Oneness Wednesdays in December, 2014

Wednesdays Dec 3, 10, 31
7:00- 8:30 p.m. (Note start time)
Free or by donation

December 3 (7:00 – 8:30) by Rebecca Hanson, presenting Buddhist teachings and meditation on Compassion.

Topic: Developing Compassion

Description: During this Holiday season, we will very likely spend time with people who seem to “push our buttons.” How can we develop compassion towards them? The main obstacle to developing compassion for all living beings is the feeling of dislike towards others. We cannot have compassion towards all beings while we continue to feel glad to meet some people and irritated or annoyed when meeting others. This 90 minute class will contain several brief guided meditations as we examine how we can begin to change our perspective and discover how developing compassion can make an improvement in all our relationships.

Teacher: Rebecca Hanson is a member and a senior teacher with Bodhichitta Buddhist Centre, a registered charity and member of the worldwide New Kadampa Tradition. Rebecca has taught in many venues, including the Wednesday morning and Saturday morning courses at Bodhichitta Buddhist Center. She is currently the branch teacher for the Centre’s Thursday night Meditation Classes at James Bay. Rebecca draws from both her meditation experiences and her life experiences to make her teachings clear and meaningful.

Oneness Wednesdays in October 2014

Wednesdays Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 29
7:30- 9:00 p.m.

Renee Lindstrom of Inside Awareness, will be presenting ‘The Beauty Path’s 4 Aspects of Self.’  This will begin on the first Wednesday that is  the eve before  “World Empathy Day” with a community outdoor candlelight Labyrinth Walk.  The consecutive Wednesday’s will move indoors into the Church of Truth’s beautiful  sanctuary.

The indoor events will begin by shifting focus to a Medicine Wheel from the Labyrinth. The Medicine Wheel is a traditional Peoples reflective walking pattern that has been adopted by Canada’s West Coast Tribes from our Plains Tribes.   We are happy to have Nicole Mandryk, a Metis Songstress sing for us and pay tribute to our first Peoples of the land in James Bay where the Church of Truth is located.  This will be followed by an elder of the Church, Steven Graves, who will open the Medicine Wheel and call in the four directions.

At the next two Wednesday’s in October the focus of attention will shift from conscious movement to mindfulness as we begin to explore each quadrant of the Medicine Wheel’s four aspects of self:  mental, emotional, physical and belief.  We will sit in a talking circle of respect and friendship.

On our last Wednesday evening together in October we will integrate our personal experiences of the Medicine Wheel into experiencing a labyrinth walk.  It will begin by laying a labyrinth together to create and hold the space.  This will be followed by walking our pathway to the heartbeat of our month-long experience together.

The Wednesday Evening Breakdown:

Wednesday, Oct 1 – 7:00 – 8:00 pm  CANDLE LIGHT LABYRINTH WALK

Oneness Wednesdays in Fall 2014

Once again Oneness Wednesdays will be starting up after the summer hiatus….. What offerings will this year bring? Who will be willing to come forward and play on the edge of who we continually invent ourselves to be?  Will it be you?

Over the years since Oneness Wednesdays have come into being as the inspired idea of Linda Chan and Pat Miller, there have been a wide variety of offerings. We have invited meditation and circle dance and chi gong; explored the decline of  patriarchy, and attended  Death Cafés and flying sessions. We created labyrinths to walk, sacred ceremonies, and more, much more!

This coming season’s presenters promise to be just as varied and dynamic with a return by our Writing Diva, Junie Swadron kicking off  September 10 with a series of writing based activities, followed by labyrinth and medicine circle  exploring with Renee Lindstrom in October. November will bring a follow-up to the Death Cafes with  a further exploration of end-life preparedness strategies with everyone’s favorite Death Mid-wife Don Morris. Susan Blackwood will lead us the first three weeks in December with an exploration of the symbology  that was put into creating the physical structure of the church.  She envisions physically activating the original symbology that was used to create the space –  a perfect sacred activity for finishing up the calendar year. Renee Lindstrom will help us bring in the New Year’s energies with a December 31 labyrinth walk focused on manifesting our goals.

We are continually open to new suggestions and feedback, of course – let’s dialogue!

Oneness Wednesdays are offered on a free or by donation basis with half the monies collected going to the COT and the other half going to a worthy charity. Running from 7:30 – 9pm on Wednesdays with the possibility of an extension they are an excellent way of fostering community and sending goodwill out to the broader community.

Please join us in our sacred space, 111 Superior St by Fisherman’s Wharf.  Help send streams of Love, Joy, Peace and compassion to this beautiful planet, our home.

Be at Peace

Peggy and Paul

 June 18                 CELEBRATING THE SUMMER SOLSTICE  With Betsy Nuse

Litha, Midsummer and St. John’s Day are all names associated with Old European festivals at the astronomical event of summer solstice. This time of year has been celebrated in many ways for many, many generations. What meanings can we take – from both the season and from these old traditions – for ourselves, today?

We’ll consider and celebrate – through movement and reflection – how we can more closely align ourselves with the world around us at this time, as we’re surrounded by warm air, long days, short nights, greenery and flowers.

We’ll gather first indoors, but then spend some time outside in park adjacent to the church before returning indoors to end the evening. Please bring appropriate footwear/hats/sweaters or jackets!

*****Betsy Nuse is a student of sacred/circle dance, gardening/permaculture, poetry and wisdom traditions.

Oneness Wednesdays in April

Wednesdays April 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
From 7:30- 9:00 p.m.
Everyone is welcome to drop in free or by donation
SOMATIC MINDFULNESS from the Inside Out
With Renee Lindstrom 

Begin your Spring with exploring mindful somatic connections in your body, brain and behavior functions. Increase clarity using a technique to explore your own self-image and heightening your sensory awareness.  Expect to be taken through guided exercises that may give you a surprising outcome!

Each of the following Wednesday evening events may leave you with a heart-mind-soul connection not unlike devotion even though the focus is softening an inward view of oneself.

Special Guest, Betsy Nuse, a student of Sacred/Circle Dance, will be joining us to enhance your movement experience in connection to dance.  Each Wednesday evening will end as it began; in a circle as we explore our movement integration with a Sacred Circle Dance.  A beautiful simple dance has been chosen to increase the inner felt sensation of the powerful connection through your body from feet to outstretched hands.

The music we have chosen is “Ya Ribon Olam;” a Jewish Sabbath song with lyrics in Aramai on the album by Giora Feidman called “Jewish Soul Music.”

Historically a community would dance one (or few) dances together year after year.  By adopting this tradition for April’s Oneness Wednesday Community it may enhance the group connection to deepen inner conscious connection!

****You may bring a blanket to lie on and remember to dress comfortably.****

(Recommend no jeans or tight belts)

April 2                   The first Wednesday of April will be a Journey of Inner Reflection and Connection that will let your mind become restful.  Through focused movement and a quiet mind you may find a gap of clarity become available.  This result is much like a sitting meditation yet with a different focus.  The difference in meditation is that the focus is on observing your mind and in this the focus is integrate your mind.

By integrating your mind it will cut confusion and balance body and mind, behavior and increase your ability of inner focusing.   This somatic awareness enhances your meditation and yoga practice, it doesn’t compete with it!

April 9                  On this second Wednesday you will focus on Deepening Body Awareness to encourage a quieter mind and expanding your “3 D self-image.”  Currently the world reflects back to you your self-image.  Often it is a mirror reflecting back to you your self-image.  This evening you will explore a somatic experience of your own self-image.   Enjoy increasing your potential of experiencing more balance in your environment from the inside out!

April 16                On this third Wednesday you will experience a Focus on Body Movement that becomes prayer like in your own balance of inner and outer connection!  Not to be missed if you want to find yourself in self-connection that is unlike any other system! You may find yourself in a state of appreciation that you may not be expecting and it is without any doctrine or guru.  It is simply through your own ability to connect to all parts of yourself in a balanced and harmonious way.

April 23                The fourth Wednesday will focus on a Movement Sequence that will be a gift for a lifetime.  It will be a movement pattern that is easy and that will balance your emotions, nervous system and your bad posture habits.  This pattern sequence will support your nervous system and given you a strong ability to cope with your everyday life.  It may become a must do sequence of self-connection before meditating! It will enhance all your abilities and deepen your coping skills!

April 30                The final Wednesday will bring you into Exploring Bigger Movements to integrate your body, mind and behavior inner sensing into regular daily activities and others you pursue such as dancing, walking, fitness.  The skill of observation will give you increased awareness of yourself in other areas of enjoying your life!

In 2012 Renee hosted a month-long Oneness Wednesday Awareness program with the Church of Truth.  The focus was the Season for Nonviolence and using the skills of nonviolent communication.

In 2013 Renee hosted a month-long Oneness Wednesday Awareness program at the Church of Truth.  The focus was on Labyrinths for Walking and Integrating it with movement and inner communication and self-empathy.

March 5 Crystal Vibrations with Valerie Carter

Transform your body, mind and spirit at the experiential workshop featuring the harmonic energy of crystal singing bowls. The alchemy tones determined by bowl size, musical note and the mix of pure quartz crystal with precious gem stones and minerals promotes healing through vibration. Give yourself permission to entrain with the frequencies of the bowl’s pristine crystalline structure to clear energetic blocks in the physical and spiritual bodies as you respond and resonate at a deep cellular level.

March 12 The Power of Sound with Valerie Carter

Throughout history the power of sound has been used in many forms with ceremony, prayer and intent to achieve a higher state of vibrational energy to connect with Spirit. Tibetan bowls, chanting and the inaudible sound of prayer
were used by Buddhists, while the Indigenous peoples drummed and shook rattles during dance to bring forth rain, abundant harvest and successful hunts. Today, following the traditions of ancient cultures we continue to use the power of sound and intent with crystal bowls and toning for healing and transformation.

About Valerie Carter

My journey to this place of sound healing began with a call to study and practice an eclectic mix of healing modalities as I travelled through the snow covered Canadian prairie provinces to receive my Reiki I & II Attunements and an
initiation into Body Talk. Returning to the mild coast of Vancouver Island I enrolled in an eight month Light worker’s Energy Medicine Course to obtain my certificate for Reiki Master/Teacher, Crystal Chakra Balancing, Deep Emotional
Release, Past Life Regression and Shamanic Energy Medicine.

After hanging my Karuna®Reiki/Teacher Certificate on the wall I took my first trip to the red rocks of Sedona and studied BioridianTherapy® with North American Aboriginal Healer, David Singing Bear. My interest in the Healing Arts expanded as I taught Reiki classes and conducted healing sessions where weird became normal as the increasing awareness of sensations in my body matched energy blockages in the client.

Continuing to answer the call, I returned to Sedona to learn the Ancient Sounds of Pineal Tones and at the same time, following a synchronistic nudge, purchased Crystal Singing Bowls leading to a passion and intuitive knowledge of healing with the vibration of sound. Study included many hours of online courses and
practice of the Galactic Dimensions of Sound, Mastering Conscious Sound and Lemurian Pineal Tone Practice Course, as well as a Sacred Journey to the rain forest of Hawaii with renowned Songstress, Lenedra Carroll, mother of Jewel, and Hawaiian Kahuna Kaleiiliahi, focusing on ‘Songlines’, the ancient traditions of sound and ceremony in nature.

March 19 & 26 ACTIVE DREAMING  NANCE THACKER – Level II Certified Dreamworker  (Robert Moss Dream Teacher Training)  B.A., Dipl S.T., CH (Certified Hypnotist)

Becoming a Dream Archaeologists in the Multiverse

Our daily life in ordinary reality is enriched when we remember, record, work and play with our dreams. In the dreamworld we are whole, healed and have access to infinite wisdom. The power of imagination and creativity, sleep dreams, conscious dreaming, synchronicity; all will be explored through dream games and the Lightning Dreamwork Process of Robert Moss. As we journey on the beat of the drum we discover that we don’t need to sleep in order to dream and that our dreamlife and daily waking life are constantly communicating with each other.

A dream archaeologist is one who embarks consciously into dreams with intention; blends the skills of shamanic dreaming, investigative reporting and scholarship; and brings the dream wisdom into action turning it into useful effects in our daily life and our world.

Healing and transformation await dream explorers in the sacred space and compassionate dreamcircle energy that we create together. As we navigate our way through levels of consciousness, explore other realities and reclaim ancestral wisdom, living our bigger story and our soul’s passion becomes possible.

Experienced and novice dreamers are welcome.

Bring with you: pillow, blanket, eye covering, journal, pen, something for the altar, a sense of adventure; wear comfortable, warm clothing.

March 26 ACTIVE DREAMING
Honing our Dreaming Skills with Dream Games and Dream Theatre

Practice, practice, practice, play and have fun…more explorations in the multiverse, refining tools for navigating between the worlds and living a conscious life here and NOW. Participation in the previous week’s workshop, though helpful, isn’t essential but a sense of adventure and fun is :-)

Experienced and novice dreamers are welcome.

Bring with you: pillow, blanket, eye covering, journal, pen, something for the altar, a sense of adventure; wear comfortable, warm clothing.

 Community Discussion 

As a community of conscious living that is constantly evolving, it is important to check in from time to time to find out:
Who we are now
What is working
What isn’t
What we want to stay the same
What we want to change – if anything
In order to hear from everyone about these questions, the Board has requested the Oneness Wednesday slots in January to hold open discussions.
The first three sessions will be to get consensus for recommended motions for change. The final week will be an opportunity to vote on the motions.
The sessions will be open to all participants in the community. However, only paid members will be eligible to vote.
This type of all-community discussion has proved very fruitful and enlightening in the past. It also helps us know each other better in a safe and friendly environment as we respectfully
express our similar and diverse thoughts and feelings about our spiritual community.
