Old Colorado City Farmers Market @ Bancroft Park (east side)
Oct 21 @ 7:00 am – 1:30 pm

This is one of the oldest markets in Colorado Springs.  There is a wide range of products from organic to organic-lite to produce from out of state.

Baked goods are wonderful.  Most of the vendors have been at this market for many years.

Chapel Hills Farmers Market @ Chapel Hills Mall
Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

For those local food advocates who have been around Colorado Springs for a while, you recognize the Miller Farms.  At their Saturday market, you can fill up one of their bags as full as possible, and it is possible.

This market is great if you put up (can or dehydrate) produce.

The market is located in the southwest corner of the Chapel Hills Mall parking lot, south of Sears.

Meteor Showers: Orionids Meteor Shower @ Nights Sky
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm – Oct 22 @ 6:15 am

The Meteor Shower called the Orionids originated from the dust particles left behind by Halley’s Comet.  It appears annually in the night’s sky from October 2 – November 7.  The best time to watch it will be early on the night of October 21 into the morning of the 22nd. According to the astronomers, we may be able to see up  20 meteors per hour.  Look toward the constellation Orion (Toward Betelgeuse) to view, and meteors can appear anywhere in the sky.

New moon is on the 19th which means there won’t be a lot of light in the night’s sky.  Check with some of the astronomy sites for the best time to view.

I like using  skyandtelescope.com/meteor-showers-in-2017  or seasky.org/astronomy-calendar-2017  for more information

 

 

Crystal Bowl Meditation with Jim Haggins
Oct 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

While listening to the beautiful flute music, Jim will guide us into a deep relaxed state. Then we will all go on a guided visualization (or journey) into an alternative reality that is outside of time and space. Much like our Intermediate Shamanic Journeys, we will have a clear intention of whatever the particular theme is that evening. The theme is different each month as Jim’s guides give him new topics to meditate on.

John Thunderheart will join Jim with his Native American Flutes and his magical didgeridoo. While you listen to the beautiful flute music, Jim will guide you into a deep relaxed state. Then he will lead you on a guided visualization (or journey) into an alternative reality that is outside of time and space.   Much like our Intermediate Shamanic Journeys, we will have a clear intention of whatever the particular theme is that evening.

Please know that if you don’t have the $15, you are still welcome to come & donate what you can, even if it’s a hug.
