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.

The Tarot, it is said, is a symbolic picture of the universe in its many layers, from material to the spiritual and beyond. Currently, the Tarot has as its basis the mystical Jewish Qabalah, drawing into it various Medieval and Renaissance systems such as astrology, alchemy, numerology, sacred geometry and mathematics, world mythology, Hermeticism, Rosicrucianism, and even Freemasonry. In modern times, it acquired Jungian psychological commentary as well.

The Tarot itself is a fascinating, intricate system of interconnecting pictorial symbolism that is meant to catalyze helpful transformations within ourselves and our psyches, affecting not just behaviors, but perhaps even granting serendipitous opportunities.

Jonathan Quant has been a practitioner of Tarot meditation for over 20 years and is eager to introduce you to Tarot meditation. Whether you are new to Tarot, or believe you know much… you will certainly gain fresh insights.

Open Meditation Wellsprings: Wednesdays and Fridays - Online

These are drop-in groups. You are welcome to join us when it feels right to you.  If you come in late or need to leave early, just do so quietly. These are exceptional times, and we trust each person to use the group in the way that fits their need. 

We listen to brief readings, sit together quietly for twenty minutes, journal and share with each other what's on our hearts. This time of quiet meditation and sharing can help sustain and ground us during these difficult days - supporting us to pause and rest in our embodied experience, as it is. We simply sit together in our shared humanity. We call off the struggle to become other than we are.  

NEW:  We meet every Wednesday and Friday afternoon from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

Taking this time for quiet meditation and sharing in the intimacy of having sat in silence together can help sustain and ground us during these difficult days.

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.
