"Virtual" Awakin Circle @ Lincoln

Sep 22, 2020 05:00 PM
WHAT: Inspired by Awakin Circles started in Silicon Valley in 1999 and by the spirit of community, we gather "virtually" every Tuesday to sit in silence, and share our stories and inspiration in circle (prompted by a short parable or reading sent in advance). These gatherings have no teachers, and no set agendas or proposed beliefs -- they are simply a space to come together to listen to ourselves and to one another so a deeper wisdom may emerge. 

Our format for the evening goes like this:

Please sit in silence at a location safe and comfortable for you.  Short reading, followed by guided meditation will begin at 5:00 PM; the Zoom room will be open starting at 4:00 PM for those who want to meditate longer and in silence before the guided session begins. For first-timers, this primer on meditation may be helpful. Contemplative prayer or other offerings in silence are also welcome. 
5:20PM Circle of sharing of moments or reflections from everyday life for those who feel internally guided or inspired to speak. Please note that those who are moved to share are encouraged to do so; for those who prefer to simply offer the gift of listening while remaining in silence (and pass on the opportunity to share aloud), that is welcome as well.


To join, simply RSVP with your email address below and we'll email you all the logistical information prior to the date.
