Mind The Gap

In music we look for the interval between notes; in sculpture the light provides context and dimension. In mindfulness the space between thoughts is an opportunity. Clarity, patience, compassion, and a connection with the spirit can reside in this space.

Join us on March 6th as we explore the meditative element of “minding the gap.”

Service coordinators: Marian Siemens, Steve Lennon
