John Holm: Retro Surf Impressionism, Bliss 101 Art Exhibition
Aug 30 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

John Holm: Retro Surf Impressionism 
On August 30, from 5-8pm Bliss 101 in Encinitas will be hosting an exhibition for Painter John Holm. 

Bliss 101 will be donating a percentage of sales from this exhibition to Surfrider Foundation San Diego County. 

“John Holm fell in love with the sea at a young age while living on the North Shore of Oahu where he enjoyed beachcombing and snorkeling. Since then, life has taken him to Monterey, Friday Harbor, and Madison Avenue. After time as a surfer and art student, to a stint as a Navy pilot and a forty-year career in advertising, Holm returned to Seattle. His coastal memories became the images that were reborn in the form of acrylic paintings he calls “Surfscapes”. John also creates the reclaimed wood frames that complement the beach themes. Paintings sold in San Diego, Kauai, and Oahu.”

Addressing the Climate Crisis Through Meditation and Action @ First Unitarian Universalist Church of San Diego
Sep 9 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Please join us for a night of meditation and community to find ways to address the climate emergency. It’s natural to feel much insecurity about our planet’s future when we see increasing evidence of the climate crisis. 
 

Do we wonder if individuals and communities working from this day forward have the power needed to enact significant change? And can mindful awareness empower us to find a place of refuge, nourishment and inner wisdom?

Through small group discussion and short meditations, we will explore our moral authority and power. Please join us. No meditation experience required.

RSVP Here!

This program is provided by the Social and Climate Justice Groups of InsightSD, The First Unitarian Universalist Church and SanDiego350.
