Open Circle

Contemplative Practice @ First Churches and Beyond


All group meetings are cancelled while social distancing is in effect. Join us online Mondays at 9:00 am and Tues-Friday at 1:00 pm.

Open Circle offers opportunities for Contemplative Practice at First Churches of Northampton and other area locations. As we engage in meditation and mindfulness practices drawn from both the Christian and Zen Buddhist traditions--sitting, walking, working, chanting--we seek to open our hearts, draw nearer to the Source, and uncover the innate joy and wisdom that allow us to more fully serve all beings.
