New Moon Gong Bath, 6:30 p.m.

The new moon is the perfect time to create what you want to manifest in your life.  The sun and the moon’s gravitational pull at the time of the new moon can be overwhelming to those who are sensitive to energy.  The new moon gong bath assists us to cope with these energies, and stay connected with our mind, body and spirit, utilizing the moon energy as a healing experience. The sound of the gong “re-tunes” us on many levels, bringing us into harmony and deep levels of inner peace.  These sounds work on a cellular level as well as an emotional level.  Participants may bring a yoga mat and other items for their comfort (i.e. blanket, pillow, -eye cover, bottled water, journal).  You will be “bathed” in sound during this session.  The gong sounds will help detoxify the body.  (Be sure to drink plenty of pure water following the session.)  The sounds of the gong will remind you of your inner ability to be in bliss, as well as take you into a state of deep relaxation and peacefulness. 6:30 p.m. (Special opportunity this month: Stay and do the Sacred Group Chanting Circle immediately following the gong bath.) Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or

Cost:  $10 suggested love offering.

Location:  Unity of Des Moines, 414 31st St., Des Moines, Iowa

Sacred Sound Group Chanting Circle

In this sacred circle, we will chant and tone with others to create a powerful healing energy field.  You do not need to be a “singer.”  The chants are repetitive and fairly simple to help you enter a deep meditative state.  We will explore chants and do some simple vocal toning also.  We will chant with the harmonium and other instruments! This month we will meet at 7:30 p.m. immediately following the New Moon Gong Bath.  Contact Deb Jennings for more information. 515-371-0725 or

Cost:  $10 suggested love offering.

Celebrations of Spirit

Celebrations of Spirit Welcomes Valda H. Montgomery,

author of Just a Neighbor, a narrative depicting life during the 1950s and 1960s in the Centennial Hill neighborhood of Montgomery, AL. The author recounts fond, moving and even traumatic childhood memories involving her family and the families of Vernon Johns and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Valda Montgomery walked out of her high-school classroom to join the end of the march to Montgomery, Ala., where her family ran Harris House, a safe house for the Freedom Riders, which she maintains to this day. “Determination, determination, determination. We were always determined to have our rights. Most of the masses that you see in the protests were those of students—college students, high school students—because we had nothing to lose. When I look back at 17, it seems very young now. But 26 was also young. Martin Luther King was only 26. These were very young people that made these changes happen.”  Valda Harris Montgomery, PhD is an associate professor in the Clinical Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program at Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL.

The evening starts at 6:30 PM on Friday, March 18th.  No potluck this month.  $10 suggested donation.
