Circles

Circles Free

There is very little that lends itself better to metaphor than the circle. It is frequently invoked in many cultures and traditions and has been a social institution since our ancestors discovered how to start a fire.

Circles are safe environments for those with a common interest or experience to share and harvest collective wisdom.

Thursdays 5:30p-7:00p Circle of the Day - We bring the topics that are most prominent at the time.

Moving Into Prayer - A Contemplative Yoga Practice $10 per classFrom $8 per visit with 5 Pack of Sessions Classes passPurchase required to enroll

With a meditative approach, you are guided to move gently into each stretch as if it were a hug from the Beloved. Scripture is embodied as we practice stretching with patience and compassion to release expectation and judgements of the stretch (1 Corinthians 13). Focusing on the sensations within your body as each stretch develops, you allow your body to direct the stretch, moving you into stillness, where you find yourself embraced by the Love that is Presence, finding YOU in prayer. (1 John 4:16)
