Madeline McNeill and friends return to the Buddhio!
NOV 11 7:30p doors, performance at 8:00p
About Sensata...This piece "A Sensata Liturgy on the Mind" combines ancient vocal harmonies that I fell in love with as a child, with new ideas conceived in my adult years. Sensata is a Latin word meaning "wise or gifted with sense." It is a word I have repeated quietly to myself for years to describe the spiritual component of my philosophy. Now I am beginning to use it freely. The word describes the art and culture seeds that I would like to see grow into a body-centered spirituality. This sensata liturgy is an ecstatic and contemplative composition, my first choral expression of ideas that blew my mind, and truth be told, put me on a manic roller coaster.
Friday & Saturday evening
AUG 25 & 26 7:30p
Tony Kushner's A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of friends gathered in the Berlin apartment of Agnes Eggling as they navigate the Weimar Republic's dissolution and the Nazi party's meteoric rise from 1932-33. The Berlin timescape is periodically interrupted by Zillah, a woman living in Reagan-era New York.
Under the direction of Troy Nickerson, this staged reading will feature the talents of Marianne McLaughlin, Jamie Flanery, Diana Trotter, Ricardo Ibarra-Rivera, Chris Jensen, Jennie Oliver, Brooklyn Robinson, Eli Drushella, Toni Cummins, Wes Dietrick, and Andrea Tate.

Looking back with gratitude for our performance artists!
The Normal Heart: A Staged Reading
DEC 1 & 2 7:30p
In 1985, playwright and activist Larry Kramer wrote THE NORMAL HEART, an incendiary drama about the dark early days of the AIDS epidemic in New York City. Please join us for a staged reading of Kramer's play under the direction of Diana Trotter as we commemorate World AIDS Day on December 1-2. A portion of the evening's proceeds will support Spokane AIDS Network.
This is the second in a new series of staged readings produced by the Actors Buddhio at South Perry Yoga. (The series began in August 2017 with a performance of Tony Kushner's A BRIGHT ROOM CALLED DAY.)
We hope you can join us!
A Celebration of Rumi
SAT DEC 16 7:00p donations in gratitude
Returning to the BUDDHIO once again, an evening celebration of dancing , whirling or simply listening and experiencing this beautiful gathering.
In living with our experiences of polarized differences and extremes, Rumi’s poetry speaks of the universal heart of love, offering us a message of the wisdom of the heart that transcends the boundaries of religious separation and fundamentalism. He celebrates the dignity of the human spirit without regard to cultural differences or beliefs. Rumi inspires us today to stand and speak for tolerance, respect, and unity. It helps to have times of being immersed within his inspiration.
For several years, the Spokane Dances of Universal Peace group has hosted an annual celebration of Mevlana Jalalu'd-Din Rumi, the 13th century Persian mystic and poet who has inspired people of all faiths and cultures throughout the world. This night honors Rumi's Wedding Night, his return to the Beloved, and offers Poetry, Music, Dance, Singing and Whirling. All are welcome on this special night.
People are invited to participate in the dances with seating available for those who wish to sit and listen. Parking is available on the west side of the street in the Grant School parking lot, on the street, or on the north side of 9th Ave in the HICO parking lot. There is a suggested donation of $10.
Brought to you by the Baraka community of the Dances of Universal Peace.
Suggested Donation: $10

PERRY STREET BREWING
the SHOP showing MOANA ~ Outdoor Summer Theater 9:30p
We are celebrating a 6 year wrap of community yoga dollars improving a special part of the South Perry district's architectural history. Built in 1908, as Grant Elementary's auditorium, the Buddhio has undergone a transformation including new windows, walls, ceilings, rewiring, floors, heating, lofting, bathrooms, and a welcoming northwest inspired cedar entry. This evening's proceeds will support final stage improvements including lighting and sound, as we prepare for our first reader's theater next month, A Bright Room Called Day, showcasing local actors and directed by Troy Nickerson.
"For five years, Folkinception has been one of Spokane’s most impressive musical voices. The band’s Kickstarter-funded 2014 album Tower Mountain skillfully walks a tricky line between well-crafted and well-performed Americana music and the kind of ragged “everybody now!” soulful folk-rock that people dig these days. Tight tunes that hang together while also oozing authenticity are harder to make than it sounds." - The Pacific NW Inlander
Folkinception's musical roots rise from the great American folk tradition and extend far into the realm of Americana and Rock n Roll. The band has been praised for their ability to “build a song from a whisper to a roar”. The music is firmly rooted in a song writing process that pays homage to life's triumphs, while confronting adversity with a defiant sense of optimism. Their sound, developed over the past six years, conveys a musical identity unique to their Northwest origins. Folkinception is putting their stamp an a new genre of music coming out of the Pacific Northwest today... Upper Left Americana.
Cello, violin, harmonica and vocal harmonies layer together to provide a uniquely original timbre; while electric guitar and Hammond organ vary between nuanced textures and soaring climactic heights. Drums, bass, acoustic guitar and piano round out the instrumentation and act as the driving, rhythmic force behind the songs. Since the band’s inception in 2011 Folkinception has evolved into a regional fan favorite; supporting many of the great up and coming, independent bands touring the Northwest today. Folkinception has shared the stage with Fruition, Hot Buttered Rum, The Lil' Smokies, Dead Winter Carpenters, Polecat, Hillstomp, Cornmeal and many more. The band is currently working with Producer Chris White of Comrade Studios (LA/Seattle/Spokane) on their second, full length album, to be released mid-2017.
This born-and-raised Spokane native has played the guitar since the age of 12. Daniel Hall has always felt called to perform for the masses, whether as a creatively-active member of a band or as a sweet-yet-soulful singer-songwriter solo act.
All proceeds from this event will benefit the Society for Humanitarian Archaeological Research and Exploration (S.H.A.R.E.), a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that uses archaeology as a tool to promote peace and dialogue in Israel/Palestine. S.H.A.R.E. is currently fundraising for a two-week conservation and dialogue project in July 2017 for Arab and Jewish youth in the seaside town of Jisr az-Zarqa. This project builds upon five years of successful S.H.A.R.E. programming and will provide an opportunity for these young people to engage with the past, the present, and one another on their own terms.
