Student Community of Contemplative Practice (SCCP)

Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m. (EDT), biweekly (fortnightly), commencing September 15, 2020

Given the ongoing challenges of our evolving circumstances, MPS students Valerie De Souza and Andrea Taylor are continuing to offer an online student-facilitated drop-in Zoom gathering for the Emmanuel College community for contemplative practice and as a "check-in" space.

This gathering space is available to all members of the Emmanuel College community.

Each gathering is approximately one hour in length, and consists of (1) contemplative practices (such as a guided meditation, reflection or prayer); (2) a short reading, story or poem; and (3) community discussion and check-in, where participants can briefly discuss matters that are arising during these unprecedented times, and how our practices and community may offer strength and support.

Details, contact information and Zoom meeting coordinates are available in our Information for the EM Community Quercus Emmanuel College Events module. Recordings of previous gatherings are available on our Facebook SCCP video playlist
