 Take a few moments to walk among the beings…

All Beings Confluence is a community-based, interactive project that was directly inspired by Carolyn McDade, a composer, social activist and environmentalist whose music has sustained and nourished many over the decades.

All Beings Confluence is an ever-expanding installation crated by many individuals. It consists of a series of long, narrow sheer panels, each representing a single living Being — perhaps a ladybug, a bird, a tree, or a single blue-green algae who first provided our planet with oxygen. The completed panels are installed to fill a whole area and a single panel is never seen by itself. It is always “in community” with all the other Beings. Everyone is invited to walk among them – they move gently with the currents, always merging into different patterns & combinations of colour & light. For a brief moment we can actually feel ourselves as part of a vast, complex & interconnected whole.

The Bethlehem Centre is lucky enough to have the All Beings banners in its possession on the heels of a weekend workshop filled with Carolyn McDade’s music. If we are lucky, the composer herself may grace us with her presence during the All Beings open house.

Please drop between 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, June 26th and enjoy this meditative art installation in our Chapel. Admission is by donation.
