On Easter, the Range ran a meditation from Tucson musician Ricky Gelb that received a great response — 198 Facebook "likes" thus far. Gelb shared with the Range that starting Sunday, April 29, he'll be doing two guided meditations a week at Three Jewels, 314 E. 6th St.
"Starting Sunday April 29, 8 am, I will be doing guided meditation for folks in recovery. The meditations will be based around the 11th Step - 'Improving our conscious contact with God (of your understanding or non-understanding) through prayer and meditation,'" Gelb told us.
"Starting May 1st 7:15 pm I will be doing candlelit guided meditation for the general public to help make the work week more enjoyable, based around relaxation, being in the moment and gratitude, to help folks get out of compulsive spun thinking and into authentic centered being."

And here's some more of that Meditain Love a la Gelb:
We are the children of the children of the beginning
In the beginning, there were two entities that arose from nothingness and unknowing. Nothingness morphed into stillness and unknowing morphed into love. And they began to dance throughout eternity and their passion created energy. Which spawned matter that we call planets. This is the story of the Earth & The Sun. The Sun, a son of eternal passion, fell endlessly in love with The Earth, the daughter of love and the first mother we know. The Sun, still and dormant set itself on fire out of passion and in a fatherly style out of care and devotion for the Earth and her future. His love for the Earth is so strong, he will burn beyond knowing. The rays of the sun procreated life on The Earth and he was fulfilled, as he inherently knew what an amazing mother The Earth will be.
The Moon, who subdued all but it's eye, couldn't stop observing The Earth & The Sun. Their romantic power awoke the internal emotive passion of lunar love in The Moon. He gravitated to the magnetism between The Earth & The Sun and he found inner peace. He devoted himself from that day forward to act as a reflection of such love and beam it into the heart of all future life.
So in every human heart is a universe of love.
As we are the children of the children of the beginning whose dance is endless before and beyond matter.
As we are all inseparable from the greatest mystery known as God.
