Be Still and Know. Psalm 46:10

Ecumenical Christ-centered movement and meditation group designed for you to nourish yourself.   Learn a systematic sequence of simple movement, breath and sense withdrawal that naturally steers the mind inward so that you might pass through the clutter of a tense body and mind and enter into what St. Theresa of Avila called ‘the cave of the heart’.  Hear scripture in a whole new way. Practice with others to gain strength. Sense the Presence of the Divine. Leave Refreshed.  Free will donation; Drop-ins welcome.  First Presbyterian Church Chapel, 2 South Main Street, Southampton

Lenten Series - Deep listening  & Scriptural Reflection 2020

For Lent, some churches focus on members growing in spirit by giving something up and others suggest adding something in.   Join Doreen for both – identifying a time-wasting behavior and trading it for a life-giving behavior: DEEP LISTENING.

February 23, March 1, 22, 29 | TIME:  Sunday 6:00 -7:00 pm   

Jesus spent 40 days listening in the wilderness, strengthening his connection to Abba and disconnecting from the temptations of Satan. Despite having been gifted with Grace and forgiveness, we too need to refine our capacity to listen to God and to say ‘no’ to Satan. Effort is still required and Lent, the 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Easter, is a perfect time to do it.  

Learn a systematic technique to quiet the thinking mind, which will develop your capacity to listen and to understand scripture more profoundly.  Then practice it at home and with others at each session. Get inspired to set up a time and space at home for regular practice; explore what gets in the way of home study; how to stay on track and more. The 4 sessions build on each other; attend as many as you can to support yourself.  For more information or questions call Doreen.

Relaxation Techniques to Manage Stress

Learn (or refine) some time-tested tools to “Push the Reset Button” so that you are not on the ever-edge of anxious.  Modern life has the nervous system on alert much of the time, and we need to consciously induce the opposite – the nervous system’s rest and digest mode.  When it is not induced, continuous stress leads to poor decisions, disrupted sleep, chronic low grade illnesses and other dis-ease of body and mind.   Commit an evening to learn some valuable tools that if practiced, with regularity, will improve your daily life and overall outlook.   Even if you know some of these, you will have a chance to practice and develop a plan for yourself going forward.

Wise Habits to Sleep Well

Sleep is a necessary component to a healthy lifestyle, yet it gets disrupted by stress, disturbed by technological stimulation, and shortened by the day’s demands.  Good sleep is an essential need, which becomes very evident when it is not adequate.  If you have occasional or ongoing insomnia, join Doreen to:

  • Learn more about your body and mind in regards to sleep. 

  • Practice simple accessible techniques to support you.

  • Leave with a treasure trove of time-tested ideas, (including a sleep study sheet and other helpful handouts) to improve your sleep life, and thus your whole life.
