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.

Lughnasadh Ritual
Tuesday, August 1st, 2017
7:30 pm to 8:30 pm
We have reached the dog days of summer. The heat is still intense, but already we can see the sun’s slow but steady decent to the time of darkness. The crops of the season are now fully ripe or very close to it. The fields of grains should be bent and heavy with the fullness of seed. Here where I am the corn has grown taller than my head and the ears are robust and full. As the ancients did, we find our days filled with local fairs and festivals. It was a time to celebrate the successes of life be it in farming, cooking, livestock or the arts.

Join us as at our Lughnasadh ritual, where we shall honor the Irish god Lugh and seek the blessings of this the first of the three harvest festivals in modern Paganism.

This rite will be a Druidic rite led by Rev. Derek W.

Appropriate offerings would be any burnable item that is created by your skill.

IMPORTANT: We ask that you call Enchanted Cottage at 661-323-9929 to RSVP for this ritual.
Please be a little early. Once the ritual has started the doors and gates will be closed and locked
