Tuesday Evenings at Replogle
: Drop-In Sessions

Tired? Stressed? Overworked? Longing for a sense of peace but don’t have time to schedule it? At the Replogle Center we have an answer. Join us for “Tuesday Evenings at Replogle”—a way to drop in whenever you like to get a jolt of healing and spiritual renewal. All faiths are welcome as are all levels of experience (including none at all!). Come as often or as little as works for you—no pressure, no expectations. Life has enough of that already!

Please note that there will be no meditation program on Tuesday, December 27 due to the Christmas holiday.


Sacred Pause

   Tuesdays
   7:458:15 a.m.
   Stone Chapel
   Free and open to all

In the midst of your busy life, take a few minutes on Tuesday morning to find some stillness and experience silence. Take a break from the relentless pace and stress of daily life.

You don't have to be an experienced meditator to attend, and you're free to use the silence of our Sacred Pause in any way you like. We'll have
resources to help you practice if you need help (poetry, readings, inspirational photography), but the format will be simple and open: a greeting, a candle, a bell, twenty minutes of silence.

In the spiritual traditions of the West and the East, meditation is an essential way to make us fully present to God, to ourselves, and to creation. Christian contemplation is attuning ourselves to God's presence by simply being fully conscious in the present moment.

Whether you call it meditation or contemplation, you are welcome to join us for a Sacred Pause.

Sacred Pause is supported by a grant from the Trust for the Meditation Process, committed to supporting contemplative practice as it awakens us to the sacredness of all life and to the inner stillness that reveals God's presence in us.

   7:00–9:00 p.m.

If you have never experienced the power of vibrational healing, you have missed a truly magical experience. Marian Kraus will lead us in inviting the sounds of the gongs to penetrate our bodies, souls, and hearts, promoting a deep sense of healing and well-being. Please bring a blanket and a pillow, as we will be lying on the floor.
