Sunday, October 22
Guest Speaker: Darrell Jones
Talk Title: Your Spiritual Diet: · Nutrient Rich or Empty Calories?
Inspiration from Philippians 4:8 "Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence · and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.· Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you."
Also Thich Nhat Hanh from No Mud, No Lotus "The way we start producing the medicine of mindfulness is by stopping and taking a conscious breath, giving our complete attention to our in-breath and our out-breath.· When we stop and take a breath in this way, we unite body and mind and come back home to ourselves.· We feel our bodies more fully.· We are truly alive only when the mind is with the body.· The great news is that oneness of body and mind can be realized just by one in-breath."

Rooted in Peace - a new film released for screening by Beyond Words Publishing
Director and award-winning filmmaker Greg Reitman invites viewers on a film journey to take notice of the world we live in, proactively seek ways to find personal and ecological peace, and stop the cycle of violence. The film relies not only on memoir but also interviews with such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love, and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, media mogul Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, green architect William McDonough, neuroscientist Dan Siegel, and many others. Reitman learns from all of them and heeds Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s words that if the forest is to be green, every tree must be green; if there’s going to be peace on earth, then everybody needs to experience that quality of peace within themselves. And so in asking viewers to do the same, Reitman poses the basic question: How do we want to live?
Reitman’s journey is an example of transformation—how one person can learn to make the necessary changes to enjoy a better life, and in so doing, inspire others to want to improve their own lives and society as a whole.
