Northaven Poetry Group
Meets Tuesday Evenings 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 pm
Passage Meditation is the method to memorize great passages from the Bible or the writings of saints and sages and then meditate on one or more of these for 30 minutes a day. Daily life is guided by seven other “disciplines.” Many who have tried other approaches to meditation find that Passage Meditation is very accessible and provides a clear and helpful structure. The approach is compatible with any religious perspective. Our meditation group (called a “satsang”) is religiously and culturally diverse in composition. Group meetings consist of discussion, reading from a book, viewing a DVD lecture, and 30 minutes of silent meditation.
If you love poetry or would like to know more about poetry, come to Northaven's Poetry Group as we explore the human condition and resonate with our own experiences.
We meet on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays, 10:00-11:30 a.m., Room 234.
