I am thrilled to announce an opportunity for us to come together in person outdoors (masked and physically distanced, of course) for some song, dance and mindfulness!
I'll be offering the "Charity Kahn Family Music Hour" at the first-ever Outer Sunset Farmers Market & Mercantile weekly on Sundays at 10am! (The market runs from 9am-3pm.)
The awesome organizers will have clear markings on the ground so kids/families are supported in remaining distanced. Wear your masks and get ready to rock out to your favorite JAM songs! Requests encouraged, of course!
Here's more about the event, from amazing visionary and organizer Angie Pettit-Taylor and her team:
"In collaboration with Supervisor Gordon Mar, The Office of Economic and Workforce Development and People of Parkside Sunset, we are launching The Outer Sunset Farmers Market & Mercantile on Sunday July 5th 9-3 on 37th Ave between Ortega and Pacheco. This will be a weekly year round open air market with a blend of farmers, producers, food artisans, food vendors, makers, merchants, artists, organizations, performing artists and engaging activities... all within strict compliance of City health orders and directives. It is a large street so everyone will have plenty of space, face coverings are required, several handwashing stations on hand, clearly marked distancing cues on the ground, frequent cleaning of surfaces and plenty of signage as well as market ambassadors to help keep folks on track. Our highest priority is that of safety for all while hopefully contributing to our community’s well-being." More info.
I am so excited to see you there!!!!!

The 4PM class rotates to a different day each week and has a theme. This week's class is on Wed July 1 and the theme is..."Mindfulness + Celebration!"

Join me for a class that includes some extra mindfulness practice, and songs like "Pebble Meditation", "Lovingkindness", "Grateful", "Get Your Booty Out of Bed (Time to Wake Up!)", "Turn Around (This Is the Happiest Place I've Found)" and other mindfulness-inspiring JAMband tunes.

Mindfulness for exceptional Times: Showing up for Ourselves and Our WorlD
5-week class series
Mondays, 8/3 - 8/31, 7:30-8:45pm
offered in partnership with recess collective*, via zoom
In this five-week online course, through guided practice, teachings offered, journaling, break-out groups, and sharing/discussion/Q&A, we’ll study several aspects of mindfulness, including:
Review of the Basics + Daily Practice Support
Mindfulness-Based Self-Care Practices
Lovingkindness and Compassion Practice for Self and All
Gratitude and Joy as Antidotes to Despair/Overwhelm
Showing up Mindfully for Our World
From the insecurity of a global pandemic to the incredible uprisings against injustice to the ever-present dangers of climate change and broken leadership, this is undeniably a huge and unwieldy time to be alive.
Will we disappear underneath our overwhelm or show up for ourselves and each other with love, clarity and purpose?
Mindfulness practice provides us with the tools necessary to stay present for all that is arising in both our external and internal realities, and to do the work to create discernment, spaciousness, kindness and understanding in a world that desperately needs us to wake up.
Participants will be supported in their practice with mid-week emails from Charity containing tips and inspiration, a meditation-buddy support system, and one 40-minute one-on-one session with Charity to be scheduled at your convenience.
It is wonderful, and necessary, to be in community for these practices and teachings.
Audience: Adults + Teens
$125 (per household)

Like so many artists and teachers, my ability to work has shifted dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I've moved my JAM and meditation programs online in an effort to provide continuity of programming, and I'm offering all these programs on a donation basis so the barrier to entry is less, as I know many are in difficult financial position these days.
I will need financial support in order to be able to continue offering programs. If you have the means, any donation you can offer helps immensely.
Ways to donate:
Please reach out if you'd like to donate but neither of these methods works for you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Please reach out with any questions!
It takes a village to raise children, so let's stay in touch.
We'll send you updates about upcoming classes, concerts, community events and music releases. Welcome to the community!
