Sunday Sacred Circle: Matters of the Heart
Sundays Weekly 5-6 pm
Nourish your spirit: a time of introspection, ecumenical and inter-religious unity expressed through prayer, chanting, inspirational readings and silence with Spirit.
Facilitated by inspired members of the circle.
Spiritual Ecology Circle
Mondays Weekly 6-7:15 pm
Join us to explore the spiritual dimension of our present ecological crisis. This Circle grows out of the awareness that the outer destruction we see in the world is related to an inner disconnection from and disregard for the sacred within all of life. Through book studies, film screenings, speakers, ceremonies and activities in nature, we will explore ideas and ways of seeing that bring us back into relationship with an animate, ensouled world. Cultivating a sense of humility and joy in being a part of the natural world, we will move towards an ethics of responsibility, reciprocity, care and love for each other, the earth and all beings.
Please note: The aim of this group is to be both a safe space where we can feel supported in expressing and exploring our experiences and emotions relating to nature and the crises we face, and a brave space where we are encouraged and challenged to learn and expand our perspectives. The multiple crises we face are interconnected, and we cannot talk about ecological destruction without talking about white supremacy, sexism, ableism and other forms of oppression. Before joining our circle, please consider if you are willing to embrace discomfort and commit to holding multiple perspectives at the same time. Silence, listening, vulnerability, self-awareness, presence, respect, depth, compassion, courage and non-judgement are skills we are practicing in this circle, and we are all both students and teachers to each other.

Discover more about yourself as you learn to work with your dreams. The language of dreams offers valuable insights into understanding your relationships, your choices, your past and your future. Basic elements of Carl Jung’s work are a part of this exploration. While studying and sharing dreams, we learn ways to interpret and understand them in a meaningful way.
