English language

Spanish Subtitles

In 1494, Christopher Columbus made a second journey to the Americas—this time with more ships, more men, and a grander mission. His goal was to build the first European colony in the New World. But in just a few short years, this settlement would perish with one-fifth of its inhabitants dead, at least six ships sunk in the bay, and the legacy of Columbus permanently marred. What happened at this ill-fated settlement remains a mystery 500 years later.Now, National Geographic joins teams of archaeologists as they journey to uncover new evidence of the failure of America’s first European city, La Isabela.

Richard Dawkins: The God Delusion, Saturday, July 30th at 5 pm. In this hard-hitting statement of personal belief, noted scientist and the world’s most prominent atheist asserts the irrationality of belief in God and the grievous harm religion has inflicted on society. With rigor and wit, Dawkins examines God in all his forms, from the ‘tyrant’ of the Old Testament to the more benign (but still illogical) Celestial Watchmaker favored by some Enlightenment thinkers. Lively discussion to follow! 50 pesos.

Language English

At a time when immigration reform continues to be one of the most heated topics in political and business circles, this 2-hour special reexamines the controversial war that resulted in the United States taking control of what was nearly half of Mexico's territory. Featuring lavish reenactments, and interviews with both Mexican and American historians to ensure accuracy from both nations' points of view, we convey the story of President James K. Polk's desire to expand US territory to the Pacific Ocean. Hosted by boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya, we also travel to Mexico City to visit the historic Castillo de Chapultepec, where the climactic battle of the war took place, and the Palacio Nacional, the home of Mexico's government.

The two hour program is divided into two parts: Part 1 begins with the overthrow of dictator Porfirio Diaz in 1910 through ten bloody years of armed conflict, which is a complicated history but well told. Part 2 tells the story of the legacy of the revolution and ends with the shocking 1968 massacre at the Tlatelolco housing project in Mexico City. Anyone with any interest in our southern neighbor will benefit from this excellent program by understanding better the turmoil they have been through these past hundred years.

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

A special thanks to Mrs. Cleo kamelhar for use the History of Mexico documentary of her loving husband Murray kamelhar.

Using the voices of four actors and 334 slides, the personalities, artists and events, from the Olmecs to the present’s time, The History of Mexico comes alive. The victories, the defeats under overwhelming odds, through tragedy and determination, the heroic Mexican people survive in triumph.

The history of Mexico, a country in the southern portion of North America, covers a period of more than three millennia. First populated more than 13,000 years ago, the territory had complex indigenous civilizations before being conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. One of the important aspects of Mesoamerican civilizations was their development of a form of writing, so that Mexico's written history stretches back hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spaniards in 1519. This era before the arrival of Europeans is called variously the pre Hispanic era or the pre Columbian era.

By Profr.Irineo Muñoz
Hummingbirds take extraordinary to a whole new level. They are the smallest warm-blooded creatures on the planet, but they are also among the fastest. With wings that beat up to 200 times every second, they are among nature’s most accomplished athletes, the only birds able to hover, fly backwards, and even upside down. Hummingbird metabolisms are set in permanent overdrive, requiring them to consume more than half their body weight in nectar every day, yet even so, they remain in constant threat of starving to death as they sleep. To survive the night, they fluff up their feathers and adjust their thermostats, decreasing their body temperatures by half and reducing their heart rate from 600 beats per minute to a mere 36.

Because hummingbirds live their lives in fast forward, much of their fascinating world is typically lost to human perception. But using cameras able to capture over 500 images a second, the hummingbirds’ magical world can finally be seen and appreciated. Amazing footage shows these little powerhouses are far more than delicate nectar gatherers — they are also deadly predators. And watch as the birds display their elaborate mating rituals, showing off with nose dives that subject them to over ten G’s of force — enough to cause an experienced fighter pilot to black out! These tiny marvels dazzle and delight bird watchers all over the world, and NATURE reveals their stunning abilities as they have never been seen before.

San Miguel Allende is a city that today is an important reference point for poets and musicians. The various artistic manifestations have managed to creat a plural and inclusive city, that bring us the escenary to smells, instead listen and feel all that is done in this little corner of the bajio.

In this context the concert harp and guitar of Teacher Basurto is a necessary anf unforgettable experience. We heard a tour with latin American music from Venezuela, Cuba, Paraguay Spain and Mexico. The harp is magic and the master shows the way to learned this vast music.

The second half of the concert is flamenco, poetry and feeling. Here the guitarist brilliantly plays and stimulates the heart which is well worth it.

San Miguel Allende es una ciudad que hoy por hoy es un referente importante para poetas y músicos. Las diversas manifestaciones artísticas han logrado crear una ciudad plural, incluyente, interesante que nos permite sentir, oler, escuchar lo que se produce en este ríncon del bajío. En este contexto de una ciudad que provoca, el concierto de arpa y guitarra de Sergio Basurto es una experiencia estimulante y necesaria. Asistimos a un encuentro de música latinoamericana de Venezuela, Cuba, Paraguay España y México. El arpa es magia y así Basurto con esa sensibilidad que lo caracteriza nos acerca a la vasta cultura latinoamericana marcando las diferencias regionales que integran este continente.

Así la segunda mitad del concierto es flamenco, poesía y sentimiento puro. Basurto nos induce y nos emociona, estimula nuestro corazón que bien merece la pena.

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

In the past decade, researchers working in Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula have made a series of startling discoveries that reveal a gaping hole in our understanding of the magnificence of the Maya. What we thought we knew about them could suddenly turn out to be just half the story.

By Javier Estrada:
Remote, sleepy eyes, with a lost look on the vast horizon, wearing arrogant colors and wrapped in the music of the infinite hymn of the poor squeals of their wrecked carts, decorated by the sounds of the hoofs of his solitaries horses, they enter these lands in the fifteenth century.

Where do they come from? So strange, so proud, while these women breastfeed their young kids; the elderly more idly, wondering these new paths. Here is the price to pay to remain what they have always been, birds of passage, intrusive outsiders: the patriarch of the clan scrutinizes between the cracks of the landscape and think that heres, as any other part of the world, the tribe will not give up for anything, an old custom which they call Freedom.

In this guitar concert, Javier Estrada will describe with musical notes and poetry, the life of the Roma People. Do not miss this unique experience.

Por Javier Estrada:
Remotos con la mirada soñolienta por la nada del horizonte, vestidos con colores arrogantes y envueltos en la música del himno pobre e infinito que forman el chirrido de sus carretas y los cascos de sus caballos solitarios entran a estas tierras en el siglo XV.

¿De dónde vienen? tan extraños tan orgullosos, mientras esas muchachas les dan teta a sus crías; los ancianos más impasibles sortean estos nuevos caminos preguntándose el precio que aquí hay que pagar por seguir siendo lo que han sido siempre, aves de paso, forasteros intrusos: el patriarca del clan escruta entre las grietas del paisaje y piensa que su tribu aquí como en cualquier otro territorio del mundo no habrá de renunciar para nada a su patria p

San Miguel Allende is a city that today is an important reference point for poets and musicians. The various artistic manifestations have managed to creat a plural and inclusive city, that bring us the escenary to smells, instead listen and feel all that is done in this little corner of the bajio.

In this context the concert harp and guitar of Teacher Basurto is a necessary anf unforgettable experience. We heard a tour with latin American music from Venezuela, Cuba, Paraguay Spain and Mexico. The harp is magic and the master shows the way to learned this vast music.

The second half of the concert is flamenco, poetry and feeling. Here the guitarist brilliantly plays and stimulates the heart which is well worth it.

San Miguel Allende es una ciudad que hoy por hoy es un referente importante para poetas y músicos. Las diversas manifestaciones artísticas han logrado crear una ciudad plural, incluyente, interesante que nos permite sentir, oler, escuchar lo que se produce en este ríncon del bajío. En este contexto de una ciudad que provoca, el concierto de arpa y guitarra de Sergio Basurto es una experiencia estimulante y necesaria. Asistimos a un encuentro de música latinoamericana de Venezuela, Cuba, Paraguay España y México. El arpa es magia y así Basurto con esa sensibilidad que lo caracteriza nos acerca a la vasta cultura latinoamericana marcando las diferencias regionales que integran este continente.

Así la segunda mitad del concierto es flamenco, poesía y sentimiento puro. Basurto nos induce y nos emociona, estimula nuestro corazón que bien merece la pena.

The intimate setting of Plata will give a chance to meet and get to know these artists and their work in a way that is unique and personal. Each week we will invite different individuals to be a part of the event!

Los músicos interpretarán su música original, los artistas visuales presentará su medio, y bailarines realizará una pieza originalmente coreografiado.

El entorno íntimo de Plata le dará la oportunidad de conocer a estos artistas y su trabajo de una manera que es única y personal. Cada semana vamos a invitar a diferentes personas para ser parte del evento!

The practice of meditation gathers, centers, and calms the mind. It allows one to see through the mind’s conditioning and thereby live more fully in the present moment.

The SMA Meditation Community is an open, flowing collection of people from different traditions (including various Buddhist lineages) who share a love of sitting in silence. We also share a love of spiritual community free of doctrine or belief, based in equality and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome. Because friendships with like-minded people support the inner path, we usually meet informally after sittings to share ideas and come to know one another.

Although the forty-minute silent meditations begin at 10:10 and end at 10:50, please feel free to come and go quietly at any time. Meditation assistance is available before or after the sit.

For more in-depth meditation instruction, ask Ann Barden (Vipassana) or Jerry Steward (general) at jermer@hotmail.com, 154-0877.

All offerings are free, donations welcome. For more information or to be on our mailing list, contact: SMAMC@lifepathretreats.com

A special thanks to Mrs. Cleo kamelhar for use the History of Mexico documentary of her loving husband Murray kamelhar.

Using the voices of four actors and 334 slides, the personalities, artists and events, from the Olmecs to the present’s time, The History of Mexico comes alive. The victories, the defeats under overwhelming odds, through tragedy and determination, the heroic Mexican people survive in triumph.

The history of Mexico, a country in the southern portion of North America, covers a period of more than three millennia. First populated more than 13,000 years ago, the territory had complex indigenous civilizations before being conquered by the Spanish in the 16th century. One of the important aspects of Mesoamerican civilizations was their development of a form of writing, so that Mexico's written history stretches back hundreds of years before the arrival of the Spaniards in 1519. This era before the arrival of Europeans is called variously the pre Hispanic era or the pre Columbian era.

02:00pm-  
Cost: 60
Location: Teatro Santa Ana, Biblioteca, Relox 50A
Contact:
Website:

By Profr.Irineo Muñoz
Hummingbirds take extraordinary to a whole new level. They are the smallest warm-blooded creatures on the planet, but they are also among the fastest. With wings that beat up to 200 times every second, they are among nature’s most accomplished athletes, the only birds able to hover, fly backwards, and even upside down. Hummingbird metabolisms are set in permanent overdrive, requiring them to consume more than half their body weight in nectar every day, yet even so, they remain in constant threat of starving to death as they sleep. To survive the night, they fluff up their feathers and adjust their thermostats, decreasing their body temperatures by half and reducing their heart rate from 600 beats per minute to a mere 36.

Because hummingbirds live their lives in fast forward, much of their fascinating world is typically lost to human perception. But using cameras able to capture over 500 images a second, the hummingbirds’ magical world can finally be seen and appreciated. Amazing footage shows these little powerhouses are far more than delicate nectar gatherers — they are also deadly predators. And watch as the birds display their elaborate mating rituals, showing off with nose dives that subject them to over ten G’s of force — enough to cause an experienced fighter pilot to black out! These tiny marvels dazzle and delight bird watchers all over the world, and NATURE reveals their stunning abilities as they have never been seen before.

English Language

Few American artists have reached a wider audience, or enjoyed more widespread popularity in their own lifetime, than Ansel Adams. None has had more profound an impact on how Americans grasp the majesty of their continent, or done more to transform how people think and feel about the meaning of the natural world. A visionary photographer, a pioneer in photographic technique and a crusader for the environment, Adams would take part in an extraordinary revolution: in photography, and ways of seeing what he called "the continuous beauty of the things that are." His greatest photographs would seek to capture "the instant of revelation -- of timelessness" amidst the evanescence of the natural world. Ansel Adams is the intimate portrait of a great artist and ardent environmentalist -- for whom life and art, photography and wilderness, creativity and communication, love and expression, were inextricably connected.

A film by EilaHershon , Roberto Guerra and Wibke Von Bonin, Editing Caroline Emmonds , production Mexico, Henriqueta de la Garza Narrated by Saba Thompson,Music ballet folcloriconacionalAztlan, Premastered by digim. Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 -- July 13, 1954; born Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán, and perhaps best known for her self-portraits. Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. She gave her birth date as July 7, 1910, but her birth certificate shows July 6, 1907. Kahlo had allegedly wanted the year of her birth to coincide with the year of the beginning of the Mexican revolution so that her life would begin with the birth of modern Mexico. At the age of six, Frida developed polio, which caused her right leg to appear much thinner than the other. It was to remain that way permanently. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. Mexican culture and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as Naïve art or folk art.
