Portrait of Basho by Bushon       The Mindfulness Practice Group of Annapolis meets year round every Sunday & Thursday except for Thanksgiving and, in 2016, Christmas day. Every Thursday session is 7:00-8:30 PM in the sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, 333 Dubois Rd., & every Sunday is 8:30-9:30 AM in the Emerson Room of the Fahs House, behind the main church building. Only highlights of our fall programming are noted below. In each of these cases our regular session in the Emerson Room is paired with a special event in Middle Hour, between the two services at UUCA.

Three haiku Sundays with Bob Ertman

      You need not attend all sessions. Please bring & keep notebook for observing. Haiku are deceptively simple little poems full of all the meaning present in each moment. Still, all of us can write haiku. The conventions call for spareness; the use of simple, every-day language; no figures of speech; no explanations; no rhymes. The hard part is being aware of the moment.
