2022 Committed Giving Program

For the next few weeks, we are holding our Annual Committed Giving Program. This is a time for us to commit to our Beloved Community at a deeper level. Throughout this time we will be exploring our 2022 vision and discovering what it means to step more fully into our vision of “Celebrating Spirit within and knowing the Oneness of humanity.” Each week we will be talking about one of the four areas that we are focusing on next year, Spiritual Enrichment, Center Growth, Deepening Connection, and Community Outreach. Please join us on Sunday mornings in-person or on livestream to learn more about our 2022 vision.
We ask that you go within and consider your commitment for 2022. Committing to Celebration Center supports Rev. Kris and the Leadership Council in preparing the budget and knowing what resources we have to further our vision and teaching in 2022. In addition, by committing to give where you are spiritually fed, you are setting Spiritual Law in motion and declaring your intention for abundance and prosperity in your life.

If you have more questions or want to chat with Rev. Kris, feel free to reach out at RevKris@CelebrationCenter.org or schedule time with her at https://revkris.appointlet.com/b/rev-kris

  “Drumming can induce a natural “high” by increasing Alpha brain waves.
When the brain changes from Beta waves (concentration) to Alpha waves,
you feel calm and relaxed.”
~ Christiane Northrup M.D.
  Did you know drumming makes you smarter? The rhythmic energy synchronizes both hemispheres of your brain, so logical left & intuitive right pulsate together, making the inner guidance system stronger by using the whole brain.

 

Chanting with Nellie: Sound as Stairway to Heaven

Nellie Lauth

Friday Oct 11, 7:15 – 8: 15 pm.

Join us for a powerful hour of chanting and meditation led by former Buddhist nun Nellie Lauth, MSW. We will sit on chairs in a candle lit circle, singing chants from multiple traditions. Regular attenders say, “Nellie blows out the roof. When she chants with us, a portal opens to another dimension.”

Nellie has worked with prisoners, AIDS patients, addicts, and dementia sufferers. But she credits her time in a Buddhist convent in India with teaching her true compassion. Tibetan monks brought her childhood Christianity into its fullest expression, she says.

Nellie has authored several books including “Buddhist Footsteps in a Christian Heart” and her latest, “Now Watch my Rising.”  For more information see her website: nellielauth.com.
