VIVEKANANDA'S LECTURES WITH JERRY JANKIEWICZ
We are off to a good start with a lively discussion last week. Our next reading of the lectures will be Sunday, March 1, 2015 from 2 - 4 p.m. We welcome anyone who is interested in pursuing this study- you do not have to be a part of the original group. If any one new would like to join, we will provide you with the background readings to insure you are acquainted with the material.
Jerry Jankiewicz will be facilitating the group (with support of Indra) and if you have any questions feel free to contact him: e-mail email@example.com or you could contact Joyce as well. Swamaji's writings are guaranteed to change your thinking processes and outlook on the world.
"We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be can be produced by our present actions, so we have to know how to act!"
Quote from Vivekananda

- SOUND CIRCLE WITH KATHY KEASEY
On Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 7 p.m.
The purpose of the Sound Circle group is to provide a gathering place where people can vocally express themselves in a non-judgmental, uninhibited way. Toning is the production of long, sustained pitches using vowel sounds and select words. Healing harmonics and overtones are created by the blending of vocal timbres and the volume of the sound created by the participants. Toning circles are going strong around the country and the world. Toning is ages old. Sound has been used in the past and is being used more and more as a vehicle for healing and general well-being. The power of toning backed by positive intention is beneficial not only to the participants but has far-reaching impact.
There is no religious affiliation and even though it may be termed a spiritual pursuit, it is by no means a solemn event. There can be some tremendously exuberant energy created. Each toning session is different according to the persons involved. You do not need to be a "singer." Everybody can benefit by letting the breath move through the vocal cords and listening to his/her own, unique sound. Even if you think you are tone deaf, you can feel safe to try toning in a circle of sound, adding to the group sound as you feel more and more comfortable. It's not about who can tone the loudest or longest. It's about being in the present moment with the healing power of sound.
Kathy Keasey has decades of experience with choirs, vocal coaching and accompanying. Her interest in the healing vibration of sound led her to create the first area Sound Circle while she was Music Director at Unity Church of Peace. Kathy has a Bachelor of Music from Oberlin College, Master of Music from the University of Illinois, and a degree from IUSB as a licensed public school music teacher. She taught high school choirs in the area for 6 years and most recently accompanied the South Bend Chamber Singers, and directed their ad hoc Children's Choir. She is semi-retired, continuing her love of teaching piano and vocal coaching. Love Donation

- DREAMWORK GROUP WITH ALMA SPENCER
The dreamwork group will meet again on Sunday, March 15th from 2 - 4 p.m..
Carl Jung believed dreams were direct communications from the unconscious to the conscious, and therefore an opportunity for personal growth. If you're not familiar with dream interpretation, the process is quite simple: learn to remember your dreams and develop your intuition. But since it's often much easier to interpret someone else's dream than your own, we'll share our dreams in a supportive environment to benefit from each others' intuitive insights.
If you have any recent dreams to share, please type each one up and give it a title. Then bring your written dreams for the group to work on.

- READING THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA
On the 4th Tuesday or Wednesday of the month from 7 - 8:30 p.m.
Andrew Harvey once said that if he could take only one book to a deserted island "The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna" would be his choice. The book is written in dialogue form detailing the conversations Ramakrishna had with people that came to see him. It records his moods, his songs, his humor and gives one a sense of what it would be like to be in the presence of a Divine Incarnation. Using wonderful analogies, Ramakrishna discusses some of the most profound spiritual topics and his own spiritual experiences. We will stop often for discussion and sharing. I will have extra copies for everyone.
- SUNDAY CIRCLE OF SILENCE
On Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon. Do you feel stressed and unable to find time to just Be? Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings. According to the great mystic Meister Eckhart: "Wherever this Word (of God) is to be heard, it must occur in stillness and Silence. We cannot be of greater service to this Word than through stillness and silence. There we can hear and understand it correctly." Sermon 18. We will begin the hour with 20 minutes of silent meditation. We will then do a 5 minute silent walking meditation followed by another 20 minutes of silence. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
On most Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. The practice is done with a DVD and involves very basic movements. We have been using the Spring Forest QiGong method and we all find that it really does enhance your energy. There have been times when we all felt exhausted when we came and left feeling fine.
