The Fellowship of the Inner Light
Mindfulness meditation has become a hot topic in our society today. It has made the cover of Time Magazine and has been featured on 60 Minutes. Mindfulness meditation was first given to us by the Buddha 2,500 years ago. How much do you know about this ancient practice? In his talk, Bruce will present the basic principles of mindfulness meditation followed by a brief period of mindfulness practice. Discover how simple, (I did not say easy), it is to disengage from the chatter of the egoic mind and to experience inner peace.
Bruce is a lifetime resident of this area. He attended his first Sunday service of the Fellowship of the Inner Light during the winter of 1973 at the old Seahorse Hotel. Bruce was ordained as a Minister of the FIL by Paul Solomon in 1984 and has served the church in the joint roles of Minister and Music Director.
Professionally, Bruce retired in 2003, following a 33 year career in the criminal justice system working as Probation and Parole Officer and as a Group Home Director. Since 2003, he has worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in the treatment of addictions.
In 1986, Bruce married the love of his life, Ms. Martie. Bruce believes that his life has been greatly blessed and considers it an honor to be of service to the Fellowship of the Inner Light.
