At Shine Restaurant's Gathering Place
2027 13th St, Boulder, CO
This Sunday's Gather is the kickoff of our November theme "Being Wholeness". Wholeness is our inherent nature, even though it's the easiest thing in the world to forget. When we see the world through the lens of wholeness rather than separation, it translates to experiencing wholeness, satisfaction and peace within our selves as well. And who doesn't want more of that feeling? We all have those places that we judge or feel shame about or want to hide or fun from. But boy oh boy, "not judging" is easier said than done...
Each of our Gathers this month supports us to step into wholeness - feeling at peace with all aspects of our selves, each other and life. This doesn't mean you have to like what you don't like. It simply means that there is a "being-ness" that supports you to feel wholeness within and to see it everywhere else as well. At this Sunday's Gather, we'll do a group practice to invite the experience of wholeness into our lives, and open the doorway to a beautiful month to come.
Our "Being Wholeness" theme is inspired by Shine's new potion "Melody Moonlight" - a warming, nourishing fall brew that supports us to become more whole and at peace.
ALL ABOUT GATHERS...
Weekly Sunday Gathers are sacred events to connect with our divine selves, with each other and with something larger that connects us all. We do this through guided meditation, song, silence, meaningful ceremonies or activities, thoughtful time for prayer and blessing, and we also bring in guest speakers for once-monthly learning talks. After our Gather, we enjoy each other's company and conversation over yummy brunch in the Shine Restaurant.
The Gather itself starts at 11:15 am and goes to 12:30 pm. A donation amount of your choice is greatly appreciated. When you arrive at Shine, head to the back room which is the Gathering Place, and that's where you'll find Sacred House. Seating is provided, or bring a pillow if you like to sit on the floor. Dress is casual and comfortable.
After the Gather we head out into the restaurant to socialize and eat together from Shine's delicious brunch menu. The charge for brunch is based on what you pick from the menu! Shine offers local, organic, holistic comfort food made from the heart, and they also make these amazing, magical non-alcoholic potions that are yummy and good for your soul. They work directly with farmers and host numerous events that support community. Their goal: When you support Shine, you support local community. Here's the link to view Shine's brunch menu, and here's a link to the page on their site that talks about the heart and soul behind their food & drink.
AND, there is also a morning yoga class at Shine at 10:00 am, before our Gather - with wonderful instructor Liz Clough. If you want, you can do the triple play - come for yoga, then the Gather, then brunch!
