The Quiet Heart – Book Discussion Group

The Quiet HeartBeing a book lover from long ago, you might say I’m in seventh heaven owning a book shop!  So many wonderful books…  On the other hand, I do think it’s possible to read too much!  I believe we need time to assimilate what we read otherwise it just becomes information overload.   I chose The Quiet Heart by Dr Peter Gruenwald for the first book for The Honeyclock Book Discussion Group and took it home about a month ago to have a bit of a look.  Normally, I would finish a book this size in a day or two, maybe a week if I was really busy – but not this one!  Talk about needing time to assimilate!  Very early in the book, Dr Gruenwald describes his ‘Heart Breathing’ exercise, a type of imaginative meditation technique.  Straight away, I have incorporated this into my morning meditation.  I found it remarkably easy to begin, and also to maintain.  It’s simple, and yet I find myself wanting to really get the hang of it before I move on further in the book.  One of the next things is a Core Values Worksheet – it looks really good and I’m looking forward to working with others on it.

Come and join this fortnightly discussion group – it will be well worth it!  THURS from 28 Feb, 1-2.30pm, $10 p/f, includes a cuppa & cake  For more information check out our workshops page

We may also look at beginning an online group if we have enough interest – let us know what you want.
