Rumi and Meditation Meetup - Outdoors at Holy Spirit

Rumi and Meditation meetup! Hope you can come! Saturday, July 13th, 2 - 4 pm (2 hours).

Alice, Alan and David will co-lead this Saturday meetup.

OUTDOORS - to left of Main Administration Building -- on the lovely grounds of the Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Encino.

Everyone who wants to will be able to read a short poem by Rumi (available where we meet). It's also ok to bring your favorite Rumi poem to read. We will have a brief walking meditation at the end.

DELICIOUS COLD CHAI TEA and warm herb teas will be on hand, free of charge.

BRING a donation of a dollar or two, if you wish. This is completely optional.

DIRECTIONS: Holy Spirit Retreat Center, 4316 Lanai Rd., Encino, CA 91436 -- from Ventura Blvd, take Hayvenhurst Ave south past Libbit Ave. At the next block the road splits into 2 forks: Take the lefthand fork, which is Lanai Rd. Go uphill past Garvin Drive; the entrance to the Retreat is half-way up the hill on the left side of the road. You'll see a sign. Park on Lanai Rd near the entrance sign, and walk up into the central plaza located in the center of the Retreat buildings. From there, go to the tallest building in the plaza -- This is the Administration Building. We'll be meeting outside, to the left of the Administration Building.

NOTE: If you're arriving via Route 101, there's only a Hayvenhurst exit northbound on 101. If you're heading southbound on 101, you have to take the Balboa Blvd exit south (right), then left on Ventura Blvd, and right on Hayvenhurst.

There is limited handicap-accessible parking on the retreat grounds, but these are usually full. If you park on Lanai, it's a little ways -- about the distance of a short block, and somewhat uphill -- from where we park to where we will meet.

Those who plan to arrive by bus will have several long blocks to walk from Ventura Blvd to the Retreat Center.

What fun to get together again and hear our beloved Rumi!

Love and blessings to all, Alice

After the meetup: Alice would be interested in a little-bit longer meditation after the meetup. If anyone else would be interested, kindly let her know, and let her know how long you would like the meditation to be - [masked]

    It's always wonderful & inspiring. I always come away with something insightful, often important and/or meaningful. Everyone contributes to the experience in a kind and supportive manner. Alice is lovely. The people are generous in their sharing.
