Eugene HoldenOn Sunday, we shall receive an ENCOURAGEMENT from Licensed Practitioner and Life Coach Eugene Holden. Eugene loves life! His passions run deep and wide–from the Chinese Martial Arts and Tai Chi Chuan, to writing the monthly affirmations for the Science of Mind magazine, to playing and singing music weekly. With a child-like spirit, Eugene dives into life face first, laughing all the way. His purpose drives him; his love of prayer guides him. Eugene is a deeply intuitive spiritual counselor and life coach with a knack for helping others awaken to their own divinity within. When asked about his work in the world, he says, “I’m here to help facilitate the process.”

This Saturday October 7: a dialog facilitated by Eugene Holden
Eugene will facilitate a Listening from Love dialog at the Center on issues of diversity and inclusion. We’ll be engaging in highly interactive activities around the following questions:
How do you feel about the race relationships in your community?
• Are you in touch with the feelings that recent broadcasts and news items have brought to
your awareness?
• What have you noticed about yourself through your reactions to these recent events?
• Have you discovered some unforgiveness that you have?
• Did you think you had resolved issues only to have certain feelings triggered? Can you
give examples of this?
• Can you see more love and justice showing up in your world?
• What would it take?
• If I had my way, what would justice, equality and fairness look like in my world?
• What’s my part in this?
• What gifts do I have to offer?
• What am I willing to become?
All are welcome! This is being done on a LOVE OFFERING basis (donations are requested and not required). From 2-5 p.m. at 7059 Blair Rd. NW. Metro: Takoma. Free parking.
