"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!
