Coming to the Table will offer regularly scheduled conference calls (plans are for twice monthly) focused on meditation as a tool for healing wounds related to race. This call will be facilitated by Helen Knight Farrar.
These calls are designed for everyone who is interested in learning to meditate or who already has an ongoing meditation practice. Part of each call will be a guided meditation focused on helping us rest deeply in the sacred dimensions of our bodies, our speech and our minds as we face racial wounds with open hearts. Following the meditation session, participants will be invited to share, if you wish to share, what we experience during our meditation together.
Because this is a new initiative, the CTTT Meditation Working group will experiment with dates and times for these calls during weekdays, weekday evenings, and on weekends to find times which may appeal to a wide group of people across multiple time zones.
The Working Group hopes you will sign up to participate in any or all of the times you are available as dates/times are announced. If you have not tried meditation, we hope these experiences will give you a tool in your own life to help you navigate difficult waters.
We will be using a combination of meditation practices, some guided by members of our working group, and others pre-recorded that are relevant to the work of CTTT. You can also utilize the many resources listed on the CTTT website in your personal practice (http://comingtothetable.org/groups/working-groups/meditation-working-group/)
Please RSVP here to let us know you plan to join the call… AND/OR to be put on our Meditation Conference Call mailing list even if you can’t make this first call. We look forward to being with you in open hearts dedicated to healing racial wounds.
