Opening minds, one heart at a time: Join bereaved fathers Rami Elhanan and Bassam Aramin as they share their stories of loss and their unique choice of reconciliation amidst the Arab Israeli conflict. Participate in a discussion on the human side of the conflict and why relationship building, mutual understanding of the “other side,” and framework for reconciliation are necessary for any sustainable peace agreement. Rami and Bassam are former co-Directors of The Parents Circle Families Forum, a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families.

We’re excited to announce the launch of the “Virtually Creative” after-school program.
The “Virtually Creative” after school program is an extension of our onsite programming that takes place at John Ruhrah Elementary/ Middle and Tench Tilghman Elementary/ Middle. In an effort to continue supporting our schools we are providing afterschool programming online. Each day, students receive homework help and hangout time to connect with friends. They will also have virtual Restorative Practice circles every Friday. Below is a detailed breakdown of the Virtually Creative schedule.
A live online venue for artists to perform & support living expenses, and for the community to connect through live music despite COVID cancellations.
Tune in to concerts by professional musicians and music students on Facebook or Instagram and support artists through suggested online “admission fees” directly contributed to artists.
Here you will find FREE video tutorials, crafts, fitness, games and activities for all ages. Click any of the sections below to explore all resources. We want to make sure you stay active and have fun while at home. The Virtual Rec is growing daily, so check back often. #stayhomeheroes

Dear Educators and Parents,
I am putting together a community poetry project for kids. Adults can play along too.
For several years, I have run an annual poetry writing project. For one month, participants receive a daily writing prompt related to a theme. (In 2014 we wrote in response to Pantone paint colors; in 2019 the theme was Food). The goal is to write and share a newly drafted poem with the group every day. It’s a way of practicing writing with others.
Beginning March 23rd, our online schedule will reflect the live streaming options so that you can practice from home. Thank you for your support of your teachers and Baltimore Yoga Village at this time. We are pleased to serve you in this way.
