Here's what's happening this month...
May 5 - Beyond Awakening: Meditation for Uncertain Times with Vickie @ 7 pm (CAN/US)
An inclusive, online community exploring time-honored practices that connect to resiliency and inner wisdom
Experience a vibrant community of practice to enliven and support your awakening, and strengthen your ability to sustain your practice through the challenges of daily life. These experiential sessions offer time to learn the practices, readings and poetry to inspire us, and space for sharing our experiences and insights. Through both our individual and collective awakening, we can bring much-needed insight and understanding to the complex issues that confront our world. Together, we can tap directly into the infinite intelligence and freedom of the awakened mind.

May 9 - "Perfect Brilliant Stillness" Book Discussion with Johan @ 3 pm EDT (CAN/US)
"It is challenging, triggering, gives me goosebumps, and points to Being, What Is, the Understanding and much more. You will want to say, "I don't 'understand' it at all." and "I get it!" even though there is nothing to understand and no "I" to get it. It will be an encounter of the 3rd kind, the 5th dimension, the nth dimension, the infinite, the eternal, Oneness, ...Perfect... Brilliant... Stillness...! This writing seems to go beyond the Course in Miracles in pointing closer than ever to Awakening; Understanding. " - Johan Koeslag
(Second and fourth Mondays monthly)
May 10 - Sharing the Journey - Making Conscious Choices with Irene @ 2 pm EDT (CAN/US)
Let’s commit to ourselves by joining together.
When we engage in activity, whether in community or solitude, do we experience expansiveness or do we allow our values and our truth to disappear in order to fit in?
(Monthly on the second Tuesday)
May 10 - Seekers Circle Presentation with Karen Weir @ 7 pm EST (CAN/US)
When my son died, I remember my friend/doctor/therapist standing beside me as we looked at Mikkel’s body in the casket, and he said, "What is it you want? Because you are going to have to live with this the rest of your life?" This statement is the premise of what I do. I help those dealing with loss, grief and bereavement define their wants so that they can heal, move forward and find peace in their continued life journeys.
Join me as I share with you “what is loss, grief and bereavement” and how you can heal the loss of self, loved ones and furkids by defining your wants.
(Monthly on the scond Tuesday)

The Self Discovery deck is based on the Spirt Art of Tina Heathers and is used in groups or private one on one sessions to unravel the meaning and opportunities in our present life circumstances.

Written By The Land Special guest - Isabella Mori
How does land communicate? The stream that tumbles down to the lake brings minerals and leaves and little water creatures and oxygen and so many other things, and each of them carries information. Isabella is intrigued by biomimicry, which takes inspiration from living systems for questions in areas such as science, engineering, and economics. Let's explore together how writers are written by the land and become an integral part of this lineage of communication.
Isabella Mori’s poetry and short fiction have appeared in publications such as Presence, Kingfisher and The Group Of Seven Reimagined. Isabella’s books include A bagful of haiku – 87 imperfections. In April, they were a writer-in-residence at Hay Lake Lodge in Ontario’s Algonquin Park. Born in Germany, Isabella has lived in the UK, Paraguay, and Chile, and now resides in Vancouver, BC, on unceded Coast Salish territory, and works in psychiatry.

May 24 - Conversations on Spirituality with Troy @ 7 pm EDT (CAN/US)
Topic: The Existence of God
Many perspectives circulate about the existence of God, and many people are shunned for their beliefs. This month we will explore where we hold common thoughts AND where we differ, with questions like "Does God exist?", "What if we are wrong?", and "Why does it matter?" We look forward to sharing this discussion together and how it will shape our spiritual journey and worldview.
