screech owl babies

They all need our help ~ Please be generous!

Your kind help means these animals receive care … and, when they’re ready, they can be released back to their wild homes, just like this Great Horned Owlet released in Orange last month:

 

Even if you can’t make it to class … stop by anyway!

HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
11 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

Enjoy hot apple cider and deeee-licious sweet and savory treats. (The Peaceful Hands Test Kitchen is up and running … ) And, because I have anticipated your next question — YES! Dr. Beier’s Cheesecake will be there, too!

Enter to win a PEACEFUL HANDS HOLIDAY BASKET, filled with some of my favorite things and a few other giveaway surprises, too!

Visit with The Wildlife Center’s Executive Vice President Randy Huwa and other Wildlife Center staff who will be there to thank you for your support and to tell you about the wild patients you have helped this year — from bear cubs to hummingbirds.

Take A Pic with a wild critter, because they’re coming to the Open House, too! Maybe a raptor, maybe a possum, maybe a turtle, maybe an owl. I can’t tell you which Wildlife Center “Wild Ambassadors” will be there, but I can tell you that they are looking forward to seeing you!

Bring a friend. You don’t have to do Yoga to come by. And, please let others know about this Open House — it’s a great way to introduce new folks to our Yoga studio and to the work of the Wildlife Center.

I hope you’ll stop by. (I can’t eat all these cookies by myself, you know … plus, I want to see you!)  

If you can’t make it, you can still help the animals — just drop off your gift at my massage or Yoga studio.

You’re Invited! Wildlife Center Owl Release At Montpelier On Tuesday, 10/17

The Wildlife Center of Virginia invites you to join them tomorrow — Tuesday, October 17 — at James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange. They’re releasing a young GREAT HORNED OWL back to the wild!

Great Horned Owl, Patient #17-0363 ~ The Star Of The Show

This owlet came to the Wildlife Center in April after falling from its nest. When the rescuer was unable to re-nest it, the owlet was brought to the Wildlife Center.

The Owlet, back in April. My, how it has grown!

Bright and feisty, the little owlet was eventually housed with an adult Great Horned Owl resident at the Wildlife Center who helped “raise” it by showing the owlet the ropes of hunting and life in the wild. The owlet’s healthy and ready to be free!

The owlet’s full Wildlife Center patient report is here.

There’s nothing like watching a wild animal get a second chance back in the wild.  It’s a special experience and will warm your heart. I’ll be there. I hope you will, too.

Here are the details:

The owlet will be released at James Madison’s Montpelier in Orange County on Tuesday, October 17 at 6:15 p.m.  The release is open to the public.

Please RSVP to lkegley@wildlifecenter.org just so the Center can keep track of attendees.

Enter through the main gate on Route 20 [Constitution Highway] and follow signs to the Visitor Center.

Any other questions, you can let me know: jackie@peacefulhands.com  I hope to see you!

Holiday Open House is Saturday, December 10 ~ Check Out The Special Guest List!

Peaceful Hands Yoga’s Morning Class & Open House to benefit the Wildlife Center of Virginia is this Saturday, December 10 and I have a wonderful surprise for you this year!

I hope you’ll stop by. (I can’t eat all these cookies by myself, you know … plus, I want to see you!)  

Here are just a couple of things the Peaceful Hands family has done to help support The Wildlife Center and its patients this year.

You gathered clover, garden greens, and acorns through our “Team Bunny” program, provided lots of brown paper bags for the daily feeding of the bear cubs, and saved an orphaned squirrel in our parking lot before the 4:30 class this summer. (That squirrel, by the way, made it through a-ok and just last week was released in Madison County at the Beier’s farm.)

Thank you, as always, for your boundless kindnesses.

I hope to see you!  The weather is going to be perfect. (But, I’ll come up with a backup plan, just in case.)

 

Team Bear: Beggin’ for Bags.

The Wildlife Center of Virginia needs a favor from their trusty Team Bunny/Team Bear helper-outers. (That’s us!)

bear

The Wildlife Center has admitted a record 28 bears this year and seven of them are currently living in a big outdoor bear enclosure.

Each day the bears consume fruits, veggies, dog food, and other treats.

dinnertime-for-bears

Yum for bears.

Here’s where we come in … the cubs’ meals are packaged for them in brown paper grocery bags that are tossed over the enclosure fence. (This helps ensure that the cubs don’t start to associate mealtime with people.)

mealtime-for-bears

The cubs tear into their grub and the bags decompose – no fuss, no muss.

mealtime-for-bears2

Mealtime is often followed by naptime — often falling asleep right in their food.

The Request: Can you spare a few brown paper grocery bags to help with the Center’s daily feeding?  (If the bags have paper handles on them – like the ones you get at Whole Foods and Trader Joes – that’s even better for tossing over the fence.)

Bring them to Yoga class this week or drop a few off at my massage studio in Madison.

It seems like a silly request, but it really will make the Center’s life easier …

For the latest update on the Center’s bear cubs click here.

And, here’s one of my favorite videos of the cubs exploring their new home in May.  They’re much bigger now. (Be sure to watch that little cub who’s so careful as he reaches his paw out into the straw.)

 

Thank you so much for being so generous, kind, and willing to help whenever the Center needs us.

“Team Bunny” Needs You!

dd5f8-bunny14

Garden Greens Are YUM!

It’s time to activate TEAM BUNNY for 2016!

During the last few years, “Team Bunny” – a dedicated group of the Peaceful Hands Yoga community – has been providing organic greens, clover, and dandelions to patients at the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

The Wildlife Center has come to us for help again this year.

It’s the Center’s annual spring influx of rabbits (many are tiny orphan bunnies) – they arrive at the Center every day, sometimes delivered in shoe boxes, sometimes wrapped in towels.

Last year, the Center cared for 320 cottontails. That’s a lot of bunnies … and each one needs to eat.

These patients don’t particularly like the regular “hospital fare” the Center provides. (And, really, who does like hospital food?) But, what baby bunnies and their friends DO love is snacking on dandelion greens and clover.

Would you be willing to donate a bag of dandelions and clover from your yard?

(Yes, really. I am asking for your garden weeds.)

Peaceful Hands Yoga students & massage clients have provided many, many, many pounds of natural greens to feed Wildlife Center patients. In recognition of this kindness, the Peaceful Hands’ family has been dubbed “Team Bunny.”

In addition to the rabbits, our greens also are used to feed other patients at the Center, including bear cubs and box turtles.

team bunny1 2015

One of the many Wildlife Center patients who enjoyed “Team Bunny” greens in 2015.

“Team Bunny rocks!  … Exposing them to the natural foods that they will eat in the wild is the best way to wean them from formula onto solid foods.  It also acclimates them to hiding in vegetation to protect them from predators.” ~ Dr. Kelli Knight, Assistant Director of Veterinary Services, Wildlife Center of Virginia

Join “TEAM BUNNY” by donating a bag — or 2 or 3 — of greens and help feed the bunnies!

Here’s how …

If you’re out in your yard, garden, or pasture (in untreated, pesticide- and chemical-free areas only, please) and you wander across some dandelions and/or clover, the Wildlife Center would love to have them! Fresh is better, of course, so if you’re coming to class or have a massage scheduled, pull them up in the morning sometime and bring them in with you. Or drop them off at my massage studio any time during the week.

Here’s what the Center can use:

  • Dandelions – especially the green leafy parts
  • Clover
  • Lettuce – dark green varieties
  • Kale, Collards, or other “Greens”

A little bag. A big bag. Every little bit helps.

The rabbits and others will need the bounty for many weeks to come. And, soon the goslings and ducklings will benefit from your donations as well.

And, a happy, eating rabbit is a healing rabbit (or duckling or bear cub or turtle), and that makes the job easier for the Center’s Vets and Rehabbers.

Email me with questions at jackie@peacefulhands.com.

In Yoga, the generous donation of time, service, and gifts to those in need is known as Seva.

Team Bunny is Seva in action.

Thank you for all you do to help the wildlife around us.

Yoga Up Your Holidays …

 

Santasana

Santasana.

(Hips over heels? Check. Shoulders over hips? Beard is in the way, but, umm, I guess so. Ears over shoulders? I have no idea.)

Too busy for your Yoga?  Don’t forget how Yoga can improve your energy, boost your immune system, and help you work through all the cookies and rich foods that come your way.

Here’s your Holiday Update at Peaceful Hands Yoga in Orange …

First … THANK YOU! Your kindness and generosity to the Wildlife Center of Virginia and our annual Yoga Class and Open House benefit was amazing!  Randy’s Outback was filled with supplies and food and donations after Saturday’s event. I know a few people would like to bring things this week (just drop off at Yoga class or at my massage studio) so I’ll have a grand total of what we raised for you next week. (Spoiler Alert: we raised more than ever this year!)

Your kindness makes my heart smile wide!  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

(And, additional thanks to Dr. Beier for the deee-licious cheesecake, Rod Sedwick for the yummy brownies and for loaning us the tables, Mark Ward for the music … “Heart of Gold” live in the Yoga studio on Saturday, how cool is that!, and Lacy Kegley at the Wildlife Center who made up special brochures just for our event!)

YOGA … Our Holiday Yoga session ends this week.  Classes are Monday and Wednesday at 4:30 and 6:00 p.m.  It’s a gentle class (I promise!) and will help balance your energy for the busy weeks ahead.

After that, Yoga classes will be on holiday break until New Year’s Eve.

MEDITATION … The second in our Holiday Meditation Practice series is this Sunday, December 20 at 4:00 p.m.  I hope you will join us, a little quiet does the mind, body, and heart good.  (No need to know “how” to meditate or to have been to the first practice to come to this one.)  For more info and the schedule click here.

STOCKING STUFFERS GALORE … I always have a few sweet stocking stuffers available at the Yoga and massage studios for little holiday gifts. Pure room/pillow mists, my own hand-blended Oil of Tranquility, beautiful hand-made ornaments (made by a Fair Trade cooperative of women in India from recycled cotton fabric), music, and more. Come early to class to find a nice gift for a friend … or for you!  (cash/check only, please.)

ornaments

NEW YEAR’S … We will have our annual morning classes on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day (9:30 a.m.) … and then the new 2016 session will begin on Monday, January 4.  More details on the new session — and how to get the New Year’s Eve and Day classes FREE — will be posted next week.

I hope to see you during these busy holidays.  Thank you for being part of the Peaceful Hands Family.  I wish you warmth and love and laughter during these precious days!

And, live music! Mark Ward, whom many of you know from the 4:30 Yoga class, will have his guitar with him on Saturday and he’s offered to fill our Open House with music. (Thank you, Mark!)

Randy will be there and will be delighted to tell you about the work of the Wildlife Center of Virginia … how your gifts make a difference … and to tell you about the many patients that they treat (so be sure to ask about the beaver and the bear cubs and the grebes!).

I hope you’ll stop by – this is also my way of saying “thank you” for all the kindness and support you’ve given me through the year.  And, bring a friend – the nicest way to introduce someone to Yoga is to show them our studio and what a nice “family” the Peaceful Hands community is!
