Events This Month

December 23, 2019 - 7:30pm

We gather twice a month to sit together quietly for 20 minutes, to walk with gentle awareness for seven minutes, and to explore the integration of meditation with ordinary life through reading and sharing. Anyone who senses they would benefit from 20 minutes of silent, non-guided sitting is welcome to join us. We have found that this time of quiet meditation and shared exploration can be deeply nourishing – a time of simply “being” amidst all the “doing” of our lives.

If you have questions, speak with either Beverly Shoenberger or Carol Ring at coffee hour, or contact Beverly at 424-235-9002, openmeadowcoaching@gmail.com  or Carol at 310-310-2539, carol.ring.la@gmail.com

Bill Blake will present an enjoyable dive into the who and what we are. This on-going, twice a month classon the 1st and 3rd Monday is presented to help participants master specific meditation skills. We endeavor to answer the questions Who am I? (attitudes and beliefs) and What am I? (essence or true nature). This class will include meditations that explore participants' spiritual goals. The monthly group meetings will also focus on insights gained throughout the month. It is expected that participants will develop and enjoy a regular meditation practice.

Collage Group with Stan Bemis
 
Do you wish to express yourself creatively in art, and yet may feel inadequate or untrained? Do you yearn to make an artistic statement, yet not sure how? Do you have too many catalogs, magazines, and advertisements, and haven't a clue what to do with them? We welcome you to create your own collages with Stan Bemis!
 
Stan works to bring joy and peace into people's lives through creating art. He has taught many who didn't realize they had creative talent, from all across the world - from California to Palestine/Israel. He welcomes any age, from youths to older adults.
 
The goal of this group is to help foster personal worth and empowerment, entering into that holy place within and having sacred fun. The objectives are 1) to create works of art and 2) create cards for events or celebrations.
