Dances of Universal Peace
Free Event
December 10, 2017
6-7:30 pm
People worldwide yearning for Unity have found in the Dances of Universal Peace a renewing and inspiring spiritual practice that brings us face to face with Life and Truth, beyond concepts and beliefs.

Moving in the moment while singing sacred phrases, mantras and poetry of the myriad of spiritual traditions that grace the Earth. The dances open us to remembrance of the natural human state -- unguarded, authentic and free. They continue to be, (as the originator, Samuel Lewis envisioned) “a way to generate life-energy and the peace that passes all understanding.”

The First Thanksgiving
The First Thanksgiving, 1621, Plymouth, Massachusetts
Here are some interesting historical footnotes from Board President, Pasha MacGregor, née Priscilla Davidson, shared with the encouragement of Nikki Spencer.
Who was there? The 56 Pilgrims who had survived the first winter in New England. (50 had perished) The survivors included my ancestor and namesake, Priscilla Mullens and her future husband John Alden. Squanto, a Pawtuxet who had mentored the English settlers in effective New World agricultural practices, was present for the celebration. The guests were Chief Massasoit, his brother Quadequina, and 88 other members of the Wampanoag Tribe.
What did they eat? Roast duck, roast goose, and a “great store of wild Turkies”. (However, the word “Turkies” in 17th century English was used in a broad sense—it may or may not have referred to the bird we now call turkey.) Fifteen young boys were sent to gather wild cranberries from the bogs. The menu also included lobster and clams, leeks and watercress, corn and squash. For dessert there were dried berries and bitter wild plums. (Pumpkin pie and whipped cream came much later.) The guests contributed venison and popcorn. Legend has it that Quadequina brought several deerskin bags of popcorn, already popped.
How do we know? Governor William Bradford, wrote a chronicle called “Of Plimouth Plantation” which traced the history of the Pilgrims from 1620 to 1647. This is the primary source of information about the first Thanksgiving.

My 9 times great grandmother Priscilla, a teenager at the time, was one of 6 women who prepared the meal. I’m so glad we have potlucks now! I will be pleased to do my part.

The Four Viharas and the Eightfold Path to Peace- 
Meditation workshop
Presented by Dr. Will Tuttle
Sunday, December 3, 2017
1:30 pm

In this presentation, participants will learn the theory and practice of an ancient and effective Buddhist meditation technique called the Four Viharas, as well as a contemporary guided meditation created by Dr. Tuttle, the Eightfold Path to Peace. Vihara is Sanskrit for "abode, " and refers to the aspects of enlightened consciousness: lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and peace. A brief discussion of the historical and philosophical context of this practice will be followed by actually teaching the practice and finally doing it together. The Eightfold Path to Peace is based on Dr. Tuttle’s World Peace Meditations, and include meditations on the following eight themes: Intuition; Relationships; World Peace; Animal Relations; Earth Healing; Radiant Health; Abundance; and Joy & Gratitude. Dr. Tuttle will present these practices and discuss and teach them, and also will accompany the practice with original piano music especially created for this practice. Discussion of the benefits of the practice, and answering questions will be included in this presentation. 

Will Tuttle, pianist, composer, educator, and author, has performed and lectured widely throughout the United States and Europe. His doctorate degree with highest honors from the University of California, Berkeley, focused on educating intuition in adults, and he has taught college courses in creativity, humanities, mythology, and philosophy. He has a broad background in both Eastern and Western meditation traditions, and is a former Zen monk. Devoted to planetary awakening and to creating uplifting healing music, he has created 8 much-loved CD albums of original piano music, as well as his #1 Amazon best-selling book, The World Peace Diet. He currently travels with his spouse, Madeleine, a visionary artist from Switzerland, providing concerts, lectures, workshops, and exhibits, and their intuitively-inspired Personalized Music and Art Portraits for individuals and couples.
