Knoxville Meetup Discussion: Raising Your Awareness of Life: Dreams and Past Lives

Wednesday, May 6, 7:00–8:00 p.m.
Earth Fare (Turkey Creek), 10903 Parkside Dr., Knoxville

Why do we often face such unusual challenges in our lives? There is always a purpose. If we make ourselves more aware of the subtle reasons or history behind the experiences that Spirit brings to us, we can take an active role in our progress. Dreams are an excellent way to open up our Inner Worlds and explore the hidden connections within our life’s circumstances. Likewise, the source of our troubles may be part of an ongoing play of life that began many lifetimes ago. Illuminating the origins of our lessons and opportunities often unravels some of the challenge! Please come share with us, and listen to other like-minded people; you are not alone!

The Law of Cause and Effect, or the Law of Karma, is always at play in your whole life. Karma means doing things that help you or hurt you. Sometimes people think of karma as bad.

Tri-Cities Meetup Discussion: Spiritual Growth and Transformation

Saturday, May 9, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Perkins Restaurant and Bakery, 2608 North Roan Street, Johnson City

Life is a challenge. Sometimes things don’t go our way, or the unexpected happens and the best laid plans can crumble. Why is that? Change can be hard, especially the kinds of spiritual change that make us re-evaluate our attitudes, choices and comfort zones. Yet the times of greatest growth and transformation are often borne out of the ashes of these rough spots in our lives. Let’s share how we can look upon these moments as opportunities to open our hearts to God’s love for us.

HU Songs in Tennessee

“Singing HU has been practiced for thousands of years in one form or another for inner attunement. In the same way a musician can use a tuning fork to find the right pitch, the person singing HU tunes in to a higher spiritual awareness.”

Monthly and weekly HU Songs are held in the following areas and times. The HU Song lasts about 20 to 30 minutes with time afterwards for visiting and sharing. Everyone is welcomed. To learn more about the HU, and to hear what it sounds like when sung or chanted in a group, click here.
