Christian Meditation @ Family Medical Centers

“The all-important aim of Christian Meditation is to allow God's mysterious presence within us to become more and more not only a reality, but the reality which gives meaning, shape and purpose to everything we do, to everything we are. " John Main, OSB

The doors open at 6:00 pm and the Meditation starts promptly at 6:30 pm. We start the meditation saying The Lord's Prayer, followed by a reading or short talk from the works of Fr. John Main, Fr. Laurence Freeman, Fr. Thomas Keating or Fr. Richard Rohr followed by a 20 minute Silent Meditation. The meditation ends with The Lord's Prayer. There is time for comments from the group at the end and we are usually out by 7:00 pm.

The entrance and parking lot is behind the building. Make a left (or right) onto Powell Place and then make your first or second left into the large parking lot. Enter through the main door under the long awning. Suite 101 is the first door on the left.
