YOU’RE IN FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL
Solitude and Compassion meditation will be facilitated by Colleen, based on the book by Gus Gordon. Different compassion exercises and styles of mindfulness and meditation will be offered each week.
Each session will open with an exercise of settling in and easing into awareness, and close with prayers of loving-kindness, forgiveness, letting go (casting our cares upon God), or similar themes.
Participants are welcomed and encouraged to express interests in specific styles of meditation and/or contemplative prayer, to be integrated.
