TONING CIRCLE – June 28th in Sonoma

TONING CIRCLE

Personal Sound Healing

Sunday

June 28, Noon to 4 pm

Margy Henderson invites you to participate in a Toning Experience

Toning is an immediate form of self-help. In any moment we have an option for feeling better. Our own voices, released from constiction, vibrate whatever healing tones are intuitively appropriate to ‘re-set’ the system in which we find ourselves.

Consider the posibility that there was an Original Song of Creation. All matter (including us and our circumstances) arose from Sound. “In the beginning was the song”

All original people of the planet remembered their Creation Songs and passed them down for thousands of years. These songs not only described what brought them into being, but included the Geography of the Land. This is how they could travel from the Inka trail to the Valley of the Moon, from Mt Shasta to the Ocean. The map was in the songs.

Our personal geography, a sense of being in place and time, can be guided by listening with an inner ear to the Original Song, which is outside of space and time. Somehow, by listening and singing, we come to understand that we are a system of earth elements, animated by Light, Consciousness, Love, and Order. The ongoing Creation Song has no time and space restrictions. The big bang of original sound is a pulse wave of Now.

The Songs also held the Moral Code. There is a natural rythmn to a balanced life in Common. When we were warming and cooking at the fires, we also used drum and song to teach, celebrate and Vision. The altered states of Consciousness that arise in commonly held song and rythmn are an invitation for Guidance toward the well-being of the whole group.

It is a radical act to gather for common good, and to bring our personal energy into the mix. We each feel all the better in the shared song.

Maybe modern culture has been bent into submission by commercial jingles and by performance anxiety, but there are many who are ready to explore what is our individual responsibility: Presence. One method of engagemant at this level is to use the voice in a surrendered way. Sing sounds that feel like the Truth of you in the moment. These sounds might initially seem rough, or reflect the difficulties of our circumstances. But they tend to resolve into beauty, into resonance, into a strengthening vibration that heals. We really are naturally built for toning as personal healing that draws us back into harmony with wholeness.

Listening to the truth of ourselves leads us to an even deeper truth: We share the Integrity of the whole.

Heard fully only by the original Consciousness, the orchestra of all matter is a glorious thing. And we are each a destination point in the whole cosmology. We each bring our attention to some part of the Whole each time we are Present to our circumstances. (circum…the circle around our stance, where we are now)

Just look around you right now, bring your attention to something that attracts your interst, and engage with it; love something. And be open to It loving you back.

And here is what is so comforting to me: It seems likely that the most respsonse-able I can be is to listen, listen, listen to what is Singing me Alive each Moment. And sing along.

This Toning Class is like warming ourselves around the common cooking fire. And singing ourselves into rememberance of who we really are.

Tito La Rosa Bio:

Tito La Rosa, a descendent of Quechua Indians of the Peruvian Andes, has for more than a decade, has been recovering and preserving, studying, and intuiting the ancestral music of Peru.

La Rosa was asked by the Peruvian Institute of Culture to play 2,000-year-old instruments at the Museum of the Lord of Sipan to reinvent the sounds these instruments made. In recreating the sounds of this culture that had disappeared into time, La Rosa stated “Time, like death, is a lie.”

Experimenting with the sounds of these 2000-year-old musical instruments, speaking with the archeologists, listening to the sounds of the wind and the murmuring of the birds when flying, La Rosa was deeply moved by this acoustical and magical mochican world, resulting in new “ancient” compositions.

Featured guest artist on New Age superstar Kitaro’s 2001 Grammy-winning CD “Thinking of You,” La Rosa has toured with Kitaro in Japan. Kitaro has said of La Rosa, “His attraction to the Spirit dimension and his love of all things from the natural world allow him to traverse musical landscapes with tranquility and deep passion.” La Rosa has also recorded with Mary Youngblood on his Silver Wave record label (www.SilverWave.com), of which BILLBOARD Magazine says: “La Rosa and Youngblood interweave North and South American winds like smoke..” La Rosa’s 2002 CD, “The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor” was nominated for a Native American Music Award, for Best World Music Recording.

Tito is also a Curandero de Sonido, a Shaman of Music. When performing ritual and ceremony for healing, he enters into an altered state to bring forth sound that elevates the frequency of an individual and allows for healing and balance to occur.

La Rosa was a main presenter at the International Conference on Traditional Instruments in Contemporary Music, sponsored by the French Government. He also took part in “Heart and Hands: Musical Instrument Makers of America,” a Smithsonian traveling exhibit.

Experience Healing Modalities at the Open House on March 21 FREE

Hey, friends.
The wonderful healers who are opening their office for this event are letting people in to experience their various methods, many not available anywhere else.

Silvia Cloe has a hyperbaric chamber, used to get oxygen deeply into the body and brain. I have been lucky enough to try it.

Libby Roberts is  VERY gifted Feldenkrais teacher who does popular classes at Parkpoint.

Jane Ellen Heath is an MD who uses Homeopathy and teaches workshops.

They invited me to do toning tune-ups at the open house.
I hope people will drop by and meet these terrific women, play with their diagnostic machines, biofeedback, and, my favorite, the Hyperbaric chamber for oxygen therapy!

Stephen Mitchell and his new book: The Second Book of the Tao – March 5th – Reader’s Books

Thursday, March 5, 7:30 p.m. *Stephen Mitchell *will present his new book, “The Second Book of the Tao,” at Readers’ Books, 130 E. Napa St., Sonoma. For more information call 707-939-1779./ / / /

On Thursday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m., Readers’ Books will welcome back Stephen Mitchell to talk about his new work, “The Second Book of the Tao.” Mitchell is well-known for his translations and reworking of classic texts. His previous books, the “Tao Te Ching,” “The Gospel According to Jesus,” “Genesis” the “Bhagavad Gita,” “The Book of Job,” and “Gilgamesh,” among others, have earned him a special place of honor in that small pantheon of individuals who try to tease out the real meaning of literature and philosophy. / / / /

“The Second Book of the Tao” represents a bit of a departure. It is a twenty-first century form of ancient wisdom, bringing a new homemade sequel to the “Tao Te Ching” into the modern world. Mitchell introduces us to a cast of vivid characters, most of them humble artisans or servants, who show us precisely what it means to be in harmony with the way things are. His meditations and risky reimagining of the original texts are brilliant and liberating, not least because they catch us off-guard, opening up the heavens where before we saw only a roof./ / / /

Stephen Mitchell’s talk will begin at 7:30 p.m. and it is free and open to the public. Readers’ Books is located at 130 East Napa Street, Sonoma. For more information call 707-939-1779. / — Lilla G. Weinberger Readers’ Books 130 E. Napa St. Sonoma, CA 95476 (707) 939-1779

What’s Growing On?

mutsu_toa.jpg

Fruit tree pruning is in full force from now through Feb 14th, when we switch gears and start propagating plants for the spring and summer seasons. In fact, it already feels like spring at Sonoma Garden Park! January was a fantastic month for the garden, and it was great to see so much support on Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend. We had almost 30 volunteers thanks to Sonoma Community Action Network (CAN).

Also, note our new volunteer hours, which are: Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Saturday’s from 9-2. Come on out and lend a hand. Snacks provided. This Tuesday, Feb 10th, along with the Master Gardeners, we will be pruning fruit trees in the garden, and you are welcome to join us for some hands-on practice.


Grafting Workshop

Sat., February 28th, 1:00-3:00 pm.

Tommy Perot, a sophomore at Sonoma Valley High School, will facilitate this hands-on class and demonstrate how to grow several varieties of delicious fruit on a single tree. Tommy is a member of the California Rare Fruit Growers Association and has been studying exotic and rare fruit growing for the past 5 years.

The workshop fee is $25. To sign up, or for more information, contact Jessica Glatt at 707.996.0712 ext. 108, or email: jessica@sonomaecologycenter.org


Growing Summer Vegetables

Sat., March 21st 10:30 am Master Gardener Patty Ekenberg will talk about how to grow summer vegetables.

Classes are sponored by the Sonoma Master Gardeners, free of charge, and held at the Sonoma Valley Regional Library, 755 W. Napa Street. For more information call the Sonoma County Master Gardener offices at 938.0127 or 565.2608 or visit www.sonomamastergardeners.org


Sonoma Garden Park CSA

The Sonoma Garden Park is returning to its roots by offering community members a chance to be a part of our CSA. Community Supported Agriculture is a way for people to directly support a local farm while receiving a weekly supply of fresh, local, and sustainably grown produce. The Sonoma Garden Park CSA will include a weekly bag full of both fruit and veggies, with an option for flowers, to be picked-up on site for the duration of our harvest season. And instead of the traditional CSA newsletter, we have a blog that will be updated weekly with recipes and a list of the week’s produce from the garden.

For more information, or an application, either stop by Sonoma Garden Park during our volunteer hours to talk to Rebecca, or contact Jessica Glatt at 707.996.0712 ext. 108, or email jessica@sonomaecologycenter.org. Membership is limited, so if you are interested, apply soon!


Water Wisdom Workshop

Sat., February 21st, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at the Sonoma Veterans Memroial Hall

Join the Sonoma Ecology Center, the City of Sonoma, and parterning agencies for a free workshop to learn more about current water issues, and what you can do to help conserve water. There will be great speakers, hands-on demonstrations, and vendor booths for you to check out!

For more information call Wendy Atkins at 707.933.2204, or email: wendya@sonomacity.org

Stay Tuned – Sonoma Garden Park will be hosting a 4 week water conservation educational series in the month of March. Additional information to follow.

Monthly Recipe: Aunt Roxanne’s Sauteed Brussel Sprouts

Ingredients:
1 lb Brussels sprouts, washed, dried and sliced in half
3 shallots, finely sliced

Olive Oil
Aged Balsamic Vineger
Sea salt
Fresh ground pepper

Preparation:
Using a skillet, heat a few teaspoons of olive oil on medium heat. Add shallots and cook for a few minutes until they are transparent. Then add the sliced Brussels sprouts and saute them until they start to turn from a vibrant green to a yellowish color. Drizzle some aged balsamic vinegar over the Brussles sprouts, and finish sauteeing them until they are golden brown and begin to crisp on the edges. Add sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Serve warm and enjoy!


Interested In a Community Garden Plot?

The Sonoma Garden Park is home to 22 community garden plots. Our annual renewal will begin in March, and we may have a few additional plots this year. Some of the benefits of having a community garden plot are: use of garden tools, compost, mulch, water, and a fantastic community of friends! You also get to come out and enjoy the beautiful Sonoma Garden Park whenever you want!

For information about the Community Garden Plot program, contact Jessica Glatt at 707.996.0712 ext.108, or email: jessica@sonomaecologycenter.org

Sonoma Garden Park is an educational community farm and garden managed by the Sonoma Ecology Center. Our address is 19990 7th Street East between MacArthur and Denmark.

Planet Organics now open in Sonoma

Received by email yesterday:

From: Larry Bearg Sent: Friday, February 13, 2009 12:18:35 PM Subject: Sonoma Store Open!

Hi Friends and Colleagues, Tomorrow we open our first Planet Organics retail store! If you live in the Sonoma or happen to be in town, come by and check us out! However, in these tough economic times I need your help to get the word out about our store. So please tell your friends, your enemies, your neighbors and co-workers about our store.

What to tell them (if you haven’t come by the store yet, or gotten an earful from me about what we are doing)? Our focus is on great local organic produce. We have a larger selection and better prices than everyone else in town on our produce. And it is ALL organic. (We are able to do this because of our already large volume buying for the delivery service). We have an awesome selection of totally amazing and obscure wines from all over the world all priced at $10.00 – $25.00. (How did we do this, you ask? We partnered with my favorite wine store, Vintage Berkeley, to do our wine buying for us. As you know I love wine and I love what these guys do – find really great unknown wines at great prices).

We have a great selection of healthy prepared meals – both frozen and fresh – heat-and-eat, and do-it-yourself meal kits. All made hand-made locally by great chefs. And lastly, we have a little bit of everything – milk, fresh baked breads, cheeses, organic and pastured eggs, cereal, pastas, diapers, you name it.

You CAN do a complete shopping in our store. So please, pass the word, come and see us and thanks for your kind support!

UPDATE:  Hours are 9am-7pm everyday.
