Pat Carlyle will speak at the December 7 meeting of the Emerald Coast Meditation Society. Her topic will be “Dancing with Life: Exploring the Art of Giving and Receiving.” The ECMS will meet at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King, at 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The meeting, open free to the public, will include 20-30 minutes of silent meditation. Whether it's the gift of love or presents, or our presence with loved ones during the holidays, we have expectations about how it should look, feel, and taste! Meditation is a quiet form of giving and receiving to yourself and others. This talk will enable you to pause during this busy season and fully engage in the process of love with intention.
