Begins: Friday, April 21st, 2023 Ends: Wednesday, May 31st, 2023
Daily: 7:00 am – 7:30 am
You've no doubt heard of the countless health benefits of meditation and prayer. Science is beginning to prove what spiritual practitioners have always known: that slowing down and centering ourselves on The Holy can increase our health and wellbeing from the inside out! However, many people feel they don't know how to start, or that meditation seems like something they just can't do, but what we fail to realize is that we've been taught the wrong things about meditation, and that even seasoned practitioners need community and guidance to take their practice to the next level. This 40-day class will give you tools, community, and inspiration to begin or strengthen your spiritual practice.
Friday, April 21st - Tuesday, May 30th
Each week we'll use a different theme to draw you deeper into the contemplative space known as "The Cloud of Unknowing." We'll pull from mystic texts, bodily prayers, indigenous practice, music, and nature to explore this holy space. Both the novice and the seasoned practitioner will find something new on this path.
The first two classes will be an introduction to meditation, and our first gathering will be a special yoga and meditation day, held as a hybrid event at St. Christopher's Church at 2:00 PM (EDT) (also broadcast on Zoom), which will introduce you to the different moving meditation techniques.
Following that, we'll meet on Zoom every day for a total of 40 days from 7:00 AM - 7:30 AM (EDT) to have a brief talk on a topic/technique in meditation and then sit together in prayer for 20 minutes. If you cannot make this time, no worries! A recording will be uploaded for you to the Hive Membership area so you can establish your practice at a time that feels right to you.
We hope you will join us for this transformative 40-day journey as we enter the cloud together.
