If you want others to be more loving, choose to love first. If you want a
reconciled outer world, reconcile your own inner world. If you are working for
peace out there, create it inside as well. If you wish to find some outer
stillness, find it within yourself. -Richard Rohr

Mission Statement...a work in progress
The Mission of Converging Paths Meditation Center

To support participants in practicing the path of awakening,
in order to live more fully with kindness, compassion and
appreciation.

In addition to providing an environment where people can
learn and practice meditation, there is a strong focus on
cultivating clarity and equanimity within the confusion of
everyday life.

To help make this possible, the following qualities are
emphasized:
Stillness: settling down in mind and body.
Perseverance: staying with all the ups and downs of our lives.
Clear Seeing: clarifying our conditioned beliefs and strategies;
deepening our intentions of being our true self.
Willingness: honest acknowledging and embracing whatever life
presents–including anger, fear, shame and confusion–as the path
of awakening.
Loving-kindness: awakening to the loving-kindness and
compassion that are the true nature of our being.

We are unaffiliated with any particular religious denomination or
lineage. We welcome those from any tradition and with varied
spiritual backgrounds and diversities.
