Poetry Slam  
It's the longest-running slam in Omaha, often featuring 
some of the best performance poets in the nation.
Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the Slam • Sign up BEFORE 7:30; signup is limited


What is a Poetry Slam? It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment,
sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment.
Poets read, then judges chosen from the audience flash Olympic-style scoring (ranging from 1 to 10) based on both the writing and performance of the poem.  This goes on for 3 rounds to determine somebody with a high score that we can declare as the winner. In truth, everyone who adds to the evening should be considered a winner, but since we only have one Golden Monkey trophy, we have to figure out some way to give it out.

8 Healing Sounds with QiGong Movement
Workshop with Sarah Brandt
Sound • Vibration • Movement • Breath • Visualization
Please Please RSVP • Call OM 402-345-5078
The practice of the 8 Healing Sounds & coordinated movements combine: sound, vibration, movement, breath, and visualization for balancing the mind & body.
In the Taoist tradition, this practice enhances one’s overall well-being and works directly upon particular organs, emotions and energy channels in the body. 

These Ancient Taoist Healing practices 
will enable you to transform the effects of emotions and daily stress through sound and movement. There is an old saying, “Our ‘issues’ reflect in our tissues.” Strong emotions 
and high stress require extra energy and have an effect on the body’s immunity and organs, often accelerating the aging process. This class will review the 
five major organs and their associated emotions, colors, sounds and elements—in accordance with the Chinese 5 Element Theory. The 8 Healing Sounds & Movements
is a practice for self-healing and rejuvenation. Discover how to integrate sound with movement to maintain a life of wellness and harmony!

Sarah Brandt is a direct disciple of Master Chen and is a 26th generation lineage holder of the Taoist Dragon Gate Branch. Through Master Chen she has received teachings and training in Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Energy Healing and I Ching Numerology.  Sarah offers group and individual instruction for Qi Gong, Tai Chi, meditation, 
yoga, physical conditioning, and self-healing methods.
