Sunday Message: Let's Talk Treatment
with Rev. Amani Malaika
Special Music with the Amazing ABQ CSL Players 

Prayer is our oldest form of mind-body medicine and our most underutilized "technology." It has been called the ultimate wireless connection. Many of us don't think of leaving home without our smartphones, but what if prayer is a more relevant and potent technology for the times we live in--a technology that advances our experience of joy, fulfillment, and peace and extends this to others?
--Angela Montano, RScP

A Science of Mind practitioner, Angela Montano explains that prayer is powerful and one of the greatest tools we have at our disposal. Learning the form of affirmative prayer developed in Science of Mind is an incredible tool that not only advances all the good stuff for ourselves and others, but also is one of the best ways to get ourselves back to center, steeped in Truth.

Join us on Sunday as we harness the power of Spiritual Mind Treatment.

11:00 AM Sunday in the Sanctuary

Journey into the Womb of Love
Embodying the Qualities of the One Unity
with Maboud & Tara Andrea Swierkosz
What does it mean to live from the core of love deep inside our own being Through Dances of Universal Peace, song and silence, movement and stillness, group sharing and deep listening, we will embark on a journey towards Wholeness. We will extend an invitation to release our bodies to the Breath, which may carry and reveal certain Qualities of Unity, Wazifahs. When we invite these Qualities to live within and become embodied, hardened part of our humanity may soften and become more fluid, allowing us to live more fully in the Present with greater loving kindness, gentleness, fairness and compassion.

Please register with Susan Erika at (505) 235-0437 or Bring your own lunch. Thank you for being fragrance free. For more information, click here.

Saturday, March 28 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM in the Labyrinth Building. Sliding scale $45-$75. Mini retreat donation appreciated. Make checks out to Tara Andrea Swierkosz.

Board of Trustees
Have questions, suggestions, or comments? Please let the board know:

The monthly board meetings are where Board members review Center business through reports from the Treasurer, the Minister, and the Finance Committee and vote on matters as needed. It is a forum to bring new business and raise concerns. Community members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Monthly board meetings are typically the fourth Thursday of each month, starting at 6:00 PM. 

Board working sessions are meetings set aside specifically as work days to give us time to finish tasks, address topics not normally addressed in the monthly meetings, or when our work load is such that the monthly meeting is not enough time. These meetings are also open to the community. Working sessions will be called on an as-needed basis, typically on the second and/or fourth Thursdays of each month, starting at 6:00 PM.

Agendas for both types of meetings are posted in the lobby the Sunday prior to the meeting.

Your current Board of Trustee officers are:
President: Kenneth Winfrey
Vice President: Lisa Crawley
Treasurer: Cliff Wintrode
Secretary: Mickey Quintana
Assistant Secretary: Edker Matthews
Board Members: Caren Phillips, Paula Worley, and Rev. Amani Malaika (non voting)
