Sundays at 1pm we meet for our primary service of the week. We call it an “Interspiritual Gathering,” and in many ways, it is similar to worship services you may have attended at traditional churches. We have readings, sing songs and eastern chant, hear a commentary on our readings, and have what we call a contemplative Communion. In other ways, it’s very different. We do have one reading from the Christian Bible each week, but we pair it with a reading from an eastern spiritual tradition – most often Buddhism or a Hindu teacher such as Ram Dass. Our commentary focuses on real life and how to make progress on the spiritual path. We believe the goal of the spiritual path is awakening or enlightenment, not salvation – because we have no need of salvation. Our services are uplifting, true to real life, and we love to laugh! Refreshments follow!
Mondays from 11:45am to 1:15pm our Monday Noon Mediation offers you the opportunity to join Craig in meditation. Feel free to walk in at any time, and leave when you need to – also, feel free to bring your lunch if you just want to sit quietly and eat! The beverages are on the house!
Wednesdays from 7pm to 8pm we have a Soul Care Group. Our Soul Care Group offers the opportunity to share our lives, our joys and our struggles, our great questions, and our deepest hopes in a safe and nurturing environment. !
On the first Saturday of every month, from 10am to 11:30pm, our World Wisdom Bible Discussion Group uses Rabbi Rami Shapiro’s book of the same name to examine what is often called the primordial tradition – the commonalities of the great religious traditions – in exploring our own beliefs.
On the second Saturday of every month, from 10am to 11:30pm, we have a Kalyanamitra, or “spiritual friends” Group. This group primarily explores the spirituality of active ministry. All are welcome!
