Highlighted & New Events


 SACRED WATERS IS OPEN
Sacred Waters is still open on a limited basis since some groups are not ready to start up. The 7-day infection rate in St. Joseph County has been running around 6% which is about what they recommend to open. We will continue to have only meetings with 10 or less. Sunday meditation and Buddhism with be on Zoom.

Everyone will be expected to wear masks for indoor events. I will limit events to 10 people. I will do temperature checks and we will be distanced at 6 feet. The upstairs will be closed, so everyone will need to use the downstairs bathroom. There will be hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes for the bathroom. Sacred Waters has a special air purifier called a Reme Halo which is supposed to eliminate bacteria and viruses. We will have the windows open and the fans on for better air circulation. Please honor your own feelings and don’t come if you don’t feel safe.

Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings.

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.

DREAMWORK GROUP WITH ALMA SPENCER
On the first Wednesday 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

On the second Thursday at 7 p.m.
Diane Winn, Brenda Statzer and others 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. 
 
POWER ANIMAL RETRIEVAL

Kirtan is a listening and interactive sound healing experience. Using call and response chanting with easy, repetitive melodies and joyous danceable rhythms, the songs are sung in the ancient languages of world religions. They set free the chattering mind, deepen the breath, and create a state of calm, where the eternal love that lies in each heart can unfold and open. All ages and faith traditions welcome.
