This week we will be looking at the concept of Accepting the Unacceptable. 5 years ago Emma Mary Gathergood wrote this poem, having been inspired by reading what Elizabeth Lesser writes in her book “Broken Open”.

Accepting the Unacceptable 
Something l didn’t want to happen, happens!
I feel the resistance building within me
And l feel the pressure to control the situation.......
Then l choose to accept what is happening 
So l take a long, slow, deep breath.....
I uncoil my body
I stretch out on the River of Change
I relax into the Mystery of not-knowing....
Then l open to understanding the bigger picture....
As l remember the goodness at the Heart of the Universe
I can let go into Acceptance and Trust.
 
Looking forward to our time together on Friday
With love

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 at 5:30pm UTC. Start time in your zone is https://everytimezone.com/s/a5112360
