Reblog: Resistance is Futile

1344 Relax and Succeed - Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes

It’s a holiday here in Canada, so today I’m re-blogging a post about flow versus resistance. It’s always a lesson we all need to return to many times during our lives. Here’s the link to the blog:

Resistance Is Futile

Enjoy your day.

1343 Relax and Succeed - Nature always wears the colors of the spirit

While the walk will happen this long weekend, please note that the time has permanently changed to 11am. Sleep is also a form of meditation, so a later start time should enable everyone even more time at peace. šŸ™‚

Sundays

6750 ā€“ 88th Street
Argyll Community Hall

This is a place for those who may not engage with a classic spiritual tradition, but who nevertheless have a desire to discuss their questions or conclusions about their spiritual life with others who share their interest in actively developing their own psychological and spiritual health.

We have no agenda, although I am open to questions. This is simply time in nature, spent with others who also share an interest in quelling their busy minds in order to engage more profoundly with our daily realities.

#YEG Secular Sunday Walks Begin

Please note, the schedule for the walks is that we now start at 11am, walk forĀ  an hour and then anyone who wants to continue talking afterwards is welcome to stay afterwards to do so.

1330 Relax and Succeed - YEG Secular Sunday Walks Begin

Many people with no definable religion can still appreciate the value of communion with like-minded people. Sharing through silence or through words allows us to be together in a spiritual space that leaves us all feeling stronger and clearer for having experienced it. We can come alone, or we can plan to have friends join us too.

Even if you’re not here in Edmonton where I am, people can still find like-minded people to do this with. I recall a woman in Australia who met regularly with two friends. They would meet in a park where they would begin by reading a blog of mine, and then they would walk and discuss how they saw the principles in that blog come alive in their own lives. They all found it very helpful.

If you are in Edmonton, some of you may be former students, some may be people thinking of working with me that have questions, and still others might simply be people who want to spend more time with other people who are actively engaged in the act of increasing their awareness and controlling their over-thinking. And some might just like the idea of a pleasant walk outdoors (we’ll figure out a backup plan for rain).

It is a busy time of year, so maybe I’ll be alone. Maybe there will be lots of you. But the walk will be rewarding regardless. It will be a joy to be in nature, and nice to talk to or share silence with those present.

For those who would like to join others in a shared intention for the walk, I will give a brief talk before the walk starts. That way we can establish a shared focus for those who haven’t chosen one of their own. Other than that the walk will be about relaxing and opening up and sharing, so if you would like a regular dose of healthy peace and enlightening conversation, consider joining us.

Walks will commence on July 14th at 10am and will happen each successive Sunday until further notice. Note: this schedule has been changed since this post. TheĀ new information is below:
