SACRAMENT and SILENCE
Our Weekly Meditation
WEEKLY MEDITATION GROUP OF PEACE RIVER
We warmly welcome you to our ongoing weekly Meditation Group on Mondayy mornings at 11:00 a.m. Please join us at 6114 Crestwood-Sarasota, FL. Parking is immediately behind the house and you may enter through the patio. You are always welcome--and do bring a friend.
WhY WE GATHER FOR SILENCE TOGETHER...
Although the journey of our spirit towards God is a solitary one, for centuries seekers have realized that the journey is easier if we make it in the company of others. My own personal experience within and outside of the Church is that the teaching of Jesus comes to bear: "Where two or more are gathered together in my name... there I AM in the midst of them."
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
Each meditation group, depending on its members, will have a quality of its own. But there are things you can expect and depend on. We will begin with a 10-15 minute teaching time where a presentation on meditation will be offered. The teaching time will be followed by 30 minutes of silent meditation. After a short break, there will be a closing prayer. Those who wish to remain for conversation are welcome to do so. Come meditate with us. Please check the calendar page for our schedule.
MORE TO COME ...
When the need presents itself to add to our silent meditation group, plans are underway to provide a weekly Guided Meditation time.
During guided meditation, you will be invited to enter into a Scripture story and explore in your mind's eye the sights, sounds, characters and insights. A guided meditation asks you to put yourself into the story as onlooker or paticipant. At the end of a guided meditation, approximately 20 minutes, particpants are invited to share as little or as much as they'd like for the benefit of the others in the group. The group will close with a short prayer time.
