We are happy to announce that our weekly 3-hour meditations on Saturdays will now be preceded by group practice of the Energization Exercises. Practicing them prior to meditation is a great help in entering a calm, interiorized state of awareness. Please plan to arrive by 5:40 p.m. and we will practice outside in the parking lot if the weather permits, otherwise in the social room. On Saturdays when we have long 6-hour meditations, we will always have a break at 5:30pm during which group Energization Exercises will be practiced at 5:40pm.

The subject for today’s service is “The Oneness of Religion.”
