HELP WITH THE SACRED WATERS GARDENS
That time of year again…we are looking for help with the gardens around the house. Watering, weeding, deadheading, etc. are all important tasks that keep the place looking beautiful. You can choose to manage a single garden, join with a friend and do it together or offer to help the gardening crew. Small easy to manage garden areas are available or challenge yourself and take on one of the bigger ones. Every little bit helps. So many of you enjoy the benefits of having a place like Sacred Waters; now you have an opportunity to give back a little. If gardening isn’t your “thing” how about offering to sweep the front porch once a week? Any time you can offer is helpful for any job. If you are interested, please contact mafilchka@gmail.com”
Thank you.

Upcoming Events

 AMAZING BENEFITS OF CBD OIL WITH DALLIS ANDREWS 
On Tuesday, October 16th at 7 p.m.
Cannabidiol is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments.
Better known as CBD, it is one of the 104 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis or marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa.
etrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. However, unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive.
This quality makes CBD an appealing option for those who are looking for relief from pain and other symptoms without the mind-altering effects of marijuana or certain pharmaceutical drugs. It is legal in Indiana.

DREAMWORK GROUP WITH ALMA SPENCER
On the first Thrusday at 7 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. Love Donation

READING THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA
On the 4th Tuesday 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 jhug@michiana.org.
 
QIGONG
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.
