Here you find yourself beginning in a quiet circle, letting go of the inner noise of your mind and spirit. A passage of scripture or reading is read, silence follows and you let the words sink in. The passage is read again…words are shared that connect with you; silence again…the reading is read a third time… after another time of silence, people around the circle are invited to share what thoughts, images or words engaged them in the readings and silence. Spirit evokes a response, which is shared. You rise refreshed and challenged. Coffee time follows.
Date: Tuesdays Time: 9:30am – 10:30am Location: Arbutus Sanctuary
Would you like to try Tai Chi? The type of Tai Chi is called Tai Chi Chih which is a simple, gentle form introduced in 1974. There is no cost for the program and you are welcome to bring friends. Wear comfortable clothing, no special gear needed. We begin with a self massage and some stretches then move into the Tai Chi form. You do not have to know the positions.

Living in this world requires much of us. The ebbs and flows of life can leave us longing for a quiet place to simply be with no agenda than to listen to the still, small voice within and to honour our experience of the day that has been. Sacred Pause at Day’s End is an opportunity to gather “together” online. We will ground ourselves with a poem, a reading from a sacred text or an excerpt from a wide body of spiritual literature, and then enter into a brief time of contemplation and meditation. No previous mediation experience is needed, only the desire to enter into a space of quiet and calm. Questions can be directed to Margaret Harper.
Date: Mondays starting Sept 27 Time: 9:30am – 10:30am
Labyrinths have been used since ancient times as symbols of pilgrimage. Mindfully walking a labyrinth can allow us to enter more deeply into our own spiritual journey.
The Virtue Reflection Cards (The Virtues Project™) are set of 100 universal virtues such as compassion, love, and wisdom. Each card contains a beautiful colour picture, a sacred quotation, and a description of the virtue. Upon arrival, you will be invited to ‘pick a virtue’, and to then ‘walk with that virtue’ on our beautiful labyrinth. If you wish, to close out our time, you are invited into a time of sharing your reflection of your morning’s experience. No experience or registration needed. For those who are new to walking the labyrinth, contact Betty or Margaret
