Mindful Practices

In 1953 Krishnamurti is noted as saying “Conventional education makes independent thinking extremely difficult.”  But the freedom to think independently and approach life fresh each day is a privilege that eludes many.  If you commit to a single mindful exercise every day you will experience a different sense of being. Taking one day at a time, one moment at a time, step into our Mindful Meeting Place every Wednesday and feel the difference.

Just as one prepares the soil for planting seeds, one needs to prepare the mind and body for meditation.  This course does just that.  Mind and body are gently cultivated for spiritual growth and development, regardless of where you are on your journey.  Join the group every Wednesday and experience the renewal.
