Boulder Insider Weekly Events – October 12-16
Hello and welcome to the first writing of the Insider Weekly Events Column! My name is Savannah Kruger and I want to introduce you to the hidden magic of Boulder. My intention for this column is to help you easily and joyously connect with the Boulder Community. Whether you’ve lived in Boulder your entire life or you’ve just arrived, I hope to invite you to compelling gatherings that will help you have incredible experiences and build incredible relationships. This column won’t be focusing on the typical goings-on, but rather the smaller, more intimate, important events that people in town are putting on to share their light with others. I hope to see you at some of these gatherings and become your friend! So, let’s get down to it!

Integral Center – 2805 Broadway St. Boulder
$10 drop in donation, Free to Integral Center Members
Get support and challenge from a group of men dedicated to greatness in this weekly open men’s group. The Drop-in Men’s Circle is a weekly men’s group led by experienced facilitators as a resource for the men in the Boulder community. Magic that happens when men get together explicitly in support of one another. In men’s group we can lay down the armor and get real with the challenges of life and how we are working with them. This is an excellent opportunity for any man who is new to men’s group or simply wants another opportunity to cultivate a life less ordinary in the company of brothers. Invite any man you think would benefit from this experience. I’m not a man, so you won’t see me here, but I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of attending!

Long Form Improv Meetup
Villa Del Prado – 635 Mohawk Drive, Boulder
The Boulder Improv Collaborative meet weekly to practice the fine art of improvisation: listening, reacting, being in the moment, and character development. Amazing scenes and games emerge as a result. Different players lead play nights based on a theme they’ve created. This meeting will be a long form improvisation meaning that the players will be making up scenes as they go along, rather than relying on premises or themes. The BIC has a limited amount of spots open so RSVP soon! All levels of improv training are invited. Though this is not a class, side-coaching may be given by the leader if needed.

United Nations Association Discussion: Beijing + The Status of Women Today
Boulder Public Library – 1001 Arapahoe Ave Boulder
20 years ago the UN held the Fourth World Conference on Women where the Platform for Action for the advancement of women’s rights was produced. The Platform addressed critical areas for concern like Women and Health, Violence against Women, Women in Power, the Girl-child, and more. Today, on the 20th anniversary of the Beijing, the UN has created Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals and this meeting will be focusing on Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Leslie Wright, from the UN, Unicef, Zonta International, will lead a conversation about the history, or should we say herstory leading to this potent moment in time and discuss how we can empower all women and girls and achieve gender equality locally and globally. I’ll be attending and am really excited to engage in this discussion!
