For many of us, spring has been filled with events ranging from difficult to joyous, yard work, projects, gardening, and other manifestations of the “full catastrophe”. Doing often outweighs being. Summer sitting is a weekly opportunity for letting go of doing and entering silence. A chance to literally “catch your breath”. Come and sit in silence, lightly touch base with your fellow meditation practitioners, and make an intentional transition from day to evening. Space for summer sitting has been generously offered by First Lutheran Church on 9th and Bemidji Ave. Cushions and chairs are available, but feel free to “bring your own”. The door will be open from 5:30 to 5:40, then locked for security. We will sit from 5:40 to 6:10 or 6:20, visit a bit, and be finished promptly at 6:30. Feel free to tell others, and bring friends who have a meditation practice. There is no charge; voluntary donations will be given to the Bemidji Food Shelf. Looking forward to seeing you…Geri
