We play at the diportiva just up from Mega, and in front of the entrance to Los Frailes.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics
1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

A Game for Everyone
The USAPA currently estimates there are now over 400,000 players actively playing pickleball.

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

Donald Trump: Make America Hate Again

By David Johanssen

At first it was funny, then it turned ugly, but now no one is laughing at the GOP slug-fest. Donald Trump is still the front-runner and he has been severely underestimated by media pundits and establishment officials. His right-wing populism and course nationalism have gained him support from white supremacists who say their membership is growing drastically. In a recent interview, Donald Trump refused to disavow David Duke of the KKK. Might he hold some sympathetic views toward even that organization?

Wednesday, May 4th at 5 pm, Shelter presents Donald Trump: Make America Hate Again, comparing Donald Trump to megalomaniacs such as Mussolini and Hitler. Is he just another in a long line of hate-mongers or something fresh and authentic? Discussion to follow, 50 pesos.

By Javier Estrada:
Remote, sleepy eyes, with a lost look on the vast horizon, wearing arrogant colors and wrapped in the music of the infinite hymn of the poor squeals of their wrecked carts, decorated by the sounds of the hoofs of his solitaries horses, they enter these lands in the fifteenth century.

Where do they come from? So strange, so proud, while these women breastfeed their young kids; the elderly more idly, wondering these new paths. Here is the price to pay to remain what they have always been, birds of passage, intrusive outsiders: the patriarch of the clan scrutinizes between the cracks of the landscape and think that heres, as any other part of the world, the tribe will not give up for anything, an old custom which they call Freedom.

In this guitar concert, Javier Estrada will describe with musical notes and poetry, the life of the Roma People. Do not miss this unique experience.

Por Javier Estrada:
Remotos con la mirada soñolienta por la nada del horizonte, vestidos con colores arrogantes y envueltos en la música del himno pobre e infinito que forman el chirrido de sus carretas y los cascos de sus caballos solitarios entran a estas tierras en el siglo XV.

¿De dónde vienen? tan extraños tan orgullosos, mientras esas muchachas les dan teta a sus crías; los ancianos más impasibles sortean estos nuevos caminos preguntándose el precio que aquí hay que pagar por seguir siendo lo que han sido siempre, aves de paso, forasteros intrusos: el patriarca del clan escruta entre las grietas del paisaje y piensa que su tribu aquí como en cualquier otro territorio del mundo no habrá de renunciar para nada a su patria p

Join us for a meditative freeform dance journey into the aspects and experience of your very unique individuality

Ven con nosotros a un baile libre para viajar adentro los aspectos y experiencias de tu único individualidad.

In the time it takes to find the words to describe something to a friend or even to oneself, the experience has long past. Even the state of being a witness to one's own mind is still a state of reflection on oneself, and to reflect is still to live less than fully present in the moment. It is only when we surrender, and give ourselves full permission to lose ourselves in the moment that we truly are in it: in it so much that we fully exist: true, innocent, and alive.

Come. Dance in sound, in movement, in silence. Let words fall away. Let judgments stand outside the door. Enter the dance, and the very current of your life,

Por el tiempo que lo toma encontrar las palabras para describir algo a un amigo o su mismo, la experiencia ya se salió. Aun el estado de ser un testigo a su mente esta todavía un estado de reflejarse, y luego no existir 100% en el momento. Es solo cuando nos entregamos y dar permiso para perdirnos en el momento que encontraremos viviendo completamente en el momento y existimos: en la verdad, la inocencia, y la vida.

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

Death is real, it comes without warning and it cannot be escaped. An ancient source of strength and guidance,The Tibetan Book of the Dead remains an essential teaching in the Buddhist cultures of the Himalayas. Narrated by Leonard Cohen, this enlightening two-part series explores the sacred text and boldly visualizes the afterlife according to its profound wisdom. Part 1: A Way of Life reveals the history of The Tibetan Book of the Dead and examines its traditional use in northern India, as well as its acceptance in Western hospices. Shot over a four-month period, the film contains footage of the rites and liturgies for a deceased Ladakhi elder and includes an interview with the Dalai Lama, who shares his views on the book's meaning and importance. Part 2: The Great Liberation follows an old lama and his novice monk as they guide a Himalayan villager into the afterlife using readings from The Tibetan Book of the Dead. The soul's 49-day journey towards rebirth is envisioned through actual photography of rarely seen Buddhist rituals, interwoven with groundbreaking animation by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Ishu Patel.

San Miguel Allende is a city that today is an important reference point for poets and musicians. The various artistic manifestations have managed to creat a plural and inclusive city, that bring us the escenary to smells, instead listen and feel all that is done in this little corner of the bajio.

In this context the concert harp and guitar of Teacher Basurto is a necessary anf unforgettable experience. We heard a tour with latin American music from Venezuela, Cuba, Paraguay Spain and Mexico. The harp is magic and the master shows the way to learned this vast music.

The second half of the concert is flamenco, poetry and feeling. Here the guitarist brilliantly plays and stimulates the heart which is well worth it.

San Miguel Allende es una ciudad que hoy por hoy es un referente importante para poetas y músicos. Las diversas manifestaciones artísticas han logrado crear una ciudad plural, incluyente, interesante que nos permite sentir, oler, escuchar lo que se produce en este ríncon del bajío. En este contexto de una ciudad que provoca, el concierto de arpa y guitarra de Sergio Basurto es una experiencia estimulante y necesaria. Asistimos a un encuentro de música latinoamericana de Venezuela, Cuba, Paraguay España y México. El arpa es magia y así Basurto con esa sensibilidad que lo caracteriza nos acerca a la vasta cultura latinoamericana marcando las diferencias regionales que integran este continente.

Así la segunda mitad del concierto es flamenco, poesía y sentimiento puro. Basurto nos induce y nos emociona, estimula nuestro corazón que bien merece la pena.

In 1494, Christopher Columbus made a second journey to the Americas—this time with more ships, more men, and a grander mission. His goal was to build the first European colony in the New World. But in just a few short years, this settlement would perish with one-fifth of its inhabitants dead, at least six ships sunk in the bay, and the legacy of Columbus permanently marred. What happened at this ill-fated settlement remains a mystery 500 years later.Now, National Geographic joins teams of archaeologists as they journey to uncover new evidence of the failure of America’s first European city, La Isabela.

Tibet, the land of snows, is cradled in the cloud of fable. It was a place unknown to the world beyond its mountain walls for nearly a millennium. Exotic tales abounded about these unearthly people on the vast plateau embraced by the mountains. But it was not a land to be entered abruptly by outsiders. Inaccessible and remote, Tibet remained a mysterious figment in western imagination. When the first expeditions of westerners entered the forbidden land in the late 19th century they brought back the first images the outside world had ever seen. They were images that provoked fantastic tales, even more it seemed westerners wanted to believe in the mythical Shangri-La, a temperate Asian land sheltered from the outside, governed by a philosophy of compassion and non-violence, free from hardship or strife.

A paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players.

The Basics
1. A fun sport that combines many elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong.
2. Played both indoors or outdoors on a badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net.
3. Played with a paddle and a plastic ball.

A Game for Everyone
The USAPA currently estimates there are now over 400,000 players actively playing pickleball.

   10:00am  meditation: w/ the SMA Meditation Community

10:00am-11:00am  
Cost: free, donation
Location: LifePath, Rinconada de la Aldea 29
Contact: jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877
Website: www.lifepathretreats.com

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com
