WATER offers a contemplative prayer opportunity each month. This is a communal meditation that welcomes everyone. You are invited to join the wide circle by phone or in the WATER office in Silver Spring, Maryland. We gather around a presented theme. There is a time of silence and reflection followed by optional sharing. You are welcome to join us in the office, or by phone.
Once you register, you will be sent a dial-in number to call in. Your usual standard phone rates apply. For those who come to the office, WATER will be open at 7 PM (EST) for tea and conversation.
All are welcome. The circle emerged from the Engaging Impasse process, which combines meditation with community dialogue. No experience is required; just come with a contemplative spirit. Your presence will enrich us all.
