Fee: $100  Fee includes cost of weekend workshop.

Introduction to Meditation I:  

Ongoing Monthly Meditation Class

This course introduces both passive and active meditation techniques with opportunities both to discuss and practice the different elements of meditation. However, moving from simple meditation techniques to more powerful ones takes considerable time to master. This introductory course will lay a solid foundation for continued practice and study of meditation and spiritual science. Required Text: Volume I of Adventure in Meditation - Spirituality for the 21st Century by Carol E. Parrish-Harrah.

Teacher: Rev. Patsy

Schedule: This class is by request and includes individual mentoring and a monthly meditation class (to be arranged with group participants).  

Fee:  $15 per session.

Until such time when I live in

The Place behind the Words

The Place of the Primal Pulse

       The Sea of Silence

       Source of Love Wisdom

  I write in the rhythm set

    by those before me

  With words that resonate

    in my heart.

  Listening to the wisdom

    of many teachers

  Experiencing the Path paved

    with Words of Truth

  Truth limited by the Confines of Words.

Creative Invocations

Mike Mason writes the invocations for the Sunday morning services.  They are too good to keep to ourselves. Here is the one for last Sunday.  Visit www.MikesCreativeOutlet.com to learn more about the services Mike offers the community.  

 

Father, Mother Creator,

As we sail our Ships of Life through Your Waters,

We may navigate by the stars.

We may navigate by the sextant.

We may navigate by our inner knowing.

And, no matter how we choose to travel,

We can always count on Your Guiding Light.

Like a lighthouse, You rescue us from our fears,

Or remind us of where we should be,

Or remind us of where we are.

For no matter the journey each one of us is on, 

The destination is the same for All.

Help us to always see The Light.

Amen.
