Conversations with the Master - And a Xmas Social?

It's been a busy couple of days again.

I've been emailing with Ralston.

All about setting up the Increasing Consciousness Group which I mentioned before I went to Texas.

Actually, that's the reason I went to Texas :-)

The reasons I study the Cheng Hsin work are many, but they all help in every area and domain of my life. Here's a few you may be interested in:

  • Personal Transformation
  • Happiness
  • Learning How To Learn
  • Freedom
  • More Effective Communication
  • Increased Skill

The first one, personal transformation, is something I have to work on myself before I facilitate the first group. I've got to decide what transformation objective I want to achieve, begin it, and then discuss and work with Ralston towards doing it.

Anyhow it's an exciting time. The first ICG should start around January 15th.

We'll meet once a week for a couple of hours (no more than 3) and work on things like:

  • Getting Beyond Self
  • Being Effective
  • Intention and Commitment
  • Integrity
  • Concept
  • Communication
  • Honesty

I'm currently working through the course material to make sure I understand it (and if I don't, I need to contact PR to clarify it for me) and decide my transformation goal.

There'll be 20 weeks altogether, but 16 'lessons' or sessions.

These will involve dialogue, readings, guided meditations, diads with a partner, weekly assignments and more.

The Cheng Hsin work is powerful, there's no doubt about that.

I'll be asking for people to join this free course very soon, so if this sounds like something you'd be interested in let me know.

In the meantime though you can continue your own personal transformation by practising your t'ai chi set and qigong forms.

Change the mind and body. Improve your focus. Increase your energy.

And there's no time like the present, especially if you're sitting and reading this ;-)

So why not take 5 minutes and have a practice now.

Or, if you're free on Saturday mornings, you can get your Skill & Consciousness fix here:

Bye for now

PS I'm thinking we should meet up before Xmas for a little social do.

Last year, The Wig (St Helens Road) was undergoing a refurbishment but it's open now, so I was playing with the idea of meeting up there on Saturday 19th December at around 2pm.

What do you think? They serve meals there, you could have a drink or two and there are also quite a few restaurants around.

But mainly, we'll meet up for a drink and a chat. Because socialising is good for your health, right?

Everyone's welcome, whether you come to the classes or not. It'll be good to see you there.
