Daryl Davis is a blues musician, but he also has what some might call an interesting hobby. For the past 30 years Davis, a black man, has spent time befriending members of the Ku Klux Klan.

He says once the friendship blossoms, the Klansmen realize that their hate may be misguided. Since Davis started talking with these members, he says 200 Klansmen have given up their robes. When that happens, Davis collects the robes and keeps them in his home as a reminder of the dent he has made in racism by simply sitting down and having dinner with people.

His film, Accidental Courtesy, captures Daryl's search for answers to the question, "How can you hate me when you don't know me?"

This one day workshop will explore the energetic field that encases your body. This energy, called bio-energy or chi, is responsible for life as it fulfills your need for subtle energy. The vortexes existing in this energetic field are called chakras. The chakras act as points of connection between your physical and non-physical bodies, enabling energies to flow from one of these vehicles of manifestation to the other. They are the means by which we absorb energy from and give energy to the environment, and exchange energy with others; therefore, they form the core system through which we sustain our energy levels, vitality and health. Considering that our chakras are the energetic ‘devices’ through which we exchange and maintain our bioenergetic level and that the energies of our chakras can vary in quality, to have awareness of what is going on in your chakras is vital to your wellbeing. The last part of the class will focus on aligning your energies with positive intentions during an ancient ceremony known as “Despacho”.

We’re seeking entrepreneurs for Winneshiek Idea House!

Are you a budding entrepreneur in Winneshiek County looking for community support and encouragement? Or are you an established entrepreneur wanting to take your business to the next level? If you consider your enterprise ethical, sustainable and local, we encourage you to apply to be a featured entrepreneur at the first ever Winneshiek Idea House.

Winneshiek Idea House is a local entrepreneur forum modeled after the “Community of Dragons” event in Totnes, UK. It’s a supportive, community-based version of the popular TV show “Shark Tank.” Instead of facing five “sharks,” entrepreneurs pitch ideas to a community of “investors”—their community. Community members may “invest” loans or gifts of money, use of space/facility, expertise, neighborliness, and more to support their favorite local enterprises. Think of it as crowdfunding in real time.

This event will take place on March 24, 2018 at the Elks Lodge in Decorah. To apply or learn more about the event, visit decorahnow.com/idea-house. Entrepreneur applications are due January 1, 2018.
