A CELTIC-KIRTAN MUSICAL EVENT
SUNDAY JUNE 26, 7:00 pm
ST. JOHN’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH 1419 PINE ST. BOULDER
We warmly welcome you to explore THIN PLACES. An opportunity to experience where we have been touched spirituallyand our life changed. Celtic peoples in particular honor Thin Places as an important way to connect to the Spirit. Enjoy music, stories, and companionship. Take a walkabout where we light candles, visit a world altar, seek healing, engage in silence and reflections, and enjoy wine/water, and treats at the end of the gathering.
Stefan Andre Waligur ‘Macushla’ (pianist, vocalist, composer) will lead us in singing and chanting. We are celebrating his musical gifts and giving thanks for his presence in Boulder because he will be relocating to Berkeley to do a doctorate on “The Celtic Lament.” Other musicians include Jessie Burns (fiddler), Marcy Baruch (vocalist), Tom Duffy (vocalist and sound).
Your generous donations are greatly welcomed. They will help provide music at future Solas events.
You are invited and received as a friend. Come for solace of your soul. For a flyer for this event, click here.

Group Discussion on Being Mortal
Eben Carsey, MD, MDiv, is offering to facilitate a group for discussion and personal sharing regarding Being Mortal, a book by Atul Gawande, MD, and the issues that this book raises in our lives. The group will meet 8:30 to 9:30 am on Sundays, Oct. 9th through Nov. 13th. If necessary, the larger group may break into smaller groups to facilitate inclusion of everyone in the discussion and sharing. A rather long NY Times review of the book can be found at http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2015/01/08/better-way-out/ . A shorter review can be found at http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/17/arts/being-mortal-by-atul-gawande.html?_r=0 .
