Hello all! Our next event will take place in Saint Paul, and will focus on how resistance affects us in everyday life. There’s an old quote by Carl Jung that claims that “what you resist persists” - so, at this event, we will discuss whether you feel this is true or not - and please feel free to bring practical examples and experiences! :) I would also love if everyone could also read one or both of the following short pieces related to the topic as well: https://www.dailyom.com/cgi-bin/display/printerfriendly.cgi?articleid=5340 https://www.dailyom.com/cgi-bin/display/articledisplay.cgi?aid=28839 Some questions for discussion may include: - Do you agree with the quote and reading above? - What do you find yourself resisting in your life? - What strategies (if any) can you share with the group for releasing the grip on resistance? Look forward to seeing you there! By the way - food will be available for purchase, so please be sure to come a little earlier if you are planning to grab some. (Please note, I have decided to charge a $1 fee for our discussion events, in order to cover the cost of room rentals as well as Meetup organizer fees... I will also be contributing the $1 at every event :) ...I hope this will not deter you from attending but if so, please reach out to me!)
Hello! I am very excited to announce our first SOCIAL event for the group! (In other words, there is no formal discussion topic, and the event will take place at a restaurant as opposed to a quieter discussion space. Also, no $1 fee!) Please join us for small plates, and/or a beverage of your choice (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are served, as well as coffee/tea). I have been very excited to check this place out and I hope you all find it is convenient for you regardless of which side of the river you call home. It is right across from light rail (West Gate station), and there is also on-street parking, on University right in front, that begins at 6pm! So, I have started the event at 6:05, allowing time for you to park at 6pm and then walk inside :) Last I checked, there were plenty of spots at this time but if that fails for you, staff has informed me that you are able to park in a parking lot down the street on Emerald Street (just make sure it's not the Wells Fargo lot). Looking forward to seeing you all there and getting to know you!
Hello all! This event will take place in Minneapolis, and will focus on the concept of living in the present moment. I will also present a few ideas and quotes from the book "Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle - feel free to read the book in advance, but it's not a requirement to attend. Some questions for discussion may include: - What does it mean to live in the present moment? - We hear about living in the moment a lot, but what does this look like in everyday life? - What do you see/believe to be the benefits of living in the moment? Look forward to seeing you there! Also, the Wedge Tables offers food available for purchase, so please be sure to come a little earlier if you are planning to grab some.
