Power of Silence Meditation
Thursdays at 6 - 7 p.m.
Are you looking for a way to know the Truth of your being more deeply? Is it hard to get into the practice of being in the Silence by yourself? I invite you to come together with your Spiritual Community in a practice of Silence. We meet weekly to take a deep dive into the Silence together.
We begin with a short meditation to lead us into the Silence. We sit in the Silence together for 45 minutes. In the Silence, our minds and our bodies relax, and we are present for what arises. It is your opportunity to pay attention to our inner nature, the Truth that we are. This time in the Silence is a gift you give to yourself.
This time not only nourishes our spiritual being. Studies show that a committed practice of Silence not only has spiritual benefits, but it also nourishes our physical and emotional wellbeing. Silence helps new brain cells in the hippocampus to grow. These are responsible for the formation of emotions. Silence helps activate the brain, and helps the transfer of information from the short-term memory to long-term memory. Silence is a natural anti-stress remedy. It is vital for our brains, and just what we need to regenerate our tired brains and bodies. It’s what brings our Body, Mind, and Spirit into alignment.
But, here’s the deal: we have to do it! Come join us in the Silence. Drop-ins welcome. Love Offering.

Urantia Book Discussion Group
Wednesdays at 3 p.m. via Conference Call
Because this book is a difficult read, we started with the fourth part - the Life and Teaching of Jesus which is more accessible as most readers have familiarity with this subject. When we have completed this part, we will begin reading from the beginning. Potential participants should not be put off because this appears to be a difficult read. Every effort is made to make the material understandable.
Tuesdays at 10-11:30 a.m. in-person at SLC in the annex
Spiritual Exploration is a discussion group dedicated to helping people discover their unique relationship with the Divine through deep listening and sharing. The group bases their discussion on topics from the book, “The Master Key System, The Complete Original Edition.” It is highly recommended that you purchase the book so you can participate in the conversation more easily. There are extra copies for drop-ins to use while in the meeting. Spiritual Exploration is a safe place for beginning and advanced Truth students to ask questions and share their thoughts and ideas.
All are welcome. Drop in.
Sunday Lunch Connection
Fourth Sundays at 12:45 p.m. at a new location in the community each month
Do you want to get to know more SLC attendees and members? The Sunday Lunch Connection will help you do just that. On the 4th Sunday of each month, we will be going to a nearby restaurant (or maybe the Courtyard or a park for a potluck) to have a bite to eat. It will be perfectly OK to just order a beverage or a snack.
This group is chaired by Reinholdt Brooks and Linda Paoli. Send an RSVP to Linda Paoli@me.com by the Friday prior to the event. This will help us know how many plan to attend so we can make a reservation.
We look forward to getting to know you!
