Thursday evenings at 1st Presbyterian
We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in July and August from 7:00 – 9:00 pm in the fellowship hall. Our format for the first hour is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. For the second hour, we will be watching videotapes of Fr. Thomas Keating’s “Spiritual Journey” series. This series is produced by Contemplative Outreach, Ltd. and describes the method and background of Centering Prayer developed and taught by Thomas Keating, a Cistercian monk at St. Benedict’s Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado.
The topics the series covers are Developing Centering Prayer, Models of the Human Condition, Paradigms of the Spiritual Journey, and Contemplation the Divine Therapy.

July Retreat Day
Saturday, July 27, 2013 8:30 am – 1:00 pm In the Fellowship Hall
Sacred Journey of the Heart
This Saturday we will have two sessions of sitting and walking meditation and for our presentation we will watch a video titled “Sacred Journey of the Heart”. This video features a group of scientists and theologians who explore the Heart and weave together the journey of how science and spirituality are combining to create a new reality. We can learn how to regulate our emotional landscape by choosing to live with heart-based principles. We can discover what science has proven about the power of the heart. And we can connect these scientific findings with the wisdom on the ancestors. Join us for a day of silence and inspiration. A freewill offering will be available.
