    This week's topic:

    "Personal Vision: Where We're Heading and How We Travel"

    It is important for us to have a personal vision for our lives. What are we doing on this earth? What is our purpose? Where we are heading and how we travel are both important aspects of our life journey.
    This free talk and discussion will follow our regular Wednesday public sitting.

    You are warmly invited to the meditation period starting at 7:00. A separate short "Learn to Meditate" instruction will be available at that time to those who request it. If you're only interested in hearing the talk, please arrive at 7:30. Those interested in only the sitting are welcome to leave at 7:45.  The talk is from 7:45 - 8:30, with tea & cookies afterwards. There is no charge.
