All I can say is thank you! Thank you to the Universe for all the good things that are happening to the 2012 Winter Feast for the Soul. Please read about it in the following articles. And please help us hold the intention that
The 2012 Winter Feast for the Soul
will be the best one ever!!!!
In collaboration with one of our partners, A Network for Grateful Living, we have created a beautiful e-card for you to send to your friends and family over the holiday season. The card will use Michael Green’s amazing graphic Turnaround, which is featured on the front of our 2012 brochure, along with the quote that inspired the Winter Feast back in 2007. You will find the card at www.gratefulness.org in both the Inspirational cards, and in the New & Seasonal cards sections where it will be available through Feb 25.
These cards are free to all who use them, although a donation of any size is always welcome by the Network. These cards will be a great way to tell everyone about the Feast.
I am working on a series of interviews with a variety of teachers who will speak about Acts of Kindness from the point of view of their teachings: Loving Kindness, Metta, Karuna, the Golden Rule, the Iron Rules, the Copper Rules, and the Tradition of Chivalry.
The next newsletter will contain all the names, titles and links to the recordings. As I conduct preliminary interviews I am learning so much from these wonderful teachers. I am looking forward to sharing the interviews with you through these recordings.
The world will be a better place if we all commit to Daily Acts of Kindness as a companion to our daily spiritual practice.
