Starting in June , New Book for the Book Club
-Tues., Jun. 11, 7:00-8:30 PM, Book Group. The group will start a new book by Pema Chodron titled “Living Beautifully… with Uncertainty and Change”.
Synopsis by Amazon:“We live in difficult times. Life sometimes seems like a roiling and turbulent river threatening to drown us and destroy the world. Why, then, shouldn’t we cling to the certainty of the shore—to our familiar patterns and habits? Because, Pema Chödrön teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging keeps us from the infinitely more satisfying experience of being fully alive. The teachings she presents here—known as the “Three Commitments”—provide a wealth of wisdom for learning to step right into the river: to be completely, fearlessly present even in the hardest times, the most difficult situations. When we learn to let go of our protective patterns and do that, we begin to see not only how much better it feels to live that way, but, as a wonderful side effect, we find that we begin to naturally and effectively reach out to others in care and support.”
Cost: By donation (suggested $5 donation or bring refreshments to the meeting). Location: Woman’s Club.
