How to Cultivate Healing by Tom Spector, PhD

Tom will present a talk, “How to Cultivate Healing”, based on Part 1 of his book, Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing. For over 35 years, Tom has been sharing his special gift for helping people resolve issues of stress, worry, anxiety, fear, guilt, and chronic pain, and to restore self-esteem. Tom’s teachings are clear and easy to follow. They combine profound meaning with light humor. Learn techniques that really work!

Tom began meditating in 1968 while enrolled in a highly selective, intense graduate program at Yale University. He was struggling not only with the curriculum, but also with anger and battered sense of self-esteem when he decided to learn meditation to improve his situation. Meditation seemed to clarify issues and elucidate the best paths forward. Tom then completed the full PhD Program in record time. He has been teaching meditation and healing since 1976. Tom’s book, Our Two Gardens: How to Cultivate Healing and Meditation and Healing CD, will be available for purchase at the talk. Tom lives in North Carolina with his wife, Joanna, who teaches yoga at Duke University and their studio.

BERNIETuesday September 1 7:00-8:30pm
Bernie Informational Meet Up and Call to Action

Senator Bernie Sanders has been a sane, uncorrupted voice in politics for over 4 decades and now he is running for president on a platform that addresses income and racial inequality, climate change, educational access, money in politics and a host of other issues that are important to all Americans. He speaks truth to power – clearly, forcefully and without apology and it is delightfully refreshing. Whether you are looking to find out more about Bernie Sanders or looking to get involved in the campaign, we invite you to join us for a thoughtful discussion on how to move our country forward. Hosted by Robert Roskind and moderated by Rebecca Cerese

How to Forgive When You Can’t with Marilyn Grubbs

Forgiveness is the most powerful tool in the world to regain love, peace, and joy in your life.
Are there people or situations from the past or present that don’t have “free passage” through your mind? In other words, are you unable to think about them without experiencing anger, blame, resentment, shame and/or other negative emotions? If this is true for you, you owe it to yourself to become free of the burden of these emotions by doing the work of forgiveness. This talk will give you an introduction to the Power Forgiveness process, designed to help you forgive even the most difficult situations.

WHOLEMarilyn Grubbs, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor, has attended an extensive professional training program with Dr. Jim Dincalci, author of the award-winning book, How to Forgive When You Can’t. She has a private practice in Chapel Hill, and is a practitioner in the Whole Person Wellness Center. marilyngrubbs@gmail.com or www.wholepersoncenter.com

JEWELSONG! LIVE! FREE!

Let Jewelsong guide you on a musical journey of healing and magic. In honor of Labor Day, we will explore ways of transforming our relationship with the work we do in the world and for the world, through a participatory ritual. Doors open at 7, and the ritual begins at 7:30, to be followed at approximately 8:30 by conversation, feasting, and dancing (if we are so “moved”!) If you can’t make the beginning, come when you can and enter the sacred space quietly.

Jewelsong is an eclectic women’s vocal ensemble who share the joy of music through inspirational songs from many different spiritual traditions. Betsy Bickel, Farrunnissa Lila Rosa, Marilyn Grubbs, and Sofianna Sue-Anne Solem have been musicians most of their lives and have been singing together since 2002. They sing regularly at faith gatherings around the Triangle, at the Carrboro Music Festival, and have performed at the NC State Green Party Convention, the NC Dennis Kucinich rally, the “Surrounded By Light” benefit concert for Mark Malachi at the Carrboro ArtsCenter, and as part of the area-wide “Art and the Feminine Divine” project. Jewelsong was honored to be the featured guest artists at the “Passion of the Mother” ArtShine grand opening in 2004. They have composed and/or arranged most of their songs.
