I hope you can join us for meditation this week:

Embracing the Winter of Things
Sundays, January 7 - February 25, 9.30am-12pm

This Sunday we launch a new series for January and February: Embracing the Winter of Things. The depths of winter create a context for us to sit still and just be with the passage of the seasons, accepting endings and considering new beginnings.

Join us for meditation and the first in an eight-week series of exploration into how we can find beauty through paying attention to impermanence and the nature of things....
