Tuesday, May 2

SATSANG, 7-9 p.m., OM Sanctuary, 87 Richmond Hill Drive., Asheville. Jubilee Community’s Life Together series offers a weekly experience (every Tuesday) of Satsang with Laurie Berry Clifford. Attendees are asked to park behind the Oshun Renewal Center and enter through the main entrance to the RiverCane Room. Attendees should then remove their shoes, turn off their cellphones and enter in silence. Folding chairs, cushions and back jacks are provided — or attendees may bring your own. Clifford operates from an understanding that humans are triune beings and they are comprised of three parts: the body, the story and the true self. Her initials, LBC, bring three attributes of the One to mind: love, beauty and compassion. She gives Satsang that flows in the following order: 15-minute silent sitting, guided meditation, group reflection, short break, teaching, closing circle and group blessing. Proceeds from her donation basket help support charities that she cherishes.

Firewalking Workshop, 5:30 p.m., Unity of the Blue Ridge, 2041 Old Fanning Bridge Road, Mills River. A firewalking workshop will be led the Rev. Dan Beckett, who is a certified firewalk instructor. The workshop is intended to help participants to learn how to walk barefoot on hot coals, safely. “Nobody has to walk, but everyone can,” Unity noted. “Whether you walk or witness someone walking, you will be forever changed.These are some of the things firewalkers have said about this uniquely powerful workshop: ‘The words “I can’t” were erased from my vocabulary after I walked’ and ‘The firewalk experience has been a profound, life-altering part of my healing journey.’“ Beckett is billed as an experienced, professionally trained and certified firewalking instructor. With Beckett, the workshop participants will learn everything they need to know to have a safe and profoundly unique experience of deep spiritual empowerment and personal transformation. The firewalk workshop is a sacred ceremony culminating in the opportunity for participants to walk the coals if they choose to. The workshop will consist of preparation activities that include meditation and prayer, group sharing, music, inward exploration as well as thorough instruction and demonstration of firewalking. Beckwith will share his extensive experience and intensive professional training in firewalking instruction. The workshop will last approximately three and a half hours, culminating in the firewalk itself. After the firewalk, we will celebrate and share along with food and fellowship. Preregistration at least three days before the event is required. To register, visit http://abundantpath.com/firewalking

Rather than take it on faith, you are invited to conduct nine 48-hour experiments to prove there really is a positive, loving, totally hip force in the universe. Yes, you read that right. It says ‘prove.’” Attendees are urged to bring their lunches.
