Contemplative Practices

Introduction

Are you seeking an escape from the world, an oasis in your crazy life? Are you seeking some quiet? Are you seeking time for yourself or inspiration? Then we invite you to engage in contemplative practices at Robertson-Wesley United Church in Memorial Hall.

contemplative practices setup in Memorial Hall

When you enter Memorial Hall you will find pockets of inspiration that will clear your mind, open your heart, and bring your spirit into connection with the sacred and the world. Throughout Memorial Hall there will be different spaces with different contemplative practices that invite you to meditate, pray, while engaging in some artistic exercises. Drop by anytime between the hours of 7:00–8:30 PM on the designated Sundays. Stay for as long as you would like.

This is a self-directed program with instructions throughout the room to give you some guidance on your journey. This coming program year we will have 7 Sunday evenings each with a different theme. Invite your friends, family and neighbours to enter this oasis and emerge inspired, enlightened, grounded and feeling nourished.
