*INVOKING MEMORY ~ MBIRA EVENT*
Saturday November 14, at 8pm (doors open at 7)
ARTEMIS GALLERY 4390 Gallant Ave, Deep Cove, N. Van,
Featuring ERICA AZIM playing mbira and sharing songs and culture of Zimbabwe.
Mbira is a sacred music which connects the living with those who have departed from the physical plane – thus this event in connection with this time of remembrance. This is an mbira concert and space will be provided to be creative. Create an image, write poetry, knit, …or sing song, dance or listen deeply. Bring an image of a departed loved one if you feel you want to share memory in your experience. Erica Azim will play mbira and lead singing.
All donations will go to the MBIRA Musicians Fund, and will be distributed to over 200 Zimbabwean traditional musicians who earn less than $100 in 2014. Suggested donation $20 and upward.

Please join us to welcome author Ralph White for the presentation and signing of his new book ‘The Jeweled Highway ~ On the Quest for a Life of Meaning’. The evening will feature a special introduction by Dr. Leonard George.
Monday, October 5th, 7pm to 9pm
Free Admission / Seating is Limited
Ralph’s own search for meaning has taken him on many adventures in South America and Tibet, and led him to become deeply involved in supporting the worldwide emergence of a holistic and ecological worldview. His new book recalls his childhood in Wales; adolescence in gritty Northern England; and later, his distinguished pioneering role in multiple centers of spiritual learning.
An excerpt from the preface to The Jeweled Highway ~ On the Quest for a Life of Meaning by American psychotherapist and author Thomas Moore:
“…Ralph White’s narrative offers direction to current voyagers and travelers on the way out of materialistic insanity into meaning. Don’t glorify any truth or tradition. Participate. Participate. Feel the insights and discoveries of others. Don’t restrict yourself to any truth. Open your heart to the most lowly practitioners of wisdom. Don’t succumb to the lures of the sweet and the lofty. Remain loyal to the lowly and the grimy. Stay grounded, even as you explore the highest.”
Tibetan Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman, writes: “If you want to know where we’ve been and where we’re headed in these times of great danger and opportunity, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”
A lovely pop-up shop for the Holidays offering locally sourced, traditionally crafted food provisions & festive baked goods. Probably the best preserves & festive cookies I’ve tasted anywhere (and honey, and crackers, and spiced nuts, and fruit syrups…) For workshop & special event info see the calendar at: provisions12.com
Facilitated by artist/instructor Kerry Vaughn Erickson
Ritual and Remembrance
Saturday February 22nd, 2014 1 – 2:30pm
Celebrant Lisa Hartley and artist Shannon Browne present a workshop offering an imaginative, playful and thoughtful approach to creating a Celebration of Life.
This workshop looks at simple things we can do to infuse a deeper sense of the person you have lost, into the Ceremony at the end of their life.
We consider what is typically done at a memorial, what’s been done historically and how to help you tap into more personal rituals that bring meaning to a Celebration of life.
An intentionally created Ceremony reflects the person who has died and helps those remaining, grieve.
