Five Spiritual Practices for Happiness Mindfulness
(ongoing)
Led by Joy Sanjek and Larry Thomas

Every Sunday before worship, 9:30 to 10:15am

Brain imaging and other studies are confirming something that people have known for thousands of years: a regular spiritual practice reliably increases happiness. In this small group we will consider five meditative and other practices that have been shown to promote happiness. The five are: curiosity, generosity, gratitude, reframing, and flexibility.

Group 5:
Practical Practices to Support Mindfulness

(ongoing)
Led by Joy Sanjek

Last Sunday every month February though June 12:15pm (after worship)

Mindfulness is about being aware and present in the moment, not worrying about the future or ruminating about the past. With an emphasis on being accepting and not judgmental we'll pay attention to what habits may get in the way. And we'll  focus on ways to incorporate practices of mindfulness into our already busy lives.

Group 6:
Roots

(time/day determined by group members)
Led by Katie Reimer and Amar Rajwani

We are all born with a longing for connection and belonging.  We can only blossom and flourish, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually, when we make conscious efforts to be curious about each other.  This small group will foster deeper roots in our community by bringing people together to learn each other’s names, life stories, histories, traditions, emotions, personalities, struggles and dreams. Those who engage with this group are asked to make a commitment to the entire 6 weeks of Lent.

The deadline to sign up will be Monday, Feb. 12, after which, this group will be closed.
Co-facilitators will be Katie Reimer (reimerkatie@gmail.com) and Amar Rajwani (amarrajwani@gmail.com). 

Sign up for this group is now closed.
