What and When?
Holistic Mentor Shannon Scott with the help of Beverly Gonzales will lead a brief time in prayer, guided visualizations, and silent journal reflection to start the day and get you through the rest of the week on Thursday mornings, from 8:30 – 9:00 am.
Research shows that loving-kindness meditation is “dose-dependent”—the more you do, the more powerful the effects. One of the key benefits of loving-kindness meditation is reduced negative emotions like anxiety and depression and increased positive emotions like happiness and joy.

Everyone is invited to log in and participate, whether brand new to meditation or long-time practitioners. Share the event and invite your friends and colleagues!
Leading us is Shannon: Holistic Mentor and RYT1000 (Registered Yoga Teacher with 1000 hours training) with 20 years teaching experience. She taught yoga classes at Our Saviour several years ago and has taught in a variety of other locations. Shannon is also assisting with the church’s Confirmation classes.
We will meet on the Zoom teleconferencing platform at the link below. Let us know if you need help figuring out how to connect with us that way. If there is a desire for some to meet at church and log-in together, please contact Pastor Terri at email@example.com.
Be ready to start a few minutes before 8:30 each morning. Have paper and something to write or draw with for the silent journaling reflection time. Find a physical space to gather for this short service—your desk, outdoors, next to a fireplace, wherever you can sit comfortably for the entire half-hour with as few distractions as possible. You may include any tools to help make this a space of worship and selfcare (candles, essential oils, art) if you like.
The most important thing is that you come and sit still for a bit, to find the Light of Christ within you!
