Mindfulness Meditation takes place from 10:05 to 10:45 a.m. every Sunday in the Centering Room – or, if the weather is suitable, outside around the Fire Circle. On fourth Sundays throughout the year, Mindfulness Meditation takes place at the Fire Circle whatever the weather (unless it is raining). 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.
