The Power From Whence Life Comes

Nine friends from Woking meeting (see photo) spent an inspiring and soul searching weekend attending a course led by Gerald Hewiston, exploring The Power From Whence Life Comes. We had a revealing session called The Slanderer, where we faced up to the negative messages we can give ourselves, and went on to find a way of re-framing the messages. Looking at ourselves with ‘soft eyes’ was gentle, whereas in our imaginations casting ‘soft eyes’ upon someone who we find difficult was not quite so easy. ”Through the burning sword” was a challenging exercise but very worthwhile and an important step on the way to ” Creating the peaceable kingdom : Transforming the world by being who we are”.
