Tuesday 13 August, 7.30 – 8.30 pm: Silent meditation

To deepen into silence in the company of others can be a very powerful experience. Give yourself permission to pause – calm your mind, body and spirit, recuperate and boost your vitality, explore deep inner work and develop self awareness.
Led by Grainne Gordon. No meditation experience necessary. All welcome.

Sunday 11 August, 10.30 – 11.30 am: All Shall Be Well

“I am the one whose praise echoes on high.
I adorn all the earth.
I am the breeze that nurtures all things green.
I encourage blossoms to flourish with ripening fruits.
I am led by the spirit to feed the purest streams.
I am the rain coming from the dew
That causes the grasses to laugh with the joy of life.
I call forth tears, the aroma of holy work.
I am the yearning for good.” Hildegard von Bingen

Join us to explore ways of cultivating well-being to enable us to flourish and thrive. Inspired by Hildegard of Bingen’s concepts of ‘viriditas’ or ‘greening’ and ‘discretio’ or ‘discernment’, with a little help from Julian of Norwich, Jesus of Nazareth and Hazrat Inayat Khan.
Led by Laura Dobson. All welcome.

Tuesday 6 August, 7.30 – 8.30 pm: Meditation and mindfulness

In these turbulent times we often seek a means of coming to ourselves, of revealing the natural harmony between our body, thoughts, feelings, and spirit. In this meeting we shall try some simple methods of mindfully observing our inner world and returning to our innate wisdom, so that we can go back to the outer world and act for the good of all.
No previous experience of meditation required.
Led by Mike Rutter. All welcome.

Sunday 4 August, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Prayer

Speaking to our God/Goddess self
In prayer do we seek a voice of comfort and reassurance? Do we try to quieten our minds into a place of peace in order to listen to our higher self? What does prayer mean to us?
Join us as Eve Cunningham leads our explorations
All welcome

Friday 2 August, 7.30 – 9 pm: Earth Spirit Circle – Lughnasadh / Lammas

PLEASE NOTE THIS GATHERING IS NOT AT THE CHURCH! WE WILL MEET OUTSIDE THE CAFE IN LONGFORD PARK – PLEASE BRING SOMETHING TO SIT ON AND WATERPROOFS JUST IN CASE! (If it is pouring down with rain we will retreat to the church for shelter)

Join us for our informal gathering to celebrate Lughnasadh/Lammas, the festival of abundance and the harvest of the first fruits, at which we give thanks for the abundance of the earth and reflect on what we are bringing to fruition in our lives.

We will celebrate with a druid ritual, working with the seasonal energies through meditation, song and sharing our insights. Please feel free to bring poems, songs, stories, circle dances or other offerings to share with the group. After the circle celebration we will share food.
All welcome.
