Plus! Keirsten Hill-Douglas & Larry Bach 3-4pm Live! Free

So, a rabbi and a nanny walk into a bar…and they start to sing. :)
Keirsten Hill-Douglass and Larry Bach started playing together in January of 2016. They met via the world wide web when Keirsten posted an ad seeking a guitarist to help her finish a song she’d written. From their first practice a set list of well loved songs ranging from Bob Dylan to Amy Winehouse started to form, and a space to create new music together was made. While leaving room for as many new songs to be created as possible, these two also have one main goal at every show or open mic that they play…and that’s to make everyone in the room say at least once “Man, I LOVE that song”.
Larry is a rabbi, husband and dad who looks for the connection between inner life and the world of action. Keirsten is a nanny, student of psychology, and lover of all things related to health and wellness. https://soundcloud.com/klacousticvoice

Reopening Our Hearts After the Pain
with author and Oasis founder Robert Roskind

Pain, in all it’s myriad of forms (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, etc.) can cause us to close off our hearts in the hope that they will not be broken again. Or we can blame others, ourselves, our Creator, or a random universe. When we do this, we fail to understand the inherent gifts and growth in the pain – as a blessed event on our soul’s journey called in to open – not close – our hearts, to reveal our attachments, fears and illusions. Simple but never easy! This evening will be part presentation by Robert and part open sharing.

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.

Retrain the Stress Response to Bring More Peace to Your Life with Eden Energy Medicine
with Mary Grigsby

Our bodies and brains are hardwired for negativity and fear. It is what has kept us alive for millennia. And, thanks in part to that hard work our society has evolved to a place where most of us are not faced with life or death circumstances on a daily basis. Yet our bodies still respond as though we are. In this interactive presentation you will learn hands on tools to retrain your being to be less reactive to the normal stress of life. Calming this part of us allows for more peace and ease.
Mary is a Certified Clinical Practitioner of Energy Medicine and a psychotherapist in private practice in Durham.   She is passionate about spreading the word about the many benefits of energy medicine and our ability to improve our health and lives.

Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie: Seven Years in the Counterculture LIVE!! FREE! A one-man play by author and Oasis founder Robert Roskind, Set to the music of the era!

The counterculture of the 60s and 70s has been viewed as everything from naive to hedonistic. However, most of these views were formed by observing the movement from the outside. “Memoirs of an Ex-Hippie” offers a vastly different perspective, one developed from within. After graduating college in 1968, Robert Roskind hit the road for seven years. Roskind’s travels lead him into the heart of the counterculture–to Esalen Institute, Tassajara Hot Springs, Big Sur, Vancouver Island, the communes of Oregon and North Carolina, Altamont Pop Festival, Mt. Shasta, the Haight-Ashbury and the “motherland”–Northern California. His personal odyssey, sometimes profane and funny, sometimes profound and serious, reveals this tumultuous era as a cultural and spiritual renaissance that birthed many of the solutions to problems humanity now faces.

ME & ALICIARobert 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.

Muningo LIVE! FREE!

Muningu is an exciting, young band whose path has taken them from their homeland of Brazzaville, the Republic of Congo to the triangle area of North Carolina. Muningu features four accomplished musicians; Emmanuel Nsingani (bass/guitar/vocals), Elie Mabanza (guitar/vocals), Lohd Sermon Kaboudianzambi (drums), and Obed Nathan Mbasi (keyboards/vocals). Founded in 2012, the group quickly made a name for itself, performing on television (Congo Vibes) and at national and international music festivals including FESPAM and La Fête de la Musique. They also partnered with UNESCO, Biso Na Biso, The French Cultural Center and the US Embassy, and between bigger venues, performed regularly at clubs and luxury hotels in and around Brazzaville.

In the fall of 2014 they decided to bring their captivating fusion beats to the US. In their first seven months in the Raleigh, NC area they have recorded a new demo CD entitled “New Beginnings”, and have been introducing themselves through performances at local clubs in Raleigh and Durham, NC. “Muningu” means melody in Lari, one of the many languages spoken in the Congo. Muningu’s eclectic style reflects their diverse backgrounds and features songs in French, English, Lingala and Lari. Their music combines a strong flavor of traditional folkloric Congolese with elements of rock, pop, latin, jazz, R&B, and world music, creating a distinct, modern sound. Their songs are so melodic, you will find yourself singing along even if you don’t know (or understand) the words.

Muningu’s songs are often fueled by the social and humanitarian concerns that are serious issues in central Africa, by a strong love of their homeland, and by their honest convictions about human rights. Yet their optimistic lyrics always include messages of faith, hope and love, and celebrate the resiliency of the human heart. Their three-part singing is uplifting and joyous, full of the intricate harmonies and the danceable rhythms of their native Africa. Dedicated to creating and performing music that builds bridges, connecting all people, Muningu is bringing their exuberance, ambition, and raw talent to the United States for the first time. You won’t want to miss them. http://muningu.wix.com/muningu
