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.
Tom Grimshaw will lead a service which encourages us to think about the question posed by the mystic Rumi, “If this me is not I, then who am I? If I am not the one who speaks, then who does? If this me is only a robe, then who is the one I am covering?” All welcome.
Our service will concentrate on gratitude.
Some of us who celebrate the wheel of the year believe that this is a time in the year when the veil between the physical and spiritual world is at its thinnest; a time when we can reach through the veil that separates these worlds in our thoughts and in our memories, and thank the departed for the love we received from them.
If it feels appropriate to you, please bring a photograph of a person or persons you have lost whose love you are grateful for; who brought comfort, joy and loving energy into your life whilst they were alive.
Led by Eve Cunningham. All welcome.
The third Sunday in October is the Unitarian day of prayer for peace, when Unitarians around the country gather to explore how we can contribute to a more peaceful world. Join us as we open our hearts to peace through prayer, meditation and song.
Led by Hilary Bichovsky. All welcome.
This meditation session is designed to help you connect with your creative nature. We were designed to be the true expression of ourselves, in divine light and filled with the love of God. This is something that we may struggle to connect with and release. During the session you will be able to build on your confidence to express through art. Taken through prayer and a guided meditation, you will be able to clear your mind and open up to creativity. This is not a form of therapy but an opportunity to be inspired by the divine.
In preparation for our anniversary and new members welcome service on Sunday 14 October, we will be holding three discussion group sessions on Tuesday evenings for those interested in joining us. We will discuss Unitarianism in general, membership of Chorlton Unitarians and our personal spiritual journeys. This evening’s session will focus on how our beliefs influence our lives and what the Unitarian Church means to us.
Existing members also welcome. Led by Laura Dobson.
