Nashville Meetup Discussion: What Would Love Do Now?

Saturday, August 8, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Panera Bread Company (100 Oaks), 2534 Powell Avenue, Nashville

Have you ever gotten caught in cycles of anger, resentment, or stuck-ness due to events in your life that are perceived as unjust or unfair? And your mind keeps playing the same scenario over and over like a stuck record? Let’s share some spiritual tools to break out of this cycle and see problems through the eyes of Soul by asking the question, “What would love do now?” These challenges provide us with the opportunity to demonstrate divine love in action, but we need to give up ego’s attachment to an outcome and being right, not an easy thing!

Murfreesboro Meetup Discussion: Creating the Life We Want

Saturday, August 15, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Books-A-Million, 1720 Old Fort Parkway M100, Murfreesboro

Did you know there are immutable Spiritual Laws of Life? Ignorance of them can bring us unhappy consequences. Knowing and living in harmony with them can bring peace, joy, and mastery of our life experiences. Contemplate on what higher spiritual laws of life you might be living by and how they are working for you. The Law of Love is the greatest one, but there are others like the Laws of Gratitude, Economy, Detachment, Attitudes, Silence, and Protection. Intrigued? Join us for a fascinating discussion!

Knoxville Meetup Discussion: Have You Experienced Your Spiritual Self?

Wednesday, August 5, 7:00–8:00 p.m.
Earth Fare (Turkey Creek), 10903 Parkside Dr., Knoxville

Have you met yourself, your true self? Who do you think you are? That is, are you in touch with your spiritual existence in this life? You are much more than the limits of your physical body, your emotions or even your mind—you are an eternal creation, a divine spark. You are Soul. How do you pay attention to the inner wisdom and intuition that sometimes floats to the surface, from deep within you? There are many subtle signposts along your journey, and you are constantly with other seekers like yourself, who strive to open their awareness!

Chattanooga Meetup Discussion: Spiritual Growth and Transformation

Saturday, August 8, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Barnes and Noble Bookstore, 2100 Hamilton Place, Chattanooga

Life is a challenge. Sometimes things don’t go your way, or the unexpected happens and the best laid plans can simply crumble. Why is that? Change can be hard, especially the kinds of spiritual changes that make you re-evaluate your attitudes, choices and circumstances. Yet the times of greatest growth and transformation are often borne out of the ashes of these rough spots in our lives. Join us for a loving discussion on how we can better look upon these moments as opportunities to open our hearts to God's love and learn to apply the beautiful gems of creativity that are nestled deep within Soul.

Tri-Cities Meetup Discussion: Spiritual Wisdom on Conquering Fear

Saturday, August 8, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
Perkins Restaurant and Bakery, 2608 North Roan Street, Johnson City

Moving beyond that contracted grip of fear in the pit of our stomach and the mind's chatter about all the ways things can go wrong is a huge challenge. We all face it. Yet there are ways to move beyond ritual and affirmations to a relaxed open-hearted feeling of trust in Spirit and knowing that in its own time all will work out, perhaps not how we imagined it, but as it needs to be. Let’s continue sharing our techniques with each other and try a spiritual exercise that can release that grip.

HU Songs in Tennessee

“Singing HU has been practiced for thousands of years in one form or another for inner attunement. In the same way a musician can use a tuning fork to find the right pitch, the person singing HU tunes in to a higher spiritual awareness.”
                                                                —Harold Klemp, HU, The Most Beautiful Prayer, page vii

Monthly and weekly HU Songs are held in the following areas and times. The HU Song lasts about 20 to 30 minutes with time afterwards for visiting and sharing. Everyone is welcomed. To learn more about the HU, and to hear what it sounds like when sung or chanted in a group, click here.
