MAY

May 12 - "Awakening to a Full Life"
with Richard Potter
1-4:30pm • $30



Living our everyday lives can often be described as sleepwalking. We are often not aware of what we are doing, thinking, feeling, and experiencing. A major step on the spiritual path is "awakening" - we discover the fact we have been asleep only because we wake up and experience the life we have been missing.

The question of why we have been asleep is complex, but one important factor is what I call the "wanting beast." The wanting beast is the constantly seeking, constantly wanting, never satisfied part of our sleeping consciousness that keeps us preoccupied with fitful dreams and unable to wake up to a full and real life.

In this seminar we will work with a variety of spiritual practices to discover the path to a full life and discovery of our true purpose in life, which is the natural antidote to the "wanting beast."
Richard Potter is a clinical social worker and licensed mental health practitioner. He taught social work at Dana College for 26 years. Richard is also a senior teacher for the Sufi Order International and has been a spiritual guide and teacher for more than three decades. He is the author of Authentic Spirituality: The Direct Path to Consciousness and Spiritual Development for Beginners: A Guide for Leading a Purpose-Filled Life with Jan Potter. Richard has held classes over the years at OM.

May 12 - OM Center Poetry Slam
7:30pm • $7

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.
