Dogs, Plants, and the Paranormal
Presentation by David Bruce

The world around us is both ordinary and strange. The mundane aspects of life are well known, but what about those peculiar yet persistent occurrences that violate our sense of what is possible, at least according to the rules of modern science? These phenomena, which have been observed by thousands, have been called the supernatural, the occult, or the paranormal. They have also been called humbug and fabrications by skeptics. Are the skeptics right, or does there exist scientific evidence that validates some of these inexplicable happenings?

David Bruce is a third-generation Theosophist. He was active in the Milwaukee Lodge for eighteen years before moving to the TSA national headquarters in 2003 to serve as Director of Education. In 2010 he was promoted to the position of National Secretary, a job that entails working with local lodges and study centers across the country. David also manages the prison program as well as the National Lodge of the TSA. He is the author of Serving a Higher Purpose which was recently published by Quest Books.

Presentation and Story Reading by Kate Gould followed by a discussion

"Brother Earth, Sister Sky" a message from Chief Seattle, paintings by Susan Jeffers. Our meeting will consist of a narrated story, art, and the idea of letting go. During our journey here on earth we face the sacrifice of letting go and not knowing the future. To allow ourselves to be at peace in the present moment of unknowing helps acknowledge our humanity. We will discuss what it is when one can let go and sacrifice the knowing. Bring a warm blanket and something hot to drink. I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful face.

Raja Yoga & Kriya Yoga
Presentation by Roy Thibodeau

Presentation and discussion around the Liberating Science of Raja and Kriya Yoga.  Description and definition of Yoga, Raja Yoga, and Kriya Yoga including Patanjali’s Eightfold Path, the various paths of Yoga, and the techniques of Kriya Yoga with discussion, questions, and answers.  Since the complete explanation of the techniques of Kriya Yoga is given through initiation by a Guru or Spiritual Teacher, Roy will be giving a broad explanation of Kriya Yoga.  

Roy was first introduced into the science of Raja and Kriya in December of 1971 when he graduated from Western Michigan University and received the gift of the ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’.  His thirst for Truth and Self Realization or enlightenment became unquenchable and in March of 1972, he met my Guru, Yogacharya J. Oliver Black, and was initiated into Kriya Yoga by him in June of that year.  In December of that year, he moved to Song of the Morning to live at the ashram with his Guru.  He lived there for 3 years, moved to the Gaylord area, was married by Yogacharya, and started a family.  He and his wife Mary Ann currently live in Grosse Pointe and both have been practicing and teaching Yoga and Meditation for over 45 years.
