Eat Pray Love book meeting
Our first meeting discussed the spiritual journey of Elizabeth Gilbert as she traveled for one year to Italy, India and Indonesia. It was a great conservation among women that highlighted our memorable parts in the book, relating it to our present lives. A few of us read out loud parts in the book that impacted us.
Personally, my favourite parts in the book were the author's concept of happiness on pg. 260 and relationships on pg. 286. I also loved the idea of "prayer is the act of talking to God, while meditation is the act of listening." (pg. 131-2)
This book encouraged so many themes in our meeting such as: the simple act of receiving gratitude, your inner voice guiding you, self-reflection and a new idea of what a soulmate is, among others.
