When we meet, what will it look like?
When we gather, there will be a simple structure.
As people arrive, we will offer a drink and space to relax.
Then we will listen to a chapter from the book.
We will light a candle, and a simple prayer will be read aloud, giving people a chance to be still.
We will pick up on the week's theme and discuss people’s experiences and ponderings. Each person will have their space to talk or hold silence, an opportunity simply to share how their week has been or to share their thoughts on the chapter No one has to speak and stillness is fine.
Each week we will use the three thoughts Brene includes at the end of each chapter to help us think about how we might have a go at the various practices in the week ahead. We will try and be open to trying these things, and then feeding back the following week how it felt. Some suggestions will work for some. Other suggestions can simply left behind. This is space for you to find your gems amongst many pebbles.
