Breaking Open the God-Box: Guided Meditation for Expanding Your Experience of the Divine

Saturday, 11:30am | Youth

Join author, teacher, and “EcoPreacher” Leah Schade for a guided meditation to creatively engage your imagination and connect with God in expansive ways. This session will begin with breathing exercises and mantras for centering, and then lead participants in a guided meditation to experience the presence of God through Creation, and push beyond traditional male-gendered imagery. Time for group discussion and reflection will help us grow even further in our spiritual journeys.
