Description: This day of prayer will be an opportunity to grow deeper in our understanding and practice of contemplative prayer through spacious solitude and shared wisdom in sacred community. We will begin by exploring the contemplative tradition and why it matters in our world today. You will receive invitations for personal reflection and meditation in inspiring locations around the Temple. There will also be opportunities throughout the day for group spiritual practice, walking the Labyrinth, food and fellowship, and sharing our experiences together.
