Ignatius Contemplative Walk

Meeting at 6 pm on Thursdays at St. Bridget’s Villa on the lovely property of Ignatius.  We will start promptly at 6:10 and the exercise will take about an hour.  You don’t have to come every week.  Just come when you can.

There will be some instruction given at the start of each walk.  You will be encouraged to set an intention for the walk; ask a specific question; or pick a word, passage, person, or situation to reflect on.  We will then walk in silence trusting that we will hear, see, or experience what we need while we walk.  At the end there will be some time for debriefing and sharing.  

Often people experience a more peaceful relaxed state or an ability to hear more clearly as the chattering of their mind becomes occupied with walking.  (Maybe a help to those in the thinking triad of the Enneagram)  Maybe you will even experience Metanoia!

If nothing else it is an opportunity to relax in nature, get some exercise and connect with friends. 
Hosted by Dan and Tracey.

Kairos Blanket

KAIROS Blanket Exercise
Sunday, March 18th: 4:00 - 6:00 pm
Location:  St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, 161 Norfolk Street, Guelph

Two Rivers Friends,
We thought it was important to remind people early in the week about the KAIROS Blanket Exercise this coming Sunday. Two Rivers Church is proudly sponsoring the event with the generous support of St. Andrew’s. This event is an ideal opportunity for the Practice of Community with our church membership, with the larger Guelph population, and with Canada’s Indigenous people who have endured a dark history.

Please feel free to extend an invitation to friends and family members. You can copy-and-paste the text below into an email, or send the attached flyer.
******************
Experience the History of Indigenous Peoples in Canada
The Blanket Exercise is based on participatory, popular, education methodology and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Everyone is actively involved as they step onto blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.
