Interspiritual Contemplative Groups:
Religious and spiritual teachings and wisdom have proven to us that contemplative practice can provide powerful pathways to awareness, compassion, love, and “oneness”. Centering prayer, meditation, mindfulness, and “Lectio Divina” are just a few of the contemplative practices embraced by today’s mainstream traditions. These, along with
other practices, allow us to open our hearts to self and to each other.
Interspiritual Contemplative Groups create an environment where persons of various faiths (or none) can gather monthly for contemplative practice and community building. Our groups are purposefully designed to focus on personal experience and inter-personal relationships rather than institutionalized theology and doctrine. We begin our gatherings in contemplative practice with 20 minutes of silence. We then engage in discussion on the personal spirituality of our participants, or a topic that allows us to share experiences from each other’s faith. Group facilitators gently guide discussions to ensure all voices are heard. The rich dialogue that ensues fosters interfaith/interspiritual friendship, understanding and growth. All this goodwill in 90 minutes!
Each group meets one Sunday evening per month 6:30 to 8 pm at the locations indicated. You are welcome to come to either or both groups.
