Giving Thanks
Life can be busy and bustling, but there's always time for a moment to reflect on all the wonders in our beautiful world. Maybe it's a swirl of leaves floating through the crisp autumn wind, a smile from a stranger, or a meal with family and friends. Maybe it's as simple as the comfort of taking your shoes off and wiggling your toes after a long day! Each moment holds gifts, and we are wiser and happier for recognizing them.
Please consider sharing whatever you're thankful for on our Giving Thanks Facebook post.

"Let us try to recognize the precious nature of each day."

Nourishing the Pilgrim Soul
Spiritual Search East and West
Saturdays, 10 - 11 a.m. CT

Nov 25 - Dec 16 (4 Classes)

Discovering Your Inner Self and Your Dharma
Mondays, 7 - 8 p.m. CT

Visiting the Inner Temple
November 30, 7 p.m.
with Richard Smoley

To most people, a temple is a building. But for the esoteric traditions, a temple can be a mental construct-an image in the mind that can be visited any time. This program will explore this tradition. A guided meditation will enable participants to construct an inner temple for themselves.

An Integral Approach to Mindfulness Meditation
December 7, 7 p.m.
with Bill Epperly, PhD

Learn key aspects of Ken Wilber's integral theory and consider new ways of thinking about and practicing mindfulness, including how mindfulness can be practiced across the four quadrants of Wilber's model, and how this creates a more powerful practice.

What Does Salvation Mean in a Multi-Religious World?
December 14, 7 p.m.
with Rev. Dr. Jay Moses

The word "salvation" signals a specifically Christian word, but what does it mean in a world full of religious plurality, when the church does not retain the authority to speak to most people? Enjoy a lively discussion about what it means to be saved, and who this might actually apply to.
Wheaton Workshops
Flower of Life Gong Bath
Friday, December 1, 7 p.m.

While we can't buy happiness and we can't build it, we can cultivate a simple mindfulness practice that leads to sustainable happiness. Bhante Sujatha will teach and guide us with techniques taught by the Buddha 2,500 years ago, including instruction on mindful breathing, concentration techniques, opening the wisdom eye, sitting and walking practice, and group discussion.

with Richard Rudis
