November Practice Day- Mystical Poetry and Mindfulness for Serenity
Mystical Poetry and Mindfulness for Serenity
with Fay Adams
Saturday 18th November 2023 from 10.00am-16.00pm
We’ll spend this day contemplating serenity, acceptance and grace, inspired by the timeless wisdom of the Serenity Prayer (below).
With the help of mindfulness, we’ll ease into the present moment – the only place where serenity can be found. We will sit with carefully chosen poems throughout the day, which will transmit, through the power of words and metaphor, the potential of serenity as a felt quality which we may all connect with, in the midst of the ups and downs of our life as it is.
Give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things we can
And the wisdom to know the difference. (by Reinhold Niebuhr)
