Friday Night Live

Be Together - Be Inspired

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

October 30th, 2015

Our ‘night before Halloween’ FNL was truly magical!  We had our pal, Joel Eddington, back to do his unique and amazing magic.  We had a group of young folks doing Halloween crafts before the show,  we had a great showing of creative costumes, and we even had a spirited Halloween Dance-Off! What I was reminded […]

September 25th, 2015

Our first Friday back after our summer break was fantastic!  So may of our friends were back after the break, and had great stories to share.  So many new friends discovered us from a variety of sources – articles in the North Shore News, the Music in the Park event on Labour Day (where Alan […]

On our last FNL before our summer ‘dark’ time (we will be back!  Sept 25th we’ll be celebrating Culture Days with our first ‘Fall Season FNL’), I was so inspired by the energy sparking from the community that gathers for our weekly celebration of ‘spirit through the performing arts’. As I looked around the room at […]

The metaphors of magic and ‘being in the moment’ are so especially profound for me when we have a magician as a guest at FNL.  On May 29th, we had the fabulous Joel Eddington as our FNL guest – a young magician who continues to wow us as he stretches his craft – learning and […]
