"My Favorite Animal"
by Tom Sime

The Hornby Hall
Thursday to Sunday,
November 18 - 21, 2010

An intelligent, insightful, saucy comedy that speaks to the old adage: Be careful what you wish for. Written by Tom Sime, an up-and-coming playwright from New York with a rare talent for dialogue and a serious twinkle in his eye, the play will be directed by Laura Consenting. Laura is a professional and passionate dramaphile who has trekked across the country from the Big Apple by train, bus, ferry, and car to be here on Hornby for the next couple of months to guide us through the adventure.

The play explores perspectives: What does it mean to be a man, or a woman, or both? Gender stereotyping, love, hunger, sex, all in the mix in a kaleidoscopic blend of wit and whimsy. Come and follow the cast of characters on their personal journey. Neither they nor you will leave unchanged.

Tickets $13 advance, $15 at the door.

Look for posters around the beginning of November.
Tickets will go on sale around the second< week of November at the usual places.

Silent Meditation Retreat

Deerheart Sanctuary
Fri Oct 1st to Mon Oct 4th

These retreats are rare opportunities to turn inward in an environment where the space is being held for deep inquiry into the absolute truth of your being. No one can really describe what experience awaits you as you turn inward and open to silence. It must be experienced, a conceptual understanding is not it. There is only one authority and that comes from within.

You will be guided to maintain absolute fidelity with your deepest experience. Simply allow what you are experiencing to be the ultimate truth in that moment without identifying with any story about those experiences.

Visit for complete retreat information.

Painting into Spirit Workshop

March 26th to 29th

This amazing 4 day workshop is only offered every two years and combines the powerful processes of Free Expression Painting and Mindfulness or Vipassana meditation.

Free Expression Painting (facilitated by Caroline James) is an incredible practice for discovering ones own unique creative voice through the use of very simple tools and mediums. Central to the process is the understanding of how we can let go of judgments that block authentic expression and therefore prevents us from being present in the creative moment. Vipassana meditation (facilitated by Beth Trotter) trains us to bring our attention back to the present moment, back to the creativity at hand.

No experience is necessary in either discipline.

Cost: $395.00 plus a small materials fee. All materials and mediums are included except for a few inexpensive brushes.

For more information please visit
or email Carolin James:
Ph: 250-335-1910

Silent Meditation Retreat

Deerheart Sanctuary
March 19th to 22nd

These retreats are rare opportunities to turn inward in an environment where the space is being held for deep inquiry into the absolute truth of your being. No one can really describe what experience awaits you as you turn inward and open to silence. It must be experienced, a conceptual understanding is not it. There is only one authority and that comes from within.

You will be guided to maintain absolute fidelity with your deepest experience. Simply allow what you are experiencing to be the ultimate truth in that moment without identifying with any story about those experiences.

Visit for complete retreat information.
