Meditation

“Be still and know that I am God.”
(Psalm 46:10)

 

Are you interested in learning how to quiet your mind and how to become more centered in your daily life?

“Centering Prayer Meditation is a simple method of meditation, traditionally called contemplative prayer in Christianity. Contemplative Prayer is the opening of mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. The practice can offer a way to the rest in divine, calm and clarity to these hectic and pressure of daily life.”

We invite you to join one of our regular weekly group  Meditation Practice Sessions, held on Tuesday mornings and Friday evenings. All are free. Beginners are welcome!

We also have introductory meditation workshops, held every other month. All are welcome to dip their toe into the still waters.

Meditation Group Practice Meetings

These are free sessions are held in a group environment conducive to further enhancing your meditation skills. Newcomers are welcome as well as more experienced meditators.

The format typically consists of  two 20 minute meditation sessions broken by a brief 5 minute walking meditation and followed by a 15 minute group discussion.  Beginners are welcome (or try the introductory workshop first) as well as more experienced meditators.

Beginners are welcome as well as more experienced meditators.   You do not need to be a church member to join us; many regular participants are not.

Two days are available. Both groups meet in Rooms 7/8.

  • Tuesday morning at 9:30 am
  • Friday evening at 7 pm.

Be sure to check the church calendar in case there’s a temporary schedule change.

Please call the church office at (510) 490-0200, or contact Pastor Hee Soon at pastor@firstchurchfremont.org if you have any questions.

Meditation Resources

These meditation resource links have been put together for the use of students in the workshops and group practice meetings.  Most were suggested or written by our attendees.
