Would you like to have a heartfelt and tangible experience of the Gift of Life? Join us to celebrate Life's Abundance with friends new and old.
It feels so good to pass along what you no longer need - or to gift your time, skills and talents --- and it is such great fun to be gifted by the generosity of another's surplus or time, skills and talents.
The gift economy represents a shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, scarcity to abundance and isolation to community. - Charles Eisenstein
Our next Gift Circle is on Monday, July 14th at Carol's home in the Sugar House area of SLC. While as always we will be giving and receiving anything and everything, there were a number of people who said they had a lot of clothing to pass along, so we will have racks to hang any clothing that you're done with - or that you need, or just plain want because it's perfect!
Potluck starts at 6, Gift Circle starts at 6:30 pm.
It's so simple and the effects are often life-changing. (Really!) We share a relaxed meal together (potluck, bring your own dinnerware & utensils to keep it 'green').
Then we sit in a circle and go around 3 times sharing 3 things:
1) Who you are & any past experience with Gifting - Newbies are Gifts in Themselves!
2) What you want to give - could be surplus items, skills, time, ideas, passion, etc.
3) What you want to receive - this one tends to be tricky for many, as we have a cultivated tendency to be a wee bit in denial our own true needs and desires. And yet, to share them honestly is an honoring of our humanity and opens the door to connection and fulfillment. Plus, Givers have no purpose without Receivers.
Then we visit freely for about 20 minutes or so with your fellow Gifters & Receivers sharing more details and how to connect.
It's easy, great fun, and a place where magic becomes everyday reality. Many stories already of people asking for and receiving things they never imagined would come to be - pianos - sewing machines - snowboards - furniture - trampolines - ping-pong tables - new friendships and even love. Go figure, eh?
