Friday October 24 7:00-9:00pm
Movies-That Matter/ Spiritual Cinema
Taking Root tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into a nationwide movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy—a movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration.
Taking Root is the most comprehensive, in-depth film about Wangari Maathai available. It was made in close collaboration with her during the last decade of her life.

JEWELSONG LIVE! (Music begins around 8pm)
Fundraiser for Chapel Hill Unity Center of Peace
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.

Open with great food and drink and a relaxing vibe!
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. (The Oasis is also available to rent for presentations, meetings, workshops, parties, etc.)
