Classes for HomesNow: Restoratives

Two more classes this coming week, Tuesday the 18th, and Wednesday the 19th, to benefit HomesNow. I am so happy for last week’s students partaking in classes, and folks generously donating to HomesNow, some even making extra donations, or unable to attend, donating nonetheless. I am grateful for all of these expressions of camraderie in finding ways to help, in the sea of so much need, close and far away in this time. Here is the flyer again, in case you feel moved to come, and do a candlelight restorative class this week! Winter flyer and the benefit flyer are combined. Happy Solstice, and all winter holidays you celebrate.

Webinar with Ravi Ravindra

Four Webinars on
Learning to Live by Dying Daily

Saturdays, 10:00 11:00 a.m. Central time
November 17, 24; December 1, 8, 2018

Our attitude toward death and dying has a direct impact on our living. All that lives will die, yet according to a yaksha, a celestial being in the Mahabharata, the greatest mystery in the world is that we humans see creatures dying all around us but none of us believes that I, too, will die. Our understanding of what “I” is, and what the relationship between “I” and the body is, affects our attitude towards death.

We will explore the understanding of death and what happens after death as articulated in major religious traditions and in the relevant scientific data dealing with reincarnation, near-death experiences, and the shifts in attitudes of people nearing death.

Stillpoint Offerings!

Stillpoint at Beckside, a local contemplative Christian spirituality center, and friend of Turtle Haven will be offering a retreat with Brother Ivan, an Italian Benedictine monk who lives at a monastery in Berkeley. For anyone interested in progressive and evolving ideas within Christianity, this promises to be a wonderful opportunity. There are some partial sign ups and scholarships available for those in need. On Thursday night October 11th, prior to the weekend offerings Brother Ivan will be offering a two hour gathering at Assumption Church in Bellingham, with the fascinating focus of humans as co-creators of the world, and an exploration that for him weaves together faith, science, ecology, arts and technologies; this seems to be the heartbeat of his work. Please contact Stillpoint for details. The flyers below give more information, and contact information for Stillpoint!
