I’m joining the fast – are you?

Hello Everyone!

I’m joining the fast – are you?

At the time of this writing more than 4000 people across the US have joined in solidarity in a hunger strike inspired by World Food Prize laureate David Beckmann, who presides over Bread for the World, to boycott the GOP’s devastating budget cuts to programs that assist the poor and the hungry while at the same time increasing defense spending. I believe the numbers joining in on this monumental event will be fast growing (no pun intended!) The fasting populace are particularly targeting cuts to food stamps, WIC and aid to the international poor and farmers. NY Times food columnist Mark Bittman (who’s joined in the movement) says, these supposedly deficit-reducing cuts will barely make a dent, Bittman writes, ‘they will quite literally cause more people to starve to death, go to bed hungry or live more miserably than are doing so now. And: The bill would increase defense spending.’

If you are one of the many bright Souls who are joining the fast or considering adding your name to the ranks to Protest GOP’s budget cuts to needy here is my thank you gift to you…

I have lots of experience with fasting. I’ve typically done extended fasts – for 10 days or more – at least twice a year. And I often fast at least one day a week. So I know the experience of fasting need not be debilitating and exhausting  but can actually be not only invigorating, cleansing, but centering and clarifying to the mind and opening to the heart – if done correctly.

A brief but comprehensive guide to fasting that I wrote in my book, Soul-Full Eating: A (Delicious!) Path to Higher Consciousness, my gift to you.

Fall News and Events from Maureen

Hello Everyone! Happy Autumn! I hope you are all enjoying the slower pace and ample opportunities that the cooler fall temperatures bring to come inside and go inward. But just in case you are still feeling the urge to venture out and about, here are two enlightening experiences you may want to check out…

 


Two event announcements…   Join Maureen for a Unique Halloween Celebration in Boston and A Soul-Full Living Retreat get-away in the Bahamas

 


Maureen Speaks at Unity in the City Boston October 31, 2010

We hope you’ll join us Sunday, October 31st in our new home to share fellowship, meditation, music and a prayerful message with Maureen Whitehouse.

“All Hallows Eve” Come as you are celebration

This Halloween, it’s time to unmask!

Do you have an ego trait that seems to emerge at the most inopportune times? Perhaps a part of you that prefers trials and tribulations over joy and peace? A false personality trait that continues to hold you back, or hold you down, no matter how much work you do on yourself?

Have you ever felt as though you’re a “fraud?” As though you are great at pretending to be someone you’re not, or that you are able to put on a “good face” for yourself and others a great deal of the time, and then…  just when you feel it matters most, you fail miserably at being the REAL YOU – the one who you want most to be?
Then now is the perfect time for you to come celebrate and play with Maureen Whitehouse and the Unity in the City community as this Halloween we allow our egos full reign.

During this service you will be asked to let go entirely – to allow your ego to come out of the closet – take front and center stage – to engage and exchange with the other “egos” of the Unity in the City community.

If you like, you can even wear a costume that best illustrates your “dark side” – the illusory part of you that you’d most like to expose to the Light of day and to forgive and release once and for all.
It’s time to have fun with these egos!
All Dr. Jekylls and Mr. and Mrs. Hyde’s Welcome.

Soul-Full Living: Integrate Awareness and Positive Action Into Our Everyday Routines

Thanks-giving: Gratitude as Prayer – A Continual Feast

November 14, 2010
Unity in the City
Cambridge, MA

For the past 20 years Maureen Whitehouse has helped people radically shift their perspectives to awaken to the miraculous in their lives. While studying A Course in Miracles, Maureen experienced what the Course calls “The Atonement” or At-One-ment, Absolute Self Realization. This intense and empowering encounter created a total shift in her perception. Since this profound awaking she has lived her life helping others unmask their Divinity so that they can live purposeful, peaceful and powerful lives. Today she works with highly motivated individuals in all walks of life, from successful entrepreneurs and prominent performing artists to those simply in need of change, helping them to restore their trust in the process of life. She can help you shift your perception of every personal hell into a miraculous view of heaven.
