Theatre For Living ‘Home’ Performance Follow Up Gathering & potluck lunch
Jan 27 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm

If you left the performance of šxʷʔam̓ ət (home) wondering where we go from here, please join us on January 27, 2018 from 12 to 4:00 for a facilitated discussion. This is a wonderful and meaningful opportunity to come together to debrief, to discuss and to go forward from our experience as an audience in this interactive play. Truth and Reconciliation is a process; the creating of a healing path for all the
People of Canada. It’s an opportunity to learn from one another and to walk towards Liberation
from our painful past and to move forward out of continued inequality and racism. All who
attended the play are welcome. There is no charge and coffee and tea are provided. We will all
enjoy a potluck lunch together at 12:00 so bring something to share.

One World Meditation & Chanting gathering – Initial Planning meeting
Jan 27 @ 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm

In this time of global uncertainty and unrest, people have been expressing a desire for group meditative
space for healing and wholeness. The Taize silent atmosphere has been one way to
meet that need for those with a Christian orientation.The planning meeting will
explore ways to create a quiet, focused unity that incorporates chants and readings from diverse faith
traditions. With this inclusive content, the objective is to transform the present Taize service into a One
World Meditation and Chanting gathering.

Centred on Spiritual Maturity – a retreat
Feb 9 @ 4:00 pm – Feb 11 @ 1:00 pm

Led by Christopher Wulff

Building on the work of Rev. Dr. Kendyl Gibbons, 2015’s Religious Humanist of
the Year, spiritual maturity is about those places of faith and practice where we find ourselves
growing more able to encounter what is real instead of living in fantasy; to acknowledge and accept
our own limitations; to know wonder, blessing and generosity; and, to offer radical, active and
compassionate love for ourselves and others. Working through the twelve elements of spiritual
maturity, we will find wisdom, comfort and challenge in other spiritual and religious traditions, as well
as in our own intuition, experience and UU practices.
