Shaman's Call

Following musical podcast is a collection of solo flute pieces from Navajo-Ute musician R. Carlos Nakai is an evocative delight. The album consists of mostly original material, from the composition “Canyon Reverie,” to the improvisational “In Media Res,” to “Athabascan Song,” an arrangement of a traditional song. The latter in particular stands out, with a faster rhythm and more lifting melody than most of the other pieces. There’s also “Ancient Dreams,” performed on a bone whistle; the instrument almost exceeds the upper range of human hearing, and Nakai occasionally sounds like he’s imitating bird calls. A classically trained musician, Nakai blends musical traditions to create a whole that reminds one, on occasion, of Japanese shakuhachi music. 

This album best captures the timeless serenity of the solo Native American flute. R. Carlos Nakai’s music speaks to the spirit with a simplicity that transcends place and time. Includes original compositions, traditional Athabascan and Omaha melodies.

Ray Carlos Nakai (a.k.a. R Carlos Nakai ) was born in Flagstaff Arizona on April 16, 1946 and now resides in Tucson, Arizona. He is a Native American of Navajo-Ute heritage who began his musical career as a freshman at Northern Arizona University studying brass instruments.
Nakai says that most of his inspiration comes from the expressions of native communities and his desire to preserve his own Native American heritage. In addition, he likes to blend his native music with that of other cultures thereby helping to preserve their heritage as well.

Synthesis of Yoga

This reading completes Chapter 2 The Status of Knowledge, Part II The Yoga of Integral Knowledge, pages 303 – 307. Sri Aurobindo continues to teach us that God is in us, in everything, and that our whole being ought to demand God. The whole life and body can be satisfied of God.

Knowledge and experience, which we must attain, are primary means of arriving and possessing identity ; it is ourself that we see and experience but are incomplete unless they culminate in identity, living in all our being the supreme Vedntic knowledge: He am I. A supernal unity with the Ineffable. Actually that is the culmination of all divine knowing; that is also the source of all divine delight and divine living.

The status of knowledge then is the aim of this path and when pursued to its end is only a first approach to the ascent which we have to use until the divine doors swing open into the infinite Light.

GM for Entry Policy Final Draft

On the 26th August 2017 a general meeting was held at the Unity Pavillion to try to finalize the new draft for the Entry Policy. The main concerns seemed to be about the wording changes, which were Entry to Admission and Exit to Termination, which got resolved, and also what to do if the majority decide not to go ahead with the new policy, which also was resolved.
