Open Meditation
Thursday evenings from 6:30pm – 7:30 p.m. Open Meditation At Center for Balanced Living You are invited to join us for meditation each week on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 PM. This is a practice for anyone who has a desire to meditate with a group. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced meditator you are welcome. We usually open with a brief reading or quote and then either sit in silence or listen to a guided meditation for 20-30 minutes. This is a drop-in event. You need not commit to being there every week although we do request that you please call the Center (207)[masked] or e-mail Elizabeth Jackson @ [masked] at least 2-hours prior to Meditation time to reserve your spot. That way, if for any reason the group is not meeting, someone will call you back to let you know. This event is free although donations are welcome and accepted. There is a donation tray in the Gathering room.

What we're about

The Abbey of Hope is a virtual community being gathered by graduates of the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine (ChIME). It is being gathered as an interfaith fellowship for postgraduate ChIMErs, the larger ChIME community and is open and welcoming to all. It is a virtual community being gathered within the framework of a cooperation circle within the United Religions Initiative.

Our interfaith calendar identifies religious holidays of many traditions with information about the holidays coupled with reflection.

Our community is physically located in Southern Maine. We currently don’t own any real estate. All activities are done in other people’s real estate. In meetings, retreats, conferences, faith communities, community gatherings, and at cultural events. Information about our programming and activities can be found on the website. Also published here are offerings from our community members.

The Abbey of HOPE is an interfaith community gathered to promote, facilitate and encourage interfaith understanding through educational opportunities, programming, retreats, pilgrimages, missioning, conferences, interfaith gatherings, projects and service. The heart of the Abbey is fellowship and peace building through shared activity, education, experience, service and dialogue. HOPE does not discriminate based on race, color, religion, ability, gender, marital status, belief, age, national origin, or sexual orientation.
