Dear Friends on the Spiritual Path, as many of you know, my dear mom, Adeline Soul, embarked on the Inner Journey this past May. Steven and I had the Blessing of attending her in her last two weeks of human life, which was a deeply intimate and sacred experience.
Since that time, our task has been to prepare Parents’ ranch for sale by clearing and cleaning it. This is a very large and intensive task, as Parents lived at this place on the Land for over fifty years. In consideration of this, I have decided to take a hiatus from offering classes and other events until we complete this task and have a rest. Our thanks to all who have attended and supported our activities; we treasure your Presence in our lives and our time together with you.
We request your Blessing prayers with gratefulness. If you would like to connect for spiritual guidance, or to say “hi”, please use the Contact Form. If you would like to be notified when classes and events resume, please complete the form “Sign Up For Event Notices” on our Home page: https://kalyancenter.org/.
Loving Blessing Wishes to All; we look forward to seeing you again soon :-).

Friends, we hope you will join us to celebrate the release of Joyce Yarrow’s new novel, Zahara and the Lost Books of Light, a suspenseful historical fiction mystery revolving around the Convivencia – a time in medieval Spain where Jews, Muslims and Christians lived in harmony. We will be sharing mystical poetry, music, and a reading from Zahara by Joyce. Please use the Contact tab to request the Zoom link. We look forward to your joining us!
From Joyce about her inspiration for Zahara:
How a Song Became A Book
I was inspired to write Zahara and the Lost Books of Light by a song that I performed with the world music vocal ensemble Abráce. Quando el Rey Nimrod was composed in Ladino – the language of Spain’s exiled Jews – and the lyrics tell the story of the birth of Abraham. I would often introduce the song to our audience along with a fervent wish that the world’s three Abrahamic religions will someday acknowledge their common origins and live in peace.
Zahara is based on the premise that La Convivencia – a short time in Spanish history when Jews, Muslims, and Christians lived in harmony—was not totally destroyed by the Inquisition. Instead, several thousand Hebraic and Arabic manuscripts were rescued from the million that were burned and hidden away in the foothills of the Sierra Madre.
In consideration of Corona virus concerns, we have decided to offer Kalyan Center activities online only until further notice. We will let you know when this changes.
We love you and value your presence. If you would like to join Healing Circle and/or Spiritual Awakening Class online via Messenger, FaceTime or Whats App, please use the Contact tab to let me know by Thursday morning on the week you wish to join.
We will be recessed for July 4th. Please join us on 7/11 for Healing Circle 7:30pm and Spiritual Awakening Class 8-8:45pm. Happy Interdependence Day with Love to All. One planet and one people. Peace, peace, peace…
