The previous expos have been very successful and a lot of fun. Lake Harriet Spiritual Community believes sustainable living is an important part of living consciously and the expo is a great way to bring awareness to this.

12:15 - 1:15  Positive Activism Program: Peace is Not Passive   
Keri Mangis

What prevents those of us devoted to a spiritual life from reaching out as activists? It’s not because we don’t want to see a fairer world or a healthier planet.  It’s not because we don’t see that we are all connected. Maybe it’s because we see ourselves as peaceful people, and therefore do not wish to be associated with qualities sometimes connected with the word “activist:” aggressive, angry, inflexible. But we cannot create a healthier world by stepping back from the light. We cannot create a fairer world by silencing our voice. We cannot cultivate peace through passive actions. In this workshop, let’s discuss the positive, active energy behind cultivating and maintaining peace. We might agree by the end that being spiritual and being an activist are not that different after all.

1:30 - 2:30pm Is Your Consciousness Disorganized?    
Dr. Stussy

If you’ve damaged your brain your consciousness and awareness have been affected/altered/disorganized. Most people think our consciousness lives in our evolved cortex.  Actually, it’s arousal activation centers are in the oldest and most primitive brain structures. Whether you’ve had a concussion or an infection or emotional trauma you may have disorganized these vital brain centers.
Whether you’re meditating or doing yoga or eating raw or chanting your ability to reach the higher levels of health consciousness may be limited by this disorganization. Come and hear Dr. Stussy of MN Concussion & Chiropractic Arts speak about re-organizing and reconnecting your disconnected brain!
