Spiritual Preparation, Workshop 8: Gather to Celebrate

In "Gather the Spirit," a Tapestry of Faith program

Reflect back to a very "aware" moment you have spent on the water—a time in a canoe, perhaps rocking on a wide lake, when you could appreciate the vast sweep of universe and nature.

In the moments before this workshop begins, with all your preparations complete, meditate on the sensation of floating in a boat or when swimming, and the connection of that sensation to the spirit of meditation. You may find that floating on or in water shares with the meditative experience the feeling of letting go, of being supported, open, free and receptive to whatever transpires. Allow yourself to relax, to drift, in the course of this meditation, before returning to the reality of the moment and the pleasant duty of welcoming the group.
