Tribe of love,
February has arrived; an entire month we can dedicate to love! Love of self, community, family, and planet. Our world definitely needs more of it and we are just the ones to bring it.
EmbodyGR is expanding our circle of care by bringing love to our brothers and sisters who struggle with homelessness right here in downtown Grand Rapids. Every Monday we will offer yoga at Mel Trotter Ministries (MTM) from 10-11:00am & Heartside Ministry 11:15-noon. Both classes will be held in their respective chapel spaces. We are so grateful to be share our "feel better do good" mission to those who otherwise would not have access to the healing tools of yoga, meditation, and service. A huge shout out to lululemon, our Here To Be Partner, for their generous donation of beautiful new yoga mats for MTM. We are so grateful! We also need to thank the Isagenix Legacy Foundation for helping us expand our reach locally to bring health & wellness educational tools to those who struggle with homelessness.
Join us this week to learn more about Heartside Ministry, a local organization that helps neighbors discover their potential through arts, education and faith. Rev. Kelly VanBrouwer, Pastoral Care and Program Director at Heartside, will join us to share about their ministry, mission and ways we can get involved.
We will be making hand-crafted Valentine's Day cards this Wednesday night to share goodness with those who may be in need of some extra love. Bring any supplies if you are inspired.
On Monday, February 11 @11:15am we will be distributing the cards at Heartside. You are welcome to join in our yoga practice, give someone a card, have a one-on-one connection and fulfill our 'do good' mission. I hope to see you there!
See you on the mat Wednesday night. Bring someone who needs more love in their lives. I know you know just that person. Be a light for them. Stand for them. Call them, pick them up, and share our community. This is who we are and what we do. We feel better and we do good... each and every week!
Love, love, love,

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
“The EmbodyGR community embraces and supports, says ‘yes you can’ when the noisy inner voice says, ‘no you can’t’ – Kari Wilson, Community Member
