Peace to All the People

Hello Community Friends,
The theme for today is Peace. I often marvel at the ongoing need and the intensity of the need for this constantly relevant theme. Here we are. Humanity. It’s easy to think that the need, the disharmony and suffering is greater than ever. I don’t believe it is. But I do believe we are in a moment of evolution in which we can see our fellow humans more directly, more intimately, more personally than ever before. 
Murshid SAM used to say, “you may think we are about music and dance, but we are actually about peace on earth.” I invite you, friends, to join in these circles of music, prayer, peace on earth, creating an atmosphere of beauty and harmony within ourselves so we can embody tolerance, kindness and friendship in the world. C’mon! 

This evening, Saturday, May 15th, 7 PM Mountain Time (1 AM Sunday UTC) – Zikr – we will include prayers and blessings for Murshida Siraja Khadija Goforth who left her body Thursday night – A few friends will be joining me in my home…there is room for a couple more if you’re in the Fort Collins area and feel comfortable and happy about being in the zikr vibe with us. Or Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/505295922?pwd=ZVY2WmpVZURjdCtmVUFZdU1iRFpsQT09

Tomorrow, Sunday, May 16th, 10 AM Mountain Time (4 PM UTC) – I’m delighted to be part of Aliela’s Joy of Singing Zoom. She hosts these online chant, dance, and zikr gatherings from Moscow, Russia. Contact me directly for the link.

when there are no doughnuts…

Beloved Community,
I am so sad to say, I will not have doughnuts at this week’s Gathas class. Why?! Because I’m fasting and neither of the other humans in my house want them. WHAT?!?! How is that possible? I DON’T KNOW!!
