# Special benefit screening for the SF Bay Area Independent Media Center *ABOUT BAGHDAD* Sun Nov 21 7:30 p  $5
 @ Station 40 3030b 16th St (& Mission), directly across from BART  
 In July 2003 Sinan Antoon, an exiled Iraqi writer and poet, returned to
Baghdad to see what has become of his city after wars, sanctions,  
decades of oppression and violence, and now occupation. Antoon takes 
journey exploring what Iraqis think and feel about the post-war situation
and the complex relationship between the US and Iraq.
 About Baghdad is a journey into the hearts and minds of the hundreds of
Iraqis we encountered in Baghdad. In the simmering heat of Baghdad’s
summer, Iraqis, of various ethnic and political backgrounds and
orientations, speak of past horrors and present fears.
 Reflections on the traumatic legacy of dictatorship, sanctions and war,  
also reflect resilience and humanity of a people who were, for decades,
dehumanized and disappeared behind Saddam’s image. From poets to
politicians, cabbies to communists, a retired senior citizen to an  
American soldier at Bremmer’s HQ, "About Baghdad" navigates the dire,  
and oft misunderstood and misrepresented, straits separating, yet  
involving, both Iraqis and Americans.

 Celebrating the Art of Living Sustainable

# PUJA RITUAL reverent and beautiful devotional ritual otherwise 
'sculptured party.' In some traditions, homage to a specific diety is  
emphasized. At this puja, we pay homage to the archetypal divine in  
each other. We begin with elements of white tantra yoga: meditation,  
pranayama, secret subtle-body (internal) yoga, mantra, mudra, kundalini  
awareness, and more. A moving circle is formed, and you get the  
opportunity to have a moment with other guests, sharing a specific  
guided (completely non-explicit) tantric exchange, which might consist  
of eye gazing or light touch. Participation in all practices is  
completely optional. Meditative observance is welcome at any time. The  
puja ritual is by donation, and no one is turned away for lack of  
funds. Like all events at Temple, RSVP is required. Please allow at  
least 2 hrs. 11/28, 12/16
