Do you feel stressed and unable to find time to just Be? Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings. According to the great mystic Meister Eckhart: “Wherever this Word (of God) is to be heard, it must occur in stillness and Silence. We cannot be of greater service to this Word than through stillness and silence. There we can hear and understand it correctly.” Sermon 18. We will begin the hour with 20 minutes of silent meditation. We will then do a 5 minute silent walking meditation followed by another 20 minutes of silence. For more information e-mail;

Andrew Harvey once said that if he could take only one book to a deserted island “The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna” would be his choice. The book is written in dialogue form detailing the conversations Ramakrishna had with people that came to see him. It records his moods, his songs, his humor and gives one a sense of what it would be like to be in the presence of a Divine Incarnation. Using wonderful analogies, Ramakrishna discusses some of the most profound spiritual topics and his own spiritual experiences. We will stop often for discussion and sharing. I will have extra copies for everyone.

On Wednesday, December 1st at 7 p.m.
Carl Jung believed dreams were direct communications from the unconscious to the conscious, and therefore an opportunity for personal growth. If you’re not familiar with dream interpretation, the process is quite simple: learn to remember your dreams and develop your intuition. But since it’s often much easier to interpret someone else’s dream than your own, we’ll share our dreams in a supportive environment to benefit from each others’ intuitive insights.If you have any recent dreams to share, please bring them to discuss with the group.

If you are curious about Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) or have experienced it before, please join me for a class on December 2nd from 6:30-7:30 pm at Sacred Waters.
Yoga Nidra is the practice of very deep relaxation. When used regularly, it has many benefits, especially in calming stress and anxiety. This practice can also help strengthen mood, memory, cognitive function, and self-control. This class will begin with light movement and then move into a 45 minute guided meditation. Perfect for the stressful world we have been living in and as we head into the hectic holiday season. With enough interest, a six-week class will be organized for the new year so this is a great opportunity to see what Yoga Nidra is all about. 
This is a donation class. Please bring either a cash donation or non-perishable foods for the Indiana Food Bank.
You will want to dress in comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat and a blanket or two. However, there are also mats and blankets to borrow at Sacred Waters, if needed.

The first class will begin September 20th and will meet the first and third Monday of the month through December 6th from 7:00 -9:00 p.m. at Sacred Waters.

Judith Robert, Carol Lloyd, and Jamila Blue will our teachers during this series.
Astrology, like all symbolic systems, is a means to imagine the world around us and within ourselves.  The ancient saying attributed to Hermes Tresmegistus, “As above, so below; as within, so without,” conveyed the idea that the movements of Sun, Moon and planets in the heavens mirrored events on earth and developments within the individual psyche.

Reflection upon the astrological birth chart, defined by the relationship of the planetary bodies and the Sun and Moon at birth, provides understanding of both our talents and our struggles, our aspirations and our fears, and gives meaning to our life story. While the patterns of our behavior and relationships seem to repeat themselves over time, with conscious reflection, we are capable of seeing the larger pattern of our life and making changes necessary to our individuation.  

No previous knowledge of astrology is required.  Students of all levels of astrology are welcome to drop into individual classes for the regular suggested donation of $20. Beginners are strongly encourage to register for all six classes by 9/8 and receive a discount on the class fee. Early bird registration for full course by September 8th $90 / $120 thereafter. To register or for questions please email: Judith Robert at              Location: Sacred Waters 16990 Douglas Road, Mishawaka, IN 46545
