Putting Down the Stone
This service gives us an opportunity to practice compassion, with two guided meditations, inspired by Buddhist and Christian teachings. For one of them, you are invited to hold onto a hand-sized stone…so please gather one prior to the service. A blunt, heavy, hand-sized replacement is fine. Rev. Stephen draws his accompanying message from his experiences in a Vipassana (Insight) Buddhist meditation retreat, hospice spiritual care, Christian scripture, and his childhood. A frequent preacher with us, he is completing his eighth year as a hospice chaplain and has served as a full-time UU parish minister for eleven years.
Inner Sanctuary & the Art of Remembering Wholeness
How might being in tune with the wholeness of our creative capacity support us during uncertainty? How does deep listening increase our ability to be kind and compassionate while staying open to new possibilities? The creator of Soul Listening Art, a meditative practice of free creative expression, invites us to the Inner Sanctuary
Building Our Belief in Ourselves!
Belief in ourselves as powerful, competent, and valuable is the most powerful interpersonal safety tool we have. Together, we will learn how to take charge of our emotional and physical well being. These life-changing skills can help us and people important to us grow and protect these essential beliefs. Irene van der Zande is the executive director and founder of Kidpower International, a global nonprofit providing proven skills for interpersonal safety, child protection, conflict resolution, advocacy, and self-defense for millions of people of all ages, abilities, and walks of life worldwide since 1989. https://www.kidpower.org/
