Upcoming Events

TUE
Meditation
7:15 AM to 8:30 AM
Everyone is most welcome! The Meditation Group meets twice weekly: at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday mornings and at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday evenings. Basic guidelines are offered to all newcomers, and guided mediation is offered during some of the sessions.

Each session includes 30 minutes of silent sitting mediation, 10 minutes of walking mediation, and 15 minutes of dharma sharing, in which folks may, if they choose, share their meditation experiences. On one evening a month the sitting meditation is enhanced by the playing of Tibetan prayer bowls. And on most second Wednesdays, our coordinator offers guided meditation with the body, an extremely gentle combination of yoga and meditation, from 5:00 to 5:30 pm. Attendance is free but donations are gratefully accepted.

For more information about the current month’s schedule, please contact Pamala Lewis: pamalalewis@comcast.net or Jean Jerbert: j.jerbert@yahoo.com
Quiet Time with Singing Bowls
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
The tones produced by Himalayan singing bowls can be a unique entry into a place of calm, peace, healing, and harmony. Each bowl, when sounded, produces from two to five separate harmonic tones, some steady tones and some warbling or fluttering tones. When two or more bowls are played together the result is a complex, interweaving dance of tones that can be profoundly relaxing and peaceful and can lead to a meditative experience.

If you have never heard several singing bowls played together, you have never really heard singing bowls.

Please consider joining John Irwin, who has been playing singing bowls for over three years, each Tuesday evening at All Souls from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a period of peace and relaxation.

All are welcome.

Craft Circle
7:00 PM
We are an inclusive social group of adults interested in crafts. We gather with each other on Wednesday evenings to work on our own current personal projects in a wide array of areas. Whatever the skill: knit, crochet, needlepoint, zentangle, sewing, quilting, beadwork, cross-stitch, scrapbooking, we are willing to teach what we know to others. Perhaps you have a skill we are not familiar with and we may learn from you.

Childcare is not provided. Come and be with us as your schedule permits: once a week or once a month, whatever works for you.

Note: Members of our group are highly sensitive to perfume. Please refrain from wearing scent.
