New Book – Happiness Study Group


Happy to announce our new book: We finish this 6th year, continuing our study of the path to greater happiness and well-being with Loch Kelly's, The Way of Effortless Mindfulness: A Revolutionary Guide for Living an Awakened Life. (our 15th selection) Kelly reports that "Students who consistently practice effortless mindfulness describe a relief from judgmental thinking, a deep sense of safety and well-being, a sense of openness and interconnection, and an ability to welcome  strong emotions with less worry, fear, and shame." Purchase the book from Amazon or from your favorite book source. The Group meets on ZOOM (for now) Tuesdays from 2pm - 4pm. The ZOOM link and study outline will be mailed to group subscribers around the 9th of November and subsequent Mondays. Please email Nadine @ or if you would like to join our study group. I've missed you all and look forward to seeing you on ZOOM on Tuesday, November 8 at 2pm.  Please read the introduction and Chapter 1. Stay tuned for the ZOOM link and Outline…coming soon!

A Celebration of Endings – December Not Church


Email for the ZOOM link. A Celebration of Endings Sunday, December 13 at 10am on Zoom Special time for talking will be added at the end and there are some recommendations for how to do that below. Spiritual Program Is Expanding As the tenth year of Not Church is beginning in January, our spiritual program will be expanding with even more ways to share what we’ve learned, welcoming guest speakers, more inspirations online, and more--you’ll be hearing details soon. Taking what we’ve been doing in our wonderful community online has made it accessible far and wide and that’s creating natural growth and new ideas. Adding special discussion time this month And first, to complete this year we’re going to celebrate what has been. We’ll express appreciation and celebrate all the benefits we receive in coming together in this way. Erin Dunigan feels complete with participation in Not Church so we’re going to take this opportunity to recognize all she’s contributed in the founding and supporting of the community all these years. So please,  think about what you might like to say in the special time at the end—what you’ve gotten from participating in Not Church, what it means to you, thoughts about the future for yourself and the community, and words of appreciation for Erin. TIPS FOR USING ZOOM For the discussion at the end we’ll use the Raise Hands option on Zoom. You’ll find it under “Participants,” at the bottom or top, depending on your device. If you’d like to say something, using ear pods or headphones with a microphone makes it easier to hear and be heard. Please remember to go straight to the heart of what you’d like to say so everyone who’d like to can have a chance. All Not Church events are currently being held on ZOOM.  All are welcome.  Email for the ZOOM link.   .
