Walking Meditation:
In Memory and Remembrance
Hosted by Melissae & Nicole from Be Here Now

Sunday October 29th, 4:00-5:00pm
Missoula Cemetery, 2000 Cemetery Rd

Please join us for a silent, guided walking meditation and a reading of the Five Remembrances, as a time to honor any loss we hold in our hearts.

You are encouraged to bring a small memento to carry with you during the walk, such as a photo of a loved one who had passed away. All are welcome.

Hooray, it's winter! And that means it's time for our winter series Open Mic Nights to start!

Join us for our first one of the season on:
Saturday December 9th from 7:00-10:00pm

All forms of creative sharing are welcome and encouraged: poetry, story telling, music, comedy, improv games, show-n-tell, magic... the sky's the limit! Just please note that this is a family friendly event and kids are super welcome to come AND to participate.

Bringing along snacks to share is a super great idea too - just sayin' :)

Come to share or simply come to hang out and be in good company - though we do highly encourage you to share! We all have something to share, so get creative!

Bring your friends and family along! Free & open to attend.
