Soul Rest Tuesdays @ 3:00 PM
Soul Rest is an invitation to "rest" in the Holy. Our time together includes welcome and candle-lighting; listening to an inspirational text; quieting our minds and calming our bodies in silent openness to the Holy for 20 minutes; walking meditatively for 5 minutes; listening to a 2nd reading of the text; returning to silently resting more deeply in the Presence for another 20 minutes; followed by listening a 3rd time to the text. We then share what came up for us - spiritual insights, images, whatever. Our time together lasts 75-90 minutes. All are welcome.
We gather on Zoom.
