Everyone is invited, and everyone is welcome to participate in this Meetup.
Sunday Decemeber 4th @ 4pm
You can do something important for the country.
No matter how you feel about the election outcome, we can all agree that democracy works best when we don't just post online, but come together face-to-face.
That's why all Meetup organizers have been encouraged to gather our members to #MeetupAmerica between November 28-December 4.
Yoga means Union. We are one whether we perceive it or not. This event will be a dedicated post-election discussion to share peaceful and proactive steps to move forward for Unity in our divided country. Don't underestimate the power of community.
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
- Margaret Mead
Again, everyone is invited and welcomed. Everyone gets to speak and be heard.
Conscious Communication will be our byword. Zero tolerance for intolerance.
We have work to do together. Start by meeting more neighbors and hearing their hopes for our country.
The Eight Habits of Highly Effective People as described by Stephen R. Covey
1 - Be Proactive: Work from the centre of your influence and constantly work to expand it.
2 - Begin with the End in Mind: Envision what you want in the future so you can work and plan towards it.
3 - Put First Things First: Leadership in the outside world begins with personal vision and personal leadership.
4 - Think Win-Win: Genuine feelings for mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships. Value and respect people by understanding a "win" for all is ultimately a better long-term resolution than if only one person in the situation had gotten his way.
5 - Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood: Use empathetic listening to genuinely understand a person, which invites them to reciprocate with empathetic listening and keep an open mind. This creates an atmosphere of caring, and positive problem solving.
6 - Synergize: Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals that no one could have done alone.
7 - Sharpen the Saw: Balance and renew your resources, energy, and health to create a sustainable, long-term, effective lifestyle. Through our consciousness, along with meaningful and consistent progress, an upward spiral will result in growth, change, and constant improvement. One must be increasingly educating the conscious in order to grow and develop on the upward spiral.
8 - Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs.
