The members of SEARCH of Rochester want to thank you for your support by kicking of the new program year with a free showing of the movie I AM.  Bring your friends for a unique opportunity to introduce them to SEARCH of Rochester! We are looking forward to another amazing year of programs that inform, teach, and entertain!

I AM is the story of a successful Hollywood director, Tom Shadyac (Liar Liar, Nutty Professor, Bruce Almighty), who experienced a life threatening head injury, and his ensuing journey to try and answer two very basic questions: 

What’s wrong with our world?  and  What can we do about it?

With a film crew of four, Tom visits some of today’s great minds, including authors, poets, teachers, religious leaders, and scientists (Howard Zinn, Lynn McTaggart, Desmond Tutu, Thom Harmann, Coleman Barks) searching for the fundamental endemic problem that causes all of the other problems, while simultaneously reflecting on his own life choices of excess, greed and eventual healing.

 We started by asking what’s wrong with the world, and ended up discovering what’s right with it. ~ Tom Shadyac

Astrology and the Buddha Moon


Astrology and the Buddha Moon by Barbara Everett

May’s Full Moon, called Wesak Moon, is considered the most auspicious day in the Buddhist calendar. It is the celebration of the birth, enlightenment and death of Buddha.

Spiritual energies are at peak during full moons, and in Buddhist tradition the Wesak Moon is the most potent amongst these.

The origins of this celebration are connected to agricultural notions of time based on the moon. The previous New Moon before Wesak is the Sun and Moon annual rendezvous in the earth sign of Taurus.

The image is, as the Moon gets pregnant reaching the water sign of Scorpio, so our consciousness grows expanding within us.

This is the time of the year where the soil is removed and prepared to be seeded. The concept of insemination is backed up by the mirroring of the Sun and Moon, Father and Mother, in Earth and Water, blessing man’s yearly labor.

Wesak is about man’s union with nature and with the stars. A celebration of the divinity behind all manifestation: the infinite intelligence that lives in all. This is the feast. Man acknowledging his place. Honoring all living beings. All participants in the cycle of life.

Buddha reached inside himself and lived the same process that lives in nature. He opened himself, was fecund by divinity, and was made a man-god.

In his honor, for centuries, in Tibet, Nepal, India and South Asia, it is a time for meditation, and chanting. A powerful time of prayer and devotion with a focus on healing and enlightenment for all beings. Generosity and kindness are practiced in service of all living things. As too are dancing, painting and dramatic reenactments.

Sacred Geometry

For some, Sacred Geometry is a study of ancient temples, sacred sites, and patterns found in the cosmos. For others, Sacred Geometry is a means of leaving their body to travel to other dimensions. To the students of Sacred Gaiametry, Sacred Geometry is a metaphor for this Earth walk – a means of becoming grounded in our Divine Humanness – a way to radiate our Divinity to all parts of our Earth experience.

Sacred Gaiametry combines the wisdom of the Masculine Mystery Schools of Geometry with the Feminine Mystery School of the Earth – Gaia. This path acknowledges, honors, and empowers the Divine within her explorers.
Sacred Gaiametry recognizes all of the archetypal forms and shapes as chalices containing all the information and memories of our multitude of soul incarnations. These memories are all stored in our pineal gland, the akashic record within each of us.
The teachings are of the Seventh Ray and support the Universal Laws on both the spiritual and physical planes. They embrace the concept of the Fifth Dimension Guru — the guru within or G.U.R.U. (Gee You Are You).
