Date/Time Event
9:15 am - 11:15 am
Awakening Awareness: Mysticism, NonDuality, and Unitive Consciousness
Sanctuary, Tacoma WA

Come together with curious intellects and attentive hearts to connect, meditate, explore, and discuss the journey of awakening, followed by a time for tea and snacks.

NonDual, Mystical, and Unitive Conscious experiences are all rooted in direct, personal, embodied knowing beyond words, beliefs, doctrines, and rigid traditions whether spontaneous or invoked. In this safe, co-created inter-spiritual group we will explore, experience direct practice, and share our “seeing,knowing and being” of essential essence common to all humanity that transcends divisive concepts and dualisms.

All members are welcome and encouraged to provide ideas and suggestions to enhance each and every participant’s group experience and well-being.

Indivisible Tacoma - Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas
Sanctuary, Tacoma WA

Indivisible Tacoma and Northwest Detention Center Resistance—12 Days of Christmas kicks off on December 13

Separated from family and working for only a dollar a day, it won’t be much of a Christmas for the 1,400+ undocumented immigrants detained at Tacoma’s NWDC. Despite its location in the Tide Flats, most Tacoma residents are unaware of

this private prison, as well as the inhumane conditions, overcrowding, and lack of adequate care experienced by

detainees. That’s why this holiday season Indivisible Tacoma is teaming up with NWDC-R for the 12 Days of Christmas to let detainees know they haven’t been forgotten. Reinforce the efforts of NWDC Resistance to support detainees and raise awareness of the human rights crisis in our backyard. 12 Days will culminate in a Christmas Eve candlelight vigil and carols outside the prison. For more information on all 12 Days and to RSVP, visit


Day 1 – December 13th – NWDCR film and speakers at Tahoma UU.

Day 2 – December 14th. Make Some Noise! Music & Drumming at the NWDC.
