Oneness Circle


An evening gathering consisting of meditation and blessings. Are you already part of the “consciousness crowd” that is emerging across the planet? Then you are in the right spot! Oneness Blessing, also known as Deeksha, will push you further into higher states of consciousness on your Conscious Awakening Journey. It is a unique and gentle process that surges the creative force dwelling in us and activates the shift of Awakening that raises the brain to its highest potential, moving a person from lower brain to higher brain activity. This is the place where joy, abundance, peace, and connectedness reside. Deeksha is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “benediction,” the benediction of Awakening.

Meeting Information: This circle meets every Sunday, directly after service in the front row. See our calendar for other events.

Team Leads: Rev. Patty Rumpza
and Judy Meyers, RScP

Be B.R.A.V.E. Women’s Circle


The “Be B.R.A.V.E.” women’s circle is an opportunity to create a community of healing around the topics of shame and fear, and to develop courage, compassion, and connection. B.R.A.V.E. stands for Being Real, Authentic, Vulnerable Expressions of the Divine.

Monthly gatherings will utilize the research and writings of Dr. Brene’ Brown, books such as “The Gifts of Imperfection,” “Daring Greatly,” and “Rising Strong.” The group will also utilize videos, written exercises, and guided discussions to delve deeply into these many topics. Confidentiality will be paramount to insure a safe and trusting environment for sharing. Attendees at the first meeting will vote on which book will start the group’s discussions.

Meetings are held second Saturdays from 10:00 am to Noon at Center for Spiritual Living Grand Junction. Bring your coffee/tea/water and an open heart as we embark on this wholehearted journey of being our creative and B.R.A.V.E. selves. Love offerings are welcome to offset costs for any materials provided and in gratitude for the meeting space provided.
