It is not certain if the Menucha gathering will be happening this November. In the near future there will be a survey going out to get an idea of how many people would be interested in attending Menucha this year, and the decision will be based on member response to the survey. Could we also stage our Regional Congress on the Sunday afternoon of Menucha?
Would you be interested in a Zoom meeting to gather member input? Leave a reply above.
Explanations of the Ramadan Calendar, compiled from explanations given by Bapak,
by Mas Sudarto and by Mas Prio.
Ramadan started April 24th. Many Subud members fast during this time. Other things to remember, during the month of Ramadan: One refrains from sexual intercourse, and our fasting must also include abstention from the following:
a) We must not use our ears to listen to gossip, quarrels or bad words.
b) We must not use our mouth to say anything wrong or unkind.
c) We must not use the emotions to reach the emotions or passions of others.
d) We must not use our eyes in a way that is not good or nice.
e) We must not use the heart and mind to imagine or think about unhappy things, fantasies or unreality.
f) We must not eat or drink or smoke anything between dawn and sunset each day.

Pretesting for Regional Positions
Subud PNW’s Board Members’ terms are nearly up. If you would like to pretest to see if you have the ability and capacity to serve on the Regional Board please ask your local helpers to test with you after latihan.
Please consider an extra donation to Subud Pacific Northwest – Greater Seattle at this time. There is no Airbnb business scheduled in April and only a few bookings at the end of May. This means our usual income is WAY DOWN, so if you can help, please consider doing so. Thanks for considering! SGS Chair, Jim O’Halloran.
Springtime at Spring Street Center
Our very own Lucinda O’Halloran shared these photos of our “new” dogwood trees in bloom on the parking strip at Spring Street Center. Nice to enjoy the blossoms, even from a distance! No sign of locust roots from the previous trees, either!
Sheltering in Place
The Subud Greater Seattle Committee hopes everyone is hanging in there during this unusual time. We hope you had a lovely and meaningful Easter, even if you were unable to gather with family as you might have liked. We hope the phone in Latihans have succeeded in helping you feel continued connection with your spiritual community. The Sunday Zoom meetings at noon have provided another way to stay in touch. The meeting ID is 2064225002.
Several Subud members attended the virtual book release party Saturday night for Paul Nelson’s new book, A Time Before Slaughter/Pig War: & Other Songs of Cascadia. If you would like some sheltering in place reading, you can order it at atimebeforeslaughter.com.
Begins April 24.
