Spirituality & Spring Rolls: A monthly lunch chat to enrich, empower, and discover

table_with_food_Present

Feed body and soul among new friends as we nestle in a quiet alcove of the elegant, meditative space of a restaurant named Present. With a bubbling fountain beside us and twinkling stars overhead, we will explore together questions like these:

  • Who am I really?
  • Can I use my thoughts to bring forth more good in my life?
  • How can I expand the flow of divine guidance?
  • What does it mean to be fully present?
  • How can I best serve?

Although it is moderately priced, several reviewers have called Present a hidden jewel and the area’s best Vietnamese restaurant. Its menu encourages mindfulness for full enjoyment of the whimsically-named dishes like Smokey Petal, Pilgrim on the Beach, or Gregarious Lemongrass Chicken. Tasty vegetarian and vegan options are available. Entrees from $9. See menu.

Your hosts are several folks with long experience on the spiritual path and deep respect for all religions. No dogma or right answers, but a special interest in mature expression of New Thought —  Ancient Wisdom. On any given Sunday your fellow diners may include interfaith chaplains and ministers, practioners/ministers of New Thought, and those intrigued by integral metaphysics.

Meetup_rsvpYou buy your lunch, we add a complimentary spring roll for all those who rsvp. Please specify vegetarian or prawn & pork when you sign up at our Celebrating Spirituality Meetup event. You will also find there instructions for ordering and paying for your meal ahead online.

We are eager to meet you and hear of your journey!

A Sacred Sock Hop
Freestyle Dancing  with a Sacred Intention

Monthly, normally on 4th Saturdays
Next: Saturday Nov 26
7-9 pm

Celebration Center for Spiritual Living
2840 Graham Road, Falls Church VA
ample free parking

Bring your intentions and join us as we dance them into the present moment. We’ll circle up to introduce ourselves and the intentions we’ll be dancing for.  We’ll surrender to the beats of world music ranging from Hindu chants to African drums to techno pop and maybe even a golden oldie or two. Wear loose or yoga-style clothes and appropriate shoes (barefoot dancing OK). Appropriate for all fitness levels and faiths (including those who consider themselves “spiritual,” rather than identifying with a specific religion).

Our Hosts

 Jenn Fayjennfay knows the amazing results of sacred dance. It is a powerful means of accessing wisdom and support for any challenge.

Whether she is guiding others in yoga, meditation, dance, or writing, she has a steadfast vision to help people relax into a creative awareness about new possibilities for a more meaningful and joy-filled life.
