All Are Invited!

After a two-month hiatus, Mindful Refuge, our longtime Wednesday morning mindfulness meditation group, has returned with a new format and a length of one hour!  While remaining a mindfulness practice group, our focus will be on mindful dialogue rather than sitting together in silent meditation.  Our purpose is to build community by getting to know one another in a meaningful way and learn how to do that in conversation in a friendly, safe space.  Kindness and curiosity are the two keys to mindfulness practice and remain our first principles.

Each week, a short reading will seed discussion and a facilitator will keep things on track.  Our meetings will begin and end with short periods of meditation.  We will continue to encourage everyone to have a daily meditation practice of their own.


To be added to this list for this program, please email with “Wednesday Meditation” in the subject line. If you previously participated in Wednesday Meditation, you do not need to register again and should automatically receive the Zoom link.  Please email FHNN if you have any questions or do not receive the Zoom links. Please email us no later than the Monday evening before the Wednesday session to allow us time to respond.
