The Words of Wisdom Book Club is being facilitated by Keicher Payne, founder of Everyday Zen Relaxation Studio and Aleksandra Ceho, Resident Astrologer. But this club will be a forum open for discussion for all of our members. Group input is essential and we welcome it with open heart and open mind. We will read one book per month and hold two meetings each month to discuss and decipher it.
Here is how our meetings work: We meet on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month. Toward the end of each meeting on the 3rd Saturday, we will introduce you to the book we will be reading for the following month and we will ask you to begin reading it in advance so that we can discuss it beginning on the 1st Saturday of the following month. When you come in on that 1st Saturday, we will be finishing up our discussion on the previous month's Read and delving deeply into discussing our current month's Read. The 3rd Saturday of that month, we will discuss our discoveries in the current Read and then introduce the next month's Read. And the cycle begins again on the 1st Saturday of the following month.
Aleks and I are starting Words of Wisdom Book Club to share and develop our understanding of some great spiritual literature. The books we choose will be meaningful in prose and in their applications to life. We love reading and sharing the reading experience with others is extremely rewarding. Reading with others will give us inspiration and help us to understand the literary works in ways that we could not achieve without your input. Also, reading is fun, but sometimes, it takes a little push to get some of us to do it. So sharing the process with you will be so helpful in getting us all to develop ourselves.
We are hoping that this book club will be formed by a diverse group of men and women. The more varied our perspectives, the more rich will be the experience for us all. Seeing works of literature from many different sides expands our consciousness and deepens our understanding of the work, ourselves and the world around us.
Our primary focus for this group is to read books that enlighten and open us up to our Inner Wisdom. These will come in a variety of forms that will include prose and poetry, non-fiction, fiction, biography, fable and folklore, fantasy and myth. The point of the readings will be to open our hearts and minds to receiving knowledge about the nature of our Self, while at the same time having a lot of fun. Some of the books will be more serious and other books will be playful. All of them, will be pertinent and will take us on a journey of deep exploration and discovery.
The Words of Wisdom Book Club will also feature a Virtual Reading Room where you can join us online if you cannot join us in person. This community will also allow us to check in regularly with one another and share our insights between our regularly scheduled meetings.
Thank you, Friends, and we look forward to seeing you soon!
