Opportunities for Spiritual Practice

  Opportunities for Spiritual Practice  
Opportunities for Meditation, Sacred Movement, Prayer

We expect the offerings described below to expand over time.  These offerings are intended to provide opportunities for people to explore their spiritual selves in various ways.  We invite you to come and experience these practices, exploring which of them help to connect you to the Sacred.

Open Chapel Space, Tuesdays from 8:15 pm to 9:15 pm
On Tuesday evenings, after darkness has fallen, we offer our beautiful Chapel, with a labyrinth inlaid into the floor, as a space for contemplation and meditation in whatever way you desire.  You may stay for the whole hour, or come and go during that hour as you are moved to do so.  We invite you to light a candle as you enter the space.  You may sit, stand, walk the labyrinth, do whatever you wish to do in a way that honor's the space of others who may be present.  Recorded contemplative music is played for part of this time, and silence is held for part of this time.  The time is hosted by a facilitator.  We ask that you enter through the main doors of Angus Hall and use the side Chapel entrance (follow the signs!) rather than using the main Chapel entrance to minimize the noise as people enter and leave.

Healing Eucharist, Wednesdays at 12:10 pm
We offer a short (about 30 minutes), informal Eucharist in the Chapel on Wednesdays at 12:10 pm that includes prayers for healing for ourselves, others, and the world, as well as laying on of hands with prayer and anointing with oil.  

Restorative Yoga on the Labyrinth, Thursdays, 6:30 - 8:00 pm, beginning September 7

Starting September 7th, join us Thursday evenings at 6:30 for walking meditations on The Labrynth and a healing Restorative Yin Yoga practice led by Jennifer Jones Schroeder. This meditative yoga class will begin at 6:30 and end at 8. Restorative Yin Yoga is accessible to most everyone, and is essentially prayer in the flesh. Yin and Restorative Yoga can help in lowering blood pressure, reducing stress, increasing flexibility, and elevating feelings of well being. Jennifer offers essential oils for mood enhancement and philosophical perspectives from many traditions. For more information on Jennifer Jones Schroeder, go to jenniferjonesdesigns.com. This class is $20 for non parishioners, $16 for members of the Trinity congregation. 

Morning Prayer, Fridays at 7:00 am
On Friday mornings, a service of Morning Prayer is offered in the Chapel.   This brief service (about 30 minutes) is shared by a small group that gathers to pray this traditional morning prayer offering of the Christian community.
