Sunday Service Meditation
Join us for a time of calm and meditation on Zoom every Sunday morning. Please arrive early for the 9:45am start. It will finish by 10:05am, so you'll have enough time for a body break and a coffee or tea refill before you sign in on Facebook Live for our Sunday celebration at 10:30am.

On July 8th, we held the first in a series of four 90-minute Community Conversations. In a safe and supportive environment, we're exploring anti-racism and topics like privilege, inherent biases, and systemic racial injustice.
Registration for the full program is now closed. If you didn't attend any sessions so far, but are keen to join for us for the last session, please contact Dr Deborah Gordon or Amanda Pope directly to discuss.
Upcoming Book Study
If you missed Community Conversations in Kelowna (or are looking for more on this topic), Centers for Spiritual Living invites you to join others from our greater organization to work towards greater inclusion.
Session facilitators, Rev. Sunday Cote, Rev. Rafe Ellis and Rev. Barbara Bue, are inviting practitioners and members to a study of the book, Me and White Supremacy by Layla Saad. They will be joined by representatives from each council to assist in a large group discussion and small group circles throughout each series.
Registration is now open and there is no fee to attend. Please sign up for your respective collegial group. The schedule is as follows.
Practitioner Book Study
Mondays at 5pm Pacific (6pm Mountain/7pm Central/8pm Eastern)
August 3 to 31, 2020
Member Book Study (non-minister or practitioner)
Tuesdays at 5pm Pacific (6pm Mountain/7pm Central/8pm Eastern)
August 4 to September 1, 2020
It is our full intention that this program will create a space to be honest without shame or judgement – an opportunity to learn and grow together. These sessions will not be recorded.
