It stretches nearly 1,000 feet under giant tarps and beneath them just about anything is for sale: seasonal and imported produce, antiques, blown glass, hand-carved furniture, pirated DVDs, computers, tablets, boom-boxes, hand made huraches, Barbie dolls, goldfish, pet birds, tools, bicycles, buttons, used and new clothes, fresh fish, local honey and cheeses.

Vendors are not all from San Miguel, but work a circuit of similar weekly outdoor markets in Queretaro and Guanajuato. There are scores of food stalls here (try “Huaraches Féliz,” a kind of taco made on sopes the size of a shoe sole).

Come before 10 a.m. for more leisurely shopping.

Miguel Angel Omaña, is a guitar player, studied at the National Conservatory of Music of Mexico. He won many beginner, intermediate and advanced level internal guitar contests, from the third place, up to the first one in various national festivals.
The capacity of the artist to transmit through music any kind of feeling which comprises from compassion, excitement, happiness, love, heartbreak, anger, madness up to frustration, are mental or emotional states of well and/or bad being that we can understand as a "feeling". On the other hand, a physical expertise to execute a clean and fast performance when playing a musical instrument, is what we can understand as a "virtuosity", in order to convey the technic to the highest level as possible in accordance to the interpreter capacity
Miguel , has developed unique skills according to his personal talents, and therefore, he is very glad to offer an special recital.

All Welcome, No Experience or Registration Required

Danza del Alma is an unguided, free expression form of dance where the music, and hence the body, follows an arch of rhythm from slow and fluid for warm up, to fast and uninhibited in the middle, to calm and meditative for warm down. Danza del Alma is based on Gabriel Roth’s “5 Rhythms”: This dance is “a soul journey… by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.” – Gabriel Roth

Class etiquette:

o No outside shoes permitted. Special shoes for dancing inside only may be used.

o No perfume or other scents permitted. Some dancers are allergic.

o No talking permitted on the dance floor during class.

o Wear comfortable clothing. Shirts are required.

o Bring your own towel and drinking water.

o Doors to the dance salon are kept closed for privacy during class.

o No photos without consent of dancers.

Danza del Alma was founded in San Miguel de Allende in 1996. Our mission is to provide a safe and sacred space for all people wishing to explore their spirituality through music and movement.

04:00pm-  
Cost: 50
Location: St Paul's Church, Cardo 6
Contact:
Website:

Mary Jane Miller is organizing an 8 week directed group for prayer and and contemplation at St Paul's Anglican Church . The focus will be on Advent first and conclude with the Christmas season. We will ask what it means to come into the world, and the spiritual life which is activated as a result. Centering prayer, contemplative prayer and the prayer of quiet are all going to be explored in an effort to open ourselves to listening to God and remembering whose we are.
Beginning December1st and January 19th at St Paul's Church
The format will be simple, 20 minutes of quiet, 20 minutes of conversation, discussion observation, etc and finalize the time with another 20 minutes of quiet. 4 weeks in Advent and 4 weeks following Christmas, 50 pesos donation per session and there is no requirement you come to them all.
Every Thursdays 4 PM
IDEAS to be EXPLORED
Advent tells us Christ is near and
Christmas tells us Christ is here.

Christmas represents God's brilliant idea to become human and walk among us! Why do such a thing? Because we need an image of love for it to grow within us, to show us the way and to have a reference point for what is true, good and lasting love.
Come and prepare a place within yourself. Epiphany is the Christian celebration of what other religions call enlightenment. Enlightenment is the inward realization and consciousness of being identified with who we really are. We are individual expressions or manifestations of God, a wave of energy, light and purpose which flows through us.
"All great spirituality teaches about letting go of what you don't need and who you are not. Then, when you can get little enough and naked enough and poor enough, you'll find that the little place where you really are is ironically more than enough and is all that you need. At that place, you will have nothing to prove to anybody and nothing to protect.
All are welcome to share tier insights and experiences. Peace

In dance, we have the opportunity to experiment with sides of our personality that do not have much opportunity to express themselves, without self-judgment or the judgments of others. Danzlibre is an opportunity to move as you want, feel who you are, in a sacred and protective environment. It is a powerful and simple way to discover who you are, inside and expand as you show yourself outside.

En la danza libre, tenemos la oportunidad experimentar con lados de nuestra personalidad que no tienen mucha oportunidad expresarse, sin auto juicio o los juicios de los demás. Danzlibre es un oportunidad a mover como quiera, sentir quien eres, en un ambiente sagrada y protector. Es una manera poderosa y sencilla discubrir quien eres, adentro y expander como te muestras afuera.

What is Danzlibre/Que es Danzlibre?

Danzlibre is a voyage through music and your own spontaneous, authentic free-form movement and dance. Danzlibre is based on the transformational dance practices of Samantha Sweetwater’s Dancing Freedom. There is no set way for anyone to dance, and you can move as you please and the beat moves you. The practice is one of feeling yourself, finding yourself, and expressing yourself with movement (or stillness). There is a basic intention each time, to help us focus in common on a certain aspect of life, by way of a word or phrase to hold lightly in your head to get started and then to let go of it, to just be yourself, possibly as never before. If you have never danced in your life, and want to feel the freedom and joy of the union of body and mind in authentic expression to music, this is a perfect class for you. There is no way you can do it wrong!

Danzlibre esta formado y fundado en las practicas transformacionales de Dancing Freedom y otras practicas de bailes libres. No hay manera fijado para cualquiera persona bailar. Puedes mover como gustes y como el ritmo te mueva. La practica es uno de sentirte, encontrarte, y expresarte en movimiento o quietud. Hay una intención, cada vez, para enfocarnos en un aspecto de la vida, mediante una palabra o frase. Lo mantengas ligeramente en tu mente para comenzar, y después, déjalo salir, para que sea tu proprio ser: posiblemente como nunca antes. Si no has bailado nunca en tu vida pero mientras quieres experimentar la liberación y alegría de enlace cuerpo y mente en la expresión autentica conjunto con la música, esta clase es para ti! No hay ni una manera hacerlo mal!

Vida Obra de General Ignacio Allende – David Siqueiros’ famous unfinished mural and House of Conspiracies – where the war of independence was planned.

Tours take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Groups meet in the Jardin across from the Parrroquia at 9:45 AM and leave at 10:00 AM. Cost: 300 pesos.

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.

Danza del Alma is an unguided, free expression form of dance where the music, and hence the body, follows an arch of rhythm from slow and fluid for warm up, to fast and uninhibited in the middle, to calm and meditative for warm down. Danza del Alma is based on Gabriel Roth’s “5 Rhythms”: This dance is “a soul journey… by moving the body, releasing the heart, and freeing the mind, one can connect to the essence of the soul, the source of inspiration in which an individual has unlimited possibility and potential.” – Gabriel Roth

Class etiquette:

o No outside shoes permitted. Special shoes for dancing inside only may be used.

o No perfume or other scents permitted. Some dancers are allergic.

o No talking permitted on the dance floor during class.

o Wear comfortable clothing. Shirts are required.

o Bring your own towel and drinking water.

o Doors to the dance salon are kept closed for privacy during class.

o No photos without consent of dancers.

Danza del Alma was founded in San Miguel de Allende in 1996. Our mission is to provide a safe and sacred space for all people wishing to explore their spirituality through music and movement.

Billy White:
With over 30 years as a professional musician, known as a guitarist/percussionist and world music performer, and 20 yrs. studying and practicing meditation, yoga, and sound healing, Billy is now working on a series of recordings that utilize various instruments, voice and sound design to increase relaxation and expand awareness and health. Most recently, he has been exploring the realm of overtone singing, producing 2 or more notes from a single voice, expanding the harmonic spectrum and resonance in the human body, similar to Tuvan throat singers and Tibetan monks.
