All welcome, no previous training needed!

is an acupuncturist and a Tibetan Buddhist monk.
As a Westerner, he is able to bridge the gap between East and West. Dr. Bole received a Ph.D. in
Psychology from the University of Florida and a Doctor of Acupuncture from the College of
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture in Oxford, England. Dr. Bole was the founder and President

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. ________________________________________________________________________________

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”
