Community Potluck, 6pm

  • Oct 27, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Lotus Lodge Community & Learning Center

Every 4th Sunday we have a community potluck dinner (6pm) and often have other events such as "Being Socials," Salon discussions, classes etc., and would love your presence! This week we have 3 events coming up - two on Sunday!

[[PS - please ignore the repeated announcement about a Salon discussion on Nature! I'm new at this! But do see announcement below about being a resident here.]]

First, a HeartSpeak class series. Listening and speaking from the heart is the path to connection and harmony!

Thursdays, October 24-November 21, 7-9pm, Lotus Lodge in Candler.

$60 for four classes plus confidential private phone coaching session and a handy 21-page "minibook."

In these highly interactive, experiential classes, you'll learn:

* a language of empowerment

* how expression of feelings and needs connect us empathically

* the power of heart coherence and how to get there

* what to do when you're angry

* how to respond to a "hard to hear" message

* how to negotiate for what you want

Please pre-register: [masked].

(Cathy also is starting a 2nd class starting this Wednesday, at the Jewish Community Center. Call her for information.)


Community Potluck and "Being Social" At Lotus Lodge - Sunday Oct. 27, 6-9:30pm

After our regular Community Potluck Dinner (6-7:30pm) Marc Beneteau will host a "Being Social" gathering (7:30-9:30pm) this coming Sunday!

"Being Socials" are evenings of communication games designed for building community, meeting people and having fun.  Full description at You may come to either event or both.  

If you come to the potluck, bring a dish to share.  If you come to the Being Social, bring your curiosity and your openness to being surprised at what might come up. It’s a structured and fun way to get to know others, including getting to know better those you’ve already met!

    I'd like to invite everyone to a free event on Friday Nov. 15, "Empathy Circles" at Earthfare (Westgate), 7-9pm. No experience necessary, come share the joy and comfort of giving and receiving empathic listening.

    Wonderful gathering of progressive hearts and minds. It was a joy to spend the evening with this interesting bunch of adventurers and cooks. Thanks again everyone for sharing.

    Gaya I tried to change my rsvp and it won't let me do that. I won't be coming. I am sure you will have a deep and enjoyable time together.

    Hi Keldwyn. We did the Nature discussion last month. This week we have the 3 events - and on Sunday it's a community potluck, plus a "Being Social" afterward, for those interested. I will look to see whether we have Jim's contact info. I'm sending out an announcement via email too - as this just reaches those who joined this meet up. So, you'll probably get it twice - but please forward the emailed one! I hope you can make it! It would be great to hang out with you.
