Mindfulness Meditation

Carol Arnold, left, and Ellen Thomas checked out the new fire circle on Nov. 1, 2015.

Mindfulness Meditation takes place from 10:05 to 10:45 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room or the Schweitzer classroom – or, if the weather is suitable, outside around the Fire Circle. On fourth Sundays throughout the year, Mindfulness Meditation takes place at the Fire Circle whatever the weather (unless it is raining).

There will be a fire for the outdoor sessions if it is cold.

Meditators of all levels of experience are welcome.  This will be mainly silent meditation with some instruction, if needed, and with brief selected readings from eminent teachers. We are hoping to build a group of UU members committed to regular meditation practice.

The mindfulness meditation group was formerly known as “Meditation in Nature” and until November 2015 met at the Gans Creek Wildlife Area once a month on third Sundays. Outdoor gatherings then moved to the new fire circle behind the church.

Weekly mindfulness meditation sessions began in February 2016.
