February 3: A special guided meditation will be held on Friday, February 3 from 6:30-9:30pm. During this meditation the congregation will be led by the service reader through the practice of the various meditation techniques. Select devotional readings and chants will also be chosen for this service to allow participants to go deeper into meditation. If you are looking for a bit more focus in your group meditations at the Center, this may be just the thing.
