Heartbeat Salon: Finding Peace Through Forgiveness

  • May 20, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Heartbeat Salon is the brainchild of Dennis Pratt, founder of Personal Growth Network - http://www.meetup.com/Personal-Growth-Network/

In collaboration with Dennis, I am posting this and will be the speaker on this evening.  Details below.  Please RSVP on his site.  Click here to RSVP

Our Topic This Evening ....

... will focus us on using forgiveness to give us greater peace, contentment, and joy.  Some of us may have held onto deep, and possibly well-justified, resentments for years.  What if holding onto resentment is blocking us from achieving the peace, love, joy, and presence that we yearn for?  How can we treat ourselves with greater kindness?  What if a few simple techniques could dissipate enormous negative energies we have bottled inside, making room for peace and calm to flow back in?

Join us as Kevin Martin guides us through techniques to clear out memories, thoughts, and feelings that interfere with our emotional (and sometimes physical) health.  Give the gift to yourself of greater peace and contentment.  Enjoy the shift in the room when everyone lets go of anger and resentment and replaces it with peace and contentment.

Preparation

1.  What are some of your favorite, oft-related stories of people doing you wrong? 

2.  Do you have any 'triggers' of ill feelings? Ie. seeing a specific person or place; hearing a certain voice or phrase.

3.  What is it that you would most like to release?

Our Leader This Evening

Kevin Martin, a PGN organizer, is an author, a hypnotist, a master practitioner of NLP, and the organizer of Greater Boston NLP & Hypnosis meet up.  He has practiced Ho'oponopono for 5 years, adding his own wrinkles.  Through doing so, Kevin has found that his perceptions of others and his own situations have changed dramatically for the good.  He has also found incredible moments of pure inspiration.

Kevin is a passionate evangelist about Ho'oponopono and has taught his version of it to hundreds of people. "No matter what technique you use, releasing these feelings of resentment, anger, guilt, and judgement, can only be a good thing."

Kevin believes that Ho'oponopono is one of the easiest ways to let go of these feelings.

The Heartbeat Salon Series 

Heartbeat Salon is a biweekly evening gathering on the first and third Tuesdays of every month.  It is held at my home in Westwood, led by guest PGN organizers, and open to all — PGN members and your guests.  You may attend some or all of them.  

Each meeting focuses on a specific "lesson" (a practice, concept, technique, or tool), coming out of a particular modality of personal growth.  

If you already are familiar with the lesson, you will be able to deepen your understanding of it, to apply it to other parts of your life, and/or to integrate it more fully into your day-to-day life.  If you are unfamiliar with the lesson, then here is an easy and informal way to try the lesson on for size and see if it might be able to serve you and your loved ones.  If so, incorporate it into your repertoire and use it for your greater success towards your goals.  If it doesn't appear to be something you would employ, sit back and enjoy the fun of an evening spent in loving comradeship.

Heartbeat Salons are intended to be fun, to allow you to connect with other sweet hearts in the personal growth community, to explore useful concepts, tools, and techniques, and to practice them so you can apply them (more) in your life.  At times, it may be feeding your mind, your body, your heart, or your soul, all in the interest of helping you to express and achieve more of that infinite potential that is inside you.  Leaders may introduce the topic with a brief lecturette, but they move quickly to the part where you, working with other participants and with yourself, look at how you might apply the night's lesson (more) to your life.

Heartbeat Salons are led by organizers on Personal Growth Network.  Some are trained leaders who run their own practices.  Others are volunteers who just love the material. You should treat all leaders as co-explorers with you — they are only offering ideas for your examination and consideration.
