Spiritual Practice for January - Thanksgiving Examen

"Energy follows attention...wherever you focus your attention is where the energy of your body, mind and spirit goes." - Louis M. Savary

This month we will be practicing the Thanksgiving Examen.  Each day (I prefer to review the day before I go to sleep)  you are invited to look at all the things that happened during the day for which you are thankful. As Louis M. Savary explains in his book The New Spiritual Exercises: "if you focus on the giving and receiving of love, your thinking will change for the better. If you focus on thinking good thoughts, your heart will grow more love."

You can mentally review your day, or you can journal about what you are thankful for. You may even do this simply at the dinner table with your family, talking about what happened during the day that you are thankful for. If you'd like a more in-depth explanation of the Examen, contact Naomi.
