Don’t miss this opportunity to fill out your numerology chart in this excellent workshop. Your chart is a coded message reminding you of the plans that you had for this incarnation. It is divided into two sections comprised of various positions. The first group is called the name numbers, which are derived from the letters of your name. The name you were given at birth represents the truth of who you are in this incarnation and what you came to do.
The second group is called the birth numbers, and are calculated from your date of birth. Your birthday tells about the events that your higher self is creating so that you can realize your purpose here. These numbers talk about what is happening in your life, seemingly outside of your control.

In the Advanced Session you will be able to ask questions about you chart and questions in general about numerology.

October 30, 2019 7:00 p.m.  Please call to pre-register so we can gauge food: 574-277-0034.    

As we approach All Hallow’s Eve, the veil between the worlds thins and we are more easily able to connect to those who have gone before us into the next realm.  In the Native American tradition of Gebuyquay or Ghost Supper, this time is set aside for these suppers. Through drumming, chanting, story, prayer and food, we will create a sacred space to honor those who have passed on into the next world  If you have lost someone you wish to honor, you may bring a memento to share your story with us as we gather. In Native traditions, the drums and our ancestors are honored through a “drum feeding” ceremony. Please join us in giving honor to the Spirit of the Drum. You may bring your own personal drum for a feeding or help us honor the mother drums at Sacred Waters. At the end of the night the blessed plates of food made for the ancestors and the drums will be given to the animals outside.

Please bring some food items to share that will be edible the creatures that live at SW such as fruit, nuts, and breads.  Love donation.

DREAMWORK GROUP WITH ALMA SPENCER

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.
