Soul Circles

Cedar Lane centers our worship life on a timeless spiritual theme each month (e.g. Intention or Wholeness.) Part of our thematic ministry includes our Soul Circles.  Participants gather monthly for opening/closing words, personal check-in, and engagement with the monthly spiritual theme. These groups are a great way to connect with other members of Cedar Lane, whether you're a newcomer or a long-time member.

Tai Chi

Spend an hour a week in a relaxing, healing atmosphere. Set aside the busyness of life with the deep-breathing practice of Tai Chi. It regulates heart and blood pressure, lessens pain, and speeds recovery from illness or surgery. It also lessens the fear of falling by improving balance and increasing stamina as we become aware of our own healing energy. Beginners most welcome!

Philosophy Club

This self-directed group discusses topics of its own choosing. All are welcome to participate in whatever way(s) you like, whether you have something to present, or like to converse, or enjoy just listening in. The leader or a volunteer presenter will offer something of interest - a live presentation, or sometimes a recorded lecture, followed by discussion. Past topics have included, among others, Plato, Descartes, Darwinism, Stoicism, William James, and Eastern philosophy. Newcomers are welcome to join this ongoing friendly conversation. We expect to include some Plato in the spring.
