Joy and Giving Thanks

Facilitated by Tasha Paley.
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we will gather in a virtual circle to reflect on and share what gives us joy, sustains, and inspires us. To honor Native American Heritage Month (November) we will also reflect on our relationship to the natural world, inspired by the Native American practice of giving thanks every day, all year long, for the gift of being part of this Earth. Colloquies/Community Reflective Circles include personal reflection, sharing, music, and readings related to the theme.

To join us, please RSVP at:

Issues and Action Discussion Circle
Nov 29 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

The Issues and Actions Circle discusses issues of the day from the news, platform or individual interests for the purpose of expressing our thoughts and feelings, learning from others and arriving at constructive activities that might benefit the situation. Participants decide on the topic at the start of the meeting and are encouraged to present their opinions and respond to those of others. The intent is to ground our principles and values in the actual problems of our community, country, and world. The meeting begins at 4pmpm, Sundays.

Accessible Yoga

A class designed for seniors and those with limited mobility but anyone will benefit from this hour. You won’t need a mat, only a sturdy chair. You will learn simple but effective meditation and breathing techniques that you can do at home to reduce anxiety and breathe more freely. You will also be guided through gentle movements to release tension in the muscles supporting the spine and shoulders as well as some balance and strengthening exercises using the support of the chair for safety and stability. Everything in this class is optional so you can do as little or as much as you like. You will leave breathing easier and feeling calmer and more at home in your body. Yoga can help to reduce depression, increase oxygenation and circulation in the body and improve sleep. No prior experience is needed. All ages and abilities are welcome.
