is not just a then, recalled in a now, the past is never just the past, memory is a pulse passing through all created life, a waveform: a then continually becoming other thens, all the while creating a continual but almost untouchable now. But the guru’s urge to live only in the now misunderstands the multi layered inheritance of existence, where all epochs live and breathe in parallels… memory passes through an individual human life like a building musical waveform, constantly maturing, … often volatile, sometimes overpowering. Every human life holds the power of this immense inherited pulse: holds and then supercharges it, according to the way we inhabit our identities in the untouchable now. Memory is an invitation to the source of life, to a fuller participation in the now, to a future about to happen, but ultimately to a frontier identity that holds them all. Memory makes the now fully inhabitable.
Because her latest book, A Thousand Mornings, is relatively short, we will complete a circle reading of the entire text; each of us taking sequential turns reading the 36 poems in this book. We will then ruminate on the poems which call to our hearts & minds. As always, you are invited to bring other works by Mary which have transformed you, which we will share as time allows. Please bring a copy of A Thousand Mornings if you can; we will share books if needed. Note: This is not a poetry writing workshop.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE !!!
Please share this announcement with friends, if you please.....

Two Cosmic Microwave Background anomalies hinted at by the Planck observatory's predecessor, NASA's WMAP, are confirmed in new high-precision data revealed on March 21, 2013. In this image, the two anomalous regions have been enhanced with red and blue shading to make them more clearly visible.

Editor's Note: In this weekly series, SPACE.com explores how technology drives space exploration and discovery.
While we may never know all the details of our universe's explosive birth, scientists have been able to piece together quite a bit by studying the ancient light that saturates the cosmos.
The universe burst into existence 13.8 billion years ago in a "Big Bang" that blew space up like a giant balloon. For nearly 400,000 years after that, the universe remained a seething-hot, opaque fog of plasma and energy.

higher dimensions in our lives. We will utilize the Morgan Freeman narrated series, "Through the Wormhole" as background for discussion.
Through the Wormhole explores the deepest mysteries of existence – What are we made of? What was there before the beginning? Are we really alone? Is there a creator? These questions have been pondered by the most exquisite minds of the human race.
Through the Wormhole brings together the brightest minds and best ideas from the very edges of science – Astrophysics, Astrobiology, Quantum Mechanics, String Theory, and more – to reveal the extraordinary truth of our Universe. Facilitator: Charlie Coon
Imagine that you're a science-fiction writer on a tight schedule. You'd like to play in the vast expanses of the universe, but you have too much scientific integrity to conjure up a warp drive or a DeLorean out of thin air. You're also concerned that your audience would get bored in the thousands of years that it would take for a spaceship to realistically travel the distances between stars. What you really need is a wormhole — a shortcut through time and space. Best of all, unlike most science-fiction tropes, wormholes might very well be real.
Seventy-five years ago today, Albert Einstein and his collaborator, Nathan Rosen, submitted a paper to the Physical Review with the goal of unifying gravity and electromagnetism. Although they failed to discover a theory of everything, they did something arguably more much important: By creating the first theoretical model of a wormhole, Einstein and Rosen allowed science-fiction writers — including Arthur C. Clarke, Madeleine L'Engle and the writers of "Babylon 5" and "Doctor Who" — to explore vast stretches of space and time in the blink of an eye.
Stretch…with discoveries in Consciousness
(July 15th, 2013)
The name wormhole was coined by American theoretical physicist John A.
Wheeler in 1957, based on an analogy of how a worm could chew a hole from one
end of an apple through the center to the other end, thus creating a
"shortcut" through the intervening space.
The most common concept of a wormhole is an Einstein-Rosen bridge,
first formalized by Albert Einstein and his colleague Nathan Rosen in 1935. In
1962, John A. Wheeler and Robert W. Fuller were able to prove that such a
wormhole would collapse instantly upon formation, so not even light would make
it through. (A similar proposal was later resurrected by Robert Hjellming in
1971, when he presented a model in which a black hole would draw matter in
while being connected to a white hole in a distant location, which expels this
In a 1988 paper, physicists Kip Thorne and Mike Morris proposed since
that such a wormhole could be made stable by containing some form of negative
matter or energy (sometimes called exotic matter). Other types of traversible
wormholes have also been proposed as valid solutions to the general relativity
