autumn leaves

The universe is a continuous web. Touch it at any point and the whole web quivers.
~Stanley Kunitz

In our daily life, we breathe, but we forget that we’re breathing.

We bring our attention to our in-breath and our out-breath.

Suddenly, we bring our body and our mind fully present in the here and now, and we smile.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

 

 

Your invitation to follow the breath immediately set the tone for quiet and reflection. I particularly enjoyed listening to the many natural sounds that surround Spirit Mountain and, by stopping and listening, I was able to feel myself a part of it all.
~Paul Zak

 

 

 

 

If you would have balance and order within, do one small thing at the same time each day with gratitude in your heart…
~Renée Miller

 

 

 

 

Courage and contentment are simply manifestations of the divine perfection that already exists with us all.
~Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

 

 

 

 

Try not to change the world.
You will fail.
Try to love the world.
Lo, the world is changed.
Changed forever.

~Sri Chinmoy

Awakening from the Dream
A Metaphysical Look at A Course in Miracles

Detour into Fear
and
The Way Out

A one day seminar based on the metaphysics of A Course in Miracles. 
This seminar offers a powerful explanation for how this world we live in came to be -- is nothing but a dream and how and why we have lost our connection with our True Selves and all our power.

In it you will learn how you, your body, and the life you live are a reflection of the deeper dynamics of your mind; why everything seems to go wrong in this world of dreams, what the central dynamic of your dreamworld is and how the singular source of all your problems caused you to detour into fear and what the singular solution is for finding the way out. 

Date: Saturday, August 22, 2015
Time: 9 AM - 4 PM
Fee: $60 (includes light lunch)
Registration: For more information, email or call 951-659-2523.

An intimate dialog about the beauty of aging mindfully and sharing our feelings about how our appearance changes throughout the aging process.

A deeply spiritual and inspiring discussion to encourage embracing our imperfections and expressing our inner and outer beauty with authentic self confidence.

During this discussion and writing experience we will share the stories of our shifts in emotion, thoughts and perceptions about the practice of walking in our own beauty.

It takes courage to accept our beauty. The beauty that expresses the depth of our souls. Allow it to emerge and soar!

What needs to evolve within ourselves to accept our authentic beauty and service the world with our gifts?

"Sukhavati" A Mythic Journey
(78 minutes)

Through archival excerpts from his finest filmed lectures interwoven with exquisite images and evocative music from around the world, renowned mythologist Joseph Campbell takes us on a journey of transcendence and illumination, a trip through the mythological symbols and sagas left by our ancient forebears. What is revealed en route is "mankind's one great story," the grand drama played out by all cultures on all continents since time immemorial. This saga "projected" on the screen of the universe is the mythic adventure that became Campbell's "Sukhavati," what he passionately embraced as his life's work, his place of bliss. Created byMaxine Harris and Sheldon Rochlin, with the enthusiastic support of the Joseph Campbell Foundation, this hypnotic and mesmerizing film is a deeply personal, almost spiritual, portrait of Campbell, told in his own words, in his twilight years, at the summit of his career and the apex of his intellectual powers. Through it, this great American thinker is still "joyfully participating in the sorrows of the world."

Death Café

"At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'. A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session." ~ www.deathcafe.com

An intimate dialog about the beauty of aging mindfully and sharing our feelings about how our appearance changes throughout the aging process.

A deeply spiritual and inspiring discussion to encourage embracing our imperfections and expressing our inner and outer beauty with authentic self confidence.

During this discussion and writing experience we will share the stories of our shifts in emotion, thoughts and perceptions about the practice of walking in our own beauty.

It takes courage to accept our beauty. The beauty that expresses the depth of our souls. Allow it to emerge and soar!

What needs to evolve within ourselves to accept our authentic beauty and service the world with our gifts?
