We have two events scheduled for this weekend and we are looking forward to both of them! The first is a Raw Food Potluck Meetup. I haven't decided what I'm creating, yet. So far I'm thinking I'll make either an apple pie or some beet noodles with alfredo sauce, but I know how things usually go when it's time for me to prepare something special. I usually feel like I don't want to make what I had planned, and I search around in the fridge to see what pops out at me. I almost always go by what I'm inspired to create at that moment. So, who knows what I'll end up making. I'll try to take pictures of my creation as well as pictures of the other raw food dishes that others bring.

This will be our first raw food potluck. When I first went raw it was something I was doing special for myself, by myself, so I didn't join any of the raw food meetups and didn't want to make it a group activity with my friends.After two years of raw (a little over one at 100%), I've done (and continue to do) what I needed for myself.Now, I'm ready to share my experiences with everyone and to be an active member of the raw food community.So, I'm looking forward to the raw food potluck tomorrow!? You are welcome to join us at the potluck if you are in the area!

Sunday we have a special Kirtan Satsang planned. A Kirtan is the singing of the Divine's name and produces a feeling of pure love and bliss. It is part of Bhakti Yoga.The lovely and talented Devaki, a student of Leela Mata's, will drive to Pittsburgh from the Peaceful Valley Ashram to share her gift with all of us, leading us in singing as she plays the harmonium. Leela Mata is currently in Germany, so we'll miss her during this event.I've never experienced a Kirtan before, so I'm looking forward to it. If you are in the area and would like to join us, you are very welcome. Click here for more information.

What are your plans for some fun in the near future? We'd love to hear from you!
