Spirituality & Singing Salon
Please join us at Oracle Temple as we explore ageless and contemporary spiritual themes and theosophies. We also will raise our voices in song.
The Oracle Temple Salon is a recurring event on the second Friday of each month. We will embark on high-level discussions and spiritual reflection, with a new theme to consider each month.
For April's Salon, Jill Marie will offer a precursor to her Saturday workshop at the Oracle campus, which will draw on her life experiences with its ups and downs, including receiving teachings from Tibetan Buddhist high lamas including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Jill has taught yoga and meditation for over 3 decades and in the process has learned that happiness begins with cherishing others and having a peaceful mind - a day to day practice of understanding the 'science of the mind. She believes our life is a 'practice' not a 'perfect.' We do our best, try not to harm others and along the way we can get happier and happier while being a better friend and loving force in the world.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts and sowing “Seeds of Song.” Along the way, we'll learn more about ourselves, each other, and God, as we pay respect to Sacred Texts and to New Age concepts such as: The Spectrum of Consciousness, Duality & Non-Duality, Enlightenment, Incarnation, Mythology, Cosmology, Archetypes, and more!
