Introduction to Mindfulness

Mondays, Noon - 1 p.m. (Sept. 8- Oct. 6)
Tuesdays, 5 - 6 p.m. (Sept. 11 - Oct. 9)

Are you seeking ways to be more present and less anxious? Would you like to cultivate positive emotions, such as compassion and patience, in your life? Research today is demonstrating we can learn to live with more balance through simple daily meditation practice. These five sessions introduce the science, spirit and practice of "mindfulness". Attendance at all five sessions is recommended for the greatest benefit. All are welcome - beginners and persons with meditation experience.

postChristian: What's Left? Can We Fix It? Do We Care? with Christian Piatt

Progressive Christian author Christian Piatt will be discussing his new book postChristian: What's Left? Can We Fix It? Do We Care? The influence of Christianity is changing dramatically in the western world. We are an increasingly “post-Christian,” culture, in that Christianity no longer is the dominant value system at the center of our cultural identity. How did we get here, and what can we do about it? Should the institutional church be saved? Does the world really need the church? Christian Piatt walks through his “Seven Scandals of Christianity” and “Seven Christ-Like Virtues” in an attempt to help people stop being more Christian and start being more Christ-like.

8 -9 p.m.

For Hindus, Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes.
