Focus on Freedom

A different approach to sharing the energies of Passover

11 AM, April 20, Unity in Lynnwood

16727 Alderwood Mall Parkway

This year, rather than a formal community meal, we will be diving deep into the spiritual energies that the ritual foods symbolize.

Each Passover, we are invited to inhabit deeper dimensions of our own freedom. Explore how the Seder, through ritual and text, reflects the way of enslavement and the way of liberation. Join Rabbi Ted and musicians Stephen Merritt and Steve Mason on the first day of Passover and bring deeper meaning into your week.

Spiritual Saturdays live stream on Ted Falcon's Facebook page and on YouTube. In 2019, our intentional spiritual community will gather for Spiritual Saturday on: May 11, June 8, July 13, August 10, Sept. 14, Oct. 12, Nov. 9, Dec. 14.

Release the ashes from our hearts

In Jewish mystical tradition, the heart is our inner altar, but it is an altar that is all too often smothered beneath yesterday's ashes. Sometimes the ashes of a lifetime threaten to extinguish the flame within us that seeks fresh expression. Like ashes from the sacrificial fire, that accumulation impacts our capacity to be supportive of our own health and the well-being of others.
