Fall Silent Retreat is back and registration is open
FALL SILENT RETREAT
Our Silent Retreats have become one of our most attended events. Past participants look forward to this day of peace. New participants are often surprised by the feeling of settling and healing they experience at the end of the day.
This year’s Fall Silent retreat will be held Saturday, October 26, 10am – 3pm. Come join us for a day of structured and unstructured meditation, silence and healing.
Because of the popularity of this retreat, it often fills quickly and space is limited.
Registration is now open.

Community Meditation in September
Remember that Community Meditation now meets on the fourth MONDAY of each month instead of the fourth Tuesday. (Remember, it’s the fourth Monday, not the last Monday!)
Community Meditation is free and open to the public. We participate in a different type of meditation each month. No experience is necessary. This is a great place to begin or to strengthen your own meditation practice.
September’s meditation is a guided meditation and will be held, Monday, September 23 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in LaGrange, GA, 7-8pm.
Come join us.

August was a great month. We’ve been winding down the summer, taking some time for ourselves while staying engaged with the community.
On August 9, we were at Hillside Montessori for one their teacher workdays. We introduced ways to implement mindfulness into the classroom and reinforced ways to promote affect regulation, attention, acceptance and so much more, into the curriculum and the school culture. It is always thrilling to work with this school and see the ways they are deeply impacting their students’ lives.
On Saturday, August 10, we were thrilled to celebrate the graduating class of LaGrange College’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. This cohort is near and dear to our hearts. Many of them have been to Community Meditation and have attended our workshops and retreats. This is an amazing group of people and we are excited to see the work they will do and the healing they will support in our world.
