Guild Quiet Days

Guild Quiet Days

Guild Quiet Days are offered as a time to be together in silence, followed by individual silent time. They often include a simple meal of soup and bread or light refreshment, beverages, and spiritual conversation. They are sponsored by Guild leaders on a monthly basis at various locations in Maine. 

Quiet Days are materially supported by hosts and participants in accord with each person’s gifts and talents. If you are interested in forming a Guild Quiet Day in your area, please contact Lyta Seddig at holylistening@windstream.net or 207-244-7887.

Brunswick Area
Host: Nancy Collins, 207-373-0336
This inviting group meets on Saturday every other month at rotating addresses. We hope you can join us. Feel free to bring a friend if you would like. As usual, we will start gathering between 9:00 and 9:30 and will begin our meditation at 9:30. The format will be: an opening poem, 20 minutes of meditation/centering prayer, silence until lunch time, a simple soup lunch eaten in silence, then a short period of sharing.  During the silent time you may sit, read, write, draw, relax, walk the labyrinth, or do whatever suits your fancy. We will end by 1:30. To RSVP contact Nancy at nancy.collins.phd@gmail.com or 207-373-0336.  If you would like to help out by bringing cheese and crackers, fruit, bread, or cookies, please let us know.
