Open Meditation : Peace in a World of War

This month's meditation coincides with an event organized by the Columbus Burma Task Force, a group seeking to protect the Muslim minority in Burma. I think it's important to hold our meditation space regularly, so I am not canceling this month's session. I would like us to practice in solidarity with those suffering in this crisis. Let's reflect on how our own fear grows sometimes into anger and how to best express our anger fully but without violence. Let's also be aware that no identity (i.e. "Buddhist") is immune to the poisons of greed, hatred, and delusion.

Rather than collecting donations for rent and studio expenses, we'll collect for an aid organization helping Muslims in Burma. (not yet chosen)

Feel free to attend the Columbus Burma Task Force education event instead: 1:00pm at First UU. https://www.facebook.com/events/479685635458090/

*As we have in the past, we will sit for two 20/25 minute sessions with quiet walking in between. We will have time for every participant to talk before and after. Then we'll have tea! Those new to meditation are welcome to join and participate as much as they feel comfortable. If you've never sat in silence in community before, come on time and ask questions.

*PARENTS: I (Seth) do not currently have care set up for my kids. I'd love to work something out so we can share the responsibility. I'd be happy to have kids if another person was willing to lead the session. Send me a message (seth.josephson@gmail.com, or fb, or at 614-499-3350). I want to help make sure this quiet practice is accessible to parents!

Trance Studies: Green Tara II

By all accounts, the June 2nd experiment with the Tara trance was a success. Many people had powerful visions and were moved to tears. Others felt they received specific messages about what they needed in their lives. Because of it's power, we're going to do the same practice a second time.

Not a part of Felicitas Goodman's repertoire for trance-work, Tara is a female goddess (or, more accurately, Bodhisattva) rooted in the Tantric Buddhist tradition. Susan has worked often with the Tara figure personally and with students.

As in the past, we will have two sessions of the Cuyamungue trance. Each consists of a particular posture and the sound of a gourd rattle. Through a particular style of concentration, participants can "ride" the rattle into an aware, dream-like experience of an "alternate reality." We will have an introduction beforehand and a discussion of our experiences afterward.

The first session will be the Singing Shaman posture, which incorporates vocalization (useful for "opening the door"), and the second will be the Green Tara posture. If you find a chance to collect your intentions, come with a personal question for Tara.

We take an experimental approach to trance studies, not a dogmatic one. Open-minded people of all word-views are welcome. Find out what's useful for your practice.

*Young adults / teens welcome.

*Instructions for participation: Please arrive on time, the door will be closed at 7:15 so that the session can begin without interruption. Fasting will enhance the experience, but is not required. For best results, do not eat at least 30 minutes prior to the session. Avoid alcohol throughout the day. Wear loose-fitting clothing and avoid wearing metal.

*Susan is not expecting payment so this session is by donation. Feel free to contribute to her visit and the maintenance of the studio space with a small contribution.

Endurance Noise

Milwaukee Noise Musicians Peter J Woods and Neil Gravender are currently touring with three different projects and an intention to perform three shows in each city they go to. Because... they are wild and crazy guys.

In Columbus, they will be doing two out of the three, cuz we're a little more mild around here.


We're looking for locals and will post more details soon. But mark your calendars! It'll be epic and weird!
