You never know what you're going to get at the Wednesday morning session—but there are always several smiling faces to greet you and encourage your meditation practice. Whether you have a practice or are curious to begin building a practice of meditation, this session is welcome to all-comers (as are all of the sessions).

On Friday mornings you know what you're going to get: a good dose of Steve's calming presence and a reading from the book he likes to read from:
Eastern Wisdom for Your Soul
by Richard Singer.
hosted by Steve
If you believe Sundays are for resting, centering, and transitioning to a deeper place of being then this session is for you. And afterwards you can walk across the breezeway and experience a Community Church service.
