Weekly Quote:
"Contain your experience with the divine so that it does not escape you but rather shapes you. Be silent. Silence will help you avoid engaging in the games of competition and illusion that regularly seduce us in the outside world. Silence also helps you avoid distraction. It helps focus the busy mind---the mind that always has to be doing something, thinking something, the mind that always has to be otherwise engaged lest it become introspective and allow the soul's voice to override its own. The silence I am describing is a silence that you use to contain the grace you receive when you enter the Castle of your soul. This quality of silence allows you to engage in discernment." ~ Caroline Myss

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 whyimeditate.com 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. :)
