PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10.

Why Birds Matter: Conserving the World’s Birds and Their Ecosystem Services @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Jan 26 @ 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Why Birds Matter: Conserving the World’s Birds and Their Ecosystem Services @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

Birds are the best known major group of organism. They provide critical ecological functions and ecosystem services, ranging from creating soil to shaping primate behavior. Global analyses of the world first avian ecology database, with 1.5 million data points covering all bird species, provide answers to important questions in avian macroecology, conservation biology and biogeography. Global change, in particular climate change, habitat loss and introduced species are increasingly threatening new avian taxa that have been considered common and safe from extinction until recently. We identified many extinction-prone and understudied avian taxa that should be targeted by intensive research and conservation efforts. There is an urgent need to understand the ecological consequences of bird declines, which will lead to consequent declines in ecosystem services. With nearly 11,000 species, birds are one of the most diverse groups of ecosystem service providers. Birds are conspicuous in many habitats, occur worldwide, and are ecologically diverse. Birds’ ecological roles and ecosystem services are critical to the health of many ecosystems and to human well-being. Birds consume pests, pollinate flowers, disperse seeds, scavenge carrion, cycle nutrients, and modify the environment in ways that benefit other species. Yet, the ecological importance of birds and the economic value of their services are not widely appreciated. Studying birds’ ecological functions and ecosystem services enables us to understand the environmental consequences, of bird declines and extinctions, for ecosystems and for the people that benefit from birds’ services. We need to do more to communicate these findings to the public and policy makers, thereby increasing public support for the conservation of birds, their habitats, and birds’ ecosystem services.

Larry Gerlach – Friends of the Library Lecture @ J. Willard Marriott Library
Jan 29 @ 3:00 pm
Larry Gerlach - Friends of the Library Lecture @ J. Willard Marriott Library |  |  |

Larry Gerlach is professor emeritus of history at the University of Utah. His numerous books and articles include  Blazing Crosses in Zion: The Ku Klux Klan in Utah and The Men in Blue: Conversations With Umpires. He will be discussing Alma Richards: Olympian, which was published through the University of Utah Press here at the J. Willard Marriott Library.
Alma Richards, as an unsung high school student, surprisingly set an Olympic record for the high jump in the 1912 Stockholm Olympics. He was the only native Utahn and member of the LDS church to win an Olympic gold medal in the twentieth century. Richards for two decades reigned as America’s most accomplished multiple-event track and field athlete, winning national titles in five different events.
More than a century has passed since Alma Richards won an Olympic gold medal, yet this story about man and sport—the drive to excel, victory as validation of hard work, the quest for public recognition and, ultimately, the achievement of self-identity and self-satisfaction—still resonates today.

Jung Society of Utah Presents “The Shadow Dance of the Feminine and Masculine” @ Salt Air Room at the University of Utah
Mar 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Jung Society of Utah Presents "The Shadow Dance of the Feminine and Masculine" @ Salt Air Room at the University of Utah |  |  |

“Except for the point, the still point, there would be no dance, and there is only the dance.“
– T.S. Eliot

Carl Jung believed that the culmination of the Soul’s journey is the integration of opposites within the psyche: feminine/masculine; conscious/unconscious; divine/human. Each of us, regardless of our gender identity or sexual preference, must grapple with the inner dance of Feminine and Masculine energies in our search for wholeness and the well-lived life.

This movement from opposition to paradox is no easy task. The journey is often littered with inner and outer conflicts, positive and negative projections, longings, and disappointments, as we find our way out of the madness, confusion, and darkness of opposing values, desires, ideals and possibilities, into the evolutionary leap of the Sacred Inner Marriage.

Join us for an evening of myth, dreaming, storytelling, poetry, lecture and dialogue as we explore the creative, transformative, and visionary potential of the Conscious Feminine and Masculine within each of us. We will investigate how the Feminine and Masculine archetypes, in both their positive and negative aspects, inform our sense of meaning, purpose and wholeness, the quality of our relationships, and our ability to tend to the “soul of the world” in the face of seemingly insurmountable global dilemmas.

Theresa Holleran L.C.S.W is a Depth Psychotherapist, teacher, and facilitator with over 40 years experience. She has taught graduate courses in Transpersonal Psychology, Eco-psychology, and Process Work, and has co-created national and international retreats and sacred journeys in both urban and wilderness settings on themes of embodied healing and transformation, suffering, wisdom and resilience, and the Sacred Inner Marriage. She currently works with individuals, relationships, groups and communities in her private group practice at Mountain Lotus Counseling in Salt Lake City. Her work is predicated on knowing that each person has an inherent destiny that can be revealed through the exploration of the unconscious and its effects on consciousness and that personal individuation is directly tied to the fate of our planet.

Date: March 9, 2017
Time: 7pm-9pm with mingling before and after.
Please become a member to support the Jung Society events.
