Relationships: Boundaries: April 13 2018

Charles West Mindfulness Group
Second and Fourth Friday of Month
1:00pm sharp
Party Room, Floor 31
Facilitator: Alainnah Robertson

Friday, April 13

We began our session with a guided Meditation. It’s fascinating how one’s Place of Peace can change.
It’s so interesting to share our experiences and enjoy the flights of fancy of our minds.

We examined what constitutes a healthy relationship with others. Once again, Carol shared with us
a challenge she was having with her relationship with a friend, and this demonstrated exactly
what we were going to talk about. She is certainly tuned in.

All Healthy Relationships have Boundaries. When setting these we have to, as follows:
  1. Recognize our feelings.
  2. Recognize when and how our boundaries have been crossed.
  3. Recognize how we need to set our boundaries.
  4. Communicate what boundaries you need to set.
  5. Take care of yourself first, before you can take care of others.
We applied these ideas to our own cases, and could clearly see how we had, and could now,
set boundaries in our own lives.

Carol was particularly pleased with the work we had done today. She stated that she is finding
that she is applying the principles we are discussing, and finding that they are helping her
make her life happier.

Homework: Practice meditation whenever you can: perhaps five minutes on going to sleep
at night and five minutes on waking up in the morning.

Consider what we have been discussing, and apply it to your life.
