Hello Reader-Leaders,

If you desire to develop yourself, meet new friends and enjoy thoughtful discussion, then this is the place for you!

Have you ever set a goal to read more but found that once your schedule gets busy, it's the first thing to go? Maybe you've read a really great book, applied it's learnings to your life and wanted to share your transformative experience with others? Or do you simply love learning and want to be around others passionate about internal growth and development?

In this group we will regularly gather to share our insights, experiences and wonderings as they relate to the book of focus that month. Whether you've read hundreds of books or less than a handful, you are welcome to join us here in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Never discount the power of words. One book can literally change the trajectory of your life :)

Looking forward to meeting you soon! In the meantime, click here (https://goo.gl/forms/alPkEm8H0ygNoUTY2) to share your needs and give input on what support you'd like to receive from us.

Warmly,

Akwése

Note: Before each meeting, one book will be selected in advance. Please come having read the book (or at least the majority of it) and ready to share what it stirred in you.

Venue: Starbucks near E88 Bangkok Facility (directly under Phra Khong BTS station. W District)

PAUSE ON PURPOSE: Forgiveness

ต้องการสถานที่

Join us for the second PAUSE ON PURPOSE, a three part lunch break series that focuses on insights from spiritual teachers across the globe and across tradition. This isn't your typical book club dialogue but is a focused gathering covering the spiritual development theme of Forgiveness. Join us if you want to grow in a deeper level of awareness and connection, learning tools to practice your values in action and cultivate more inner peace. For this Meetup theme of Forgiveness we will be pulling from The Book of Forgiving: The Fourfold Path to Healing Ourselves and the World by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu. While they come from a Christian background, the insights shared can be applied to all and we invite you, regardless of religious orientation (or no religious orientation), to join us! Please note that this Meetup will take place VIRTUALLY. It will begin promptly at 12:05pm and last for 30 minutes so that anyone can attend during their lunch break while still having time to handle any other personal tasks before getting back to the office. Knowing how much stress and anxiety is often created from peoples work environments, our hope in creating this series is that it be a quick yet powerful time of reorientation during your day -- surrendering negativity and overwhelm to be transformed into inner peace and clarity. Spirituality is a key part of all of our lives and our larger development -- whether you believe in God, Buddha, Allah, Mother Nature or Social Justice, we believe that in order to thrive we must see ourselves connected to something bigger than just ourselves. This series is not intended to preach or train in any one tradition but to offer lessons learned from elders who have cultivated great inner strength and resilience. As 30minutes will go by quickly we ask that you please be on time. If you haven't read the book it is not a problem as we will focus on the larger theme, using the book simply as support in exploring the theme. Expect us to begin with intros to get to know one another, then move to a brief "teaching" on the theme. The rest of the time will be a mixture of reflection questions, group discussion, paired sharing and activities for you to apply the learnings to your life and practice the skills. Warmly, Akwese JOIN ONLINE WITH THE LINK BELOW: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/340570085 ----- WHERE TO FIND THE BOOK: Online PDF: Heres an excerpt where you can begin reading but then must purchase https://www.scribd.com/doc/216663941/The-Book-of-Forgiving-The-Fourfold-Path-to-Healing-Ourselves-and-the-World-by-Desmond-Tutu-and-Mpho-Tutu-Excerpt ABOUT "All of us have at times needed both to forgive and be forgiven - whether small, everyday harms or real traumas. But the path to forgiveness is not easy, and the process unclear. How do we let go of resentment when we have been harmed, at times irreparably? How do we forgive and still pursue justice? How do we heal our hearts, and move on? How do we forgive ourselves for the harm we have caused others? Drawing on his memories of reconciliation in post-apartheid South Africa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu has identified four concrete steps to forgiveness through which we must all pass if we are to reach our destination: 1) Admitting the wrong and acknowledging the harm 2) Telling one's story and witnessing the anguish 3) Asking for forgiveness and granting forgiveness 4) Renewing or releasing the relationship Each chapter contains reflections and personal stories, as well as exercises for practising each step of the path. The Book of Forgiving is a touchstone and tool for anyone seeking the freedom of forgiveness: an inspiring guide to healing ourselves and creating a more united world."
