    Awakening Community Circles: "Great Relationships" - February 2018

    Week 1 - FREE OPEN MIC  Registering for Open Mic only? Click here.

    February 1 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    How does an understanding of the 3 Principles affect the dynamic of relationships? How would it influence such things as problem-solving, forgiveness, compassion, in personal relationships? How would it influence teamwork, collaboration, interactions, and resolution of issues in external relationships?

    Week 2: Marriage and Family

    February 8 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    If people "drift apart," if one person in a relationship deceives or lets the other down, if it feels like "love is lost," is there hope for a floundering relationship? Can people sustain love and good will through troubled times? Can relationships end amicably? How does the "feeling" in the family affect children?

    Week 3: Agreeable Disagreement

    February 15 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    How can people who have totally different ideas about things attain a meeting of the minds, or even a civil interaction? Can we be "friends" with those who see things very differently from the way we do? How do we find resolution?

    Week 4: Relationships Across Cultures and Beyond

    February 22 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    Consciousness connects all life. How do we find and appreciate the deeper connections that lead to reverence, appreciation, peace, and the dissolution of differences?


    Recordings are made available after each session. We generally try to get them posted by the following Monday.

    Awakening Community Circles: "Listening" - March 2018

    NOTE FOR MARCH 1 - 7: There are five Thursdays in March. We are starting this program on the second Thursday, March 8, to give everyone time to read Second Chance, by Sydney Banks. If you do not have the book, it can be gotten in text form from iBooks, or from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0449902439/?tag=csc051-20

    Week 1 - FREE OPEN MIC: SEEING and HEARING  Registering for Open Mic only? Click here.

    March 8 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    What does it mean to Listen "beyond the words" to "SEE" and "HEAR" more deeply? Why is this a critical central understanding of the significance of the 3 Principles? How does it differ from what people normally think about listening?

    Week 2: LISTENING FOR A FEELING

    March 15 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    As we see more deeply for ourselves the Principles behind all of existence, we experience our own mental activity as a feeling state first, and the feeling awakens our understanding.

    Week 3: FRIENDS AND STRANGERS: LISTENING AS HEALING

    March 22 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    Consider the fact that when there is true listening, there are no strangers.

    Week 4: FEELING CLOSER TO OTHERS: LISTENING AS LEARNING

    March 29 - noon to 1:30 pm US Eastern Time:
    We will share and discuss the experiences of listening from last week, and reflect on the significance of deep listening as an expression of understanding of the 3P.

    Awakening Community Open Mic: "Listening" - March 2018

    NOTE: There are five Thursdays in March. We are holding our "Open Mic" on the second Thursday, March 8, to give everyone time to read Second Chance, by Sydney Banks. If you do not have the book, it can be gotten in text form from iBooks, or from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0449902439/?tag=csc051-20

    This Month's Topic: In Sydney Banks’ book Second Chance, Jonathan describes SEEING and HEARING this way: “They are not physical processes; rather, they lie outside the known realm of the so-called little mind. When this phenomenon takes place, it raises your level of consciousness, which starts to bring some new understanding of your own psychological manifestations. It reveals the connection of mind to your behavioral patterns. It gives you a second chance in life. It lets you SEE beyond your preconceived ideas of life…”

    Listening, which arises when our minds quiet, is the doorway to SEEING and HEARING.

    What does it mean to Listen “beyond the words” to “SEE” and “HEAR” more deeply? Why is this a critical central understanding of the significance of the 3 Principles? How does it differ from what people normally think about listening?

    Read:


    “Coming Home” by Sue Pettit

    Coming home to peace and quiet,
    Coming home to feelings warm,
    Coming home where there's a fullness,
    where love in me is born.
    Coming home's a simple journey,
    takes no movement on my part,
    Instead of listening to my thoughts,
    I listen with
    my heart.
