September Day of Mindfulness Meditation - Thirst

September 16, 2017
Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Another morning and I wake with thirst for the goodness I do not have.
I walk out to the pond and all the way God has given us such beautiful lessons…
Love for the earth and love for you, O God, are having such a long conversation in my heart.
- Mary Oliver

In our country thirst most often is easily quenched; a glass of water nearby, a store shelf piled high with liquids of one kind or another flavored, plain and sparkling. Yet, like Mary Oliver’s thirst for goodness, we may have a thirst for a level of contentment, for wisdom, for well-being and for loving/respectful relationships with family, friends, colleagues and co-workers. And what about God, is there some thirst to be quenched?

We gather monthly as a Mindfulness Community to deepen our understanding and commitment to daily meditation practice. As we awaken to our deeper yearnings, we begin to soften patterns of behavior and thought that prevent us from being water for another’s thirst.
