2017 Calendar --- PLEASE SCROLL DOWN!
The Roman God, Janus, was the reason behind the name of January.
He was depicted as looking back and also looking forward. He was associated with great archways and passages, often with immense doors or gates that led from one place to another. Well, that's where we are now, on the other side of the gate, and walking into 2017.
Let us be stunning reminders that we carry knowledge and experience, but welcome each new day with what life expects from us, not just what we expect from it. We are here to be purposeful participants in this game called life. Happy New Year!

Sat. Feb. 11 / 2 - 4:30 PM --Relearning the Democratic Process /
What it Takes to Make a Difference
In these turbulent times in America and the world, many of us have made a decision to
be more socially and politically active--letting our voices be heard.
For this reason Sacred Seasons is hosting a learning or training session on local, state
and national government--how it is structured, how it works and how we as part of this participatory democracy have a part to play in how our country is run.
Brenda Davis, from the Central Orange County League of Women Voters, will be our
speaker, and there will be handouts and resource guides available to contact local,
state and national congressional representatives.
There will be time for Q & A and sharing our knowledge and
resources in helping one another find outlets that can lead to
making a difference in our governmental process.
Before we can take wise action we need to know the basics for contact and communication.
Please RSVP / ASAP if you will be attending.
United we stand for the rights of all.
