Healing Meditation for the Planet with Barbara Janeway
Barbara Janeway leads a Prayer/Meditation group at The Oasis, this Thursday evening from 7 to 8 p.m. This is an ‘action through prayer’ gathering, in which we begin with a centering journey into the love in our hearts. Then we name the planetary issues that concern us and follow with a period of silent meditation, in which each person can meditate or pray in their own way. Together we are creating a strong field of intention and holding love for the Earth and all of us beings who live here.
Friday April 18 7:00-9:30pm
Movies That Matter/Spiritual Cinema
The Little Buddha
Lama Norbu comes to Seattle in search of the reincarnation of his dead teacher, Lama Dorje. His search leads him to young Jesse Conrad, Raju, a waif from Kathmandu, and an upper class Indian girl. Together, they journey to Bhutan where the three children must undergo a test to prove which is the true reincarnation. Interspersed with this, is the story of Siddharta, later known as the Buddha. It traces his spiritual journey from ignorance to true enlightenment. This is an incredible movie that will leave you in a very peaceful and positive state of mind and heart.
Saturday April 19 7:00-10:00pm (music begins around 8)
Live Reggae & Soul with Gregory Blaine & Dolie Chandler
Gregory and Dolie have become our “house musicians,” performing often. Why? Because the audience loves them and their music is transcendental – that is it assists us in transcending our stress, egos and fears and takes us into a very peaceful place. You will definitely leave more centered and peaceful. It’s an awesome evening of One Love music and vibes! “I’ve been do’n my current musical focus for about 10 years,” says Gregory.. “Our sound is Raw, Honest, Emotionally Driven, and always evolving. It’s purposeful soul learn’n to self love and acccept it’s Wholeness and Innocence Pure. I know how to speak for what I need, I know what I want musically, and will not be moved from that place. I love bring’n different players to performances!”

The Oasis is located in downtown Carrboro inside the Carr Mill Mall (behind Weaver Street Market between Elmo’s and Panzanella). With its 14-foot ceilings, polished wood floors, handcrafted decor, large windows and double glass doors opening into the broad hallway, it is one of the most beautiful and uplifting gathering spots in the area. In addition to tables and cushioned chairs, there is seating on pillows on the floor of a raised-platform area (shoes-optional). And yes there is plenty of free on-site parking and wifi!
During the daytime hours, The Oasis operates as a traditional coffee/cafe/tea/wine lounge, serving the finest organic coffee, teas, and wines, and delicious pastries, and vegetarian meals. Come alone or with friends and enjoy the relaxing environment.
At night, The Oasis transforms into an environment of entertainment, connections and inspiration. Several nights a week, we host free presentations (7:00-8:00pm) on life-affirming topics (holistic health, environmental issues, indigenous wisdom, sustainability, etc.) where like-minded people can gather. On weekend nights we have Spiritual Cinema Night and live acoustic music with local and regional artists. All our events are free.
