Contemplative Connections in the spirit of Citizen University and On Being
An open and ongoing support gathering. Acknowledge that we witness and are affected by injustice, and harness the mutual support of community to live into what’s possible.
Gather to share your heart with others and be known. Build 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 will go inward to reflect and open to connect as we approach the waning moon.
Inspired byOn Being broadcasts and in the spirit of Citizen University. We invite all members of our community to connect in mindfulness, personal discovery, transformation, supportive socializing, + collective action. Sessions involve time spent in circle interaction,mindful movement, meditation, and relationship building.
