Last night’s cultivation of self-compassion class connection was so special! We each drew a card at the beginning which was a message meant for us. One person drew “Listen to the Widsdom of your Heart!” I love that. ❤️
My phone died on the way there so I couldn’t take pictures or time. ;) I’ve always said it was my “challenge” as a facilitator to keep on time to an agenda. Last night taught and reminded me that sometimes it’s good to not worry about time at all! Everything unfolds as it will and sometimes there are unplanned gems.
Last night’s gems included unexpectedly holding a crystal in my hand and meeting a Crystal whom we hope will join Renee’s family! ;) Also got to meet a (Christmas) Carol which was special became we essentially have the same name: Song of Joy! 🎼😊
Michaelene brought Mandala Blessings. She created them with love. (Using PowerPoint, can you believe it?!) We each chose one and colored it in, while meditating on loving kindness and infusing ourselves and our mandalas with compassionate messages especially crafted by and for ourselves.
Our homework assignment is to write a loving and compassionate letter to ourselves inside and mail it to ourself to read later. You can do it, too! Here's the invitation & instructions.
If you'd like to color in a mandala with your own loving kindness meditation, there are some free online coloring mandalas here. They're not Michaelene's, but they'll do nicely! :)
It was a beautiful, compassionate night together. 😄 😊
