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!

Friday, Apr 7, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm (DATE CHANGE!)
Free DVD showings, silent sitting and dialogue.
Facilitator:  David Bruneau

These meetings, now on the first Friday of the month from 7:00 to 9:00 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. In this type of discussion, purposeful awareness of the goings on of the mind is suggested 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. 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
