Meditation Group
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. The group is open to all, including people who are experienced in meditation, and also to those who are completely new to the experience. 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. The group is open to all practitioners of meditation. We emphasize basic mindfulness, but are also open to all those who follow a particular school of meditation. 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.

For more information about the current month’s schedule, please contact Pamala Lewis: pamalalewis@comcast.net or Jean Jerbert: j.jerbert@yahoo.com

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. Please contact Sue Laires at susan@lairesdesign.com for more information.
