Friday, December 1, 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.

Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga with Don McGinnis

Drop ins are welcome for this  weekly class beginning October 10.

Kum Nye (pronounced KOOM NAY) was introduced to North America in the 1970’s by Rimpoche Tarthang Tulku, and is now practiced worldwide. Kum Nye is part of a  lineage which links Tibetan with Chinese and Indian practices.  A gentle healing system that relieves stress, transforms negative patterns, helps us to be more balanced and healthy, and increases our enjoyment, energy and appreciation of life.

Kum Nye has been practiced since the time of the Buddha, looks and feels like a combination of qi gong, yoga, and meditation. This practice was introduced to the west as a way to assist the restless mind to relax and deepen meditative practice. The practice involves gentle movement, chanting, and sitting practice.

To Register or for more information: Contact Don McGinnis at info@movingpresence.center or 250-897-5576 website movingpresence.center

Winter SOULstice: The Nature of Wild Food & Sacred Sound
Nature’s Chef & Light of Sound

Join us for this powerful SOULstice celebration remembering the light as we bath in the darkness of the night on the shortest day of the year, connecting with each other over wildcrafted food and sacred sound vibration. This has been an incredible year and we intend to celebrate our collective evolution and honour this passage into 2018.

Since the beginning of time, our human evolution has developed from pure sound vibration and wild foods. Join us for a magical experience of dinner and sacred sounds within the Church of Truth as we journey through the senses.

Nature’s Chef, Tom Kral will create a local-wild-holistic feast. This meal will be plant-based and gluten-free with a wild seafood and sourdough option. After dinner, to soothe our digestion, sound healing practitioner, Astaria, Light of Sound, will lead us through a magical Harmonic Sound Journey.

Music and sound has the unique ability to cultivate a sense of love, peacefulness, and clarity throughout every cell in the body, whilst bringing one into alignment with truth, higher consciousness, and connection with the Divine. Sound Vibration allows the body to entrain to a higher frequency, creating space for self-healing, heightened awareness, and remembrance of one’s truest form.
