This week we will be discussing the true meaning of “Thanksgiving” at this time of year. As we meditate on the bounty of nature in providing us with the harvest and enough food to store for the coming winter months, we really feel into the deep relationship humans have always had with the Earth. We listen to and really feel the love the Earth has for us, and as we offer our love and gratitude to Her, we listen to hear the Earth’s response to our appreciation, thus deepening our connection and enriching our lives.
There is a glow, an irrepressible joy that spontaneously arises within us when we really listen to the Earth, or any of Her myriad forms of life. When we are able to still our mind and start to breathe with Nature….. breathing in the oxygen the trees have just exhaled and becoming aware of them breathing in the carbon dioxide we have just exhaled….. then start to deeply relax…. we begin to realise we really are an intrinsic part of the whole…we actually belong here… we are part of the Earth.
From this life changing deep connection we then become able to listen and hear what is the next step we need to take, in our unique capacity as the individual we are right now, to become “the change we want to see in the world”.
You are very welcome to join us in this enriching exploration of our connection to the Earth.
We'll send you the Zoom link the day of the event.
This circle will run weekly on Fridays. Here's the start time in your location: https://everytimezone.com/s/9150c193
