Mindfulness Meditation is modeled on the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction clinic at the University of Mass. Medical Center,because this is an excellent model for teaching meditation. However, this particular series of groups is designed to be used as a spirtual pratice, not a psychological or medical treatment. Mindfulness Meditation program does not constitute a psychological treatment, and our relationship is not defined as a doctor-patient relationship. The program will run for nine sessions. Eight of the sessions are 120 min. long, and one session is 6 hrs. long for a total of 22 hours. Group sessions will be held on Monday evenings from 7-9 p.m., with the exception of the six-hour session that will be held on a Saturday. Missing any session is highly discouraged since new material will be presented at each group meeting. Furthermore, it is important for the continuity of the group that you attend all the sessions, if at all possible. Finally it is imperative that you not miss out on the long session. It is important to approach the program with an open mind and avoid the inclination to compare what you will be learning with other techiques or practices you have experineced. Simply let the experience be what it is. The program is difficult and requires a great deal of effort for some people. Participants should expect to spend about one hour heach day on homework (practicing meditation, yoga etc.) during the length of the course. In retrun the program hold great potential for lifestyles transformation. Feel free to contact Jeff Harrison at email@example.com

Lenten Program |
The Lenten Program will be a reflection on the Writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Bonhoeffer was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian and founding member of the Confessing Church. His writings on Christianity's role in the secular world have become widely influential, and many have labeled his book "The Cost of Discipleship" a modern classic. Apart from his theological writings, Bonhoeffer became known for his staunch resistance to the Nazi dictatorship . He opposed Hitler's euthanasia program and genocidal persecution of the Jews. He was also involved in plans to assassinate Adolf Hitler. He was arrested in April 1943 by the Gestapo and executed by hanging in April 1945 just 23 days before the German's surrender.

Christian Education -Movement with Matt Hedrick from the YMCA (cha)|
Our series on Spiritual Practices and Prayer continues with Matt Hedrick. Communion with God comes in many forms, and one of the most intimate can be the way we interact with our own bodies. Because heavy labor has been removed from our every day tasks, we tend to lose touch with our own body mechanics. Matt (a personal trainer from the Central Bucks Family YMCA) will lead us on a discussion of simple things we can do that can improve the connection we have to our own body. In this discussion we will learn how to reset our bodies and the ways we move to original design and function. We will discuss how our bodies are supposed to move and why we often have chronic pain in our backs, knees, necks, etc. and how proper movement can help alleviate pain an discomfort. From day to day things such as walking up and down stairs and standing up from a chair to exercising and fitness. In returning our physical nature back to its original function, we are engaging in a form of prayer that is not always easily recognized. We are giving thanks to the Lord for our bodies which are masterpieces in design by maintaining our physical integrity.

Christian Education -Icons and Prayer (cha)|
Byzantine icons capture the richness of the mystical life of Eastern Christianity. After many centuries of isolation, western Cristians are slowly finding their way back to the wellsprings of Christianity on the East. They are drawn to Byzantine icons, even though they may find them strange. Knowing that they are on unfamiliar soil, they wonder what the correct approach to an icon might be, ". I will be bringing part of my collection of Russian icons which my Great Aunt collected in Paris in about 1918 . Inez Bring and I will be sharing and explaining how the Eastern church treasures these wonder images
