DRUM AND DANCE THE 5 ELEMENTS
w/ Kat Rose and Ethan Anderson

Thursday, April 20th | 7:00 - 8:00pm

You are invited to participate in a mostly free-form improvisational Drumming & Dancing Circle! You will choose one option of whether to drum or to dance for the evening. If you choose to drum, all percussive instruments are welcome, as are melody wind instruments such as flutes and didgeridoos.

We will explore a variety of tempos and feeling tones as we journey through the 5 elements. This will be a space for creative freedom of expression! As drummers, we will enter into a synergistic communion with the dancers. Their dancing will feed and inspire our drumming and our drumming will feed and inspire their dancing.

If you choose to dance, Ethan will be leading you through a journey to your core employing both the 5 elements, and the 6 human needs. 1) Certainty (earth) 2) Variety (water) 3) Growth (air) 4) Significance (fire) 5) Contribution (spirit) and 6) Connection and Love (interdependence of the whole). In exploring the 5 elements along with our 6 human needsthis dance is designed to bring harmony and balance to every aspect of our life.

Please bring extra instruments for others to play, if you have them, and invite others you think may be interested! Contact Kat or Ethan with any questions. Children are welcome:-)

This event is offered in partnership with the Spiritual Awareness Community, Sol Alchemy and Dance Connexus. It will be happening every 3rd Thursday of the month at the Old Stone.

FOUND POETRY PLAYSHOP: AWESOME ACCIDENTS

Saturday, March 26th| 1 - 4:00 pm
Location: To Be Decided - In Bend

Found poetry: a most excellent way for collaging with words and allowing awesome accidents to occur.

Here’s William Burroughs on the subject: “…photographers will tell you that often their best shots are accidents . . . writers will tell you the same. The best writing seems to be done almost by accident but writers, until the cut up method was made explicit…had no way to produce the accident of spontaneity. You can not will spontaneity. But you can introduce the unpredictable spontaneous factor with a pair of scissors.”

Come experiment with methods that sprang forth from the Dadaists (anarchist artists – is that alone not enough to inspire your attendance?) and play/giarize your sweet heart out! Suspend judgment and convention in favor of free expression and authenticity.

Cost: $40.00 – $80 per person, sliding scale.

HEALING THE LOSS PARADIGM

Thurs March 9 - May 4, 2017 9 week series | 6:30 - 8:30 pm

Workshop Fee: $10 per week
Location: Aingeal Rose & Ahonu https://www.meetup.com/A ingeal-Rose-Ahonu, or call Gayle Zeigler on 925-366-3091

image of Aingeal Rose and AhonoIf we are not experiencing perfect happiness, something is wrong. What has gone wrong is what we call, The Loss Paradigm.

It operates underneath the surface of our conscious awareness and encompasses our beliefs about ourselves and the world, our judgements about each, our acceptance that loss, suffering, pain and death are natural and to be expected.

We have been asked by Source to look into the Loss Paradigm to explore whether it has any basis in truth, is it an absolute in this world, and can be changed? Does source mean it when it says it only wants our good, and that loss and suffering is not its will? We are offering an opportunity to take on this challenge.

We will meet for 9 weeks to explore the depths of our consciousness and seek out how the Loss Paradigm is manifesting in our lives. We will look at what happens when we change our minds about this, when we make the decision to stop believing in it and shift our consciousness over to The Innocent Paradigm.

The next time you want to shop, just go to www.smile.amazon.com instead of www.amazon.com. This takes you to the same Amazon shopping site, but it allows you to identify the cause you want to support, and a donation of a half of one percent of what you spend will be made. You only have to identify your cause once, and your Amazon account will remember it in the future when you sign in at smile.amazon. The first time you go to smile.amazon you may be prompted to sign into your Amazon account: As you sign in, you may be prompted to select the charity you want to support. If not, you can select the option to choose a charity by hovering over the down arrow next to "Your Account" (upper right) and selecting "Change your charity". When you get the charity selection screen, go to the search box labeled "Or pick your own charitable organization:" and type in "Spiritual Awareness Community", then click the "Search" button. From the list, click the "Select" button next to "Spiritual Awareness Community of the Cascades". That's it! Now just remember to go to www.smile.amazon.com when you want to shop at Amazon, and a donation will be made to the Spiritual Awareness Community when you shop.

(Thanks for supporting your spiritual community!)
