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

Children of Today meeting, Tuesday Feb. 20th

The next Children of Today meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 20th. These meetings are wonderful. Here is the announcement. Further details can be found at www.childrenoftoday.wordpress.com

These gatherings are designed to provide information and support to the parents of The Children of Today (children who may not “fit” into the traditional systems possibly labeled ADD, ADHD , Autistic, Disruptive, Incorrigible, etc. and are viewed as “different”, “special”, and/or “psychic”) as well as introduce ideas and processes to help support our amazing children.

Every month on the third Tuesday, families gather to help support one another in today’s society with “tomorrow’s” kids.

Location: Kenwood School, 230 Randolph Avenue, Kenwood, Ca 95452
Date: Tuesday February 20, 2007
Time: 6:30pm-7:30pm

Please bring the kids, art supplies are available for their enjoyment. Everyone’s always welcome!

Donations always appreciated, never required.

Interview: Children of Today


As I mentioned in my recent email newsletter, Randy Sue Collins, local parent, teacher and artist is offering gatherings for parents of the “Children of Today.” (i.e. all high vibrational children labeled Indigo, Crystalline, Rainbow, Autistic, etc.)

I interviewed Randy yesterday about her new project. The first event will be Tuesday Dec 12, 6:30-7:30. More information below.

Describe the “children of today” project.

Many parents are at their wit’s end when it comes to their child’s behavior. They’ve been told by medical professionals, teachers and administrators that there may be something “wrong” with their child and the first thing they prescribe is therapy and/or drugs (like Ritalin). The “Children of Today” project focuses on bringing information based on spiritual principles (not religious!) to the parents, grandparents, and caregivers of high vibrational kids that may have been labeled ADD, ADHD, Autistic, etc. and who don’t “fit in” with today’s traditional systems. I explain what I believe to be true as to their purpose here on Earth at this time and what parents can do to support the children’s growth and well being.

What are the kids like?

Most are hyper sensitive to many influences ranging from food, to clothing, to their enviornments.

Here’s some of the most common traits:

They come into the world with a feeling of royalty (and often act like it)

They have a feeling of “deserving to be here,” and are surprised when others don’t share that.

Self-worth is not a big issue. They often tell the parents “who they are.”

They have difficulty with absolute authority (authority without explanation or choice).

They simply will not do certain things; for example, waiting in line is difficult for them.

They get frustrated with systems that are ritually oriented and don’t require creative thought. They often see better ways of doing things, both at home and in school, which makes them seem like “system busters” (nonconforming to any system).

They seem antisocial unless they are with their own kind. If there are no others of like consciousness around them, they often turn inward, feeling like no other human understands them. School is often extremely difficult for them socially.

They can be depressed and alone often seeking alcohol and drugs to “feel better”. They will not respond to “guilt” discipline (“Wait till your father gets home and finds out what you did”).

They are not shy in letting you know what they need.

All are very psychic whether they admit it or not. They often see and hear things we cannot.

How common are these kids?

They are everywhere all around the world. Almost every child born these days is higher vibration.

How can I tell if my child is one?

Watch them, talk to them, listen to them, you’ll know….

What are the parenting challenges you consistently come across?

The biggest parenting challenge I find is “how to get them to fit in a traditional school system.” Also the sensitivities to foods, clothing, noises, etc. can be a challenge at times. Emotional upsets and with Autistic children, communication, seems to be the biggest challenge.

How can your gathering help with these challenges?

We talk about the reasons for the childrens’ “special ways” and I teach tools to help the parents and the kids to cope with their daily lives. Also having a support group to talk about the same challenges is always helpful. I am also putting together a directory of local healers who understand these children and can help in various ways.

What will the gathering be like?

An hour to an hour and a half depending on questions. At the beginning we’ll do a grounding exercise followed by a short lecture, then Q&A.

Should I bring my child?

YES! The children are very welcome and there will be art supplies available for them to use.

What if not all of my children show these symptoms, what does that mean about the ones that don’t?

Everyone’s an individual on a different path with a different purpose therfore it stands to reason that not all kids will act the same. (no one really acts the same as another anyway). It could be that one child may not be as hyperactive but still has the same high vibration with similar psychic abilites and may not be as open about their “gifts” or as rebellious.

Do you have any websites I can visit to learn more?

There are many beginning with www.indigochild.com.

How can I contact you to discuss this further or to reserve a place in your next event?

Call 707 833-5232, or email randysueart@comcast.net The first event will be Tuesday Dec 12, 6:30-7:30. Please call me for location.
