Other Programs and Activities

9 to 10 a.m. – Forum Adult Discussion – Lower Level, Forum Room/Library

Allen Hjelmfelt will present his annual soft and easy Independence Day Weekend program guaranteed not to have exploding fireworks. Forum information.

10:05 to 10:30 a.m. – Mindfulness Meditation – Lower Level, Centering Room

Mindfulness Meditation takes place from 10:05 to 10:35 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room – except on fourth Sundays when the group sits outside around the fire circle. Meditators of all levels of experience are welcome.  This is mainly silent meditation with some instruction, if needed, and with brief selected readings from eminent teachers. Our hope is to build a group of UU members committed to regular meditation practice. Email Peter Holmes for more information.
