image of image of drums

You are invited to participate in a mostly free-form improvisational drum circle. 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. We will do a short guided exercise at the beginning to tune into the energy of the different elements, and then no other direction will be given other than Kat calling out when we we are transitioning to the next element.

This will be a space for creative freedom of expression. Come move some energy and receive the blessing of each element as it moves and expresses through our collective field.

Please bring extra instruments for others to play, if you have them.

NAVARATRI 2017 - THE 9 NIGHTS OF THE GODDESS

Wednesday, September 20th to Friday, September 29th| 7:00pm
Location: Sol Alchemy Temple: 2150 NE Studio Road #A-5 in Bend

It’s that time of year again! Mark your calendars and join us for 9 nights of community gatherings, experiences and ritual (see full schedule below), in observance, honor and celebration of Navaratri!

The traditional Indian festival of Navaratri celebrates the Divine Feminine in all her aspects and symbolizes the victory of positivity over negativity. We understand that our negativity can be conquered by the divine positive qualities that are inherent within us.

The 9 nights (Nava =9; Ratri=night), are divided into 3 nights for each of the 3 main incarnations of Shakti or Ma Durga.

Most events start at 7pm, but not all.

COMMUNITY GRIEF GATHERING

Wednesday, September 24th| 9:00am - 4:00pm
Location: Sol Alchemy Temple: 2150 NE Studio Road #A-5 in Bend

Grief is our universal language. No matter who we are, we share the common language of grief.

Whether from death, divorce, abandonment, illness, conflict, the loss of dreams, from witnessing harm to the earth and humanity. Now, more than ever, we must find a way to release and heal our sorrows as a community and a collective. It is imperative to our spiritual health.

Join us as we lay down our personal and collective grief in a sacred community ceremony.

Did you know that you can support the Spiritual Awareness Community simply by shopping at Amazon? Many of us shop at Amazon anyway, so here is all you have to do, and it won't cost you anything. 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. You'll know it's working because when you sign into smile.amazon.com there will be a note below the search box that says "Supporting: Spiritual Awareness Community of the Cascades". (Thanks for supporting your spiritual community!)


The Spiritual Awareness Community of the Cascades has created a Meetup page. Meetup is an online service that matches events with people who may be interested in attending the events. We announce our Sunday Circle services and other events through the Meetup page. We could use your help.

Please consider joining Meetup and becoming a member of our Meetup community. Then, please RSVP to attend our events and post comments on this afterward.
