At the healing share this month, we experienced sound along with Reiki. We placed Tibetan bowls on the body of those receiving energy. The vibration was felt differently depending on the placement, the need of the body, the emotion of the receiver, and the energy sent from the practitioners. It was an evening of discovery, laughter, and healing. Some of us had pain that night that was relieved the next morning. The healing power of the group is quite transformative. If you have not attended a session, please join us next time.
Besides fun and healing, my heart was touched that night by Rita, a retired nurse, who volunteers at the Emily Griffith School and teaches refugees English. Some of theses brave souls have been in refugee camps for 20 years. Listening to Rita talk about the refugees inspired me.
When I think of these refugees, it reminds me of our forefathers as I surmise the gratitude they all must have had to finally live on this continent. Back then, Thanksgiving was a time to reflect on gratitude, not only for their abundant crops, but also for a place to live in freedom. My prayer is that this land will always be a place where people can come to feel free to express their ideas, and be safe and loved.
In gratitude and love,
Bring friends, family and your favorite dish.
