David Bennett, Voyage of Purpose

David Bennett, once a brash young commercial diver whose personal philosophy was “cut your swath through life to survive,” was caught in a violent storm off the California coast one night where he drowned. While technically “dead,” he met beings of light, relived his life, and peeked into his future, resulting in a complete paradigm shift for him. Later, he discovered he had stage IV lung and bone cancer—so advanced that his spine collapsed. Miraculously, he survived once again, and this second close call taught him even more about living, loving, and how to find purpose in his life.
Part memoir and part guide for achieving spiritual growth, this book shows how to integrate the most traumatic of incidents into one’s spiritual path in order to live a more meaningful life.

Ayurveda with Sandra Sampley

Ayurveda’s healing practices are as relevant today as they were 5,000 years ago. Described as the oldest system of health and healing, it is the art of daily living in harmony with the laws of nature. All of Ayurveda’s healing practices are based on an understanding of how to use the elements to balance the body and mind. Ayurvedic practices include: lifestyle, food, herbs, yoga, meditation, pranayama and massage. What can I expect to learn? Everything in nature, including ourselves, has a varying degree of the five elements (ether, air, fire, water and earth). We will discuss how the elements are present physically, emotionally, daily and seasonally. Once you understand what elemental qualities are present, you can begin to use the opposite quality to create balance. Sandra Sampley, RYT 500, is an Ayurvedic Yoga Specialist. She offers yoga classes and Ayurvedic workshops in the CNY area. Currently studying to become an Ayurvedic Health Counselor, the certification will allow her to provide personal consultations. For more information, please visit her website: www.uticayoga.com.

Movie Tuesday  May 25, 2015 Life and Art of a Zen Dude: Where does creativity come from? Zen calligraphic painter Alok Hsu Kwang-han proposes that it arises from emptiness, from that silent space where the intelligence prior to thought resides. Armed with rice paper, ink, brush and a collection of Zen koans and teachings, Alok opens the door to a world of magical brush strokes and enchanted students. On the verge of his 75th birthday and with a new love in his life, Alok employs his teachings to confront his own personal history. Through his workshops and his art we share a journey of transformation that becomes possible when we are simply 'present, available, playful, and not knowing.' Through Alok we discover that 'in a clear heart, no mountain hides the moon. Admission Free
