Join James Finley and other members of the Contemplative Way community on the first and third Thursdays of each month, at the Trepp Center, Santa Monica at 7:30 p.m. for reflections, meditation and sharing. Each evening begins with a reflection by James Finley, followed by approximately one hour of sitting and walking meditation.
