This Contemplative Rest practice series is open to those who have taken a Contemplative Rest retreat with M Freeman. Each session offers opportunities for somatic, awe-savoring, guided meditations by M and silent resting-in-awe practice together as well as gentle time for group sharing, connecting, and cherishing the transporting benefit of communal contemplative practice. “All living beings will profit from your relaxation and energy. This is the most basic kind of peace work,” Thich Nhat Hanh writes in How to Relax. And when we practice together? “The energy is amplified,” he writes, “and you will create a powerful collective energy…for your own healing and the healing of the world.” If you have taken a Contemplative Rest retreat, please join us monthly for group practice sessions.

Offered on the first Saturday of each month beginning March 2, 2024.

The session schedule will go something like this:

    • 10:00am | Welcome & group check-in, sharing about practice
    • 10:25 | Dowsing & guided savoring

    • 10:50am  | Communal Rest, 11 minutes

    • about 11:00am | Communal sharing 
    • 11:25-11:30am | Closing
