Dear Viriditas Community,
February… the month of LOVE! I want to start this newsletter by sharing my favorite spiritual text on love: yes 1 Corinthians 13, verses 4-7:
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
The power of love never ceases to amaze me. And so I want to share with you the many ways that Viriditas is sharing love these days and invite you to connect with the many offerings of this beautiful company.
David and I are currently rehearsing for our annual multimedia performance Tap Into Love which will take place at the Viriditas Studio on the evening of February 18th from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Click here to view the promotional video we created for this heartwarming event! This year we are celebrating our connections to our ancestors. I will be showing how both of my parents as well as my father’s three(!) sisters have been sources of inspiration and joy in my life. If you attend only one Viriditas event all year, this would be my recommendation. Delicious food, great company and a performance that will fill you with joy, tenderness and yes LOVE! Purchase your tickets today! Click here to purchase tickets.
Tap Into Transformation continues to bring “food, fun and friendship” to participants on the third Friday of every month. In January we danced to the song “You’re The One That I Want” from the movie Grease. The colors of the evening were black, white and gold and we all wore black and gold beads as we followed the fun choreography. After dinner we created drawings of what we wanted in the year 2017. As always, I felt so blessed to share the evening with such beautiful and warm people. This month we will be bringing back our Michael Jackson choreography with a new twist. So, all you Michael Jackson fans….JOIN US on February 17th. (Click here to purchase tickets.)
On February 24th, David and I will once again be performing as part of the Opening Reception of the 7th Annual NoBo Group Show. The Art Show, “Looking for Common Ground: A Collaboration” will take place at the Boulder Public Library Main Branch, Canyon Gallery, 1101 Arapahoe Ave. from 6:00pm – 9:00pm. Mark your calendars! There are some incredibly gifted artists in North Boulder and this is your chance to see their work all in one show. David and I will be singing and tap dancing our greatest hits and would love to see you there.
Looking ahead to March 18th, I am very excited to let you know that the Kutandara Repertory Marimba Ensemble that I am part of will be performing as part of a Benefit Concert for Child Future Africa at St. Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church, 4775 Cambridge Street in Boulder, Colorado 80301. The concert is at 7:00 pm, and we will be performing with Tendai Muparutsa & ZiMBIRA. You can make a donation for Child Future Africa at the door. If you have never heard marimba music, you are in for a treat. The JOY of this music is unparalleled!
Finally, I want to encourage those of you who have not yet checked out the Free Healing Library on the doctorofthesoul website, to give yourself the gift and register. There are now two pages you can access at the Library with beautiful recordings and guidances on how to use them in your meditative practices. Next week I will be adding a recording of the Saraswati mantra from the Doctor Of The Soul group event from February 4th. Click here to join the library. To register all you need to do is type in an email address and a password. You will then have access to the pages of the library.
I will leave you now with one more image. David and I leave on Friday morning for our monthly retreat in the mountains. This month we will be in Vail. What a blessing it is to spend four whole days with this loving man in such powerfully loving mountains!
May the love of this season fill your hearts!
