Event Details

It's true that life is full of ups and downs. The key to happiness lies in part, in how we respond rather than react to what comes up. When we can respond with a loving heart as the background to all that we do, life is experienced as an open and flowing river.

Participants will learn a simple loving kindness or compassion meditation that will plant the seeds for transformation of life from one of suffering to one of greater ease and happiness no matter what arises.

Participants will also leave with a few tricks in their compassion tool kit, that they can put to use immediately in their every day lives at work and play.


We recommend showing up for your class early. 5 minutes before the start of class, we'll give away any open spots to walk-ins.




Q. What time should I show up for my class?


A. We recommend you get there at least 10 minutes in advance. 5 minutes before the start of class, we will release open spaces to walk-ins.


Q. Do you accept walk-ins?


Sometimes. If the class is not sold out, come on by! If the class is sold out, try your luck at the information table. We will release open slots 5 minutes before the start of class.


Q. What if I signed up for a class and now I can’t go?


A. That’s too bad. You can always cancel your registration for the class on Eventbrite. This frees up class spots so that others can enjoy the class. Also, please double check that you are not signed up for classes that meet at the same time.


Q. Do I need a paper ticket?


A. Nope. We’ll have your name on our list if you’ve registered through Eventbrite.


Q. Do you accept donations?


A. Yes! Donations are always welcome. We are a registered non-profit in the state of Illinois and completely powered by volunteers. All donations are applied to putting on a great community festival.


Q. How can I help?


A. First of all you should attend, spread the word and have a great time. But if you want to get more involved there are lots of ways to help this year and in future years. You can teach, volunteer, take pictures, donate money so we can keep running the event, lend us a projector or a few yoga mats, etc. Fill out volunteer form.


Q. Are classes family friendly?


A. Most of the classes are aimed at grown-ups, but many families attend Learnapalooza classes together. Classes with specific age restrictions or those geared specifically toward children are noted. We leave it up to the families to decide those classes that their children are likely to enjoy. Please note: children must be accompanied by a guardian at all times.


Q. Is the venue wheelchair accessible.


A. Next Door is accessible. Unfortunately, Rast Ballet, Pendulum Space, and Double Trip Press are not wheelchair accessible.


Q. I have other questions.


A. Email us!
