Singing HU

I know my spiritual path is not for everyone, and that's okay. I completely respect everyone's religion, faith, or whatever they find that helps them in having a better life, being happy, feeling fulfilled, having a greater connection with God or a higher source.

I wanted to share with you about an event where I will be the facilitator. If anyone is in the St. Louis area and would like to join me, I'd be most honored.

It's the Community HU, sponsored by Eckankar, as a community service.  I have the privilege of leading this love song to God.  That's all it is, singing HU, a love song to God. It doesn't matter what your faith, background, or anything... it's universal. Singing HU can be sung by anyone with an open heart... and that's what it does too, it opens your heart. You can also check out the HU here. And if you are on that site, I'd recommend watching the video, "Miracles in Your Life." It's one of the most stunning videos I've ever seen. Really. Okay, well, that's my opinion.

The Community HU is held every third Sunday at 11:00 AM, so if you can't make this one in October, there's always another.

Sunday, October 16, 2016
11:00 AM
St. Louis Eckankar Center
14538 Manchester Road, Suite 202
Ballwin, MO  63011

There's a big sign on the road to your left, about a mile west of 141. The building sits behind another building, so you can't see the St. Louis Eckankar Center when you are on Manchester. If you pass the entrance, you can turn left onto the next street (after the little shopping center that has a BreadCo) and then you'll turn left again at the first street. Take that down to the side parking lot (on your left). You'll then see the Eckankar sign on the side of the building.

There’s a beautiful book about HU, and its title says it all HU, the Most Beautiful Prayer.

It's filled with beautiful words and comes with a CD where many folks are singing HU. I have this CD in my car and I play it every time I get into my car.

Tell me what works for you when you are feeling down, stressed, worried, lonely. Or what you do when you are looking for guidance and protection.Or what you do to open your heart to more love and connect with God.

Sculpture on Campus 2016 SIUE and other stuff

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share that my daughter Jessica will be one of the 12 artists who will be a part of the Sculpture on Campus 2016 at SIUE. I wanted to include a poster here, but I can't figure out how to do it. Durp. You know taking it off Facebook--for me can be a bit tricky.

So here is the info:

Afruz Amighi: Visting Artist and Juror

This Friday, October 7 (yes, that'd be tomorrow)
4:00 PM Sculpture Walk
Departs from Art and Design West
6:00 PM Awards Ceremony and Reception

In addition there is an Exhibition Opening
Sculpture on Campus Revisited
SIUE Art Gallery, Art & Design West Building
6:00 PM

And if I'm not mistaken, or if it was the same place as last year when I attended as Jessica's friends were in the Sculpture on Campus, the gallery will be just across from the reception area.

The address:
Art & Design Building at SIUE - doesn't really have a numbered address, other than it's on Circle Drive.

Here's how I go:

I take 270 North to exit 9 which is IL-Route 157, go left and then that takes you right into the campus, and the Art & Design is on your left, so you have to go to the first place where you can turn left, and then head back the opposite way—you're kind of making a Uturn so to speak because as soon as you turn, then the road to Art & Design is the next one (Circle Drive). Go to Parking Lot B (on your right). Parking is free.

Take the sidewalk (by the parking kiosk) at the edge of the parking lot and you'll see a dome-like building (on your left) that you will pass. You kind of go down a bit of a hill and the first building past the dome building is the Art and Design building - and people should be hanging out in front of that building.

You can text me or call me if you get lost and need further direction. I'll keep my phone handy.

And my younger sister is going to be in a few craft shows and here is her info:

Fiber Arts House (that's the name of her business) will have a booth at the Florissant Old Town Fall Festival on Sunday, October 9, 11 am to 5 pm
Below is a flyer with the details of the festival.  

Unfortunately they do not assign booth locations until that morning, so I can't tell you exactly where to find her.


Fiber Arts House will be at the North County Community Church Craft and Vendor Fair on Saturday, November 19, 9 am to 2 pm
