Love Is a Secret: The Mystic Quest for Divine Love
By Dr. Andrew Vidich

“Over the last 5000 years, inspired leaders and giants of all the great spiritual traditions have produced a rich collection of writings describing the transcendent states of love they have experienced. This book draws on all the great wisdom traditions from Taoism to Christianity, from Islam to Judaism, to describe the psychology of humankind’s deepest spiritual encounters.

“It identifies 10 distinct psychological states common to all spiritual experience. A study of the specific characteristics of each state reveals that mystics from widely different theologies, times and cultures have experienced God’s love in remarkably similar ways. Their words show us what intimate encounters with “The Great Beloved” feel like, and how we can cultivate and achieve these mystical states in our own lives.

“The compassionate wisdom in the pages of this book is a moving testament to the universal majesty, variety and splendor of the experience of God’s unconditional love. This is a book which seekers and students will enjoy for its insight as well as its message of hope: that Divine Love is available to all who seek it with humility and grace, and those who in its radiance are not only transfigured, but empowered to change the world.”

​”This book eloquently describes the real life-work of every mature human being in every great culture of humanity.”  Shaikh Nur al-Jerrrahi ​USA Leader of al Jerrahi Sufi Order.

American Legion Post #160/West Seattle Veterans Center Support Project @ Hide Map West Seattle American Legion
Aug 25 @ 8:28 am – 9:28 am

The Mission:

To cleanup, build, paint, and landscape at your West Seattle Veterans Center which is home to American Legion Post #160.

The Why:

Legion volunteers have struggled for a few years to finish this remodel. With a generous donation from the West Seattle YMCA, Post #160 needs your help to finish the basement and paint the exterior for its 2nd Phase to be complete. 3rd Phase will be tackling the west wing of the building and turning it into an office space were veteran non-profits can set up shop and improve the lives of veterans, their families and the City of Seattle.

We need you to help make this happen. Come to work, meet new people and make a difference. It’s time to Report for Duty in your community!

You decide how you want to play. You will also have the opportunity to post your act of kindness on our Compassion Map.

From September 11th to 12th, we want to honor veterans and first responders.

We encourage families to participate and get started on the road to compassion.

From the Voice of Lady Compassion:

There is a reality that is worth stepping into today. A sacred time and space that encourages you to rise and step forward into what matters inside you. A sacred world where all beings open their eyes to an inclusive sunlit new day.  A container that knows your next move is precious…… your next breath is courageous……. the next hand you touch is held with gratitude….. the next words you speak do matter.

The morning sun reaches into every single heart on this planet reminding us that we are all members of the “International Kindness Team”.

Let’s honor this moment knowing this shared timeless truth: “Compassion is the antidote to the fear, disconnection, and isolation of our time.”

An inner genuine smile begins to blossom ripple waves of win-win -win-win- win over the planet’s suffering with this ancient door opening to remember a way of living where we all impact a better world.

In the silence of this day all eyes reach the sky discovering a vision written in the white clouds in all languages, “Compassion is our power source.” These words imprint an intention that moves us all into a unified action song of The Compassion Games. This invitation in the sky is what unites us in our hearts through The Annual Compassion Games for 11 days in Global Unity starting September 11th National Day of Service through September 21st International Day of Peace. The next hand you touch voice you hear tree you see is also playing with you. This day ignites a spark inside all hearts beating a common challenge to elevate caring actions. This participation starts within self into pure love and acceptance. This space invites you to celebrate the relationship with others around you and the connection to others across the globe in the next 11 days as your team. All 37 trillion cells in your body and 7.5 trillion people have the chance challenge this planet we call home with the largest compassion challenge ever. “When we play together everyone, everything, and the planet Earth wins.”

Adelaide, Australia; Angers, France; Antalya, Turkey; Koblenz, Germany; Lima, Peru; Maseru, Lesotho; Oita, Japan; Old Orlu, Nigeria; Saltillo, Mexico; Taichung, Taiwan; Xishuangbanna, China. This 5th annual September Concert is a celebration of peace and humanity through music. The Austin Sister Cities Committees are “citizen diplomats” and volunteers, who foster friendly relations and understanding between the citizens of Austin and our sister cities around the world and promote Austin’s educational, cultural, and economic presence in the international community.This event is free and open to the public!
Born in 2002 as a small, local grassroots effort, the September Concert has grown to global proportion with a mission to promote global peace. There are now over 200 September Concerts across the world. (Sponsoring Organizations: The City of Austin, Austin Community College, Continuing Education-Global Learning Institute, Austin Sister Cities International and Sister Cities International).
[September 10 – 21 is Global Austin’s WELCOMING WEEK – a series of events throughout Austin that highlights the contributions of international visitors and immigrants to the community. These events will bring together foreign- and U.S.-born community members in a spirit of unity.
Welcoming Week, coincidentally, coincides with Peace Day Austin (9/11-9/21). Because the missions and interests of Global Austin and Peace Day Austin are comparable, several local organizations have come together to facilitate a city-wide celebration of the diversity that is Austin and the International Day of Peace. We are many organizations – with many activities and events.]

WOBEON- Austin World Music Festival @ Ironwood Hall
Sep 12 @ 5:00 pm – Sep 13 @ 1:00 am

Wobeon Announces 3rd Annual Austin World Music Festival and Adds Jazz Fusion Festival!
Star Power Includes Billy Cobham Spectrum 40, Vieux Farka Toure and Scott Henderson Trio
TICKETS: http://wobeonfest.com/tickets2015

AUSTIN, TX – WOBEONFEST returns to Ironwood Hall in Downtown Austin this September, marking the third year of the homegrown festival with a global reach. In addition to the World Music Festival, the organizers have added a Jazz Fusion Festival to the 2-day gathering, which will feature drum legend Billy Cobham (of Mahavishnu Orchestra fame) and guitar great Scott Henderson on Sunday, September 13th. Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Toure, who is fondly referred to as the “Jimi Hendrix of the Sahara,” will headline the World Music Festival on Saturday, September 12th. Festival attendees can also participate in the pre-festival conference comprised of panel discussions and individual presentations specifically designed for internationally-minded Texans. Billy Cobham brings his Spectrum 40 quartet with jazz greats Dean Brown and Ric Fierabracci to the inaugural Jazz Fusion Festival. The band celebrates the music of Cobham’s first album and performs in the spirit of the rich 1970s Fusion era. Scott Henderson and his new trio with Travis Carlton and Alan Hertz will also be featured. Henderson is best known for his innovative work with fusion band Tribal Tech, and for his role with Joe Zawinul and The Zawinul Syndicate. Festival Founder Jakes Srinivasan speaks on the event’s new extension: “We are always looking at breaking new ground with the kind of music we curate. If you see the many, many shows and artists we’ve promoted and presented over the last 3 years, you’ll see that you can’t necessarily put these bands in neat boxes.”He elaborates, “All music is world music, as they say, and there’s a huge pool of great artists – even right here in our own backyard that are incredibly exciting to watch and hear, but for whatever reason don’t get the same share of voice or airplay as we think they deserve. World Music falls in that category, so does Jazz Fusion.” Jazz fusion is a progressive amalgamation of Rock and Jazz that blossomed in the ’70s and ’80s, and continues to have a tremendous global, yet simultaneously niche, following. Fans of legendary artists like Chick Corea, Miles Davis, and Weather Report continue to harbor their passion for jazz fusion even today. Of late, bands like Grammy®-winning Snarky Puppy are bringing new fans to this exciting genre. In 2014, Wobeon introduced Dallas-based jazz fusion band Funky Knuckles to festival fans and received great feedback. Producing separately-programmed days with single-day ticketing for each of the two genres allows both audience bases to get a full sampling of music closest to their interest. Local jazz guitarist Glenn Rexach, rising fusion stars Curious Android, and local group Collin Shook Quintet round out the lineup. Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Toure and his quintet headline the 3rd annual World Music Festival, the most prominent festival of its kind in the capital city. The son of the legendary Ali Farka Toure, Vieux brings a fiery electric rock and blues edge to his melodic dexterity. Also confirmed are Ugandan global fusion multi-instrumentalist Kinobe and Global Junction, local Afrobeat favorite Hard Proof, Eastern Soul diva Naga Valli and Brazilian-influenced outfit Mente Clara. Austin-based Atlas Maior returns to the festival and Bollywood dance troupe Agni the Dance Company. The SunRay Project will provide tunes for the World Music Festival after party. Wobeon has featured renowned artists from all corners of the world, from Angola to Morocco to Brooklyn, and from right here in Austin. Afropop queen Angelique Kidjo, Bermuda reggae sensation Collie Buddz, Electro-cumbia party starters Bomba Estereo, and big beat bhangra juggernauts Red Baraat have all performed at the gathering, along with local favorites like Atash, Bramaya, and Maracatu Texas. This festival is made possible in part by the generosity and support of organizations such as KUTX Radio Austin, the City of Austin Cultural Affairs Division of the Economic Development Department, Texas Folklife, Ironwood Hall and others.

Usha Akella- “The Rosary of Latitudes” @ Austin Community College- Rio Grande Campus- Kramer Gallery, Bldg 3000
Sep 14 @ 7:00 pm

In celebration of the International Day of Peace and Austin’s Poems for Peace Initiative, Usha Akella will read from her new book ‘The Rosary of Latitudes.’ In THE ROSARY OF LATITUDES, poet, author and playwright Usha Akella investigates her Indian identity with place and travel through poems, prose and photographs. While the beads on her rosary come from different latitudes in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia, she has found a way to combine them in a harmonious collection that flows like water and sings in many voices. As she travels from country to country, Akella explores a wide range of cultural and spiritual matters, including the paradoxical nature of identity and the many-layered process one must face to reconcile the splintered parts of one’s self. Just as Pablo Neruda and Walt Whitman explored travel and place, THE ROSARY OF LATITUDES shows readers how travel has shaped and informed Akella’s literary outlook on life through language, rhythm and landscape. This reading is part of the Peace Day Austin activities. (Presented by the Austin Community College Arts and Humanities Division and Co-sponsored by the Austin Community College Peace and Conflict Studies Center).

Ralph White is one of those rare men who has said yes to life far more than he has retreated into safety.”

Tonight, Open Center co-founder and pioneer of the consciousness movement Ralph White will discuss his new memoir, The Jeweled Highway: On the Quest for a Life of Meaning. He will offer us a rare glimpse into how he embarked on a spiritual quest into a new worldview, the experience of opening to the mystical, and the contours of a life dedicated to the creation of a more sacred and ecological culture.
Ralph will share with us his early years in the Celtic world and gritty Northern England, his travels down Route 66, hitchhiking to Machu Picchu, and hiking across the Eastern Himalayas into Tibet. He will also speak on the resurgence of the Western Esoteric Tradition and on the global network of holistic centers and why they serve as focal points for the emergence of a saner and wiser world.

International Coffee Morning- Topic: The Diversity that is Austin @ University Presbyterian Church
Sep 16 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Coffee Mornings are an American tradition. Friends get together for a cup of coffee — or tea or juice — and tasty snacks. They share resources they have found, offer each other support, make new friendships
GlobalAustin Coffee Mornings always include a program. The topic for the 9/16/15 International Coffee Morning is “The Diversity that is Austin.” (Host and Sponsor: Global Austin).
[September 10 – 21 is Global Austin’s WELCOMING WEEK – a series of events throughout Austin that highlights the contributions of international visitors and immigrants to the community. These events will bring together foreign- and U.S.-born community members in a spirit of unity.
Welcoming Week, coincidentally, coincides with Peace Day Austin (9/11-9/21). Because the missions and interests of Global Austin and Peace Day Austin are comparable, several local organizations have come together to facilitate a city-wide celebration of the diversity that is Austin and the International Day of Peace. We are many organizations – with many activities and events.]

Resilient Families Project @ Hotel Louisville @ Hotel Louisville
Sep 17 @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Resilient Families Project Programs @WCM’s Hotel Louisville @ Hotel Louisville Chapel
Sep 17 @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm

The Resilient Families Project provides educational experiences to strengthen families and promote resilience and wellness for children and parents experiencing homelessness. This project and its programs serve the residents of Wayside Christian Mission’s Hotel Louisville and Wayside Christian Mission’s Emergency Homeless Shelter. The Resilient Families Project (RFP) was established as a partnership of faculty from the University of Louisville’s Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and staff at Wayside Christian Mission. We gratefully acknowledge support from the University of Louisville’s Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and the University of Louisville’s Ideas to Action (i2A) Program and the Office of Community Engagement.

Our three programs take place from 6-8:30pm every Thursday at Hotel Louisville, and serve more than 100 family members. These programs aim to promote: (1) healthy attachment relations, (2) a sense of community / belonging, (3) interactive reading, and (4) school readiness (and readiness for the world!) in children and families.

(1) The Resilient Family Program (developed and led by Dr. Lora Haynes) is offered from 6-7pm on Thursdays, and provides a structured learning forum for children and parents to strengthen interactive reading, and engage in shared learning activities. The evidence-based practice of dialogic reading is employed, and carefully selected children’s storybooks are read aloud as a platform for promoting literacy and motivation toward reading, as well as sensitive, healthy interactions and positive attachment between caregivers and children. It is, furthermore, our mission to promote a strong sense of family (family matters!) and community caring (Compassionate Louisville! http://www.louisvilleky.gov/CompassionateCity/). It is our ultimate goal to improve school readiness (and readiness for the world) in these children and their families. Positive messages of resilience, mindfulness and compassion are conveyed in this community/family hour through a steady schedule of reading, music/singing, and dance/movement. We often have guest speakers from the Louisville community and from non-profit agencies who present their mission and needs to our families so that those in attendance are routinely asked to consider “how can I help?” and give back to the community. More than 100 parents and children attend and more than 18 University of Louisville students and 4 Hotel Louisville staff assist in the program.

(2) The Resilient Child/Adolescent Program (developed and led by Dr. Lora Haynes) is offered from 7-8:30pm on Thursdays, provides age-appropriate learning and enrichment activities including art, reading, homework and tutoring, music and dance, aimed at further promoting school-readiness and social/emotional skills. Typically more than 50 children attend. About 60% of children are under the age of five. More than 35 University of Louisville students and 3 Hotel Louisville staff assist in the program.

(3) The Resilient Parent Program (led by Dr. Lora Haynes and Valerie Mansfield, developed by Dr. Barbara Burns) is offered from 7-8:30pm on Thursdays and provides an empirically-validated strengths-based program focused on resilience and compassion, communication skills, and child management skills. Didactic material, discussion and reflection are enhanced by games, and crafts that underscore parenting strengths to promote strong and healthy parent-child relationships, child health and wellness. Interactive discussions on such topics as self-care and handling stress, discipline, self-esteem, building support networks, child development, compassionate listening, and communicating effectively. Typically 40-50 parents participate, and 7 University of Louisville students and 2 Hotel Louisville staff assist in the program.

Sep 19 @ 4:00 am

This One People, One Earth Medicine Walk is a two day walk beginning on Saturday, Sept 19th, starting at Inwood State Park, ending the next day Sunday, Sept 20th in Central Park to join the the 14th annual Vigil For International Peace and Ecology at BandShell stage.(www.vigil4internationalpeace.org)

Exact Location to meet for the Walk is:
Indian Road Cafe, 600 West 218th Street, near Indian road where the entrance to Inwood State Park is nearby. Meet at 7AM for the start of the walk.

Please note that the meeting location at Indian Road Cafe is only the starting route for the walk, if you want to meet Brother Northstar later, along the route over the two day walk, contact him directly by calling him at 617 614-7231.

Information and background about the walk:

The One People, One Earth Medicine Walk and the International Day of Peace Vigil.
On each equinox and solstice we do a One People, One Earth Medicine Walk through Manhattan to the sacred locations of this island.This walk is a vigil to release the blocks from within ourselves, humanity and our planet. And in doing so, we seek to re-activate the original purpose of this island, which is held captive and buried under tons of concrete and capitol gain. Also, we are simultaneously paying homage to the ancestors of this land known as Lenape, who by historical accounts were a giving and loving people living in harmony with the land. Even in a city as dense as New York, we leap through the veil of the urban energy to go back and align ourselves with the original purpose of this island, which the Lenape people called, “Mannahatta” (meaning: “land of many hills”) Mannahatta was a natural wonder – a paradise of peace, love, health and harmonious living. See photos ofLenape here.
The walking route:
This One People, One Earth Medicine Walk is a two day walk beginning on Saturday, Sept 19th, at Inwood State Park. We will start with morning sunrise prayer at the highest point in Inwood Park. We will walk from the park to the top of Broadway at 231st. We will walk down Broadway (Broadway is the Mohican Trail) We walk to 178 st. to get onto Riverside Park and carry our vigil through nature – down by the river, with trees and grass and plenty of places for bathroom stops. “The Lenape called the Hudson River Shatemuc, meaning “the river that flows both ways,” because the river alternates its flow from north to south along with the Atlantic tides. Shatemuc was an important water route for the Lenape who traded with other Native people living in villages along its banks.” If you click on the link, the photos will show just how beautiful a walk through what is closest to what it was when Manhattan was a paradise. Support vehicles, are welcome to follow along with food and water can follow along riverside drive and meet us at rest points which is every 60 blocks (3 miles). We will stop for 1 hour to eat lunch and walk until we reach the 66 st.
On Sunday,September 20th, the designated day of International Day of Peace, will continue walking along the bike trail down to Battery Park and then over the the National Museum for Native Americans and have closing ceremony in Bowling Green Park. From there we will shuttle over to Central Park to another sacred location known asSeneca Village, “the Black community that died so that Central Park can live.”
From there, we will carry all the higher frequencies we gathered from the walk of the island and pour them into the higher frequencies of the “Vigil for International Peace and Ecology” being held at Band Shell stage in Central Park. This is an event where people from all over the world will be gathered on this day to invoke a new planetary direction into our collective consciousness. Click on all links to learn more about this glorious quarterly walk. If spirit moves you to join the walk or participate as support vehicle contact me for further information.
In The Name of Liberation for Humanity and the Planet Earth, my Earth-Walk is in deep gratitude to you all.
