Spirituality & the Unconscious
…Five Thursdays starting March 22nd, 6:30 – 8 pm
Lawson Sachter & Sonja Kjolhede, co-abbots of Windhorse Zen Community, will be leading this five session conversation, concluding on April 12th. The experience will be a combination of talk, group interaction and meditation—each session will be a time for focused exploration of rich, complex issues that profoundly affect our lives and the world around us. Relevant readings will be sent out before each session to those who register in advance. Although each evening will be presented as an independent segment, these sessions will naturally build on each other.  To sign up or for more information go to http//windhorsezen. org/spirituality-and-the-unconscious/

Three Celebrations on Easter Sunday, April 1st
…Join us at 8:30, 9:45 or 11: 15 am
In order to accommodate the number of Jubilants participating on Easter Sunday, we will offer three Celebrations (and because it is the first Sunday of the month) — the first at 8:30 am with Communion, the second at 9:45 am and the third at 11:15 am.  Nurture Classes will meet at their regular times and a nursery will be available during the 9:45 & 11:15 am Celebrations.  We will also welcome Howard’s return from his sabbatical leave.

Who Is Up this Month?
As most people know, our own Lauren Fortuna is serving as Liturgist at all Celebrations. On March 18th Jubilee! Minister Chris Andrews from Baton Rouge, Louisiana will again provide our sermon.  Chris is a retired United Methodist Minister who was the senior pastor of the largest UMC in the state of Louisiana. Finally, on Palm Sunday, March 25th, Cathryn Davis Zommer from Charleston, SC, will be with us again. Rest assured that our Celebrations will be meaningful and uplifting.

Calling of the Bears Ceremony
Thursday, March 22nd at 7 pm at Jubilee!
At the Solstice, with Cherokee elder Yona Frenchhawk we celebrated the time of the bears going into their caves and gathering strength inside Mother Earth. On March 22nd (the Spring Equinox) also with Yona, we will celebrate the return of the bears.

Pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy? Interested? Let’s Talk!
…Sunday, March 25th at 2 pm

We are looking to gather a small group who is interested in going. The seven days would include airfare, hotel, two meals/day, pilgrimage walks, yoga and movement meditation and staying in a preserved castle in the medieval town in central Italy’s Umbria region. Are you interested?
