The CTC Nature Connection Presents
“The Music Of Nature”
12:30 pm From CTC

This event will begin at CTC with a presentation by Donna Corso.  We will then proceed to the Trailhead restaurant for lunch. After lunch, we will meet at Lake Junaluska for a leisurely 2.3-mile walk around the lake, listening to the sounds of Nature. 
In her presentation, Donna will talk about composer Ferde Grofé who captured Nature through his many compositions, particularly through his famous Grand Canyon Suite.
Through two short (7-8 minute each) youtube videos, we will experience a musical descent into the Grand Canyon on the backs of mules, as well as a musical cloudburst. (Feel free to bring your own musical instrument if you wish…drum, flute, rattle, bird whistle, etc.)
If you are joining us at Lake Junaluska, have rain gear handy just in case. And if the weather is “extremely” inclement, we’ll just hang out at the Trailhead for extended conversation, about Nature of course!

Spiritual Message By:  Kim Webster
“Breathing In Peace of Mind”

Are you bored or does stress has you running in circles?  Is time slipping though your fingers or maybe your body is slowing down?  Peace of Mind is our most precious treasure!!!  This interactive discussion sheds light on how to rise above the chatter of the mind and go below our ever changing emotions to that place of infinite source energy and refreshing peace. 
Kim Webster likes to think of herself as a “jack of all trades and a master of fun”!  Kim has taught herself and others not to be defined by Life’s experiences… laughing at oneself, after all, is an important part of moving through life masterfully.

Rev. Lisa Rowe
“Conscious Chain Reactions- Harnessing the Energy of Faith and Unleashing the Power of Love”

Earnest Holmes tells us, “There is no reason to doubt that in the field of spiritual consciousness a chain reaction could be created which would bless the whole world.”  Lisa invites us to play with that possibility, to explore that creative energy within ourselves that can change our lives and the lives of those around us.  Let’s be part of the critical mass that impacts global consciousness.
Lisa is an independent Science of Mind minister and a licensed Practitioner at the Center for Spiritual Living—Asheville as well as a shamanic practitioner and a Master Shapeshifter.  She creates and facilitates workshops, classes and ceremonies as a way of sharing what she learns with others and as a way of shifting perceptions and perspectives beyond our own experiences and beyond the ordinary.
