Dwelling in the Word to meet on Thursday at 4PM 

This drop-in group is changing its meeting day from Saturday to Thursday starting August 17.  There will be no gatherings before then. We will continue to meet at Robin Hood Park.

Dwelling in the Word is a way of reading the scriptures whereby participants gradually let go of their own agenda and open themselves to what God wants to say to them.  This way of praying the scriptures has been a fruitful source of growing in relationship with Christ.  For more information contact Linda LeBreux at [email protected] or 508 243-3144

Mindfulness Meditation Group now meeting

They are a small group of people, who value mindfulness meditation and mindful living.  They meet once weekly for an hour during which we practice sitting meditation followed by discussion or reading on mindfulness topics.

The group is suitable for those beginning meditation, as well as for experienced practitioners.  Group members possess and respect diverse beliefs, while they support their common commitment to mindfulness practices shown to nurture healthy and compassionate living.

By design, their meetings are not directed by a designated teacher.  Their goal of providing mutual support is accomplished through a shared leadership.

If you are interested in group meditation and companionable discussion of all things mindful, you are invited to attend the group.

For more information contact Pat Lavin at [email protected] (423- 280- 6303) or Cathleen Reid at cathleenreid @gmail.com
