On Sundays following the service

  • Generally the first Sunday - Drop-In Spiritual Support Group for Being HumanThis popular group was started by Rev. Amanda Aikman to provide a venue for people in any circumstances to have a place to share from the heart in a safe, structured setting.  Using the concept expressed by the Buddha that “Life is suffering”. This group welcomes all human beings! 
    We start by reading an evocative prayer together, and then take some silent time to listen to our hearts.  Then there is a structured sharing time for each person to share as they wish.  This is followed by free conversation that arises from the spirit of the day.  We close by offering the group’s support to each person for whatever their heart’s desire is for the next month.
    All participation is voluntary.  We laugh a lot and sometimes cry.  It is a safe and inclusive group; no specific belief system is required -- just a willingness to listen deeply.
    A love offering is received; suggested donation: $5-10 per session.
  • Third Sunday Potluck - Our monthly potluck is on the third Sunday immediately following the service. Join us, even if you have not brought a dish to share.
