Morning Mindset

No comments

It’s 7:30 a.m…. A new day and a new beginning at The Center at Blessed Sacrament in Hollywood, California… What was once a chaotic scramble for food… clothing and a shower has become an orderly oasis of peace and quiet…

The group is called Mind-Set

At the session I attended 11 men between the ages of 20 and 50 take seats and begin an hour of self exploration…

The program starts with 10 minutes of breathing and relaxation exercises after which coffee is served and the men discuss their situation… Anger… Hostility and Confusion are apparent.

Mid-way through the session the facilitator, Selene, distributes copies of ‘Words of Wisdom’ such as these by Eleanor Roosevelt…

“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness you are able to give”

Each person was then asked to related their experience to the concept of ‘joy’. At the conclusion of morning mind-set a more relaxed and positive attitude is obvious…

It’s an early morning step in the right direction.
