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

When nine-year-old Rob Cole felt the life force slipping from his mother's hand he could not foresee that this terrifying awareness of impending death was a gift that would lead him from the familiar life of 11th-century London to small villages throughout England and finally to the medical school at Ispahan. Though apprenticed to an itinerant barber surgeon, it is the dazzling surgery of a Jewish physician trained by the legendary Persian physician Avicenna that inspires him to accept his gift and to commit his life to healing by studying at Avicenna's school. Despite the ban on Christian students, Rob goes there, disguising himself as a Jew to gain admission. Gordon has written an adventurous and inspiring tale of a quest for medical knowledge pursued in a violent world full of superstition and prejudice.

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.

JOHN PERKINS: SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

International bestselling author and global change agent John Perkins is coming to San Miguel de Allende. Perkins will deliver a keynote address at the San Miguel Writers’ Conference on Friday February 12, 11AM. The event coincides with the release of his latest book, The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.

The Center for Global Justice has arranged a more intimate conversation with Perkins on Tuesday, February 9 at Teatro Santa Ana, and you’re invited. Perkin’s 2004 best seller Confessions of an Economic Hit Man opened many eyes to how U.S. economic development programs in the global South left many poor countries beholden to the U.S. politically as well as economically. His new book, updated and expanded, sheds additional light on the role of the U.S. and global corporations and how they profit from this neocolonization.

For the February 9 event, “Conversation with John Perkins: Social and Environmental Justice,” a panel of local readers will engage him in conversation on the stage of Teatro Santa Ana. How and why does corporate capitalism wrest control of others’ lands? How did Perkins personally make the break from this predatory role to write his blockbuster Confessions? What is the New Consciousness that he sees is needed to transform our present Death Economy to a Peace Economy? And what institutional changes are needed to make it possible? What is less well known about Perkins is that he is not only an economist, he is also a shaman who has worked with indigenous communities in South America, and is an advisor to the non-profit indigenous rights group Pachamama Alliance.

This “Conversation with John Perkins” is joi

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

Talk: “NATO: The Bananazation of Europe” by Dr. Joan Roelofs

NATO uber alles?

NATO has been the U.S.s premier military alliance since the 1940s. It was to defend Europe against a supposed threat from the Soviet Union. But now, a quarter century after the demise of the U.S.S.R., NATO continues and has expanded its operations far beyond the north Atlantic region from which it drew its name. Meanwhile, within Europe itself NATO has contributed to what Dr. Joan Roelofs calls the “bananazation of Europe.”

A professor of Political Science, Dr. Roelofs will examine NATO as a political institution and some of the reasons why Western European social democracies were willing to join and to remain in this alliance – an alliance that has kept them under U.S. tutelage. Are these supposedly social democratic countries really democracies, or are they banana republics? Is NATO trying to become a world government? These are among the questions, rarely addressed by scholars and journalists, that Dr. Roelofs will address.

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

THE END OF POVERTY?

Why are the people living in some of the richest countries in terms of resources always the poorest people in the world? Why are there poor countries and rich countries at all? How did this come about and can it be overcome? The documentary film “The End of Poverty?” presents some disturbing answers.

A lot of the answer is found in the history of European colonialism and slavery. For example, Britain was an obscure island off the western coast of Eurasia when its traders arrived in India, then one of the wealthiest countries in the world. When Britain left India several centuries later, she was wealthy and India was impoverished.

Director Philippe Diaz has skillfully interwoven such information, connecting the extreme, irreparable poverty of the so-called Third World with the extreme, burgeoning wealth of the United States and Western Europe, the wars and assassinations that secure that wealth, and the destruction of the environment that accompanies it. It is a disparity still being reinforced in post-colonial and neo-colonial times through the IMF, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization.

“The End of Poverty?” is a sweeping education about the world we live in today.

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.

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

The multiple levels and depths of meaning within our dreams provide us with the innate wisdom to achieve the life we desire and deserve.

By Juan’s Café recommended the cherry blossoms movie

A German movie set largely in Japan, "Cherry Blossoms" is a beautiful and heartbreaking film about living for the moment and of not putting off till tomorrow what you can do today. It's also marvelously perceptive about the dynamics of parent/child relationships, especially when, as is true in this case, the parents are viewed by their self-absorbed offspring more as burdens to be endured than blessings to be cherished.
