earth, chant, dragons

Hi Friends!

Did I tell you I’m heading up “Main Ritual” for Dragonfest this year? Well, I am.
Want to help? I just wrote the ritual… it’s a doozy. Or maybe it’s a total not-doozy… want to help anyway? Please let me know as soon as you possibly can. I’ll need to recruit maybe a dozen or so helpers… and it will be necessary to meet in person at least once ahead of time… maybe twice… to go over songs and walk through it.
Plus… did I tell you there’s an Earth Day celebration this Saturday (April 22nd) at Westland Park Pavilion? Well, there is! I’ll be leading Dances of Universal Peace at 10:30 or 11 AM… and again around 1 PM. Please join us. It’s free. It’s fun. It’s Earth-loving! More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1830317453846927/

AND… I’m sure I told you there’s a Chant this Sunday, April 23rd. I’m excited! 7 PM – 1401 W Vine, Fort Collins – $10 suggested donation – singing, singing, singing… la-la-la-la-la…

MOREOVER… I didn’t tell you, but I’m about to: some of us who refuse to grow up are going to ride Go-Karts at Fort Fun at 3 PM this Sunday (the 23rd). $8 a pop. Feel free to join us if you aren’t too much of an adult.

THEN… Sufi Meditation at my house Monday, April 24th – 9:30 AM – for real this time.

FARTHER AWAY… Zikr is still on a weird date in May – Saturday, May 13th – 7 PM – 1939 S Monroe. Don’t forget. $10 suggested donation and dessert potluck.

Oh my good golly… this is just so good! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEvsDuJYEnI

In case you are curious… “haberttyjank” is a phrase used in my household to describe something that is (according to Tim) “red-neck engineered in such a way to make one think that it may not work, but we’ll give it a go.” That is the “northern” spelling and definition of the phrase. Take it or leave it.
I thought it would be spelled differently, but I am often wrong in these matters and defer to Tim’s greater wisdom.

Here’s a Sufi tidbit you never would have expected: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SwWL5xCzhM
said the soul is gold… and gold is the color of happiness… and honey is gold.

Love and happiness,
