Exoteric Holy Saturday: SILENT VIGIL.


Sunday, April 21, 2019 @ 4 pm 
Exoteric Easter Sunday:
ASNYC community potluck and presentation by Jonathan Hilton on the Resurrection Body.


138 West 15th Street, NYC (between 6th and 7th avenues)

Festival gatherings. Donations welcome.



The Festival Group holds a silent space from 7-9 pm for all to come and join in the contemplative mood of Holy Saturday. Feel free to come and go during the two hours as you please. We will all maintain silence upon entering the front door of the Branch and throughout the whole space as an offering to all who wish to hold the dark, quiet, searching mood that this festival day calls us to remember.

ASNYC Community Gathering and Potluck


Jonathan Hilton will open the gathering with a brief talk on the mystery of Easter and the Resurrection and the connection to the mystery of the physical body. We often think of the physical body as the physical material body. But what is the true physical body and what impact did the Resurrection have on it? We will briefly explore this question by considering three images of the physical body out of spiritual science. 

Then we will continue the celebratory Easter mood with conversations and potluck. We invite you to bring savory dishes, finger food, bread, eggs, sweets, drinks, or anything else that you would like to share. Please let us know in advance what you will be contributing by emailing Thank you.
