This week at the Oasis! Details at “Evening Music & Presentations”
All Our Events Are Free!.
Until they were invaded by European conquerors, all Native American societies were based on three truths – we are all One with our Creator, one with our brothers and sisters, and one with the Earth. From this mindset they created societies that brought out the best in humanity. They were co-operative and love-based. The mindset of the conquerors – a mindset that now dominates the planet – is the opposite and based on three lies – we are separate from our Creator, from all our brothers and sisters and from the Earth. This world perspective brings out the worst in us as leads to the fractured world we have been sent here to heal through our love. As we heal this misconception within our own minds and hearts, our lives enter a mystical stream of energy that is the inheritance of every human – lovingly given to us by the Great Spirit. 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.

A Video Evening with Andrew Harvey
This is not live but rather a video of well-known author and futurist Andrew Harvey presenting his “Sever Stars” that are now in place and that will make a transformation to a love-based planet a reality. These “Stars” include the global crises as the impetus for change, the rise of women and the feminine principal out of the dungeon of the patriarchy, the availability of clean, free, renewable energy, the validity of non-violence to free the oppressed, the availability of all true spiritual paths, the Internet as a global consciousness, and the dawning truth that it is our Creator’s will to awaken to our own Divinity at this time. The night will change your life. Join us if you feel guided!
Andrew Harvey is Founder Director of the Institute of Sacred Activism, an international organization focused on inviting concerned people to take up the challenge of our contemporary global crises by becoming inspired, effective, and practical agents of institutional and systemic change, in order to create peace and sustainability. Sacred Activism is a transforming force of compassion-in-action that is born of a fusion of deep spiritual knowledge, courage, love, and passion, with wise radical action in the world. The large-scale practice of Sacred Activism can become an essential force for preserving and healing the planet and its inhabitants.

REINVENTING OURSELVES: THE NEXT BLESSED CHAPTER with Robert Roskind
In today’s fast changing environments we are being called on to constantly learn and grow and to often go through life-changing events that cause us to have to reinvent ourselves. Sometimes these events are pleasurable like a spiritual awakening, the birth of a child, meeting a mate, beginning your life work. Other times they are painful involving a physical, financial, spiritual, or relationship “crisis.” In either case, these are the milestone markers on our path – in fact they are our path – and they are all for our highest good. As a veteran of countless, reinventions, Robert will discuss how to navigate these life changes with calm and clarity – no matter how intense they might appear.
