Join us for Exploring Exploration Groups with Holly Fleming and music by Sandra Hunt. Childcare is not available.
I have been involved in groups for as long as I can remember, starting with being the second oldest of seven children. The only difference with the groups I have since become part is that everyone takes turns sharing without comment and interruption and we enjoy the silence in between. Coming from a large family who still all talk at the same time, this process is invaluable. I have tried to do this at family dinners but to no avail. It's not that we don't care about what everyone has to say, it's that we're all so happy to be together and enthusiastically want to share about our lives. At times, I go home knowing there was so much I missed.
This coming September the "Exploration groups" will start up again. I have been a participant and these days, co-facilitator of a group and I can truly say it is a wonderful way to spend a Saturday morning once a month. No matter what the subject is, I learn so much from the topic, from others and myself. I add to my "reservoir" and always come away with more questions and an appreciation for the diverse ways in which we interpret and perceive people, places, ideas, beliefs and things. Come on an Explorations journey with us on Sunday, September 2 and participate as much or as little as you feel compelled and are comfortable. There is as much power in silence, listening and observation!
