Hunter Hill Vineyard & Winery

Hunter Hill Vineyard & Winery

The 2012 Pinot that winemaker Vann Slatter produced was good, but the 2013 is even better. Not surprisingly, it has become a top seller at the winery. Made entirely from estate fruit and aged for a year on American oak, I think the 750 cases that Slatter made will not be around for very long.

Twisted Roots

Twisted Roots

Next to well-known Café Rustica and tucked just inside the LyonsHead Gallery is the lovely Twisted Roots Winery. It’s a unique place to visit, in that you can order food from Café Rustica to munch on in the winery’s courtyard, or meander around inside Lyons Head and check out all of the interesting artwork. And then there’s the wine tasting, of course. Winemaker Josh Ruiz is producing some excellent wines and he’ll be happy you’re there to try some.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
