Taking Action (Take Two!)

This is the power of gathering: it inspires us, delightfully, to be more hopeful, more joyful, more thoughtful; in a word, more alive. ~ Alice Waters

Welcome to Paths of Heart“- a high spirited, heart-centered community where we gather together in music, poetry, commentary, and dialogue to create and nurture joy, compassion, gratitude, and love – in our own lives and throughout the world.  Paths of Heart is a 501(c)(3) Human Services/Educational non-profit organization that uses the arts, especially, to encourage and propel seekers of a better, more peaceful world to find ways to serve, while becoming more kind and compassionate human beings.

We welcome you as we collectively and individually explore the sweet mysteries of life – this is an invitation into co-creation! Our gatherings are most every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. at 117 Evans Drive in north Fort Collins. Childcare is available (please let us know ahead of time so we can make arrangements).

We hope our paths cross soon!

Taking Action (Take Two!)
With last Sunday’s snowstorm, it seems most folks decided to stay home snugly warm and safe.  That’s a good thing!  So we’re doing a do-over of last week’s topic, asking ourselves  how we can honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by taking action to improve our own lives and the world we live in.  We hope you’ll join us for this Sunday’s gathering and stay for our potluck afterwards (details below)!

“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you. ~ Thomas Jefferson

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ~ Anne Frank

“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” ~ Joel A. Barker

Looking Ahead/Notes of Interest

January 28th,THIS Sunday, we’ll have a potluck after our gathering.  Please bring a dish to share, and your own plates and utensils.  We’ll provide cups, cloth napkins, and a variety of beverages.

We invite you to visit our website,www.pathsofheart.org. There you’ll find past newsletters, a newsletter sign-up form, more about our organization, a photo gallery, and a ‘donate’ button, for those who prefer to donate with a credit card .  Big thanks to those that made end of year donations online!  Stop by for a visit and please share with friends!

‘Gratitudes’

We are grateful to the few brave souls who ventured out in the snow to spend Sunday morning with us!  We had a wonderful, intimate conversation around the coffee table and a yummy breakfast afterwards.  It was really quite lovely!

CAR-EOGRAPHY *  You may park in the driveway, as well as diagonally along the north side of our property.  Should those areas become full, please park out on Hwy 1, which has plenty of space and a nice wide shoulder.  Please watch for cars as you are exiting and entering your vehicle, though! The carport area is reserved for folks with special parking needs. Out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that you kindly refrain from parking on Evans Drive beyond our property line. Car pooling is encouraged.  We also have a bike rack for cyclists!

Yoga with Heart!

We do yoga here in our “community space” on Mondays and Wednesdays.  All levels are welcome to participate.  Let us know if you’re interested in joining this heart centered practice!

“Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone’s soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.” ― Rumi

Please note, we are a “remove your shoes upon entering” household (what better way to bare our “souls”…!).  Feel free to bring slippers or thick socks for your comfort (and we always have extras!)
