Saturday, March 9, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
On Ash Wednesday, the people are invited “to the observance of a holy Lent” through a number of practices, including self-examination and reflection. Join the Rev. Dr. Mark Cooper for a day of quiet mindfulness meditation. Learn what mindfulness meditation is and its benefits to the whole self — mind, body and spirit — then practice sitting in silence together and reflecting on what arises in the silence. Cost: $25 (check payable to St. James’s Church), includes snacks and lunch. To register by March 1, contact Anita Lisk (355-1779, ext. 313). Contact: Mark Cooper (703-980-0130).
