Introduction to the Council Teachings of the Native Americans
with RainbowHawk and WindEagle of the Ehama Institute, Abiquiu, NM

The Way of the Council uses the wisdom of the medicine wheel to bring eight different yet integrated perspectives to bear on any question or deliberation. This is one of the ancient ways of tribal peoplesto stay connected with the harmony of the universe.

Please join us for an entertaining and enlightening afternoon - there will be a potluck, so feel free to bring something to share.

On Saturday, March 3, Casas de Vida Nueva is holding an educational fundraiser. "The Soloist" will be shown at Guild Theatre at 1:30 pm. Following will be a discussion of mental illness and homelessness led by Dr. Tim Schuster, psychiatrist, and Karen Navarro, social worker from St. Martin's Hospitality Center.

Charlotte Back, Founder of Casas de Vida Nueva, has been a member of ACSL since 1979.

Casas de Vida Nueva's goal is to develop a residential therapeutic farm community for adults with mental health needs on 15 irrigated acres just south of Belen.

The very beginning of spring is a powerful spiritual lesson as we watch all the buried and dormant seeds, cracking open to a force and process they can't see, we too come into the presence of an awakening that is calling us to surrender to a greater yet to be that we can't yet see. And the question becomes do we wait until we can see spring to open and by doing so just survive, or do we listen to the early whispers of that which we can't yet fully see that allow us to thrive?

Join us on Sunday as we explore how to move from surviving our own breaking open to thriving in it.

With Great Love,
Rev. Kylie Renner

In the 2nd building, we will continue working on the bathrooms installing drywall, taping & texturing, and painting. We will be installing partitions & toilets soon. Several walls and doors need to be installed too.

The Social Hall after service activities will be in the main building for one more Sunday, then back to the 2nd building on March 11th, next Sunday. We need a serious 2nd Building kitchen cleaning team this week.

Work days are Friday starting at 10:00 am, Saturday starting at 1:00 pm., and Wednesday & Thursday starting at 10:00 am. Come by during those times, or call Jane Westbrook, the Center's Resource Director at 400-1545.

As we approach having a third service beginning April 1, a Hospitality Team will be forming to create a new and improved and perhaps expanded Social Hall experience after services. This is much more than just cookies & coffee. This is the main time and place for connection, conversation & community. Please contact Jane Westbrook, at 400-1545, or jane@abqcsl.org so you can be of service in creating this experience for the growing ACSL community.

The weeds are springing up & thriving in the cracks and rocks, and we need some parking lot and front and side yard maintenance and weed removal. This is something that can be done any time. Talk to Jane if this is something that you could do. Watch for an outside clean up day later in March.

Explore how to create peace from the inside out.

Peacebuilding is essentially a process of bringing submerged issues out
of the darkened waters and up to where it can be seen. Once exposed to the
light conflict can be a powerful teacher. It tells us what we don’t want to hear
but need to know.

Saturday March 3rd 1-4 PM.
Free for members of Tither's and Committed Givers Circles. General Admission $25.

Rev. Kylie Renner

The word enthusiasm is derived from the roots en — in or within — and theos — God. It means having God within or being one with God. People filled with enthusiasm carry a special kind of energy. They bring warmth and feeling to their relationships and vigor and freshness to their activities.

To practice enthusiasm, be known for your eagerness, your curiosity, your willingness to give it all you've got. Proclaim your passions. Hold nothing back. Sing your heart out.

Join us on Sunday as we explore the spiritual practice of holding nothing back, as we commit to letting whatever we experience make its way in and letting whatever is in make its way out, while we become open vessels of giving and receiving.

With Great Love,

Rev. Kylie Renner

The Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living has meant many different things for my life in the past three years. Each of these things is unique, and important, and has impacted my Spiritual Journey in ways I may never fully express. ACSL has been a place of comfort, a place to sing, a place of friendship. I have come to find community and opportunities to be of service here. Most importantly, ACSL has become a place for my education and all the challenges, triumphs, and excitement that have come with that from my first workshop and as I continue on to ministerial school. It would be so much easier to describe ACSL as a place where I go every week and how that has impacted my life. But, this community; the space, the people, and the energy are so much more than weekly services and meetings. The energy created in our space, our hearts, and minds is truly transforming everyone who is a part of this community, even if they just come one time. I truly believe our consciousness is shaping our world, an amazing world that I am grateful for everyday.

The Center has been the pillar of strength in the past year- as I encountered challenges and growing pains. It has encouraged me to find and try to live authentically. I appreciate that our spiritual practice is to honor the many paths to God and that all paths will ultimately lead to the same Infinite Spirit. Our community is remarkable; we are transforming our personal lives, helping each other and building a community/world that truly works for everyone. To belong to this community has taught me to have a personal relationship with God and to discover when we are deeply connected with Spirit how simple it is to bring peace and harmony to anything. I am learning to live purposefully and gaining spiritual maturity. I am honored to be a part of a community that is full of life, loving, supportive and diverse group of people.

Stephanie Lively
At a time in my life when I needed community & support I came back to the Center and I have to say that is exactly what I found. This community has opened it's arms and heart to me. I have seen amazing growth take place in our community and myself. Rev. Kylie always encourages me to think outside the box and well beyond where I can envision on my own. It is so exciting to me to see how spirt has expressed itself through our community and I really want to be apart of this and support it in whatever way Spirit works through me.
