On July 12th and 19th, Dr. Maya Sarkisyan, Taoist teacher and practitioner, will be with us.
Join the Interfaith Network on Thursday evenings for a new series of meditation gatherings. We will be exploring meditation practice in an interfaith context, using and adapting Buddhist mindfulness, Jewish kaballah, Christian centering prayer, Muslim dhikr, Hindu chakra contemplation, Taoist qi gong and other meditative practices. Each session will include a presentation as well as practice. We are calling this series Rainbow Meditation to honor the colorful array of traditions it incorporates.
The group will meet at First Congregational Church at 1415 North K Street at 7 pm. Love offering will be donated to the church.
Meditation is a type of prayer focused on quieting the mind, which in turn fosters contemplation and a deepening connection with Spirit. Many, perhaps most, of the world’s faith-traditions, practice some form of meditation under a variety of names. If you feel hurried, a need to slow down, a desire to find new paths to draw closer to divine spirit, please join us on this path of discovery and invite your friends.
May 17 – Meditation Sampler (Jewish, Christian and Taoist)
May 24, 31 – Buddhist Meditation
Thereafter, various experienced meditation coaches will lead each week. We aim to have enough support to continue through the summer.
