January 13 – March 24, 2015
St. Matthews Episcopal Church
facilitated by Joan Kincade
Contemplative spirituality — and how we live it with the help of meditation — is the subject of a 3-month program starting Tuesday, January 13, 2015 and ending Tuesday, March 24.
Classes start at 4:30 pm and end at 6:15 pm.
Participants will become acquainted with contemplative principles such as
- awakening and being present in the moment
- deepening compassion
- the two paths of necessary suffering and love
- deep silence and spaciousness
- being connected
- Divine emptiness
Sessions will focus on each individual’s experience of these principles physically, mentally and spiritually.
Participants will read The Naked Now by Richard Rohr and learn the principles of mindfulness meditation. Each session will involve meditation, and participants will practice meditation daily at home.
The cost of the twelve sessions is $180, or $15 per session. This can be paid weekly, all at once or in installments. Scholarship aid is always available if you cannot pay the full fee. Simply contact Joan to make arrangements.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Joan Kincade by e-mail or phone as soon as possible since this will be a small group. Please purchase your own book and read pages 9-30 by the first class.
