Special to The PREVIEW
This Sunday, Feb. 17, at 10:30 a.m., all are welcome to join Janie Garms and Pagosa Community of New Thought (PCNT) as we consider what being grateful really means in practical application to our everyday lives.
In the midst of crisis or tragedy, it is often hardest to be grateful. Our minds are flooded with pain and grief. But, it is just at these times when we need most to be grateful. When we are grateful, our physical body cannot help but respond and we are flooded with those feel-good hormones like seratonin and dopamine that elevate our mood and soothe our frayed nerves.
In the Bible, we are told to give thanks in all things. Maybe those writers of old knew a few things from experience. In any case, being grateful can become a habit as we practice. Start today and name one thing for which you are thankful; write it down. Try it every day for a month and enjoy the healing benefits of being grateful.
PCNT holds Meditation and Healing Circle each Wednesday at 6 p.m. All are welcome. Instruction is provided for beginners.
Thursday lecture series
On Feb. 21, at 6 p.m., we will view and discuss the film, “What the Bleep Do We Know?” On Feb. 28, at 6 p.m., we will feature Anella Handley, LMT, speaking on “Law of Attraction Manifestation Techniques.” Donations are appreciated. Please contact PCNT for more information.
