Together in safe space, we explored touch as a sensation in
the body, its qualities, the meaning that arose from it, and how and where
touch is given and received in the body. And of course, we barely touched
the whole subject! For those who will be coming back next week, those who
haven't come to the class, or those who haven't heard of it yet, the next
class will be Tuesday April 13 7:30-9pm. Kala and I will be leading a deeper
exploration of touch, this time focusing on the meaning we associate with
touch, and start looking at the vocabulary that we use in our touch. Read on
below for all the juicy details!

# Perspective on 9-11 Exposing the Lies and Seeking the Truth
In this multimedia presentation, Ken Jenkins will guide an exploration into the mystery of what really happened on Sept 11, 2001. There will be particular emphasis on the historical perspective. Going beyond the pioneering video by Michael Ruppert, excerpts of ten videos, including The Great Deception with Barrie Zwicker and GNN’s Aftermath will be shown, along with many Powerpoint slides. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
The truth behind 9/11 offers an unprecedented opportunity: to bust the war game once and for all, to usher in a new era of lasting peace, where war is no longer an option.
Ken Jenkins has been giving presentations about 9-11 for over two years. An award winning video and media producer, he has an education in engineering and has done extensive study in psychology and metaphysics. He was a featured speaker at the recent 3 day 9-11 International Inquiry in SF, where he spoke on the psychological aspects of 9-11. He brings a multifaceted and balanced approach to this investigation.
We will open the evening with music by Michael Masely.
"No one plays the cymbalom, the large hammered dulcimer, the way Michael Masley does. His creative brilliance goes beyond his performance... Masley...invented "bowhammers"...finding rich, haunting overtones that characterize his music."

# 4/20: Who Shot JFK? Find out tonight! every 1st and 3rd Tuesday: same Location.
7 pm in SF (15 Boardman Place @ Bryant between 6th and 7th) will be the first public showing of the full version of the Zapruder film in the United States. A Japanese crew was able to track down six missing fames of the film and put the full version together with the audio recording from a Dallas policeman’s radio. The results are astounding. Not only can one hear that five shots were fired (in constrast to the official three), but experts from England and Poland were able to determine that the shots were fired by three different guns/gunmen in separate locations. At the showing will be Paul Kangas who as a young man served in the Navy and served in JFK’s militarty security escort. He can tell you firsthand that the regular military escort was pulled on that fateful day and that he and his fellow soldiers knew immediately that the official story was impossible. There is no set charge but a donation would be appreciated. Seating is limted to 50 people so come on time if you wish to join this historic event.
