A huge thank you to Suharto for sharing his Subud Story this past Sunday. It was a moving and inspiring tale (can't wait for the movie!).

Our Spring Event is going to be New Life for Old Bags, a community activity where participants make plastic "yarn" out of old plastic bags and then weave them into sleeping mats for homeless people. Please check your e-mail for the sign up link!


Thanks to those that came out to our Annual General Meeting today. We had a nice time reviewing the changes and improvements to our group this year. Excited to continue our growth together in the coming year!


Happy Holidays everyone! This is a reminder that we are not having our regularly scheduled latihan this Wednesday or next Wednesday due to Christmas, Hanukkah, and the New Year. We will resume our regular schedule the second week of January. Also, get ready for game night next month! Stay warm!


Subud World Congress begins in Puebla Mexico! Two weeks, Aug 2-17, 2014. Many Chicago membership will be attending the event, which should be very exciting as it draws thousands of Subud members from all around the globe. Registration information, news and daily updates can be found on the site


Several months ago, the committee-helper dewan of Subud Chicago decided to have group events four times a year, one in each season. Our most recent one was the Breast Cancer Walk along Lake Michigan. July 19 we are planning a picnic in MIllennium Park in conjunction with a concert by the Grant Park Orchestra. Compositions will be by Dvorzak and Beethoven. The concert begins at 7:30 so we will meet at 6 P.M. for a picnic on the lawn.


Our local member and Chair, Mahallia Ward Pollard, will be performing with the Joffrey ballet this weekend. La Bayadere: The Temple Dancer will be playing at the Auditorium Theater in downtown Chicago this Friday at 7:30, Saturday at 2:00 and 7:30, and Sunday at 2:00.

Here is the link:


Kejiwaan hour is this Sunday, October 27th after our regularly scheduled latihan time. If you are interested, please come!


Welcome to the new Subud Chicago website! It's a work in progress and will likely face many changes over the next few weeks. I plan to work on the layout, add pictures, profiles, and features like this newsfeed. Here, we can keep ourselves updated with important information about the group and individual members. If you have anything you would like to appear in the newsfeed, please e-mail me! And if you have any suggestions about things to add/change, please let me know! I am excited and grateful that I get to work with and for the group.


Seven golden circles transected by seven radial lines is the emblem of Subud. The circle has always been regarded as the symbol of endlessness, for is has no stopping point. The circle as a symbol means that belief in the possibility of unlimited development, endless progress of the human soul.

The seven circles indicate that this development implies different levels, and that within each level there is a source out of which all proceeds and into which it returns.
