LGBTQ Subud Meeting in Puebla

There were at least two Subud Greater Seattle attendees at a very interesting discussion about how the Gay & Lesbian community is treated in Subud and gender roles in general in Puebla, at the recent World Congress. This is a video (linked below) that all Subud members should watch.

The U.S. National Dewan met in November at the Subud House in Seattle and there is a report in the latest Subud USA E-Blast:

SUBUD USA NATIONAL DEWAN MEETING IN SEATTLE
The Subud USA national committee and helpers met together in Seattle at the Spring Street Center over the weekend of November 21-23. One purpose of the meeting was to strengthen working relationships which all felt were good to begin with. Testing and sharing, having meals together, all helped to strengthen the bond. Another purpose was to ensure that the efforts of each side of the dewan were aligned and integrated. Several issues and topics require both helper and committee input. One surprising outcome of the testing on priorities was that, while it is very important for the national helpers to travel, this was also important for the national committee in order to stay close to the membership and provide support to both kejiwaan and organizational sides of the organization.

The Birds!

The Birds!

Announcing the Seventh-Annual Subud Bellingham/Skagit Bird Tour
Saturday, February 14, 2015
Bring your honey or treat yourself!
Gift Certificates Available
Cost: $45 per person
(accommodations available for out of towners)

Join us as we witness the magic of the Skagit River Delta, a winter birding paradise with an international reputation. You’ll see thousands of snow geese, hundreds of trumpeter swans, waterfowl and shorebirds. Raptors winter here in large numbers, particularly bald eagles, red-tailed hawks and a few merlin and peregrine falcons. Ravens and herons are numerous, plus other songbirds and maybe a surprise or two.

Along the way we will sample some delicious eats from artisan bakeries. At the end of the 5-hour tour, we’ll arrive back at the Subud house for a hearty and delicious home-cooked Valentine’s Day dinner fit for kings and queens (and yes, there will be chocolate!)

Susila Dharma Appeal

Susila Dharma AppealDear Subud Members,

While sitting at an abundant table during Thanksgiving, I thought about those around the world that had no such full plate…only the grim despair of hunger and poverty.

With a year-end gift to Susila Dharma USA, you can help bring hope to the hundreds of people around the world who benefit from SDUSA’s charitable projects, including:

The Q Fund, which educates children in Africa, many of them orphans of the AIDS epidemic;

PUEBLO,  which employs at-risk youth in Oakland, California in urban community agriculture;

YUM,  which created an organic strawberry farm to support community projects in Indonesia.

Won’t you help us continue this important work by making a special year-end donation of $50, $100 — or whatever you can afford — to help us continue to our work?  We simply can’t do it without you.  Your support will make a real, lasting impact in the lives of those who are still in need.

To make your donation now, go to www.SusilaDharmaUSA.org/donate2014

Or mail your check to: SDUSA,50616 Hwy 245, Badger, CA 93603

 The lives of hundreds of needy people are at stake.

Thank you in advance for your generous year-end gift to Susila Dharma USA.

With gratitude, Evan Padilla
Chair, Susila Dharma USA
