Here’s what I want to share with you this week:
WHAT USED TO FREAK ME OUT
Death used to freak me out. A lot. As a teenager, I lost four people in a short amount of time. I remember attending the funerals, unable to stop crying because I felt all the emotions of the people around me. For a long time, I was afraid of death and the intense emotions that came with it - as most of us are (I wrote more about that here).
But when you think about it, isn’t it strange that we are all so afraid of death, while we know that we are all going to die?
When I heard Larissa share how her connection with her father and her sense of aliveness deepened when she confronted herself with her fear about him being terminally ill, I knew that I wanted to organize a WOMEN’S HUB LOVE SESSION with her around the theme of death.
I know, I know, death might not be your favorite topic for a Wednesday night. But since death is an inevitable part of life, why not explore this topic through love, connection and laughter with a beautiful group of women? I hope to see you on Wednesday the 16th, 20:00-21:30, on Zoom!
WHAT A FAMOUS PERSON INSPIRED ME TO DO
When I read somewhere on the internet that a famous person (probably Einstein, Gandhi or Richard Branson) said that it makes you smarter to reread a few books than to superficially read many, I blushed. I’m a maniacal speed reader and am usually unable to recall anything meaningful from a book I read just a week before.
So I decided to give rereading a try.
I’m currently simultaneously rereading Untamed, The Five Love Languages, Designing Your Life and Wild Feminine, and I love all the new insights I get from it. Not sure if the famous person would approve of my approach, but at least it saves me tons of 💰on Amazon 😇
WHAT IS SLIGHTLY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE
One of the things I’d never expected I would do, but really enjoyed, was leading meditation classes for the homeless and marginally housed at the Healing WELL in San Francisco.
So when the Healing WELL reached out to me to ask if I wanted to lead a class as part of their Summer Solstice Spectacle, I said yes in a heartbeat.
I haven’t been leading public meditations in a while now, but I love creating a moment of calm and connectedness - especially for people who think meditation is not for them😉
You’re hereby kindly invited to join me in my cozy zoom room on Friday June 18th at 12:30 for a 30-minute break to recharge your body & mind.
The class is free, but I would love for you to make a donation to the Healing WELL - my favorite community in San Francisco.
