Wed 28 Jan: Return to the Land of your Soul - Songs of Universal Peace with Ralph, 8pm

[4th Wednesday each month] The human voice as the most perfect instrument provides the possibility to connect with our soul and with God. This is why in many faith traditions the use of the voice plays an essential part. It resonates with the chakra system, activates the flow of subtle energies, upliftis the mood, balances mind and aura and can lead to a state of blissful joy. The deeper breathing activates and rejuvenates the body.

Chanting chooses sacred phrases or mantras from various traditions. They are sung repeatedly for minutes or hours and can create a strong feeling of community and connectedness.
Chanting can lead to mystic experiences beyond understanding. It helps to bring body mind and soul into balance and is very beneficial in our mind dominated society, especially for intellectuals.

We will be sharing heart centred chants from various traditions, some simple, some with harmonies (like Taiz).
Please bring a drink and an open heart, candles or other items for the center of our circle.

VENUE: Ralph's home in Cambridge.

Fri 30 Jan 2004: Does Cambridge want or need an Inter-faith space / centre?

Norah Al-Ani is Equalities Development Manager at Community Development, Cambridge City Council and manages the Equalities Development Team, working with and supporting minority communities in Cambridge. Her team also works to improve good equalities practice within Cambridge City Council.

Thu 26 Feb: begin of a 3 month "Self Knowledge" class, 8pm (not 7:30)

After a series of lectures "The knowledge of ancient Britain", an extraordinary class will start tonight.
It teaches eternal spiritual knowledge, which is beyond any religion and far beyond history as we are taught. It sets mythology, religion , spirituality and history into a much wider contents. As an example: in the preparatory lecture "King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table - Guardians of Ancinet Knowledge" we learned about Hyperborean (Tuatas of Danang, where Britain has its roots), Lemurian, Atlantean and Aryan cultures, the 4th dimension and Montserat, the symbolism of sword, chalice, stone and spear, the Holy Gral, the kabbala / tree of life, the symbolism of the round (= zero = fraternity without ego) table represented by the number 12 and more. The teachers seem to be humble and serving Divine wisdom - I recommend this class. Ralph

Fri 27th: Mila Ginsburskaya: "Inter-Faith experiences in Israel" & Miriam Feldman: "the Cambridge Muslim's Jewish Women's Dialogue Group", talk & discussion, 7:45 for 8pm

Miriam Feldmann is a second-year undergraduate at Cambridge University reading Theology. After spending time over the summer working in an Israeli-Arab peace village teaching art, she returned to Cambridge with the hope of igniting similar coexistence work amongst students. A few months she set up MoJoW - the Muslim-Jewish Women's Dialogue Group in Cambridge. They meet three times termly and discuss issues such as women's modesty - a topic where members from both religions can find common ground for dialogue. Her final goal of the group is to make a trip to Israel/Palestine and be hosted a similar dilaogue group there.

Ludmila Ginsbursky is a student at the Center forJewish-Christian Relations in Cambridge. Born in Russia (St. Petersburg), she immigrated to Israel where she worked as a librarian. She writes:
"This was the turning point of my life. The encounter with Christians from all over the world who studied Judaism with such a great enthusiasm has kindled in me curiosity to the tradition of my own people as well as the desire to understand the ways of development and interaction between different religions.
"I have been involved in the activities of the Interfaith Encounter Association, which made me more aware of the importance of developing the real dialogue between adherents of different faiths and religious communities. I attended the Jewish-Muslim study group, where young people - Jews and Muslims - met to read and discuss together core-texts of their respective traditions."

            Cambridge
      Sat 28 Feb 2004

Live music and surprise presentations! Ralph's current living situation is not much suitable for larger public parties. So for the first time Ralph's famous Rainbow party will be held in a public space, which allows plenty of people and activities.
This might actually be a step towards integrating one of Ralph's visions: to hold a Ra in bo w Disco (bare foot boogie dico?) combined with the personal touch of 'bring and share food & drink' of the Rainbow parties.
As usual the most interesting are the people from all walks of life, most of them have some connection with the Ra in bo w Network Cambridge.
Please: bring something to eat or drink, or help for 30 minutes at the door, with music (live, tapes or CD's) or in the kitchen (best place!) & maybe your instrument (we hope for a scratch band). Do come early - otherwise you'll miss something.
Strictly no smoking and no drugs, no alcohol, no meat please.
Cost: £4 - or £2 if you bring something to drink or eat or help for 1/2 hour.
VENUE: Bharat Bhavan (Old Library) 119 Mill Road / railway bridge, Cambridge [web map]

Thu 22 Apr: Sari Gl Dervishes perform 'The Dance of the Planets', 7:30pm

Sari Gl Dervishes return to England 22- 25 April 2004. They will perform 'The Dance of the Planets' in Cambridge, Oxford and London, followed by a one-day workshop in London.
They will appear at the Cambridge Corn Exchange. On Sunday the 25th, they will hold an intimate all-day workshop at 11 Mandeville Place, London where they will share with participants more about their practices and training.
Sari Gl are the only European group trained in Konya Turkey following the teachings of the great mystic Jelalledin Rumi (Mevlana).

Massimiliano Barrotta, one of the dancers, says, "The Dance of the Planets is an instrument for communion with the Divine, where movement and music are the vehicle to get to a divine awareness. This journey in search of the self has been defined by saints of all ages as 'the search for the Beloved leading to the Divine Presence'". The beauty, harmony and sobriety of this path is represented in each passage of the dance, which has been codified by Sultan Waled, son and successor of Rumi as leader of his Sufi order.

Over 800 years old, the Dance of the Planets symbolises the possible spiritual journey of every human who strives to reunite with the Divine. The non-stop whirling and Mid-Eastern music transports those fortunate enough to witness the performance into a more profound state. The dancer's white robes, symbolising purity and tall wool hats, representing the abandonment of ego, moving in precise patterns across an uncluttered stage, help to create an atmosphere that goes beyond words.

Tickets are 20/ 18 concession. Tickets for the workshop are 50. If you purchase a performance ticket, the workshop costs 41. For more information, visit the Sari Gl web site, www.sarigul.org
Ticket information Cambridge: Corn Exchange - 01223 357851 - Workshop: El Are Cultural Association- 0790 609 9195

Province of Iran. An experience not to be missed! Details see www.davodazad.com and www.srcf.ucam.org/persian
