Anything is Possible

By Eric S.

Imagine my disappointment in January 2017: after spending three weeks in the hospital, I learned that my favorite meeting house, Nu Outlook, was closed.

Yes, we had a noon meeting close by, but my time for meeting (and before that, drinking) was after work.

It was clear that we needed a 5pm meeting at least once a week, somewhere in Pacific Heights. Why not that historic building on California and Webster, Congregation Sherith Israel?

I asked, and we were blessed with a new meeting place! Monday, April 17 was our first meeting. I became the secretary.  Well, our meeting grew, and one year later we were meeting seven days per week, 5pm-6pm Monday through Friday and 1pm-2pm on the weekends.

In April 2018, our Monday meeting took on a meditation and speaker discussion format, mimicking the format from The Leaky Cauldron in The Mission.  We pick a name from the basket and that person becomes the speaker of the day. Tag sharing begins, and lasts through 6pm.

What a blessing! Our meetings have anywhere from 15 to 30 participants, including a great deal of new members. The spirituality is palpable. Meditation calms the meeting from after-work anxiety, resulting in honest, meaningful sharing.

Anything is Possible has become a blessing to our community.
