The Tsali Trail Races has something for everyone. Even if you’ve never raced on trails before, Tsali is a great place to make it your first! With gently rolling hills, well groomed trails, and picturesque views of Lake Fontana, Tsali is a great event to start off your new year! We’re heading into the 5th year under my direction of the event, and it’s one I always look forward to!

LOLLIPOPS: THE BREMEN TOWN MUSICIANS
Jan 20 @ 10:00 am

10:00 am: Hendricks Library, Simpsonville
11:30 am: Hughes Main Library, Greenville

Featuring the GSO Wind Quintet

ADMISSION IS FREE!

Needing a change of pace, a donkey heads to Bremen from his farm home in search of the life of a musician.  On his journey, he encounters a dog, a cat, and a rooster.  They become unlikely friends, and the pack travels together to Bremen to join the Town Band.  Their expedition creates lovely friendships as they face unpredictable obstacles together.  The GSO Wind Quintet, together with a reading by SCCT Principal Teaching Artist Traysie Amick, will bring these diverse friends to life.

Lollipops concerts introduce children to classical music and the instruments of the orchestra through interactive concerts presented by members of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.  During each concert, chamber ensembles accompany a storybook reading.  And, of course, audience members receive a lollipop at the end of each performance!

Lollipops concerts are appropriate for children ages 2 to 7, although all children and adults are welcome.  Programs last approximately 30 minutes.  Reservations are not required and admission is free.

Lollipops is sponsored by BMW Manufacturing Co.

Take It to the Next Level: Sankalpa, Yin & Tapas with Liz
Jan 20 @ 2:00 pm

Take It to the Next Level: Sankalpa, Yin & Tapas with Liz

January 20, 2018

This will be the first class in our once a month series- Take It to the Next Level.  Join Liz for a one of a kind event to kick off your commitment to yoga as a practice of self-transformation.  Sankalpa is the Sanskrit word for intention.  Yin relates to the spirit of quiet, internal listening, and the state of being.  Tapas is a Sanskrit word that loosely translated means “burning zeal.”  In this class you will create a personal intention and we will move through practice based on this intention.  The Yin and Tapas practices are very similar in that you will hold poses (both standing and on the floor) for longer periods of time (think 5 minutes or more).  Some of these times will feel uncomfortable. Can you stay through the inevitable discomfort?  Can you learn to respond versus react?  Can you bake this intention into your cells through the duration of this class?  This is a unique practice that Liz only offers once per year.  Don’t miss out on the fun!

time: 2-4pm

cost: $20 (free to Inspired Path Members)

unnatural history
Jan 20 @ 5:00 pm

unnatural history

The works in Unnatural History are portals backwards or forwards (or sometimes both at once) in geologic time, offering visions from before, after, and during the tenancy of humankind. Dioramas of cast resin depicting bizarre plants and animate slime suggest a post-human period wherein nature reclaims the planet. Artificial geodes made of oil paint, latex, foam, and soil transport viewers into a distant future where industrial waste has become fossil evidence of human activity. Abstract wall sculptures use motor and crude oil as raw material in the depiction of the vast, intricate industrial landscapes of the near future, while wooden mosaics made of materials salvaged from hurricane-affected cities and reconstructed glass objects found on beaches suggest a possible utopian remedy to decline, decay, and disintegration. Overall, the exhibition underscores and illustrates the many ways in which the technological processes of mass mining, manufacturing, resource extraction, and large-scale industrial agriculture have altered not only the present, but also the future history of our planet.
