Soothing the Spirit: Wellness Through Mindful Practices and Yoga

A Fundraising Journey of Wellness by Dr. Clifton Der Bing.

The Hume Center was pleased to be the beneficiary of this fundraising event focusing on wellness. As an alumn of our training program, Dr. Clifton Der Bing decided to create an event to support the clients of our Fremont office. He found that many clients could not attend their appointments due to inadequate funding for transportation.  In response, Clifton decided to share his passion for mind, body and spiritual wellness with others while raising funds for clients for this non-profit community mental health agency.

On Saturday, October 27, 2012 at Yoga Springs Studio in Milpitas, he led the participants on a journey of wellness through a fun and interactive sharing on mindful practices followed by an intense 90 min heated Vinyasa Flow group yoga practice. The Hume Center sincerely thanks him for creating this event to benefit The Hume Center, as he is an example of how we benefit from our ever growing network of alumni of our training program.

Trapped in a Rumor Improv

Director Joe Saam and his talented improv troupe supported The Hume Center with not one oe two but three evenings of hysterical improvisation. Trapped in a Rumor Improv has been entertaining audiences with their distinctive fast-paced, funny, and high energy style of improv. Their scenes are unrehearsed and unpredictable while their clever performers work together to create a live theatre experience that is never the same twice. They are in residence at Danville's historic Village Theatre and Walnut Creek's Lesher Theatre, and have also been seen at the Alameda County Fair or as part of Emeryville's Summer Performance Series.

Since 2009, Trapped in a Rumor Improv has allowed staff from The Hume Center to perform on stage with them in a few scenes as they donated half of each show's proceeds to The Hume Center. This talented group of improvisors donates a large portion of their proceeds to different charities each month. Please visit their website and consider attending one of their shows, as you will no doubt leave sore from laughing throughout the show.
