Transformation

This week’s readings explore the theme of transformation. We suggest this four step approa h to working with this sele tion: • • • • Read this sele tion! out loud if possi"le! se#en times. $well upon the phrase or senten e that tou hes you. Ask yourself what rele#an e or appli ation this has to you personally %inally! sit in the afterglow of these refle tions and open yourself to whate#er new insight or message the $i#ine might ha#e for you.
