A Discussion Group with Linda Brown and Rebecca Henson
“We listen with one purpose – to allow others to empty their hearts.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh
“We listen with one purpose – to allow others to empty their hearts.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
Pondering Cafe is a reflection and discussion group based on the belief that we enrich ourselves by truly listening to the truth of others and by expressing our own truth in return.
This process deepens our spiritual growth as we listen to our inner responses to others and draw on the energy of the group to propel our own journeys.
Under the guidance of Linda and Rebecca, together we will create a safe space. Facilitators will offer one word as a prompt for individual reflection. Then we will practice sacred listening and sharing as we offer to the group our thoughts and feelings in response to what this word arouses within us. Examples of the words include: beginnings, acceptance, baggage, evolving, divine, etc.
Please join us for tea or coffee and for deep pondering and heartfelt sharing.
