Nicotine Bees

November 8 @ 2:00 pm - Event Details

Bees everywhere are struggling to survive widely used systemic pesticides – neonicotinoids or “neonics” – that not only damage their nervous systems but make them addicts. Sound familiar? Most of our food relies, directly or indirectly, on pollination by bees, so this affects us all.

Come and get educated so we can all take effective action. A ban on neonicotinoids in Europe saw an immediate rebound in bee populations.

LETTING GO OF GRIEF – A Ritual with Sobonfu Somé & Carol Cano

September 20 @ 9:30 am - Event Details
with Sobonfu Somé and Carol Cano
Highly recommended: this a transformational and soul-invigorating workshop, designed to break through our cultural barriers to grief. I have taken this workshop several times and it helps me clear a backlog of grief – about the state of the world, losses I have sustained – and face the future more clearly.

In the traditional world of the Dagara of Burkina Faso West Africa, the ritual of grief, conducted almost daily in different parts of the tribe, is the Dagara people’s way of releasing the tension caused by loss and of restoring continuity in their relationships. We will enter into the ritual space of grief following the traditional model of the Dagara.

Please follow this link for complete information about this event, including instructions on what to bring and how to get to Spirit Rock Meditation Center in the North Bay.

This event is a Benefit for the Spirit Rock Diversity Program. We welcome adults of all races, religions, and sexual orientations. This program is not suitable for children.
