0001BJWe are  excited to anticipate another heart warming, community building event with Heather and Benjy and their guest musicians, Sean Frenette and Paul Gorn as Shantala once again joins Friends of Maher Bellingham in a fundraising kirtan! There will also be beautiful hand made bags and other items just purchased from the Maher community,  as well as  Shantala’s items for sale at the event. Our event takes place once again at Jenny Macke’s warm and inviting Presence Studio; Jenny has been a pivotal support for our Friends of Maher events, and we have much gratitude and joy in being in her beautiful space. Amazingly, Heather and Benjy have now synchronistically MET Sister Lucy, the founder and inspiring powerhouse and deep soul who established the wondrous healing community in India called Maher, which means Mother’s Home in the local Marathi language. They have been even more deeply inspired by Maher after their direct encounters with Sister Lucy in the U.S.,  during the same tour when Sister Lucy was here in Bellingham, and various other parts of the country. Of course feel free to visit the Maher Ashram website, as well as Shantala’s!  PLEASE NOTE: we are inviting people to help us during the evening of the kirtan, with set up and take down, as well as with selling items for Shantala and Friends of Maher! Please let me know if you are interested in helping out. And of course we hope you will come to our event, and bring your family and friends! Children may come for free, or for a smaller donation, as needed.

This is early notice of the 4th annual Shantala fundraising event for Maher, to be held on June 14th at Presence Studio! We hope you can attend. Also, if you would like to contribute in a larger way, Friends of Maher will host a silent auction at the event, as we did last year. We need items, gifts certificates, and services such as professional healing work, that may be offered in this auction. Please speak with Elizabeth if you have an offering for the auction!
