Sunday Meditations at Sunburst: Find Your Missing Peace

Sunburst Sanctuary

Do you sometimes feel frayed, frazzled, or fried? Would you like to feel peaceful, grounded, and centered instead? Then come to our lovely temple nestled into oak-dotted hills and join us for relaxed Sunday meditations. There's even a home-cooked, vegetarian brunch afterward at the Lodge across the way. Delicious! No experience necessary, and beginners are welcome. You don't have to do anything specific, or do it "right"--just come experiment with observing your mind without judgment or anxiety. Take this opportunity to find your missing peace, which is the piece of you that's absolutely authentic, free, and powerful. Sunburst has been holding these Sunday meditations for decades, and over time they have taken on a life of their own. You'll experience the wonderful support of being with like-minded people who know how you feel in these crazy times and who can show you how to return to a more balanced state in your daily life. We start our weekly meditation gathering at 10:30 AM with some live, spirit-filled music followed by a short, insightful talk and then a quiet meditation period. It's so important to set aside some time regularly just for you, so guess what? We even offer a children’s program during the quiet portion! The kids love it and you get to focus on your own spiritual development, which is the biggest gift you can give everyone around you. DETAILS Every Sunday, 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM www.sunburst.org/sundays/ Here's a list of our Sunday talk topics www.sunburst.org/weekly-meditation-topics/. The gate at the top of our driveway will be open by 9:45 AM. Donations appreciated to cover brunch costs. Call us at[masked] or email us ([masked]) if you have any questions. Please share this with your friends and family. Hope to see you soon! For more info about other events, visit: www.sunburst.org/events

POSTPONED - A Day with Hawk Mother

Sunburst Sanctuary

Stay tuned for a new date! Due to COVID-19, this event is being postponed. New date to be announced at a future time. Join award winning Author, Film-maker and Zoologist, Kara Hagedorn, and learn about the amazing world of birds. Meet Sunshine, a rescued Red-tailed Hawk, and hear their heart-warming story of interspecies love and cooperation. Enjoy time in nature in the beautiful surroundings of Sunburst Sanctuary. Kara shares the tender story of Sunshine, a Red-tailed Hawk whom she adopted in 1997, after the bird was shot and could no longer fly and survive in the wild. After several years of Sunshine constructing nests and laying unfertilized eggs, Kara placed two fertile chicken eggs in Sunshine’s nest. In this moving story of cross-species relationships, Sunshine hatched the eggs and accepted the chicks as her own. Enjoy a nature walk with Kara and learn to identify local raptors and other birds. Explore the symbolism of birds as medicine in native traditions. "Sunshine's Surprise" DVD and Kara's books, "Hawk Mother" and the sequel, "Sunshine's Mothering Miracle" will be available for purchase. Kara will have a book signing as part of the event. This is a great opportunity to buy gifts for Mother's Day! Bring a sack lunch to enjoy, and a pair of binoculars. Kara has a few extra pairs of binoculars if you don't have any.
