Meditation Classes: Sacred Pause | Tuesday Meditation | Wednesday Yoga


We offer two opportunities for meditation each Tuesday: Morning Sacred Pause and Evening Meditation Group

Sacred Pause

7:45–8:15 a.m.
Stone Chapel
(enter at 123 E. Delaware)

In the inner stillness where meditation leads, the Spirit secretly anoints the soul and heals our deepest wounds.
—St. John of the Cross

You don’t have to be experienced in meditation to attend. The format is simple: a greeting, a candle, a bell, and twenty minutes of silence. We have resource available to help you practice—poetry, readings, inspirational photos.

In the spiritual traditions of the West and the East, the practice of meditation is an essential way to become present to God, to ourselves, and to creation. In the practice of contemplation we attune ourselves to God’s presence by being fully conscious in the present moment.

All are welcome. You may drop in occasionally or make this a weekly practice.

Conveners: Thomas Schemper, Nanette Sawyer, Vicky Curtis

Tuesdays at Replogle

7:00–8:15 p.m.
Boyle Conference Room

Donation of $10 or whatever you can afford to support the work of the Center is appreciated

Whether you are new to meditation or an experienced practitioner, we invite you to join us on Tuesday evenings for a time of silent meditation. Come whenever you can. All traditions, all faiths, all forms of meditation are welcome.

We begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. with twenty-five minutes of silent meditation; those who wish to stay for discussion around the theme for the month are invited to do so. Our theme for March is “How to  Bring Mindfulness into Everyday Life.”

We encourage you to reserve your space by clicking on the dates for the evenings you plan to join us.

Yoga for Managing Stress and Mood
First and Third Wednesdays

7:15–8:30 p.m.
Boyle Conference Room

Donation of $15 requested

Working with the body, breath, and mind can have a profound effect on managing stress and shifting mood.  In this 75-minute semimonthly class led by Kate Wester, a certified yoga teacher and a staff therapist at the Replogle Center, we will use postures (asana), breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation, and deep relaxation to

  • reduce the impact of stress
  • learn to self-soothe and care for yourself
  • improve sleep
  • restore vitality

While this class is gentle and is suitable for people with little or no yoga experience, it is not intended for people with serious injuries or limited mobility of the wrists, knees, and back.  Please consult your doctor about the suitability of this class for you.
