GAY SPIRIT

A safe place for gay men to explore the intersection of sexuality and spirituality

“As gay men, we are uniquely qualified to bring the message of compassion, forgiveness, and self-acceptance—for we have been there and know how important it is to be proud of who we are.”    Alan Downs, PHD The Velvet Rage

Why do so many gay men struggle with issues of self-worth? What is it about gay culture that has us all so hyper-focused on our appearance? Is monogamy a realistic expectation in gay life? Why are there so many lonely gay men unable to find love? Who needs a religion that hosts an angry, judgmental deity? If God is Love, then why isn’t society more loving and accepting of gay people?

These questions and more will be the focus of our group meetings. Other issues such as addiction, pornography, gender identity, and masculinity will be addressed in future meetings. Join us as we connect, heal, cry and laugh together.

Facilitator: Dr. Chris Michaels

Wednesday's 7:00 - 8:30 PM

Starting July 19th

SACRED SOUNDS CHANTING CIRCLE

First and Third Thursday's 7:30 - 8:30 PM

Come and Join us, first and third Thursday each month, in the Sacred Sounds chanting circle, and raise your vibration to a higher level!

Many diverse spiritual traditions consider chanting to be a path to spiritual development, the roots of which can be found in one form or another in most Eastern and Western religions. Chanting is a commonly used spiritual practice and benefits the participant in solo practice, but is greatly enhanced when done in a group setting.

Science has proven that chanting has numerous benefits for the body and mind and that even just listening to chanting provides the same benefits as vocalizing. Chanting has been shown to:

Reduce heart rate
Helps oxygenate the brain
Creates calm brainwave activity
Lowers blood pressure
Balances and aligns chakras
Helps to attain higher states of consciousness
Synchronizes the left and right hemispheres of the brain

Elders Rock

Monthly Discussion Group Meeting
Last Sunday of the Month Noon - 1:30 PM

Open to Everyone
Based on Dr. Harvey Austin's book
Elders Rock! - Don't Just Get Older, Become An Elder

Host: Shelia Franklin
These monthly discussions are about ideas that ELDER is a STAGE of life, not an age of life. Based upon this unique and powerful book, we begin to suspect there is much more to life than merely aging. Elderhood is our vanished Third Stage of Life, a marvelous stage, for which the first two stages—Youth and Adult—are supposed to prepare us. At one time, they did. Now they don’t. In this age of technology, Elderhood has been sidelined, ignored and disempowered. Our monthly Sunday noon discussions are an invitation for you to join us on this journey of Elder-discovery as we gain wisdom, compassion, freedom and enormous satisfaction. We will talk together, explore ideas of empowerment, laugh together and move forward together in helping to create a world of You AND Me. Join us, you’ll be glad you did!
His book is for sale in the CSL Fort Lauderdale Bookstore
