We will be continuing a trial of Sunday morning meditation at the church from 8.15 am until around 8.45 am on the first Sunday of the month. The next meeting will be on Sunday 3rd September at Brunswick Uniting Church, 212 Sydney Road Brunswick (we gather in the Youth Room).
New meditators are most welcome to come along. Please talk to me if you would like to meet at an alternative time. We may be able to organise a mutually suitable time with all those who cannot make a group on Wednesday or Sunday.
