Instead of voting to cut farmworker wages, Congressman Cuellar should be championing legislation to increase farm worker protections and provide overtime pay.

Join us as we visit his Mission office this Thrusday at 117 E Tom Landry St, Mission, Texas 78572
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
El congresista Cuellar recientemente votó a favor de reducir el salario de los trabajadores agrícolas de Texas en $ 3 por hora, perjudicando a los trabajadores de la misma industria que permitieron que sus padres lo cubrieran de niño.

En lugar de votar para recortar los salarios de los trabajadores del campo, el congresista Cuéllar debería defender una legislación para aumentar la protección de los trabajadores agrícolas y proporcionar un pago por horas extras.

Acompañanos este jueves cuando visitemos su oficina de Misión en 117 E Tom Landry St, Mission, Texas 78572″

5. September 29 – Evening Kundalini Meditation with Elizabeth

6:30 PM – 8 PM

Infinite Love
2205 Cornerstone Blvd, Edinburg, Texas 78539

Event description:

“Join Osho Sannyasi Elizabeth Lomas for a special active meditation Saturday evenings at the Infinite Love Center in Edinburg. This is a gift from us to the community. So, there is no cost to attend. Wear comfortable clothing.

OSHO KUNDALINI MEDITATION
This “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic is best done at sunset or in the late afternoon. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.”
