This summer Not Church is offering two uplifting programs to foster introspection and self-awareness.
On July 11th, Martina will lead an introduction to Enneagram…a map for understanding ourselves and others. It helps us understand why people do what they do. You can learn about this powerful personal tool for transformation and meet the participants in the year-round ongoing community Enneagram group.
The program will be held at the Bajamar Clubhouse from 11am – 1pm.
Contact Anna with any questions.
This half-day silent meditation experience is open to beginners who wish to explore meditation and will give regular practitioners an opportunity to deepen their practice.
Nadine and Ron will lead several meditations of various types and lengths including a walking meditation. The program will conclude with a silent potluck lunch and a question and answer period.
The program will be held at Bajamar at 9:30 am to 1 pm. Contact Nadine with any questions.
As always there’s no charge for Not Church regular gatherings or special summer programs. If you feel appreciation and would like to make a contribution…terrific!
We thought we would try something new — a singing meditation together. Here is a recording of Simple Gifts prepared by Eli Gaianoand me. Live with this lovely song, sing along the next few days and let’s all raise our voices together at Poco Cielo on May 12th at 10 am… Lyrics follow and are embedded in the youtube link. See you then!
Lyrics for Simple Gifts by Joseph Brackett (1797- 1882)
‘Tis the gift to be simple
‘Tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
T’will be in the valley of love and delight
When true simplicity is gained
To bow and to bend, we shall not be ashamed
To turn, turn, will be our delight
‘Til by turning, turning, we come round right
Please join us on Mother’s Day…if you’re not with your children or parents. Hope to see you there.
