The High Noon Choir

The High Noon Choir invites all who like to sing in harmony to join us on Tuesdays for lively and joyous sessions of song.  Directed by Shivon Robinsong, founder of the Gettin’ Higher Choir, the High Noon Choir provides a place for singers who are looking for a daytime outlet for their voices.  Our repertoire is eclectic, including but not limited to world music, spirituals, African freedom songs, various rounds and chants, as well as some contemporary music. You do not need to know how to read music as much of the music is learned by oral tradition.  New singers are always welcome!

WALKING TO JAPAN — Book reading and signing. Free admission. Books available, $20 cash only.

Walking to JapanAuthor Carolyn Affleck Youngs will read from her new book and speak about her late husband Derek Youngs, who walked 25,000 km through 25 countries in the name of PEACE. What started as a manifesto became a mantra and his legacy continues to inspire people across the globe. In a world that seems haywire, we learn by example to create change that brings out our best and connects us to others. Youngs’ memoir is a touching, insightful and humorous tale of learning to let go and love, one step at a time.

‘Speak To Me Like You Love Me’ – Foundations of Nonviolent Communication with Rachelle Lamb

speak to me like you love meExplore a revolutionary approach to speaking up, establishing rapport and resolving differences. Radically shift your experience of communication with this liberating, transformational and dynamic practice rooted in spiritual and emotional intelligence. Break through limiting thought and speech patterns established through social conditioning, and replace them with a powerful way of communicating that is deeply satisfying, life honouring and creatively liberating. Come with an open mind so you can experience the power of vibrant, authentic connection with those you love, those you don’t love, and the living world that sustains you.

‘Speak to me like you love me’ is a workshop title that acknowledges the need we have as human beings to know that we matter to others, beyond the romantic or intimate sense. We can learn to overcome enculturated habits in our language that tragically normalize alienating and ‘power over’ ways of relating with each other. This workshop is intended for anyone willing to do the work to significantly enhance and transform personal and professional relationships. It is intended for all possessed by a longing to learn how to speak their way towards a better day. It is for artists, dreamers, lovers, couples, creatives, educators, counsellors, leaders, managers, parents, mediators and those committed to personal and social change.

Sunday, Mar 12, 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Free DVD showing, silent sitting, dialogue, and refreshments.
Facilitator:  David Bruneau

These meetings on the second Sunday of the month from 2:00 to 5:00 pm are sponsored by the Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Canada.  J. Krishnamurti, the world-renowned 20th century philosopher and educator, has written and lectured extensively on relevant subjects such as freedom, love, truth, and meditation.  His ability to tackle these themes with great honesty and insight has helped many to see themselves and the world around them in a new way. The focus is on self understanding through self inquiry and includes contemporary teachers other than Krishnamurti.  The gatherings will include a short video clip of “K” speaking on a chosen topic, a printed handout from his book “Freedom From the Known”, which will be read at the meeting, and a group discussion. This type of discussion is seen by some as purposeful awareness of the goings on of the mind while a chosen topic is being looked at. This allows us to listen to others and observe ourselves in the process of discovering each subject anew and with clarity, as though encountering it and ourselves for the first time, and to share our spontaneous insight as it arises… Thus, this is an invitation to learn about ourselves and to act on our new discoveries.  There will be a short break for refreshments and then a video will be shown of another spiritual teacher such as Eckhart Tolle, Mooji, Rupert Spira, or Scott Kiloby – the specific person may vary each time – speaking on the same subject.  Finally, there will be another opportunity for group dialogue as time allows.  There is no charge for these events.

Wednesday, 19 April 2017    7:30  –  9:30 pm
Public talk by William Meader, international spiritual wisdom teacher (author of “Shine Forth – The Soul’s Magical Destiny”)

“Death: The Great Adventure”

To those who live spiritually, death is understood as a beginning, not an end. Yet there are few who know death as a great adventure, and who truly understand the deeper processes of death, as the soul seeks to begin its liberation from form. In this presentation, death will be examined from the esoteric point of view. The nature of the “second death” will be discussed, as well as the after death experience known as Devachan. In addition, reincarnation will be examined.

Suggested donation: $15

For more info contact Ann at annharley7@gmail.com or visit meader.org
