"Splendor" Mandala

Meditation

Inhale,
and God approaches you.
Hold the inhalation,
and God remains with you.
Exhale,
and you approach God.
Hold the exhalation,
and surrender to God.

Interfaith Contemplative Meetings

Every third Sunday of the month, from 6.30pm to 8pm
Location: Currently at Istanbul Cultural Center, 591, N Main Street, Alpharetta, GA 30009

Each month a religiously and culturally diverse group of adults meet to sit in contemplative silence for 20 minutes and then have a spiritual conversation. The topics discussed are ones that affect all seekers or people of faith: surrender, forgiveness, prayer, spiritual practices, compassion, etc. The time together is respectful and honors the tradition and experiences of each person who shares; the rich dialogue that ensues fosters interfaith friendship, understanding and growth. All this goodwill in 90 minutes!  You are always welcome to join us. 

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact Marian Monahan (marian@neshamainterfaithcenter.org) or Kemal Korucu (kkorucu@theatlanticinstitute.org) for the latest information and confirmation of dates - especially as the location or timing may change from time to time, due to unforeseen circumstances.  Thank you for your understanding!

Energy and Spirituality Workshop

Sunday, October 18, 2015, from 3pm - 5pm
Location: TBD

Many spiritual traditions use Light as a metaphor for Divinity or the soul, or what we believe is Divinity or the soul.  For some, it is a direct link to the Divine everywhere.  For others, it is the Divine within.  According to physics, Light is energy and energy cannot be destroyed.  From a spiritual perspective, this provides possible evidence that this Light which flows throughout the body and which cannot be destroyed is the soul that lives on after our bodies cease to be.      

Join us as we learn about energy flow through the body, what blocks the flow and what can free the flow, as it pertains to the healing modalities of Energy Healing and Acupuncture.    

Our program speakers are Anne Alexander, a certified Healing Touch Practitioner as well as a Reiki Master, and Chris Hughes, a Taoist and acupuncturist. Both presenters will bring their respective Christian and Taoist views to the energy work they perform.  

Come experience the work and exercises you can do on your own to free the flow of inner Light!

Investment: $36
