Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all gatherings of Monterey Meditation Group are put on hold. We encourage everyone to join us at 7:00 on Thursdays as we continue to sit together, from a distance, at home.
Thursday evenings at First Presbyterian
We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in March and April (except Maundy Thursday April 9) from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the fellowship hall. Our format is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. Afterwards there is a brief time for announcements and sharing prayer concerns.
March Retreat Day
Saturday March 28, 2020
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
The Poetry of Mindfulness
Poetry in all its beauty and truth has the potential to open our hearts to the mysteries of life and the wondrous workings of the Spirit in our lives. It can deepen our appreciation of the simple but profound truths that are found in our experience. We can soar with the poets who fling themselves into the heart of things. Join us for a morning of meditation and sharing poems of mindfulness, prayer, longing, and the timeless search for wisdom.
Coffee, tea and refreshment will be provided. A freewill offering will be available.

…We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing that. This enables us to do something, and to do it very well. It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, an opportunity for the Lord’s grace to enter and do the rest. We may never see the end results, but that is the difference between the master builder and the worker. We are workers, not master builders; ministers, not messiahs. We are prophets of a future not our own.
– Oscar Romero
