The songs are sung in a response style and use a few simple names of God or phrases sung in Sanskrit or other sacred languages. These sacred languages which are based upon the ancient science of vibration, are uniquely able to create an atmosphere of rejuvenation, peace, and well-being.

    • DREAMWORK GROUP WITH ALMA SPENCER
      The dreamwork group will meet again on Sunday, December 30th from 2 - 4 p.m..

      Carl Jung believed dreams were direct communications from the unconscious to the conscious, and therefore an opportunity for personal growth. If you're not familiar with dream interpretation, the process is quite simple: learn to remember your dreams and develop your intuition. But since it's often much easier to interpret someone else's dream than your own, we'll share our dreams in a supportive environment to benefit from each others' intuitive insights.

      If you have any recent dreams to share, please type each one up and give it a title. Then bring your written dreams for the group to work on.

      On the 4th Tuesday or Wednesday of the month from 7 - 8:30 p.m. Andrew Harvey once said that if he could take only one book to a deserted island "The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna" would be his choice. The book is written in dialogue form detailing the conversations Ramakrishna had with people that came to see him. It records his moods, his songs, his humor and gives one a sense of what it would be like to be in the presence of a Divine Incarnation. Using wonderful analogies, Ramakrishna discusses some of the most profound spiritual topics and his own spiritual experiences. We will stop often for discussion and sharing. I will have extra copies for everyone.

    • SUNDAY CIRCLE OF SILENCE
      On Sundays from 11 a.m. to noon. Do you feel stressed and unable to find time to just Be? Do you find it difficult to meditate at home with so many distractions? Come join us on Sunday mornings. According to the great mystic Meister Eckhart: "Wherever this Word (of God) is to be heard, it must occur in stillness and Silence. We cannot be of greater service to this Word than through stillness and silence. There we can hear and understand it correctly." Sermon 18. We will begin the hour with 20 minutes of silent meditation. We will then do a 5 minute silent walking meditation followed by another 20 minutes of silence. For more information e-mail jhug@michiana.org.

      On most Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. The practice is done with a DVD and involves very basic movements. We have been using the Spring Forest QiGong method and we all find that it really does enhance your energy. There have been times when we all felt exhausted when we came and left feeling fine.
