The Word of the Month for September, 2019 is the word Silence. The saboteur of Silence is Noise. Silence is a key ingredient to meditation. You may have a quiet place meditate, but there can still be a lot of noise in your own mind once you sit down to rest. We must learn to find the silence within ourselves throughout the day, in order to heal our own minds, and to find a place where we can respond to whatever is in front of us instead of merely reacting. How do we access this space? Practice!
The word of the Month for August is Creativity and the saboteur is Conformity. Creativity and intuition are very closely related words. Listening inside ourselves, and learning to trust our own ideas, is a very natural process. Conformity bypasses listening to ourselves in favor of whatever ideas might seem normal. In order to move forward, deep listening with creative ears is required to solve problems as they arise.
The video for this month is a departure from our ‘normal’ format of late, so that we could explore creatively – with friends!
The Word of the Month for July is Acceptance, and the saboteur is the word Denial. We often think of acceptance as a form of tolerance, but it is much deeper than that. Join us in the garden once again for a few words about acceptance.
The Word of the Month for June is Empathy. The saboteur of empathy is the word apathy. We know that empathy allows us to feel what another person is feeling and understand their perspective. Why is it important to feel other people’s pain, instead of succumbing to apathy? That’s the subject of the video for June.
