Quiet Day @ StJ @ St. James' Episcopal Church | Fremont | California | United States

Would you like to take a break for just one day to step out of the busyness of life? This day in Lent offers you a chance to rest, reflect, meditate and pray. This day will include talks by Professor Joseph Neary, retired from the University of Miami School of Medicine, where he was a lecturer and researcher in the Departments of Pathology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and the Neuroscience Program. He will give two short talks on the positive effects of meditation on the brain and how this enhances our health and well-being.  He has given talks at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, the Villa Maria Retreat Center, the Palo Alto Area Bar Association, and various other parishes and groups.

Between these two short talks will be times of silence, meditation, prayer, walking the labyrinth, silent hand work (such as crochet or knitting) that is meditative for you, or journaling.  Beverages and snacks provided; please BRING A BAG LUNCH.  Please let us know you are coming by email: janet@saintj.com.
