Wisdom Mornings

Wisdom isn’t knowing more; it's knowing with more of your being. --Cynthia Bourgeault

Wisdom Mornings, held at First Churches of Northampton, are a chance to engage in a variety of practices designed to help us center ourselves in the present moment, open our hearts to God, and discover a bridge between sitting meditation and our active lives.

Structured as mini-retreats, each Wisdom Morning will include time for silent contemplation (Centering Prayer) as well as such practices as walking meditation, chanting the psalms, Bio-spiritual Focusing (a body-based practice for processing feelings), and work practice/community service. As we move from a foundation of silently sitting together to participating in mindful Work, we begin to bring our mind of wisdom into our daily lives and into the wider world.
