Fri 28 Jan: Cambridge Inter-Faith Group AGM, 7.45 for 8 pm

The Cambridge Inter-Faith Group (www.cam.net.uk/home/interfaith) invites all to our Annual General Meeting with an open discussion on how best to represent both majority and minority faiths in public events in Cambridge.

Also the chair Ralph Nimmann plans to move to Latvia and the committee needs "new blood"- so you are invited to get involved.

    Fri 15 Apr.: Khyrkhaas - CONCERT. Music from the Mountain-Steppes of Khakassia, 8pm

    This is the first concert in the UK tour of Khyrkhaas - from Khakassia, a land of shamans and ancient burial mounds that lies within the golden Sayan-Altain mountain ring in southern Siberia. Master musician Sergei Charkov and his daughter, Julia, come together as Khyrkhaas to perform traditional music and their own compositions that evoke their unique landscape and culture. Sergei performs with overtone and undertone-singing (khai) styles, including the gravelly tones used in epics to accompany the souls of the dead to the after-world. He makes and plays all Khyrkhaas' instruments - 12-string chatkhan zither, 2-string yykh fiddle, 2-string khomus lute, syylas pipe and shaman dungur drum. Julia is the first female Khakas musician to dare to challenge the formerly male preserve of khai performance. Her hard edged voice complements her equally superb musicianship and dance.

    6th-8th May: Introduction to original Kriya Yoga
    As preserved in it's undiluted form through his dynastic tradition

    The 19th century sage Lahiri Mahasaya (see photo) is revered throughout India as one of the greatest householder saints. His life and teachings became known to the West through the book, Autobiography of a Yogi, by Parahmahansa Yogananda. Shibendu Lahiri, great grandson of Lahiri Mahasaya and the current representative of his dynastic tradition, will introduce the techniques of the original Kriya Yoga as taught to Lahiri Mahasaya and his master, Babaji. No modifications to the techniques and teachings have been permitted in this Rishi tradition, so those receiving instruction can be sure that they are obtaining an authentic and potent spiritual transmission. Shibendu will also offer advanced instruction to initiates.

    Shibendu invites seekers to share the insight that flowers, generation after generation, in the Lahiri dynasty through the Kriya process. Like his ancestors, Shibendu Lahiri is also a householder with a family and past career. Kriya Yoga is intended to offer householders a deeply spiritual path that is practicable while remaining engaged in normal life.

    This is a rare opportunity to learn directly from a master of the original Kriya Yoga. Shibendu speaks excellent English and is a powerful and engaging communicator whose words have the force of direct spiritual experience.

    "Don't propagate your faith asserting that it is the best and the last word. Find out if your faith can reduce conflict in yourself, in your family, in your society, in your country and also among nations. Don't convert your faith into a fetter, make it an instrument of freedom." (Shibendu Lahiri).

    Fri 3rd June to Thu 9th June '05: WHAT THE #$! DO WE KNOW?!", the film now playing in Cambridge & throughout the U.K

    The extraordinary transformational film, “What the Bleep Do We Know?!” about the convergence of leading edge science with spirituality is now playing throughout the U.K.
    It’s a rare delight to see consciousness and spirituality treated so intelligently and expansively, with such humor and style on the big screen.

    What the Bleep Do We Know!? is an extraordinary project which transcends traditional cinema and presents a hybrid 'feature documentary' that challenges and inspires its audience - it's a unique cinematic creation - really three films in one, interwoven like a DNA helix, into an original tapestry.

    It's a documentary. It's a story. It has mind-blowing special effects. These three elements combine to bring about a film experience that will rock your mind and lift your soul! It's a new genre about a New Worldview for a new audience. This outrageous film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.
    For more information, please check out www.whatthebleep.com

    In Cambridge playing at the Arts Picturehouse (38 St Andrew's Street): www.picturehouses.co.uk/site/cinemas/Cambridge/local.htm from Fri 3rd June to Thu 9th June

    After the bomb attacks in London, the Cambridge Inter-Faith Group (www.cam.net.uk/home/interfaith) invites all people of faith to a symbolic solidarity visit to the Cambridge Mosque this Saturday for the short noon prayer at 1:15pm.

    We feel sympathy with the vast majority of the Muslim community, when their religion gets abused by a tiny minority and is publicly connected with terrorism. How would you feel if your faith were repeatedly named and shamed for terrorist attacks?
    In times of crisis, all people of faith are challenged not to follow the path of hate and war, but rather practise compassion, love and understanding.

    Please remove your shoes and wash yourself if you can before entering the prayer room of the Mosque (washrooms are inside) - ladies should cover their head. Contacts: Cambridge Inter-Faith Group, Ralph Nimmann 01223 510442 www.cam.net.uk/home/interfaith

    In the midst of about 2500 people attending the ceremony in the Church of Reconciliation, a woman - probably mentally disturbed - struck Brother Roger violently with knife blows. He died a few moments later. His mission was to reconcile Christian divisions.
    In its sorrow, the Taizé Community thanks all those who are supporting it by their affection and their prayer.
    More on the home page of the Taizé community in France: www.taize.ch/temp/en. Taizé chants with Ralph are every 2nd & 4th Sunday each month, 9:30am - everyone is welcome - NO experinece required. Details seeTaize harmony Chanting

It's a "no frills" affair - cash bar (closes 11pm) with a few nibbles as I'm having to hire the venue & sound system, and the emphasis is, obviously, on dancing (general/freestyle/no style).
    Feel free to bring along any friends, especially those keen on dancing.
    The bar closes 11pm.
    I'd like to get a rough idea of numbers so PLEASE LET ME KNOW if you are planning on coming and how many.

    The venue is smoke free, people who can't survive without a puff will have to go outside. Free entry on this occasion - donations for Kashmir Earthquake are welcome. Hope you can make it!

    Wed 26 Nov: Return to the Land of your Soul - Songs of Universal Peace with Ralph, 8pm

    Tonight some film students from Sussex want to make a recording of our singing and use it as background sound for a short film about me and my life. PLEASE do come and support me with your voice! Ralph
    [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 Taizé).
    Please bring a drink and an open heart, candles or other items for the center of our circle.

It is a creative exploration for both of them as this is a new endeavour. The idea is to explore the world of Colour, Light and Sound in a profound but light and playful manner. Working with mandalas is generally speaking a meditative process so there will be periods of relative quiet as well as the more dynamic vocal times. The workshop is intended to be a flow which moves in and out of various dimensions and media. You are invited to join in the flow and make your unique contribution!
