Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer a sacred study of Gnostic scriptures (currently studying the Gospel of the Beloved Companion, Mary Magdalene) Centering Prayer is  a silent meditation practice taught weekly on Wednesday mornings 10-11 am "The night is dark. Let our fears of the darkness of the world and of our own lives rest in you. The night is quiet. Let the quietness of God’s peace enfold us, all dear to us, and all who have no peace." ~ A New Zealand Prayer Book

Gnosticism comes from 'gnosis' a Greek word meaning knowledge, but not rational knowledge, rather an intuitive and inner knowing. We are studying the newly found Christian Gnostic scriptures that enable us reclaim and study the profound teachings of Jesus without the trappings of the institutional madness of some Christian theology and history that many are allergic to. The Bible has been taken literally which renders it irrelevant. It is past time to welcome the symbolic metaphoric teachings of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Many Gnostic's honored Mary Magdalene and female religious leadership and the divine feminine, using many female names, metaphors and stories for the divine. The Gnostic valued visions and union with the divine, both which are desperately needed in our world. Join us this fall as we study Gnostic scriptures including, The Gospel of the Beloved Companion, The Pistis Sophia, The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, and more. Gnostic's of any different traditions share a lack of focus on human sin but instead teach the paths of liberation from our unconsciousness through spiritual practice.

Dream, then, wherever you may be, I am the God/dess of the Dream, said she, And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be, And I'll lead you all in the Dream, said she. Dream then and I’ll leap high; I am the life that’ll never, never die; I’ll live in you, if you’ll live in me—I am the God/des of the Dream said She.  Dance, then, wherever you may be, I am the God/dess of the Dance, said she, And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be, And I'll lead you all in the Dance, said she. Dance then and I’ll leap high; I am the life that’ll never, never die; I’ll live in you, if you’ll live in me—I am the God/des of the Dance said She. Lyrics by Sydney Bertram Carter and adapted by Bonnie Tarwater Many of Carl Jung's ideas came from his study of Gnosticism. As we honor our dreams as spiritual practice we experience liberation from our ignorance about ourselves as we experience divinity within us and its connection to the divine of the cosmos. Our highest self connects to God/dess and we are gifted with great wisdom about our own lives as we honor our dreams, but we always ask what is the dream coming to give to all of us, for the dreams do not come for one individual but for everyone and all life forms. Dreams as night visions and day visions have been left out too often in our mechanical age of industrialization and technologies. Join our dream sharing as spiritual practice in groups, worship and in individual sessions. Prayer Mother/Father God who is within us, we celebrate your many names. Your wisdom come, your will be done, unfolding from the depths within us. Each day you give us all that we need. You remind us of our limits and we let go. You support us in our power and we act with courage. For you are the dwelling place within us, the empowerment around us, and the celebration among us, now and forever. Amen  by Sister Miriam Therese Winters
