This week, we will continue chatting about “Heartsongs” – things that matter very much to us and about us, and the ways we share what matters in conversation and community. We will talk about our unique talents and strengths, and invite folks to begin sharing talents and hobbies with others in this group. We will use musical rhythm as we begin talking about communication and sharing Heartsong talents and messages.
Please join us – in person or on zoom! ALL ARE WELCOME — even if your were not in previous chats.
NOTE – for those joining online, please always have paper and markers (or something creative) in case we do an activity. This week – please also have something that makes “musical noise” (like a bell, or a spoon to clang on a pan).
“Peace is possible…
we have, we are, a mosaic of gifts,
to nurture, to offer, to accept…”
— Mattie J.T. Stepanek
The goal of Mama Peace Chats: A Mosaic of Purpose is to help each person understand how much they truly matter and to work toward being able to say, honestly “I am okay.” Being “okay” with who we are is an important part of peace – within ourselves and with our community.
Each month we will explore a different theme to help us understand how we are all “unique and essential gifts in the mosaic of humanity.”
