Gather Around the Table… Let’s Chat
March 6 @ 8:00 PM - 8:55 PM EST
An event every week that begins at 8:00 PM on Sunday, repeating until June 1, 2022
Facilitator/Author Denise Mercer
Denise has shared at different speaking events that her dad being a recovering alcoholic was one of the greatest gifts to her life. She openly shares that she simply wanted to have lunch with her dad, but she knew that meant that she would have lunch with whoever still wanted to talk personally after the meeting. It took her years before she realized how those discussions around the table of people being vulnerable, laughing, building back from nothing, making amends, creating boundaries, sharing pain, and most importantly she enjoyed seeing them again and how far they had come in their smile and attitude.
Sometimes though time would pass and she would not see them and eventually ask “How is ___?” The answer was usually simple something like “back out there”, “haven’t heard”, “haven’t seen them”… she could see the sadness in her dad’s eyes but also that non-judgemental way he taught her which was “they are doing the best they can”.
Many of her best lessons took place around that table having lunch, the words she wrote after his death she never knew would be the blueprint she needed to save herself when the memories of her childhood sexual abuse came back at the age of 38 and the healing that would be needed to begin to recover and find her way out of the life choices she had made with her broken inner child.
Gather around the table via zoom with the author of My Father’s Table where discussions about responsibility, guiding principles, no regret, doing your best, and gratitude will inspire and motivate you to become the best YOU.
The best is YET to come!
