injustice, and cruelty.

You can find me at the Indianapolis Zen Center (www.indyzen.org) most Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings for 6:45am meditation.

What I’ve learned from practicing:

1) We need each other and we need to stop hurting each other.
2) Hurt people hurt people. Cruelty comes from pain and propagates. Recognizing pain and creating conditions for wounds to heal in yourself and others is the way to stop this.
3) Kindness heals both the giver and the receiver.
4) Working for a more just, less cruel world is totally possible and totally worth doing.
5) There’s plenty of work to be done and it’s a lot of fun to work together to make the world better for everyone. I feel that working to create circumstances for people to heal and thrive is the whole point of living.

See you soon.
Tony

Amidst the twin health and economic crises of COVID-19, we are seeing remarkable community mobilizations and the renewal of solidarity economy practices that have sustained us for generations. Strong mutual aid networks are emerging to nimbly navigate communications, logistics, and collective care. On every city block and in every small town, neighbors are supporting and caring for one another.

We’re also seeing local and state governments take steps to freeze evictions, ensure paid sick leave, house people without homes, free the incarcerated, and ban utility shut-offs to support communities during this crisis. These are important steps, and they are not enough yet.

We must keep organizing our communities and pushing our governments to ensure that we navigate these crises in ways that move us further from disaster capitalism and closer to a just COVID-19 recovery. What does this organizing look like? What are the policies that will get us there?

Join New Economy Coalition, Climate Justice Alliance, and partners for a participatory discussion to envision how we can transition the current changes to our system into the long-term, transformative changes our communities need. The conversation will be facilitated by Peoples Hub, an interactive online movement building school that is training groups like yours in communities where they live.

We’ll discuss current COVID-19 related legislation and community support practices, and discuss the long-term transformation that communities will continue to fight for to ensure community control of our economic system.
