2017 MONTHLY NEWSLETTER
N Warren, Pa.
A WARM winter greeting to each of you,
Real winter is upon us and how spoiled we became with
mild winters. This is very much like I remember winter when I was a
kid. Many of you have heard me say that I truly believe humans were
meant to semi-hibernate when it's consistently cold, just crawling
out when necessary. I like winter for the most part. The birds here
are so remarkable and so many! I've got a feeder just outside the
breakfast room window and actually look forward to sitting at the
table, eating a hot meal and watching the show. Most of all, this is
my time to read, study and write. Quiet and perfect conditions to
incubate the soul. I hope all of you can use winter for things that
work for you and even enjoy it some of the time.
Our beginner meditation class is into the 3rd week now.
We started out with a one week delay for the convenience of those
attending, but we're full speed ahead at this point and enjoying
each other's company. Sometimes a special bond takes hold in a class
and makes it extra-effective. Our first Global Oneness Gathering was
well attended and the initial theme of where all spirituality
progresses from - ourselves - was a good starting point, along with
setting an expected procedure for each meeting. Our Feb. 4th
gathering, always the first Sunday of the month at 6:30, will be
centered around Healing the World, One Soul at a Time. This is a
very diverse group of people, making it a little challenging for me
to configure it all relative and meaningful, but it is coming
together quite well at this point - dah! - I ask for help and it
comes. We NEED this kind of time together at this point of world
conditions. All the world is in crises in so many ways. I'm always
moved by the genuine caring of the people who come to Circle of the
Soul events, their concerns, feelings and ideas are invaluable.
Newcomers can still attend, but please let me know ahead and I will
have catch-up hand outs ready for you. As always, I'm available for
readings, custom retreats, weddings, funerals, naming ceremonies,
house blessings, and past life regressions.
Things just seem to escalate on and on, don't they?
Holding ourselves, our families and those around us together is a
big task in itself. It is good, even necessary, to find a quiet time
of "nothingness" each day to restore our strength and sanity. We
need to keep working on what we can make positive and good. Even the
smallest of gestures holds big meaning. Each day I begin by asking
for things to do that are effective and helpful. This usually brings
some surprises and has me more aware of what I CAN do. - Little,
easy things and big take-your-breath away situations. Try it and
your entire day will take on a different atmosphere. If we can be OK
from WITHIN, all else will be bearable, be it personal problems,
work related endurances, or all the messes the world is in. Try to
let it all be OUTSIDE of you.
Though it might be discouraging, we are only ONE month
into winter. It seems like we have lived in a world of white stuff
for a long time already. We can break it up and do better with it by
some variety: friends for a meal, a new good book, a walk in the
sunshine when it's there, tackling a put-off chore and being done
with it. You get the idea. In a way, it's ignoring it unless it's
time to shovel or bundle up and go out. Each of the seasons hold
great meaning with the ways of creation. Beneath it all, plants are
resting and getting ready for a new show, and maybe lots of bugs
will get killed off by the consistent cold - one could only hope. If
there is meaning in winter for all of creation, there is meaning in
it for each of us, as well.
So, bring on the hot
chocolate, count your endless blessings, and may the awareness of
Spirit be yours,

SPECIAL NOTICE ! !
CIRCLE OF THE SOUL RETIREMENT HOUSE and Continued Services
50-52 North State Street, North Warren, Pa.
A modest retirement apartment complex in a beautiful and yet convenient
location for Spiritualist / Non-sectarian minded people to live in
separate quarters and yet have a supportive network to share our
abilities as we assist each other spiritually and practically while we
age. This is the ONLY retirement group in the entire world specifically
assigned to Spiritualists and open-minded believers. Located in a lovely
setting adjacent to a wildlife conservancy and the Conewango Creek, this
1900s converted mansion is in an ideal setting a few blocks of Walmart,
banking, and other conveniences. This was an opportunity that could not
be passed up! (0ver)
Presently Circle of the Soul Retirement house consist of 3 apartments,
the largest occupied by owner, Lynn Caufman, and 2 one bedroom
apartments with room for expansion of 2 additional private living
quarters. Though in fine condition, many improvements are in the making,
and yes, all kinds of plans. The first is to set up an exercise area in
the usable, dry basement. So, we are in need of purchasing good used
equipment, anything from small weights to an exercise bike. This will be
available to anyone associated with Circle of the Soul. A separate
basement room is ideal for a “basement garden,” a greenhouse type
lighted arrangement to grow veggies the year round. Being on a small
lot, there is room for an outside garden, too, with the intention of
filling the rest of the entire area with plants where never a lawn mower
will be heard!
Small classes will continue as they always have: meditation, Reiki and
occasional other events. Readings, regression sessions, and Circle of
the Soul other offerings will also be available. Our format is altered a
little in a brand new location for quality living and spiritual
If you are curious or seriously interested, please give me a call to
discuss details. If the 2 apartments are rented, I will maintain a
waiting list of which there would be no obligation until contacted upon
availability. First preference is given to Spiritualists and
non-sectarians. My intent is to provide a multiple home for we who are
aging and do not fit in with conventional retirement arrangements.
Downsizing does not need to be downgrading. Please tell others about
this great new endeavor and May the Awareness of Spirit be Yours.
