First Sunday Centering Practices

October 3, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:15 am

1st Sunday of the month – 9 a.m.

Join us as we share and learn practices that nourish us on our faith journeys. Come along on the journey to learn and practice new (and very, very old) ways to celebrate the Divine and deepen your spiritual connection. Sessions will introduce different practices such as the Serenity prayer, forgiveness, befriending our inner critic, Advent yoga, the examen and visio divina. Learn more about this offering.

We will meet simultaneously in-person and via Zoom.

Contact Amy Kennedy with questions at amy@fumc-a2.org.

Centering Practices: My Grandmother’s Hands
Sunday, Oct. 3, 9-10 a.m. in Calkins Hall or on Zoom

Trauma, Race and Our Hearts and Bodies: My Grandmother’s Hands

Have you ever considered that only a fraction of white supremacy exists in the mind? In the book My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies, Resmaa Menaken tells us that racial trauma lies primarily in our bodies; white and black bodies, as well as police bodies. Join Shonagh Taruza, Elaine Shaw, and Lisa Hesse on Thursdays as they lead us through experiential and body-based practices that explore racialized trauma. Also, join Centering Practices in October and November for a deeper dive into these practices. This class will be meeting both in person at FUMC (Calkins Hall) and on Zoom; if you attend in person, please be prepared to wear a mask.

Join the Sunday Zoom meeting here.
