Creativity with The Creator
Get your creativity on in the art area this summer.
What? You're not creative?
Fact: we're born creative; many of us get it hammered out of us in youth by others who want "art" done their way. So forget that nonsense.
All the more reason to come dabble. You might be surprised, and there's no competition here. You be you.
Most activities are self-guided. Supplies and instructions are in the art area.
Check out the weekly schedule find out the featured activity.
Chanting the Psalms and Contemplative Sit
Deepen your spirituality by chanting the psalms. Led by Amy Thompson, this features Anglican and Gregorian chants using Psalms, followed by a 20-minute meditative sit (or centering). The next gathering is June 11 at 2 p.m.
Deeper Wisdom of the Enneagram:
Centers of Intelligence and Stances
So, you are familiar with the Enneagram and already know your Enneagram number, or style?
This is just your starting point. A primary gift of Enneagram wisdom is the many layers of self-awareness and knowledge it offers.
On July 22, 9 a.m.-Noon, Kathy and Jim Reiter will lead a workshop to highlight information about the three Centers of Intelligence as well as the three Stances of the Enneagram.
Spirituality of breadmaking:
Buns for the Grill
What could be better than a home-grilled burger this summer? A home-grilled burger on a homemade bun. It's downright spiritual.
Join us on Aug. 5, 10 a.m.-Noon to experience the discipline of kneading the dough, waiting patiently for it to rise, the yeasty smell - and what that might have to do with God in your life.
It's great for individuals, friends or families.
Hot dogs - on homemade buns, of course - will be served at the conclusion of this event, so be sure to register in advance.
IN THE NEWS
The monastery presents itself spiritually as humbly as it does physically. Taking its name from the ancient phrase "via media," it is a picture of moderation between the "high" and "low" churches of the area
“My experience of church is churches are built for extroverts. It’s harder to find those quiet moments in a church’s life. … A place dedicated toward spirituality, meditation, contemplation, I think is necessary.”
On Friday evening, the Middleway Urban Monastery offered people the opportunity to walk for peace, as a form of experiential prayer, for the situation in Ukraine and other parts of the world in chaos.
