Born in 1976 and with a career extending over 20 years, Jason White (Jug Colangelo) has passionately immersed himself in music and considers it to be a continual driving force, vital to his existence. This saving grace as he would put it, found him at the age of sixteen. Although late for most, he quickly developed his craft which soon after, enabled him to begin performing with several local groups.  It was during this time that he co-founded a band called, "Planet O". Immediate success followed, and the group gained many supporters all through Colorado. While touring throughout the state, and eventually the west coast, Jug gained much notoriety for his searing leads and tasteful blues driven style. With respect to his vocal method, it can be described as exhibiting a raspy, rock-like tone, while demonstrating an expressive and deft approach. 

Over the years Jug has opened for such acts which include Leon Russell, The Meditations, David Lindley, Tea Leaf Green, Sister Carol, Edgar Winter, Randy McAllister, Elephant Revival, and has performed with The Mighty Diamonds and Rankin Scroo for their nationwide tours. Although “Planet O" is still currently together, Jug has found the time to assist in cultivating several other projects. Today, he finds himself performing with multiple bands including the latest group called, “Soul Tones”. If asked what his future looks like, he’ll tell you that the skies are the limit and to stay tuned for more good music, because the best is yet to come.

Bringing together over 150 years of musical experience, and an impressive collection of Gongs from all over the world, this performance will open the dimensions of Gong play far beyond your usual 'gong bath' or similar presentation. Don't confuse this with the expected display of crashing and bashing you see today; but the formal presentation of ambient textures and nuances carefully expressed through an inter-dimensional tonal soundscape.

This unique performance is bringing together Gong artist's from both the East and West Coasts, merging with Santa Fe's more prolific live musicians. This is a layout event, so bring something comfortable to lay on, blanket or pillow as necessary, we will have mats out as well.

An Evening of Cultivating Kindness with Tara Basu

Becoming our best selves takes practice.  Our good intentions to change for the better are often forgotten in the shuffle of daily activities and lost among ingrained patterns.  If we truly want to grow, we must take time to focus on what we would like to cultivate and see grow within ourselves.  

Being kind is one of the simplest and most effective ways to dramatically transform yourself and impact those around you in a positive way.  It is a universal concept and fundamental to all spiritual work.  This interactive workshop is an opportunity to reflect on the theme of kindness, become aware of how you apply it, and to learn new tools to improve your skills.  The program will include lecture, discussion, group activities, and group meditations.

Friday July 7, 7pm at the HFL

Indigenous Soul: Blinded Movement Journey with Dominique Warfield

Indigenous Soul is a blindfolded movement journey that allows one to access a trance state of being- inviting you to explore the relationship between movement and sound without sight. As we enter the fertile darkness, like we enter the womb of our mother, the invitation is to return fully into yourself and receive the medicine from your genuine expression.

We all come from the EARTH: the elements, our bodies, our DNA is of this planet. May this be an embodied exploration which allows you to access what is native to your being and feel into the rich tapestry that our ancestors have laid before us.

Be the soft animal that trembles.

Be the stillness.

Be the song.

Be the one that beckons towards the beloved; inviting you to return home.

Spiritual Awakening & Rebirth - Lecture with Tara Basu

Friday, June 2 from 7-9 pm

As we go through life, we are constantly shedding and revising our old identities so we can embrace a newer, wiser, more complete version of ourselves.  The idea of being born again is a concept intrinsic to the human experience, and has special significance and power when we decided to embrace spirituality on a new level.  We will talk about the nature of this metamorphosis, how the transformation manifests, and how it applies to our daily lives.  This class includes a lecture and facilitated group meditations.  Time will be given for discussion as well opportunities to share personal experiences.

There will be an emphasis on Eastern thought with a focus on the universality of different paths.  Open to all.  $15 sliding fee scale

Becoming an Artisan of Inspiration Meditation with Joseph McClenton

Being an inspiration stirs mystery within us. It triggers both our love and our passion. And being inspired gives us pause to reassess our priorities and to jump-start our momentum. Inspiration can be a magic potent in the living and loving of life. During a delightful afternoon of magic, Joseph will help us uncover the steps that we can take, one by one, to become an inspiration to ourselves and then to others. The afternoon will conclude with a powerful meditation of becoming a Beacon of Light and a Beacon of Hope and then traveling into hot spots in the world to bring light and hope into the darkness. It will be powerful, poignant, touching, and magical experience.
