Oneness Deeksha Meditation – First Wednesday – 6:30-8:00 pm

Lida Martin, RScP, & Diane Ruiz, RScP, Ministry Leaders

The Oneness Deeksha ministry meets once a month to provide a mid-week touchstone for centering, meditation, and healing.  Deeksha is a hands-on transfer of divine energy that initiates a profound journey into higher states of consciousness to accelerate an ongoing spiritual awakening in the individual.

Everyone feels a blessing by being together, giving/receiving love.  This ministry blesses the world by cultivating inner peace.  Deeksha supports our individual and planetary awakening.  Our Deeksha meditations also include prayers for the world and loved ones.

Kindness Meditation – Second Wednesday –
6:30-8:00 pm

Peter Frank, RScP, Ministry Leader

Based on the work of Nipun Mehta, the Kindness Meditation Group gathers once a month to sit in silence for an hour and share about “aha” moments from the month’s inspirational reading, or weekly “Act of Kindness Smile Deck Card”.  Afterwards, participants are welcome to enjoy a healthy vegetarian pot-luck meal in a spirit of gratitude and community.

This month’s Kindness Challenge:  Say “It is an honor to be served by you,” or “It is an honor to serve you.”  Say this silently or out loud every time you encounter service.  See how it changes your world view to one of wholeness and Grace.

For more information, check out this video from Nipun Mehta’s TedTalk:  Designing for Generosity.  Also, see this video where Nipun talks about Smile Cards.

Chakra Wisdom with Kris & Meenal Kelkar

Do you have a question about your life, your job, or a relationship situation that keeps recirculating in your head?  The Chakra Wisdom meditation guides you through a process of listening to your body’s seven wisdom centers to receive personalized answers. You do not need to know anything about the chakras to benefit. This meditation can be done in seated stillness or as a movement meditation … your choice!  Bring a pen and a journal to write down your answers.

A brief sharing circle will be held for those who wish to share their experiences.

Drumming Circle – 5th Wednesdays – 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Wednesday, March 25 – Led by Jennifer Merlich

Playing drums in groups generate powerful healing energy for the group and each individual.  “The evocative power of the drum can be compared to the Trinity.  The drum’s frame comes from the trunk of a tree, and that tree has a spirit.  It is not dead wood.  There is also spirit in the animals skin.  If there wasn’t, it would not produce sound.  Those plus the spirit of the person playing become an irresistible force.”  (Babatunde Olatunji)

Jennifer is our talented and passionate guide on this rhythm journey. She uses a simple, efficient method to teach and lead small groups of individuals to quickly play music together and as part of a larger ensemble. Bring your own drums and rattles! Extras drums and rattles provided. No experience necessary. Come with an open heart!
