The Spiritual Life Department invites you to come and discover our new room that is dedicated to meditation and reflection. As resident Irene Cool shares, “It is for those who need a few minutes to be alone with whomever they believe to be their Supreme Being…..or to just be alone for that matter. It is for the ones who take care of others until sometimes they feel tired and overwhelmed. It is for you and me to simply have a placebo reflect on the presence of the Holy Spirit with quiet concentration. It is for those who ask for divine inspiration and guidance on how to provide for others in their different stages of need and only have a few minutes to do that. It is a praying place.” It is a place which will engage your senses or allow you time to enjoy the silence. It is a place to escape from or escape to.
You ask, “Where is this place?” It may take a little intention to find it but once you find the Life Center you are very close. You can get to it from within the Life Center and there is also an outside entrance. Once you are in the Life Center you will see double doors up front on the left and the Quiet Place is through those doors. For now it will be open 8:30AM to 2:30PM but we are working on making it available for more hours. Come find Chaplain Andrew, me, or our Admin.Assistant, Kimberly, whose office is across from The Quiet Place and we will be happy to help you find it. Resident shave been asking for this kind of space for quiet and reflection for a longtime and we are happy to have it available now. *
