The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking is a collection of sacred wisdom inspired by an encounter between James Twyman and Jeshua ben Joseph, also known as Jesus, at Israel’s Dead Sea in 2003. The lessons are said to be the inner teachings Jeshua offered to his closest disciples 2,000 years ago, revealing secrets of living in the world as illumined beings. As a former Internet course, these lessons enjoyed international acclaim, with tens of thousands of students around the world putting the powerful principles into action. The collection offers 33 lessons on opening and revealing each individual’s Illumined Mind, Awakened Heart and Realized Soul — The Three Enlightenments. Jeshua suggests that each of the 33 lessons be read and practiced for three days apiece, accompanied by the 365 Daily Spiritual Peacemaking Lessons over the course of one year. Through this course, Jeshua promises that the seeker will be able to penetrate the veil separating the world of illusions and the Real World. In short, The Art of Spiritual Peacemaking is a direct and simple path to illumination.

Bernie Sanders for President Organizing event
Bernie’s addressed will be shown live at 7:30pm via internet.
Given that both previously scheduled meetings here at The Oasis at Carr Mill Mall filled quickly, I have decided to merge them to one meeting and move it to the Carrboro Farmer’s Market area (behind the Carrboro Town Hall 301 West Main St Carrboro 27510). It has a large covered area in case of rain and we will set up a screen and PA system to show Bernie’s speech. Also, there will be a follow up logistical meeting immediately following at the Oasis at Carr Mill Mall (about three blocks down Weaver St. in Carr Mill behind Weaver Street Market). The market area holds 1000+ so tell everyone just to come – no need to pre-register!!

Song of the New Earth was number 3 in Huffington Posts recent Top 10 list of the most heartwarming films of 2014!
An award winning film presents the extraordinary life of Tom Kenyon, a country singer turned brain scientist and sound shaman. Song of the New Earth follows Kenyon’s journey from the stage on Broadway, to giant caves in the south of France, the golden-chandeliered symphony halls of Vienna and finally to the snowy peaks of Tibet, performing with the unique – almost four octave range – voice which has earned him a worldwide following.
Tom Kenyon was on his way to fame as a country singer in Nashville when he began to experience uninvited paranormal states of consciousness. His quest to understand these experiences sent him on a journey into Tibetan Buddhism, Yoga, mystical Christianity, Shamanism, the Taoism of China, and Egyptian alchemy. But spirituality did not give him all the answers he needed, and he turned to science. He discovered that neurophysiology had a language that could help explain his mystical experiences. After qualifying as a psychotherapist – in part, he admits, to find out if he was going crazy – he spent years studying the effects of sound and music on the human brain and nervous system and is now an internationally recognized authority on the science of sound.
The film explores in depth the cutting edge scientific research which proves that sound shifts brain states and promotes dramatic healing. Song of the New Earth presents not only Tom Kenyon’s extraordinary journey but also an unforgettable experience with sound. Regardless of a your religion or belief system, Song of the New Earth informs, inspires, and provides an extraordinary opportunity to experience how sound and music can be powerful medicine for ourselves and our world.
