BUDDHIST MINDFULLNESS &
Bringing together meditation and contemplation techniques which come from both the Christian and Buddhist traditions, our small Christian Prayer and Buddhist Mindfulness group meets once a month under the leadership of Judith Rees-Thomas, Mark Boyter, and Rev. Gary Paterson. Judith brings with her a long practice of Christian Prayer and Meditation in the tradition of Jon Kabot-Zin; Mark brings his knowledge of both Zen and Vipassana Buddhist practice; Gary brings influences of the Taize community, as well as a more formal, Christian grounding. Practice includes sitting meditation, visualization meditation, walking meditation, Taize singing and on occasion chanting. Previous meditation experience is not needed, and newcomers are always welcome. For those that do come from a meditation tradition, please feel free to bring along your meditation cushion or bench.
WALKING THE LABYRINTH
This is an ancient meditation/prayer practice, one that became very popular in Europe when pilgrimages to the Holy Land were no longer possible. Instead, folk would travel to cathedrals and holy sites in Europe … and often there was a Labyrinth, marked in the floor of a particular cathedral, a pattern which circled round and round, finally bringing the walker into the middle of a circle, and then out again. Chartres became the best known of these locations.
There is a Labyrinth at our neighboring Anglican church, St. Paul's. We have been able to reserve the Labyrinth for St. Andrew's-Wesley on the third Thursday of each month. We will gather at St. Paul's, at 7 p.m.; there will be some words of explanation and introduction, which will vary, depending on the experience of those who gather.
- When: third Monday of each month
- Time: 7:00pm
- Where: St. Paul's Anglican Church, corner of Jervis and Pendrell
- Cost: By donation on the specific evening (to St Paul's)
