Courageous Conversations, Sunday, January 20, 2019, 12:30pm - 2:00pm, Manse Living Room. The Courageous Conversations Group’s mission is to speak Truth to power through conscious dialogue that will lead to greater diversity and inclusivity within and outside of the church walls. In other words, the aim is to create—from the inside-out--a world that works for everyone. This initiative was started in 2016 by Rev. Sandra Campbell and a small group of thoughtful, committed congregants aiming to create sacred space for people of diverse views to engage in thought-provoking, heart-opening, mind-expanding, and often uncomfortable conversations on topics that are often difficult and controversial. The group believes that only when we are courageous enough to be uncomfortable can we hope to be the change we want to see in the world.  If you are one of those thoughtful, committed people, come join the conversation!

Meets Monthly on the 2nd and 4th Sunday

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead

Mindful Parenting: Practice and Support Parenting can be one of the most challenging roles of our lives, yet few of us walk into it having the inner resources and skill sets it demands. Mindfulness practices can be a powerful source of refuge while managing the challenges of modern-day parenting.

The intention and invitation of the Mindful Parenting: Practice and Support group is to offer a space for parents, grandparents, child care providers and educators to explore a fuller knowing of themselves and their deepest needs while honoring the sovereignty of the children they care about.

This group meets the fourth Thursday of the month.

Monthly session content will include formal meditation practice, presentations of themes within mindful parenting and community discussion.

Suggested Love Offering: $15 per class.

Engaging Mindfulness Meditation Practice Group, Saturday, February 9, 2019, 9:30am - 12:30pm, Classroom C. This is a unique meditation group, in that we also practice dialogue during our time together. This is a unique meditation group, in that we also practice dialogue during our time together. Not “social dialogue” where you may or may not click with the person(s) you speak with, or you might want to have the right thing to say. Meditative dialogue: Between silent meditation and the speed we move and speak of our every day world is a place we can practice meditative dialogue. Meditative dialogue might be explained as a grounded awareness where we can practice using speech, yet what we actually say isn’t important.  What is important is our awareness, what we noticed, what we chose to speak and what we didn’t.  This dialogue has nothing to do with a story we have been telling our friends.  Each moment may be different.  It is about experience.

As the listener, we practice bringing ourselves back to awareness and listening without an agenda.  We are so used to listening to offer advice, reassurance, empathy, teaching, etc…these are all agendas. Listening is one of the greatest gifts we can offer another person, and we cannot fully listen with and agenda. What I have noticed after being in dialogue with others is a comfortable closeness even if I don’t know much about them and after practicing dialogue in a monthly group, I remember again how I want to listen more closely, and how I want to slow down and connect with myself and others while I am speaking.

As with most groups, we practice silent meditation, have a dharma topic, and have time as a group to debrief and ask questions.

If you have any questions feel free to call Lori @ 816-516-2200. Lori is a meditation student, Unity Minister, Nonviolent Communication Trainer, and supports others on their journeys. This group meets monthly on the 2nd Saturday.

All meditation levels welcome. No prior experience necessary. Come experience connection as part of your meditation experience.

Suggested Love Offering $25 (no one turned away for lack of funds)
