Advent is a season when Christian’s prepare for the coming of the Messiah, Jesus the Christ. Intentional times of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving open our hearts and spirits to God’s presence and action in our lives.
Music and vibration are one of the most ancient and oldest practices used to connect us more deeply with the Holy, in both and non-Christian traditions. Join us as we explore the power of sound and vibration through three prayer practices:
Chanting (from the Christian tradition)
Saturday, December 9 - 9 am - 1 pm
Faciliators: Kelly Lemens & Maria Giordano
Suggested Donation: $35
Drumming (from Native American traditions)
Singing bowl meditation (from non-Christian traditions)
THANK YOU to those who joined us for an engaging and dynamic discussion of what the animals in our lives teach us about spirituality. Thank you to Holly for leading us and teaching us and providing such amazing resources - we all gained a much deeper appreciation for how the Holy is present to us through our furry and non-furry friends! And thanks so much for bringing Sophie along! Her cheery smile and wagging tail brought such joy!
APTB was blessed to have you here!
December 11: Got the Holiday Blues? Why are some of us SAD during the holiday season and winter in general? Join us as we explore the causes of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and learn a few simple ways to ease the blues. We will work on a meditative drawing process known as Neurographic art aimed at bringing some happiness and cheer to those who may not be so happy during this festive season. This process combines psychology and art to help reduce stress and create an overall sense of well-being.
No artistic experience is necessary to participate.
