Socialist Night School: Bernie vs. the Capitalist State – Hosted by East Bay Democratic Socialists of America
Jan 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Socialist Night School: Bernie vs. the Capitalist State - Hosted by East Bay Democratic Socialists of America

Bernie Sanders has a real shot at becoming the country’s first-ever democratic socialist president, opening up an incredibly exciting opportunity for the Left. But as history has shown, left-wing governments in liberal capitalist countries face a number of daunting obstacles to enacting change.

What sort of challenges and opportunities would a Bernie Sanders administration face? How might opponents inside and outside of government resist Bernie’s agenda? Tackling these questions requires answering broader questions about the state’s relation to society: What is the state, and how does the capitalist state function? What role does the state have to play in a transition to socialism?

Join East Bay DSA’s Socialist Night School on Tuesday, January 21 to discuss these questions, in the second of a special four-part series on Bernie Sanders, capitalism, and democratic socialism.

Yoga and Muffins: Yoga, Wellness Screening with Muffins & Warm Elixirs – Hosted by Hikari Chiropractic
Jan 25 @ 9:30 am – 10:45 am
Yoga and Muffins: Yoga, Wellness Screening with Muffins & Warm Elixirs - Hosted by Hikari Chiropractic
Join Anne Gregory Yoga & Drs. Sara Vargas and Jill Schneider.

Our missions are so perfectly aligned:

*to empower people to reclaim their own inner healer + shine and share their unique gifts and light with the world*

We’ll start with a gentle yoga practice and yoga nidra (led by Anne) and afterwards you’ll have the opportunity to get a free neuro-spinal exam with Sara or Jill.

The exam will be a brief computerized test that looks at the health and integrity of one part of your nervous system and gives valuable insight into the parts of our nervous system that we can’t actually feel! It takes about 8 minutes and after Sara and Jill will discuss with you about your health concerns and answer questions. They will be offering an opportunity to schedule a free initial consultation at their office and exams will only be $50 (normally $190).

Yes, there will be muffins and we’ll also have hot nourishing drinks from the The Well Cafe right next to the East Bay Community space.

There is so much power in connecting, collaborating and supporting other women’s work in the healing arts, and we are super excited and honored to co-host this event together. We hope you will join us.

We all come together and connect in a space defined by the beauty and challenges of being attracted to more than – or fewer than – one gender.

BiCon features two days of community presentations, panels, discussions and performances on topics related to identity, gender, race, mental health, sexuality, relationships, history, disability and more! It’s space to build community and celebrate our similarities and differences while throwing a great party.

Welcome to Erratic Dance! It’s a dance party where you can be free to express yourself, erratically. Get up, get down, fall on the floor. Weirdos and clowns are WELCOME. Non-consensual behavior is NOT WELCOME. No Creepers.

Sliding scale $15-$25 to cover the space.

Awesome musicians/ DJs providing the beats –

7:30-8:30PM

playing an epic 2.5 hour set!!!
https://soundcloud.com/clavae

This is NOT Erotic Dance. This is NOT Ecstatic Dance. This is Erratic Dance.

Rules of Erratic Dance:
1. Dance – It’s called “Erratic Dance,” NOT “Erratic Stand Around and Talk to Your Friend in the Middle of the Dance Floor.”

2. Ask First – Ask before you dance with someone. Maybe if they don’t look at you, don’t even ask. Some people don’t even want to be asked. If you don’t know, let them be. Some people want to dance alone.

3. Share the Space – Yes. Your dance moves are DOPE. Leave room for other people’s DOPE dance moves. Don’t let your dance thing take over the space.

Thanks for helping to make this a great event!
