Potluck with Purpose & Gift Circle

February 4, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - Event Details

In February, Marilyn Sterling will lead a fun variation on the Gift Circle regarding the gifts of service we can offer each other.

As always we start with delicious food and company, so bring a dish or drink and come on over to enjoy conversation and inspiration from others who value living more lightly on the earth. The Gift Circle begins around 7:30 pm. $5 helps pay for the venue…

The church provides plates, utensils and even a (rather old and funky) oven for warming things, as well as a gas stove.

In March we have a special treat led by Loni Gray: The Dream Pond. Please go here to read what you need to do to prepare for it. The more people who come in March the more powerful the exercise, so please tell your friends and join us.

New to our Dream Catcher Project? 

Dream_Pond_Series_by_schladyWe sometimes dismiss the things that are most special to us personally as less important, as we go about the “busy-ness” of our lives. But please do not make light of your dreams! What you do for yourself amplifies into an energy that fills our community. In the big picture, we all need each other to be doing the thing that most lights our fire. So do this simply because YOU deserve the gift. Here are the instructions to prepare for tonight – START NOW! (more…)

Grand Opening! Transition Albany Library

(Event Sponsored by Transition Albany)
January 27, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - Event Details

albanyArtsGallery-02A warmly-lit gallery full of beautiful, locally-made usefulness and art, live music from Stephen and Andrey, good stuff to eat and drink – and probably the largest collection of books on the subject of “why” and “how” we can transition to a satisfying lifestyle that works for the planet that you’ve ever seen – what’s not to like?!

Drop in and get your library pass and check out the titles. You can also see what we have here.

The way it works is that you need a library pass to borrow books, and to get a library pass you need to sign a waiver for the Art Gallery and give us your contact information. So if you come by on Monday evening, you can get both done at the same time, while hanging out with some cool people and enjoying some good eats. See you there!

Feng Shui Astrology: Your Key to Harmonious Relationships!

(Event Sponsored by Transition Albany )

multicultural-children-playing-peace-17817012Happy Year of the Horse!

To start the New Year, Transition Albany offers a class on 9 Star Ki basics focusing on energetic relationships. This particular lens will show you a frame from which to view your relationships with others and the world. How is this relevant to Transition Albany’s goals?  I’m claiming that without something like 9 Star Ki as a tool to help you see the world around you, any collaborative work becomes more complex and challenging. I’m sure we all have stories to tell on this issue.

So…

If you’re like the rest of us, you have relationships that invigorate you, inspire you,  drain you, turn your hair gray, make you want to run away from it, and/or put you into conniption fits. The emotional roller coaster that some relationships put us through can leave us wanting to take a vacation from humans!

Wish navigating the world of relationships were simpler, right?

It can be. A bit. (Habits die hard.)

This class can help. If you’re inclined to give it a go.
