• Monday Evening Community Sit

    First Congregational Church

    We'll have half an hour of lightly guided meditation, followed by group sharing as we continue our exploration of Getting Stuck. No experience needed, and those with lots of experience also welcome. No registration is required, sessions are free. Although Meetup shows a handful of attendees, this is a long-standing community with over 70 members and over 30 people coming to the Monday sits. For those of you who joined us this past Monday, thank you for your indulgence with writing on an invisible flip chart; my handwriting has never been more precise. It was fascinating to see how the addition of that non-existent tool energized the group's sharing, and how deeply you opened up about our topic of Getting Stuck. This coming Monday the 19th we will continue our exploration of "stuckness" with sharing what you've noticed about it this week. That can be where you're finding its presence in your life, or even those around you. We'll be meeting in our usual (we can call it that now!) space at First Congregational Church, and will talk just a little bit more about our upcoming Town Hall. You can join us at: First Congregational Church 19 Church Road Shrewsbury This is right next to Shrewsbury Common and the Fire Department, you can see a map on this web page: https://fccsm.org/first-visit/ We'll be meeting at our usual time of 7:00 in the evening, at the chapel. The main entrance is off the parking lot at the rear of the building. Pass through two sets of doors, and follow the signs. See you there!
