February’s dinner was at Mother’s Cafe – a REALLY popular vegetarian/vegan restaurant in the Hyde Park area that gets pretty packed on Saturday nights, although it’s got a great comfortable vibe about it that doesn’t make you feel rushed or packed together like sardines. On Saturday evenings they have live music, which when the guy showed up we all thought, OH NO – because we were afraid it was going to be loud, but on that night it was chill he played a xylephone type instrument that was made of wood. Lovely background noise that is still easy to hear each other over.
If you go to Mothers – and you should – I HIGHLY recommend the Cheese Enchiladas with Verde Sauce. Very Delicious! Susan and Miranda got the Spinach Lasagna, which was huge and they said very tasty. Kelly got Nachos which was also huge and very good. I got a spice cake to go and that was nice and moist with great flavor. SO – Mother’s Cafe – Tasty vegan/vegetarian, large portions, lovely atmosphere. Try it.
NOW – ON TO THE CONVERSATION
Susan brought a book about Bonnie and Clyde named Bonnie and Clyde: The Lives Behind the Legend by Paul Schneider – which you can read a timeline and the first 20 pages here – look for the free sample button next to the book. She read it last year, and was surprised to learn that Clyde himself had a Near Death Experience. That led us to a whole discussion on “coming back” to do good or bad. Which lead to a discussion on free will, and how, interestingly, Bonnie and Clyde provided a diversion for the country during the dismal days of the Depression.
Sara brought a book too, named The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson. You can learn about that book here. This book discusses something we all within the group know to be true – that you can hold emotions in your body and that doing so can lead to illness. We discussed how past emotional traumas can be held in the body as well, causing weaknesses that can lead to injuries. We had a lengthy discussion about body work since some of the members of the group practice Reiki and other body work. We talked about different experiences we’ve had while giving and receiving Reiki, and how basic energy work can lend itself to overall strengthening of psychic abilities. Good stuff.
Our next dinner will be at Habisha and we’ll be enjoying Ethiopian food together. Ethiopian is different, there are no utensils and you pick everything up with this interesting bread. If you’ve never had it, Habisha is some of the best! The topic for discussion will be Channeling – and the different ways people channel, some people may be surprised to learn there are many different ways…some channel with Angels, some with Spirit Guides, others tap into energy and the actual person or event they are reading. The next dinner is available online if you would like to check it out here, like I mentioned we’ll be steering WAY CLEAR of SXSW and Downtown. So if you are looking for an interesting way to spend your Saturday night, minus the headache of finding parking, crowds, overall drunken foolishness – and would like to join us instead, you are invited!
Speaking of Channeling, on Traveling Psychic Supper Club Radio this week (3/27/14) we’ll be interviewing local Austin Psychic Jo Todd, who channels Invisible Presence Isaiah.
