OCTOBER 2 UPDATE ON THE EAGLE CREEK WILDFIRE BURNING NEAR MENUCHA:
Thankfully, Menucha Retreat And Conference Center escaped the fire. However, they lost $50,000 in revenue due to canceled groups and could not have their annual fundraising event. The best way you can support our friends who run this center is to attend our annual kedjiwaan weekend November 9 to12. Please register now to show our support for this beautiful property and the wonderful team who has warmly welcomed Subud members every year for nearly 30 years.
--Oswald Norton, Regional Helper
The Pacific Northwest Regional Helpers invite you to our annual PNW Kedjiwaan retreat at the Menucha conference center, located twenty minutes outside of Portland, Oregon.
We have designed this year’s gathering with the shape of the circle in mind: with a Friday opening circle in the morning where we can share and listen to each other’s spiritual journeys, and a Sunday closing circle for sharing our experience of the weekend. Saturday will be the “center point” of the weekend, with more time set aside for kedjiwaan activities, such as testing how each of us put the latihan into practice in our lives—or any other topics that emerge.
As with previous PNW Kedjiwaan gatherings at Menucha, most all “content” is “user-generated”—if you have a talent, a project, or a skill to share there’s a glorious gift shop and titillating talent night to contribute to—and plenty of rooms to dance and sing and slouch with your friends inside.
We hope to see you at this beloved event! If you can make it, we strongly suggest attending all three days to receive the full experience.
Additionally, the Pacific Northwest Regional Helpers are still looking for one more woman helper to join our ranks—even the willingness to test to test (not a typo) for this position is appreciated!
Your PNW Regional Helpers
