Sometimes when I allow the suffering around me to fully enter my awareness, I just want to cry, and I’ve finally learned to say “that’s okay”. More people are homeless and hungry, children are cooped up, mothers and fathers are faced with parenting challenges they never dreamed of, those in abusive environments lack protection, so many people old and young are dying unnaturally and unexpectedly and without the comfort of family and friends.

Barrie Ageless Life Monday – BALM
Monday, December 9, 6.30 – 9.00 p.m.
Life is an ever-changing spiral of light and darkness, expansion and contraction. Especially at this time of year you may be feeling these contrasting pulls, with memories from before, and decisions coming up that want to be resolved. Join Lynne and a group of like-minded women to let go of the issues that drain your energy, and find ways to create more joyful moments that build and sustain body, mind and spirit.
Bring a journal and wear comfortable clothes. If you wish, bring an unwrapped item for “potlatch” that will go into a basket anonymously: Gently used items like a scarf or brooch, jar of homemade jam, a book or candle, any little treasure that you are ready to pass on.
Tea will be ready by 6.15 and I hope to start and end in good time. To reserve your place, please send $25 by etransfer* to my email address, or mail or drop a cheque to S. Lynne Marshall**.
Already feeling the sense of fun and fulfillment that we will create together in this the first BALM (Barrie Ageless Life Monday).
Love and light, Lynne
