Social Permaculture event raises $$ for Radiance Foundation

I’m happy to report that the Social Permaculture workshop held in the Dome on 3/26/16 (see http://radiancetx.org/private-event-at-dome-326/) raised $500.00 for our Air Conditioner Replacement fund, bringing the total in the fund to $2305.00.

Do you have a lecture/meeting/other event you’d like to hold in the Dome?  Let John Burgess or Bill Christensen know.  It’s available for rent! *

 

*we’re currently restricted from offering rental for non-TM related meditation, yoga, or similar activities.

 

Private event at Dome, 3/26

We will be renting the Dome out on Saturday 3/26 to a group holding an all-day workshop on Social Permaculture.

Please make arrangements to meditate elsewhere on that day, both morning and evening.  Though they should theoretically be finishing up around program time, we expect that there will be some continuing activity after their program officially ends.

(They’re renting by the hour, so it’ll mean additional – much needed – funds for the Air Conditioner replacement)

Residents may also wish to take advantage of the African Food Trailer they’ll have out here for lunch.  I believe that the workshop participants are paying for their food as part of their fee, so please be prepared to pay for your meal if you do take advantage of the availability.

Do you have a lecture/meeting/other event you’d like to hold in the Dome?  Let John Burgess or Bill Christensen know.  It’s available for rent! *

Bevan Morris and 25th Anniversary of Dome

Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace will be making a stop in Austin as part of his current tour of US cities.

Coincidentally, his visit comes within a few days of the 25th anniversary of the inauguration of the Dome in October 1985. The Dome was inaugurated by Brahmachari Nadkishore, Dr. Neil Patterson, and Dr. Morris on their first ever visit to Radiance, shortly after its completion.

Join us for an inspiring talk by Dr. Morris in the Dome at 8pm.

Donations to cover costs of bringing Dr Morris to Austin will be greatly appreciated.
