Our topic for October is: INSPIRATIONAL EXPLORATIONS

Oneness Wednesdays has been renamed to reflect a change in the orientation of these Wednesday evening events. Inspirational Explorations will feature a variety of sessions organized by a variety of facilitators, including some sessions that may continue for a while on a monthly basis. The aim of these sessions will still be to explore and experience dimensions of spirit, community and conscious living, but from as wide a range of perspectives as possible. In pursuit of this goal, members and friends of the Church of Truth are warmly invited to send in proposals for facilitating a session or a series to any of the IEco- coordinators—addresses below. Inspirational Explorations will begin at 7:15 p.m. (unless otherwise stated), and will be by donation, or free if a donation creates hardship.

Inspirational Explorations on Wednesdays in October will include sessions on dance and politics, spiritual readings, poetry and song, community, and a Hallowe’en party.

Oct 3, at 7:30 Dance for Democracy.   Facilitation: Frances Litman.

Enjoy an inspirational evening of learning, laughter and movement that is guaranteed to leave you feeling lighter, happier and empowered.CreativelyUnited.org founder and community connector Frances Litman will facilitate this fun, free community event that incorporates laughter, art and even dance with knowledge about this fall’s historic referendum and why it’s vital to vote Yes for Proportional Representation.

Oct 10: Spiritual Leanings in Literature.  Facilitation: John Vanden Heuvel

This event invites anyone who cares to share – quotes, sentences, paragraphs and poems, from any style of literature, that have inspired you with its ‘spiritual life insights’. We’ll share, contemplate and discuss our offerings in a ‘light-hearted’ informal way. John Vanden Heuvel will guide us through the evening. All are most welcome, invite friends

Oct 17: Conversing with the Muse: A Poetry and Music Circle.  Facilitation: Chris Bullock, Hendrik de Pagter, Terence Stone.

Poets, songwriters, and lovers of poetry and/or song are all invited to be part of this event. Participants will sit in a circle, and read aloud/perform a poem or song (either their own or someone else’s), say a few words about why it is meaningful to them, and then invite brief comments from anyone who has been inspired by that poem/song. No-one is required to either perform or to comment. And having said that, we should add that creativity might inspire us sometimes to do quite other things, like write a poem together, express by movement, who knows what. Or a volunteer facilitator might invite participants to bring in works on a particular theme. No fixed rules—lots of inspiration (we hope).

Oct 24: Community Circle.  Facilitation: Sanjara Omoniyi.

Our community offers us a wide range for exploration, creativity, self-expression, discussions and much more. Coming together in a circle we can deepen our connection to each other, have fun, foster activities, bring in new ideas or discuss things that have come up and need to be addressed.

If you feel connected to our Community of Conscious Living, we invite you to come and bring your energy, ideas and love to this circle.

Oct 31: Hallowe’en party. Facilitation: Jean Gregson, Pat Miller, and the COT women’s group.

 

Inspirational Explorations in September

 Sept. 5, 12, 19, 26

7:15 pm to 8:30 pm

Everyone Welcome to Drop-In!   Free or By Donation

Our Oneness Wednesdays at CoT are starting up again in September. We begin with a month of Manifesting as Your Divine Self. This is a series of recorded channeled guided meditations by author and spiritual leader Sanaya Roman. You can read up on her at www.orindaben.com.

It will be a great way to affirm and set intention with our Wednesday evening gatherings, and for ourselves, in our everyday life.

We gather at 7:15. The guided meditations this month will begin at 7:30, and last about 30 minutes. Quiet reflection will ensue for at least 5 minutes, followed by discussion and feedback and sharing. Each meditation stands on its own, so there is no need to commit to the entire series.

Our topics will be:

September 5 – Setting your intention, linking with Divine Will, and Manifesting with the seven Great Ones (along seven rays of light)

Sept 12 – Power – Releasing the old, initiating the new.

Sept 19 – Love – Awakening spiritual vision.

Sept 26 – Wisdom – Choosing from infinite Possibilities

upcoming topics (dates to be announced) in this guided meditation set:

Intuition – Creating harmony, Dissolving limitations

Illumination – Transforming your thoughts

Inspiration – Expressing the highest light within you

Perfection – Manifesting the Divine blueprint

Meditation is a way to still the mind, broaden awareness and deepen the connection to self. Coming together in a circle, we create a stronger energetic field which makes the effect of the meditation stronger.

For the next couple of months, we will create a new formula for the Oneness Wednesday’s meditation circle that will help us to deepen the connection to ourselves and to each other. We invite you to come and join the circle and add your energy, your ideas and wishes into this co-creative process.
