Singing Meditation

On Thursday November 6th, 7:15, join our Affiliate Minister, Rev. Maddie Sifantus, who will lead Singing Meditation, which is a contemplative hour combining sound with short periods of silence.

This is not about performance for an audience, but rather the blending of voices in simple song and chant interspersed with meditation. Songs will be eclectic and come from a number of spiritual paths including Unitarian Universalist, Taize, earth based, and world sources. Join in this spiritual practice which is suitable for beginners as well as experienced singers and/or meditators. This group is open to all.
