Laughter Yoga is exercise and breathing — and unconditional laughter. Hasya Yoga (Laughter Yoga) combines unconditional laughter with yogic breathing (Pranayama). Everyone is welcome. You do not have to be happy to practice this joyful exercise but it can make you feel happier with practice. Instructor Claire Trivedi Brolin is a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader.

Adult Religious Education

Sitting Meditation
Sundays, 7-8:30pm, Carriage House
We practice sitting meditation and study readings from Jack Kornfeld, Thich Nhat Hanh, Sharon Salzberg, and others. The readings provide encouragement, instruction and support for those with no previous experience in Buddhist meditation. We practice for our own benefit and the benefit of others. Introductory instruction is available for newcomers. Led by Dale Peebles. You do not need to register in advance.

Adult Religious Education

Contemplative Group
Sundays, 10 am, Hollin Hall Sun Porch
If you feel drawn to deepening your spiritual life through meditation, join the Contemplative Group. We come together informally for celebration, silence, and friendship. The sitting meditation begins with simple chants from different traditions. Selected readings are followed by a 20-minute period of silence, broken by song. Afterwards we have sharing and fellowship until the MVUC main service begins. Whatever your background and experience, you are welcome.
