PEACE BE UNTO THEE, STRANGER

Peace be unto thee, stranger, enter and be not afraid.
I have left the gate open and thou art welcome to my home.
There is room in my house for all.
I have swept the hearth and lighted the fire.
The room is warm and cheerful and you will find comfort and rest within.
The table is laid and the fruits of Life are spread before thee.
The wine is here also, it sparkles in the light.
I have set a chair for you where the sunbeams dance through the shade.
Sit and rest and refresh your soul.
Eat of the fruit and drink the wine.
All, all is yours, and you are welcome.

Uplifting Film for the Holidays Dec 21

Ocean of Safety poster

SOCA invites you to an experimental film by British/Afghan multimedia artist Yusuf ‘Yoshi’ Misdaq at their holiday session Dec 21. Splicing over 200 classic films & TV shows from England & America, the film is a philosophical, humorous & offbeat mosaic; a tapestry on the meaning of existence. It stars Michael Douglas as Humanity.

Celebration Center for Spiritual Living
2830 Graham Road, Suite 220
Falls Church VA 22042

‘Ocean of Safety’ explores traditional approaches to living & dying (focusing largely on classical Central-Asian & Far-Eastern philosophies, notably Sufism). Then, through the lenses of Michael Douglas & Western mainstream culture, it spotlights intersecting points of unity between the two. These are the tracks of harmony where both ancient, modern, East, West, secular, spiritual, man, woman & child all meet, converge… Warmly embrace.

Featuring the music of Prince, Michael Jackson, Queen & Shabazz Palaces, ‘Ocean of Safety’ is also a technical masterclass in the fine art of video editing & subtle sound design. The film took 4 years to complete, beginning as a PhD ithesis proposal before evolving over time into its present form.

ABOUT THIS SCREENING
This screening is presented free of charge as a holiday offering from Seekers of a Certain Age. SOCA is the elders group of Celebration Center for Spiritual Living where Yusuf Misdaq is a favorite guest artist. Discussion and refreshments will follow the film. Please RSVP, as seating is limited. You can do so at our Meetup.
