Gratitude:  The Awakening of the Heart

“The eyes of my eyes are opened.”  — E.E. Cummings

Has this happened to you?  “One ordinary morning I realized I was emotionally and physically exhausted form concentrating on things I wanted to buy but couldn’t afford.  I felt trapped in a vicious circle.  The more I focused on lack and what I couldn’t have, the more depressed I became.  The more depressed I became, the more I focused on lack.  My soul whispered that what I really yearned for was not financial security but financial serenity.  I was still – quiet enough to listen.  At that moment I acknowledged the deep longing in my heart.  What I hungered for was an inner peace that the world could not take way.  For the first time in my life I discarded my five-year goals and became a seeker, a pilgrim, a sojourner.”  Excerpt from Simple Abundance.

When you delve into and embrace the principle of Gratitude as a lifestyle and not an intellectual concept, your life lakes on a new energy.

Simple Gifts:  Embracing Simplicity

Once we take stock of our lives and let gratitude begin its’ transformative work, the next step on the path unfolds naturally.  When we appreciate now much we have, we feel the urge to pare down, get back to basics, and learn what is essential for our happiness.  We long to realize what’s really important.

A Sense of Order; Cultivating Contentment

If you feel constantly adrift, but don’t know why, be willing to explore the role that order – or lack of it – plays in your life.  No woman can think clearly when constantly surrounded by clutter, chaos, and confusion, no matter who is responsible for it.  In this session you will being to think of order not as a straight jacket of “shoulds” (make the bed) but as a shape – the foundation – for the beautiful new life you are creating.  Invite divine order into your life today and a more serene tomorrow will unfold.

Harmony:  Achieving Balance In Our Lives

 Harmony is the inner cadence of contentment we feel when the melody of life is in tune.  When somehow we’re able to strike the right chord – to balance the expectation of our families and our responsibilities in the world on the one hand with our inner need for spiritual growth and personal expression on the other.  This is one of the most difficult challenges any woman faces because it requires that we make choices everyday.  In this session, you will explore those choices that bring more Harmony into your life.

Beauty:  Opening Our Eyes to the Beauty That Surrounds Us

Going at your own pace, learning to recognize our limitations, appreciating our progress, we weave the lessons of Simple Abundance into the fabric of our daily moments until they become part of us.  Suddenly one day we feel very much alive and desire more beauty in our personal quest.  We come to a deep awareness that creating a beautiful life is our highest calling.  In this session you will explore how beauty lives in your life.

Joy:  Learning Life’s Lessons with a Light Heart

Seeing into the life of things that engages us at this point in the tranformative process.  From deep within there comes a longing to give up the path of struggle as a way to learn life’s lessons.  Finally we are ready to embrace the path of joy.  What if you began to expect the best from any situation?  In this segment you will be encouraged to suspend your disbelief, after all what do you have to lose but misery and lack.  You’ll quickly discover your blessings are waiting to be claimed.
