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.

Workshops, Term 1, 2013

We are excited to offer some different types of workshop at The Honeyclock in Term 1 of 2013.  We still have felting and pastel drawing for those of you eager to get your hands busy and your heart singing with the joy of creating.  Add to that the possibility of creating a fashion talking piece in the form of a button necklace, made with all your old buttons!  But we’re adding some ‘life classes’ too!  Some opportunities to talk and share, to discuss matters close to your heart, and to learn some new ways of thinking about things.   All the information is on our WORKSHOP  page.  We look forward to your interest!  Give us a call to book your place and, even better, find a friend to bring too!
