Forest walk - Carmel
Forest Bathing
January 12

Rip Van Winkle Open Space

1072 Congress Avenue

Pacific Grove
Spending quiet, contemplative time in the forest feels, in many ways, like coming home to a peaceful place inside the heart. The practice of shinrin-yoku (“Forest Bathing”) is a form of guided nature meditation, an “immersion” into the space of trees, plants and inhabitants of the forest.
In this practice, specific invitations are offered to cultivate a deep relationship with the natural world by engaging the senses while noticing the effects of this connection on the body, heart, and spirit. Research has shown this practice to be significantly beneficial for reducing stress, strengthening the immune system, inspiring creativity, and enhancing a sense of well-being.

Carmel' Sunset Center
**  Sunset Presents: An Evening with Branford Marsalis  **
January 12, 2019
Sunset Center
San Carlos Street at Ninth Avenue
Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning saxophonist and New Orleans native Branford Marsalis has jazz running through his veins. The sons of a jazz singer and music professor, Marsalis and his brothers have risen to the upper echelons of modern jazz due to their virtuosic playing and technique. In an astounding four decade career, the living legend has performed and recorded with the likes of Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Herbie Hancock. A musical chameleon, Marsalis is unafraid to defy and blend genres, making him a formidable performer in not only jazz, but classical and mainstream music. Revered for his glowing tone, subtle yet lush phrasing and witty phrasing, the muso and his band don't just play a song, but regularly raise the roof with cathartic flights of intense, visceral playing. Long may the King of the Reed reign!

Sunset Center Presents: Styx
January 16
Sunset Center
San Carlos Street at Ninth Avenue
The six men comprising Styx have committed to rocking the Paradise together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. Styx draws from over four decades of barnburning chart hits, joyous singalongs, and hard-driving deep cuts. Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a Styx set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor that is "The Grand Illusion" to the hunker-down fortitude of all that is the "Blue Collar Man," from the majestic spiritual love for a special "Lady" to the seething indictment of preening, primping pageantry for pageantry's sake of "Miss America," from an individual yearning for true connection as a "Man in the Wilderness" to a soul-deep quest to achieve what's at the heart of one's personal vision in "Crystal Ball," from the regal reach-for-the-stars bravado of "Come Sail Away" to the grainy all-in gallop of that rugged "Renegade" who had it made, the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one's mind and body in their signature sound.
The news is out: The Esprit de Styx is alive and well, and now it's time to see for yourself. Welcome to the Grand Evolution!

9th Annual Whalefest Monterey
January 26-27
Fisherman’s Wharf
Each year, Whalefest Monterey celebrates the migration of the gray whales, and benefits the many local and national marine organizations that build awareness about the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary which educate, inspire, and empower the public to protect it.

Among the highlights will be a Symposium with lectures and documentaries related to ocean and marine life conservation, musical performances, and many educational displays by participating organizations. Thousands of attendees are expected again this year that range from local families and school children who want to learn more about our maritime environment to visitors from near and far who want to explore the annual whale migration.

Whale watchers come from around the world to view hundreds of whales, orcas, dolphins and pelicans who continue to feast on a “krill and anchovy buffet” in the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Throughout the year, this Whale Watching Capital of the World offers sightings of 15 species of whales, 10 species of dolphins, 2 species of porpoise, 6 species of pinnipeds and 1 species of Fissiped (sea otter).

Weather permitting, whale watching tours, fishing, sailing and glass bottom boats will be operating from the Wharf (many at discounted rates), and Wharf restaurants will be serving lunch and dinner. Wharf shops will also be featuring marine-themed merchandise. Read more about this event.
