This fall, if you are looking for something in your life that stretches your imagination, challenges your mind, opens your heart or feeds your spirit, then head on down to St. James in Fergus any Wednesday evening from now until December 21st.
There, at OASIS-Spiritual Practice for Living you will experience Taizé, story and spoken word, labyrinth and creative contemplation to help you in your quest.
Taizé worship is a prayer service consisting of meditative singing and periods of silence to help you reach a contemplative state. You can join in with the music and meditation.
Story and spoken word—our words are important, signiﬁcant and meaningful. This is an opportunity to write, listen or do both, as the group explores the word: poetry, story, drama and discussion. You can be part of an evening that values the word as experience and expression.
Labyrinth, an ancient symbol relating to wholeness, combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. It represents a journey to our own centre and back again out into the world. Long used as a meditation and prayer tool in both pagan and Christian worlds, you can walk the labyrinth, entering a path of grace offering reﬂection and meditation.
Creative contemplation—you will have a wonderful opportunity to explore avenues of creative contemplation through clay, glass, paint and more to discover and express your inner spirit.
Whether you are beginning to explore your spirituality or are an experienced practitioner you are invited to the Butterfly Hall, St. James Church, 171 Queen Street East, Fergus, on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
