Friday Night Live

Life. Stories. Music

February 3rd, 2017 

February 3rd was a really snowy evening, but it was all warm with love and reflection inside FNL with Shawn and Kohei!  Amazing stories of transformation, and everyone was singing along with the moving ballads ….  Peace, love.  When we remember that is what we were born to be, we can be the healing of […]

January 27th, 2017

So, have you ever done something that really scares you?  Something that there was a real risk you could fail?  We were really nervous about changing our tried-and-true FNL format, but we knew it was time.  We’d been ‘improvising’ for 6 years, and we had lots of feedback that people were wanting to hear more from […]

Fall 2016

This fall at FNL has been a blessing of continuous learning experiences.  From Beverley Elliott’s reflections on childhood and choices we make further down the life path, through Nathen Aswell’s reminder to ‘do that thing that makes you sing’, and our most recent  FNL with Shawn Bullshields story of transition and leaning courageously into that […]

Summer 2016

The FNL production crew is working the programming for the 2016 – 2017 FNL season:  September 23rd, 2016 through May 2017. We are working with the feedback we’ve received from people who attend and participate in FNL, and are continuing to evolve the FNL experience.  We’ve heard you appreciate the musical guests – and would […]

March 25th

  If you were fortunate enough to be at FNL on Good Friday, March 25th … you’ll know it was a GREAT Friday.  Our special guest, recording artist Christopher (The Lion) Arruda, was truly remarkable.  His story of living his life’s purpose, and of what he has learned along his journey, was inspiring.  What we learned […]

February 19th – 2016

We had a great time with Brett Wildeman on Feb 19th!  A folksinger and environmentalist from the Sunshine Coast,  this young musician really modelled for us living a life of passion and purpose. His music was honest and authentic, and he played ‘full on’ with our amazing Ad Libretto improvising troupe!  Life is an amazing journey, into […]

February 5th, 2016

Our February 5th FNL with Ruby and Smith was fantastic!  Ruby’s hauntingly beautiful voice and Smiths ‘Van Halen on the Ukulele’ skills certainly demonstrated that we were experiencing the ‘Duke and Duchess of Ukes’!  Ruby taught us to sing the chorus of her beautiful song, with the quote from Martin Luther:  ‘Even if I knew […]

January 22nd, 2016

Wow!  Welcome to 2016!  We have had two fantastic FNLs – Camilo on Jan 15th, and Illiteratty Jan 22nd!  We’re so grateful that we are continuing to welcome our ‘regulars’ as well as new people that are discovering the joy of spending Friday evening in celebration of ‘living in the moment!’   Illiteratty had everyone singing […]

November 20th, 2015

On November 20th, the absolutely remarkable guitarist Skip Prest jointed FNL as our special musical Guest.  Skip has certainly ‘lived the dream’ of a internationally-celebrated rock musician, and was so generous in sharing his talent with us!  Sharing his love of music, and ‘playing’ with our improvisers (Alan, Liz and Shaun) and musical improviser Matt, the […]

November 13th, 2015

Our November 13th FNL was the day that Paris experienced unexplainable tragedy.  In holding that truth of the world with the miracle of our experience of living in the peace and abundance of Lynn Valley, we know that each moment truly is precious.  What a gift to live each moment.  No script.  Leaning in to […]
