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.

-- Krishnamacharya

Interfaith Contemplative Meetings

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

Every fourth Sunday of the month, from 6.30pm to 8pm
Location:  The Vedanta Center of Atlanta, 2331 Brockett Road, Tucker 30084

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 THIRD SUNDAY GROUP IN ALPHARETTA, please contact Marian Monahan (marian@neshamainterfaithcenter.org) or Kemal Korucu (kkorucu@theatlanticinstitute.org).

Location: The Ignatius House Retreat Center, 6700 Riverside Drive NW, Atlanta GA 30328

 “Your listening has a major impact on the quality of your relationships, your ability to make good decisions, and your income potential;in fact, your listening has the potential to change the world.” - Jay Perry

The Listening Games are global, multi-faceted, playfully serious exercises that open ears, eyes, minds and hearts and promote human connection. The games challenge players to transform their limited, binary listening habits (understand/don’t understand, agree/disagree, want-to-hear/don’t-want-to-hear) into full spectrum, fulfilling and fully energizing experiences.  ARE YOU READY TO PLAY?

Join Compassionate Atlanta at the Ignatius House Retreat Center on Thursday, December 8, from 9.30am to 12.30pm or 6pm - 9pm for this creative and inspirational program.  To find out more information and to register, go to www.thelisteninggames.com
