relationships are easy for you and which ones are more challenging?  This

Square: The Year of ‘Irrational Exuberance’” with Judith Robert

Transiting
Jupiter and Neptune make a series of square aspects to one another from January
through September 2019.  Jupiter, the god
of expansive connections, and Neptune, the god of boundless imagination, can
create exciting new ways of imagining relationships and ideas as well
delusional fantasies of expansion. This class will discuss the meaning of this
square aspect for the collective.  Then
we will locate these transits in class charts and discuss the meaning of their
influence.

 

August 28, 2019 – “Solar Arcs: Reviewing
Significant Life Events” with Judith Robert

The Solar Arc Direction is a predictive method based
on the sun’s diurnal movement.
 One year for every day of the sun’s movement
is applied to all the planets in the natal chart; moving them forwards a day
for every year of one’s life.  Aspects
created by a directed
planet to the natal chart will act as a trigger for life events.  Learn this simple technique to review
significant life events in your chart.

Email Judith at JudithARobert@gmail.com (please note new email) with two
dates you would like to review in relation to your natal chart.  Please let Judith know if you are okay with
having your chart discussed in class.

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.
