NEW!!! Organic Kava, Smoothies, Kambucha, & Fresh-squeezed Lemonade!
We are now serving Kava!
The healthy, natural alternative to alcohol and prescription drugs!
Kava, a wondrous plant called “the root of happiness,” produces tranquility and relaxation without the side effects of alcohol. For centuries, it has been used in the South Pacific Islands, medicinally, ceremonially, and recreationally. Kava calms as well as focuses the mind. Unlike alcohol, it is neither addictive nor a depressant. The best effect of kava is simply the sociability as it makes you feel more comfortable and more talkative. We also carry kava paste, extract, and single-serving take-home 6-packs.
Avoid if breastfeeding or pregnant and not to be consumed with alcohol.

The Wisdom & Prophecies of the Hopis
with Hopi Elder Radford Quamahongnewa (via video footage) and Robert Roskind (live). (Pic is of Radford with Tibetan Elder Garchan Rinpoche.)
For almost 50 years, Radford has been the “eyes, ears and tongue” of the spiritual leaders of Sipaulovi – the mother village of the Hopis of Arizona. The Hopis are the modern day “Covenant People,” striving to become “Hopi” – “All People Peaceful” – so that humankind will have an imprint in it’s consciousness of one tribe, one society, living in peace. Radford is also the traditional snake priest, dancing with a live rattlesnake in his mouth and one in each hand. Radford was my collaborator for my book, The Beauty Path: A Native American Journey Into One Love, and he has much to say about the Hopi wisdom and prophecies. Join us for the magical evening!
Robert Roskind is the author of twelve books including Rasta Heart: A Journey into One Love, The Beauty Path: A Native American Journey into One Love, The Gathering of the Healers, In the Spirit of Marriage and In the Spirit of Business. He is also the producer of a record-breaking PBS series and the organizer of over 200 One Love Events in the U.S. and Jamaica. He lives in Carrboro and operates the Oasis.

How Astrology helps you to better know yourself
All of us would like to know ourselves better.
Astrology can help you do this with Barbel Besseyre
Barbel Besseyre, international astrologer, will introduce you to Astrology using the four angles of an astrological chart. These four angles represent the cornerstones of your life
and it is through them that you meet the outside world with a clearer understanding. The first angle is the Ascendant or your Rising Sign and it is your identity projection. The next is the root of your chart, called the Nadir. These are your family roots, your home and emotional roots. The third angle is the Descendant, where relationships are emphasized. The last, and equally important, is Midheaven, the pinnacle of your chart, your contact with the public at large and your career and vocation.
Attendees for this talk will create their own Solar Chart with these four angles in mind.
Whether you’re a Taurus or a Sagittarius, we’ll learn together to tell your story and visualize where things have and will happen in your life. Come and join Barbel, who studied in France with masters, has practiced astrology for 23 years and is giving astrology workshops and classes in Chapel Hill. Go to her website www.YourStarsAreYou.com and enjoy travelling among the planets.
Friday May 1 7:00-9:00pm
I AM is an utterly engaging and entertaining non-fiction film that poses two practical and provocative questions: what’s wrong with our world, and what can we do to make it better? The filmmaker behind the inquiry is Tom Shadyac, one of Hollywood’s leading comedy practitioners and the creative force behind such blockbusters as “Ace Ventura,” “Liar Liar,” “The Nutty Professor,” and “Bruce Almighty.” However, in I AM, Shadyac steps in front of the camera to recount what happened to him after a cycling accident left him incapacitated, possibly for good. Though he ultimately recovered, he emerged with a new sense of purpose, determined to share his own awakening to his prior life of excess and greed, and to investigate how he as an individual, and we as a race, could improve the way we live and walk in the world.
