Reading Glasses for Haiti

Please bring glasses to Jubilee! by March 6th and leave them in the box in the Entry Area. Terry says, “Thank you for your continued support and generosity.”

Need a Printed Charitable Contribution Statement?
With the changes in the tax laws for 2019, we realize that most folks will be taking the standard deduction rather than itemizing deductions.  With that in mind, we are trying a different approach to our Charitable Contribution statements.  Some individuals have asked for a written statement and for those folks a statement will be sent.  For others, we will mail a written statement upon request. So…if you need one, just ask.  Contact Don Fortuna at (828) 252-5335 or [email protected] jubileecommunity.org. We are trying to save unnecessary postage, effort and paper. But, we understand that this is really a “trial balloon” and your feedback is requested.

Women of Wisdom and Compassion
…Friday, March 1 from 7:30 to 9 pm
What happens when we look at the story of the Buddha from the perspective of his aunt and wife? Hidden in plain sight are multitudes of wise and wonderful women within the Buddhist tradition. Khenmo Drolma has been the abbess of the Vajra Dakini Nunnery in Maine since 2004 when she became the first woman and the first westerner in her lineage to officially hold that responsibility. After her novice ordination in 1997, she received monastic training at Gampo Abbey guided by Ven. Pema Chödrön. She took full ordination in 2002 in Taiwan. Prior to that, she was a sculptor and professor at Maine College of the Arts. Her talk will highlight the feminine ancestors of Buddhism, as well as some of today’s women who are setting new models for Buddhists everywhere.

Lost & Found: A highly interactive 9-week workshop that
ins Monday, March 18, 6—8 pm
Sometimes in life, something falls apart and we lose our way, leaving us empty and without direction. This is usually the catalyst to walking away from what is no longer serving us and moving towards rebuilding our lives with new meaning. These are the stories that come alive in Lost and Found, a highly interactive 9-week workshop that begins Monday, March 18. Through personal and collective exploration, improvisation and writing, participants will co-create an interweaving of stories and movements about getting lost and finding their way back. At the end of 9 weeks, participants will present a collectively-designed community performance to be performed on Sunday, May 19, 2019. To register go to www.eventbrite.com/e/story-choreography-projects-lost-and-found-tickets-54627183376?aff=ebdssbdestsearch.  The cost is $189; however, participants may attend a sample first session for $15. All experience levels and body types welcome.
