Interdependent Universe - One Body - One Love - Group Meditation

     “Quakers and others use the word corporate to refer to the mutual dimension of interpersonal practice – invoking an image of an interdependent whole almost like an organism or body. Independent experience is acknowledged and valued, but the challenges and benefits of mutual practice are paramount. In addition to myriad forms of mutual support, interpersonal practice offers the opportunity to tap the widely recognized, if difficult to explain, power inherent in group meditation. Interpersonal spiritual practices include interactive group meditation, collective contemplative practices, and moral action with and in relationship to others.”
