Phat Kat's Essential Detroit Tour
We'll meet at the Fisher Building on West Grand Boulevard for a tour of what I personally consider to be the Detroit Essentials. As we drive from stop to stop, I'll point out Detroit architecture and significant cultural places, and share details and trivia only a native Detroiter would know--and talk about changes I've seen in the city through the years. From the Fisher Building, we will travel to the Motown Museum, the Packard Plant, the Heidelberg Project, Eastern Market, Belle Isle, Joe Louis monument, Michigan Central Station, Corktown, and the Guardian Building. We'll end up back at the Fisher Building, where you can peruse the goods at The Pure Detroit store and show off your honorary Detroiter status when you return home. I love to answer questions about what Detroit was like growing up in the '70s and '80s and about my musical career--especially the early days when I worked with such Detroit legends as the late great producer J. Dilla.

Local Meditation Night
Join local meditators to learn about the essential concepts of meditation. We have a group discussion to build working models and lay a foundation for understanding why it works, then dig in and explore the practice together in a guided session. This is a ~15-minute lesson in the mechanics of meditation, followed by a guided meditation. After mapping out our understanding of the science, we will chart our course and jump together into "the river of change," applying what we've learned in an extended seated session for 45-60 minutes. We also make space for 5-10 minutes of integrated rest and assimilation at the very end. We are aiming in each session to relax the heart and awaken the brain, thereby creating a sense of balance and harmony between our emotional center and intellectual center. We close with an integrated resting period to assimilate the effects of our meditation and carry them with us into the evening.
