Vegetarian Potluck. Please bring vegetarian food that is easily prepared and your own plate and cutlery [you can bring one or two extra plates if you wish]. Mindful eating is facilitated by both sound and silence… this is a time where we will observe personal silence while eating and welcome the spiritual vibrations of our Krsna friends who will offer chants while we eat. The close of this portion of our gathering is a 10 minute relaxation meditation guided by Maryse Thuot to acknowledge digestion and absorption.

Close – Community Coalescence
A time to simply be together and absorb the vibrations of being in the company of like-minded folks. Bring cushions, pillows, blankets and any fun things you feel will enhance the quality of being and sharing with others.

All are Welcome!

Saint Francis of Assisi Peace Prayer (variation)


Make me a living channel of Peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, let me give pardon;
and where there’s doubt, let there be faith;
Grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
