We will be having our Body Mind Talk Circles generally on
the Fridays of each month, and the next Talk Circle Date is
|Friday||November 19th||7 pm|
|HAPPY THANKSGIVING, almost
| Of all the holidays that we celebrate in America,
Thanksgiving is my most favorite.
| When we bring into conscious awareness, good things
that are happening in our lives, at Thanksgiving,
as well as on a regular basis, this repetition seems
to take the focus off of what we perceive
as the negative aspects of our lives.
This is the blessing of Thanksgiving, to focus on the positive,
the evolving, the progress, the purpose, perseverance,
the lessons learned, the determination, focus, growth,
gratitude, understanding, obstacles overcome, etc.
| Often times when we encounter even adversity,
we find blessing, in that being challenged forces
us to grow in ways that we may not have considered or allowed.
We tend to rely on God more, during hard times.
We broaden our thinking, and grow more flexible and creative.
We become better able to comfort others, by experiencing difficulty.
Adversity keeps us from being prideful. An attitude of gratitude
can make the most difficult and painful situations,
positive, or more positive.
Gratitude makes acceptance of things the way they are, easier.
It is a focus on the glass being half full, rather than half empty.
| Towards this end, I would like to invite you to join with me
for a dinner and Talk Circle this week, on Friday November 19th
at 7pm at my home at 1823 West Main St, Norristown. 610- 631-0880
We will focus on Thanksgiving, Gratitude, and
what all is happening in our lives, currently.
| The cost is $10. per person, or let me know
if you wish to being a delicious food contribution.
It is best if some people do not bring food, so I can be
reimbursed for the food that I make. Since I do not know
what others bring till the last minute, I usually make a whole meal,
and have contributors add some nice dishes.
| Feel free to invite a friend or pass this email along.
Is best to park on Wakefield, rather than park in the driveway,
as it is very difficult to back out onto Main St,
| Here are lines from an American poem
usually attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson
that focus on Gratitude and Thanksgiving
goal and intention of Karen's REJUVENATION EXPRESS Talk Circles
is to provide a time and place to
and get away from daily stresses,
together with other people,
upon our lives and choices, and
our energy, focus, peace, and joy.
