Wisdom Leader: Jeanine Siler Jones

Do you lead or facilitate Wisdom groups or events?
Do you have resources to share?

When we share what we’ve learned, and support those taking leadership roles, we are investing in growing and strengthening the Wisdom community. If you have information about your groups or events, or resources or experiences you’d like to share, we invite you to join us by filling out our simple form: Help Us Grow Our Communities of Practice. We’ll then create a resource page so others can get to know more about you, your journey, and your offerings.

About Jeanine’s Small Group: 

Our contemplative group meets the first and third Friday afternoon for an hour and a half.  Usually there are six of us. The group formed after the Introductory Wisdom School at Kanuga in 2015.  We begin with a body centered meditation or body scan to fully arrive and inhabit our bodies.  We chant together then sit for 20 minutes of Centering Prayer.  On the first Friday of the month, we work with a Gospel of Thomas logion in Lectio Divina style. On the third Friday we are discussing The Holy Trinity and the Law of Three, one chapter at a time.  We end with some silence and a body prayer.  We have room for a few more people to join us.


Additional Offerings:
