Zen Mindfulness Meditation
Every Wednesday
5:30pm – 6:30pm
Come join us at the Cottage for weekly Mindfulness Meditation. We will practice mindful breathing and sitting, listening to the sound of the bell, and slow walking meditation, in the tradition of beloved Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.

“Sitting meditation is like returning home to give full attention to and care for our self. Like the peaceful image of the Buddha on the altar, we too can radiate peace and stability. We sit upright with dignity, and return to our breathing. We bring our full attention to what is within and around us. We let our mind become spacious and our heart soft and kind.

Sitting meditation is very healing. We realize we can just be with whatever is within us – our pain, anger, and irritation, or our joy, love, and peace. We are with whatever is there without being carried away by it. Let it come, let it stay, then let it go. No need to push, to oppress, or to pretend our thoughts are not there. Observe the thoughts and images of our mind with an accepting and loving eye. We are free to be still and calm despite the storms that might arise in us.” – Mindfulness Practice, Plum Village

Please dress comfortably and plan to arrive a few minutes before the meditation starts, so that everyone is comfortably seated before the bell is invited to formally begin the session.

Cost: $5.00
Seating is limited. You MUST call Enchanted Cottage at 661-323-9929 to pre-pay for the meditation session in order to reserve your seat.

with Marcia Ohlman Cox

In this workshop you will learn to use the pendulum in your everyday life to communicate with your subconscious. You can also use the pendulum for deeper questions about health, love and spiritual questions as well. You will be drawing your own pendulum chart and learning to use it to heighten your pendulum skills.

Learn to tap into your inner voice by using a pendulum in this workshop taught by Marcia Ohlman Cox.  Please bring a pendulum to class or you can purchase one when you arrive. A Beginning Pendulum book is available through Enchanted Cottage.
