The house is all decorated for the holidays, the kids are happily running around with their cousins, the smells from the kitchen fill the warm house, and someone starts talking about Trump.

For Americans, discussing politics at the dinner table has changed from an intellectual, logical discussion to something highly emotional and divisive. If you are worried about the topic coming up at your family gathering and ruining your festive mood, I created a healing meditation recording for you to listen to. With politics as they are, it seems the only way we are going to create positive change is with a spiritual solution. When we can recognize our similarities instead of our differences and do our job to heal the broken parts of ourselves, change has a better chance. If you dislike the contentious political climate in our country and worry about it infiltrating your family gatherings, try this healing technique to create peace within yourself first, and then allow that peace to impact those around you. It’s a combination of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy techniques and the Hawaiian healing technique of Ho’oponopono and it works.

Thank you! May you be happy, may you be well, may you be free from conflict. I wish you a peaceful and loving Thanksgiving to you and all who sit around your table.
