At Shine Restaurant's Gathering Place
2027 13th St, Boulder, CO
This Sunday, Nov. 16th we dive into our "Being Wholeness" theme with Andy the Potion Maker's alchemical, magical Wholeness activity...
The activity involves big flashes of light and physical objects disappearing mid-air. Really, it does! Does it get any better than that on a Sunday morning? ;)
For those of you who don't know, there's a guy named Andy who creates all of Shine's potions - delicious and soulful drinks that have healing intention in them. Andy the Potion Maker! He is one of the sweetest, wisest people you will ever meet - a real, humble and true healing presence. And he's joining us for our Gather this Sunday to facilitate an activity (although after experiencing it myself, I would call it a magical, alchemical Being Wholeness joy ride, it was that powerful and that much fun), to help us each experience what it is to embody wholeness from the inside out.
When we experience wholeness rather than separation in the world, it translates to experiencing wholeness within our selves as well. And who doesn't want more of that? We all have those places that we judge or feel shame about or want to hide or run from. But boy oh boy, "not judging" is easier said than done. What I love about the alchemical activity that Andy will facilitate is that you don't have to artificially try to jump to accepting something, in yourself or in the world, when you really don't feel that way. You get to feel exactly how you feel without changing a thing, and at the same time you get to experience more wholeness.
Join us for this Sunday's fun and meaningful Gather, plus stay for yummy Shine brunch afterward is you like! We open and close with our regular Sacred House practices, and Andy's guest sharing is the "main course" in between.
Weekly Sunday Gathers are sacred events to connect with our divine selves, with each other and with something larger that connects us all. We do this through guided meditation, song, silence, meaningful ceremonies or activities, thoughtful time for prayer and blessing, and we also bring in guest speakers for once-monthly learning talks. After our Gather, we enjoy each other's company and conversation over yummy brunch in the Shine Restaurant.
The Gather itself starts at 11:15 am and goes to 12:30 pm. Please arrive between 11:00 and 11:15 am so that we can start promptly at 11:15. A donation amount of your choice is greatly appreciated. When you arrive at Shine, head to the back room which is the Gathering Place, and that's where you'll find Sacred House. Seating is provided, or bring a pillow if you like to sit on the floor. Dress is casual and comfortable.
After the Gather we head out into the restaurant to socialize and eat together from Shine's delicious brunch menu. The charge for brunch is based on what you pick from the menu! Shine offers local, organic, holistic comfort food made from the heart, and they also make these amazing, magical non-alcoholic potions that are yummy and good for your soul. They work directly with farmers and host numerous events that support community. Their goal: When you support Shine, you support local community. Here's the link to view Shine's brunch menu, and here's a link to the page on their site that talks about the heart and soul behind their food & drink.
AND, there is also a morning yoga class at Shine at 10:00 am, before our Gather - with wonderful instructor Liz Clough. If you want, you can do the triple play - come for yoga, then the Gather, then brunch!
