The "Clapping Registers" meditation group sits in silent meditation for a period of 20-30 minutes. We then have a reading from a variety of books on meditation, typically Buddhist. A discussion on the evening's reading follows. We then sit for another 15-20 minutes of silent meditation. All are welcome. There are some cushions in the chapel and benches and chairs are also available. We would suggest wearing comfortable clothing and bring a cushion or zafu if you like.
This is a covenant group for older parents who have teens. We will focus on spiritual growth, using our experiences as older parents with teens as a central part of the conversation.
We are a self-led group of practitioners of mindfulness meditation. Most of us have taken a course in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and share a desire to gather regularly in a group setting in support of our personal practices. However, anyone is welcome to join us to give meditation a try. We have several group members who rotate as facilitators. Typically we meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays each month.
This community covenant group is now closed to new folks. Please notify Lyn Marshall if you'd like to be notified of new Covenant Group opportunities as they arise.
“Daily Acts of Generosity,” Rev. Michael Leuchtenberger I like to think of Unitarian Universalists as “Athletes of the Heart.” And just like any athlete, our health and success depend on a solid warm-up preparing us to be our best, our compassionate best - a warm-up greatly enhanced by stretching our tendons of generosity and loosening our muscles of giving with joy. Calling all “Athletes of the Heart” to practice daily acts of generosity.
