On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Wake up! Wake up! The weekend is here. Saturday Soul Stretch will get us out of bed and back into our full-spectrum humanity. Join facilitator Laura Weber at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) to de-stress, reconnect and sink deeply into the present moment. A hot breakfast starts the day, followed by gentle tai chi movement and a sitting meditation to foster deep relaxation. To relax and engage, sip a cup of aromatic tea and enter into a whole new realm of exploration with a different spiritual modality each month, such as dream work, journaling, mandalas, labyrinth, breath-exercise, sounding, centering prayer, poetry for the soul, singing bowl meditation or drumming. To cap off the morning’s spiritual workout, enjoy a mindfulness walk out in the beauty of Prairiewoods’ 70 acres of prairie grasses, trees, streams and gardens, with only the owls, squirrels, turkeys and deer as your companion-guides. Finally, return to the Spirituality Center for a scrumptious luncheon, and leave happy and refreshed. The cost is $50 and includes breakfast and lunch. (You may choose to pay an additional $25 to stay through the afternoon with dinner, or $55 to stay overnight with Sunday breakfast.)
