THIS SUNDAY - THE POWER OF DEEP SILENCE
Our official summer themes and Gathers are about to get started, and before they do, we'll take a moment, take a breath and go deep. The practice of silence is common throughout the various religions and spiritual paths, and this Sunday we'll explore some of those practices, then see how each of us would adapt those practices to fit our own spiritual style.
MORE ABOUT SUNDAY GATHERS...
Weekly Sunday Gathers are sacred events to connect with our divine selves, with each other and with something larger that connects us all. We do this through guided meditation, music, silence, meaningful ceremonies or activities and we also bring in guest speakers for once-monthly learning talks. After our Gather, we enjoy each other's company and conversation over yummy brunch in the Shine Restaurant.
The Gather itself starts at 11:15 am and goes to 12:30 pm. A donation amount of your choice is greatly appreciated. When you arrive at Shine, head to the back room which is the Gathering Place, and that's where you'll find Sacred House. Seating is provided, or bring a pillow if you like to sit on the floor. Dress is casual and comfortable.
After the Gather we head out into the restaurant to socialize and eat together from Shine's delicious brunch menu. The charge for brunch is based on what you pick from the menu! Shine offers local, organic, holistic comfort food made from the heart, and they also make these amazing, magical non-alcoholic potions that are yummy and good for your soul. They work directly with farmers and host numerous events that support community. Their goal: When you support Shine, you support local community. Here's the link to view Shine's brunch menu, and here's a link to the page on their site that talks about the heart and soul behind their food & drink.
