This regular Rolling Ridge series introduces different time-honored contemplative spiritual practices. Including contemplative practices in our daily rhythms helps us open more fully to God/the Divine and encourages receptivity to Love’s invitations. This practice-based series offers guidance in each of the featured spiritual practices, inspires conversations within shared learning, and prompts meaning-filled reflections all in the company of curious others. Whether we are brand new to the featured practices or well-seasoned with them, practicing together enhances connections and evokes fresh experiences for the journey.
