12-12-12 Meditation and Discussion 
with Sue Moon and Doug D'Arcy

“If you are overly busy in your daily life, you may be dimly aware of the vast changes sweeping our world/consciousness. It is great to gather together during auspicious dates and astrological phenomenon to meditate and reflect on the changes taking place within your life and world. You will get much clarity out of pausing during these times and just being still. The numerology of 12/12/12 will not be repeated again in our lifetime. There is a New Moon in philosophic Sagittarius during this time asking us to plant the seeds of our vision.” - Sue Moon

"I see this time we will be sharing on the 12th as setting intentions for our personnel meditation for December 21st-23rd." - Doug D'Arcy

Mrs. Vijaya Mohan, Rangoli Artist, a Guinneess recorder
Vijaya Mohan started learning Rangoli in Trichy, Tamil Nadu, India, at the age of five at the feet of her mother and used to be so fascinated by Rangoli that she used to try different designs, different mediums and visit neighbours to observe their drawings and try to improve on it even whilst in school.
After marriage she moved to Bombay and here she had a chance to draw Rangoli at big establishments like Shanmukhananda Sabha ( a 3000 seat auditorium) for a big audience, President’s Hotel for Japanese tourists, Nehru Planeterium, Dharma Kshetra, Mitra Mandals (Community Centres) etc.
Rangoli, a folk art from India is made of decorative designs on the floors of living rooms and courtyards during Hindu festivals. They are meant to be sacred welcoming areas for the Hindu deities. The patterns are typically created with materials, including colored rice, dry flour,(colored) sand or even flower petals.


Vijaya’s Motto: “Use your fingers as your paint brushes , the floor as your canvas and enter the Wonderful World of Rangoli”

 "Freedom from Body Memory"  
FREE Talk with Jonathan Tripodi
 
From his Awakening to Body Memory in Part I through the fascinating science and case studies in Part II, Jonathan illuminates a healing path that is missed in traditional medicine and therapy that ultimately transforms body memory and accumulated stress, which in turn enables individuals to manifest positive changes in their body and life that were previously considered impossible. Uncover the secrets of body memory and how one’s unconscious hold on the past is the invisible source of pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and repetitive life experiences.

For almost two decades Jonathan has explored body memory and its relationship to chronic pain, stress, illness and behavior. His Body Memory Recall - BMR - approach has supported thousands of individuals to heal old wounds and experience renewed states of health, vitality, and function. His approach to therapeutic bodywork supports one to come out of survival mode and surrender to one's self healing intelligence.
In so doing, a person can release accumulated stress, fear and pain from past experiences, and actualize renewed states of health, vitality, inner peace and joy. www.freedomfrombodymemory.com

Intro to Body Memory Recall
with Jonathan Tripodi
A healthy, vital body is one that is free of the past. Old injuries, emotions, and fears are often stored within the body causing stress, tension, and restriction within the tissues. Body Memory Recall is a form of hands-on healing that integrates gentle forms of touch, pressure, and stretch to release old body memories and their associated body tensions. BMR significantly improves your health and function. For many, BMR has proven to be pivotal for creating lasting change.

For almost two decades Jonathan Tripodi has explored body memory and its relationship to chronic pain, stress, illness and behavior. His BMR approach has supported thousands of individuals to heal old wounds and experience renewed states of health, vitality, and function. His approach to therapeutic bodywork supports one to come out of survival mode and surrender to one's self-healing intelligence. In so doing, a person can release accumulated stress, fear, and pain from past experiences, and actualize renewed states of health, vitality, inner peace, and joy.

BMR Healing Intensives w/Jonathan

To best assist others to achieve new levels of healing, freedom and vitality, Jonathan has created the BMR Healing Intensive. His 20 years of experience has shown him that people have accumulated body memory over a lifetime and they need concentrated support and healing energy to breakthrough lifelong patterns of tension and the habit to suppress rather than express - especially emotion. The format of a BMR Healing Intensive is 1.5 hours of BMR in the morning and 1.0 hours of BMR in the afternoon, for 5 or 10 days. For those who may be limited in time and resources, there is also the 3 day mini intensive. Jonathan provides BMR Healing Intensives throughout the year at various sites across the United States. To schedule sessions or for further information, email Jonathan: Jonathan@FreedomFromBodyMemory.com

Perfumeman
A House Concert (NOT AT OM)

Otis Twelve and Sandy Aquila of the OM Center are collaborating to bring  an exciting new series of "House Concerts/ Music & Art" events to Lookinglass and Milk Studio.  The first act to begin this journey is "Perfumeman" a self described  pre-music, post-something pop duo. Complex yet oddly accessible melodic vocals, sharp cello loops, driving bass beats, and the occasional scream punctuate Perfumeman’s music. They sing of love, exorcism, gender bending, and not worrying. The layers of cello combined with Charles’ crooning voice give Perfumeman a deep texture like a dank echoing cavernous hole in the earth..."
Lookinglass and Milk itself is a home, a working studio, and an experience all its own...Located near Hanscom Park, the wood floors and 16 ft. tin ceilings offer a perfect environment for a true, intimate house concert experience.
This, the first gathering of friends, will mark the beginning of a series of experiences that we hope will enrich all of our lives, as friends... as fellow travelers... as folks just plain in love with smart music and art on the edge.
EMAIL Reservations are required... NOTE: NOT AT OM Concert will be at Lookinglass and Milk Studio
Send your name and the number of spots you want to reserve to:
lookinglass12@cox.net Space is limited so do not delay. This is a cooperative effort by friends, including you of course, and donations are suggested of $10 to $20 per spot. It's a voluntary, sliding scale that lets all of our friends 
help us keep the spirit of the space alive... Come and hang out...

OM Center Poetry Slam
What is a poetry Slam?
It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment, sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment. Poets will read, then judges will flash Olympic-style scoring to determine who goes on to the next round until there's just one poet left standing as the champion. It's a lot of fun!

Hosted by Matt Mason. Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the featured performer and the slam; sign up BEFORE 7:30 as signup is limited and will only be allowed after 7:30 if less than 8 are in the slam.

Family and Systems Constellations w/Larry Kessler 
This powerful evening will  enrich your experience of the weekend as you access the ancestors, heal entanglements with them, and help others to find the love in their families.
Family constellations reveal the past wrongs, suffering, and entanglements in our families—even generations in the past--and their effects on our lives now. The constellations resolve these issues and allow the soul to move towards peace and understanding.
 

In a Family Constellation, a person chooses others from the group to stand in for family members. Surprisingly, these representatives feel what the people for whom they are standing felt. The stresses on the family system can then come to light and be resolved. When this happens, the love hidden in the system begins to flow and a deep sense of wholeness follows.

Eventually, four of the musicians formed Crackin’, which recorded for both MGM/Polydor and Warner Brother Records.

All went on to have major success stories in the world music scene as producers, songwriters and performers in their own right. Collectively, they’ve worked with artists like Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Al Jarreau, Bette Midler, Bonnie Raitt, Gladys Knight, Don Henley, Peter Frampton, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton, Patti LaBelle, Smokey Robinson, B.B. King, Mannheim Steamroller, Alison Krauss and The Doobie Brothers.

The stories around these musicians reflects an important time in Omaha’s racial and musical history. The bonds formed through their shared musical experience have endured through the years. These stories and their music will be presented in this exciting retrospective and musical evening.
