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

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.
