Rooted In Mindfulness

Meaningful Books and friendly Conversation

RIM Reading Circle

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.

C.S. Lewis

About RIM Reading Circle


  • Are you searching for a way to further explore mindfulness topics?
  • Are you looking for a heart to heart connection with others who have similar interests in deepening their practice?
  • Are you hoping to expand your understanding of Mindfulness practice through insightful literature?

Join us once a month as we read and discuss literature relating to Mindfulness learning & practice. 

What to Expect:

  • Friendships: Bonds are often borne from sharing questions and insights. The RIM community is a welcoming bunch! We learn from and inspire each other to deepen our understanding of the teachings and the practice.
  • New Horizons: We read a variety of books, and the exposure to different literary authors opens up new possibilities for understanding and spiritual growth.
  • New Awakenings: We come together to consider how a selected book inspires and impacts our mindfulness and meditation practice. Also, we examine how an author’s message helps keep our practice fresh and meaningful.

Come as you are:

Anyone who enjoys reading and friendly discussion is welcome.

When and How we meet:

This group usually meets at RIM every fourth Friday of the month from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. Please see below for the next Reading Circle gathering date.
