Meditation
7:15 AM to 8:30 AM
Everyone is most welcome! The Meditation Group meets twice weekly: at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday mornings and at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday evenings. Basic guidelines are offered to all newcomers, and guided mediation is offered during some of the sessions.

Each session includes 30 minutes of silent sitting mediation, 10 minutes of walking mediation, and 15 minutes of dharma sharing, in which folks may, if they choose, share their meditation experiences. On one evening a month the sitting meditation is enhanced by the playing of Tibetan prayer bowls. And on most second Wednesdays, our coordinator offers guided meditation with the body, an extremely gentle combination of yoga and meditation, from 5:00 to 5:30 pm. Attendance is free but donations are gratefully accepted.

Journey Within
6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
All are welcome. Journey Within is a weekly support group that explores our relationship with ourselves as it relates to food, exercise and all other aspects of self-care. Our goal is to work on the challenges that block us from becoming our best selves. If you would like a safe place to develop more commitment around how you treat your mind, body and soul, then join us on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.
For more information, contact: Sue Laires: susan@lairesdesign.com
Craft Circle
7:00 PM
We are an inclusive social group of adults interested in crafts. We gather with each other on Wednesday evenings to work on our own current personal projects in a wide array of areas. Whatever the skill: knit, crochet, needlepoint, zentangle, sewing, quilting, beadwork, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, we are willing to teach what we know to others. Perhaps you have a skill we are not familiar with and we may learn from you.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.
