Community Calendar

Our Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

The Community Calendar also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501(c)(3) charity or political subdivision.
  • The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.

We encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.

Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event. If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.

NOTE:  approved events are typically posted to the Community Calendar within seven days of your submission.

Please submit requests at least 14 days before your event – listings read on-air are chosen at random, the week of the event.

Depth Workshop: Gratitude, Grief & Going Forth @ Full Circle Yoga
Dec 3 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Depth Workshop: Gratitude, Grief & Going Forth @ Full Circle Yoga |  |  |

Facilitated by Erin Geesaman Rabke, Somatic Naturalist and Embodiment Mentor

5 CEUs included for Utah Mental Health Professionals

The day will include guided embodiment, writing practice, a communal ritual, an opportunity to connect in small groups, a community circle, and of course, there will be gorgeous poetry woven throughout.

I deeply believe in the power of an intentional community coming together to practice movement and stillness, quiet and connection, inviting our love and gratitude, inviting the difficult guest of grief, and, having been tenderized by those wise guests, freshly visioning how we might bring our unique gifts to co-create the more beautiful world we wish to see manifest. As Francis Weller says, “This is the solitary work that we cannot do alone.”

What I won’t do in this gathering is stand in front of you and talk and talk and feed you a bunch of information as if I’m the expert on what you need.

What I will do is invite your fully embodied presence, the wisdom and the concerns, the blessings and the aches, the gratitudes and burdens, the hopes, dreads, visions, creative inspirations, and unique gifts to come more clearly into awareness so they can offer their wise guidance. You’ll have an opportunity to share in a supportive community where it will all be met with respect, care and encouragement.

We’ll take enlivening, fresh perspectives on what’s unfolding in our lives by seeing with new eyes, and we’ll invite clarity to emerge to guide us as we return to our life, renewed, embodied, and inspired to begin again, going forth at least half a shade braver.
