Meetups and Small Groups
We have so much happening at All Souls Braintree! A number of different small groups meet here for exploration and expression. Please check our Calendar for the most up-to-date schedule.
All church activities are FREE and open to the public.
Singing Meditation: Meets the second Monday of each month at 7 pm. This interfaith spiritual practice combines many types of group singing and drumming with observation of silence. A simple song is typically sung repetitively by the group until the song spontaneously dissolves into silence with a gentle signal to end the silence after several minutes. The singing part of “Singing Meditation” includes a variety of vocalizations: toning, chanting, singing in rounds, singing in harmony and mantras. Our goal is to sing or chant enough times that our collective vibrations resonate deep in the heart of each participant. Some of the songs used in Singing Meditation are slow and contemplative. And, some are high energy and joyful with percussion and / or other instruments - deliberately chosen to be easy to learn. No experience with singing, meditating or drumming is necessary. Entrance through door at the end of the handicap access ramp off the parking lot.
All skills welcome.
Book Discussion Group: Meets once a month September through May, first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm to discuss a book mutually chosen. Meets in the Elliot Room. Entrance through door at the end of the handicap access ramp off the parking lot.
