It's December again, and time for our annual holiday meditation gathering
pot luck! We will meet on Sunday, December 14th, 6:00 - 8:30 PM.
Please join us and experience a sense of community around your practice
of meditation, and a coming-together of open hearts. This last month of
the year is a wonderful time for celebration and holiday, as well as for
reflection on all that has transpired throughout the year.
Please bring a dish or beverage and a friend- it's a great way to introduce
someone that you care about to meditation. It's also a wonderful way to
re-connect to community if you haven't had a chance to meditate with a
group for a while.
Please dress in comfortable clothing to participate in (very gentle)
yoga stretches and meditation. If you have a yoga mat, please feel free
to bring it with you. After meditation we'll have dinner together and
a chance to share our personal reflections and intentions for the holidays
and new year.
Thank you, as always, to everyone who joined us last month, as well as
to those who connected with us in meditation from a distance.
I look forward to seeing each of you on Sunday December 14th! An RSVP
will be helpful for planning purposes. (Please note that we are starting
hour later than we usually do.) And please mark your calendars for our
gathering next month on January 11h.

*fyi. Words of Wisdom
" How did the rose ever open its heart
and give to this world all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being
Otherwise we all remain too frightened."
"It's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself
that you realize your true potential."
"If you think the world is withholding something from you, like money,
love or respect etc.,
give that to someone else and it will, by nature's law come back to you."
-Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
