Welcome the wisdom of A Course in Miracles. We will meet weekly to build a circle of support for this profound and life-changing inner work that focuses on renewing our minds in positive ways to heal ourselves, our relationships and many aspects of our lives. The Course consists of 365 lessons, an exercise for each day or done at your own pace. Begin the process of changing your mind and your perceptions of life experiences with the aim of removing blocks to the awareness of love's presence within and all about.

Spiritual Awakening and Meditation

Wednesdays      Weekly       5-6 pm

 

Join us for a quiet time of exploration and meditation.


Guided meditation leads into a period of silence, a time to quiet the mind and release stress. We listen to the wisdom of inspiring spiritual teachers and then return to silence, a time to empty and reconnect to Source. Some instruction offered as we develop and deepen our practice. All levels of experience welcome.


The first Wednesday of each month will be a time for contemplative coloring, a relaxing form of active meditation. Repetitive motions like coloring strengthen your focus and shift your attention back to the present moment. Enjoy calming music as you color.

Facilitated by Wendy Herschman, who enjoys sharing the joy of group meditation.
