OPEN HEART COMMUNITY CIRCLE
Our meetings create an invitation of meeting old and new friends, dissolving any strangeness that stood behind the veil and opened doors to friendship. We were never strangers!
Our ability to embrace and open our hearts to share the abundance: food, conversations, stories, poetry, music, laughter and silence.
We are grateful for all those who come to be part of the OPEN HEART CIRCLE.
We met, some as strangers,
Yet our greeting was warm
knowing that there was a hidden friendship
awaiting to share stories, laughter and more
We sat in silence in a circle
Where candle flames danced on the inside
As we journeyed through the silent path
Without destination but an onward and inward journey
Our brief introduction opened our hearts
Dissolving what seemed unfamiliar
Awakening the human needs
Revealing to us that we were all one
Unspoken words could remain silent no longer
Sharing food opened new conversations
That had long been waiting to be spoken
Embracing strangers unfolded new friendship
Beyond the ideas of righting wrong doing
There is a field
The Open Heart Circle
We'll meet you there.........!

Avenues to explore
The magazine called Resurgence which has combined with the Ecologist; please explore their website. They also have an annual 4d gathering near Worcester. It is well worth a visit.
The documentary on the life of Maya Angelou which was on BBC 1 on Tuesday night:
BBC iPlayer - Watch BBC One live Watch BBC One live on BBC iPlayer.
Subjects to explore
Homeless people - this is the subject that we can explore and see how we can as a community play a role to help. I would be interested to hear other discussions that you would have shared at our last meeting.
There was also the interest of playing/creating music together. So how about bringing an instrument and lets try something without the fear of making mistake of being a fool…… Like the words of Rumi echo an inner cord of comfort:
“Beyond the ideas of right and wrong doing
there is a field
I will meet you there.. . . “
Please feel free to share with a friend who you feel may be interested.
We look forward to welcoming you again
Sharing Light health and friendship
