A monthly gathering to explore various meditative, contemplative, and creative practices to explore feelings, deepen our intention, and support our hearts as we contemplate and clarify our role as citizens. Drawing from both traditional and emergent ideas and practices, we grow our sense of belonging and groundedness with joy, gratitude, and radical honesty.
