James Earl Hardy’s Review

nhojj album5 artwork1 James Earl Hardys Review album reviews

“OUTMusic Award winner wraps his fluid, achingly soulful tenor (and a few of those trademark falsetto runs) around a dozen compositions, the highlights being a reggae-flavored “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved by You)“; an acoustic, crackling “Our Love Is Here To Stay“; a smoldering version of India Arie’s “He Heals Me“; and traditional yet exquisite interpretations of “Twelfth of Never,” “Over The Rainbow,” and “Someone To Watch Over Me.” He even gives Luther (“So Amazing“) and Mrs. Carter (“Love on Top“) props. A welcome addition to the ever-expanding same gender loving contemporary musical canon. Hat tip and bow…”James Earl Hardy

Violence, Healing & Forgiveness

peoplesmonastery3 Violence, Healing & Forgiveness shows

March 15th, 2014 ~ 2:30 to 5:00 PM
Circle Session:
“Violence, Healing & Forgiveness”

This is a special gathering with the extraordinary organization CONNECT, whose mission is to prevent interpersonal violence and promote gender justice. This gathering will focus on issues such as domestic violence, spiritual abuse and resources for help. What is violence and abuse? How do we heal from it? Can we forgive those that commit such acts?

Violence and abuse is not always physical. It can manifest emotionally, mentally, sexually, financially, spiritually and many other complex ways. It effects everyone – youth, elders and everyone in between.

Join us as we explore these issues through meditation, discussion, music and ritual. We will be joined by Co-Executive Directors, Sally MacNichol & Quentin “Q” Walcott. These are two of the most passionate, knowledgeable and amazing people committed to keeping our families safe and our communities peaceful.

So come and hang out with us on a Saturday afternoon whether it’s your first time or you’re a regular.

The Peoples Monastery provides a safe space where all are welcome. This is a place for urban and nature dwellers alike. It truly is a circle.
