Pastors and counselors will discover how to use this form of therapy. This cutting-edge research may be applied to oneself after a workshop.

About New Decision Therapy
New Decision Therapy (http://www.newdecisiontherapy.news) is a quantum, conscious-memory recall process of forgiveness, with guidance toward profound growth and acceptance, for emotional healing of past traumas. By looking in a mirror, profound changes can happen. Heal with help by Master Teacher, Michael G. Phillips.

Renowned Artist Jack Amoroso Presents A Lifetime Of Artistry 11/16/17


Renowned Artist Jack Amoroso Presents A Lifetime Of Artistry
Thursday November 16, 2017, 6:30PM-9:00PM
Grove Gallery & Interiors
2884 Bird Ave
Coconut Grove, FL
Kindly RSVP to: gpineres@creativasgroup.com

Art lovers are welcomed to attend a very special opening reception: “A Lifetime of Artistry” next Thursday November 16, 2017 from 6:30PM-9:00PM featuring works by the highly recognized and acclaimed Jack Amoroso. The event will take place at Grove Gallery & Interiors located at 2884 Bird Ave, Coconut Grove.
A recent experience inspired this very special event. Amoroso came home to see smoke rising from the house he shared with Patricia, his wife. The fire, which destroyed many of his life’s work, while devastating, is the beginning of a new chapter. He has found a new studio for his paintbrushes, and is back to creating. Amoroso will literally rise from the ashes to display his works.

Jack Amoroso first came from Boston to South Florida at the age of eighteen, and thought it was a “rather groovy place; a place where a young artist could survive.” Two years later he made his move to Coconut Grove permanent, and began his long and storied career as a many faceted creative.

Amoroso is a veritable legend of the Grove art scene. A founder of the Coconut Grove Arts Festival, Director of the Playhouse Gallery, and widely exhibited throughout his seventy plus year career, he is highly accredited worldwide.

Dubbed “The Last of the Bohemians,” and coming in to his professional own during the 1960s and 70s, he falls in line with other great masters of modernism. Like Duchamps, he turns the most common of objects into art. Like Matisse, Amoroso is a master of color. And like his friend and mentor Picasso, Amoroso utilizes almost every medium, and has perfected the Cubist’s perspective.

Event guests will be treated to music, amazing art, and signature martinis courtesy of Findlandia Vodka, and specially selected wines and lite bites by Happy Wine. Special desserts will be presented by Craving Sweets.
The event will feature a special presentation with the City of Miami and City of Miami Fire Department.
Amoroso is the embodiment of le joie de vivre, and this exhibit represents: A Lifetime of Artistry.
“A Lifetime of Artistry” opening will take place

Help Raise Funds for Hurricane Matthew Relief
Local businesses come together to organize a bake sale where all funds will go to help the women and girls of Haiti

This year South Florida residents were very lucky that Hurricane Matthew missed them. After seeing the devastation in Haiti, Daniella Biffi, Managing Director and Founder of Pollen Theory- a local PR firm, decided to bring together local businesses and members of the community to donate their products and services to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Matthew at a local bake sale.

Every last penny donated will go to Heart to Heart International, who’s PowrServ program helps women and girls by donating ”Women’s Hygiene Kits.” This organization is recognized for its dedication to strengthening communities by improving health access, humanitarian development and administering crisis relief worldwide. This charity ranks amongst the highest on the Charity Navigator website.

Bake Sale Information:

Why: Women and girls are particularly vulnerable in the developing world when there’s a crisis situation like a natural disaster. We wanted to focus our efforts in helping them deal with Hurricane Matthew’s devastation with dignity.

What: All proceeds will go to the PowrServ program, who puts together the women hygiene kits. Each kit includes: 2 pairs of underwear, 2 reusable menstrual pads, washbowl, 2 bars of soap, 4 condoms, a whistle, crank flashlight, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, Band-Aids, hand towel, wash cloth, nail clippers and the following educational materials: Menstrual Health, Stay Safe Use a Condom, Pad Use/Care, Stay Healthy Wash Your Hands.

The kits cost $20 each and are invaluable to these girls. Our goal is to raise enough money to provide 100 kits to the women and girls of Haiti.

For those who won’t be able to attend the bake sale and still want to make a donation please visit: https://www.gofundme.com/hurricane-relief-for-girls-in-haiti-2tzb2x8

Local Businesses come together! A special thank you to our bake sale sponsors: Simple Fly Creative, Bunnie Cakes, Contenti Cupcakes, Miam Cafe, Mmmm Cupcakes, Lola the Baker, Miami Printing, Elizabeth from the Coconut Grove Farmer’s Market, Diego Texera Photography, and our volunteer amateur bakers :)

When we talk about civic engagement, problem solving, and the future of Miami, we hear the same two questions: where are the young people and who is engaging the next generation of leaders?

To help answer those questions, the New Leaders Council (NLC) Miami invites you to an evening of cocktails and celebration on June 9 from 6 PM to 10 PM at the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove. Meet the 2016 fellows at our graduation and fundraiser and help us build a more civically engaged Miami!

NLC Miami is one of the premier chapters of a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to recruit, train, promote, and network the next generation of progressive social and political entrepreneurs. We bring a diverse group of rising stars together for a leadership institute that develops their practical skills, focuses their impact work goals, and connects them with local leaders in politics, government, business, education, the arts and sciences, and the nonprofit sector.

With your support, we can continue to plant the seeds for dynamic collaborations among people and organizations that would never have come together but for NLC. We want you to get to know our fellows (past and present) and we know you will be energized by the experience. It takes a village, and Miami is ours. Join us, celebrate, and help us build a community we are all a part of!

Tickets and sponsorship packages are available at a variety of levels. All tickets include open bar during the event (21+)! Take advantage of early bird pricing and purchase your tickets at this link: http://miami.newleaderscouncil.org/cmaddennewleaderscouncilorg/2016_fellows_fundraiser

Terra Group and The Related Group, the development team bringing the Park Grove community to the Coconut Grove neighborhood come 2018, gave back to its future community by sponsoring the kids at Coconut Grove Cares to an evening of fun and sports—over 100 of them.

The pre-construction development, which also happens to be the future home of a key figure from the Miami Heat, rented two buses and purchased over 100 tickets to bring the kids of Coconut Cares to watch the city’s most beloved team.

David Martin, President and Co-founder of Terra Group and Cathy Strafaci, Director of Sales at Park Grove, gave the kids their tickets to the game at the Barnyard at Coconut Grove Cares, who, in turn, presented them with a big thank you card for taking them to the game.

The buses then shuttled the kids off to American Airlines Arena for the Heat game and returned them back to the Barnyard at Coconut Grove Cares following for their parents to then bring them home.

This is the first in a series of efforts for the future residency, Park Grove, to give back to its community.

Miami, FL – Hot Yoga House Miami will host a weekend of free yoga classes Jan 2-3 at its Coconut Grove and Doral locations to celebrate the studio name changing (from Bikram Hot Yoga Miami) and the expansion of its class offerings. In addition to the classic 90-minute, 26-posture Bikram yoga class, Hot Yoga House will offer a 1-hour version of that class as well as Power Flow, Power Hour, Yin and meditation classes. Full schedule of class times available at www.miamibikram.com/schedules.

“Our students have expressed a need to be able to fit the wonderful physical and mental benefits of yoga into their daily schedules,” said Will Thomas, Hot Yoga House studio director. “We are responding with 1-hour class options and a variety of temperatures and styles to help open the body and mind in additional ways. And since we no longer offer only Bikram yoga we thought it appropriate to update our name to reflect the welcoming community we and our students have built at the studios.”

Photographs of The Coconut Grove Seafood Festival by Mr Q 305

South Florida celebrated seafood, waterfront living and the start of the stone crab season by way of The Coconut Grove Seafood Festival at Peacock Park. For the third year in a row, event organizers brought together an array of seafood vendors offering bushels of shrimp, oysters, crawfish, lobster, stone crab, fish and clams prepared in a variety of ways.

The well known Casablanca Fish Market overflowed with fish from around the world that folks were able to select, purchase and take home after they had their fill at the festival. The Kitchen Lab featured cooking demos by popular South Florida restaurants.

The event was very family oriented. Children played inside the inflatable pirate village in the Family Fun Zone. There was also VIP Island for those who preferred a more exclusive experience.

As if all this wasn’t enough, the afternoon had a constant stream of live music including calypso, steel drum, island escapism and reggae. The Festival also featured several nautically themed exhibitors showcasing art, jewelry and home decor.

The folks at SWARM have definitely put together another winner!…We can’t wait to be back next year!
