Kindness meditation and sharing. Every Second Wednesday in Stanley's Hall.
Based on the work of Nipun Mehta, we gather once a month to sit in silence for an hour, do a circle of sharing our "aha" moments from the month's inspirational reading, or weekly Act of Kindness Smile Deck Card, (read them below) and share a healthy vegetarian pot-luck meal in silence. It is simply an offering in the spirit of service and kindness. Love offerings accepted.
