Men in Spirit
1st Sunday, 10:30am PT. Education Annex (White House) and Zoom.
Each month, we take a spiritual principle and explore it from the masculine perspective. It’s a practical, fun and sometimes challenging look at how we can put these spiritual truths into action in our daily lives. As men, we want to make real difference in our world. Through this Circle, we do. Bring a friend and experience the power of being supported as a spiritual man in the real world!

- Chairs provided for meditation. Bring a meditation cushion if you prefer.
We will follow Covid protocols: masks and social distancing. Please do not attend if you are having any cold/flu symptoms.
No phones, laptops or iPads (please turn your ringer and notifications off before entering)
