SUNDAY

1:00—2:30 pm.  STUDIES IN THE SECRET DOCTRINE, VOLUME 2,                                                 Ongoing
Facilitator:  Carol Hurd              2nd & 4th Sundays of the month  


Volume 2 of the Secret Doctrine focuses on the coming into being and the evolution of Humanity through the 7
Root Races (developmental stages).  Volume 2  begins by telling the story of the beginnings of sentient life.  
Why is this important?  As Sri Mahava Ashish says in Man Son of Man:  "What we believe about our origin
determines what we believe about our destiny, and both of these determine our attitude towards everyday

life--our personal and social ethic."
This class will be presented during July and August (including Aug. 20th); suspended from Aug. 27 to resume
Oct.22.



3:00—4:30 pm.  SPEAKERS FORUM.  Speakers and their topics are listed elsewhere.


6:00—7:00 pm.  BHAGAVAD GITA: CHAPTER NINE
THE YOGA OF ROYAL KNOWLEDGE AND THE ROYAL SECRET
Facilitator:  Janani Cleary                                                                                                                      
Ongoing                                                                                                 

This chapter first establishes the presence of the Creator and then presents the vision of the Creator and how
the Creator manifests throughout the Creation as well as the roles that we all have to play within the setup of
the Creation.  It is at once both wholly and colorfully descriptive as well as logical.  It gives the backdrop of how
the Vedas present the connection between the Creator and the Vedic social structure and by so doing, it
completely reinforces that vision that includes and embraces each and every participant.




7:30—9 pm.  MEDITATION SESSION IN THE TRADITION OF THE NIMATJULLAHI SUFI ORDER  Facilitator:
Carole Ross                        EVERY SUNDAY                                                                             NEW!!!


Tea will be served at 7:30.  Mediation will begin at 8:00 with music and poetry (on CD's).  Bring a throw pillow if
you prefer to sit on the floor.  I look forward to sharing this time with you.




MONDAY


6—7:15 pm.  MAN IN SOCIETY  Facilitator: Edgar Quiroga


It is indicated in esoteric teaching that both man and woman are a part of Higher Self and that our aim and
direction in life is to become aware of the Higher Self and thus fulfill our purpose in life. We all live in a
community. Can the Society we live in have a different aim and direction? What is the true purpose of Man in
Society? For those interested in pursuing this inquiry further the class is being offered.




7:30—8:30 pm.  THE POWER OF NOW Facilitator:  Marla Past                                                            NEW!!!


A new discussion group taking form based on the teachings of  Eckhart Tolle.  The subjects: How to become
free of unhappiness. How to transform suffering into peace.  Please bring your questions, and let us explore
the possibilities!



TUESDAY


11:00—11:55 am.  THE ADVAITA MASTERS FOCUS GROUP                                                            
Ongoing                     
Facilitators: Ralph Beaudry, Theresa Lawrence


Advaita is one of the world’s most ancient philosophies.  In the dialogues with Masters one catches the
inexpressible; something indescribable.  Words are the vehicle but between the words - the flow is there.
Energy moves, grace moves, joy moves.  A Master's words move you inward to experience 'who' you really are.
This is not a teaching.  Share these words with us on Tuesdays
.


   
12 Noon—1:30 pm.  ESOTERICA—Facilitators: Ralph Beaudry, Theresa Lawrence                            Ongoing


Come explore with us the many esoteric topics which comprise the landscape of inner inquiry.  This is a forum
for all to share their ideas and questions.   A Meal for the Mind will follow where the discussion may continue.




3:00—4:30 pm. THE GIFT OF MYSTIC POETRY   Facilitator:  Brian Burns                                      
Ongoing                                                                   2nd and 4th Tuesday



5:00—7:00 PM. ESOTERIC SCHOOL OF THEOSOPHY   2nd Tues. of the Month            EST Members
Only                                    
For more information email Carol Hurd:  theosophy2011@gmail.com



6:00 pm. A COURSE IN MIRACLES (ACIM) Facilitator: Zandra Vann    1st, 3rd & 4th TUES.          Ongoing  

                                      
"A universal theology is impossible, but a universal experience is not only possible but necessary. It is this
experience toward which the course is directed."  (MT, COT, pg 77.)
A Course in Miracles therefore is a universal spiritual wisdom teaching, not a religion.  [Paraphrased from A
Course In Miracles - Foundation For Inner Peace: web site (ACIM.ORG)]   This group of teachers and students
will review all three volumes of the curriculum as well as introducing other resources for discussion, under-
standing and practicing the principles of ACIM.  This work removes obstacles of awareness of ourselves and
promotes inner peace.  "Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.  Herein lies the peace of God."




WEDNESDAY


5:30—6:45 pm.  MEDITATION—SITTING PRACTICE AND INTEGRATION INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE                  
Facilitator:  Tony Spatarella                                                                                               Ongoing


This class focuses on calming meditation, insight meditation (Vipassana), chakra purification and Tantric
visualization meditations.  There is also some discussion on how to integrate the practice into our lives on a
daily basis.




7:00—8:00pm.  KENOPANISHAD              Facilitator:  Janani Cleary                                                Ongoing

The Upanishads are texts that are part of the Vedas.  They unfold Vedanta - the Vision of Oneself.  There are at
least 120 known Upanishads of which 10 are considered to be major because their scope encompasses the
essence of all of Vedanta.  Kenopanishad is a smaller major Upanishad that conducts an intriguing inquiry
into who and what is the essence of ourselves.  In its approach, it reveals that the discovery of the true nature
of ourselves is readily accomplished by simply asking the right questions.




THURSDAY

7:30—9 pm.  MEDITATION SESSION IN THE TRADITION OF THE NIMATJULLAHI SUFI ORDER  Facilitator:
Carole Ross          1st and 3rd Thursday                                                                           Ongoing

This meditation will take place the 1st and 3rd Thursday evenings of the month.  Tea will be served at 7:30 pm.
Mediation will begin at 8 pm with music and poetry (on CD's).  Bring a throw pillow if you prefer to sit on the
floor.  I look forward to sharing this time with you.

7:30 pm.  SOUTH FLORIDA DHARMA presents: “Exploring the World of ‘Dream Yoga’.”                NEW!!!
4th Friday of the month

Join Brian, Jeff, & Tony as they present both the daytime and nighttime practices of Dream Yoga. For the first 4
sessions we will explore the daytime practices which include meditation, yogic purification, illusory body
practice, mirror practice, and a partner practice. For the next several sessions, we will learn about & engage
the nighttime practices, to assist us toward the experience of lucid dreaming.  This allows for us to increase
awareness, as we build a bridge between our waking and dream consciousness. These unique practices
allow us the opportunity to grow spiritually, and increase our clarity of mind.

Facilitator: Leilani Racoma-Lessnau


Join us in examining the essential nature of the human being through the Spiritual Scientific investigations of
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), an Austrian born doctor of philosophy, highly trained scientist and clairvoyant. We
will endeavor to dive deeply into the mysteries of the human being’s fourfold structure of bodies (Physical,
Etheric, Astral, and Ego) and how these bodies relate to the human soul forces of Thinking, Feeling and
Willing. These concepts have been modernized through the work of Rudolf Steiner. We will share our thoughts
regarding these foundational keys in discussion and investigations of Spiritual Science.


2:00—4:00 pm.  B.O.T.A.  Studies of the Tarot.  Facilitator:  Margarita Nantel                                 
                      Second Saturday of the Month—July 8th,  August 12th ,  Sept. 9th                          
Ongoing     
                                  

Builders of the Adytum (B.O.T.A.) is a true Mystery School, an outer vehicle of the Inner Spiritual Hierarchy,
sometimes called the Inner School.  Its system is that of the Western, Qabalistic-Hermetic tradition.  An
important part of B.O.T.A. work involves the study of Tarot. Tarot is one of the foremost aids to spiritual
transformation as the series of Tarot keys is a record of the inner knowledge of the western sages in picture
form.  It is this use of Tarot that our presentations will employ, not any common use such as fortune telling.
