Warm Greetings,

Wow! December is here already! I hope you get a chance to enjoy the dazzling and festive homes and trees in your neighborhood! Bundle up, thermos some hot cocoa, and go for a walk with friends and loved ones.

We have some great announcements to make this week with a few requests left-over from last week so read on!

Let it Snow,

This Week's Mindfulness Meditation Group Topic and Practice

"Whether you are a food lover or someone who wishes they could just take a food pill and get on with their day, food is an inevitable part of our lives and we can learn to relate to it in a way that supports our mental and physical health. More and more people are beginning to learn of a new way to relate to food whether they love food or not." ~ Elisha Goldstein, PH. D.

This Week's Topic:
Mindfulness of Eating

Weekly Quote:
"I was taught from childhood of the sanctity of food. Not a piece of bread could be thrown away without kissing it and raising it to one's eyes as with all things holy." ~ Attia Hosain


Monthly Inspirational Movie Night

Our dream of having a monthly inspirational movie night for the community is now even closer to becoming a reality. We have the projector, the screen, and a few amazingly generous venue offers that we're thrilled about, but we still need to hear from you! We're still looking for ...

* Poll Responses: What day of the week and what time of the day would best suit your schedule for a monthly movie night?

* Movie Suggestions: Movies like "What the Bleep Do We Know?" "The Peaceful Warrior," and "The Secret."

* One back-up volunteer for equipment set-up once a month.

* Business or individual sponsors. (As always!)

Please, shoot us an email. We want to hear from you!


NEW: Online Member's Forum

We've added another great (and free) feature to our website. The Meditation Community of Central PA's "Member's Forum" is a great place to:

* Announce any free community events of interest.

* Connect with other like-hearted people in the community. Go ahead - connect!

* Inspire others by sharing your own writings, poetry, or life experiences from your journey of self-discovery and growth. Don't be afraid to shine!

* Share your favorite quotes, poems, songs, movies, books, and authors. If you found it inspirational and transformative we want to know about it!

* Ask a question about meditation in general or about your own personal practice. You can even post anonymously.

* Offer your suggestions. Is there a particular topic you'd like us to discuss at our weekly mindfulness meditation meetings? Would you like us to host a particular guest speaker/teacher or would you like to offer a presentation yourself? Let us know! We'd love to hear from you!

The forum is brand new and it's still looking a little thin, so click over and post something to help us warm it up a bit. :)


Mindful Parenting Discussion

Our loving thoughts and prayers are with Edyta Hutchman and her family as she goes in for emergency surgery this Friday and spends time recovering over the next few weeks.

Edyta was to present the topic "Mindful Parenting" this Saturday at the Open House Event for Om Baby Pregnancy and Parenting Center in Lemoyne. With her blessing, and armed with only a few hours worth of preparation, I'll be facilitating the discussion in her stead. She's an insightful and inspiring human being, and we hope she returns in good health soon to speak from her passion for Mindful Parenting.

This Saturday, December 5th, 2009
2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Om Baby Pregnancy & Parenting Center
834 Rear Market St.
Lemoyne, PA 17043
(717) 761-4975

Based on the book, "Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting" by Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn
