PLAYING OF THE CHAKRA BOWLS WITH JEFF FISHER
On the second Wednesday at 7 p.m.
The beautifully lit crystal bowls and the purity of their vibrations, combine to create a perfect atmosphere for meditation and energy balancing.
WOMEN’S SACRED FIRE CEREMONY
On the second Thursday at 7 p.m
Diane Winn will lead us in an evening of chanting, drumming and sharing as women gather to support one another. This sacred fire for women is from the Cherokee tradition as taught by Momfeather Erickson. The coming together of feminine energy and spiritual insights makes this a wonderful event. Some of us honor the Cherokee tradition by wearing a skirt but this is optional.
Become empowered by your personal power animals! We’ll discuss their various roles as totems, teachers, messengers, and their place as guides in your life. Join us on a drum-assisted journey! We will be journeying for 25 minutes. Bring a blindfold and a small pillow (neither are required) to block out the physical and explore the non-physical shamanic worlds. We will be using a CD for the drumming. Discussion and sharing will be done by the group.
Keep alert for announcements of the next Kirtan

READING THE GOSPEL OF SRI RAMAKRISHNA
On Tuesday. November 29th from 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Live and on Zoom
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.
