Harvest Gathering
with Satyena Ananda

Your gratitude is one
of your greatest powers,   
for only when you find gratitude
do you begin to be liberated     
Grace, Gratitude, and Joy
We gather together at this time of Harvest to give thanks for our many blessings and to share with each other the fruits of our lives as well as the gifts we have received. We all know the power and grace that comethrough gratitude. When we imagine a circle of "women of faith," connected and focused on Gratitude and Blessings, we tap into the incredible goodness that we have the power to unleash in the world.
Please join us for our traditional gathering as we share an evening of:
Connection, Inspiration, Ceremony, Gratitude, Prayer, Song
And a Harvest Feast
This year we will be using the power of our voices to acknowledge our appreciation for what we are harvesting: gratitude for what has been, what we have received, what we have learned, how we have grown, the gifts we have given,  the joy we have known, the strength we have called upon, the challenges we have conquered, the love we are harvesting,
the action we have been called to take.
Please bring an object for the gratitude altar that represents the blessings of your harvest along with a short written paragraph about the greatest blessing you have given and the greatest blessing you have received. 
There is such Power in collective Prayer and Intention
 Let us take this opportunity
to join our hearts
To call down a Blessing on all life!

Meaningful conversation has been at the heart of Women Interfaith gatherings. Here's an interview with poet David Whyte about the importance of wholehearted conversation:
