Remembering 3/11 – CRS Healing Circle to Benefit Ishinomaki, Japan
March 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST| $20
Organized by: CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing)
CRS and the One Note, One Spirit sound community invite you to join us on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 8 pm for a community healing circle to demonstrate oneness with the people of Tohoku, Japan affected by the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster of March 11, 2011. We will gather in a big circle to drum, sing, dance, play and remember the limitless strength and love of the people of Tohoku. By doing so, we will remind ourselves that we are the same, still shining and perfect as Love created us, and that our love and mind power can reach far beyond the limits of our bodies to work miracles for one another. So this event is as much for us as it is for the people in Japan. It’s for everyone.
Everyone can participate musically in the circle, and there will be performances by dancers Lale Sayoko of Bella Gaia and Shoko Tamai of Ninja Ballet and by musical acts Saco Yasuma & Sakurako Kataoka, LayLa Lulla, and Kana Kamitsubo Markovic. Additional acts may join.
Please feel free to bring your frame drum, rattle, flute, whistle, chimes, singing bowl, or other instrument. You don’t need to be experienced, only willing to join. If you don’t have an instrument you can express yourself with one of our rattles or with your voice or by clapping or making sound in your own way. In this circle, amateur and professional can both share their love equally. Together, we will learn to listen to one another without judgment as we express ourselves and come together through oneness of intention.
The event follows a free Opening Reception for the exhibition “The Color of Energy — Recent Paintings by Janet Morgan” which will take place from 6 – 8 pm. Have a glass of wine with the artist and then join in the healing circle.
There is a suggested donation of $20 cash (more is welcome!) and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the non-profit community center “O-Link House” in Ishinomaki-Shi, Ogatsu-Cho in the Miyagi prefecture of Tohuku, Japan, which was decimated by the disaster. O-Link House provides community arts, crafts, healing and cultural programming (even music circles for all levels like CRS) and advocacy for the people who remain in the most isolated part of Ishinomaki.
