Chaplain Training Class - May 20, 10:00 am - Noon

Prayer is an act of Love.  When we pray together we are opening our hearts to one another.  This opening makes it easier to see the Christ presence in one another as we pray from the consciousness of our divine nature seeing the consciousness of another’s divinity.   Prayer invites us to move beyond the human qualities that invite us to judge our self or another and focus on the Light within each of us.  And we know that what we focus on expands so prayer provides us with an opportunity to put this law into action.  The next chaplain training is May 20 at 10:00 to 12:00 in The Parlor.  We will be exploring listening skills.  
   
Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Nickie Golden

Qi Gong Series - April 19-May 31, 9:00-10:15 am

Alison Born will be teaching the "Heaven and Nature Gong" series through May 31st in the Fellowship Hall or out back, weather permitting.  The last 15 minutes of each class has an optional guided meditation.  The cost is $12 per class.

Certified Qi Gong instructor and licensed acupuncturist, Alison Born, has been teaching classes in the area since 2006 at a wide variety of indoor and outdoor settings. She learned  Sheng Zhen Wuji Yuan Gong, “Qi Gong of Unconditional Love” or “Qi Gong of Universal Oneness” from its creator, Master Li Jun Feng. Its basic premise is that of opening your heart, mind and the channels in your body to connect with the universal Qi of nature – “being one with the flow of all”, so to speak. For more information about Sheng Zhen qi gong or Master Li, please visit: www.shengzhen.org.

The "Heaven and Nature Gong" series (aka "Kuan Yin Standing Qi Gong"). It is comprised of 10 movements, some of which are performed once, while others are practiced multiple times. The movements have poetic names such as, “Lotus Blossom going through the Mountain," and contemplations that are paired with each movement. Alison also plans to teach the 6 healing sounds for organ revitalization. All experience and fitness levels are welcome. If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact Allison at 352-4555 or alison@capefearacupuncture.com.
 

Ongoing Classes and Programs

Meditate

Oasis

Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. Join us for prayer and meditation as we settle down for a brief mid-week break.  Afterwards, Oneness Blessings will be offered.  Everyone is welcome to join us.  Remember, when we take time to stop, calm and rest in the Spirit, we do it not just for ourselves, but for the benefit of all beings!

 

Going Deeper

Thursdays at 7:00 pm. Deepen your connection with the Divine. Spending time in meditation deepens our connection with the God of our Being, reduces stress, and increases our ability to focus our attention.  Scientific research has shown that people who meditate are more creative.  Whatever benefit you are seeking, come find it among like minded people as we spend time in the silence together. Love offering.

Curious Souls - A Spiritual Study Group

 
Sundays, 2:00 pm
“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”    --Albert Einstein
 
Like meditation, real spiritual study is often more effective in a supportive setting--in a group of like-minded seekers. We are a collection of interested, curious souls who intend to encounter and explore authentic spirituality.  Our primary goal is to assimilate spiritual concepts and learn to apply them to our everyday lives. Within the group we are free to express (or not) our own appeal to spiritual processes.
 
Join Jill Lahnstein and Rhonda Limoges on Sundays at 2 pm to study and discuss sacred texts, spiritual poetry, new ideas, and empowering thought--in an open, welcoming environment.
  
May 21, 2 pm
We will be looking at poems by Hafiz.

May 29
Memorial Day weekend--no meeting of Curious Souls

Curious Souls will begin discussing The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan starting on Sunday, June 4th.  Order your book and join us in the parlor!  A few books have been ordered at $10 each.  Contact the church office if you would like to reserve one.

 

A Course in Miracles

Sundays and Wednesdays, 7:00 -8:30 p.m. A Course In Miracles teaches a thought system – a way of seeing and understanding—based on love and oneness with Spirit and with each other, as contrasted with the thought system the world teaches which is based on fear and separation. The Course shows how our human (or ego) minds resists these ideas because of our attachment to our separate bodies.

The group meets on Sunday evenings  in the parlor and in the Uniteen room on Wednesdays. We read the text together and discuss the material. We welcome you to visit to see if this is for you. The book also includes a workbook section made up of daily lessons. For more information contact Kate Martin.
