Chanting into Meditation September 16th Friday 7 pm

led by Melinda Staley
Date and Time: Friday September 16 at 7:00 pm
Location: Show Me Dharma
Cost: Offered on a dana (donation) basis

Chanting into meditation is based on the yogic practice of raising energy and quickly stopping. The mantras chanted carry a vibration that shifts the consciousness into a broader perspective, as well as releasing the places of holding around the heart. We chant for an extended period, then stop to experience the energy in stillness. Everyone is welcome to enjoy this experience and this community of committed practitioners.

On Saturday August 27, the Mid-Missouri PrideFest will be held in downtown Columbia. Show Me Dharma will have a booth at Pride Fest. We are very happy that we are making our presence known again, and want to invite everyone in the SMD community to be a part of this event.
To make this happen, we need folks to staff our booth. The PrideFest program runs from 1:00 pm till about 7:00 pm. I anticipate that if two people each hour took hour-long shifts, we would need about 15 people.
If you would like to be part of this, please reply with your name and the hour(s) you can offer to be there. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please email Joe McCormack at metta41856@gmail.com or or call 573-864-5617.
