Hi, fellow SF Meditation Meetup group members,
I'm writing to invite you to two enlightening, exciting, and *free*
immediately upcoming events--a talk (this Sunday) and a public group
meditation (next Tuesday). I'll give a brief synopsis of each event
and then more precise info on the when and where following that
links to more info). Hope you can make it to one or both events, and
to see you there, as well as at future SF Med. meetups!
By way of explanation, I'm working with a network of volunteers who're
organizing the lecture event and the public group meditation.
All best wishes,
1. The talk (Sunday, Aug. 10, 2 p.m., Palace of Fine Arts Theater,
below for more): British painter, author, and editor of "Share
International" magazine Benjamin Creme will be giving a *free*, public,
and wide-ranging talk on the interconnection of the present crises
the world--spiritual, political, economic, environmental, and so on--and
their common solution through fundamental principles of right human
relationship: sharing, justice, and peace. He will also provide
information about a spiritual teacher living in London and some of his
teachings on the art of self-realization, and talk about the bright
that, unbeknown to us, lies in relatively near store for humanity. Mr.
Creme is an engaging, funny, and tremendously insightful speaker, and
though he may tread over some potentially controversial topics, he
his perspective as information only, for open-minded consideration--
dogma. (Expected attendance:[masked])
2. The group meditation (Tues., Aug. 12, 7:30 p.m., Fort Mason Ctr.,
SF--see below): Benjamin Creme will also, a couple of days later,
an introduction to meditation in general, and a group meditation in
particular, called transmission meditation. With his guidance, the group
will practice the meditation, which may last several hours, although
is welcome to stay for as long (or short) as he or she likes or can.
Transmission meditation is a very simple but potent and dynamic mode
of service and of personal spiritual growth. Moreover, it doesn't
subscription to any religion or ideology, though of course is open
religious and non-religious alike. (Expected attendance:[masked])
Here is the precise info on both events (which are, again, *free*):
"The Time of Change has Come," a talk by Benjamin Creme.
Sunday, August 10, 2 p.m.
Palace of Fine Arts Theater
3301 Lyon Street (at Bay)
Transmission Meditation with Benjamin Creme
--A potent form of world service--
Tuesday, August 12, 7:30 p.m., Fort Mason Center

(Of course, free and open to the public)
By the way, the talk and meditation are organized by a network of
volunteers in the Bay Area (of which I am a member), and Benjamin Creme
receives no financial remuneration for his talks, published books, or
editing work. He is a painter by profession.
