OVERVIEW: The Holy Week observation of Maundy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper, the meal Jesus shared with the Disciples. In our Holy Thursday gathering we will explore the symbolism of the events of this evening meal.
PREPARATION: You may also choose to join in with a little preparation beforehand. Collect a medium-size bowl of water (large enough to dip your hands), a towel or cloth, a bottle of essential oil or olive oil, a small piece of bread and a small glass of “wine.” These can be whatever form of basic or celebratory bread and beverage you choose, whatever you have on hand; from bread and wine to soda cracker and water to tortilla chips and lemonade. It does not matter, they are simply symbols in the outer world of an inner transformation. You are welcome to experience the rituals as guided meditations.
Join us as we begin the sacred approach to the Easter story and prepare for our own renewal and rebirth.
OVERVIEW: One of the final acts of our journey is crossing out and releasing those things, beliefs and feelings that no longer serve us. Charles Fillmore believed that
crucifixion represented the giving up of the error thoughts that we were holding onto. Those thoughts that lead us to believe that we are not the Christ itself. During our time, we'll take a look at the last seven sayings of Jesus and then enter a time of meditation and release.
PREPARATION: Prepare beforehand, a peice of paper with the words, " I RELEASE", at the top. We'll go into a deep meditation of uncovering outworn beliefs that keep us in bondage. Participation will include the "crossing out" of the old and placing beliefs ready for release on a virtual cross. Particpants will receive a digital picture of the collective release in their email.
In A Course in Miracles, it states, “Let us not spend this holy week brooding on the crucifixion of God’s Son, but happily in the celebration of his release. For Easter is the sign of peace, not pain.” Join us for a powerful ritual of releasing those beliefs, preparing you to awaken as your Christ Self on Easter Sunday.
