                                                                   Saturday, October 26, 2019                                                                                                                             Stop in any time between 10 am and noon                                                         Blessings will begin on each quarter hour 

      At our Blessing of the Dogs, we ask that each pup please be leashed and brought to the east yard near the                            labyrinth.  After a very brief explanation of the Blessing of Dogs, and a prayer written by Albert Schweitzer, each dog will receive a personal anointing on the head.  

Water and light snacks will be available for our all loyal friends, canine and human. 

Please know that Calm in the Chaos assumes no responsibility for dogs' behavior at the Blessing.  Human participants are responsible for their canine buddies. 

This program is *dana.  Dana is a Sanskrit word meaning 'generosity.'  Donations are always welcome for our programs here, but not expected.  Great spiritual leaders such as Jesus, the Dalai Lama, and Buddha did not ask for money for their spiritual teachings.  Calm in the Chaos is built on that model.
