Contemplative Connections in the spirit of Citizen University and On Being
Welcome to this open and ongoing support gathering, a space to acknowledge that we all witness and are affected by injustice. Harness the mutual support of community to live into what’s possible.
Gather to share your heart with others and be known. In community, open to that which seeks to emerge through you - that gift to the world only you can bring, as your uniqueness, and only in relationship. Using principles such as the Brahmaviharas and the Six Stations of the Mind, we go inward to reflect and open to connect, meeting on the waning moon.
Inspired byOn Being broadcasts and in the spirit of Citizen University, our purpose is to connect in mindfulness, personal growth, transformation, and supportive socializing to discover modes of personal and collective action.
Sessions involve time spent in meditation, mindful movement, circle interaction and relationship building.
Sundays, on the Waning Moons: 6:30 - 8:30 pm February 3 March 3 March 31 April 28 June 2
Sliding Scale $15 - $25 drop-in, or Sliding Scale $95 - $125 for the series
