In the second Sunday of each month, after services and a soup lunch, we invite an hour of shared spiritual practice at 1:30. Over time we sample practices that focus our attention and intention, that call us to be present and undivided, practices like meditation, drumming, altered-book poetry, dancing, Lectio Divina, body prayers, mandala making, heart fluency, listening to music, labyrinth walking, a prayer bead practice…

This month Tom Wilson offers a hands-on, body-centered practice he draw upon to  deal with an issue or situation.

Based on groundbreaking research conducted at the University of Chicago, the focusing technique has gained widespread popularity and scholarly acclaim. It consists of six easy-to-master steps that identify and change the way thoughts and emotions are held within the body.

Focusing can be done virtually anywhere, at any time, and an entire “session” can take no longer than ten minutes, but its effects can be felt immediately–in the relief of bodily tension and psychological stress, as well as in dramatic shifts in understanding and insight.

Join Tom at 1:30 on December 8 at UUCM
