"Supper and Soul with a Side of Solidarity" is a Sunday evening program born of people's need for something more than most organized religions offer. Have you been turned away, turned off, disenfranchised, disappointed by what churches offer? Are you unsure whether there is a greater force in our world, and more importantly, whether or not you are among the loved and cherished? Come find us. When you have no idea what you're searching for, but you feel spiritually unfulfilled... Come find us. If you aren't sure you are loved, Come find us. Do you need a safe place to be who you are? No judgment? Come find us. Supper and Soul with a Side of Solidarity is open to anyone who understands, loves or identifies with the LGBTQ+ community
What to expect?
- Supper. Soup, salad, bread. Vegetarian.
- a community prayer - to the Universe, to Maha Kundalini Shakti, to God, to Whomever you deem as the Great Spirit.
- We each pull a quote from the Wisdom Jar, read them and much discussion follows! We never know where it will lead.
- We close with a short, guided meditation
You are welcome to stay and chat, visit, read in the library, or walk the labyrinth.

"Circling" Class for Adults
"Circling" is a ten-session program formed by mystic and religious scholar Jan Phillips to raise each of us to a new level of creativity. Even if you don't believe you have a creative cell in your body! Through activities in a community of like-minded others, your heart may open and you might let go of a burden you've been carrying. Build a community of support and new-found insights over the ten-week period. Because the program depends on the energy formed by the group, we ask that participants commit to all ten sessions. Each group member receives a complimentary notebook with poems, guided activities and blank pages for notes and journalling. This program operates on the Dana concept of generosity; there is no fee. Facilitated by Darla Bair.
Wednesday mornings 10:00 - 11:30 am January 10 - March 21, 2018 (not meeting on Feb 21) Please register for the program so we can prepare your notebook firstname.lastname@example.org
"Balancing" Class for Adults
"Balancing" is a six-session program to find and create balance in your life. Only you know what your soul needs, and we will explore some new ways to feed you and your soul! Setting intentions, fitting self-care into your busy life... it's all about balance. Balance is the third leg of the stool on which a good life rests, joining Respect and Responsibility. Because the program depends on the energy formed by the group, we ask that participants commit to all six sessions. Each group member receives a complimentary notebook with poems, guided activities and blank pages for notes and journalling. This program operates on the Dana concept of generosity; there is no fee. Facilitated by Darla Bair.
Wednesday evenings 7:00 - 8:30 am January 10 - February 14, 2018 Please register for the program so we can prepare your notebook email@example.com
The Calm in the Chaos labyrinth is open to the public for walking meditation. A labyrinth gives us the opportunity to quiet the mind and allow Spirit to speak to us. Our feet always know where to step next - there is no chance of a mistake as with a maze. When you get to the center, pause with George the Grateful, a metal sculpture created by artist John Archer. When you are ready, spiral your way back out of the labyrinth, coming into the world again, renewed, relaxed, whole again. Most people walk in silence so with music playing privately with earbuds. When you come to walk, please leave a text or voice message that you are on the property. 585.494.1795
Christian Women's Retreat
Guest Speaker, Danielle Pfuntner
registration closed - we are full!
Saturday, March 3, 2018 9:00 am - 1:30 pm You plan and carry out all the children's activities and family vacations, and keep everyone else sane and happy. Saturday, March 3, is a step out of that life to focus on only you and your connection to God. Our guest speaker, Danielle Pfuntner, will touch your heart with the story of her personal journey. Reboot your own spiritual energy with new ways to 'hear' scripture. Learn how to use steps from lectio divina to turn your favorite scripture verse into poetry. Illuminate and decorate a page of scripture to frame. Sing together, pray together!
Lunch is included 9:00 - 1:30 pm Please register firstname.lastname@example.org
There is no charge for the program. It is *dana
*dana is a Sanskrit word meaning generosity. Many of our programs are based on the concept that spiritual lessons that were and are offered by the world's greatest spiritual leaders did not come with a monetary fee. Our *dana bowl is inside the front door; if you want to contribute something, we are grateful. If you cannot or choose to not contribute, we want you here anyway. There is no judgment and no expectation. We realize this is unusual in our consumer-based society, but we feel it is the most loving way to operate a spiritual center.
