Our August Meeting is a Veggie Potluck

Bring your friends and a vegetarian dish to share to our Party on Tuesday, August 11th. at 6:30 pm. We will enjoy a vegetarian dinner and talk about the connection between our food choices and world peace.
The film Food Inc. is playing at the Novi Town Center Theater. It is a terrific documentary that makes you think about the fact that we vote 3 times a day with our food choices.


”Have you ever had the experience of stopping so completely,of being in your body so completely,of being in your life so completely,that what you knew and what you didn’t know,that what had been and what was yet to come,and the way things are right now,no longer held even the slightest hint of anxiety or discord,a moment of complete presence beyond striving,beyond mere acceptance,beyond the desire to escape or fix anything or plunge ahead,a moment of pure being,no longer in time,a moment of pure seeing,pure feeling,a moment in which life simply is,and that is-ness grabs you by all your senses,all your memories,by your very genes,by your loves,and welcomes you home,that is a taste of mindfulness.”

Jon Kabat - Zinn

Peace to You and Yours with Love
