misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM The Beauty of Giving Insight Session   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact:    (609) 448-1474   
   

There are some people who give and take and there are some who only take. But there are some who always give and they are the happiest people of all. The more you give the more you receive and that is the law of karma. Let’s start to give others what we would like to receive and see the magic. It can be respect, love, happiness, and friendship or even material things. Sometimes we hold ourselves back when it comes to giving because of the fear of being taken for granted or getting hurt.

Join Leena in this insight session and let’s explore together what are those blockages that stop us from being a giver.

Leena, a 9 year practitioner of Rajyoga meditation, delivers youth and adult programs on values and facilitates workshops on topics such as Harmony in Relationships, Stress Free Living, & more. She conducts classes at different Brahmakumaris locations including Piscataway New Jersey and at Peace Village Retreat Center in New York.

Registration suggested. Click the Register button, or call the library for information or to register. Please call if you need to cancel.
