2020 is drawing to a close. There are no words that can express the complexity of emotions we have all felt this last year. We, at LMM, want to help you create some spaces to reflect on your expereinces and emotions. Below are a few resources that encourage reflection and creativity.
Our guided reflection this month is about Hope, not a glib hope that shies away from suffering but a hope that is big enough to incorporate deep suffering. It is 10 minutes long and creates a prayerful and reflective space. You can download this and all our reflections onto your phone so you can listen out and about.
If crafting and creativity are your thing make some time over the holiday season to say thank you to those who have helped you through 2020. Here are a few ideas of how you can do it: Festive Craftivism, spreading gratitude and hope.
If you want to give mindfulness a try but haven't quite been sure how to get started, we have a series introducing you to the pillars of mindfulness. You can find the first session here.
Every week we have an art meditation on our website by local artist Shaeron Caton Rose. She examines current issues in our society in a thoughtful and creative way using pieces of art as a focal point for reflection. You can find them all on our blog, and here is a recent one about having an embodied faith and spirituality: Let's get physical.
