The Power of Meditation with Reverend Lela
Friday, May 7th, 6 – 9 pm This event is Free
This Friday, we are going to do something special—-we will start at 6pm with an indoor or outdoor (weather permitting) labyrinth walk followed by a guided meditation. This will get us perfectly in a place of peace to have dinner and watch a movie. We are going to watch a movie called “Flow: for the love of water” ~about the world water crisis and the economics of water. We will order some form of take out for dinner so please bring $5-7 to contribute. I look forward to seeing you all there. In Peace, Rev Lela

The movie–Irena Salina’s award-winning documentary investigation into what experts label the most important political and environmental issue of the 21st Century – The World Water Crisis. Salina builds a case against the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling fresh water supply with an unflinching focus on politics, pollution, human rights, and the emergence of a domineering world water cartel. Begging the question “CAN ANYONE REALLY OWN WATER?” Beyond identifying the problem, FLOW also gives viewers a look at the people and institutions providing practical solutions to the water crisis and those developing new technologies, which are fast becoming blueprints for a successful global and economic turnaround.

Please join us for our Sufi Meditation and Healing sessions on Thursday evenings. Leonardo Stoute “Bapak Waleed” will be leading a traditional Sufi Zikr circle and mediation session with a special performance of the Whirling Dervish dance in the traditional style of the poet Rumi, an important aspect of many Sufi orders. The Zikr, or remembrance, is a ceremony of healing for all those present and even those who only intended to come. Guests are asked to close their eyes, focus on their breath, and join in the chanting if they like.

The evening includes a group invocation of blessings and peace followed by a short discussion. Come enjoy the relaxing experience. Refreshments will be provided.

All are welcome, including famlies and children. On Thursdays at 8pm, lasts about an hour. Donations appreciated
