Joppa Mountain Pottery | 1479 Joppa Mountain Rd, Rutledge, Tennessee 37861

Wanna join us? Great - give us a call 865-230-0471 to reserve your spot or send us a message!

Join us for an evening of art, friendship and firing it up Raku style! 

Raku firing is one of the most natural techniques that you can encounter in pottery. Raku generally refers to a type of low-firing process that was inspired by traditional Japanese raku firing. Western-style raku usually involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials. Once the materials ignite, the containers are closed. This produces an intense reduction atmosphere which affects the colors of glazes and clay bodies. A lovely fact about raku is that its name literally translates as 'happiness in the accident'.

Yoga and Self-Care Practices for Chronic Pain & Illness - CLAIBORNE COUNTY

  Well Being Retreat Center   557 Narrows Road, Tazewell, Tennessee 37879

Well Being Retreat Center

557 Narrows Road, Tazewell, Tennessee 37879

Along with very gentle yoga movements, breathing techniques, meditation, anti inflammatory diets, and doable lifestyle changes, including giving yourself permission to say no, and how to ask for help.

Specific areas of pain will include, fibromyalgia, lower back pain, arthritis, headaches. These are not all inclusive. As you might can tell I am excited about these researched findings and I am thrilled to share them. Especially in the light of changing laws on opoids. I am talking to a lot of people who are afraid and happy at the same time about these changes, they just need an alternate way to handle the pain.

Each day, Debbie will lead you on a personal adventure on your mat through yoga. Maybe you have tried other forms of exercise and healing, but feel something is missing. Yoga may be your answer.

There will be plenty of down time to relax and enjoy the 160 acres of rural Tennessee land and the 2 1/2 miles of Powell River frontage.

This retreat is suitable for everyone and no yoga experience is necessary

The End of Seeking - CLAIBORNE COUNTY

  Well Being Retreat Center   557 Narrows Road, Tazewell, Tennessee 37879  Well Being Retreat Center is offering a three-night retreat entitled “The End of Seeking” led by Don Oakley, the author of "It's Time to Wake Up Now: The Top Ten Myths that Can Hijack Spiritual Awakening," a five star rated book on Amazon, and by Patty Bottari, a Director of Well Being Foundation and longtime employee and student of both Adyashanti and Byron Katie.  Spiritual awakening is often spoken of as the finish line - the end goal of the journey. It is true that it's the end of seeking (because you will have found what you've been looking for). But it's also the beginning of a new, truly spiritual journey. It's not the last step - it's the first. Until we find out who we are - not as a philosophy, but as our own self-discovery - we are often plagued by a nagging sense of phoniness. Life can often feel difficult. And then...one day...if we've been diligent and open and honest and sincere, Springtime arrives. Ahhhhh, the relief!  This 3-Night retreat will begin with supper on Thursday July 12th and will end after lunch on Sunday July 15th.

The goal of Sundown Rundown is simple: give back. The event is a shared pathway for students, faculty, staff, and community members to rally together for a common cause. Sponsored by the LMU-DCOM Physician Assistant Program Class of 2019, this year's event once again benefits Servolution Health Services. Servolution allows students an opportunity to learn rural medicine while benefitting community members in need. In its first two years, Sundown Rundown hosted an average of 200 race participants, vendors, and sponsors and raised and average of $14,500 for the charity. We hope to continue this tradition.

One Evening in May: An Appalachian Ballad and Story Swap - CLAIBORNE COUNTY

  Lincoln Memorial University    6965 Cumberland Gap Pkwy, Harrogate, Tennessee 37752

Lincoln Memorial University

6965 Cumberland Gap Pkwy, Harrogate, Tennessee 37752

Due to an overwhelming amount of interest in One Evening in May, the University and I have agreed to move it to a larger location. This event will now be held in Duke Hall on the campus of LMU. It will still take place May 12 at 6pm. This decision was made to insure the comfort and safety of all in attendance. I would like to thank the Cumberland Gap Wedding Chapel for their initial support in this project, as well as LMU Arts in the Gap for sponsoring the event. The ballad singers are glad to see the enthusiasm for traditional songs in the area, and we look forward to this performance in just a few short weeks!

In 1917, British folklorist Cecil Sharp came to the Appalachian mountains in search of American folk traditions. What he found was a "community in which singing was as common and almost as universal a practice as breathing." The repertoires of these singers included English and Scottish ballads, “love songs" as the singers called them, that had been passed down from the early European settlers of the region. His published collection, English Folk Songs from the Southern Appalachians, includes multiple versions of 122 distinct ballads. Several of these were collected on the campus of LMU.

Today, this tradition continues with young singers from across the Appalachian region. Join Claiborne County native Ian Kirkpatrick May 12 at 6pm as he welcomes old friends and new acquaintances to perform together for the first time in Cumberland Gap at the Cumberland Gap Wedding Chapel. Tickets are $10, or $5 for LMU students. Money will be collected at the door. This event is sponsored by LMU Arts in the Gap. All proceeds go directly to the artists.
